The Cloud Server service allows flexible management of the resources of a remote virtual server (VPS). That is, the concrete advantage of having complete control over the server machines without the disturbance of their physical management. There will be no need to update, manage or restart a physical machine.
The servers created through the Secure Online Desktop (SOD) service are always online, if one server were to have problems, this would be immediately replaced by another to guarantee the continuity of the virtual machine service.
Create the Cloud Server in a few clicks
It is possible to set up a VPS in a few steps by accessing the management panel. From this you can create and delete servers, as well as manage the resources allocated to the single virtual machine.
Payment is limited to the time of use of the service, without any contractual obligation. It is possible to stop the service at any time without any problems or additional costs.
Through the functionalities offered, it is possible to manage the created virtual machines in an extremely flexible way. The cost will always be linked to the actual resources used.
Resources automatically assigned
The Secure Online Desktop Cloud Server service allows you to set autoscaling rules for each virtual machine involved. Through this feature, it is possible to resize RAM memory, CPU and storage resources automatically, respecting customizable rules.
Resources are not wasted by avoiding that you pay for unused computing power or memory. This intelligent use of resources is managed by customizable rules for scalability.
For example: a rule could force the RAM memory to increase by 1024 Mb if the virtual machine uses more than 90% of it for a period longer than 10 minutes. You can also further limit this parameter to a maximum increase of 5 Gb within 24 hours.
Keep in mind that once RAM, CPU and disk have increased through this system, they will not automatically decrease thereafter. If the greatest demand for resources had been only a momentary peak, it will be necessary to set the starting parameters of the VPS again.
In addition, some operating systems offered as templates allow the resizing of RAM and CPU resources without restarting the machine. The reboot is however necessary in the case of resizing the storage disk or if the added RAM memory exceeds 16 Gb.
Virtual Machine backup system
SOD’s Cloud Server service also offers an automatic backup system. No additional backup management software, therefore, that can be set with four restore points: daily, weekly, monthly and yearly.
Note that the data of the machines created remain in your possession and can be downloaded locally at any time.
Operating systems included in the offer
SOD’s Cloud Server plans include operating system templates ready to be installed on the virtual machine. Numerous operating systems are available Windows, Linux and FreeBSD, 32bit as well as 64bit. In a few clicks it is possible to activate a VM, install an operating system and switch it on.
In addition to operating systems, it is also possible to have access to a JumpBox library of Open Source web applications. The offer of software available for VPS is really rich and accessible wherever you are.
No license fees for operating systems available, it’s all included in the cost of the service.
Firewall and security
With the Cloud Server of the Secure Online Desktop, a firewall is available included in the price, customizable with any rule based on the specific needs of the customer and the specific use to be made of the machine.
You won’t have to worry about anything in the security field. SOD will take care of guaranteeing always safe and robust infrastructures.
In terms of reliability, the Server Cloud service has enterprise architectures for managing redundancy. If one server turns out to be unreachable, another will take over immediately, guaranteeing the continuity of the service.
Offer and prices
There are four plans available for the Cloud Server service and can satisfy every VPS need. The costs are monthly without any time constraint, therefore it is possible to completely stop the service from one month to the next.
It is possible to take advantage of all these features through the control panel accessible from every platform: Apple, Windows and mobile. Manage your VPS in complete freedom from any device.
Create and manage your virtual server in minutes with SOD Cloud Server. You can also try the service for free for a day!
7 GOOD REASONS TO CHOOSE THE AUTOSCALING OPTION
1. The hard disk or one of the server’s hard disks is full
◊ WITHOUT Autoscaling: Services crash and users of applications running on the disk receive a disservice image of the company and risk users do not return.
◊ WITH Autoscaling: The disks are resized according to the new disk occupation.
2. The processor (CPU) goes into saturation (100% use)
◊ WITHOUT Autoscaling: Web applications respond slowly or time-outfollowing degradation and / or disservice to the user.
◊ WITH Autoscaling: The system adds the necessary CPUs.
3. The RAM memory goes into saturation (occupied 2Gb on 2Gb, occupied 6Gb on 6Gb …)
◊ WITHOUT: Web applications respond slowly or time-outfollowing degradation and / or disservice to the user. *
◊ WITH: The system adds RAM memory.
4. Increased network traffic (client delivers 100Mbps on a 100Mb network card)
◊ WITHOUT: What is called the “bottleneck” takes place, ie the system is not able to serve new users.
◊ CON: The system resizes the bandwidth.
5. Server oversizing
◊ WITHOUT: the user buys a client that is oversized compared to his needs as a result pays for features he does not use.
◊ CON: The system reduces resources in order to adapt to the real needs of the user, considerably reducing costs.
6. Installation times
◊ WITHOUT: In the face of a change, the user must re-install the entire platform on a larger system.
◊ CON: It is not necessary to re-install the software or the platform because the system resizes itself automatically.
7. Autoscaling vs scaling
Autoscaling does everything that a scaling system does, that is, it allows the user to vary them
hardware features, but it does this automatically, reducing management costs and increasing end-user satisfaction.
* In technical terms it is said that the operating system swapped.
Swapping means saving to the hard disk all the information that the system can not save in RAM because it is full, consequently the system slows down considerably because the access times to the disk are much higher than the available memory.
