What is Managed Hosting?

If maximum reliability, performance and cost optimisation are important, Managed Hosting is the best choice. An infrastructure that is tailored to your individual requirements is ideal for high-load websites and business-critical applications.

As described in detail in the whitepaper "Why use external solutions?", outsourced Managed Hosting solutions offer various advantages as compared to running your own data center. A setup that is hosted and managed by a Managed Hosting provider offers you 24/7 access to the provider's service and support.

Managed Hosting solutions are always tailored to the customer. They typically include several dedicated servers, as well as supplementary components and services: load balancing, switches, firewalls, monitoring, backup and patch management.

 

Example of a Managed Hosting solution with part virtualisation

PlusServer provides the client with an infrastructure solution consisting of two VMware vSphere ESXi host systems, twelve virtual instances, a dedicated storage appliance, a redundant firewall pair (Business 100M) and a redundant Juniper switch infrastructure.

The setup is designed as a managed setup so that changes (change requests) can be performed by PlusServer at any time. The customer has complete and unrestricted administrative access to all instances. In addition to services such as hardware monitoring, system backups and patch management, PlusServer also provides access to hands-on work by the technical support team, if required. The entire setup is designed for high scalability. Additional virtual machines and other dedicated host systems can be added as necessary.

Downtime Cost Calculator

What is the cost of downtime for your company?

Many companies are unaware of the actual financial loss that is involved with the temporary loss of their online infrastructure. The experts at the Gartner blog speak of an average of 5,600 dollars a minute - but there are big differences depending on the business size and the dependency on the online business.

Our cost calculator can help you bring some light into the darkness. Just enter some values and you can see in real time how your cost evolves in the course of a downtime.

Our clients speak for us

  • Our customers expect us to deliver highly reliable and efficient solutions, ranging from technical analysis, strategic planning and development to operation and subsequent optimisation. It is important that all links of the chain meet this requirement. We decided to work with PlusServer as the company has extensive experience in complex IT solutions that are nevertheless scalable at any time.

    Heiko Findeisen, Head of Composite Services, DB Systel GmbH

  • With PlusServer, we have a partner who provides optimal support when it comes to infrastructure. It is efficient and guaranteed, so we can concentrate on our core business areas.

    Klaus Hufnagel, Managing Director and COO
  • When it comes to our hosting providers we attach great importance to a fast connection as well as hardware and networks with high availability. We do not want to make our small users wait a long time to see their desired content. In addition, our pages are partially financed by advertising and our advertising clients count on the failsafe nature of our site. That is why we opted for PlusServer, which guarantees excellent performance for us.

    Christoph Weber, Head of Application Development & Internet Technology

  • We are very satisfied with our cooperation with PlusServer so far. The company has responded very flexibly to our requirements and created the optimal solution for us. We are also pleased that the migration of the Reisebüro Wüst, our pilot user, has worked so well.

    Thomas Klein, Head of IT infrastructure, franchise headquarters Lufthansa City Center Reisebüropartner GmbH (LCR)
