While your mileage may vary, most people hold critical data on their servers. If it's just a server for personal use, that's still time, resources, and effort invested in setting it up and keeping it running. Time that now has to be backtracked and spent again on reconfiguring everything.
If you're running the server for business or research, there will be a lot of people directly dependent on that server being up. Going down means losing money and losing trust, on top of the resource and time investment I already mentioned.
How ready are your servers for hardware failure? Electrical outage? Natural disaster? A good backup strategy will account and compensate for as many potential interruptions as possible.
saveOur goal with ServerSuit has always been to lower the barrier for entry and cost of operation for online businesses. Modern businesses run on servers; which can be expensive and a headache to run. Windows Server is notoriously bloated and expensive, and often not worth dealing with at all, even if you can afford it.
Virtualization has come a long way in recent years. These days it's not uncommon to deploy a massive amount of virtual servers on top of a physical server cluster. Virtualization makes management of system resources and data storage systems a breeze, as in cloud VPS. Virtual servers can be moved around while you swap a physical server out, and then moved back onto it with no downtime.
Running your own server, at home on your own network, to host a website is pretty easy nowadays... but you still run into general upkeep issues you'd expect when running complex hardware. You already have to configure, troubleshoot and run whatever software you got on there to keep your site running, and you also have to manage the actual hardware; including maintaining the device to ensure as much uptime as possible and having to deal with memory or drive failures.
If you ended up on our site, reading this post, it's safe to assume that you're looking for an effective Linux server control panel to setup and manage one or more of your servers. Or, maybe, you don't have any servers yet but are looking into hooking one up. And if you're looking for a Linux server management tool, ServerSuit is probably not the first option that comes up on your search.
Indeed there are dozens of control panels out there, so why even bother with ServerSuit?
It's getting up there. Whether you realize it or not Linux is steadily becoming a major presence in consumer technology. While the professional world has been hype on Linux for some time now, it's been slow to break into the general consumer market.
No matter what you're doing in life, whether it's work or hobby, the aim is the same. How do you do what you're doing better and faster? How can you be more productive?
Well, when it comes to managing multiple Linux servers in shared or VPS hosting service, the goals don't change. So what's the most effective way to manage all your servers to make them more productive? You actually have a range of options you can try, and that's exactly what we'll be covering in this article.
Here at ServerSuit, we're always looking forward. We're constantly looking to innovate and improve our service to make sure you get the full set of features with ServerSuit so, even if you don't use all of them, you will always have them within reach. Just this year, we've rounded out ServerSuit's trove of applications, with integrated mail servers, backup and restore, support for custom scripts, FTP client as well as made improvements to our live server monitor and, of course, small improvements and bug fixes.
Of course, our work hasn't stopped and we're very close to rolling out a few exciting updates in the coming weeks, including much-requested native support for Ubuntu! Our end goal is to cover every Linux distro, and this gets us that much closer.
In addition, we've reviewed feedback regarding our interface, and we're happy to say we're working on an entire UI overhaul that should significantly improve user experience as well as give our application a fresh coat of paint, giving it a much cleaner, sleeker, look.
As always, a great thanks to our followers and subscribers and please look forward to these updates in the very near future!
"This has gotta be a joke," you're saying reading this title. Well, that's exactly what I'm thinking everyday that I use this "operating system."
Data security has been our top priority from day 1. We know that in today's environment, you can't take security for granted. So what do we actually do to protect your servers and data (and ours, for that matter)?
As a first, basic, line of defense, we don't even store your root password in our system. After we require the root password for first time activation, the password gets deleted from our servers and an account with an auto-generated password gets created and used. In turn, that new, generated, password is encrypted and can't be retrieved by anyone- including our staff. Our front end servers have to decrypt it using your ServerSuit account data to get you connected to your server.
