Thanks to the growing fondness of mobile offices between Czech independent professionals and small companies, we are expanding its supply of virtual servers with VPS Windows Plus program, which will fully satisfy demands of any regularly used application.
Virtual servers no longer represent a tool of advanced webhosting, mailhosting, or similar services. Independent professionals – traders and small companies – are learning to utilize advantages of the remote access to virtual equipment in larger and larger extent. They like to rely on use of their applications or servers at any time and from any location while they do not need to invest time and means to acquire and maintain their own server, and they do not need to adjust to disadvantages of the typical webhosting either.
A virtualization node usually consists of more servers that are able to immediately take over tasks of a failed server in case of an emergency. You cannot achieve that with a regular desktop.
The new hosting program, VPS Windows Plus, provides performance that exceeds potential of many office computers. It features three 2,400 MHz processor cores, 3 GB operating memory, 90 GB available on a hard disk with approximately 80 MB/s data throughput, and 100 Mb/s Internet connectivity. The price, together with the Windows Operating System starts already at € 24,- a month for the first selected payment period. If larger disc space is needed, it is possible to utilize an option of its expansion at the external data storage site of Coolhousing.
“Clients of virtual servers on the Windows platform very often purchase this service for the purpose of operating various, originally desktop applications. Therefore, they supplement or completely replace their own computers with the reliable service with regular data back-ups and technical support. It is no longer necessary to have a notebook with all sensitive data together with you in the field in order to consult, for example, the accounting system,” Jiří Dvořák, Coolhousing Sales manager, explains advantages of virtual mobile offices. The Coolhousing virtual servers are the most frequently utilized for operation of the Prohoda accounting programs by Stormware, payroll systems, such as Avensio by Alfa software, various office packages, such as Open Office, Libre Office, or Office 365, and last but not least, a lot of analytical systems for stock-exchange trading, such as MetaTrader.
A virtual server with the Windows OS can be used as a virtual office. You can access a billing SW from anywhere, process attendance regardless of a location, and use your favourite office SW to process a quote for a customer.
The main advantage of virtual servers compared to the typical ones rests in lower total operating costs. Purchase of a physical server represents considerable costs of hardware, software, and a housing server. Compared to that, virtual servers share one server or server cluster owned by the operator, which enables spread of initial, as well as operating costs, among several virtual server customers. Nevertheless, from the user’s aspect, virtual servers do not differ from physical ones in any way.
Contrary to the traditional servers, it is possible to completely automatically back-up virtual servers while under operation, and in case of a failure, transfer to another physical server without any impact on accessibility of services.
