Welcome to the Iron Orbit Orbital Academy!

Greetings, Orbital Cadet,

Welcome to the Iron Orbit Orbital Academy! Our mission at the Academy is to help you understand what our solutions are, how they work, and what their benefits are.

Not familiar with what hosted desktops, hosted servers, disaster recovery, redundancy, and outsourced IT are? Not to worry—you can find out here, quickly and easily, in the Academy’s short, easy-to-read articles on a variety of topics related to IT hosting and the cloud. These articles, or “lessons,” were put together with the busy, non-technical worker in mind—so even if you only have a few minutes to spare, and you don’t know the first thing about IT, you should be able to learn everything you want to know about hosted IT solutions from the Academy.

We try to keep the articles in the Academy as objective vendor-neutral as possible. The point of this site is to help you understand what certain hosted solutions and hosting technologies are, not to convince you to buy our specific solutions and services. If we mention our own solutions and services, it’s usually only to use them as examples, or if we’re explaining Iron Orbit-specific technologies such as Atomic Speed Technology. If you want to read about why we think our hosted solutions and services are the ones you should buy, you can always head over to the main Iron Orbit site (aka the mothership).

Also, you may be wondering, why should I be interested in learning about hosted IT solutions? The simplest answer is that hosted IT solutions can benefit your business in a number of ways. They can lower your IT costs, decrease your IT management responsibilities and hassles, increase the security and reliability of your IT assets, and allow you to access your files and applications from anywhere via the internet. Think that’s a bit of a biased assessment? Well, there’s no harm in reading through some of the unbiased articles of the Academy, and judging for yourself if hosted IT solutions are a good fit for your business.

Finally, if you don’t understand a term on the main Iron Orbit site or want to know more about a subject related to hosted IT solutions but don’t see any articles here that address it, we are accepting requests for future Orbital Academy article subjects at info@ironorbit.com. If you read one of our articles about a subject but would like to know more, you may be able to find the info you’re looking for on our main site’s FAQ page; if not, you can always contact us at info@ironorbit.com or 1-888-753-5060.

Thank you for visiting, and happy learning!
