Secura Welcome Aspidistra To The Virtual Private Cloud


By Matthew Reeve on 16th July, 2020.

The Secura team is excited to announce that Aspidistra has joined our Virtual Private Cloud.

About Aspidistra

Aspidistra is based in Kingsbridge, South Devon. Founded in 1999, the highly experienced team of software developers creates bespoke integrated e-commerce solutions for clients across the UK and Ireland.

The team specialises in B2B e-commerce websites, helping customers improve their efficiency and profitability with Shopfront, their unique B2B e-commerce platform which integrates with Sage and Pegasus accounting systems to deliver a highly personalised customer experience.

Aspidistra’s creativity and technical expertise deliver websites with integrated e-commerce solutions, which help manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors improve and succeed online.

Flexibility Is Key

One of the most important considerations when selecting their new cloud partner was a flexible solution with proactive support. On top of this, they wanted to avoid large capex costs for refreshing its private cloud hardware.

Aspidistra needed a cloud hosting partner that could support its B2B e-commerce platforms with robust infrastructure and operating system management capabilities.

Secura was able to provide them with the flexible, fully managed solution at the low OPEX cost they had been looking for.

The VPC Solution

Aspidistra now enjoy the benefits of Secura’s highly scalable Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) solution. The VPC is designed to flex to business demands, with a resource-based pricing model that enables billing based on usage. This cost-effective feature allows our customers to scale their hosting requirements to match business growth and gives peace of mind that monthly hosting bills can be tailored in-line with revenue.

Secura’s Virtual Private Cloud is built upon robust infrastructure foundations, with a highly available 10Gbps MPLS ring network between UK-based Tier 3+ data centres to ensure no single point of failure across the service. This is reflected in the VPC’s 99.99% Service Level Agreement (SLA).

Aspidistra also benefit from access to our ISO 20000 certified service desk team, which provides fully managed support, 24/7, 365 days a year, to ensure uninterrupted performance on the platform.

Secura CEO, Ollie Beaton, commented:

“Secura’s Virtual Private Cloud is designed with flexibility in mind. For software businesses such as Aspidistra who value a highly scalable cloud solution, it’s an ideal fit, so we’re delighted that they have chosen Secura to support their applications and websites.
