7 Business Benefits of Using a Virtual Private Server (VPS)
When you decide to bring a new technology into your business, you’d like to shorten the time it takes between decision and using that technology. A great way to shorten that time is to use hardware and other systems that are already set up and fully managed instead of buying and configuring your own.Faster implementation may be one of the first benefits you notice when you opt for our KeyHost Virtual Private Server (VPS), but it won’t be the last. Consider these other advantages of putting your hardware in the cloud instead of your office.
Highly specialised server expertise
At FinTechnologies, we employ experts who care for our customers Virtual Private Servers (VPS) and their their data and applications – full-time. So in other words, we monitor the infrastructure for you to ensure that nothing fails.
At FinTechnologies data security is high on our agenda and we apply best practices to every facet of security, from multiple physical access controls to sophisticated malware defences using WatchGuard Firewalls with Threat Detection and Response coupled with Webroot Antivirus. As a result, client applications and data enjoy better protection than they would if they resided in client offices.
We design our infrastructure to ensure redundancy at every level. Redundancy means that, even if a component (a firewall, a server or an internet connection) in the our infrastructure fails, our customers will never lose the services they pay for.
Access to business applications and data isn’t lost if a server fails. We take 15 minute backups of all our servers using StorageCraft ShadowProtect and store this data on a separate device and in two separate locations
Rather than work from data based in the cloud, some of our customers choose to use KeyGuard for their on premise servers. Should regular service be lost, our customers can quickly restore infrastructure in the cloud with KeyHost, keep access to critical data and services, and keep their businesses in operation.
Reduced IT expenses
Consider all the up-front and ongoing costs of new systems: servers, software, operating systems, cooling, staff to manage these assets, and so on. A KeyHost plan allows you to share many of these assets and related costs with their other clients, subject to your requirements. You pay an amount that more closely matches the computing capacity, storage and expertise you need.
Fitting recurring fees for cloud services into an operating budget is easier than squeezing a project cost into a capital budget. And unlike project costs that can spiral out of control, monthly fees remain stable and predictable.
