Hardware as a Service “HaaS”

Hardware as a Service, also known as “HaaS”, helps businesses get Firewalls, Servers, Wireless, Workstations, Notebooks, Backup Servers, Infrastructure, VoIP/Phones, and other equipment without a large upfront capital investment.

With our HaaS solutions, you can get new or upgraded equipment by paying a small monthly fee, and you never have to worry about maintenance, upgrades, licensing, end of life, or downtime. Plus, we’ll deliver it directly to your office and install it, stress free.

If you are looking to transform your IT systems and strategy, leverage up to date Technology to increase your company’s uptime and reduce your risk. If this investment was not in your budget, we can reduce your overhead with IT as an operating expense versus a capital expense.

With rapidly changing technology, if you don’t stay current, you might experience security flaws, downtime, performance issues on your hardware, or trouble with support. Regularly upgraded and maintained networks have many fewer issues and give you more reliability and performance gains for your staff. We take care of all your hardware, licensing, and IT services. With our proactive monitoring, we identify issues before they cause you any downtime. A scalable service model increased security with fewer disruptions and a robust, sustainable IT infrastructure are all within your reach.

How Is HaaS Helpful for Companies Without Internal IT Teams?

With HaaS, you can put the pressure back on your IT provider, your MSP. We’re constantly evaluating what the best products are because we service what we install. If it fails on us, we are responsible to fix it.

What Types of Hardware Are Used in HaaS?

Here are a some of the Technologies deployed through HaaS:

  • Firewall as a Service (FaaS)
  • Backup /BDR as a service (BaaS)
  • Device as a Service: Notebooks, Tablets or PC’s (DaaS)
  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
  • Printers (PaaS)
  • Wireless as a Service (WaaS)
  • Voice as a Service (VaaS)

There is no need to own all these IT assets when you can now acquire and utilize them as a service.

Is HaaS the fit for your business?

It comes back to technology planning, ask yourself:

  • What assets are aging or at the end of their life cycle?
  • Where am I noticing some performance or reliability issues?
  • What expansion or acquisitions can my current infrastructure support?

Often, an IT solution was not in the budget. So, instead of a Capital Expense you can run this as an Operating Expense.

According to ZDNet, 30% of companies are affected by ransomware. When your hardware isn’t well maintained, you’re more vulnerable for attacks. By having better equipment and standards in place, you’re improving your security posture.

With hardware as a service, you enjoy a wealth of benefits from staying current with the latest technologies and security, all while balancing your cash flow and having peace of mind that your business network is being monitored and being taken care of.
