How To Best Utilise A Dedicated Server With Cloud Server Management Software – 5 Simple Tips!

Server Images
By using the snapshot feature of the cloud manager, you can take a snapshot image of your live server and use that image to create a server for testing your software updated. As a test server you’ll only need to allocate the bare minimum resources.

Software Version Difference
If you have servers that are running legacy applications or older versions of software and do not want to update them, you can create a virtual server image with a small amount of resources.

Segregation Of Environments
Some clients insist on their own environment for security reasons, or have needs that cannot be actioned across the board. By creating their own virtual server image, you can satisfy their requirements without compromising the other clients.

Control Of Resources
The cloud server management software allows you to control the resources available to each virtual server via a web based control panel. This isn’t dynamic on the free versions but does allow you to manage the resources of your virtual server images.

Easy Migrations
When you want to migrate a virtual server image to a new more powerful dedicated server it is just a case of shutting down the server, right-clicking on the image and allocating it to the new dedicated server. Away it goes – no more copying of files. However, you do need a central file server for doing this.
