“Guaranteed uptime” is one of the most common buzzwords in the business. Most (if not all) hosting providers offer uptimes of 99.9% and higher. Some cloud hosting companies, like A2 hosting, for example, genuinely deliver on their promises. Yet still, it's important to know how downtimes work.  This convenient chart shows, how often your website can still go down with the provider’s “guaranteed uptime”.
VPS and cloud computing are not mutually exclusive options. You can host your VPS in a virtualized environment. This allows you to convert one physical server into multiple virtual machines, each of which acts like a unique physical device for running both IT resources and web applications in a flexible, instantly scalable and cost-efficient manner.
Definitely. Because of the OpenStack based architecture, your hardware has redundancy built in, making it possible for an entire server failure to have zero data loss and so that the virtual machine can be booted onto new hardware in a matter of minutes. This, combined with backup snapshots and many configuration optimizations means that you won't find a more resilient platform than our Cloud VPS servers.
Interserver VPS can be deployed from the West Cost (Los Angeles, CA) or east Cost (Secaucus, NJ) datacenters. Deploying your services from a location that is closer to you will reduce latency. Low latency service is important in some platforms such as stock trading. Or deploy in both locations to build redundancy into the service you are deploying.
Our Quick Start Cloud means no confusing price guides and instructions to sift through just to get started. Just design your perfect Cloud and easily re-size your account as resource needs fluctuate. Our ultra-reliable service comes backed by our 99.9% Uptime Commitment. Don't settle for merely a top Cloud VPS Hosting provider; choose A2 Hosting for the Best Cloud VPS Hosting service.
Setting up your systems on a new cloud hosting plan isn’t for faint-hearted beginners. Many choose to avoid the virtualization complexities by opting for managed hosting services, which often include assistance for software installations and updates, security tools, and performance optimizations. Hosting specialists perform both the complicated and the mundane tasks required to maintain healthy infrastructure and application stacks.
The biggest difference between the two server environments is scale. If you’re looking to launch as quickly as possible and don’t care about scale, then a VPS server can be a great starting point. However, if you demand a flexible hosting setup and a high level of site performance and storage then it’s worth checking out a cloud hosting environment.
We use Ceph Storage which provides a 3N level of redundancy. In regards to computing, it is completely distributed without any point of failure, scalable to the exabyte level and also freely available. It also replicates data and makes it fault-tolerant, and requires no specific hardware support. Ceph is designed to be both self-healing and self-managing, thus aiming to minimize administration time and other costs.

These requirements can also be automatically tuned to one’s solution requirements. This is known as application-aware service provisioning, which is implemented through software-defined environments (SDE). SDE automatically and dynamically provisions the compute, network, and storage resources to your application needs. It helps with maximizing efficiencies and optimizing services, a win-win for both users and the service provider.
If you read our last post on business continuity planning, you know that a failed server can have catastrophic effects on your business. But let’s assume you already have a sound business continuity plan in place, and you know what you’re going to do if that server fails. What should you consider when it comes to choosing the right server for your business in the first place?

Choosing a Cloud VPS, allows you to rely on VMware technology, the market leading provider of virtualization software, have your data stored in the latest SSD storage and have guaranteed quality connectivity for both Italian and international connections. Last but not least, you know that your virtual servers are in Aruba Cloud's data centres, which comply with the highest standards in terms of reliability.

Data centers use from 1 to 2 percent of world’s electricity. And only around a quarter of our current energy is renewable - there are still plenty types of conventional power used in order to get electricity. Examples of such ways are coal, oil, gas or nuclear energy. In turn, this means that the more servers there are, the more electricity they use. Because most our energy comes from conventional sources, servers increase our carbon footprint. In fact, a CLEER model simulation (a tool by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Northwestern University) published in Scientific American reveals an interesting fact. If all US companies would move their spreadsheet, email apps, customer management software and similar programs to the cloud, that would save enough a lot of energy. How much exactly? Enough to fully power the city of Los Angeles!
A top consideration in choosing a VPS plan is whether you want the service to be managed or unmanaged. Unmanaged plans are less expensive, but they put the burden of server management on your shoulders. With a managed plan, experts take care of many security and performance concerns. In addition, when you choose the memory, CPU power, and hard drive capacity of your virtual machine, also inquire about the quality and specifics of the physical host it will run on to be sure that the physical host has the power to meet the demands of your virtual machine. Finally, check on the backup plan and redundancy for recovery from any disasters or malfunctions.
Our VPS platform can support multiple database types with quick installation using Linux package management or bread basket. Deploy a MySQL server VPS in minutes with the ability to make secure remote connections to store and retrieve your organizations data. Improve overall performance by offloading your SQL processing to a private environment. Manage your database with phpmyadmin that is available for quick installation with bread basket. You can also deploy other SQL servers such as SQLITE, Mongodb, Marinadb, PostgreSQL and many more.
As opposed to being facilitated on one single occurrences of a physical server, facilitating is conveyed on a virtual parcel which draws its asset, for example, circle space, from a broad system of fundamental physical servers. In the event that one server goes disconnected it will have no impact on accessibility, as the virtual servers will keep on pulling asset from the rest of the system of servers.
Rather than being hosted on one single instances of a physical server, hosting is delivered on a virtual partition which draws its resource, such as disk space, from an extensive network of underlying physical servers. If one server goes offline it will have no effect on availability, as the virtual servers will continue to pull resource from the remaining network of servers.
