The Australian Centre for Advanced Computing and Communications (AC3) and NetLeverage are providing co-location services based on a plug-and-play appliance that allows remote access to applications using a Web browser.
Steven Hasani, CEO of NetLeverage, said supporting remote sites can be a problem for IT managers.
"Systems need to be backed up, supported and upgraded on a regular basis," Hasani said.
"Databases need to be kept [synchronized], and standard operating environments need to be maintained."
The product, dubbed ThinPoint, supports load balancing, application publishing, shadowing and seamless Windows publishing.
NetLeverage claims Thinpoint is bandwidth-friendly and inexpensive, as third-party licences and support staff are not required.
