Virtual Servers Guarantee Your Data Security

Published: 9 December 2016 y., Friday

According to the International Data Corporation (IDC) market research and analysis company, in 2020 the amount of digital data will reach 40 trillion gigabytes. Due to the increasing amount of data companies face an enormous problem: where and how to store it.

IT professionals advise security-conscious businesses to rent virtual servers. This allows you to use the most secure computer resources for a fixed monthly fee.

Conveniently

Why give up available servers? According to Penkių kontinentų komunikacijų centras sales manager Romas Rimgaila, this equipment requires constant maintenance, in other words - time and money. "Server service requires investments not only in the team of qualified specialists, but also to repairing faulty equipment and replacing obsolete servers for the new ones. Also, due to business growth and increasing volumes of data, server-based networks must be expanded – and this requires additional investments", the company representative explained.

Having ordered a virtual server, you no longer have to worry about the purchase, renovation or upgrading your hardware - as well as keeping the whole staff or increasing their skills. The company that offer server rental now cares about it. The customer only shouldn‘t forget to pay a monthly fee – the amount of which depends on the consumption of resources.

Economically

Renting a virtual server not only reduces your company‘s expenses on keeping a team of IT professionals and upgrading your hardware. The electricity bills also become less.

When working, servers consume a great lot of electricity – and produce heat; so they need to be cooled, which also requires electric equipment. As a rusult electricity consumption doubles. Those who abandon their own servers no longer need to invest in air conditioners, and the electricity bill is already included in the service fee.

Securely

If the server is in your office, there is a risk of data loss. According to Mr Rimgaila, to support optimal non-stop operation mode, both the server and the software must be in a crystal clear environment – and only specialized data centers can meet those conditions. "These centers are established in areas that meet all security requirements – and those areas are constantly monitored. Proper humidity and temperature are maintained in the place where servers are put; they are sealed and protected. Also those centers have a redundant power supply with separate power inputs and diesel generators. They also have automatic fire extinguishing systems", Mr Rimgaila just names the advantages of a data center.

For even greater security of customer data backup copies are used. This means that all data is automatically copied to the backup storage, which allows to recover it if the hardware has failed – or it is (un)intentionally removed. Backup also requires a special software that reduces possible errors to minimum.

Flexibly

Having ordered a virtual server, you easily solve the problem of lack of resources. First of all, the solutions for the data storage are selected and designed according to the particular business‘ needs. For example, it is possible to rent a virtual server for a month or two.

The ability to rapidly expand the leased and previously used server resources is also convenient for the customer - for example, if your business grows or, duirng a certain season.

According to the global Ponemon Institute research, the total cost of data loss went up from an average of $3.8 million to $4 million in 2016. Thus, having considered the importance of the information available and the server capacities, businesses should decide thether to risk – or take care of the necessary data protection mechanisms.
