High-End Dedicated Server Choices Of 2017

High-end dedicated server is probably the most suitable hosting solution for the complex websites and mission-critical applications which demand higher resources. These high performance hosting solutions ensure that your website performance is smoother and your website visitors get the best user experience.

The websites having several million visitors simply cannot be hosted on VPS or an entry level dedicated server. That’s where high-end servers come into play.

What Is A High-End Dedicated Server?

As we know that a typical dedicated server is a powerful computer, connected to a high-speed Internet connection and housed in a state-of-the-art data center facility.

A high-end dedicated server is an advanced system, equipped with the powerful CPUs, bigger RAM modules, RAID disks and backups. It features larger computing capacity, specially designed to achieve maximum performance and to cater enterprise workloads.

High-End Dedicated Servers Configuration

High-end dedicated servers are typically used to host high-traffic websites, web applications, and for other hosting scenarios where performance is paramount. A typical high-end dedicated server will consist of the following:

  • Single/Dual latest Intel Xeon E3 or E5 series processors.
  • 64 GB to 512 GB RAM.
  • 8 to 24 TB SATA II HDD with RAID 10.
  • Redundant power supply & cooling units.
  • Daily backups.

Above is just a sample configuration which can be customized/upgraded per unique requirements.

High-End Dedicated Server Use Cases

So far we’re aware of what a high-end dedicated server is and its basic configuration. Now, let’s take a look at how they’re used.

Hosting HyperVisors

Setting up a HyperVisor server and hosting smaller virtual machines on it, could be the most popular use of high-end servers. Typically hosting providers use these high-end servers to host a number of virtual machines and sell to their customers. In some cases, businesses also rent a big dedicated server to create a small virtual machines to use them internally.

Hosting High-Traffic Websites

To host a website that attracts thousands of concurrent requests (like an eCommerce store) is resource intensive, and many webmasters choose to “scale up” to a more powerful server, rather “scaling out” across many less powerful servers. Choosing a single high-end dedicated server is less complex to manage than building out a cluster of smaller servers.

Building A Web Server To Host Multiple Websites

Mostly web hosting companies and web service providers build their products on high-end servers. A moderately configured high-end server is capable of hosting hundreds or even thousands of smaller sites.

Building A Private Cloud

Both private and public cloud platforms are built on high-end dedicated servers, but many organizations prefer their own cloud to host their proprietary applications. In such case, many organizations choose to rent a dedicated server on which to run their own private clouds, virtual machines and other hosting services.
