Benefits of using VPS for the Office

Windows VPS works as an “office in the cloud,” with its own operating system, disc space, and bandwidth. It is a middle point between shared hosting and dedicated hosting, useful for sites that are not quite ready for dedicated hosting, but have out-grown shared hosting.  It grants users far more control over their environment than is available with shared hosting. This flexibility allows users to decide which resources are currently necessary and add more as their company or needs grow.

ERP or CRM systems can also be installed on VPS. Having these systems available from more than just at the office helps out employees who work from home or travel often, granting them access to all the services that might make their load smoother. Applications that have to run 24/7 can be moved to VPS to ensure the program runs continually, smoothly, and keeps your company doing the same.

Moving your website to VPS can offer huge performance benefits, particularly for websites hosted on a shared platform or those coded in ASP or .NET. Additionally installing your mail client on VPS is an extra layer of protection and assurance that your resources are only available to your website and email and not shared with anyone else on the shared hosting package.

Using VPS saves money, as it allows companies to downgrade their computers and run more complex systems from VPS, instead of investing in top-grade computers for every employee in order to run those systems. VPS is also less expensive than a physical server running a full dedicated plan.

VPS provides reliability and stability. With shared hosting, you run the risk of another website on the same server overloading and affecting your site’s performance. VPS saves your worrying about that, particularly in more professional environments.

No matter the speed of the remote desktop and server, VPS keeps your internet running at top speeds.

Cloud Hosting realities

What is a cloud hosting and do your sites need to be in the “cloud”?

To answer this question lets dig a little into history. Virtualization technology is actually not new. You can even say it’s as ancient as computers and servers themselves. Couple decades ago IBM has already been working with virtual servers and called them “Containers”. In the mid-2000s the mainstream CPUs became powerful enough so that every home computer could run virtual machines.
