[TOP] 3 things to before purchasing Server Vietnam

June 28, 2018

There are several advantages of the dedicated server vietnam and they are applicable for all kinds of individual customers as well as business.

This’s why it’s so vital that you take note of these advantages and then decide on a course of action. 3 things below will help people to decide on the right hosting vendor and hardware configuration of a physical server.

1. Business impact of Uptime/Downtime

One of the first things to consider when purchasing a dedicated server is how to deal with potential Uptime/Downtime. In a cloud environment, the set-up of the cloud protects you against hardware failures. With a physical server, you know you are not sharing resources with anyone else. Actually, there’s usually a point of failure in a server, so you need to decide if you can accept potential downtime, in case you have no choice to scale to multi-dedicated servers.

There’s nothing more vital than having a 24/7 operating hosting. Finally, users can visit your website anytime and anywhere. Therefore, you need a stable hosting, both in Vietnam dedicated server and network connections. 99.95% uptime commitment is considered a norm these days, even for shared hosting accounts. Anything below 99% is unacceptable. Premium accounts usually boast of 99.99% or better uptime.

Tips: You can track your hosting with server monitoring tools. Many of them are available either for free, or at the very least offer a trial period. They are efficient and so easy to use: Uptime Robot, StatusCake, UpTimeDoctor, UpDown.io…

2. Scalability of your app

Scalability is another vital issue when selecting a dedicated server. If it is easy for you to scale, it does not matter whether you use a physical server or a virtual solution. However, there are actually some difficult apps to scale to multi-devices. Ensuring a database is operating on multi-servers is really a challenge as it needs to be synchronized through all database servers. It may be easier to move the database to a server that has more processing capacity, RAM and storage. Moving to a cloud server Vietnam environment could also be a good option for you. A forecast from Cisco predicts that by 2020, 92% of workloads will be processed by cloud data centers. However, that does not mean it is necessarily the right option for your company.

In the future, if your website grows really big, you should consider choose a hosting with room to grow. This can be upgrades from hosting to a VPS or dedicated server for greater processing power, disk storage, memory capacity and even enhanced security features. There’re lots of advantages to having a physical server in your office as well. Being in control of the hardware and the apps you have running on it gives you a higher degree of customizability and you will have 24/7 access in case anything needs reconfiguring.

3. Performance requirements of your server

Performance can be the motivator for going dedicated for two reasons. The app to be hosted has grown to the point that it generates more load than is reasonable on a shared web hosting platform. Alternatively, the nature of the app being hosted is such that performance is critical: under no circumstances can a drop in responsiveness be tolerated, and the budget is available to ensure this is the case. What are your performance requirements? How many users do you expect and how many Vietnam server hosting do you potentially need? Several hardware choices influence server performance:

Hard drives

Choosing a RAID setup for your hard drives will help your server to be protected against the failure of a single hard drive. With this, your system will be up and running until the hard drive is replaced. The SATA drives stand for high volume but relatively low performance. SAS performs 2 times as well as SATA, but has lower capacity and a higher price. SAS has been succeeded by SSD that is 50 ~ 100 times faster than SATA.

RAM

The faster the CPU and the more cores it has, the more RAM options are available to you. If you’re not sure about your RAM requirements, then pick up a server which allows you to add RAM if needed. The ranges of RAM choices are so enormous. The size of your server is vital when selecting RAM, as is the latest technology. Current generation servers use DDR4-technology, which has a positive effect on database performance. Nowadays, DDR4 is priced interestingly, since it is the standard.

Processor/CPU

You can choose the amount of processors and cores in a server. It depends on the app you are running whether you will benefit from more cores. You also need to consider the performance of the core defined in clock speed (MHz): some processors have a better turn-around time with less cores and more GHz per core. The advice on which processor and how many cores to choose come from manager’s application or the vendor of the software.

3. Other factor

Bandwidth usage

Actually, the need of bandwidth relates to the predictability of data traffic. In case you’re going to consume lots of bandwidth but predictability is low, you can pick up a plan with your Vietnam dedicated server hosting that has lots of data traffic included.

Tips: This is an easy way of knowing exactly how much you will be spending on the hosting of your dedicated server.

Load balancing

If your app can scale across multi-dedicated servers, a form of load balancing is necessary. If your site’ traffic is rising, then you may need to use multi-web servers that serve a multitude of users for the same site. A load balancing solution will redirect every incoming request to a different server. Before this process, the load balancer will check if a server is up and running. If downtime happens, it will redirect the traffic to another server.

Remote management

To which degree are you allowed to manage your server yourself? If you are running an app on a physical server, you probably have the technical skills and the knowledge to maintain the server. But do you have access to a remote management module? Most good providers are equipped with remote management modules and they will allow you to secure access to that module.

Network quality

As a client, you can decide where a server Vietnam is placed physically. It’s so vital to consider the location of your end user. For instance, if your customers are in the Asia, hosting in America may not be a sensible choice since data delivery will be slow. Data delivery also depends on the quality of the network of the hosting vendor.

Tips: To find out more about network quality, check a vendor’s Network Operation Center pages and test the network.
