Overview of the Hosting Services of Raidboxes: The most important aspects of the Raidboxes are its reliability, scalability and redundancy. The Raidboxing service provider is responsible for providing quality services and the support required to satisfy every requirement from the client. In fact, the entire concept of Raidboxes came into being as a result of the need for such a kind of service in the market. They provide one standard type of hosting to the client and two specialized models: one specifically for freelancers and agencies and another for large corporations. The Raidvault site gives an insight of the services provided by this brand of service provider.
In a nutshell, the Raidvault service is quite successful. The major benefit of the service provider is its continued commitment to provide the client with the latest versions of its software and plugins. It also adds value by offering additional services and support for its customers. This means that the company has to stay on its toes so that it can keep up with the market and the fast pace at which things change.
The Raidware site manages to review some of the most popular and common plugins available for the Raidbox server. The most popular and widely used ones are the LSM plugin and the MSC plugin. The former reduces the total disk space occupied by the applications, making sure that the whole system is not bogged down. This then increases the overall performance and throughput of the server. The second most used plugin is the Raid Spec disk which is also known as the auto-raid-off disk. It performs the task of auto-raid off disks when needed and also reduces the host overload.
There are some other useful features such as easy access to the Block Exchange and auto discovery of FTP and SFTP servers. This means that the hosting customer will have faster access to files and backup servers and will be able to troubleshoot problems much easier than if he or she uses the standard Windows setup. An inbuilt dashboard makes it easy for administrators to monitor the health of the server and is also a handy way for end-users to access the Block Exchange.
The third feature we look at in this Raidware review is automatic updates. Automatic updates ensure that the most up-to-date patch has been applied. It also fixes security flaws. Most of the major companies do not deploy patch Management Software, opting instead for the server being automatically updated. The problem with this method is that an administrator has to manually select and install the patches. With the RAIDBOXES service, this is made very easy since the system is automatically updated without any special effort required on the part of the user or IT administrator.
The fourth item on the list of features we look at in this Raidware review is the flexibility offered by the product. It supports a wide range of operating systems including Linux, UNIX, Windows 2000, and more. It can be used as a reseller or even a dedicated server and comes with full root access. Another key feature that separates this brand from the rest is the fact that it offers VSA (virtualization support) on its three hard drives.
The last feature we will look at in this Raidware review is its security. One of the primary reasons that many companies are choosing the Google cloud platform to host their applications is the notion of flexibility that they offer. The Raidware software can be easily customized according to the application’s requirements and can add extra security measures as well. This includes adding intrusion detection and prevention mechanisms. It is important to note that this added security is not provided as a stand-alone service but is tied in with the managed hosting service that is provided by the Google cloud platform. This means that if you go for managed hosting, then you will also get added security features such as anti-spyware, intrusion detection and prevention as well as other management functions.
A final Raidware review point to the price as being an important consideration. The Raidware software does cost $100 per month and will not change based on the upgrades that it requires. For many companies, the cost of controlling multiple servers is a very important consideration. However, considering that it is offered by Google and that it is an open source program, this should be taken into consideration. Overall, we find that the Raidware software from Google does offer a good value for money.
