MBS is known for researching, testing, and setting Information Technology (IT) best practice strategies for Christian churches and ministries. Now we offer private cloud services tailored to Christian churches and ministries.
MBS has a rack in what is arguably the most advanced datacenter on the planet: Switch Communications’ SuperNAP. Known as the Switch SuperNAP, here are some quick details:
- It is located in southern Nevada (a region that is considered to be the least susceptible to natural disasters in the U.S.).
- It has four separate power sources and 28 Internet providers whose large trunks run through it (thus SuperNAP, or Super Network Access Point).
- It hosts sixteen federal agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security and the National Security Administration.
- Because of who it hosts, if it gets to running on the last power source (power generation), it has the authority to commandeer fuel depots if necessary to stay up.

MBS is excited to be in The Switch SuperNAP, and we are amazed at the fingerprints of God in pointing us there and working out the details. We have fully redundant systems and a lot of capacity with plenty of room for growth. If you are a Christian church or ministry, we’d be honored to host your servers.
- Exchange: Connect any Exchange 2010-enabled client (like Outlook) to your hosted Exchange 2010 server; includes OWA & ActiveSync to mobile devices. Includes email, calendaring, task management, and contacts, etc with inbound & outbound SPAM filtering.
- SPAM: Your email is filtered by our Barracuda SPAM Filter 600 (included at no extra cost for our Exchange servers).
- VoIP: Your phones (handsets and/ or softphones) connect and communicate through your hosted VoIP PBX server; includes voicemail and secure instant messaging.
- SQL: You get a SQL database on our Microsoft SQL server with daily backup (one month of daily backup history kept on file) and secure remote access.
In the near future we will be adding the ability to host file servers using technology very similar to Dropbox, but our solution will be private and secure.
Because we only serve churches and ministries, we are able to do this with excellence, and with modest pricing. And our support is all domestic!
