Data backup and disaster Recovery

A good rule with web hosting is to always have a back-up and disaster recovery plan in place for a worst case scenario, if your data disappears. Many hosts will offer a backup service, and there are a number of options available for increased protection. One good method is to setup a RAID array for your server.  There are several different ways you can configure RAID, essentially it gives protection by spreading or copying your data over two or more redundant hard drives. Many people choose to augment this with an additional hard drive outside of the RAID array, and also do backups there. For yet another level of redundancy you could also do backups to a remote workstation. Many larger and more popular websites also choose to setup a failover to another server in a different network operations center. This can be a bit tricky for complex websites, or if there are databases involved, the team at PingPipe has over a decade of experience assisting clients with all levels of data backup and disaster recovery, and would be pleased to help you set-up the most cost-effective solution that meets your needs. For additional information on data backup and disaster recovery please contact the PingPipe sales team today. PingPipe is maximum dedicated to your business' online success.

Transfer Files Remotely to a Dedicated Server with Radmin

After signing up for a new Windows dedicated server you may be wondering what is the easiest way to transfer files to it. You may also need a way to administer your new server when you do not have access to remote desktop. Radmin is a great solution that addresses both these needs, and best of all you can try it before you buy it. Radmin is a remote administration software, you can download a demo version at anytime, or ask your PingPipe sales representative and we will include a demo version on your new dedicated server at no additional cost. Radmin itself is made up of two parts: a module that you install onto your dedicated server, and a viewer that you install on your computer. Once you have installed the server-side module it is easy to setup access accounts and passwords for it, allowing you remote access to your server from any computer that has the viewer portion available. When you connect to your dedicated server using Radmin you will be able to remotely and control your server's mouse and keyboard. Transferring files to your server is as easy as dragging and dropping. Another way some people use Radmin is to allow several people to view a server's desktop. PingPipe has partnered with the manufacturer of Radmin and is now offering full licensed versions  to all new and existing clients. at great pricing. If you would like to purchase a copy for your dedicated server or have any questions about Radmin features and benifits contact the PingPipe sales team today.  

Solid State Drive for your Dedicated Server

They cost a bit more, but for many dedicated server users the extra cost of a solid state drive is worth it for a number of reasons. Just like the name implies, solid state drives have no mechanical parts. In addition to running quieter than a traditional hard drive, this feature gives them the added advantage of not having any moving parts that can fail. They also are quite a bit faster on startup and when seaking data. Solid State Drives (sometimes abbreviated to SSD) don't require any special cooling and only use about a half to a third of a hard disk drive. Over the long term this power savings will more than make up for the initial added cost to upgrade from a SATA, SAS, or SCSI hard drive. PingPipe now offers solid state drives as an option on most of our single processor dedicated servers, visit PingPipe.com to order yours today, our knowledgeable support team is always always available to answer your questions or help you custom configure your new dedicated server.

Locked out. What is KVM?

When you lock yourself out of your car or house it is easy enough to call a locksmith;  locking yourself out of your dedicated server is a whole different level of frustration. It is easier than you think.  All it takes is one mistake when configuring a software-based firewall, and then you are no longer able to log into your server as root Administrator. The easiest way to address this is with KVM access to your server.  KVM is short for Keyboard Video Mouse, it gives you a separate IP to access your server and launches a Java-based screen that is like you are virtually standing in front of a video console plugged into your server.  KVM also gives you the ability to remotely power cycle your server at anytime, via the same separate IP address. Many of the dedicated server solutions available at PingPipe include KVM and remote reboot f0r free. On the internet, having redundancy  is very important. Let me repeat that: on the internet, having redundancy is very important. Suppport services are always available to physically reboot your dedicated server at the network level, the free KVM that is included on PingPipe dedicated server specials is a great value-added bonus of also always having an alternate way to reach the login prompt of your dedicated server. Visit pingpipe.com to check out all of the current dedicated server specials that include your own KVM with remote reboot and free setup !
