Dedicated server rental ensures data integrityAvoid complexity and risk by outsourcing data centre infrastructure Security, speed, simplicity Renting a dedicated server from a reputable hosting service offers higher performance, security, email stability, and control. In an age where data protection is paramount and speed is critical, a dedicated server offers numerous advantages for high traffic sites and data-heavy operations. With dedicated server rental, the provider steps in to take over most of the management, including infrastructure, management, security, memory, storage and IT support. Dedicated server rental is a proactive service that can reduce overheads and offer a better return on investment with a lower initial outlay and lower labor costs, also simplifying data management without compromise. Dedicated server rental benefits Dedicated server rentals come in a variety of packages with numerous add-ons available. A good choice is a Hosted Private Rental Cloud that has no minimum rental period, so it can be used during relocation or for short-term projects. Immediate startup means the rental period begins at switch on rather than delivery. The level of customization available is another important factor. A rental service may offer the choice of a Linux or AIX platform, as well as scale and configure hardware to fit requirements. Execution is simple with no need to hire additional staff or increase in infrastructure expenditure. Rental companies provide the expertise to have a reliable and suitable system up and running. Hosted solution service level agreements Ideally, a service level agreement should offer 100% uptime and government-grade security and resilience as standard. A hosted environment also allows data access provided from a dual feed connection via a redundant switching platform. Speed up to 25Mb/s with Point to Point or VPN available as options. Two main options are generally available in dedicated server rental: infrastructure only and platform as a service. In an infrastructure only hosted environment, applications, data, runtime, middleware and operating system are client managed while virtualization, servers, storage, and networking is provider managed. In the platform as a service hosted environment, applications and data are clients managed while runtime, middleware, operating system, virtualization, servers, storage, and networking is provider managed. Operating system support Dedicated server rental plans offer a variety of options and levels of management. Having the operating system provider-managed can be cost-effective and beneficial to business reputation, particularly where dedicated IT staff are thin on the ground. Operating system updates and support relieves the burden of server management from the dedicated server owner. Operating system support may include updates to the core system in order to acquire the latest security fixes, patches, and system-wide vulnerability resolutions. Updates to core operating systems include kernel upgrades, service packs, application updates, and security patches that keep the server secure and safe. Dedicated server rental is ideal for clients who have less technical knowledge or capacity to hire in expertise on a permanent basis, which can be a costly exercise. As such, it is a flexible, highly secure, simple and speedy solution to server conundrums that any sized operation may face.
