Dedicated is a service of renting a physical dedicated server in the data center of a hosting company. This is a great alternative in case of the needs stated earlier. You will be able to configure the server for your own needs and not worry about providing the necessary conditions for uninterrupted operation of the equipment, professional technical support and reliable security system.
What is a dedicated server?
When choosing a dedicated server service, you get access, of course, only for the rental period, your own dedicated server, ready to work. You have full access to all resources, you can configure the dedicated server for your own needs.
The rented server is placed in a separate cabinet of the data center and ensures its uninterrupted operation. Technical staff maintain the necessary ecosystem in the data center, provide uninterrupted power supply and a reliable security system. If the user detects server malfunctions, you need to contact technical support and report that there are malfunctions, in which case we will replace the server as soon as possible. If a configuration change is required during the lease, this service is also provided upon request and subject to technical capabilities, or we can always offer another server with the necessary technical parameters.
It is worth noting that server rental involves its independent configuration and administration, so it is suitable for users with similar skills or companies with a team of system administrators. If you do not have such an opportunity, Adamant technical specialists can do it for you (paid separately).
Dedicated server vs VPS — what to choose?
Users often face the problem of choosing between dedicated server and VPS. Therefore, let’s see what is the difference between these services.
Firstly, the difference is in the cost — VPS is much cheaper, because by choosing VPS, you rent only part of the server. That is, the provider having one server, divided into several separate virtual machines, can rent them simultaneously to different users. Instead, the dedicated service provides rental of a full-fledged server, you will not need to share space and capacity with «neighbors», the server will be only under your control. Also, a special difference is that by renting a server, you have more opportunities to customize the characteristics that are not available for the VPS service.
So, if you have a large project that requires a lot of power of digital machines, we recommend choosing a dedicated server. If you need to host a small project and can’t afford to rent a whole server, or you need to rent for a short period of time — in this case, we recommend you to pay attention to the VPS service from Adamant.
