We know, mainly virtualization is connected with either Windows VPS or Linux VPS services, but as far as typical web hosting services are concerned from people’s point of view, they always think of number of websites on a single web server but in Desktop virtualization process it is not necessary to decrease number of computers and contract the things in to a single server. Reduction in the cost of infrastructure and management required to server maintenance is one of the most important feature of Desktop virtualization. Through manageable desktop environment, modified provision of systems and other devices of client side one can notice the benefit of Desktop virtualization and additionally the important factor like bandwidth is used in more improved manner. Upgrades are easily possible and available to servers in terms of storage and network stuff very easily.

A user uses data and applications from the similar server on which is running and streaming those applications and data, and this allows it to provide improved security to the applications as well as an improvement in transmission of desktop processed workload from client side to the hosted location. Adopting to virtualization also enable to client to split up any important or confidential data and applications and make it secure from any type of suspicious and unauthorized offends. Different level of security patches and permissions can be assigned to virtual machines by network administrators.

When a person is totally new to all this then obviously he get confused about all these things and marketing slogans of Web Hosting companies, and if the he is weak in terms of technical knowledge then things become worse for him.

Many people have heard about dedicated hosting and they think that dedicated IP concept is related to it only, but the fact is different as dedicated IP can be obtained to keep your website’s identity unique one which helps your website to remain unrelated from other websites which may be fraud or of spammer’s hence may harmful for sharing the same IP address with them. Dedicated IPs are also beneficial from search engine optimization point of view.

An Overview Of CDN – Content Delivery Network

March 2nd, 2011 Comments off

Content Delivery Network which is also know with its short form as CDN is a group of highly optimized servers from all over the world, though this group is widely spread one but logically its unique. The system is designed in such a way they user’s request will be redirected towards the closest server to him which produce best results for the websites which have large number of visitors from all over the world. This system works impressively by making a unique system of various web hosting servers which contains data which is placed at various points in network to optimize the bandwidth access to clients all over the network.

Few people might get problem while accessing the images and videos from the servers from long regions but if the the same data made available on a CDN network then it will reflect higher accessibility with higher speeds. The working of CDN is based on specifying the directory on a server which pulls all the files. One need to go into W3 total cache setting to enable the CDN function and make the required changes in URL.

The only drawback of this CDN transparency towards user-side, a user can identify if a CDN is accessed or not, because a delivered URL can be different that the requested URL. But as he is going to access the service much faster then he should not been so worried about it.
