The customers have several possibilities to deploy their servers at Safe Host.
Managed Server - Blade Hosting
Safe Host’s Managed Blade Hosting platform offers a secure and cost effective IT infrastructure which can grow with your business. The platform bundles data center resilience, dedicated server capacity and managed networking into a single and scalable service.
Customers’ can easily integrate Safe Host’s security, back-up and load balancing services into the blade platform for a more complete server hosting.
Managed Server - Virtual Hosting
Safe Host’s virtual server service gives customers the functionality of a dedicated server at a fraction of the cost. A virtual private server is functionally equal to a dedicated server but can be more cost-effective and has several operational advantages.
Resources used by the Virtual Machine (CPU and memory) are monitored by Safe Host and regularly reported so decisions can be taken to increase resources where necessary to improve performance, or even reduce them. Resources, such as disk space, memory or CPU, can be adjusted on demand.
Managed Server – OS Management
High availability of servers is a prerequisite for business critical applications. This service provides a dedicated systems service for Windows or Linux machines. Safe Host’s team of systems administrators will manage all OS operations, allowing organisations to focus IT resources on core internal applications.
Releases and bulletins are monitored by Safe Host’s dedicated Windows Update Service (WSUS) and all recommendations are examined. This infrastructure ensures that customers’ systems are at all times up-to-date with the latest relevant security patches and updates.
Status packages of Linux servers are monitored using Nagios ensuring that customers are notified when a new Debian update is available. Safe Host uses standard validated and controlled updates before they are applied.
