Which server solution is for you?

So you need to find a server solution, and you don’t know where to start. You’ve heard phrases like “Virtual Server” and “Dedicated Server” thrown around, but which to choose?

Here’s a quick rundown of what our solutions offer.

Virtual Private Server

Virtual Private Servers (VPS) provide a cost-effective method of storage for you, by retaining full administrative or root privileges over its server at a fraction of the cost of running a dedicated physical server. Typically VPSs are geared towards customers who do not require very high resource servers, although we at SALT provide a variety of VPS packages based on OS or Hyper-Visor (VMware) virtualisation to ensure that all your needs are met.

The VPS are hosted on Simplivity Omnicubes with full redundancy and high performance. You’ll be able to access your servers via RDP or the internet for ease of management. Or we can manage the server on your behalf – which includes regular backups, monitoring and patch management.

Physical Servers
Is your server sitting under a table somewhere, subject to power failures, theft or excessive heat? We can help! We offer physical servers on a rental basis, and use only top-class Dell hardware including hardware maintenance and insurance. We can even manage the server on your behalf, which includes regular backups, monitoring and patch management.

All servers are hosted locally in our professional data centre which has 24/7 power, full climate control, finger print / video access control and much more to standards you will only find in corporate environments, where money is no object. As with virtual servers, you will have total control over these machines with immediate assistance in times of need.
