Virtual servers are quicker than the average single physical server, can be adapted to meet your changing needs, and are reliable. Operating within a secure and fast network with storage infrastructure, if your business is growing and you need an IT hosting solution to keep pace then virtual servers could be the right option for you.
From just £40 a month, this hosting service delivers above and beyond what you may expect for the price.
Different operating systems are supported by virtual servers,
including Windows and Linux. And because virtual servers are built
around your particular needs, you simply alter memory, CPU and
drive size whenever you need it - meaning you don't have to make an
expensive initial investment in your hosting service either.
Customers can also access their server via a remote administration portal to reboot or power on their machines. This additional opt-in service also lets you get screen access to your server even if you lose IP connectivity.
Virtual servers use a dual 64-bit Quad Core Intel Xeon for maximum efficiency. And as there is no physical server present, power and cooling costs are reduced.
There is less risk of network failure coupled with the peace of mind that if something goes wrong, there is back-up to cope with this and reduce downtime.
