Bodhost began offering hosting services since 1999, with a culture of proactive services whose primary drive is for enabling customer (and employee) growth with locations in the US, India and the UK. With the changing landscape of hosted services, Bodhost is presently focused on cloud computing with a target customer base of enterprise users.
Bodhost’s site advertised that the organization is in the process of being certified by IBM’s SAP in the area of hosting capability. This certification should increase the confidence of potential customers seeking cloud services.
Uptime & Reliability
Offering 100% uptime guarantee
Stating that since they design, build, and operate their own data centers, Bodhost offers a 100% uptime for their customer’s services. Additionally, carrier neutrality and data-center environments with leading-edge levels of physical, network security, and fire suppression are advertised.
Fairly standard features
The first page on the company’s website directs current and potential customers by sorting them into two groups: cloud and traditional hosting. With many customers still having genuine need of traditional hosting or have not migrated to the cloud computing model, this distinction makes it easy to get the right information quickly.
Bodhost offers public, hybrid, private and Hyper-V clouds to address the needs of a diverse customer base. Additionally, corporate services include data center, sandbox, disaster recovery and desktop services.
Nice support for most issues
Support is offered by the site’s email service, live chat or toll-free line. Bodhost also features FAQ, white paper, and site-based forums for easy research & resolution. Predicting growth is also advertised, so companies can scale their operations easily.
Unusual Pricing Structure
Unlike many hosting sites, Bodhost does not advertise standard prices; a “predict your costs” page displays services such as usage, storage, use time, RAM and the number of x5660 CPU’s buyers and the results are displayed. While this method may be involved and take an extra bit of effort over published rates for standard services, many customers could see an advantage to selecting exactly what they need. One advantage advertised is that services are not based on a yearly contract with a need for new contracts every time a change is made. According to the site, if you deactivate your services, only a modest storage fee is applied.
Nice hosting option
Bodhost makes selection of services and features easy with a large selection of scalability, storage, processing and bandwidth options available. A focus on tailoring hosting solutions that focus not only on the customer’s current needs, but also on predicting future needs impart a sense of confidence not always felt with some hosting sites.
