Primus Virtual Private Servers
Virtual Private Servers (VPS) are isolated, virtualised server environments housed and maintained within the Primus Data Centre. A VPS provides you with the same capabilities and resources as a physical server, without the need to purchase or maintain physical hardware.
For more in-depth information on how Primus Virtual Private Servers will improve the utilization of your server environment, download our latest product sheet below.
Each VPS has its own CPU processes, scalable memory and dedicated storage for operating systems and files - secured within Primus' virtualisation environments. All VPS's are secured by dedicated firewalls and strict access policies, whilst still being available to customers for full administrative access.
Resources on Demand
Maximize the utilization of computing resources by only paying for the resources you use and apply QoS to prioritise applications and reduce bandwidth requirements.
Reduces Server Numbers
Enhance hardware utilization and save on maintenance and capital expenditure by virtualising your server environment.
Virtual servers allow your business to respond quickly to changes meaning your business can respond to changes immediately - additional resources such as CPU, Memory or Storage can be added, often in real-time, to allow your business to adapt to new circumstances.
Enhance Remote Access
A virtual server environment provides a comprehensive management solution that allows your staff to remotely access the server environment.
Rationalise Dispersed Server Environment
Reduce resource wastage by consolidating your servers into a single ubiquitous environment to leverage hardware resources more effectively to respond faster and more efficiently to business demands.
Improved Application Availability
Improved server utilization ensures resources can be allocated to applications as and when required
A virtual server environment provides your business scalability as services can be adjusted up or down as business demands dictate.
Each VPS has its own individual configuration and can house its own applications and data - in exactly the same way physical servers can.
Each VPS can have its own IP addresses, firewall policies and routing rules.
Server provisioning transitions from a Capital Expenditure cost to an Operational Expense model, where you only pay for the capacity you require.
CPU, memory, storage or additional network connectivity or IP addresses can be added - often in real time, without shutting down your server.
A VPS gives you the features and functionality of a dedicated server without the cost of building and maintaining one. If you need to host unlimited domains, have complete control of your environment and run your own applications, then you will benefit from having a VPS.
In addition, a VPS provides the ability to manage your dedicated environment directly through SSH, Citrix, Terminal Services, Remote Desktop, or your favourite server management tools.
VPS vs. Shared Hosting
A VPS eliminates the restrictions of shared hosting by giving you the power and flexibility of a dedicated server with your own set of services and customisable disk space.
Shared hosting is limited in comparison because its users do not have administrative access and software configurations cannot be customised, despite the fact that physical resources are also multiplexed.
With a VPS, you can control all aspects of your server - disk space and allocation, system resources, bandwidth and memory allotments.
