It’s not hard for most of us to remember the good old days of dial up internet. While the content being loaded was significantly smaller than it is today, it could still take hours or even days to download some files. Thankfully, those days are long gone and many residential users even have access to speeds up to 1Gbps. But what advancements have been made for server connections?
When most people hear the city Buffalo, their first thought probably isn’t, “Wow, that sounds like a great city for dedicated hosting.” But Buffalo is in fact trusted by thousands of global enterprises for their New York dedicated hosting needs and it is the location of ServerMania’s flagship data center.
When every business is in the startup process, but especially in the case of SaaS startups, there is often a rush to deploy a large amount of servers to meet the needs of a growing user base.

SaaS stands for software as a service, and if you weren't aware it's a popular trend for growing businesses. Essentially, your company purchases access to cloud-based platforms that serve different purposes.

But just knowing that SaaS tools are the future isn't enough. So to help your business stay on the right track, we're bringing you the best SaaS tools to help your company needs.

To help your company find the best bandwidth options for your needs, we're breaking down why unlimited bandwidth doesn't exist, and the best alternatives.
