When you purchase a dedicated server from SnelServer.com you will also be able to choose from a wide variety of enterprise-level operating systems that enable you to get the most out of your new server. For businesses that need the flexibility of running multiple operating systems (OS) and applications – be it Windows Server or one of the various distributions of Linux Server – virtualisation software from VMware may be the ideal solution.
It allows firms to run multiple OSs simultaneously – ideal for those that need the flexibility of Linux but want to test websites or software in a Windows environment – and doing all this on the same server can result in significant cost savings, both in terms of hardware and cooling and power costs.
Running a VMware ESXi server means different OSs can be run on the same server, doing away with the need to invest in extra hardware. As SnelServer.com offer a wide range of server hardware to suit all needs and budgets – ranging from dual core to hexa core models that feature as much as 96GB of memory – enterprises can pick and choose the hardware they need to ensure they can operate in different virtual environments without compromising on performance.
If things do go wrong and important documents or data is lost, VMware’s data protection capabilities make it easy to recover, as non-disruptive backups take place periodically. A snapshot is taken of the virtual machine, which is then stored by a dedicated backup application, removing the need to use up system resources within the virtual machine by running a backup agent within it.
Ordering either a VMware ESXi 4.1 or VMware ESXi 5.0 server from SnelServer.com is perfect for firms that lack the technical capability to assemble and maintain a dedicated server, as the server will be up and running within a few minutes of the order being placed. With 99.9 per cent uptime, firms can focus on their day-to-day operations without having to worry about server downtime or scheduled maintenance, as Snel can carry out necessary changes without customers experiencing packet loss.
