VPS is your own virtual private server. Working with virtual servers is the same as dedicated servers. All access and connectivity is managed by Sautech and access to servers are on the same basis as dedicated infrastructure. VPS gives you computing resources at a lower price when compared to dedicated servers. The flexibility to upgrade resources are easily managed and can be up or down scaled at any time.

Sautech provides the Virtual Infrastructure Hardware and allows you to choose your preferred operating system i.e. Microsoft Windows or Linux Distros.

Why use VPS hosting?

Migrate your onsite server or applications to the cloud to access from anywhere, guarantee uptime, enhance security and disaster data recovery. No need for onsite IT support to manage and backup your server or applications.

Increased Performance
Unlike shared hosting plans, where there are dozens, if not, hundreds of other users sharing the same server as your business, a VPS will ensure that your enterprise remains independent from other users. Websites sharing a server can create functionality problems. For instance, if a website sharing the same server as your business is receiving high levels of traffic, it can slow all of the sites on the server. By using a VPS, the functioning of your website will never be influenced by any external site.
Greater Control
Not using a VPS can result in a lack of access to your root environment. Without root access, you must rely on software packages the hosting provider supports. Unsupported software can raise security concerns for hosting providers. On a shared server, the software that is available will be dictated by the host. If your business requires industry specific software that is not supported by the host this could cause issues and may prevent the use of the software entirely. By using a VPS, your business will be able to freely implement any necessary software changes within the server.
As a small business owner with no immediate plans for expansion you may be able to predict the amount of traffic to your website. But if you are a growing business, chances are that traffic levels will increase as the customer base expands, and you will need a server to accommodate the growth. Unlike a shared server, which can be limiting in regards to scalability, a VPS makes it easy to scale up operations without interfering with the functioning of the server. In fact, scaling up can be as simple as upgrading your hosting plan, and this typically does not require any downtime, thus, your site will continue to operate without interruption.
Low Cost
As internet technologies have advanced, the cost of web hosting has significantly decreased, making a VPS an option for nearly any business. Many providers have VPS hosting plans for under $10 per month, which is competitively priced to most shared plans.
Customer Service
If you use a VPS, you will have access to a dedicated customer service representative whom will be able to assist you efficiently in order to resolve any issues. They will also offer recommendations for your ever changing business needs.
