With so many options available for dedicated and managed hosting, it can be tough to make a decision on which offering to go with. However, with simple comparisons, interested parties will find dedicated and managed hosting services that can cater directly to their needs.
When choosing a hosting option, clients may choose to share a server with other clients - protected by a firewall - or they might choose to take a dedicated server, providing the utmost security. A dedicated server will allow you and your organisation sole access to your server, leaving you in control of your server's security, content and use.
This can particularly benefit companies who need top speeds or have high traffic volumes on their dedicated servers. However, those employing a dedicated server should be sure they maintain a staff that is knowledgeable when it comes to hosting administration.
Managed hosting takes the dedicated server concept one step further: whereas dedicated servers operate with little service from the hosting provider, managed hosting will empower your business with a range of offerings from the host. In this case, our managed hosting services mean Rackspace can help you with administration, maintenance, storage and backing up your data.
This hosting solution is ideal for those who wish to place less emphasis on in-house support for their dedicated servers. It is also a very flexible hosting solution, as clients retain a great deal of control, but will be backed by expert IT staff and the fanatical support of Rackspace.
