- What's the difference between a private and a public cloud server?
- A Veber Private Cloud Server will provide hosted services to a limited number of people behind a firewall with no access from the internet, hence "private". The servers are typically accessed via a corporate VPN and are essentially a private extension of your own network but based within the cloud.
Veber Public Cloud Servers can be accessed from the internet via a normal internet connection.
- Why would you choose a Veber Private Cloud or a Veber Public Cloud?
- It's like a car – you choose which model you like driving! Each option has its strengths and weaknesses. A private cloud is accessible from specific places of your choosing whilst a public cloud is accessible from anywhere with an internet connection.
- What’s the difference between a Veber DS & a Veber Cloud Hosting Solution?
- The difference between a dedicated server and a cloud server is quite simple:
– with a dedicated server you get all the power of that piece of equipment and it’s dedicated to you – with a cloud infrastructure the resources are shared out, but the benefit is that a cloud hosting solution is infinitely scalable and you get many funky features like high availability and distributed resource management.
- Do cloud servers use hard drives?
- Yes, they do, but not in a traditional sense, the hard drives we use for our cloud hosting solution are attached to the cloud nodes via ISCSI or Fibre Channel and are viewed as a remote disk. The cloud nodes do have hard drives in them, but they use them for running their own operating system – no customer data is ever stored locally.
- How do I manage my cloud server?
- You manage your cloud server by simply logging into the cloud control panel interface which was emailed to you when you signed up – from there you can manage your cloud server, restart, shut down or start your system – you can even see it from bios level upwards.
- What's DRS?
- Distributed Resource Scheduler - this is the VMWare system of managing CPU and memory resources across a VMWare cluster. If the system realises one system is using too much memory or CPU resources, it can automatically move the system to a lower resource using server. This is a standard feature for all our cloud servers.
- How do I know which level Cloud Hosting Solution is best for me?
- It’s difficult to tell sometimes, but it’s easiest to give us a call or email us – we can then advise you on the best course to go down. We’ve over ten years’ experience in the hosting arena and we know roughly what you’d need – additionally as cloud solutions are scalable, we can change the spec of your server quite easily, sometimes even on the fly – taking a little bit of worry out of your solution.
