Many of us are confused these days when it comes to terminology related to the cloud infrastructure. Virtual private servers and dedicated servers were already confusing enough and now comes smart dedicated servers. We wonder with ” smart ” added, this server might have the superpower to understand our workloads, and it would automatically launch a server as per the needs, which to our surprise, is actually true.
Smart dedicated servers are single-tenant servers available on cloud platforms that can be launched by a single click. This saves us from the provisioning time and a monthly commitment.
Smart dedicated servers are more appealing to heavy workloads. Here are few points supporting the statement:
When the user is unsure of the resources, he has a platform to test and run a specific configuration as per his utilization. He can test and shuffle the resources without paying for a whole dedicated box for a month.
Security is enhanced as the resources are not shared. The website or application is no longer vulnerable to attacks.
These servers are cost-effective as compared to the traditional dedicated servers. Ready to launch images available as per the requirement.
Businesses with colossal traffic or concurrent users choose to go with smart dedicated servers.
Also, companies with large resource requirements that are into ERP, Artificial intelligence, Logistics, Healthcare, and data security prefer dedicated servers.
Smart dedicated servers won’t be an ideal fit for:
Users who are running a static website
Websites with limited traffic.
Users who want to host multiple static websites on a single server
Virtualization: to create VM’s on the public cloud
Lower resource utilization
In such cases, Virtual private servers can be used as they are resource-limited and provide better performance with respect to shared hosting.
Website or application development websites usually require control panels like Cpanel or Plesk. Smart dedicated servers bundled with such popular control panels work best for managing websites. These control panels provide secure platforms and a user-friendly interface for the admins.
