Colocation Services Presented by VPLS
Does your business have a dedicated server room in-house? Are you looking to expand your networking needs and have run out of room in your facilities? VPLS can help alleviate this burden for your business with our reliable and secure colocation services.
Also known as a carrier hotel or a carrier-neutral (or network-neutral) data center, colocation data centers provide business with services and space where they can create and maintain a point of presence (PoP). Our vTAC operations center are located within each data center, so we can provide you with monitoring and support, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. By having our vTAC in the colocation facility, you can rest assured that we can provide troubleshooting and bandwidth management services.
Colocation services have many benefits including lower costs, risk mitigation, reliability, redundancy, and connectivity.
When you choose a data center from a specific center, you have no choice but to pay for your business’s bandwidth at their prices. On top of that, when the occasion calls for you to have to change data centers in order to bring down your bandwidth costs, the move itself can be very expensive. When you use VPLS’s colocation services on the other hand, you will be able to benefit from carriers competing for your business so you can get the best bandwidth for the most competitive cost.
Whatever the weather conditions may bring—flooding, ice storms, tornadoes, hurricanes, or extreme heat or cold—our colocation facilities are built to resist power outages that may result from these weather events. You can let your mind be at ease knowing that VPLS will be monitoring your networking systems in a climate-controlled environment. Your data and networks will be protected in layers of security and VPLS will monitor your network in real-time, which will significantly reduce any downtime you may experience.
Most businesses will not have the resources to have a dedicated staff that can provide 24/7/365 monitoring, but VPLS affordably can. Not only are colocation facilities strictly climate controlled, they also have extensive power and data backups located both locally and remotely. Our power backups include generators and online batteries so you don’t need to visit the colocation facility because we have everything under control.
Although redundancy usually relates to power, within colocation facilities, it also refers to data carriers. With VPLS’s colocation services, you’re not relying on just one carrier to provide your networking needs. Our redundant fiber connections come from various service providers into each of our data centers and offer diverse paths and redundancy into the facilities. With this setup, if one carrier experiences a failure or outage, the other carrier can step in immediately without any downtime.
Our colocation facilities act as connectivity hubs, where many tier-1 network providers have their PoPs on the premises. This gives you a variety of network providers to choose from, and with these numerous choices, you can choose which provider works best for you. As you scale your business, VPLS’s colocation services can also grow with your business needs.
Whether your networking needs are big or small, whether you’re looking for a server, cabinet, or cage, VPLS can provide you with the custom-fit solution for your needs. To learn more about our colocation services, contact us today for more information.
Bare Metal Servers from Krypt
If you have a growing business and are currently using a shared hosting service, you may be encountering some growing pains. You may have already moved from one server to another and have found how inconvenient and expensive it is. When you share server space, then moving to new server space will be a common occurrence, costly in both time and money.
What can help you and your business is a server that can grow with your business—a serve space that’s all your own: a bare metal server from VPLS hosting brand Krypt. Since 1998, we have been using Krypt bare metal servers for our customers. These servers are the basis of our Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform.
The difference between shared servers and bare metal servers is significant. In the long run, instead of moving from server to server as your business needs grow, your business can remain stable with a bare metal server. It may be more economical in the beginning to use a shared server, but over time, investing in a bare metal server will prove to be a cost-effective investment. By having a dedicated server for your business, you don’t ever have to worry about running out of room. A bare metal server provides the flexibility and scalability that your expanding business needs.
With your own dedicated bare metal server, you can rest assured that your website will stay online, even with heavy internet traffic. You won’t have to deal with the lost time and money that comes from your business website or server crashing. Additionally, you don’t have to be concerned about server space or exceeding bandwidth with your own bare metal server from Krypt. You can easily upload high-resolution photos and videos without having any downtime for your website. No matter the size of the traffic or your files, you can rely on your dedicated server working for your 24/7/365.
If you’re looking for enhanced security features for your server, then the bare metal can meet and exceed your expectations. You’ll be able to encrypt your server, boosting security for your website and files. On a shared server, typically you are assigned only one IP address, leaving the server more prone to cyberattacks. Unlike other providers who offer shared VLAN, which allows for duplicate IP addresses, causing unwanted downtime and other conflicts, a bare metal server from Krypt will be on a private VLAN. This means that your traffic is safely separate. Additionally, Krypt provides a variety of software and hardware-based firewall solutions plus DDoS mitigation services which provide extra layers of protection.
Additional Services for Your Bare Metal Server
Krypt offers a variety of additional services including:
- Complete Root Access—Install any application that you desire.
- A Wide Variety of Processors—Whether you’re looking for low-power or high speed, Krypt has the perfect processor for your server that fits both your business and budgetary needs.
- IPMI Capabilities—Whether you need to reboot or reformat your server, you can securely access it from an administration console.
- My.Krypt’s Full Visibility of Your Server—If you need to look at your bandwidth or other server settings, My.Krypt gives your full visibility. Krypt also offers 5-star technical support.
With all these features and more, your business server needs can all be met through VPLS hosting brand Krypt. To learn more about how we can provide better stability, flexibility, and security for your server, contact us today.

One of the most important support functions necessary for any business is that of disaster recovery, and the replication which is a major component of the recovery process. No one really wants to dwell on all the nasty disaster possibilities which might strike a business, but those unpleasant problems are a fact of life all the same.
And if you don’t have a solid recovery plan in place for when the unthinkable happens, you might find yourself saddled with crippling downtime for far longer than your business can afford it. These days, there are more options available to managers and owners of businesses, which don’t involve long-term contracts or hiring extra personnel to develop and implement your disaster recovery plans.
The age of Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) has arrived, and for many businesses, the DRaaS service featuring Cloud Replication with Zerto offered by VPLS Inc. is simply the most reliable, comprehensive, and cost-effective solution on the market.
Simplified Process, Comprehensive Results
One of the aspects of Zerto replication which makes it so reliable and universal in its application is the fact that much of the complexity of physical replication has been eliminated in favor of virtual replication. In Zerto DRaaS, a hypervisor is established as a virtual machine monitor to run multiple virtual machines as guests, bypassing the need for physical storage replication. The whole recovery process can thus be automated, since storage-to-storage replication is no longer necessary.
There is an incredible amount of flexibility available through this kind of replication scheme – you can literally replicate from any kind of device or platform to any other kind of device. You can even make transfers of data and applications between any types of cloud platforms, such as Hyper-V or VMware, and any kind of hypervisors.
Once hypervisor-based replication has been setup for your business, it can be in operation almost continuously, which means you can recover data from virtually any point in time. With no transaction loss, your business can resume without missing a beat, and you won’t be obliged to make numerous embarrassing apologies to your customers.
The VPLS Difference
When you partner with VPLS for hypervisor-based Cloud Replication service, you’ll also have the convenience of a sandbox environment where all replication processes can be tested out, without interfering with normal daily operations. A key component of having a disaster recovery plan in the first place is testing it out periodically, so that you can be certain it will be effective when it needs to be put into use.
Ideally that day will never come, but in case disaster ever does befall your business, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes from knowing instant failover will kick in, and you’ll have a (near) immediate and seamless transition to backup systems. Because of the efficiency and the simplicity of hypervisor-based DRaaS from VPLS, your business will be able to carry on just as if nothing had happened.
