Windows or LinuxThe two popular operating systems for a VPS are Windows or Linux. A lot of people prefer Linux over Windows because of the open-source nature of Linux. Linux becomes a favored choice since it is integrated with a lot of open-source programming languages. Moreover, Windows also happens to be more expensive compared to Linux. However, depending on your situation, Windows may be a better choice for you. The Windows server environment is highly recommended for ASP/ASP.NET development, and for clients that want to make use of an MS SQL database. Another advantage of choosing a Windows operating system is that it requires very little technical knowledge to utilize effectively. If you have technical knowledge, Linux will work for you. However, if you aren’t technically savvy or you are developing in a language supported directly by Windows, you should opt for a Windows operating system. Evidently, there is no one clear choice and it depends on your needs and requirements.
Advantages of Linux vs. WindowsThe Linux operating system is flexible and reliable. Linux VPS servers use fewer resources, which increases website performance and reduces downtime. Additionally, since the Linux platform is open-source, a website owner can change server configurations, perform updates, and install different applications, based on their needs. On the other hand, the Windows operating system provides improved control. Every user is presented with Remote Desktop access, through which a user can control and manage his server anywhere and at any time. Windows VPS servers provide inherent security since they are furnished with professional antivirus software and anti-spy programs, as well as reliable firewalls. When you sign up for your VPS plan with Solar VPS, you get a great suite of VPS tools. We have a powerful control panel in addition to comprehensive technical support tools.

What is Bandwidth and How Does it effect my SolarSystem Cloud VPS?
Normally we use this space to blog about a variety of topics which server as a portal for information and knowledge. We normally use this space to explain Cloud hosting concepts and ideas so you, as the end user, have a greater understanding of the SolarSystem solution you are either currently using or looking into. However, in this blog post, we want to answer a question which was recently posed to us via Yahoo! Answers. The question asked, which comes from the European continent, was:
“I was browsing SolarVPS’s VPS plans, and they allow you to customize. There is an option of 1TB through 8TB bandwidth, and I’m not sure if that’s the speed, and if that’s the limited amount per month that you are allowed to use. Please only answer if your sure, I don’t want any misleading thoughts.”
Due to this, we want to take the time to answer the following questions regarding SolarSystem bandwidth utilization: What is bandwidth in terms of my Linux or Windows Cloud VPS? How much bandwidth can I utilize per month per Cloud VPS? What is our network bandwidth transfer rate? And finally, how much does additional bandwidth cost in the SolarSystem? Continue
