Solar VPS Can Help You With Data Center Functions

Data is at the forefront of your personal and business IT operations every single day. That means it’s important to have the right systems in place to store, recover, and secure your data 24/7. Since your data is what helps you operate your business, help customers, sell products or services, or even store information received in important emails, your data centers need to also be reliable. Without the reliability of a trusted data center, how would you be able to accomplish anything? Plus, poor data recovery and backup protocol could put your information at risk of malicious activity or unforeseen crisis.

What is Data?

First and foremost, what is data? When we refer to “data,” we are simply referring to any type of information that can be analyzed and stored. Data sets might include facts, statistics, numerical inputs, and values or quantitative or qualitative variables on people, a place of business, or anything else. Data can be formatted in different manners including charts, graphs, tables, or paragraph forms. 

In one sense of the word, “data” is used loosely to mean any type of information but in reality, data is usually something that is going to be analyzed or referenced in the future. That’s why it can be so important to secure data in a data center. 

Data Centers and Their Functions

Now, we turn to where data is stored. Data is secured in buildings, known as data centers, where special space is dedicated to storing information. A data center can be a smaller building or a multi-building complex for larger data storage capabilities. Data centers house computer systems and IT components that help lock down information for users to access and analyze as needed in the future. 

There are many functions associated with a trusted and reliable data center. Data centers need a reliable power supply to operate optimally, as well as backup protocols, recovery systems, environment control, and accurate communication networks. These are all elements that Solar VPS can help you achieve with our durable data center systems today!

Reliable Power Supply

Of course, a data center won’t be of any use if it’s not connected to a continual and accurate power supply. In the case of electricity crashes, generators should be in place to kick in and secure data. However, many IT companies fail to disclose to their clients that their power supply has had issues in the past. Therefore, it’s never wise to invest in a data center that does not have a trusted power supply in place.

Data Backups

If sudden crashes occur, data could be lost forever. Sudden crashes can happen when there’s a faulty connection, extreme weather, or even because of attempted hacks. Malicious activity can be stopped with the right security systems, but that doesn’t always mean your data is safe for good. Without reliable data backups, information is never safe. At Solar VPS, we provide every client with automatic data backup and recovery protocols that secure information 24/7. If something happens, your data is saved in another location to be recovered later as needed. That’s just another aspect of what makes our data centers stand out in the IT market. 

Data Recovery Systems

In tandem with data backups are reliable data recovery systems from Solar VPS. Data recovery systems help you fill in the gaps of lost data after a crash. These systems can restore data that was temporarily inaccessible using reliable software, utilities, and services. In fact, data can be temporarily lost in multiple locations including data centers, your computers, storage devices such as thumb drives, or through the web network connection. As a result, a fast-acting data recovery team from Solar VPS can get to work and keep your information from being lost forever. 

Communication Networks

The networks that fuel your connections to send, analyze, and store data are important. Without communication networks you can trust, you would never be able to send information to data centers for safekeeping. This means all your data would be stored on your personal or business devices, putting it at risk long-term. 

Think of it as writing an important letter to a loved one but not being able to send the letter. In the end, the letter becomes pointless if it can’t be used for its intended purpose – conveying a message. In the case of data storage, it’s the same concept. Data is useless if it can’t be properly stored and accessed as needed. Reliable communication networks are what allow the accurate transfer of data between its original location and a secure data center for storage. 

Environmental Controls

Finally, data center functions like security devices, fire suppression, and air conditioning fall under the broad category of environmental controls. These controls are one of the most important elements of a trusted data center. Without these functions, your data could easily be destroyed in an instant. If a fire were to occur, for instance, your data would be damaged or lost forever without the added support of fire suppression systems. Similarly, air conditioners keep data storage areas at the right temperature for optimal storage. Of course, security devices are critical. They help keep a watchful eye 24/7 against in-person or virtual malicious activity. They can also warn users whose data is stored in certain areas of potential hazards before they become a problem.

The Internet is Broken. The Cloud Is Next.

The Cloud is Next

This time of the year, the web is bombarded with end of the year articles, New Year’s Resolution blogs and this year in retrospective posts. Well, we aren’t going to do that on the basis that those articles are annoying and written to gain clicks. While clicks and traffic are a great thing, as recently noted by Luke O’Neil in Esquire, the Internet model of content distribution and truth, is broken. Mr. O’Neil argues the Internet is broken. We agree. More troubling though than content distribution patterns is the technology keeping our broken Internet running. That is to say, the Cloud.

The Basis for the Cloud

As we have noted in this space, the Cloud isn’t some pie in the sky technology which holds no physical space and/or repercussions. Much to the opposite, the secret of the Cloud is the terminology and marketing behind the Cloud hides the physical resources it takes to keep our instant 24/7/365 access lives running smoothly. The secret of the Cloud are the physical servers, networking gear, power supplies and cooling needs it takes to keep Cloud solutions running around the clock. Those collection of materials end up compromising large scale data centers. For all the talk of how green the Cloud is, anyone who has ever been inside a data center understands going green in the Cloud is a term only provided to the company or customer utilizing Cloud solutions. It is not a term which can be applied to the hosting or data center company which leases within or owns the data center.

The simple truth of the matter is just as our beloved Internet is broken, the Cloud is next. Here’s why.

Moving to the Cloud: Security Tips and Concerns

Data Security in the Cloud is Vital

Of all the questions and concerns we hear on a daily basis from potential and existing customers, none eclipses Cloud security concerns. None. For companies and private consumers looking to make the jump to Cloud solutions, the largest concern which always comes across is the security of Cloud stored data and if a third party Cloud vendor can properly secure said data. But before we even get started, the one thing we have to mention is the threat of hacking. Yes, hacking happens. Yes, your Cloud provider can be hacked and yes, your servers will never be fully 100% safe from external intrusions. That being said, below is a quick guide to what you, the client, should look for in a Cloud provider when it comes to data security concerns.

Know Yourself

Before you can even consider looking into a viable Cloud hosting solution, you need to first look internally at the type of data your company deals Continue
