Scenario


A newly-established SME had around 10 staff and required an MS SQL database for holding customer information, as well as in-house data. At the very beginning, the firm wanted to keep investment costs low, so was not planning a traditional set-up requiring purchase of physical servers, storage and network infrastructure. The company was looking for server hosting services in Hong Kong.


PCCW Solutions Server Cloud was ideal for hosting the SME’s MS SQL database, as ready-to-use infrastructure including servers, storage and network was available on-demand. The company was able to host a database instantly after subscribing to our server cloud services for just $288 a month. We also offer flexible contract periods, which meant the SME could arrange to build its own private server over whichever period of time suited the firm best.
