cloud-storage

Do I Need to Backup my Data since Cloud Server so reliable?
Everyone wants to save investment dollar on data backup and reduce hassle to perform additional reproduction of database.
“ We do not want to have backup because Cloud Server is good enough in data protection.”
Yes. Cloud Server does excellent job on data protection. However, all users have to bear in mind that data protection is different from backup.
What is data protection? It is an effort to ensure availability and integrity of data via file or record locking, database shadowing and data mirroring. Data protection can’t be utilized to recover historical data.
Net Onboard always advises Cloud Server subscribers go for additional backup to double secure all the confidential and critical data. The risk of Cloud Server image corruption is there and when this happened it will be disaster without a backup plan in place.
Net Onboard offers two type of backup solutions. Following are the available backup options:
1. Snapshot Backup (Daily/Weekly)
This is a full clone image of the server and we would recommend client to go for weekly snapshot backup at minimum level.
2. Cloud Storage Backup (External Backup)
You can utilize cloud storage for content backup and usually we will need to configure the backup script to utilize the FTP access to transfer the backup file to external storage. We recommend backup being done for important content (e.g: Web Files & Database).
Cloud storage simply means remote storage. With the enablement of Cloud Storage, subscribers can now store photos, documents & songs remotely instead of locally and enjoy the benefits of mobility to access your data anytime & anywhere.

online-marketing

Malaysia internet usage population rise rapidly since 2007. Latest research shows 58.8% Malaysian is an active internet user in June 2011. It is a 15% increase over previous year according to the Neilson Company’s Mobile Insight Survey.

The arrival of internet age brings a lot of conveniences to human life. We share news, search to update our knowledge, set up business and maintaining social life via internet. We are now depending heavily on the internet to function every day.

Pre-internet age customer is lagging behind in today society; while online shopping is a fast growing purchasing trend. Customer prefers to shop at home via internet, and collect the purchased product from nearer shop or being delivered to the door step. It saves time and cost.

Malaysian is expected to join the online shopping population within 5 years. It is a global trend. As a business owner, revolution of customer buying behavior could be an opportunity or a threat. As long as we master the online marketing tools and further utilizing the available internet infrastructures and resources, we definitely are creating opportunities for our business.

How effective is online marketing? According to Neilson Worldwide’s “Trust in Advertising” survey, 40% of the customers trust email newsletter, which means email marketing strategy, can reach half of the potential group population successfully.

Malaysian young population age 20-24 are the highest internet users, almost six out of ten of them spending average 22.3hours online per week. We cannot deny that website and online marketing toolkits are vital to marketer’s proposal.

We should understand the pattern of our target group before we are implementing any of the available online marketing toolkits. We have to find answers to these 4 questions; Who are the customers? Where are they? How to influence them? Are they able to commit to the Brand?

Threat or opportunity? The answer is depended on how we handle the paradigm shifting of customer’s buying behavior. We should keep transforming to adapt to the new marketing environment by using new resources to the existing marketing strategy instead of remaining with the old pattern.

Virtual Server (vServer)- low cost high productivity

cloud

Intended to run a private server hosting but lack of financial budget? vServer is the solution for small and medium enterprise who wants to fully control on website traffic and bandwidth usage with little cost.

vServer combines the power and flexibility of a dedicated server with the cost savings of share hosting. However, as virtual dedicated, the website owner in fact shares the server space with a small number of other users; but each vServer is effectively isolated from other account on the server that allow website owner has the full control over the server space.

vServer emphasizes to virtual machine, although running in software on the same physical computer as other users virtual machine; vServer is functionally equivalent to a separate physical computer that is dedicated to the individual customer needs. It has the privacy of a separate physical computer and can be configured to run as a server computer.

Whenever the bandwidth offered by the share hosting environment limits the website traffic, causing data uploading time delay, now is the time to invest vServer.

vServer acts just like a real dedicated server, but in some way it is even more convenient, flexible and scalable. It offers many of the capabilities and features of dedicated server, including admin (root) access and dedicated IP address. Some of the vServer even offer unmetered bandwidth that can improve the efficiency of the website upload speed directly.

vServer also allows website owner to reboot and “power cycle” the virtual server, connect the virtual server’s console for off-line maintenance, change serve’s kernel and even reinstall a different operating system.

vServer removes many of the security and administration problem associated with share hosting. Website owner can require hosting company to restart server or test configurations anytime without affected other vServer user in the same physical device.

Even vServer run on a shared host server, it will not be overcommitted the RAM in host server. Every byte of vServer server RAM that purchased by website owner is backed by the real RAM in the host server.

Self dependency of vServer can guarantee 99.9% of privacy protection from other virtual hosting clients. Each vServer client does not share TCP/IP stacks, processes and disk space. None of the virtual hosting client on the host server can access to any others vServer client website files, database, or any process that run in the hosting place.

vServer is able to take care of the level of dynamic usage and SQL integration in hosting environment. The more complex queries and integrated the application, the technical specification requirement will be increased. vServer who offers stand-alone separate space capable to offer enough bandwidth support for the dynamic website.
