Managed VPS vs Unmanaged VPS: What’s the Difference?

Adnan Raja November 30, 2012 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

To break things down a bit, cloud VPS (Virtual Private Server) hosting is when a web hosting provider takes one massive server and partitions it up so that it can have several servers on it, each of which can run its own operating system and can be re-booted independently.  Sounds simple enough.  So what is the difference between managed VPS and unmanaged VPS?

Cloud – Perfect solution for Forex, SEO, ASP’s & Engineering firms!

Adnan Raja November 12, 2012 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

Strategizing and deploying a strong computing backbone for your company requires an approach that is both sophisticated and affordable. Because keeping budgetary requirements low is so crucial for business development, many firms are shifting from dedicated servers to Cloud Server hosting plans. Atlantic.Net has fully embraced the cloud hosting model, boasting innovative technologies in packages that fit every budget.

Cloud Hosting for SEO Companies and Advertising Agencies

Organizations in the fields of advertising, marketing, SEO, and SEM look for high-availability and consistently strong speed in hosting solutions. The stress of deadlines can be reduced if network systems are dependable. Plus, load times from any location must be optimized so that potential clients are always impressed. Cloud hosting allows advertising and SEO agencies better flexibility and reliability than is available in any other type of hosting. It’s also cost-effective. Atlantic.Net offers cloud hosting to streamline your business growth, aware that scalability is essential for advertising and marketing firms as they gain stronger footholds in the market. You can create and deploy brand-new, virtual cloud hosting servers through our user-friendly interface in as little as 30 seconds.

Cloud Server Hosting for Application Service Providers (ASPs)

Application service providers require the most sophisticated and advanced computing tools to process large amounts of data, accessible from any location. A reliable, stable, and easily adaptable system makes it possible for ASPs to optimize efficiency internally and externally. Cloud Server hosting creates an environment in which an organization can both develop its solutions and service its clients seamlessly while enjoying cost savings over dedicated servers.

Atlantic.Net’s Cloud Server hosting plans are appreciated by application service providers for a number of reasons: strong performance, unbeatable reliability, and the latest innovations in server elasticity. When businesses need to grow fast, the scalability of the cloud is a particularly enticing feature. With cloud hosting, billing is “on demand” – you only pay for the resources you need. In fact, Atlantic.Net adjusts your rate every second dependent on use. If you ever need an additional Cloud Server, you can have one running live in 30 seconds through our easy-to-use platform.

Cloud Server Hosting for Engineering Firms

Engineering firms need access to the most cutting-edge technologies to handle and store large files, with the ability to access them quickly from anywhere. An infrastructure with high-availability allows the company to complete work effectively and on time while also establishing a strong front to maintain client relationships. Cloud Server hosting provides that infrastructure, with a reduction in cost versus dedicated servers.
The Cloud Server hosting offered at Atlantic.Net meets the needs of engineering businesses in several core ways: it’s fast; its reliability is based on manifold redundancies, and it is highly scalable. No business wants its infrastructure to slow down its growth. Scalability allows your business to expand quickly without paying extra for a cushion. Atlantic.Net only bills you for what you are using during each individual second. Plus, you can create new Cloud Servers whenever you need them, and you can have them online almost immediately: it takes under a minute to complete the process.

Cloud Server Hosting for Forex and Stock Trading

Currency analysts recognize the foreign exchange market as a field typified by careful timing and, frequently, huge amounts of capital. The strength of an application hosting plan – its performance and reliability – is fundamental to well-executed Forex trading. Cloud hosting provides Forex professionals a speedy and secure system for easy accessibility to trading data. The plethora of redundancies characteristic of cloud hosting, with virtualization distributing the server across a wide variety of devices, allows your trading software to run seamlessly around the clock (even while you sleep). Cloud hosting is also more affordable than a dedicated server. Best of all, the cloud hosting solutions at Atlantic.Net allow immediate scalability: in just 30 seconds, you can create and implement a new cloud server. Forex trading should also be conducted within a computing platform in which security is the utmost priority.

Atlantic.Net has the experience to spare, with 2014 marking our platinum anniversary (20 years in business). Throughout our history, a two-pronged focus has driven us forward: exceeding expectations in both technological advancement and client support.

Adnan Raja October 24, 2012 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

If you’re starting to notice a system slowdown as your busy server and cloud connections struggle to handle your ever-increasing data volume, you’re ready to upgrade. Newer Cloud Servers with 40Gigabit infiniband vs. 1GB or 10GB can take you to a higher bandwidth and lower latency (Latency is another word for noticeable lag time between server and client. Low latency is important in user interface applications as well as processing large amounts of data backup.)

Avoiding Compliance Issues when Moving to Cloud Hosting

When companies plan to move their existing IT services to a private cloud, security and compliance issues can seem a bit daunting.  However, a move to the right cloud-based system with a respectable Cloud Hosting provider could actually reduce your compliance exposure.  A private cloud does not have a public address and is connected directly into your existing corporate network via a secure connection, such as a VPN (Virtual Private Network).  Therefore, only people inside your corporate network can access those services.

Enterprise Checklist: How to Best Utilize the Cloud

Adnan Raja April 7, 2011 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

Some factors to consider when deciding if cloud hosting services are a good fit for your business

1) Determine which IT activities take up most time and money

An internal audit is the first step in transitioning to cloud services. You need to understand where your IT budget is going, but more importantly, where your IT staff feels overwhelmed. Cloud-based resources are not necessarily a replacement for an internal IT team; some tasks and functions can be done more effectively by people on-site. But in many cases, tasks like server maintenance, security patching, and backup/recovery can be made part of a cloud services package and free up your IT staff to help with other tasks on-site.

2) Talk to a cloud services provider to see if your needs can be met by cloud-based services.

It may seem like this step comes too early, but we find that many customers – and potential customers – don’t really know about recent advances in cloud hosting capabilities. For instance: security, data privacy, plan flexibility and price have all changed significantly in the past few years, and only a professional Cloud Hosting resource like Atlantic.Net can give you the most current information.

3) Determine the potential time and cost savings of moving some or all of your computing resources to a cloud-based solution.

This cost-benefit analysis will be unique for your company, your desired slate of services, and the comparative costs of doing it all in-house. The numbers are necessary but not sufficient for the decision, as you can see in step 4.

4) Assess the risks and necessary changes to current procedures.

This last point is an intangible one; you need to decide how open your company culture is to cloud services and to decide the costs, if any, of changing the way you do business. Any big change in business services and business culture will involve an adjustment period. Only you can decide if cloud services are the right fit for your company, but a detailed look at the financial consequences of a change, together with a discussion with current cloud provision experts, can make sure you’re deciding based on the best information available.

Contact Atlantic.Net to discuss the financial and technical benefits of a shift to Cloud Hosting – it will give you the information you need to make an informed decision about what IT strategy is best for the future of your company.

Atlantic.net offers an array of services including managed, dedicated and HIPAA compliant hosting solutions – contact us for a consultation today.


The Cloud is a Cost-Effective Option for Disaster Recovery

Adnan Raja March 5, 2011 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

Cloud hosting makes for easier recovery after any type of accident

Disaster recovery is all about trade-offs: you need to find a cost-effective solution that is always active and makes it as easy as possible to recover your data and restart your business if something bad happens. Of course, “something bad” covers quite a range of events, and could be applied to a lost laptop, a server crash, a break-in, a fire at headquarters, or a larger disaster like the recent earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan.
