Different companies have different needs. For young companies that don't want to make a big hardware commitment or others who simply need to scale up quickly, a dedicated server solution is the way to go.
A dedicated server offers the 24x7x365 support, the controlled environment, the redundancy, security and amenities of colocation without the logistic and financial responsibility of ownership.
"Our dedicated server offering represents the ultimate in infrastructure flexibility," said Phillip Koblence, VP Operations, NYI. "You scale up or scale down depending on your immediate, business-critical need. For instance, we've had boutique online retailers add capacity during the Q4 shopping season, only to return to a more standard solution afterwards. Similarly, if an online broadcaster is planning a major live event, there would be a comparable spike in need, followed by a draw-down once the broadcast was complete.
"The bottom line," he continued," is that because you rent the infrastructure from us, systems requirements, connectivity, bandwidth concerns -- in short, everything relating to deployment -- is our responsibility, allowing your staff to focus on product development and other strategic concerns."
