Our third-generation Managed Private Server (MPS) plans are the perfect solution for companies with high-traffic, resource-intensive Internet sites. The MPS hosting solution combines dedicated hardware, software, and managed services. By outsourcing your hosting requirements to us, you eliminate costly expenditures for 24x7 administration teams, security updates/maintenance, hardware equipment, redundant high speed bandwidth, data backups, and connectivity. Most important, you'll have the freedom to concentrate on the success of your business rather than worry about disk drives, routers, and switches. Our comparison page shows the different features available along with pricing.
Managed Private Server Options
|Managed Server||MPS is a managed hosting platform. While you have root level access, from the start an MPS has the latest security patches installed for all critical software such as the operating system and Apache web server. User-installed software such as PHP and MySQL is not automatically upgraded since there is a small chance that may impact your web site. Instead, as new versions are released, users can upgrade using a simple vinstall command.
By contrast, a dedicated server is typically unmanaged, meaning you would be responsible for all software maintenance and patching.
|Backups||All servers have RAID and are backed up daily to disk. Files can be easily restored from the previous day's backup via the /backup "directory" or a shell program used to restore from tape or disk (a small fee may apply for tape restores).|
|E-mail Limitations||Each MPS runs its own mail server so there are no default e-mail limitations. You can configure limitations on message size, etc., if desired.|
|Technical Support||ITS provides US-based technical support. We value low-volume, high quality personal service so there is no massive call center to deal with.|
|Reliability||Your MPS will have all the power backups - including automated high capacity battery backups and redundant emergency power generators - provided in a premier Verio data center. Redundant connections to over 30 Internet carriers are included.|
A Managed Private Server is essentially a Virtual Private Server running on dedicated, high-powered hardware that provides some of the cost savings of a shared-server hosting solution. How? By leveraging a managed platform to provide common features such as automated daily backups that can cost several hundred dollars on a dedicated server.
