What is Nfina’s Hybrid Cloud?
Nfina’s Hybrid Cloud is the perfect alternative to the public hyperscale cloud, offering more benefits than the public cloud without the cost and complexity. In reality, Nfina customers save 50% more with Nfina’s Hybrid Cloud versus public cloud solutions. Nfina’s Hybrid Cloud is a fully managed Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS)solution designed to protect and ransomware proof your business. Copies of critical data are maintained on-site and off-site, ensuring your IT infrastructure is always available for recovery and downtime is kept to a minimum. We make storage, compute, backup, disaster recovery, managed services, and system monitoring easy by combining the entire process into a single vendor solution.
Nfina’s Hybrid Cloud includes on-prem edge compute and uses a private cloud as opposed to the public cloud. Most big-box vendors and cloud providers define IaaS as a cloud computing service. Nfina doesn’t limit our defination of IaaS to the cloud. With Nfina’s Hybrid Cloud, the on-prem hardware lease is included in the service eliminating the burden of large, upfront investments. Nfina’s Hybrid Cloud is the perfect solution to move your IT infrastructure forward with affordable fixed monthly billing, Op-Ex savings and no upfront Cap-Ex spending tying up capital.
What is a Server?
A server is a computer designed to process requests and deliver many resources, data, or services toanother computer known as clients over a network such as a local area network (LAN) or a wide area network (WAN).
TYPES OF SERVERS
Application Servers run applications in lieu of client computers running applications locally. Application servers often run resource-intensive applications that are shared by a large number of users. Doing so removes the need for each client to have sufficient resources to run the applications. It also removes the need to install and maintain software on many machines as opposed to only one.
Database Servers typically operate in tandem with another type of server. This kind of server simply exists to store data in groups. One of the more common types is known as “SQL”.
File Servers store and distribute files. Multiple clients or users may share files stored on a server. In addition, centrally storing files offers easier backup or fault tolerance solutions than attempting to provide security and integrity for files on every device in an organization.
FTP Servers allow users to upload files to it or download files after authenticating through an FTP client. Users can also browse the server’s files and download individual files as they wish.
Mail Servers transfers and stores mail over corporate networks through LANs, WANs and across the Internet. Mail servers typically run on “SMTP” or “Simple Mail Transfer Protocol”.
Virtual Servers mimic the functionality of a physical dedicated server. Multiple virtual servers may be implemented on a single bare metal server, each with its own OS, independent provisioning, and software. Virtual servers increase IT productivity, agility, efficiency, and responsiveness and they help reduce operating costs and capital, while simplifying data center management.
Web Servers host programs and data requested by users across the Internet or an intranet. Web servers respond to requests from browsers running on client computers for web pages, or other web-based services.
TYPES OF SERVERS
Tower Servers are similar in appearance to regular desktop computers. Their design allows them to be placed around an office and in smaller environments like a PC. Tower servers are generally on the lower end price-wise, but they are scalable and can be expanded pretty decently becoming expensive.
Rack servers are self-contained units designed to run intensive computing operations and house everything within required to run as a stand alone or in a networked environment. They are easy to expand with additional memory, storage, and processors. They are housed vertically to save space and most come in 1U and 2U configurations.
