Cortavo Revolutionizes Virtual Private Server Performance with a Data Center Refresh
ATLANTA — September 13, 2021 — Cortavo, a leading IT managed services provider (MSP), has undertaken a full-scale infrastructure refresh spanning May to July 2021. Cortavo's Engineering Leads Peter Miles and Paul Coad partnered with Tom Lasswell, their Vice President of IT Operations for the project. This internal team completely upgraded the Cortavo data center hardware supporting their VPS cloud service and all their hosted customers. Normally, hardware and software refreshes represent a standard routine of continuous system hygiene required of all data centers, yet this refresh was far from routine.
The overhaul included new cabinets, robust-servers, the latest Intel CPUs, more RAM, better cabling and generous storage hardware. The refresh also consisted of a host software upgrade to the latest version of VMware a vCloud Director, widening their storage capacity to operate faster with plenty of extra capacity for growth and upgrading their internet connectivity. Cortavo's technology refresh marks the debut of Cortavo Cloud, its VPS cloud hosting service offered to small and medium-sized businesses. This refresh fortifies system capacity to shoulder the demands of Cortavo's new suite of cloud services, stepping up user experience through several key benefits including:
As many project participants have realized, this is not simply a routine refresh, but also an upgrade," Tom Lasswell Stated. "With this new infrastructure in place, our Cortavo Cloud VPS customers and users should experience lightning-fast interactions, proceed with the confidence of heightened security and enjoy console access seldom granted with big cloud providers. This is a huge leap forward for our clients and they're going to feel the difference as they use our services."
- Processing Speeds: the overhaul replaced the previous processors with the latest generation of Intel 3.1 GHz, thereby raising the clock speed for better user performance and experience.
- SD-WAN: new hardware appliances allow for redundant internet connection through a vast peering network with other major data centers spanning a secure tunnel. This tunnel connects through a powerful backbone beginning with a major local hub, producing a shot communications pathway with increased speed, resulting in better browsing and phone experience with no latency. Cortavo Cloud's new hosting offers a full, redundant internet connection leveraging two channels and two different carriers for enhanced speed by prioritizing channels of least resistance.
- Enhanced Storage: accompanying a recent enlargement of storage, all primary workloads run on solid-state drives while nearline storage for archive and retention resides on advanced Seagate hards drive storage.
- vCloud Director: allows for multi-tenancy in a VMware environment. This environment grants console entry to view the machine's admin panel as a typical administrator, thus offering an access level currently unavailable with major cloud providers. System security scales with usage and multi-tenancy, and NSX-T Data Center adds a virtualization layer to the network providing another layer of software protection.
