A private virtual server, also called VPS (Virtual Private Server) is a software-based server that offers computing and storage capabilities such as a service to an organization. Instead of acquiring a physical server (hardware), a virtual server is rented.
In a virtual server, the software and business data belonging to the customer are stored on physical servers in the supplier's data center, to which customers can access through Remote Access services (Terminal Services), SSH and, Web Browsers, among other issues.
Using these services, enterprises should not make substantial investments to start their operation, as it would be if they buy their own servers, neither they require staff dedicated to server's configuration and monitoring.
Enterprises benefit with a virtual server because they must not keep obsolete hardware, or buy extra hardware that they will only require it for a specific period of time. By hiring a virtual server, customers will only pay for storage, memory and process they use; besides, capacity can be increased as needed. Your VPS virtual server can use Linux or Windows, all implemented with Citrix XenServervirtualization platform.
You can hire a windows server 2008 based virtual server; install Internet Information Services (IIS) and any compatible application. VPS LinuxTM Virtual Server. Taking into account our customers' diverse needs, we also have VPS Virtual Servers based on different Linux distributions such as: CentOS, Fedora, OpenSUSE, or any other distribution of their choice.
In BTU Cloud, we have our main datacenter in Mexico which is equipped according to the highest standards concerning quality, performance, connectivity and hardware to render uninterrupted services to virtual servers (VPS) that we are hosting.
Our Data Center exceeds International standards in all areas.
Physical servers in our BTU Cloud datacenter are Dell hardware of the latest generation, being periodically updated their capacities to ensure that your virtual server always offers the best performance. Our virtualization infrastructure is being backed by XenServer products of Citrix.
Each server is powered by 2 electrical circuits (A + B). By doing so, a power sources redundancy for physical servers is created and, thus, for your virtual server. Therefore, if any of the power sources fails, your virtual server stays powered by other power source.
Even more, each circuit is equipped with battery backup systems APC UPS (Uninterruptible power supplies). This means that, in case of power failure, the equipment never notice a change or switching since energy is always being supplied by the batteries and this reduces probability of failure on servers, hard disks or telecommunications equipment.
We have a Diesel generator or power plant which can supply continuous electrical power in case of an extended power failure.
of an extended power failure. All equipment and devices for backup power are regularly tested by a specialized maintenance team, so that appropriate actions to solve an issue can be taken, if necessary.
Our network architecture has been designed by certified engineers by cisco, making use of leading products for network switching and routing.
10GB wiring was employed, therefore ensuring a 15-20 year technological life period.
The false floor with 60cms chamber, allows us the installation and coexistence of different technologies used such as: fire protection systems, 10 GB data cabling, electrical wiring and physical ground, air conditioning installation as well as chamber with full cold air flow which is expelled through drilled vents through cold aisles.
There are three ground subsystems that include lightning rods, ground connection and ground data; each solution interconnects itself at the end, ensuring zero potential difference at any grounded connection of the data center.
We have several internet CARRIER type suppliers which reach our facilities by various means (optical fiber and microwave). By having suppliers in Mexico, we improve our response times from any access point in the country.
Our data center is equipped with smoke detection and firefighting systems. As soon as smoke is detected, the alarm triggers and gas is dispersed in the data center. This gas (fm200) stops combustion and leaves no residue.
Our redundant air conditioning systems maintain a 20 degree average temperature and a 50% relative humidity. They are intercommunicated with each other so that if one fails, the other turns on and maintains the room's appropriate temperature and humidity.
Conditioning is optimized using the principle of "cold aisle/hot aisle", where warm air and cold air are mixed as little as possible.
Access to the Data Center is biometric to prevent unauthorized persons from entering our facilities.
Our perimeter walls and doors are armored with ballistic, thermal and acoustic protection.
