Getting Know More About Virtual Server and Virtual Data Center

Not sure if your business needs to use a virtual private server (VPS) or a virtual data center (VDC)?

While the two are related, they are not the same thing. Both a VPS and VDC are invaluable tools for businesses of all sizes, from small organisations looking for an affordable and secure server to suit their unique needs, to growing and enterprise-level organisations that require maximum scalability and flexibility.

Both make the computing power of an outside server accessible, empowering business IT teams to do more regarding security, functionality and development.

Today, it’s no longer necessary to spend large sums on a physical data center. Virtual private servers and virtual data center are two of the most efficient resources businesses have available to them to harness the power of virtual computing power and data storage.

Where the distinction between VPS and VDC lies is in the scope of what they offer.

What is a Virtual Private Server used for?

A VPS can be used for a variety of purposes. It serves as an off-site, third-party hosting provider with greater security and flexibility than you’d get with something like shared hosting. When you sign up for a virtual private server, you’re basically getting a remote computer and all the dynamic functioning that comes with it.

It can be used for:

  • Running websites
  • Hosting business files and media
  • Testing new components as well as server setups that aren’t yet live

The advantages of a VPS are that it offers a lot of the resources modern organisations require to offer a professional user experience. For example, with CPU and RAM, a website run from a VPS will be more responsive than one run from a shared hosting service.

It is also a secure option. VPS has what is known as sandbox security. This means no one can go in and hack your user information and data files as the server is its own separate entity within the cloud environment. Understanding how critical data security is to today’s organisations, Zettagrid utilises three levels of electronic security, physical security, network separation, and server and storage data.

We also make our VPS services fully customisable to make your life that much easier. You can choose your operating system, set your own levels of CPU, RAM, storage, Internet data, speed, and set up your location. Then, you can install whatever applications your business needs rather than being stuck with pre-determined applications.

A VPS will have a limited number of users, which means it is limited in scalability and may not offer enough for more dynamic organisations – or for those on a fast growth track.

This is where virtual data centres come in to save the day.

What Is a Virtual Data Center Used For?

Just as a physical data building would house numerous racks containing servers, a virtual data center is a virtual location that houses numerous virtual servers. It offers a pool of virtualised resources, which are then available to only a single user – your business. This means instead of one virtual operating system, you have an entire virtual environment that contains many virtual servers.

A VDC is designed to meet the needs of enterprise-level organisations. It is essentially a management environment. Leverage it for all it’s worth, and your IT team can do just about anything within a secure, scalable, stunningly flexible environment.

We take customisation a few steps further than what most people expect from a VDC. For instance, you can customise your virtual servers, so they match exactly what you need. This allows businesses to save on IT costs by only paying for what you use – yet you are already set up to scale when your organisation demands growth and greater functionality.

A VDC also serves as a source of backup and replication. With Zettagrid, you can choose from different VM backup and replication options depending on what you need to meet compliance and retention requirements.

We also make managing your VDC a breeze with plenty of real-time and historical metrics and optional advanced portal features with VMware and vCloud Director. The idea is for you to be in complete control, so you can get the most out of your virtual servers and offer the seamless, flawlessly secure private, public, or hybrid cloud environment for all your users.
