Data102 Cloud Services

New Virtual Private Server Platform a Boon for Colorado Springs Businesses

Data102 Cloud ServicesData102 announced today the release of a new virtual private server (VPS) platform, the latest in a series of cloud innovations now being made available to customers in Colorado and throughout the globe. The new cloud VPS service features dramatically improved hardware, increased storage, a customer-friendly management application, and straight-forward online ordering.

“The performance of our new VPS platform is orders of magnitude greater than our previous system,” said Travis Taylor, Vice President of Business Development at Data102. “Our customers will see the difference.”

A VPS is a cloud-based computer that shares resources to maximize efficiency, guarantee uptime, and reduce costs. Cloud virtual private servers provide a month-to-month, low-cost, hassle-free option for small and medium sized businesses looking to avoid the high startup costs and maintenance required by traditional dedicated servers. Customers retain full access and control of their virtual server without the burden of purchasing and maintaining expensive hardware. Data102 maintains the virtual private servers in its downtown Colorado Springs data center, providing customers with peace of mind knowing that their systems are guaranteed to stay online and available 24/7/365.

With Data102’s new online portal, customers can have a virtual machine built and ready to go in mere minutes. Term contracts are not required, and upgrades are instantaneous. A VPS with Data102 provides all of the functionality of a traditional server without the cost or hassle. For these reasons, many small businesses have found cloud virtual private servers from Data102 to be the perfect solution to meet their IT needs.

Customers will notice a dramatic difference between traditional Virtual Private Servers and the new all-SSD platform provided by Data102. Each Cloud VPS from Data102 utilizes a 40gbps network to connect each server to the high speed, protected storage.

The new VPS offering from Data102 runs on Linux well-known KVM virtualization and takes advantage of the feature rich OnApp orchestration platform. OnApp allows for the automatic provisioning of Windows, Linux, and FreeBSD operating systems and provides users with an easy to use HTML5 console interface. These vast improvements in performance, access, and online account management make Data102’s virtual private server platform the ideal solution for all of Colorado Springs’ small businesses.

“We’re not stopping there,” said Taylor. “We already have plans in place to add additional cloud services to complement our VPS platform in the coming months. Cloud technology is improving all the time, so we are working hard to stay ahead of the pack.”

Harness the Cloud with Virtual Private Servers

The Cloud“The cloud” is a term being thrown around a lot these days, and for good reason. But many people really don’t understand exactly what “the cloud” is or how it affects them or their business. Though as cloud technology develops, it creates more and more opportunities for innovation and can ultimately lead to greater productivity and profits for your business.

What is “The Cloud”?

Basically, the cloud is a general term for the systems in place that allow individual users or companies to store files on a hosted server instead of a single computer. A basic example is Google Drive or Dropbox, which allow you to store a certain number of gigabytes for free on a server, which you can then access from any computer or mobile device with Internet access. The concept is simple, but the applications are leading to innovations that will dramatically change the digital landscape. More recently, applications and even entire servers have been added to the list of services cloud computing can provide.

Virtual Private Servers

Virtual private servers (VPS) harness the power of the cloud to provide a more affordable option for companies that don’t want the startup costs, maintenance, or service hassles that come with running their own servers. A virtual private server runs on a physical server owned and maintained by a provider, like Data102, and functions just like a regular server.

Thanks to new advances in virtualization, a VPS server can run multiple operating systems and software simultaneously. Businesses still have full access to their own software and manage their side of the server while Data102 takes care of the hardware.

The VPS solution has a number of benefits for small businesses, specifically:

  • Affordability
  • Scalability
  • Simplified disaster recovery
  • High availability
  • No external maintenance
  • Double network redundancy
  • Seamless integration with collocated servers, voice, backup systems, and firewalls
  • Website management through the Ops portal
