New Management Platform For The SSD Cloud Servers

ssd cloud servers

It has been more than 3 years since we started offering SSD cloud servers. During that time Scala Hosting has provisioned hundreds of cloud servers in both our datacenters in USA and Europe. We have allocated multiple TB’s of memory and SSD SAN disk space to all of the servers. At the beginning we have started with 1Gbps storage network which we upgraded about a year and a half ago to 10Gbps. That increased the speed of our cloud servers drastically. The cloud hosting services are getting more and more popular. The cloud hosting industry is growing all the time and people are migrating from their traditional dedicated servers to cloud servers to get all the benefits of cloud hosting. They save money, have better reliability and are easy to manage and deploy. Cloud hosting is the future of hosting and in the next couple of years almost everyone who has a web site will be hosting it on a cloud server. To be able to meet the requirements of our customers and our own requirements to provide best cloud hosting services we have to make changes in our infrastructure and management. The software we were using for managing the cloud farm has reached a level not to be able to perform what we need it to do. That’s why we decided to invest thousands of man hours and development ┬áin order to configure, implement and deploy a new management platform for our SSD cloud servers.

ScalaHosting Cloud Servers Empowered

cloud servers

Cloud servers are the most popular type of servers used nowadays. The reasons are really simple. The benefits are too many and there is really no point in using a traditional machine. Cloud hosting gives you alot. You get speed, reliability and redundancy at much lower cost. At the end you have more resources and pay less. ScalaHosting has started moving their servers to the cloud long ago. Many servers use our superior cloud infrastructure and all new customers accounts get activated on servers in the cloud. Our new customers looking for servers and our existing customers who need a server for the extra resources and security choose a cloud server. It allows them to have their web sites loading lightning fast. They can order additional CPU, RAM or disk space whenever they need it and they can remove CPU/RAM when they don’t need it anymore. In that way they always pay what they use and what they need. That flexibility cannot be achieved on a traditional dedicated server. Moreover, a dedicated server is more expensive.

Due to the fact that cloud servers are so popular right now ScalaHosting works on increasing the effectiveness and speed all the time. We have been working for the last couple of months on a new system which will allow our cloud hosting customers to increase the speed of their servers without paying a penny. Our tests showed that the performance will increase by 15-20%. Additionally, we have developed a new cloud servers management plugin allowing customers to have much more control. The new system is faster too. The deployment of a cloud server in the past took about 5-6 minutes. With the new system we can deploy hundreds of cloud servers in 10 seconds.

We will share more information about the new system in the next couple of weeks and all cloud servers customers who get switched to the new system will be able to see it.

What is Cloud Hosting?

Let’s first start by explaining what cloud computing is. It will put the beginning of our article which will answer the question what is cloud hosting. First of all, cloud computing recently became popular. Businesses and individuals use it today due to its advantages over standalone computing and the benefits it brings. Cloud computing is a process of sharing guaranteed systems resources in a farm of multiple servers. The resources are CPU, memory, disk space, network speed and others. That allows the cloud computing owner to utilize the systems resources in a more efficient way. As a result, it costs less. That is one of the biggest benefits of cloud computing. Cloud computing can bring alot of speed an reliability if we compare it to standalone servers. Applications will run quicker and total expenses will be lower.
