Failover, or failover, is a backup operating mode in which the functions of a system component are assumed by components of the secondary system when the main component is not available either due to a fault or due to the programmed downtime.
IO Zoom Cloud Server with failover has the characteristic of offering the benefits of having an exclusive virtual server but at cheaper prices than a dedicated server. This is one of the advantages of cloud servers that are increasingly positioned as an accessible option for those who require a powerful server but do not yet need to use a dedicated server.
The service is based on an infrastructure that completely abstracts physical hardware, offers advanced management tools and is billed for real consumption of resources. The Cloud server is tolerant to hardware failures.
On the other hand, highlight other Cloud features such as geographical load balancing, failover, automatic extension, redundant DNS, etc. And finally, financially speaking, the term Cloud implies the reduction or elimination of investments in computer systems. The Cloud server is the most advanced service for any ambitious project.
Why choose a cloud server?
- Expenses according to use: one of the characteristics of iozoom.com servers in the cloud is that it generates expenses only when they are used. While most companies require using the servers 24 hours a day, there may be projects that are in such demand and it is better to pay for the use before hiring a monthly plan. It is useful especially in the beginnings of small businesses that do not have the resources to have a fixed expense and prefer to only pay for the use. It is noteworthy that cloud servers are always available but only when the client uses them to generate expenses, although this also depends on the service provider and the plans that it offers.
- Cost savings: this is not an exclusive advantage of cloud servers but of the servers offered by external companies, whether dedicated, VPS or in the cloud. Hiring a company that provides these services avoids investing large amounts of money, at least initially, in servers and their own professional staff. External servers have trained personnel and technicians always available for any consultation and support. In addition to this, the plans are very accessible and adapted to each need.
- Scalability: is another advantage of cloud servers. Being totally virtual, it is possible to increase the number of resources as projects have greater demand without having to change the type of server or having to modify the type of contract previously established. This is an important benefit because there may be stages in which more resources are needed but then you can return to the number of initial resources easily and without inconvenience.
