Dedicated servers have long been the workhorse of the Internet. These devices are literally individual, physical computers that are used by only one client at a time.Learn More
Private cloud combines the reliability and privacy of a dedicated server with the elasticity and redundancy of the cloud.Learn More
Virtual server instances can be deployed in minutes, destroyed in seconds, and scaled to be as small or large as needed.Learn More
The ability to not only scale workloads into the public cloud, but also to rapidly create virtual machines delivers much needed agility to accommodate sudden spikes. By using a public cloud, companies can quickly pause or stop added resources. In this manner, the addition of public cloud to your workload creates a rapid means of meeting workloads, while keeping costs low.
Bare metal servers and private clouds offer a fast track towards PCI and HIPAA compliance. Scalability is limited to your total infrastructure if you run private cloud, and is near nonexistent for bare metal. However, by adding a public cloud to your compliant infrastructure, you build a platform that can conform to compliance regulations.
Data, both big and small, benefits from raw processing power. The more you can maximize these resources, the better. Thus, cloud is not always the best fit. Some databases cannot scale horizontally. Other databases can bog down with the system resource requirements of using a hypervisor layer.
