We’re proud to announce that ServerMania has two huge new additions to our hardware portfolio – Intel’s revolutionary Xeon Scalable Processors. Available immediately to our dedicated hosting clients, the Intel Xeon Silver 4114 and Xeon Gold 5118 will replace the Dual E5-2630v4 and Dual E52650v4. Let’s talk a bit about what this means – and how you might leverage our new tech for your own business.Read More
Linux vs. Windows Server? — A question that has been debated endlessly by system administrators and server hosting clients since the dawn of the web. We’re clear where we stand: for most purposes, Linux is the right choice. Windows Server is a secure, flexible, and powerful server operating system, but our heart is with Linux.
The ServerMania team has worked with Linux since the company was founded in 2002. We have proudly watched as thousands of our clients have built successful businesses on our Linux-based server hosting. Our dedicated server, cloud server, and hybrid server plans run on a variety of Linux distributions, including CentOS, Debian, Fedora, and Ubuntu (as well as Windows Server 2008).
Traditionally, business owners have preferred to hire employees to do work for their company in-house. That way, they can oversee the process to ensure the quality of the work is up to par.
But business owners aren’t experts at everything. They don’t always know the severity of a problem when it arises and rarely do they know how to fix it themselves. This is especially true when it comes to their own website. Most owners have no idea what type of expertise is needed or how to eliminate problems before they become an issue.
According to the latest analysis, 89% of adult Americans regularly connect to the internet. The internet is an important tool in the daily lives of people young and old.
As an internet user, you expect to have access to an open and free internet.
The basis of an open and free internet is the concept of net neutrality. This is the principle that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) must give users equal access to all legal content and applications and cannot favour certain content or services over another.
It’s easy to talk about the benefits of using a cloud platform rather than in-house or colocated hardware. In 2017, few would question those benefits. But it can be challenging to see a path from a company’s current infrastructure to the cloud. Moving complex and critical legacy applications is a big step, and without executive buy-in, it’s difficult to get the ball rolling.
Traditionally, phishing attacks have targeted consumers with random spam in the hope that that some small proportion of the targets are naive enough to install malicious software or hand over login details.Read More
Choosing the right hosting option for your project is important. It will help ensure you have a positive experience and only pay for the infrastructure you really need.
But finding exactly the right hosting isn’t easy. There’s an almost infinite variety of options, but many of those options have more to do with marketing than the technical attributes of the platform.
Twenty-five years ago this month, Linus Torvalds posted a message to the comp.os.minix newsgroup asking for ideas for a new project he’d been working on. The project — “just a hobby, won’t be big and professional like gnu” — was an operating system. At the time, it was unnamed, but, as I’m sure you all know, over the next quarter of a century, Linux popularized a new way of thinking about software development and became the seed that allowed thousands of businesses to flourish.
ServerMania is happy to introduce a brand new range of enterprise-grade servers that combine the convenience of a virtualized environment with the power of bare metal.
Hybrid Servers offer server users the flexibility they’ve come to expect from virtualized environments — rapid deployment and one-click OS reloads — without compromising on performance.
Hybrid Servers are currently available in our Los Angeles, Dallas, Montreal, and Amsterdam data centers.
At Server Mania, we’re extremely proud of our Support Fleet. So proud, we don’t call them a Support Team, Support Department, or even a Support Crew. You have to be extremely effective at your job to be called a Fleet.
