What is a Virtual Server?
So what actually is a virtual server, or VPS?
To put it in the most simple terms, a VPS is a server with all the abilities and capabilities of a physical server, but without needing the actual physical hardware/machinery.
If a server is a piece of hardware or software that provides functionality to clients, a virtual server is one that has been converted into what is known as a virtual machine or VM. So rather than an actual physical piece of hardware that you are using, the server often exists in a cloud environment, keeping all the power and functionality of physical servers but cutting out the actual costs and administration of physical hardware.
Of course, eventually, it does all come back to a physical server. But one physical server can host many multiple virtual servers.
This allows for multiple users across different locations to share its processing power, creating a more resilient, flexible and powerful network.
At Sedcom, we can set you up on a virtual server that is managed and run on using our own hardware. So we have the physical servers here, you enjoy the virtual servers where you are.
Benefits of Using a VPS
There are a number of benefits that come with using a VPS. Especially when you’re a business. Let’s reel off the main reasons and then look a bit closer at them.
The main benefits of using a virtual server are:
- Reliability of function
- Increased performance
- More control
- Scalable solution
Virtual Server Costs
Because virtual servers are essentially sharing resources, you can strip out the costs of managing and maintaining hardware (because we’re in charge of that) and simply pay for the virtual server you need. It’s not just upkeep costs, but the time it takes out of your day, which in turn is a cost in itself.
If your virtual server is configured correctly and is suitable for your operation, they are extremely reliable. Even if one physical server is hosting many virtual servers, each one is distinct from the other. So if one was to have complications for whatever reason, it wouldn’t affect the others.
The nature of virtual servers means that there is more scope for what you can do and achieve. Virtual servers are a flexible, agile option.
With a virtual server, they can be configured to match your needs exactly. We can manage the server for you, or you can be in control of your virtual server.
Virtual servers are much easier to scale up or down. You don’t have to create extra physical space for hardware servers, and you don’t have the associated costs of increasing your servers. This can be done remotely, at ease.
It’s not that virtual servers are more secure, but they still offer you comprehensive and robust security. Especially our servers here at Sedcom. We are cyber security experts and we will keep a watchful eye over your server and help to protect it.
