What is a Virtual Private Server or VPS?
RAH offers Virtual Privtre Servers through MIcrosoft Datacenter 2016 and 2019. The VPS mimics a physical server running on a dedicated piece of HW. To the end user the experience is identical to a physical box in the office, only we are now running from the secure datacenter. Advances in processor and OS Hypervisor technology allow for a hosted virtual environment that is simpler, more secure and flexible and much less expensive that the traditional office server. It is truley a revolution in how businesses are running today.
RAH offers features and benefits that surpas the typical “box” in the office. Our VPSs are protected from unauthorized access, viruses and malware. We take security very seriously, with HW firewall servers installed to prevent intrusion or viruses. Data is backed up daily and our hardware architecture has eliminated single point of failures with redundancy built in in almost every area. At RAH each customer is allocated dedicated server resources with a fully configured OS “aka virtual environment”, where customers applications are run autonomously and securely with dedicated CPU, Memory and Disk resources tailored to meet workload demands.
A RAH VPS can be managed by the customer as the system administrator or RAH can manage on their behalf.
How often is my data backed up and is it safe?
RAH performs real time data replication via a 3 node cluster, offering triple redundancy. At any point in time three copies of your data are present.
