The value proposition for bare metal technologies is in the historical evidence that suggests most server workloads take advantage of a fraction of the actual physical resources over an extended period. By combining workloads on a single hardware platform, one can optimize the capitalized expenditure of that hardware platform. This is the model cloud service providers use to create cheaper computing resources on their platform.
You get to benefit from an economy of scale, meaning you sharing hardware with other businesses but only pay for the amount of compute and storage capacity that you use. If you need to increase your usage, you can do so through a dashboard. You have unlimited flexibility to increase or decrease your resources and can change server specifications with the demands of your business.
From an IT perspective, the flexibility of rapid solution deployment for an evolving business need is critical both to the client and the service provider. In an established environment with a long history of IT implementations, it is not easy to deploy a new solution within weeks without affecting the existing infrastructure or the available funding in a big way. Cloud hosting provides the options and advantages of quicker solution deployment and lower cost of implementation and operations.
Here’s an example of a SysGen hybrid model. As you can see, the client has an onsite server with local backup storage. Employees access their desktops, applications, files, printers, and email from the office using the local network. At the same time, data is backed up for redundancy to a cloud-based solution, and email is entirely in the cloud with Hosted Microsoft Exchange. The cloud configuration also gives employees anywhere access to their desktops, applications, files, printers, and email. (Click the photo to enlarge it).

The rapidly expanding cloud hosting industry is expected to grow nearly 20% this year to almost $250 billion in worldwide revenue, fueled largely by the proliferation of data in Internet-of-Things devices, artificial intelligence, and Software-as-a-Service business applications. Nearly 40% of small and medium businesses utilize some form of cloud hosting, which provides operational agility in the forms of improved collaboration, the ability to work remotely, better control of documents, and a reduced carbon footprint.
Cloud hosting refers primarily to the use of virtual hardware, network, storage and composite solutions from a cloud vendor. It is enabled through virtualization, whereby the entire computing capacity of an infrastructure or data center is distributed and delivered to multiple users simultaneously. The user uses underlying infrastructure to host its own applications, services and data. For example, a physical server can be virtualized and consolidated to host several cloud servers, all sharing the processor, memory, storage, network and other resources.
This managed virtualized cloud solution, powered by VMware®, includes the security of dedicated servers along with automatic backups, recovery and snapshots. You also get the support of our virtualization team, including VMware specialists who manage your physical server, virtualization layer and virtual machines so you can get the most out of your solution.
4 The amount of aggregate outbound bandwidth across all attached network interfaces (PublicNet, ServiceNet, Cloud Networks). The maximum amount of outbound public Internet bandwidth is limited to 50% of the aggregate limit. Inbound traffic is not limited. Host networking is redundant and bandwidth is delivered over two separate bonded interfaces, each able to carry 50% of the aggregate limit. We recommend using multiple Layer 4 connections to maximize throughput.

You can also deploy other SQL servers such as SQLITE, Mongodb, Marinadb, PostgreSQL and many more.
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.

Yes! Thanks to the incredible performance of KVM technology, OpenStack, and Ceph. Where a traditional VPS would rely on a half-dozen or more RAID drives locally (all SSD), it doesn't handle as many IOPS as the massively parallel handling of Ceph distributed storage. While 6 RAID SSD drives can be very, very fast, when it comes to larger numbers of accounts on a box - Ceph creates a gigantic pooled pipeline to assorted SSD's, perhaps hundreds, in order to make transfers at a blistering pace.
You should choose managed hosting if you do not have the technical skills or the time to administer a server. When comparing plans, be sure that you are comparing equal features. Are services offered in a complete bundle, or piecemeal like off a menu? Bundles may include services you will never need, while à la carte trplans may omit key features you can’t live without. Make a list of what tasks are managed and be sure that everything you need is on it.
If you currently have web hosting with another provider and are looking to move to InMotion Hosting, we can assist you with your website migration! If your current host uses cPanel, we can transfer up to 30 cPanels under 5GB completely free of cost. This transfer includes websites, databases and emails. For every cPanel or database over 30, or for cPanels over 5GB in size, we have a point system, with each additional website and database equating to 1 point. Each point over the limit costs $10/point.
Because Cloud VPS is an unmanaged VPS, it requires your own maintenance and setup. We highly suggest this product to those already comfortable with Linux and the command line. Not sure if this is what you need or worried about missing a control panel? Start a conversation with one of our Linux hosting experts and they'll point you in the right direction.
We use Ceph Storage, which gives 3N level of redundancy. In computing, Ceph is completely distributed without a single point of failure, scalable to the exabyte level, and freely available. Ceph replicates data and makes it fault-tolerant, requiring no specific hardware support. As a result of its design, the system is both self-healing and self-managing, aiming to minimize administration time and other costs.
