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.

Improved Reliability

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.

Stronger Security

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.

Zerto Cloud Replication

Share Button

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.

WannaCry Ransomware Webcast

Share Button

As you’ve likely heard, WannaCry is a new ransomware variant that takes advantage of a vulnerability in the Windows operating system (MS17-010) to encrypt the infected computer’s data and hold it hostage until a ransom is paid. In addition, the vulnerability enables WannaCry to quickly spread to other machines in the same environment – all without any human intervention. While Microsoft issued a patched to the vulnerability in March 2017, millions of computers have not been updated and remain susceptible to the attack.

Join our partner, AlienVault, for a technical webcast to learn more about WannaCry, and how the unified security controls in AlienVault USM Anywhere can help you quickly identify vulnerable systems and attacks.

You’ll learn:

  • What the AlienVault Labs security research team has uncovered about this threat
  • How to scan your environment (cloud and on-premises) for the vulnerability with USM Anywhere
  • How USM Anywhere leverages threat intelligence for early detection of threats like WannaCry
  • How built-in response orchestration capabilities in USM Anywhere can stop the threat from spreading
