Virtual Dedicated Servers (VDS)
« on: March 06, 2008, 03:32:26 AM »
A virtual dedicated server or virtual private server (VPS) is the technique to offer one of the methods of partitioning a server computer so as in can be made available to multiple users. That way, each server would have the fa├žade as well as the capabilities of being able to run on its own on a dedicated computer or machine. With every vps hosting, there would be a developed operating system, which could independently run as well as reboot each server.

This kind of specific hosting is actually not a new technology. It has been in common practice for mainframe computers. Virtual dedicated server technology was born with the improvement of several virtualization software as well as technologies for the other architectures. Overall, it acts as a kind of bridge between the shared hosting services. Probably the biggest advantage in using a virtual private server would be the lower cost compared to dedicated servers.

As you make your selection for the appropriate company, these questions might be able to help you out with the one which you should select.

1. What are the host's specifications such as the CPU, RAM and network thorough put?

2. How many VDS would be running on the host server, which you would be on?

3. How would resource contention be handled? For example, what would happen if the other virtual dedicated servers on the host that you are using were running processes that are CPU/RAM-intensive?

4. Lastly, would you have a dedicated minimum RAM/CPU/Network usage amount? How much?

Want to host your site with that perfect web host who can give good uptime and prompt custom support? Look no further. We highly recommend hosting your sites, forums and blogs with hostgator or bluehost. If you have not registered your domain name yet, you can do it for cheap with godaddy

Each virtual server is isolated from the others (or "Private"), and access to hardware resources (RAM, CPU, Disk Space, Network throughput) is managed by the "host" server. So, for instance, a server may have 2GB RAM, 100GB of disk space, and 2 x 2GHz processors, with 10 VPSes on it.

A virtual private server (VPS, also referred to as Virtual Dedicated Server or VDS) is a method of splitting a server. Each virtual server can run its own full-fledged operating system, and each server can be independently rebooted.

The practice of partitioning a single server so that it appears as multiple servers has long been common practice in mainframe computers, but has seen a resurgence lately with the development of virtualization software and technologies for other architectures.

A virtual server is the best stopover if you are looking to move from shared hosting but cannot go for dedicated hosting yet. Both the virtual private server (VPS) and the virtual dedicated server (VDS) are referred to as virtual servers. A VPS is a bit different from a VDS though. The virtual dedicated server is considered more powerful than the virtual private server.

he other benefits of a VDS are the same as that of a VPS.

    * You get to be in control of the virtual server. You can choose to configure your server(s) the way you like.
    * The server allows you to install the applications you want.
    * You can host as many websites as you want without worrying about the limitations of space and bandwidth.
    * You can enjoy several additional services as offered by the host. You have the flexibility of removing and changing these services anytime.
    * The virtual server offers security from the threats on other websites. It lets you employ measures to counter hackers and the like.

Well VDS combine the power and flexibility of a dedicated server with the cost savings of shared hosting. I think that companies get most of the advantage of a dedicated server, because  it is much common on a monthly basis. I think that Virtual Dedicated Server acts just like a real dedicated server. It starts off with a default install of software and services including a mail transport agent, a web server, and an SSH server.

VDS Technology is a new technology based on the concept of partitions on mainframes and advanced resource area to divide a team in many virtually isolated servers. A VDS is simply a server running within another server. Each VDS acts like a dedicated server but shares the same hardware.

HI,

A virtual private server web hosting (VPS) is a method of dividing a physical server computer into multiple servers so that each has the appearance and capabilities of running on its own dedicated machine.

VDS is a great technology. This is a set of programming interfaces  that provide a single interface for managing disks in operating systems Windows Server 2003. VDS allows you to manage storage hardware and disks, and for creating volumes on those disks.

Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS) Expertise is a brand spanking new expertise based on the idea of partitions on mainframes and advanced resource scheduling to divide a computer in to lots of virtually isolated servers. A VDS basically put is, a server that runs inside another server.

Virtual dedicated server hosting, and defined as virtual private servers, delivering one way section 1 host server onto multiple servers. Virtual dedicated server hosting, also known as virtual private servers, put one way sections of one computer into multiple hosts. Each server receives a facade and the ability to run on your computer or private special machine.
