Purchasing your own servers, installing Linux OS; renting a space in a data center, etc. These are all things that are related to server co-location services. The set up usually takes a week, but still the solution isn’t full proof because you have just one physical server where downtimes can occur at any time.

How many times have you gotten a call telling you that your Linux box had crashed while you were travelling? The concept of co-locating your server with data centers will eventually die out one day. It’s time to switch to a new Cloud Platform.

Introducing the Cloud Server

The control panel of Cloud Server

Some businesses require a dedicated server to host important web applications such as the ERP system. Eventually, most of them will have their apps hosted on a single physical server, which exposes them to a single point of failure.

Imagine being able to provision a server in minutes or upgrade a server automatically. This is the idea behind the Cloud Server. Totally customisable, each Cloud Server gives you full root access to more than a dozen Linux distributions. The price depends on the size of the server you’re buying, and how much bandwidth you’ll use.

To Decision Makers
No more hardware upgrades, purchases etc
Preferred infra for dedicated online apps
Lower maintenance costs and faster to market
Reliable image backup for your data
Can be scaled easily to your requirements
To Semi Techy Guys
Cloud Server sizes are measured by the amount of physical memory reserved for your instance and range from 256 MB up to 15.5 GB
Choose from a variety of popular 64-bit Linux® Distributions—Ubuntu, Debian, Gentoo, CentOS, Fedora, Arch and Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Using our online control panel and API, each Cloud Server can be upgraded or removed as your needs change
To Tech Geeks
Xen hypervisor for Linux
Storage is RAID-10 protected for superior performance and durability. If a host failure should occur, we bring it back and your data is preserved.
For Linux distributions, every Cloud Server gets four virtual CPUs.
No oversubscription. Reserved RAM and storage.
SAS 70 Type II – pertains to the managed hosting customers, Cloud Servers, Cloud Files customers and all data centers.
API File Injection – put a file directly into the file system so that it’s accessible inside the instance. It could be a license file—whatever you need.
Separate public and private network interfaces. Private bandwidth is free and provides inter-Cloud Server communication as well as access to Cloud Files.
Snapshot based server images—scheduled or on-demand. Useful for creating “gold” images or backups.
Support for multiple public IP addresses.
Shared IPs for high-availability configurations
Linux distribution of your choice.
Web-based console access. Access your server if there is a boot or network problem.
Bootable rescue mode. File system access to repair a troubled Cloud Server.

Cloud Server, starts from RM400/Month
256MB RAM, 10GB Disk, 10GB/Month Incoming & Outgoing Bandwidth, CentOS 5.5 Ready-to-Use Setup; Single dedicated IP Address

My question, why web designer does need this web hosting such as cloud server? Sorry, newbie here.. :)

Let’s compare between Cloud Server and Cloud Sites (http://goo.gl/wALJ)

Cloud Sites are designed to host general website with no more than 5,000 unique visitors a day.

If you have more than 5,000 visitors to your website, we assume your requirement for disk space, bandwidth and control are increasing as well.

A conventional Cloud Sites package, or most of any shared web hosting package out there have a pre defined bandwidth and space allocated. It is harder or impossible to be extended.

A Cloud Servers works differently. It is like owning your own Linux Box. We have enough disk space and bandwidth to sell to you at a lower cost. Anytime your requiremnt increase, we can subscribe to more, to near unlimited.

In short, if web designer has a web project with more than 5,000 visitors, then you can start considering moving your hosting to Cloud Servers.

Thanks Pin.

Another question, I have a web hosting unlimited package from exabytes. it’s shared hosting but have unlimited bandwidth, unlimited diskspace. I know, there it no such thing as unlimited in diskspace and bandwidth,right? But can a website handle more than 5,000 visitor per month using this Exabytes Unlimited packages (ebiz gold unlimited) ?

We are running the Propnet Malaysia portal. We’re about to reach the maximum bandwidth allowed in a month. Would like to know if it’s better to go for the Exabytes Unlimited Plan or their Semi-D Plan. Pls enlighten us. Thanks.

Before we go any further, check this out http://intodns.com/propnet.my. Your DNS servers have some issues and you have some missing MX records too.

We have reviewed Exabytes Unlimited Plan earlier (pls refer to http://goo.gl/CmkeG) and it is too good to be true. The Semu-D is nothing less than that.

If you have average of 5,000 visitors a day and around RM400 a month budget, try our Cloud Server. It is a product from Rackspace and it one of the most reliable one.

We can give you an offer! Pls email pin@1.com.my

What is your hosting requirement, Rojak? If it is a website, you can consider Cloud Site which is RM80 a year.
