With more and more businesses making the move to the cloud for things like e-mail and other collaboration tools, there are plenty of services taking a run at the resulting business. But not all services are made equal and when it comes to email hosting, security is a major concern. Luckily, services like those from SherWeb which feature a SLA (Service Level Agreement) is a great place to start looking for the best host on the market.
SherWeb offers a wide variety of features for those who choose to leverage its offering, including an easy to use interface with unified contact menus, easier searches, and a mobile functionality that includes an enhanced Web app geared toward Outlook. SherWeb boasts easy mailbox migration, thanks to proprietary tools for just that purpose in addition to top-notch reliability thanks to major names like Compellent, Dell (News - Alert), and Cisco. The email hosting provider also offers extremely rapid customer service, with an average hold time of just 30 seconds. SherWeb can achieve results like this with a major focus on backup as well as failover processing, which allows SherWeb to offer a 99.999 uptime SLA agreement with SAS (News - Alert) 70 Type II certification.
While all of this sounds great, it doesn't mean near as much until SherWeb's customer list is considered. It works with a variety of firms, including Ingram Micro (News - Alert) and Avnet, and even earned a slot on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 listing, meaning it's one of the 500 fastest-growing technology firms in North America. SherWeb brings that all to users—including 25 gigabytes of Exchange 2013 mailbox storage—for just $7.95 per month per user.
That's a lot of quality features going into SherWeb's operations but even for those businesses that don't end up going with SherWeb for their cloud services, what really matters is the overall quality of the service. The high availability—at least four-nines if not five—backed up with strong security systems to protect that vital data stored in the cloud and a focus on backup are all key points to be concerned.
SherWeb’s robust portfolio may not be for everybody, but it's a great place to start looking.
