Benefits of Using a Virtual Private Server

What is a Virtual Private Server ?

VPS hosting is a web hosting solution where in virtualized servers are deployed to give user a grass root-level access over their servers, while sharing bandwidth, CPU, and RAM with other users. Virtual private servers provide the performance of a dedicated server running on a machine located in a shared environment. Through root access, customers get the full control of the server just like a dedicated server.

1)  Shorter deployment time for new servers:

 – No procurement of hardware

– Resources virtual server pool are allocated

– Multiple servers created from same image

– Reduced staffing time required to deploy a new service

– Server deployment time shortened to less than a day


2) Scalability and Flexibility:

– Virtual resources can be quickly added to increase the capacity

– You buy only what you need

– Adding vCPUs and RAM is as simple as a reboot

– Additional disk space can frequently be added on the fly

– Move data from a slow storage tier to a faster one without disruption to services

– Reduced need to over-build a server “just to be safe”, saving money and power.


3) Simplifies Development and Testing Environments:

– Virtualization reduces the costs of running separate development, staging and production environments

– Development servers may be created from production images with no downtime

– Quickly modify, test and deploy images into production, speeding up the development cycle

– Decommission development and staging environments when no longer needed, further reducing costs.


3) It’s Green – Save on Power, Space, and Cooling:

– Virtual server units dramatically reduce the physical space, power, and cooling compared to their physical counterparts

– Reduced consumption of power and cooling and saves money too.


4) No physical server upgrades and maintenance:

– No scheduled downtime to perform hardware upgrades, replace failing components or replace aging hardware

– Seamlessly migrate to a different server , perform preventative maintenance and even completely refresh the hardware.


5) Hardware Fault Tolerance:

– Virtual infrastructure is built with fault tolerant components (redundant power supplies, storage and network connections), in the event a host should fail, virtual servers are automatically migrated and restarted using spare capacity in the data center.


6) Simplified Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity:

– Virtualization software can replicate virtual machines to a remote data center

– Disaster recovery and business continuity plans are relatively standard and do not require custom engineering for each physical system and application.


7) Leverage other benefits of the data center:

– 24×7 staffing, precision power and cooling, enhanced security and encrypted tape backups.
