Cloud Hosting for Businesses

Cloud hosting that has been perfected for use on the ground…

Free of upfront capital expenditure, cloud computing has already helped businesses streamline their IT operations, leaving more time available for core business objectives. Providing cutting edge solutions for over 8 years, Oakford is well placed to provide the very best cloud services for your business.

Delivered from our secure UK data centres, Oakford can offer your business the following solutions –


Hosted Desktop Server Hosting
A hosted desktop solution is a low maintenance, secure alternative to a traditional PC based network with an on premises server. Hosted desktops provide users with a Microsoft Windows desktop experience but via a thin client terminal, not a traditional PC. This makes the solution highly available, environmentally friendly and infinitely scalable whilst also reducing IT costs for your business.

An OIS hosted desktop can be accessed securely over an Internet connection from any location using a range of devices including PCs, laptops, thin client terminals, tablets and more.

Reduce IT support, power and capital expenditure by moving your server to the cloud. Oakford provides shared, dedicated and co-location services to suit businesses of all sizes. By hosting your server with us you will only be paying for the processing power, memory and storage that you use; it will also add resilience and flexibility to your computer system.

This will ensure your IT server costs grow with your business rather than demand large capital investments every few years.



Web Hosting Application Hosting
Your website represents your company to the whole world, delivering support, sales and information to a variety of people. Oakford provide maximum availability, backup and support services for all types of websites, whether a carefully coded HTML website or a Content Management System design (CMS).

Not happy with your current website or would like your website to load faster? Why not let our talented web design team create a fresh modern website for you.

An increasing number of organisations no longer provide software packages to their staff or customers as it is more difficult to support custom installations of software upon many different operating systems and devices. To make the software both easier to access for users and easier to support, organisations are choosing to host their applications with Oakford in our secure data centres.

By hosting an application your users will access the software via a web browser, making it easy to provide the software to large numbers of users and limiting the support requirements.

Email Hosting Cloud Storage
Email continues to be an integral part of any organisation which is why Oakford offers both OIS Webmail and Hosted Microsoft Exchange as stand-alone, enterprise email solutions. Take advantage of shared calendars, contact lists or even integration with your VoIP telephone system with peace of mind that Oakford will ensure the maximum uptime possible for your email solution. For those wishing to take things further than email, why not check out our Microsoft Office 365 solutions. Move your business data into the cloud with OIS. Whether you require a secure archive storage area or a high performance live storage area, our solution is the right choice for your business. The OIS cloud storage facility can be accessed from any Internet connected location, using a mix of devices including Microsoft Windows computers, Google Chrome books, Apple Mac computers, iPad, Android tablets and more.
