We’ve designed our Storage solutions from the ground-up with everything needed to empower companies
with even the most demanding big data requirements.
We’ve crafted an easy to follow, step-by-step plan to help guide you through the process of choosing and implementing a new data storage server. This guide includes:
… and much more!
A Storage Server is primarily designed for storing data and databases. It can, for example, store a small amount of data for personal backups, or hundreds of terabytes of data for enterprise data storage. ServerMania is equipped to handle the data storage needs of any business and you can request a custom quote if you have unique storage requirements.
Cloud storage refers to any data that is stored on a server outside of your local network. ServerMania Dedicated Servers are a form of cloud storage as the data is housed in our secure facilities and accessible by you through the internet.
When it comes to setting up a cloud storage server, you have two main options: Hybrid and Dedicated Servers. The server type you select is based on the amount of storage you need as well as the I/O requirements.
Hybrid Servers are best for storage under 1TB with minimal or moderate I/O activity. These servers are similar to Virtual Private Servers, but they have fewer tenants per server and feature guaranteed resources. For most people however, Dedicated Servers are the best option for storage servers. They allow full customization of hard drive size, type, and RAID configuration. They are also cheaper per GB when compared to Hybrid Servers.
We offer dedicated servers from 120GB to beyond 80TB. We can set up a custom server based on your exact requirements, just contact us to get started. When you place your order or request a quote from us, you will have the opportunity to select the amount of storage space you need.
There are two main types of storage disks: Hard Disk Drive (HDD), and Solid State Drive (SSD). As storage servers are typically used for storing a large volume of data, HDD is the most popular choice of drive type. SSD-based storage provides significantly faster I/O performance, however their cost is slightly more per GB, and therefore are best suited for storage servers that require fast read and write operations.
Data redundancy is an important aspect of a server for data storage. RAID is a great option for maintaining disk integrity. It can duplicate and even speed along disk reads and writes stripes data across multiple hard drives to ensure that no data is lost in the event of a drive failure. RAID is ideal for any server storing data that needs to remain online. A variety of data redundancy options are available depending on the number of hard drives in your storage server. We offer RAID-0 all the way up to hardware RAID-60 with battery backup units.
Dedicated servers can be setup with a variety of Linux or Windows operating systems depending on your needs and business environment. We offer all of the latest Linux distributions as well as the option to install a custom OS for you. For businesses looking to setup a Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 or Server 2016, we offer all of the latest Windows Server operating systems as well, including Windows Server 2019.
You have the option to set up a management package each month with us when you configure your storage servers hosting with us. Please contact us for more details.
Considering the vast amount of data that may be transferred ,the network uplink speed and bandwidth allocation of a storage server are critical. It is important to choose a bandwidth plan suitable for the amount of monthly data you need.
1Gbps network ports are one of the best options for storage hosting as it ensures that any client connecting to the server can download data at an exceptionally fast rate. For clients with larger network uplink requirements, we also offer 10Gbps and 20Gbps network ports in specific locations.
Virtual storage servers need to be hosted on premium network routes to ensure that data being uploaded and downloaded from the server can be accessed quickly and efficiently. Take a look at the network upstream providers that your storage server provider utilizes. A company that stands by its connections will provide you with IPs and files to test against to see how it performs to your location.
You should utilize a provider that offers Tier 1 connectivity and redundant network routes. A Tier 1 network is a network that can reach every other network on the Internet solely via settlement-free peering. This guarantees problem-free connectivity as the network performance doesn’t rely on paying peers.
Another important factor is the Service Level Agreement (SLA) that the provider guarantees on network connectivity. A data storage server needs to be accessible at all times, so look for a provider that offers a 100% network uptime guarantee.
The processor you select for a dedicated storage server will impact how efficiently the server is able to handle the day-to-day disk activities. Choosing the best processor largely depends on what actions you will perform on the data.
If it is simply uploaded and stored, then a single processor Xeon will be sufficient. If many users will be interacting with the stored data or if intensive data compression is required, then a dual-processor would provide the processing power to handle heavy tasks.
Our servers utilize the same enterprise-grade hardware used at companies like Amazon. Unlike other providers, we charge one easy-to-understand monthly fee. You can always access your data when you need it, with no additional fees and no waiting for your request to be processed.
