Enterprise Hosting solutions encompasses hardware that provide reliability through redundant components. Enterprise level hardware delivers high performance to your application and services. All Dedicated Servers fall under the Enterprise Hosting model. Servers are configured with fault tolerant components to minimize hardware failures.
All hardware on Dedicated Servers includes hot swappable components. RAID configurations are recommended based on the workload of services and applications. Data is transferred using hardware RAID controllers which translate to higher write throughput to the RAIDed disks and better overall performance.
Baseline SATA drives will satisfy low requirement Dedicated Servers such as a simple web server. More complex hosting solutions running relational database management systems (RDBMS) such as SQL Server or MySQL, can justify faster churning SAS 10K , SAS 15K and SSD hard drives. Protect and secure your data from the local hardware with dedicated and shared NAS (Network Attached Storage) and SAN (Storage Area Network) storage hosting solutions.
Servers are equipped with redundant power supplies to minimize service disruptions. At the perimeter level, Custom Solutions are available for external redundant power. Independent A/B power feeds can be piped in from separate power grids to different power supplies on your servers.
Dedicated Servers can be equipped and configured with redundant NICs (Network Interface Cards) for network communication and traffic load balancing. Enterprise solutions also provide redundancy at the Network Infrastructure layer with multihomed bandwidth using the BGP routing protocol.
With the advancement of technology, many organizations tolerate less downtime. Hosting between Data Centers provide advanced solutions to ensure business continuity. Enterprise solutions, such as Disaster Recovery planning bring redundancy to your data hosting solutions with HA (High Availability).
Enterprise level hardware offers the complete hosting solutions for your Dedicated Servers needs.
