How Coreix Can Fulfil All Your Colocation Needs

Increasing Need for Server Clustering

An article this week on the Techi website highlighted the increasing need for server clustering. As businesses move more of their resources online, it means that they have more to lose should anything go wrong. If something bad were to happen, a business could lose all of their documents, pictures, and other data – proving disastrous. This attempt at eliminating the risk is leading to a higher demand for server clustering. This type of setup is also important because it provides businesses with the resources they need to meet their data demands.

What are Managed Servers?

Once an online business becomes successful, the website is likely to be receiving too much traffic to be eligible for shared hosting. This means that some type of dedicated server option will be required. Many managers will not have the time or knowledge to manage their own server, meaning that they will need to turn to other solutions. One of the most popular ways to deal with this situation is to choose managed servers.

Disaster Recovery – Is It For Me?

If you are dealing with important data, you will need to have a means of protecting it. Our modern technology has revolutionised the way we deal with information, but plenty of threats out there could compromise the data we store.

What is Server Clustering?

Sometimes one server will not be enough to serve the needs of a business. This can occur, for example, as an enterprise grows and begins to demand too many resources on the machine. Even the most high-performance server can struggle if there is too much demand put upon it, so this is why server clustering is often a good option.

Why Choose Colocation?

It can be difficult for small to medium-sized businesses to manage their web hosting needs in-house. It might be too expensive for the company to justify purchasing their own servers and creating an IT team. This is a problem because there are businesses that do need to have similar resources to a large IT department and without this they will struggle to survive. One possible solution for this type of situation is to choose colocation.

What are Managed Server Services?

Once a website (or a collection of websites) grows beyond a certain size, it can become more difficult for the owner to find shared server options. It is at this stage that many people decide that the best option for them will be to get their own dedicated server. This would allow them to have access to all the available resources on one full server. In many instances, the best option for the person in this situation will be for them to choose managed server services.

How to Choose Between a Dedicated or Shared Server

The choice between a dedicated server and shared server is not something that is made once and then forgotten about. It is a choice that needs to be considered on a fairly regular basis as a website grows. The vast majority of website owners will only ever need a shared server, but those individuals who start to become successful may decide that this no longer fits their needs. The size of their operation means that they now require a dedicated server.

Reasons for Choosing a Custom Made Server

A custom made server can be a good option for people who have specific requirements that are not really catered for with a regular server. It is recommended that people consider their reasons for choosing this type of tailor made system because otherwise it can be an unnecessary expense. It is also important that individuals are in a position to manage this type of server because otherwise it can be a steep learning curve.

What You Need to Know When Purchasing a Dedicated Server

The decision to purchase a dedicated server can be a good one so long as people know what they are getting themselves into. This is something that will give people far more control over their websites, but it is an investment that may be unwise to rush into. The more information that people consider before making their choice the less likely they will be to have later regrets.
