One of the current concerns of every entrepreneur is data storage. All companies need to back up if they have a website, a digital store or if they manage database systems. Fortunately, nowadays storing information is much easier, cheaper and more practical thanks to virtual servers. Beyond this, every entrepreneur should know a little about data center products.
Data center products are all those equipments that involve different modalities for data storage. In fact, there are several ways of storage and an endless number of brands and equipment to do it. Knowing a little about this will be vital to make good decisions when covering this business need.
Physical or virtual server: Buy or rent?
It is almost always discussed whether it is better to have a physical server and a virtual one. The question in these terms can be a headache for many entrepreneurs, especially if you do not know anything about technology. To tell the truth, the debate is much simpler than it seems. The difference between physical and virtual servers is between owning or renting them.
In other words, a physical server implies the purchase of storage equipment by the entrepreneur who is going to use it. On the other hand, virtual servers are those that work from Internet connections. Therefore, these are only data center products that are rented, basically a service for which you pay.
So, when we consider the issue of “physical vs. virtual server”, what we are really studying is whether it is more convenient to buy the servers or sell them. In other words, it is a question of understanding whether it is better to build a data center in the office, or to hire data center services in Spain, or in any other country. Of course, even if you put it this way, it is not an easy issue to address without prior knowledge.
Why does almost any entrepreneur need servers?
Servers are basically computers that are used to store the digital information we have. For example, having a business website involves supporting the structure and content, including photos, comments, traffic, etc. Precisely, everything that is a website is about digital information that must be stored somewhere and that is the server.
The same goes for those companies that work with databases or systems of any kind. Everything that is stored in these systems must be stored in a digital space. Similarly, a call center with IP PBX or any communication system, stores calls and other digital information. For all this, you must have servers.
Most businesses today need hosting to function. And, to tell the truth, the best performing businesses and enterprises collect data. In the beginning, you may not notice the need for back up, hosting or communication systems. But with the passage of time and the arrival of customers, it is inevitable to think about these things.
The difficulty of having a physical server
It seems almost logical to say that having a physical server is the best solution for any company. The reality is that, in principle, having this type of storage is very expensive. Starting with the fact that the investment is not limited to the already substantial purchase of equipment. In fact, building a data center involves installations, remodeling, cooling equipment, etc.
If you are wondering what a data center is and what it is for, it is the technological and physical environment that physical servers must have in order to function. As explained above, it is costly, requires investment, overhaul, maintenance, juncture management and the like. The latter involves the hiring of computer experts, which implies the payment of salaries.
The acquisition and operation of physical servers is synonymous with spending a lot of money to obtain a system whose operation depends on the company. To tell the truth, not all entrepreneurs can afford this type of expense. That is why the virtual server has become a solution for most developing businesses.
Virtual Data Center products: an alternative
Since its inception, virtual storage was a solution to the complicated and expensive of having physical servers. From the VPS, websites and businesses were able to multiply from moderate or low investments. Some of the advantages of the virtual server are the following:
It is cheap: Anyone can get digital hosting at very low cost. In fact, there is a great diversity of plans and proposals when renting this type of services. In general, the companies that offer it have different prices adapted to the availability of each entrepreneur.
It is efficient and functional: It has always been said that cheap is expensive. However, the virtual server, even if it is cheaper than the physical one, is just as functional. Of course, the better the performance, the higher the cost of its hiring. But quality is also guaranteed with this technology.
No maintenance required: The best thing about hiring virtual data center products is that the maintenance and security tasks are carried out by the company providing the service. Thus, the contracting entrepreneur can forget about this responsibility and simply report any inconvenience.
It has exclusive services: Those companies that want a quality and exclusive virtual storage service can have it. In fact, there is a dedicated server for those large companies that wish to have a dedicated equipment just for them. Of course, this is more expensive, but it delivers great quality and security.
Data Center products can deliver as much quality, security and stability as a private server. Of course, everything will depend on the company with which the service is purchased and also, the contracted plan.
Large companies can count on the dedicated server
It is a myth that virtual servers do not meet the high requirements of medium or large companies. In fact, with this type of contracting in mind, the dedicated server service was devised. This type of virtual storage consists of providing the contracting client with his own computer.
Of course, this is much more secure and efficient than hard disk partitioning, a technique widely used for storage. The idea is to make available a good amount of resources from the Madrid data center and direct them to a single company. In these cases, efforts are usually redoubled and security is handled very carefully, because this type of client usually handles a lot of customer data, which is sensitive.
At Neotel we have several plans, services and Data Center products. The objective is to be able to guarantee storage to any type of company, small, medium or large. Of course, this is not the only advantage of hiring our services.
