Infrastructure as a service

AIMES Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) can bring real value to your organisation by removing the traditional barriers to flexibility and innovation.

Delivered using either Windows or Linux, organisations can select a cloud solution appropriate for their specific needs and requirements, allowing them to focus on their end goals rather than IT systems.

BAAS (Back-up as a service)

AIMES offers a managed backup service on enterprise class hardware, deployed within AIMES’ fully owned and operated UK Data Centres. Each of our Data Centres is aligned to tier 3 standards, with multiple and diverse route network connections, as well as being ISO27001 and NHS IG Toolkit compliant. AIMES BaaS utilises Veeam technologies and comes as an optional extra when procuring AIMES IaaS or bespoke cloud service. Backups of Virtual Machines (VM) are taken and restored within our standard data centre, however offsite options are available upon request.
