Default Dedicated servers and CDN from SpaceCDN & InxyHost

Advertisement and CDN

When using the online advertisement solutions speed means a lot. The great percentage of online video and downloadable content can be delivered by means of online advertisement. Also there may be used the separate platform for HTTP streaming content delivery that make use of adaptive technologies in terms of bitrate. Receiving information as quickly as possible means the increase of the income. That is why it is really important to get information in real time, when the updates occur every second. Advertisement networks use these data to increase the revenue over their platforms. Thus CDN can be really helpful for advertising.

The faster the response of CDN is, the more valuable the advertisement is. If you create and allocate your own content, you fully understand the importance of the fast loading of banners, video-content, animation files and other means of advertisement. CDN response time can be decreased by tuning the network individually and using different speed optimization this way the clients will be able to distribute their content much quicker.

Data-centers for owners: risks and costs

The cost of data-center owning and operating is becoming more and more complex. There appear more and more elements that have to be included in such calculation and it becomes more hard. Here’s what has to be taken into account by owners and operators of data-centers:

- The facilities of infrastructure
- Energetic efficiency
- Used hardware
- Cloud technologies (private or public)
- Collocation
- Ability to quickly recover data after disasters
- Migration
- Software
- Scalability and modularity
- Containers
- Costs for network maintenance and work
- Personnel
- Different laws

The main risk and the main concern is the security of data. It is really so, because the customers data is constantly endangered. It is necessary to understand that any third-party service use (collocation or use of cloud technologies) makes the risk of data security higher. The data may be lost and the business therefore damaged. It is necessary to understand that even in case the data is stored in cloud, the providers of the cloud technologies are seldom liable in case of theft, loss or damage of the data.

All of these facts lead to the changes in the industry. There are also other risks that are not connected exactly with user data. They may appear when the provider goes out of business or bankrupt. Then it is necessary to move the data and such movement usually is connected with additional costs in terms of money and time. Sometimes several years may be needed to transfer data.

Thus the model of the data-center ownership is highly connected with risks and many other factors.

CDN: definition, advantages and aims

CDN is the organization of content delivery with the main content present on the original web-server and with numerous POPs where this content is cached.

The main aims of any CDN are known to be the increase of speed, scalability, reliability and availability at any given point of time. Such networks are usually used to make the access to content much easier with minimal costs.

CDN is the system of severs that are strategically positioned across the globe. The client while trying to access needed data is automatically routed to the closest POP.

CDN can boast high performance. The content is cached on the severs across the globe and the decrease of the physical distance to client allows not only to make latency lower but also to lose less packets of data.

Scalability is also known as the advantage of CDN. The off-loading of traffic to CDN allows to adjust its volume easily, to increase or decrease it when needed in a very short time.

Reliability is very important too. The requests are usually sent to the closest location. If the server is unavailable, the next one is chosen.

CDN is also very good in terms of the fact that it does not require too much money to be managed and the reduction of costs can be made rather easily.

Nowadays most of clients need SEO-optimization and that’s why the page load time is very important – it is another factor that is considered when the page rank is calculated. Most search engines have page load time in their formulas.

Push zone or Pull zone?

Every user has a choice to use Push zone or Pull zone. But what is the difference? The push zone allows to load the content directly to CDN, as if you were using a generic hosting account. After it there goes synchronization in all POPs. It is necessary to underline that Push zones are usually ideal for big files.

Pull zone allows to cache static content from the primary server and to deliver it from POPs.
Every CDN can have additional functions. Let us give a more detailed view:

SPDY – the open network protocol. SPDY works with HTTP traffic and the main aim is the reduction of the time load of pages and enhancing the network security.

Secure Token – the special mean of authentification that ensure that URL is available for limited predefined time only.

Hotlink Protection – allows to ensure that files are loaded from predefined websites only.

Dedicated servers versus cloud hosting

More and more enterprises begin to use cloud services, and that’s why it may be very important to compare this method of storage and sharing of data with dedicated servers. Really, what advantages do dedicated servers have?

This question is first of all rising because of demands of business, but if you try to compare the dedicated server to other hosting decisions – for example, shared hosting, you can see that the price for the dedicated server is much higher. However, due to great reliability, power and speed the dedicated server may become a more welcome solution for some clients. In many cases it is the only solution when the business grows. It could have begun from virtual hosting, but at some point, applications and websites could have required much more space and power.

That’s why the first moment that should be taken into consideration when choosing between dedicated server and cloud service are the requirements to the server itself. Of course you can get scalability, flexibility and reliability from cloud service too, but even nowadays many companies prefer dedicated servers because they can be configured more precisely, can be isolated. Also dedicated servers are more reliable when we speak about the storage of some critical data.

Because of such flexibility the precise tuning is required – this is needed to get the desired result. It concerns everything – from infrastructure to software and hardware configurations. When choosing the dedicated server you should think about the following:

- The hardware: how much RAM, CPU and disk space is needed to meet all the client requirements. Also here one should think about needed applications and traffic and many more things:
- The security of server: many companies prefer to fine-tune and maintain dedicated server by themselves. It should be necessary to ensure that the company will be able to regularly update server with the latest patches and security updates for software to work smooth with operating system and BIOS.
- The redundancy of network: to get maximum reliability and flexibility it is necessary for the network to be enough for covering all needs, especially in times of some problems or errors
- Data-center: is a very important thing to learn, but not too much spoken about. Here we speak about the physical location where server is installed. It is necessary to make sure that it is optimized to maintain the server, has needed cooling, ventilation, security and all needed instruments for monitoring.

Why use CDN?

CDN works in such way to provide additional points from which users may download resources, usually static such as images or JavaScript objects. Such points may be geographically positioned all over the world and may be closer to users. This reduces the load times.

CDN is good for virtually any project and will help to increase speed but not all projects need such service. It is necessary to understand how CDN works and whether the additional costs are worthwhile.

In general CDN is a system of servers geographically spread all over the world. Every such server caches images, JS/CSS files and other structural components. Most of response time usually goes to downloading such content and that’s why caching it is always good in as many POPs as possible.

When the user addresses your website, the statical content is provided with POP that is closer to him, that reduces latency and makes the site load more quickly.

Thus the main reason for CDN use in speed increase – this interests any user. Let us see the example. Imagine the website that is hosted in a certain region and the users that want to access that site, but are located in a far away region. In case the website is located in the Northern America, and the users in Europe, the response speed for them will not be that high in comparison to the users from North America.

Global CDN service will help users from Europe to load static content from closer POPs. This will reduce load times. It is necessary to say that not only CDN helps to increase speed, it also helps to prevent the crash in case of high traffic loads. CDN allows to distribute this load across multiple servers.

Does the dedicated server help website to work quicker?

It is a very interesting question. Let us understand from the very beginning that the speed of website is a very important thing, and not only for SEO or ranking, but for people who want to attend your resource. Generally, 40% of users will exit the website that fails to load in 3 seconds. Slow loading website means that many irritated users will not want to come back to it anymore and this may be destructive. Over long distance it will mean a lot.

Is there a change when you switch from shared hosting to dedicated server? Positive. There is a big difference and you will never want to come back. Let us see it this way – if you choose shared hosting, you pay for the space on the server where there are many other websites that use the same processor, bandwidth, hard drive and so on. The owner of the machine makes everything to keep that projects up and running but there are constant limitations.

Thus we may conclude that if the load of site influences the willing of users to come to the website, the project that is landed on the dedicated server will have advantage over the project landed on shared hosting.

CDN – the system for fast content delivery

CDN is the system that allows to quickly distribute the files from geographically spread sources that may exist in different locations. CDN widely uses caching and the use of advanced technologies of search and indexing, as well as synchronization between different POPs. By reducing latency and giving the opportunity to spread the localized cache quickly, the time of content delivery may be reduced greatly. So when should one use CDN?

If you are streaming something or have a big amount of international traffic as well as the need to control the level of caching, you should pay attention to CDN – such distribution network may become a good solution for your content distribution and for its delivery to end user. You should understand that first of all CDN will be of great value for your business – all resources on your company’s website will be available to your clients with minimal latency and your business will look strong for your potential customers.

Using CDN for quicker website loading

When we speak about the speed of page loading it is necessary to say that the distance from server to user influences it a lot. If you choose to share your content among several servers that are geographically spread, it will make your website loading time quicker from the user point of view. So, what to begin with?

First of all, when trying to build a system of geographically spread content, don’t try to change the architecture of your applications to work with certain architecture. Depending on application the change in architecture may lead to complex changes, such as the synchronization of the sessions’ state or replication of transactions of the databases between the geographically spread server. If you do this you may ruin all your attempts of reducing the distance between servers and users.

You have to remember that 80 and 90 per cent of time that the pages take to fully load goes to loading of its components – pictures, CSS, scripts, flash content and so on. It is the golden rule of performance. So don’t change the architecture of your application – use your time to share the static content. It will allow to make page loading time quicker and it can be achieved with the use of CDN.

So, we may refer to CDN as to the network of numerous web-servers that are geographically spread in order to achieve the maximal possible speed of content delivery. The server that is automatically chosen to deliver content to the certain user, is chosen according to several attributes. For example, usually the server with the least number of hops is chosen or the server with the smallest response time.

Some big internet-companies own their own CDNs, but it is much cheaper to use the existing solutions, such as, for example, SpaceCDN. For startups and personal websites the costs may be too big, but when your audience will begin to grow it may also become more distant geographically. CDN is necessary to achieve faster response times – you can get 20% performance increase and even more. CDN requires minimal changes in code but will bring great productivity to your web-applications.

How reliable is a good data-center

First of all, when we speak about data-center and its reliability, you should think about who has access to it and how this access is granted. Intrusion is one of the simplest ways to harm data in data-center. Good data-center is monitored and supervised 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. There should be different scanning and checking systems that will help to ensure that only authorized people can have access to data-center. Technically it may be done by using the electronic ID passes that will be configured individually for every person for whom access is granted. For separate parts of data-center where the most sensitive information is stored, there should be enhanced security – for access here there is a need to have biometric data scanned.

The access to data itself should be under total control – good data-center is able to successfully deal with the attacks of different hackers. Usually data-center is equipped with good systems that are able to detect intrusions, suspicious activities and so on. Firewalls created by different organizations are usually used to protect already stored data, and incoming traffic is monitored thoroughly.

All data and backups are transmitted to and from client either with encryption or with use of high-security cables.

Power supply is very important. Usually data-center, if the main power supply fails, activates special batteries that may help with power supply for 15 minutes. This time is usually enough to start diesel generators that will be able to provide data-center with energy for much longer time.

Many people want to know what will happen to data if the hardware in data-center fails? The data is still fully secure. The fact is that all virtual and dedicated servers, databases, storage devices are united into network. If one particular component fails, the transaction may be done with the use of another component and system stability therefore remains intact. If the hardware fails due to the fire, the data may always be restored from previously made backups.

So how data-center takes fire precaution measures? First of all it is always a good idea to divide the building into several sections that have their own protection from fire. All data-center rooms have a lot of fire detectors and different monitors that check for special gas and the state of the room and are usually able to tell the managers about the problems in advance. In case the fire still happens, the room is automatically filled with special gas that deals with fire. No water should be used because of the sensitive electronics. Water is used as the last resort measure.

Data-center building should be built solid and properly – it should be reliable, with thick walls. The building should deal with storms well.

Privacy of data is very important, as well as backups. Backups are usually done by using disk-to-disk method – this gives the opportunity to quickly make and quickly restore data. Full backups should be made daily and intermediate – several times a day. Later they are archived for security purposes.

The advantages of dedicated server for business

The use of dedicated server for landing your own projects and websites may seem rather expensive, but in the end the result is worthwhile. The shared hosting, it doesn’t matter how well organized and managed, cannot be 100 per cent reliable. However, if you use dedicated server it gives opportunities to avoid many problems that users of shared hosting experience – here we can name overload, bad code and scripts from other users, especially beginners, big amount of loaded applications that are not useful for your project but are used by others. On the contrary, using the dedicated server you will be able to install software that you need.

Dedicated server reduces dependence on hosting and reduces page load times. While using dedicated servers you will be able to give your clients full-time support when it is needed, and it is natural that you won’t be able to do the same while using the shared hosting. Everybody understands that good support is vital for growth of your business and creation of the image of stability and reliability. Rumors have great influence.

For people who work with clients, such as web-designers or graphic designers, the dedicated server is vital for their job. It will allow studio to get more income in the end. If you have constant access to your server that may be tuned according to your needs and updated as soon as possible, it will allow to gather more income and not to share it with anybody else.

The advantages of dedicated server are fully visible if we refer to statistics of how many clients are lost because your website is down or how many clients closed your page just because it took too much time to load it. Some of these people could give good income to you in future and you may be sure that the losses are comparable to the cost of the dedicated server.

For any business the website that has fast load times and is working properly is the indicator of the reliability and stability of your service – you will be able to sell more products. Also you will benefit from creation of good image of your company and from the increase of the base of your clients – the glad users will recommend you to others. Think of it as of greater benefits from less promotions.

If your projects are important to you, think about using dedicated servers.

Types of hosting and their difference

Nowadays there are three main types of hosting that may be chosen according to the load of your project. Here we will speak about all three types of hosting that may be chosen depending on your needs:

v1. Shared hosting - realize that your website will be present on the host alongside with many other projects of other users, sharing physical resources of machine with them. This website is good for personal sites and blogs as well as low-traffic projects.

2. Virtual dedicated server - such hosting can be understood as the separate machine that is divided into several virtual servers that are used for hosting purposes. Users have full access for the installation of new apps or their configuration. This option is good for small and medium business.

3. Dedicated server - the separate machine that is used for one client and project. All the resources are used for one client only and this gives the maximal productivity. If you plan big traffic income it will be a great solution for you.
