Customize as You Grow
Upgrading a managed server is a manual process, which allows for greater customizability. In addition, by customizing your server to fit your specifications, you can ensure it offers the maximum performance and security needed by your business.
Grow When You Need It
The elasticity and flexibility of the cloud allow you to add or remove computing power, memory and hard drive space with the click of a button. Scale your IT resources up or down to adjust for traffic fluctuations.
The flexibility of hybrid allows you to select the best platform for each application, creating an optimized architecture. Hybrid allows scalable web applications to move to the cloud, freeing up high-performance servers for intensive operations, such as databases.
High Degree of Security
Since a managed server is a single-tenant environment, the security options are greater. For industries that require stricter security protocols, such as PCI compliance for credit card processing, managed hosting may be better. Customer data is stored more securely in this environment.
Private Cloud Available
Many cloud environments are “public,” meaning resources are shared, which can lead to the perception of a lack of security. Hostway’s managed private cloud offers virtual environments to help meet administrative control, performance or security needs, where you are given full control over the virtual machines running within your cloud.
Security Linked In
Through the pairing of secure servers with cloud resources, it is possible to maintain advanced data protection. Sensitive data can be stored on the physical servers away from public-facing assets to assist with security and compliance concerns.
Easy to Budget
Since managed servers are physical hardware, the costs are often fixed. This allows for easier budgeting, and is good for businesses with steady traffic and predictable resource requirements.
Pay for What You Use
Many public cloud environments charge for usage – only pay for what you use. For businesses with traffic peaks and seasonal trends, this model most is cost-effective.
Best of Both Worlds
Hybrid Hosting provides cost savings for many businesses. If your managed server needs increase, you would have to purchase extra hardware. If you require extra security measures, your costs could skyrocket as you fill these gaps. Hybrid Hosting provides efficient use of all resources to maximize your savings.
Hostway's Managed Hosting Servers allow for extensive customization, which leads to slightly longer deployment windows. However, if your business has specific hardware requirements, the wait will be worth it.
Quick and Easy
With Hostway’s FlexCloud Servers, deploying a ready-to-use server is quick and easy. Simply select your specifications and in about 15 minutes your server is deployed, configured and ready for use.
Worth the Wait
Hybrid environments require the most complex setup; however, Hostway works hard to ensure your hybrid environments are live and active within 48 hours. Some customizations can take slightly longer, but the performance will be worth the wait.
