The advantages to virtualization are vast, including cost-effectiveness, reduction of capital expenses, elasticity and agility, high-availability, and ease of migration. Not every IT application, however, is a good fit for virtualization. Like toothbrushes and used tires, some things, it turns out, are not meant to be shared.
Dedicated servers from HOSTING can be part of a managed cloud solution for small enterprises with just a few servers or large-scale businesses like online gaming or digital advertising. These servers are single-tenant within a hosted solution that does not share resources with other servers. A dedicated server could be a viable component of an IT solution for environments that include any of the following attributes:
- Regulatory compliance of specific applications (PCI, HIPPA)
- Need for Full Root Access
- High disk I/O
- High memory or CPU requirements
- Limited in-house IT infrastructure or resources
Everything we do to power a dedicated server solution, from the layout of our world-class data centers, to the configuration of our network, has been meticulously researched, designed, and tested to exceed even the toughest industry standards.
