WHY CENTURYLINK

More Innovation
Less Administration

Free up your valuable IT resources to focus on business innovation with our managed dedicated server hosting solutions. 

Focus on your business
Business success comes from your IT organization’s ability to differentiate through technology innovation. With over 600 engineers who possess hundreds of certifications, we can extend your current IT staff. We take care of the procurement, configuration and installation of servers and OS licenses, as well as hardware and OS management.

Manage your IT costs
Many IT departments are dealing with flat or declining budgets. Dedicated server hosting allows you to shift from making capital investment in hardware and software to more predictable monthly operation expenditures.

Minimize your risks
Dedicated environments allow you to achieve higher levels of security than shared environments. Hosted within multi-tier secure data centers, which perform ongoing active compliance audits for SSAE-16, HIPAA, PCI/DSS, FISMA, and ISO 21007, these environments provide you access to a suite of managed cybersecurity solutions—each of which ensures you meet your compliance and security regulations.

Flexible Solutions
IT departments need to react quickly to business and market changes. To assure you can respond quickly we offer hosting solutions across over 50 data centers globally; direct access to CenturyLink's suite of Hybrid IT solutions, colocation, dedicated managed hosting services, cloud and network; all of which come with flexible options that allow you to quickly respond to market changes and come out on top.
