SSD Cloud Servers
When you need rapid and scalable access to dedicated managed resources cloud servers are the obvious choice.
What is a Cloud Server?
And what exactly can you do with it?
A Cloud Server performs and behaves just like a stand-alone server. It can be accessed remotely in just the same way, applications can be installed on it, it has it's own IP addresses, memory, processes, files, applications.
It is a truly green solution in today's ever energy hungry world, as many cloud server VPS can exist on a single powerful server reducing energy costs and otherwise underutilized hardware
A Cloud Server differs from traditional VPS becuase it's resources are distributed across storage platforms and hypervisors which provides redundancy, reslience giving the cloud an ability to self heal in the event of a problem. In many ways, then, it's even better than a dedicated server as it's more available and more instant.
- Each Cloud Server performs and executes exactly like a stand-alone server
- It has its own IP addresses, port numbers, tables, filtering and routing rules.
- It has its own configuration files for system and application software.
- It uses its own versions of system libraries or modify existing ones.
- You can add, modify or delete any file, including files in the root.
- You can install your own application software or customize the installation
- It can be clustered with other Cloud Servers to provide a redundant and resilient solution
- It can be rapidly backed up or migrated to other hardware nodes
- Dynamic resource management allows real-time changes of key system resources such as CPU, memory, network, disk and I/O.
- It reduces operating system management as patches and updates can be centrally managed by Hosting UK
- It can be restored from backup or re provisioned to it's original state in minutes.
- Cloud servers can be provisioned in seconds
Things you can do with your Cloud Server
Just like a dedicated server you can purpose your Cloud Server to do anything you need. It may be a web server, an applications server, a mail server or a combination of all. Of course you'll need to make sure that you select enough CPU, Disk and RAM for the tasks you intend to run on your VPS but you can add more as you need to.
