How a dedicated server can save you time and money
There are a number of reasons why dedicated servers remain so popular, but in the end, it comes down to the most important two: time and money. So, how can dedicated servers save you time and make you more money?
In terms of pure performance, dedicated servers are still outstanding. When it comes to per-pound speed and efficiency, dedicated servers will simply give you outstanding results. You’ll be able to work more efficiently, and will save time as a result. And, of course, time is money.
They’ll handle IO more effectively
Cloud storage is a wonderful thing, but when it comes to disk IO, dedicated servers do tend to get slightly better results. For businesses that require large and complex storage options, the benefits of cloud storage far outweigh the negatives, but dedicated servers are often the best option for smaller companies who don’t want to experience any slowdown when multiple employees are accessing the server at once.
If you’ve got a single dedicated server in place, security can be wonderfully easy to manage. After all, you’ll know exactly where the server is and who has access to it, day-to-day (this is obviously not the case with cloud hosting). In terms of physical security, dedicated servers are definitely the best option.
No sharing resources
We hinted at this earlier, but it’s worth reiterating: when you have a dedicated physical server, you get total control over its resources. You don’t have to worry about the demands of other users affecting your day-to-day work. This can also be the case with the cloud – depending on how your server is configured – but not always. More resources mean more efficiency.
Every company has different needs when it comes to their servers, which is why many still prefer a dedicated option. A dedicated server can be configured to suit your individual requirements and to perform best in the ways you require. Cloud hosting’s nature means this can’t always be guaranteed in the same way, even though its practicalities outweigh this for many people.
