If you decide to take your work to the cloud, there are many models you can choose from. Generically they fall into any of the three well known types – IaaS, PaaS and SaaS. In a large number of cases, the needs of businesses can be met by hiring software to use over the Internet, however this is not possible every time.
Often a situation arises where the nature of your requirements mean using a SaaS solution will not work. You need more control over your server and your application. In this situation, a dedicated server hosting is a great solution.
This solution allows your business to rent a dedicated server configured the way you need with the OS and applications you want to deploy. All of this is managed professionally by the team of experts that only a data center can afford. Once you have created a server image, you can create one or multiple servers based on your business requirements. Companies create and release servers routinely based on seasonal demand, thereby ensuring performance is never jeopardized and you only pay for the capacity you need.
There are many other advantages of dedicated server hosting. Briefly, they can be listed as:
Top quality environment management, power, cooling, physical security and backup – all the responsibility of the data center.
A dedicated support team available on a 24×7 basis.
Managed services guarantee a minimum level of performance.
Firewall operation and intrusion detection.
Continuous monitoring of the licensed hardware’s performance and timely action is taken to prevent any failures.
Upgrade the server configuration with ease.
A cloud service provider typically replicates all data between several data centers to ensure that the possibility of service disruption is minimized. This can offer better protection against natural and man-made disasters than if you were replicating the servers yourself.
Many dedicated server hosting options are available to users. The availability of multiple options can make selecting and using a dedicated hosting solution a complex exercise. Added to the mix are issues of bandwidth pooling and management. If your core competency does not lie in the IT field, you can sometimes get overwhelmed with the variety of choices and end up with a solution that is less than perfect.
