What is a VPS?
Posted by Sinan Esen on 13 May 2015 11:35 AM

VPS stands for Virtual Private Servers.


Virtual Private Servers are the most advanced step in server virtualization technology. They are used to partition a single physical server into isolated virtual private servers. Each virtual private server looks and behaves exactly like a real networked server system, complete with its own set of init scripts, users, processes, filesystems, etc.

Since Virtual servers are complete systems, you will need the expertise of a System Administrator in your team to manage / run the Virtual server. You can install a control panel to automate and run certain tasks with its graphical interface, however, you will still require the expertise of managing the software running and be able to do any necessary configuration changes. Openhost does not do any management of these servers, with the exception of the server operating system updates.
