More small- and medium-sized businesses have begun moving toward managed virtual private servers to ensure the technology operates securely and efficiently, according to a recent Hosting News report.
One major contributor to the popularity of managed VPS hosting among smaller organizations is their general lack of adequate IT resources for the technology. According to the report, the emerging trend among SMBs to invest in VPS hosting is a result of the security and assurance offered by experts in the technology who manage their virtual private servers.
"Managed VPS hosting varies from one provider to another, but if you're not technically savvy, this 'hands off' approach is your most viable option," the report explains. "It's the ideal situation when you have little or no experience running or maintaining a server because the host typically takes care of software and system updates you request, and in some cases, does them proactively."
Also, the report emphasizes the importance of a secure provider to initiate virtual server hosting. Because SMBs may lack the budget space or experience in their IT department to manage their own VPS, many have begun consulting providers to deploy business VPS as quickly as possible.
The growing trend among SMBs to invest in VPS hosting may continue to expand throughout the enterprise sector, as a separate report recognized virtual server hosting as one of the most common new assets in IT.
