Server hosting refers to offsite management and upkeep of hardware resources that are designated for a company’s use. By paying a monthly fee to a hosting service, companies can reap the benefits of having a full IT infrastructure without all the cost associated with equipment maintenance, training and updates.
Greater data protection
One of the most popular reasons behind server hosting is the security given to a company’s data. Typical problems faced by most organizations are keeping data secure and backed up. Data security is easily managed with server hosting providers as their server resources are protected within data centers behind multiple firewalls and physical security measures. Data backups are likewise handled by leveraging the resources of the data center as a whole and multiple redundancies are used to store a client’s data in multiple locations to prevent against data loss and hardware failure.
The end result is a more comprehensive and reliable server solution that few companies could hope to achieve on their own.
