Managed server is a type of internet hosting service. It also provides data storage services. Further, it has maintenance and backup systems. Managed servers offer high performance, better security, email stability, and control, and due to these factors, these are high-priced hosting service. Managed server is mainly used by websites that receive a large volume of traffic. Managed servers create secure and dedicated network connectivity. This enables a faster, more predictable performance, besides saving of cost. Managed server utilizes a flexible processor/core, memory, and onboard storage options. When enterprises need to deliver better compute and IO performance and requires higher capacity, managed servers are used.
Increase in need for efficient and optimized solutions for server is a driving factor of the managed servers market. Managed servers provide economic operation to organizations by optimizing the performance of all the server devices. Moreover, they offer timely software updates to ensure servers are protected against any newly developed viruses or malware. Additionally, managed servers provide storage and data protection. They offer disaster recovery, backup and restoration services, and limited access to the operating system or controlled access. Managed servers are used in different applications, such as, for hosting large, busy websites, databases and web applications. Organizations also use them to store sensitive data. Unlike cloud hosting, managed server is not a part of any network where different users share hardware. This makes it more secure for the storage of sensitive data. However, high cost of managed servers hinders the growth of the market globally.
