Need more virtual space for business? Opt for our virtual server hosting

Virtual servers are not a new technology, but are now being widely implemented for business use. The key benefits of virtual server hosting are its performance, ease of management and reduced costs. Traditional servers rely on physical infrastructure, normally kept on-side or in data centres.

Virtual servers remove the need for this because all data is stored and backed-up on a cloud. As more business operations move to the cloud, SEACOM Business’s virtual server hosting helps to resolve some of the problems related with old technologies. These included the need for expensive hardware, and the fact that deployment and scaling is slow.

Old technologies also face environmental concerns related to high electricity usage. As an alternative, server virtualisation allows businesses to enjoy excellent processing power using a cloud-based data centre. High performance and effective hybrid cloud enablement ensure that businesses transitioning to the cloud can do so with ease.

With virtual server hosting, a physical server is divided into multiple virtual servers. Physical servers consume a lot of power and are expensive to maintain. When these servers are divided, this means power usage is substantially reduced.

Organisations can save money on electricity, set up costs and maintenance. Since there is no need for physical servers or hardware, companies can also save on office space. Virtual servers are an example of a green technology that allows enterprises to save money while helping to combat environmental issues.

SEACOM's virtual server hosting enables full online back-up

Back-ups are a business requirement. Data loss and unplanned downtime will negatively affect any business. SEACOM Business’s virtual server hosting offers a comprehensive back-up solution that is completely cloud-based. Reliable cloud storage means that data can be quickly and easily retrieved from any location. If issues arise, they can be quickly diagnosed and resolved at any time of day.

Our virtual servers provide multiple layers of protection, including ransomware and malware protection. Using our virtual management console, IT teams can determine both current and historical issues, stopping potential issues before they occur. In the event that issues happen, easy recovery options are available. Data is restored to the latest backup point, which results in minimal data loss.

Our secure and affordable back-up solution includes flexible scheduling, meaning that backups can take place at any time during the day and night. Cloud backup is faster than traditional backups and our virtual servers do not interrupt normal business operations. IT teams can make regular, daily backups to prevent data loss or issues related to security breaches because of our streamlined architecture.
