We provide a wide variety of hosting services, some of which are detailed below:
Dedicated servers, like their name, are dedicated solely to a single clients.
This gives added security and flexibility; you are not sharing contended resources
with anyone else. The entire dedicated server is thus leased to a single client
without any shared hosting. This offers great flexibility to our clients. They can
choose the operating system and the hardware. Full administrative control is provided
to the client through our dedicated servers.
Dedicated servers can offer a variety of operating systems and server options. These
can include Linux based Apache servers and Windows server based IIS servers. We
offer a variety of Linux distributions to suit client needs.
Dedicated servers often prove to be a highly popular hosting solution. They can
also be part of a managed hosting solution. Managed hosting is a full-system solution
dedicated to a single client offering greater flexibility and service levels. Many
businesses prefer to managed hosting to support business critical applications.
Businesses such as high volume e-commerce providers and financial services providers
prefer to use managed hosting.
Managed Hosting is another excellent solution provided by RapidSwitch. Managed
hosting offers all the flexibility of a dedicated server with the added advantage
of being managed by our expert staff. Managed hosting take the hassle of managing
a server off of your business, leaving you to concentrate better on your core business.
Managed Hosting helps your business be more productive.
Colocation is a hosting solution based in a data centre where we can manage multiple
customers. Colocation allows us to store servers, network equipment and storage
systems in a single environment, thereby greatly reducing your costs. Clients provide
their own servers, and we provide our space and expert management. Businesses are
increasingly recognising the advantages of storing their mission-critical equipment
in a colocation facility.
Colocation is in high demand due to the significant savings in both expenditures
and time a company can achieve by utilising a shared colocation facility. Colocation
services allow a business to enjoy great benefits of scale. As critical infrastructure
is placed under under secure management, telecommunications, Internet, application
service providers and content providers, as well as enterprises, are afforded more
freedom to do what they do best. Major types of colocation customers include E-commerce
companies using collocation for greater redundancy; telecom companies using colocation
to exchange data with other nodes, and large scale enterprises utilising our services
for disaster mitigation and backups.
