Hardware Monitoring to Reduce Server Downtime

Hardware Monitoring to Reduce Server Downtime

CorelloHosting introduces pro-active hardware monitoring that will prevent the loss of three things vital to a business: data, revenue, and reputation.

The hardware monitoring is available for all dedicated servers in CorelloHosting’s data centers. It will significantly reduce downtime caused by dedicated server hardware issues. The time between when a dedicated server begins to malfunction and when it’s detected is critical. CorelloHositng’s hardware monitor inspects the servers in its data centers for issues with the following: hard drives, SSDs, motherboards, network adapters, optimal system temperature and other abnormal system behavior.

It is a pro-active measure for CorelloHosting’s customers, which works by scanning through all IPMI logs and sensors to detect unusual hardware-related activity.

“We are happy to add another feature to our lineup,” said Donald Shaw, President of Datacenter Operations “This one will protect our vital infrastructure, and that of our dedicated hosting customers.”

Server hardware monitoring complements CorelloHosting’s other protective features, including our free DDoS protection and the network vulnerabilities scanner.

Key Differences Between Shared Hosting and Dedicated Hosting

Key Differences Between Shared Hosting and Dedicated Hosting

When business owners plan to launch or upgrade their e-commerce site, they will often be presented with the issue of choosing dedicated or shared hosting. There are key differences between shared hosting and dedicated hosting so it is important to do the research before making a choice. Below is a guide on the key differences between shared hosting and dedicated hosting:

Sites Hosted on the Server: With a shared hosting package, there are other sites that are hosted on the server along with your website. A dedicated hosting plan means that your website is the only site hosted on the server.

Bandwidth or Disk Space: With shared hosting, the amount of disk space and bandwidth you are allotted is limited because there are others sharing the server. You will be charged if you surpass your allotted amount. With dedicated hosting, bandwidth and disk space are dedicated to you only so there is no sharing and no limitations on the amount of space available space.

Costs: With shared hosting, server resources are shared among several users, so operating costs are divided up among the users making it cheaper. Because a dedicated server is dedicated solely to one user, it cost more.

Required Technical Skills: With shared hosting, you will not require any technical skills as maintenance and security are managed by the shared hosting provider. With a dedicated server, you will need webmaster skills to set up, administer, and manage the server. However, fully managed dedicated hosting plans are available which will be more expensive.

Security: With shared hosting, the hosting company installs firewalls and server security applications and programs. Securing a dedicated server will be your responsibility. You will be able to control the security programs you install and because you are the only one on the server there are fewer chances of acquiring viruses, malware, and spyware. There is a higher risk with shared hosting because of others using the same server.

Blacklisting Of Website: In a shared server, there is more of a risk of being blacklisted by search engines because someone else on the server engaging in such practices as spamming may get the entire IP address blacklisted. On a dedicated server, you will not get blacklisted unless you engage in unethical internet practices.

Server Performance and Response Time: On shared hosting, with other sharing the same resources, allot of traffic can be generated which could drain resources such as bandwidth which could lead to slow response time and slow loading time. This does not happen on a dedicated server because you are not sharing resources.

Level of Control: A dedicated server offers more control over the server as they can add their preferred programs, applications, and scripts. You will have improved flexibility and security which is very beneficial.

The hosting type that you choose will depend on your budget, server and website needs, and the amount control that you desire. No matter which type of server hosting you choose, it is important to make an informed decision.

CorelloHosting Hurricane Irma Special Weather Statement

CorelloHosting Hurricane Irma Special Weather Statement

CorelloHosting & CorelloNetworks Cable and Broadband is currently monitoring Hurricane Irma, and we are beginning preparations in order to minimize service disruptions to our customers in the event that this storm affects our service areas. Irma is forecasted to impact the continental United States in south Florida late this weekend, however, the exact track is very likely to change so we will continue to prepare in all our Southeast, and mid-Atlantic Datacenters, and closely monitor this dangerous storm. We are taking the following steps to minimize any potential service interruptions:

  1. Portable and backup generators are being secured in coastal areas, and being topped off with fuel supplies.
  2. Fuel, clean up equipment, and restoration supplies are beginning to be stockpiled.
  3. Additional field resources are on standby to conduct post-storm damage assessments and quickly begin restoration activities.
  4. Critical systems and infrastructure are being secured to withstand potential water and hurricane force wind damage in flood prone areas.

Customers can find important information and tips to prepare for a major storm by visiting the NOAA.gov website, by clicking here.

What to expect following a major storm: 

In the event of a power outage or damage to our cable lines, high-speed data, video, and phone service may be interrupted. Immediately following the storm, we will have resources that will assess all of our cable lines, and begin work to restore services as quickly as possible.

Please note that following the storm, there may be instances where CorelloNetworks Cable & Broadband cable systems are functioning, however, customers could be without service due to commercial power outages. Please check with your local power company for electrical outages.

Customers should never attempt to climb poles or attempt repairs of downed cable lines as they risk severe injury or death, particularly since our cable lines often accompany electrical lines which carry high voltage. 

To contact us with additional questions, check outage status, or to report a downed line, customers can visit our website, download our CorelloConnect Mobile Care application from the Apple or Google Play Store, or call us via normal customer service numbers or via the emergency numbers provided within the Connect Mobile Care App

We will continue to provide periodic updates over the next few days, and our thoughts are with the communities that may be impacted by this storm.

Dedicated Server / Co-Location / VOIP/ VPS Servers / & Shared Hosting Customers

As you may have heard, Hurricane Irma is currently on track to affect Florida this weekend. As with all storms, CorelloHosting, Inc. has been working diligently to prepare ourselves for the heavy rains and the wind that a storm of this size entails.

Due to this ongoing situation, please request non-critical updates and report current issues before 9/9/17 or after 9/12/17. During this time, if you believe your server is inaccessible, read up on how our IPMI service may be able to help.

We will be staffed and available during the storm to handle any potential issues that arise, and have tested and verified all of our emergency infrastructures to ensure all services remain up and available. We have also made the requisite staffing changes to ensure that our support remains uninterrupted and available for all clients.

Depending on the severity of the storm, we may disable our phone systems to focus our support staff on tickets and live chats, but if we do so, such a change would be posted on all of our social media accounts, and a recording stating the reason placed on the phone system itself. In addition, while we will have staff available during the storm, priority will be placed on existing service requests and procedures, and any new orders/modifications may be delayed until after the storm has passed.

 

Miami Data Center Physical Infrastructure

CorelloHosting’s Miami enterprise data center CoreX-NOC features a building-within-a-building data center design which was created with Florida’s unique climate conditions in mind. The windowless, single-story building features concrete masonry perimeter walls powerful enough to withstand practically any storm. Both this data center and our local sales & management office will remain manned 24/7.

Two diesel generators, 500KW Caterpillar and 1250KW Katolight, are also on location in the unlikely event of complete power loss. These impressive generators hold up to 2700 gallons of diesel fuel so your server will stay online regardless.

Power Infrastructure Includes:

  • 1 X 500KW Caterpillar Diesel Generator
  • 1 X 1250KW Katolight Diesel Generator
  • 1 X 500KVA Powerware 9315 UPS
  • 1 X 480KVA Powerware 9390 UPS in a parallel N+1 configuration
  • 5 X Battery Strings (providing 15 minutes of runtime at full load)
  • 2,700 Gallons of fuel capacity for generators

We thank you for your patience and understanding during this weather event and hope that you have a great rest of your week.

Sincerely,
CorelloNetworks Customer Service

Why the Location of Your Dedicated Server’s Data Network Matters

Why the Location of Your Dedicated Server’s Data Network Matters

When you’re shopping around for hosting—whether it’s a website, blog, eCommerce store, or even for gaming—there’s no denying the fact that speed matters. However, what many people fail to realize as they shop for a dedicated server is that the specific location of the hosting company’s data centers can have a direct impact on their server speed. At CorelloHosting, we have eleven prime data center locations in

  •  Philadelphia, PA
  •  New York, NY
  •  Miami, FL
  •  Los Angeles, CA
  •  Chicago, IL
  •  Phoenix, AZ
  •  Atlanta, GA
  •  Washington, DC
  •  Singapore, Asia
  •  Tokyo, Japan
  •  London, United Kingdom

this allows us to provide low latency to several locations worldwide and a better overall experience, no matter what you’re using our hosting for.

Understanding Location and Latency

So how does location affect latency, and what, exactly, does latency have to do with speed? For starters, latency essentially refers to the amount of lag time that takes place between when you initiate a request for data transfer and when the transfer actually occurs. For example, this is the amount of time that it takes between when you click on a link on your website and when the linked page actually loads. In the time in between, the request is being transferred to the data center at which your dedicated server is hosted.

The farther away your data center is from where your users are located, the higher the latency you’re likely to have. Lower latency will result in faster processing times, which can mean a number of things depending on how you’re using your hosting. For example, if you’re using your dedicated hosting for gaming, low latency will mean less lagging, faster overall game play, and better performance. For website owners, lower latency means users will have an easier time navigating your site. They won’t be frustrated with slow page loading times, which will make them more likely to revisit your site in the future or less likely to leave during their initial visit.

As you can see, low latency is important and the best way to ensure low latency (aside from choosing a great hosting company) is to make sure your data centers are centrally located.

CorelloHosting’s Prime Data Center Locations

At CorelloHosting, we have three excellent data center locations in

  •  Philadelphia, PA
  •  New York, NY
  •  Miami, FL
  •  Los Angeles, CA
  •  Chicago, IL
  •  Phoenix, AZ
  •  Atlanta, GA
  •  Washington, DC
  •  Singapore, Asia
  •  Tokyo, Japan
  •  London, United Kingdom

These are prime locations for both local (North America) and global users (South America, Asia, and Pacific). Not to mention, our data centers have a number of other features that can help to increase speeds and benefit you and your users. This includes 100% uptime service level agreements for cooling and power, enhanced security at each data center location (including round-the-clock security), and climate control redundancies. We are also proud to include the best technical support 24 hours a day, seven days a week to our customers with hosting in either location.

If there was ever any question as to the importance of location when it comes to your hosting data center, hopefully, that has been cleared up here. To find out more about our data center locations or for help in selecting the dedicated server that is right for you, contact CorelloHosting today.
