Ongoing Maintenance and Support For Your Servers
Length: 5 Minutes
Beyond the day-to-day operations of your web platforms, the backbone that keeps all of that up and running is your web servers, which is often interchangeably referred to as web hosting. This is why web hosting is such a critical part of the overall performance, security, and functionality of your web platforms. In the year , there are more choices than ever before when it comes to hosting services, but it is important to note that they are definitely some key differences. Today cloud-based servers have given many companies the ability to virtualize their server processes as many major companies have already made the switch years ago from bare metal servers to cloud-based. This is due to many reasons, but the key advantages of cloud-based web hosting is faster speeds and cost efficiency. This is why big companies like Netflix, Dropbox, Airbnb, NASA, and so many other organizations use cloud-based server technologies.
There are many variations of server applications, such as on-premise, Infrastructure as Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS). Each one of these choices comes with various roles and responsibilities that are required to manage and maintain the server environments.
Either way, there is an inherit model of share responsibility that a company and web host have together. In the simplest terms, the hosting company is responsible for the security of the servers, and each business is responsible for the security in the server. The responsibilities of managing the server from a business perspective ranges from properly managing customer data, their platform, applications, identity, operating systems, network, firewall, client-side data encryption, data integrity, authentication, server-side encryption, networking traffic, and several other items.
Some small to medium size organizations sometimes make the mistake in not realizing that their web hosting is not taking care of the all of those tasks in the server. This can be detrimental, since many times this is not even realized until their is a problem. By that point, these mistakes can be costly and sometimes irreversible if backups systems are not properly configured or the server was never properly secured.
Keeping track of the server itself can be very difficult without a dedicated team of systems administrators and server experts to properly manage and maintain the servers. This is why organizations of all sizes opt for professional web hosting management. That way the organizations servers are continuously supported, maintained, patched, and monitored. It is also very common to have professional server management as a part of company's overall DevOps model.
