Linux Dedicated Servers

21.03.2016 (6:10 am) – Filed under: Uncategorized ::

The Linux dedicated server is just one of the main platforms that you can use as your web hosting option and there are several reasons why people actually choose and prefer this over most other options. One thing to consider is that when looking at the plethora of companies out there, you might be hard pressed to find one that does not have a Linux based server programme on their list of products and services, and there is a reason, or several reasons why this is so successful. This article will discuss a little on the Linux Dedicated Server.

Like most dedicated server solutions, this is one that allows you control over the amount of resources that you can virtually own on your web hosting platform. As mentioned in many other articles, the best kind of server is one that allows you your own personal and private space to track data back and forth. The whole reason why shared servers are not good is that they are prone to slowdowns and can lead to data loss and compromise of information that gets sent through the central server and so on and so forth. When you are considering servers for yourself, consider this as a premier choice.

One other good thing about the Linux servers is that they have a high level of customisability that allows you to tailor your virtual platform to your own needs. The good thing about the programming language of Linux is that it is universal to most needs, and that you are able to customise the solutions down to the code, to what you want the server to give you. This is why Linux servers are gaining more and more popularity with service providers and this is why you need to educate yourself on its benefits on how it can impact your business or online solutions.

The next thing you might want to consider is that most of the dedicated servers that handle this platform will almost surely have a technical engineer attached to it, which would be a great plus for anyone wanting a holistic solution to their web hosting. Most of the online server based companies will proffer a Linux based engineer to help with any of the nitty gritty software installation and interface issues, although the code language of Linux is air tight and can communicate with most common platforms.

With great options in automated software, you get the idea that there are no limits when it comes to the dedicated server, and you might want to heavily consider this as one of the options when you are trying out for your own web hosting shared solution. You can do much more research and gain more valuable feedback on this by visiting any of the tech forums or sites available online, and of course, you need to be able to know exactly what to do and what to look out for when it comes to choosing a Linux based server. In time you can be an expert too in this area.

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.

Know Your Tech-Speak; Linux Dedicated Servers

04.05.2014 (3:24 am) – Filed under: Uncategorized ::

There is something to be said about using either shared web hosting solutions or those that are dedicated to a single platform, either Windows based or Linux based. These two represent the most popular solutions on the internet for consumers and businesses to get online and distinct themselves on the information super highway. The former is more popular because of the fact that it is shared, which means within the pipeline, there are a few users, and in some cases, a few hundred and even a few thousand users sharing the server bandwidth.

This is great when you are a simple consumer using the server for more leisure and casual reasons but when you are using the internet as a platform to extend your business, then you need to get a dedicated server. While more expensive, it is a dedicated server with customisable host names and more bandwidth to support your needs. This article will peek a little at the Linux dedicated server and tell you why they are great solutions for your business and in some cases, even personal needs. The reason why shared web hosting is so much more cost effective is because of the reason above – they use one single server in a location that can host tens of thousands of websites all over the world.

Because of volume, the cost goes down; but there are detriments to this, which include things like a shared bandwidth, meaning you will experience slowdowns and technical problems that are universal. With a dedicated Linux server, you will be guaranteed a larger bandwidth and your own personal space online. This is because your website is being handled by one single dedicated server, and because of the resource focus to keeping your website running, there is a higher level of reliability when compared to using shared hosting.

The equipment behind these servers are usually the best in the business, with high end servers being a feature common to Linux dedicated servers, so it is always a good idea to in that direction. You do not want to be caught in a position where you a riding on the back of a technologically inferior server that cannot deliver the power and speed that your website and business demands. With Linux servers, you know you are getting pre-configures and cutting edge equipment. The network connections are usually way above the consumer T3 connections; with gigabyte level bandwidths not uncommon with some Linux servers.

They will also provide you with custom software and a team to support the server, in case of any difficulties and issues with your web site. If you are looking for performance and piece of mind, the general advice is to go for a Windows based or Linux dedicated server. With so many issues already reported with shared servers, you know that this is the direction you need to provide your website with the resources that it needs. So know your tech speak and be aware of emerging technologies in web hosting, and make the right choice.

Are Managed Dedicated Server Services Right for You?

20.03.2014 (11:58 pm) – Filed under: Uncategorized ::

If you’re considering switching to a dedicated server or you’re having difficulties managing your dedicated server, consider opting for managed dedicated server services. Managed services are ideal for businesses that are in need of a dedicated server, but don’t have the time, resources or skills to devote to managing it themselves.

Managed dedicated servers offer many benefits. You have all of the advantages of a dedicated server such as adequate bandwidth, reliability, stability and security. Yet with managed services, there’s no need for any technical knowledge at all to maintain your website. With managed web hosting, the provider takes care of technical issues involving your dedicated server website, including installation and maintenance of equipment and software.

Although you can sign up for managed dedicated server services that leave you in charge and in control of administrative tasks involved with your website, it’s not necessary. Managed services can include handling administrative functions, as well. Usually each managed service client is assigned a single representative who is responsible for serving their needs, providing the added benefit of personalized customer support and service.

By contrast, with unmanaged dedicated server services, the customer is responsible for installing and managing the server. This usually involves a substantial amount of time, and technical expertise is required. 

Many businesses start out with managed dedicated server services when they’re ready to upgrade to a dedicated server. It’s possible to acquire the technical know-how to manage a dedicated server independently over time, and managed services can be downgraded to unmanaged services. However, managed services offer so many benefits, many businesses opt to stick with managed services long term. They feel the cost saving isn’t worth the time, effort and expense it takes to manage their server independently.

There is one potential benefit to unmanaged dedicated web hosting besides cost savings. For some, the flexibility and freedom offered by unmanaged hosting is an advantage.

If you have the technical skills and time to carry out ongoing server maintenance including security and software upgrades, altering configurations and adding patches, unmanaged dedicated web hosting may be right for you. However, don’t overlook all costs associated with unmanaged services. You’ll be responsible for software licenses as well as the storage and physical maintenance of the server. Equipment and utility costs are two other sources of expense to consider. While it may seem that managed dedicated server services are more costly, oftentimes this isn’t the case.

Advantages of Virtual Dedicated Servers

28.09.2012 (12:14 pm) – Filed under: Uncategorized ::

When your website grows out of the facilities provided by shared hosting services, the next natural progression is towards using Virtual Private Servers (VPS), aka virtual dedicated servers. Virtual dedicated servers use a special kind of partitioning technology that successfully creates several ‘virtual’ servers out of a single physical server. Every web site that is hooked on to a virtual dedicated server has a completely separate server space. The server behaves as if it was dedicated only to that website. Through this technology, hosting companies are able to create multiple servers using a single physical server. This reduces costs while providing maximum benefit to clients.

Virtual dedicated servers offer a number of advantages to the websites they service. Through this service, a website has full root access to the server. That means, you can do any one of the number of activities to customize your server. You may install software, add and update packages, host multiple sites and change server configuration. At the same time, security is never compromised because other clients do not have access to your section of the server.

Virtual dedicated servers are very attractive to website owners because they are a happy via media between shared hosting and dedicated hosting. Many websites, particularly fledgling e-commerce sites, may have outgrown shared hosting but may find dedicated hosting too expensive for their needs. In this case, virtual dedicated servers provide all the facilities at a fraction of the cost.

Virtual dedicated hosting is targeted at businesses and enterprises that are on their way up. They are meant to be used as an intermediary step towards a highly successful online business. Therefore, virtual dedicated servers always offer an easy option to upgrade services. Generally, you would require less than a minute to upgrade your hosting account so that your website would have more disk space, memory or other facilities. Virtual dedicated servers come with an easy-to-use control panel that offers a highly powerful tool box that allows you easy access to powerful features.

Virtual dedicated servers are not without a few disadvantages. Of course, these disadvantages are comparative. When compared with a dedicated server, virtual dedicated servers offer less security. However, the amount of protection that virtual dedicated servers provide is much more than that provided by shared hosting services. Only if your website requires 100% protection, should you consider replacing virtual dedicated servers with a physical dedicated server. Another disadvantage is the fact that it is possible for you to alter your website accidentally or even crashed the server unwittingly. Even so, most dedicated servers provide excellent backup facilities.
