Our virtual server hosting solutions are scalable for businesses

Digital transformation is taking place for organisations around the world. With more online services and business operations taking place in the digital sphere, our reliance on the cloud has never been stronger. It can be costly for businesses to scale up their data storage, especially when physical infrastructure is needed.

Virtual server hosting is a cost-effective alternative. It allows businesses to increase their server size as their data requirements grow. Servers tend to crash if there is an unexpected increase in traffic volumes. With SEACOM Business’s virtual server hosting, this does not happen.

Our virtual servers are quickly and easily scalable according to the growing data demands of the organisation. We offer unlimited traffic on our servers and real-time scalability. Businesses can upgrade their RAM and storage in a few seconds and enjoy the peace of mind that the server can handle their expanding data needs.

Our virtual server hosting includes predictable pricing. Businesses only pay for what they use. If their data needs increase, they can quickly and easily upgrade their package. Apart from the benefits of reduced hardware and electricity costs, businesses can save money by ensuring they have the correct server size for their file and data storage.

More virtual space for businesses

Large organisations with multiple branches or offices can consolidate their data on a virtual server. It is quick and easy to manage, and stores all business’s data and files in one place. Our virtual servers are dedicated and offer unlimited hosting capabilities. Custom configuration means that businesses can decide exactly how to use the server, including the scheduling of back-ups and the size of the server.

These virtual servers are also private. Organisations do not share RAM, CUP, or data storage with other users. Users enjoy a dedicated server because the physical server is divided up into multiple virtual servers using virtual walls. In addition, customers are not affected by data security breaches, such as denial of service (DoS) attacks, that may happen to other users hosted on the server. Full security and performance is ensured because each user is allocated their own bandwidth and storage.

SEACOM Business’s virtual servers support Windows and Linux-based operating systems. Not all servers are compatible with all operating systems, so this is a key benefit of our remote hosting solution. SEACOM Business is also a Microsoft-validated Cloud OS Network partner. This allows our customers to expand their workload onto our Azure platform. Microsoft Azure is a cloud-based computing service which is commonly used by businesses to manage applications and services through Microsoft data centres.

Multiple operating systems and applications can be run on a single server, which allows businesses to customise their server usage according to their individual needs. Organisations can set up multiple virtual servers to ensure that maximum performance is achieved.

If one server fails, a second server can quickly take over, ensuring that all data is effectively stored and backed-up at all times. For more information or to get a quote for our virtual server hosting, email us at marketing@seacom.com or leave us a message.
