“Do I need a VDS, or a dedicated server, or the cloud option perhaps? Shall I run backups nightly or hourly? Do I need a load balancer? Shall I consider a dual-datacenter setup to reduce downtime risk? Would I need to commission regular security testing in order to sleep soundly at night?”
You keep playing with online configurators, watching price estimates change, and after hours of this you are still not sure whether you have found the optimal solution.
There are no online configurators to endlessly play with. All you need to do is to give us a call, drop us an email or click the chat button – and start talking to us.
We start with discussing your real business needs and requirements:
- What kind of website, application or platform are you looking to host?
- How much money would you likely be gaining annually if your site or application never went down?
- What impact would it have on your business if your document storage became inaccessible for 15 minutes? 30 minutes? 3 hours?
- How important it is for you to ensure that the defenses of your sites and systems are never breached?
- How many potential buyers have been visiting your site or e-shop daily for the last 90 days? Is the number increasing? How fast?
- Does your marketing department run any campaigns that could drive an exponential – albeit temporary – increase in your site’s visitor numbers?
- How likely is your site’s content to go viral, resulting in a temporary spike of usage?
Not just on the network, hardware and OS level – but on the application level as well, as we don’t see what good 100% server uptime does for a business if, say, an e-shop it contains is not taking orders for hours at a time because of a problem with its application code.
