Eddie November 27, 2012 by under Dedicated Hosting 0 Comments

One of the most important decisions to make when choosing a virtual private server (VPS) is whether a Linux or Windows-based option is right for you.  While IT professionals often swear by one or another, these two systems are aimed at meeting the requirements of two different types of users.  Windows and Linux are both very different operating systems, with Linux being an open source operating system that is free to use and Windows a commercial operating system.  While many basic functions are shared between the two, the prices and uses of a Windows Cloud Hosting VPS and a Linux VPS are very different.

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.

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.
