Dedicated Server and its origin in web presence

Dedicated Servers were originally sold at very high prices due to the hardware cost and setup of huge datacenter which had servers which were size of a mid-size fridge. However, with time and technology, they turned over-time and they were much easily affordable by price. Combination of good hardware, network connections, processors and many more combine to result in dedicated server which were always dreamed of. Their sleek size and fit-to-space advantage took over all the other aspects. Newer technology such as Dual Cores, AMD X2’s and then Quad Cores and Dual Quad Core’s were introduced for responsive and dynamic performance. Many Brands also provide high-end corporate servers which range upto 2TB of RAM or above. Their processors are designed to provide optimal performance. read more

Dedicated Server(s) Data Migration with minimal Downtime

These are the points you should remember before transferring a data from one dedicated server to another:-

1)First thing you should remember to give notice to your visitors and users that your website will be down during a specified period of time for planned migration. Ideally, this time should be in the middle of the night (to most of your visitors), to minimize the inconvenience to clients.

2)Prepare DNS for the move:You should make sure that all your DNS records are set to something like an hour. This should be done 48 hours before your move. By doing this will ensure that when you move the website and switch the IP address in the DNS records, people will get to the new location quickly. If you want to double-check the website before it comes back up, add in a new “A” record that already points to the new server’s IP address. read more

Types of Hard Disks

There are four types of Hard -Disks which are given below:-

1) SAS Serial Attached SCSI.
2) SCSI Small Computer Systems Interface.
3) SATA Serial ATA or Serial Advanced Technology Attachment.
4) IDE Integrated/Intelligent Drive/Device Electronics.

1) SAS Serial Attached SCSI:Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) carries SCSI forward to new generations of storage . It builds on 20-plus years of reliable SCSI technology with vast enhancements added over the years.This HDD’s quality, reliability and universal compatibility will more than meet the requirements of the future enterprise storage market. Due to its SCSI forbearers, it will benefit storage management, it reduces the risk of storage technology change and increase system interoperability, flexibility and scalability. SAS is point-to-point technology with expander architecture. This combination offers high performance and reliable solutions which are quickly and easily deployable in the market. Note that this is serial, not parallel, so the drives cannot be chained. SAS drives are typically nearly as fast as their SCSI counterparts with the added benefit of a serial bus. read more
