How to choose a Webhost

04.05.2015 (1:17 am) – Filed under: Uncategorized ::

A web hosting is a service provided to the webmaster to host their website via World Wide Web (www). Web hosting companies provide a space on their server which they own and lease for use by the client for providing internet connectivity, storage and services necessary to serve files for a web site. Deciding a right web host is very important because you are going to launch your website their and should be secure enough to handle your data and information. Basically, this way you are going to host your website, put your company name, sell products and services and also interact with customers.

Trying to choose a good and reliable web host can be quite confusing for most of the people especially when there are so many web hosting sites. Make sure you have some basic idea about what you expect from a web hosting company before you choose to buy one.

Also one needs to decide that you want to start a website or a blog. If you start a website then one needs to have a good command over html, script language like php, asp, javascript, ajax etc. Also, one can use CMS (Content Management Software)The most easy one which I found is starting a blog like wordpress, blogspot, typepad etc. They come with pre-installed scripts and one just needs to edit it according to their needs.

Below I have discussed some points on how to choose a good web hosts in details:

1) Windows or Linux Hosting: If you are using PHP and MySQL  to build your website then i would recommend using Linux Hosting as it is more stable and more programming scripts can be run on that. If you are using asp and .net then go for Windows Hosting. Anyway, i have found Linux Hosting comes at a cost cheaper than Windows Hosting.

2) Uptime and Downtime of Web Host: It is the most important factors when choosing a web host.

What is Uptime ?  An Uptime is the time during which the website the fully operational (viewable and usable).
What is Downtime? Conversely, it is the time during which it is not functional.
So a web host should have a good uptime percentage. Generally it is told in percentage. Therefore, a web host should have an uptime guarantee of 99.5-99.99% which is realistic and considered to be very good in most cases.

3) Free or Paid Web Hosting: The thumb rule says that a web host charge fees to provide better services, customer support and superior web reliability. Whereas, a free web hosting do provide you lots of webspace but they may charge you to upgrade services and facilities. You may have limited facilities like limited databases, sub-domain, e-mail configure etc. They charge you nothing for hosting your sites on exchange of back links and ads supported pages on it. I recommend to go for paid hosting click here.

4) Look for features in Web Hosts: The most important features a good web host should have are Email Features (with anti-spam, virus filters), Programming/ Software Support, Free Website Plugins Scripts, Fantastico (Pre-Installed Scritps like wordpress, joomla, photogallery, commerce shopping cart), Sitebuilder feature to help you build your website quickly, 24 hrs customer support, Dedicated servers and SSL (Secure Socket Layer) for those who plan to run retail website online for accepting payments and exchanging of financial information, secure server is a must.

5) Check the support system: Before buying a host or domain, try mailing them asking for more information from sales department. Check how fast they reply and what technical details they provide you.

6) Beware of Cheap Web Hosting: If you want to start a business online, retail website or blogging purpose whatever may be. Don’t get fooled by cheap web hosting because you are going to start a website, try investing in a good web hosting which is having all important features discussed above with affordable prices.

7) Money back guarantee: Also try and check if the web hosting company gives you the refund facility incase you are not satisfied with the web host features and facilities. Make sure that if you are not satisfied, you can always get your money back, or at least, the unused portion of your fees. Cheap hosting companies, and even the reputable ones, are notorious for not providing refunds. If you pay them, assume your money to be gone. Make sure you they have an initial refund period if you aren’t happy.

These are some guidelines you should consider before buying a webhost. Also share your ideas in regard to this post.

How to choose a dedicated server!

15.02.2015 (7:34 am) – Filed under: Uncategorized ::

So you’ve outgrown your shared host and it’s time now to move on to the real stuff. 
Yes we are talking about dedicated servers, those byte crunching beasts. Figuring out all of the options and services can be very confusing.
But No Worry!!
I will try and give you some tips and hopefully guide to your perfect server.

So let’s not waste any time and start with first segment.

What is a Dedicated Server?

Dedicated Server is a single computer connected to a network (internet). This computer and all of it’s processing power is dedicated to a single person or organization. Meaning that the computer resources are not shared by anyone else. You have the full control of the machine and you are free to run any software you want on that computer. 

Generally dedicated servers are used to serve web page requests ( html, images, videos …etc) but they can be used for many other purposes as well.

Do I need one or more servers  ?

To simplefy things we will divide the use of dedicated servers into these two groups:

Full Web site Hosting
Specific Service Hosting (Database, email , httpd …etc)
Single Web site Hosting

Hosting of a single or several web sites. In this kind of setup , all of the services/programs (http software, DB software, email software…etc) are installed and running on one dedicated server. Sometimes these services/programs can also be referred as “servers” them self.
This is the common setup for small to medium trafficked web sites since all of the necessary software needed to run the web site are located on one physical machine.  
Advantage to of this setup is that it lowers the cost, but disadvantage is that all of the machine resources are shared by all of the software and processes.

Specific Service Hosting

Hosting of a single software or service on it’s own dedicated machine. All of the resources on the machine are dedicated mainly for one type of service or functionality. For example, one might host only Database Software on the server so that all of the resources on that machine are only dedicated for processing of Database Queries. You are able to handle more queries, or deliver more pages.
Usually medium to high trafficked web sites will run this kind of setup.  

Traditional setup will consist of one or more server that will only handle web (http) request , then one or more servers only handling database requests and maybe one or more servers only handling processing of the emails. Theoretically there is no limitation on the amount of servers. As a group working together these servers are used to process in millions of requests a day.

Which setup do you choose ?

This of course depends on the amount of requests and traffic that your web site will be receiving. So to be able to answer this question we need to first understand little bit about what services are needed in order for web site to be accessed by the user.

Generally today’s dynamic web sites require two main service types to deliver a full working web site to the user’s browser.

WEB SERVERS / WEB SCRIPTS ( apache, IIS, php, perl, java )
DATABASE SERVER (MYSQL, MSSQL, ORACLE)

Use of the word “servers” in the above text is referring to the application / software and not to the physical machine. This is a common term used to describe the type of application.

Web server handles all of the initial requests from the browser and decides on how and where data from the Database is returned. 
Database server handles requests from the web server in a form of queries. These queries retrieve data from the storage (hard disk) and return it to the web server.

As you can see both web and database server work together to deliver the final product (web page) to the user. 

Usually web server handles more of the logic part so FASTER CPU and bigger MEMORY are always in need more then Hard Drive speed.
While database server handles more of data retrieval so FASTER HD and bigger MEMORY are always in need more then cpu speed.

In any case more memory is always needed :)

It’s important to note that all of the server software always uses some of the CPU, MEMORY and HARD DISK resources. Eventually they start fighting over the available resources. 
One way to stop this fight over the resources is to separate them onto each own dedicated server.

Another reason to separate service types is that is easier to optmize the machine to run well for one specific task then it is for all of the tasks.
For example:

Since we now know that Database needs faster Hard Drives , maybe we use more expensive faster Hard Drives in DB machine , and leave the cheaper hard drives on WEB machines where HD speed is not as important.
But maybe instead we use faster processors on WEB machines since they perform most of the logic.

Doing it like this we have optimal performance without wasting resources and $ $ $ !

These are just general suggestions , and depending on the web site and it’s functionality these configurations will vary.

Server Features and Components.

Ok now that you understand what each (web, db) server is hungry for, how do you know what components to get?
Because of the sheer amount of different types and models of each component I would need to write several books just to cover that subject. 
So I am just going to give you some general guides for each type of component, which whould help you on your next server purchase.

CPU Speed:

This is a no brainer. More speed (Ghz) that processor has the faster it can do the calculations and faster the pages are going to get returned to the user.
Some CPU architectures are known to perform better then others in server setups so I suggest you do some research on that subject. 

Number of CPU Cores / Processors:

Another no brainer. More cores or processors your server has, more taks it can do simultaneously. Since most of the actions on the server are based on requests and each request usually spawns a separate process, you can see how more CPU Cores enables the server to handle multiple requests at the same time.

Amount of RAM:

I think you see the pattern here “MORE”. Needless to say that more RAM your server has, more requests it can handle at the same time. Reason for that is that each request requires certain amount of RAM so that it can be processed. This amount is dependent of various factors like: Software type, Operating System , Installed Modules …etc
For example popular web server software APACHE can take about 7mb to 15mb of RAM per request or process and that’s not accounting for any other processes already running or being spawned to compliment that each request.

Memory is probably best investment you can make in your dedicated server.

Hard Drive RPM speed

Again the faster the disk spins, quicker it can get to the data on disk. Some popular Har Disk speeds are : 7200RPM , 10000RPM and  15000RPM. 
Biggest performance increase by faster Hard Drives will be seen by applications which access the Disk often. Some of those applications are: Database servers, File Servers and Video Streaming servers.

SATA vs SCSI vs SAS

If you were wondering what all of these acronyms are related to , they are the 3 most common Hard Drive interfaces used in dedicated servers. 
Starting from left with SATA being the most affordable but usually not being the best performer.  While with SCSI generally you get better performance then SATA but at much higher cost and with a lot less disk space. With SAS you get better performance then SCSI and you also get more disk space.
Of course there is a lot more differences between these interfaces. Luckily there is tons of articles on the internet explaining it all. I suggest you spend some time researching.

Generally unless you are running very High Transaction DB server you are fine with SATA. And if you are looking for best performance and you don’t care about the cost then go with SAS.

To RAID or not to RAID

So yes we are still stuck with the hard drives. When you see a word “RAID” being used in a server setup , that means that server has 2 or more HD’s joined in an array forming one logical unit. Raid usually provides increased storage reliability through redundancy. There are different RAID setups and you’ve probably seen some: RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5 , RAID 10 …etc
Two most common ones you will see in server setups are RAID 1 and RAID 5

What you need to know about RAID 0 is that provides you with some performance and increased total disk space but has no redundancy. If one drive fails, you loose your data. 

RAID 1 provides redundancy thru mirroring and in certain cases performance increase, but you do not get increased disk space. If one drive fails you can still continue operating and be able to replace the broken drive without loss of data. This setup requires two Hard Drives.

RAID 5 provides redundancy and increased disk space. It requires minimum on 3 Hard drives. Maximum of disk space you can have is :( Size of Smallest Drive) * (Number of Drives – 1). If one HD fails you can still continue your operations.

RAID can be implemented via two common methods, via software or via hardware. 
Software RAID uses Computer resources  while Hardware RAID uses it’s own dedicated resource on the card.
If you have a powerful machine then performance difference between Hardware and Software RAID could be negligable

Generally it is thought that if available Hardware RAID is a better choice. 

If you have an option to “RAID”  your server, I say go for it, at least RAID 1. Servers are 24hr nonstop workhorses and any interruption due to single Hard Drive point of failure could cause serious downtime for your web site.

Bandwidth

Bandwidth is the term used to describe the amount of data that server will deliver over period of time. Hosting companies can choose to offer various pricing structures for cost of bandwidth.
But some of the most popular ones are:

Metered Bandwidth
Unmetered Bandwidth

Metered bandwidth packages usually come with certain amount of included bandwidth a month and if going over the included limit you are charged certain fee per transferred GB ( GigaByte ) of data.

Unmetered bandwidth packages allow you to to transfer as much as you can at the maximum included transfer rate. This maximum transferred rate is measured in Mbps ( megabits per second ).

Each pricing structure type offers its own advantages and disadvantages.

With metered bandwidth you usually have access to much faster connection so your speed can burst up to the hosting provider’s maximum bandwidth capabilities. This enables the user to download the file quicker if capable. Since you are charged per amount of data transfer, you are only limited to the speed of your uplink port.

With unmetered bandwidth you are limited (capped) to certain speed of your connection (10Mbps, 50Mbps, 100Mbps …etc). Amount of data you transfer is not measured. In nutshell hosting company says here is your max speed so you use it up to the max speed or not , you are charged one flat fee for that speed.

With metered bandwidth you have to make sure that amount of data transfer included a month can actually be delivered over a included uplink port. 
For example : Lets say with your server you get 6,000 GB of outbound transfer a month but your uplink port speed is 10 Mbps.
With this type of uplink speed if you were to continuously transfer for one month at the maximum speed of 10 Mbps you would only be able to transfer  3,240 GB of data. So to fully be able to utilize all of the allowed transfer usage you will have to upgrade to higher port speed.

Operating System

Usually hosting companies offer several different types of Operating Systems , but most of them are grouped into Linux/Unix based and Windows Servers.
OS X Server is a very rear breed to find on dedicated servers.

Choosing an operating system is mostly dependent on the requirements of software , libraries and applications you will be running on your server.
Certain software is available on both Linux , Unix and Windows , while others are only available for specific OS.

Linux based Operating Systems are very popular choice since most of them are free and usually require less resources to run then windows.

Control Panel

Control panels allow for easy management of dedicated servers. They allow you setup new virtual hosts, domains, emails accounts and various other tasks that can without a control panel be vary tedious and hard to setup.

Some are free and open source but for most of them you have to pay. Usually paid ones come with more features and support.
Most popular paid ones are : Cpanel, Plesk , DirectAdmin.
Most popular free ones are : Virtualmin GPL, Webmin, ISPConfig.

If you are a novice with dedicated servers and your web server is unmanaged by the hosting company then I would strongly suggest having some kind of control panel installed. It will make your server management easy and you will be able to spend the nights actually sleeping instead of trying to figure out why your apache server is returning “500 Internal Server Error” :)

One thing to note is that some Control Panels take over your OS and embed them self so deep with the OS that it can make doing setups and installs not supported by the control panel difficult.

Web Hosting Support and Management
Managed or Unmanaged?

Most of the Dedicated Server packages come as “Managed” or “Unmanaged”.

With unmanaged servers it’s your responsibility to manage the server. Meaning that installing and configuring any software on the server falls on you. Unmanaged servers are usually much cheaper and if you do not have any “System Administration” experience it can be difficult to manage the server.
One option is to get some type of control panel which can make the management of the server much easier.

With managed servers responsibility of managing of the server falls on the hosting company. If you are very new to all this or you do not have time to manage it your self then this is your best bet. Usually managed servers are much more expensive. Managed services come with different levels of management. Make sure that you find out exactly what is included in the management of your server, some tasks or software might not be covered and you might get charged hourly support rates.

Remote Reboot

Is referred to an option that enables you to instantly Hard Reboot your machine. This is usually done via web interface and it is useful since gives you the control to restart the server at your command. Once in a while something will happen with the OS or software on the server so that it crashes or freezes.
This requires the hard restart of the machine (cutting the power off to the machine, and starting again).

If remote reboot is not available , you can usually issue an email ticket or call the hosting company them self and they will perform this for you. Problem is that sometimes support team might not get to your ticket in a while, which is why remote reboot comes in handy.

Technical Support

Things do go wrong and they usually happen when you least expect. Servers crash, Hard drives fail, Processors can burn out and what do you do then? You are possibly thousands of miles away from the server and there is nothing you can personally do. You are in the hands of technical support.

There is all types of hosting companies out there, from those run by one person to those run by hundreds of skilled technicians. Some offer 24/7 manned phone, chat and email support, while some have only limited email support. Be careful when choosing your hosting company, pay good attention to the level of support they provide and see what is covered. For support that is not covered in your plan some hosting companies charge as high as 0 per hour. Make sure you read their SLA (Service Level Agreement) to see if they offer any guarantees for any down time as well

Conclusion

I hope that this article was able to give you some insight in the world of dedicated hosting and help you in your choosing of dedicated server.

How to Choose Best Web Hosting Service

09.07.2012 (9:10 am) – Filed under: Uncategorized ::

One of the crucial decisions that most online businesses have to make is choosing the best web hosting service provider.

Choosing the right kind of web hosting service can be a very daunting task at times as there are some very important features that you need to make sure of. Here you can find below what exactly to look for when choosing the best web hosting service.

Amount of web space: A web hosting service provider would usually assign you a certain amount of space on their server. You need to ensure that does it have the right amount of space for your website and your business requirements. You might want to expand your online business tomorrow and would require much more space. So it’s imperative for you that the web hosting company should be able to provide you with ample of space especially if your website is rich in graphics or has video clips.

FTP access: FTP access is very crucial since it provides the ability to upload new pages. Some web hosting service providers allow you to just design your web pages with their own personal web builder. This may be useful for beginners however you need to ensure if they provide you the facility to expand later when you enhance your online business capabilities.

Degree of reliability, security and speed of access: Speed, security and reliability are extremely important for the success of any online business. While choosing a reliable web hosting service you need to ensure that this is taken care of. A site that is not available, not updated on time or is down, will lose many online visitors. If an online visitor finds your site listed on a search engine, and he tries to access it but finds it down, he is sure to move on to the next link and you lose an important customer or visitor. Even slow working websites are very frustrating. So how do you know if a hosting company is reliable or not? By word of mouth or feedback from others! If that’s not possible then you can yourself try accessing your site during peak hours and non-peak hours too. Your site has to be secure of intruders at the same time, especially if it’s an ecommerce website.

Dependence and support: Does the web hosting service provide 24×7 supports? Do they respond rapidly to your issue? Can you depend on them? If you need 24-hour technical support that larger companies need then expect to pay substantially more. In fact, people are much more expensive than machines.

Pricing plans: Price is also one factor that you should look out for when choosing the best web hosting service. It’s not necessarily true that the most expensive hosts are the best. Simply compare prices and services before you finalize one.

Data transfer (Bandwidth): You also need to see if the hosting company provides you with sufficient bandwidth for efficient data transfer. After all it’s your website and you need to ensure that you are getting the best services for the money you invest.

Choose a Virtual Dedicated Server Hosting Company that Supports Uploading Your Own Virtual Machine

21.12.2011 (4:30 pm) – Filed under: Uncategorized ::

Virtual dedicated server companies that allow customers to upload virtual machines offer tremendous benefits over those who require their users to use the hosting company’s templates or server images. Uploading a virtual machine allows you to convert a physical server to a virtual one, use an existing virtual server image, upload server files to a virtual hosting company, or have a hosting company put the virtual server in their environment for you.

Uploading a virtual machine is a great option if you already have a perfect server or don’t have access to your server’s original installation media. VM upload also lets you implement a development environment for your physical or alternate virtual infrastructure, or use a hosted solution for disaster recovery or business continuity.

Prevent Downtime in Your Production Environment

By uploading a virtual server, all you need to safely update your operating system is to take a snapshot of your hosted virtual environment, load it on a local workstation or a development VM, install all the desired updates, and test it thoroughly before adding the updated server.

Save Time and Customize Your Server

Before virtualization, loading similar applications or operating systems on identical hardware required tedious installation and removal of each variation on the same physical box. Uploading a disk image to a virtual machine gives you the ability to create parallel test environments, saving you time.

Building a custom server or operating system from scratch is also time-consuming, even with excellent configuration management tools, but with a VM upload, you can create and duplicate a disk image that can then be uploaded easily—and quickly. VM upload also lets you build identical, reproducible machines, so that your web site runs smoothly and predictably, with no loss of data, and no downtime. Additionally, you can take an old or misbehaving web server off-line and replace it instantly.

If your development team needs access to your legacy system, VM upload allows you to keep your necessary system as an image locally and put it into an active testing environment only when you need it.

Save Money with a Flexible, Efficient Testing and Production Environment

As businesses grow, so does the need for more virtual servers. Virtualization gives you the flexibility to have as many servers as you need, immediately, and VM upload gives you the ability to take advantage of that flexibility. You’ll save money by avoiding the costly turnaround time for bringing physical servers online.

Customization without the High Cost from Infinitely Virtual

Infinitely Virtual’s VM upload supports image import from all major virtualization vendors and offers virtual dedicated servers with the revolutionary Enterprise Virtualization Environment (E.V.E.), including features like NetApp SAN with RAID-DP, VMware HA clustering, clustered enterprise firewalls, guarantees 100% uptime, and nightly server backup. To learn more about uploading your own VM to an Infinitely Virtual virtual server, call Infinitely Virtual at (866) 257-8455 or request more information at www.InfinitelyVirtual.com.

Choose the right Web Hosting Services for Better Result

10.10.2011 (5:34 pm) – Filed under: Uncategorized ::

A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals to make their own website accessible via World Wide Web. Web hosts are the companies that provide space on a server they own or lease for use by their clients as well as providing Internet connectivity. There are different type’s web hosting services available on internet, but the question arises’How to Choose Web Hosting servicewhich are best suitedfor your needs? First identify your needs of hosting.

 

Different types of Web Hosting Servicesare available like free web hosting servicewhich offers limited services and in turn post advertisements to make money. Shared web hosting services are those in which one website is placed on the same server as many other sites. Typically, all domains may share a common pool of server resources, such as RAM and the CPU. The features available with this type of service can be quite extensive.

]]>

 

There are thousands of local dial-up access web hosting providers in the country, each of which also provides Web page hosting for businesses. ISPs either specialize in dial-up access or Web page hosting. Many dial-up access ISPs don’t understand the needs of small businesses, and aren’t quick to improve service. A few large companies have separate divisions for Web site hosting which help them avoid some of these problems.

 

Another service which is becoming more common these days is Developer’s hosting. Web site developers commonly host the Web pages for the businesses which are their clients. They often provide good service, since they are customer focused. The downsides may be: price, smaller connection to the Internet backbone and dependence.

 

These days you will also find companies which specialize in business Web site hosting. They allow no dial-up access & also don’t allow bandwidth to be compromised by customers who frequently visit chat rooms. They provide a wide variety of services to their customers.

 

A customer needs to evaluate the requirements of the application to choose what kind of hosting to use. Such considerations include database server software, scripting software, and operating system. Most hosting providers provide Linux-based web hosting which offers a wide range of different software. A typical configuration for a Linux server is the LAMP platform: Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP/Perl/Python.

 

Web hosting is often provided as part of a general Internet access plan. There are many free and paid providers offering these types of web hosting, various cheap web hosting are also available due to high competition. Companies offering dedicated servers provide services on higher rates but provide you good bandwidth. While cheap web hosting services are good for smaller scale use like for different types of blogging, for webmasters test their ability to build simple websites and develop, post, and organize content etc. It’s not necessarily true that the most expensive hosts are the best. Simply compare prices and services before you finalize one.

How to Choose Professional Web Hosting Company

08.10.2011 (5:32 pm) – Filed under: Uncategorized ::

Though you can find and select different web site hosting companies online, you may do not know how to choose a suitable web hosting provider. Choosing a suitable web hosting provider is important to your business and you should pay attention to it. Although it is difficult to choose a good and professional hosting provider, there are some tips you can follow.

First, you need to find the company’s performance. Understand the importance of your website, if you have created for fun and only for the sake of your family and friends then it is advisable that you use the free web hosting services. If you are running any kind of business then you should opt for the paid services where you will be entitled to more features and utilities.

Second, you should know clearly which kind of web hosting you prefer. Is your web site or blog for a small business or small company or an individual or is the web site simply for a personal or family venture? A free service can work if you just want something basic to share news with friends and family but they are designed to have limitations. For example, if you want to do business and earn money by selling products and services you typically have to pay for an upgrade or change to another paid for web hosting service. So if you want to create a business site it is best to start with an inexpensive professional web hosting service that will cost you typically less than ten dollars a month depending on who you choose.

Third, you should ask their price. SFTP encryption is perhaps more important for blogs than SSL encryption, as SSL is primarily utilized by e-commerce sites that need to protect sensitive data, such as credit card and bank account information, addresses, email addresses and phone numbers. Since most blogs doesn’t deal with this sort of information, many bloggers prioritize SFTP encryption, which prevents hackers from intercepting, viewing and manipulating files as they’re transferred? This is an updated, more secure version of FTP, or File Transfer Protocol.

If you follow the above advice I think you can find your ideal hosting company.

Why Choose A Cloud Hosting Environment Over Managed Server Hosting?

31.08.2011 (5:32 pm) – Filed under: Uncategorized ::

Keep this in mind when considering this question. In reality “managed server” and “cloud” are not mutually exclusive. There are providers who offer fully managed clouds that use very similar hardware as fully managed servers, with the main difference being the addition of virtualization software to improve the utilization and flexibility of a managed server without virtualization software.

Cloud can be just as secure as any managed server – it’s just a matter of the networking environment and degree of sharing allowed or prohibited.

Any company needing flexible resources, or using multiple managed servers to support their cloud infrastructure, stands a good chance of getting better utilization from their servers if they set up a cloud paradigm. This is especially true for any company interested in off-site backup or a warm or hot disaster recovery site since the savings are now multiplied across 2 server stacks.

As an example, a friends company moved their entire infrastructure to a virtualized server environment (the cloud) and reduced the number of physical servers from 28 to 2 – HUGE savings in physical resources and maintenance. Plus, they were able to set up a remote redundant cloud on servers without worrying about having identical hardware because the virtual server configuration is hardware-agnostic. Their recovery time in a live failover test was a matter of hours, instead of a matter of days.

And because any virtual server system (cloud) with more than one physical server can automatically fail over to another machine in the event of hardware failure, they actually find that it’s MORE stable in the cloud than with their previous server system. Their IT support staff can actually perform software and hardware upgrades during the day, without causing any downtime to the company, because all of their systems can seamlessly move over to one part of the cloud while the other is undergoing maintenance.

The one place that cloud servers struggle with performance wise can be with robust databases – sometimes it’s best to leave the database server on it’s own dedicated machine if query-intensive applications are running against it.

Overall, they have found the cloud to greatly IMPROVE their resiliency and stability, and because they still have it on dedicated hardware, it’s completely secure. They couldn’t get their IT folks to go back to a non-virtual managed server technology – or any of their C-level execs either, for that matter.

The converse argument is this …..

Cloud is vaporware – marketing, pure and simple. Nothing more.

The security issues associated with ‘cloud’ are identical to those associated with conventional hosting, not to mention a suite of new security and legal issues associated with deployment in the cloud. For example, if multiple copies exist, which is the legal original? If data is compromised in the cloud, and legal action is brought, which jurisdiction applies – where you live, where the server resides, where the corporate office resides, or where the contract specifies?

Cloud is a way for large suppliers – Microsoft, for example – to centralize control and impose standard, while consumers – you – save money by not haing to upgrade technology and infrastructure constantly. However, what assurance do you have that your data is not living on some out of warranty DL380 server with one bad drive in the RAID?

Yes, technology costs money, and qualified engineers – like me – also cost money, However control over the access to your critical data is more important than getting into the ‘next big thing’ and ‘being in the cloud. If you cannot afford to deploy multiple points of presence, then you probably should not be doing anything more than running a server that can manage your traffic and performing routine backups (and maybe even verifying them).

Cloud is – as it’s name implies – a mass of vapor that obscures an otherwise clear atmosphere.
