Once you learn what the variety of forms of hosting options are, you can make a more well informed option with what you’ll need. Which web hosting type or plan is the perfect choice for you?

Free hosting is a good solution should you want to set up a non-critical website for fun. Commonly in a free web hosting environment, connection speed is definitely slow, website will be down continually, and marketing banner ads is automatically put onto the site. Various businesses require you to buy your domain name to get free web hosting services from them, while some offer you a free subdomain beneath them, such as []. Be careful as you will be unable to transfer these free subdomains.

Shared Web Hosting

Shared hosting services traditionally started out by supplying space on hosting servers so that a number of different customers would be serviced by the one machine. A specific webserver could accommodate a variety of hosting accounts, each having an allotted amount of storage space and data transfer.
This particular web hosting is certainly appropriate for new websites, because it is the most cost effective way for you to begin a web presence. In a shared enviroment environment, you and various other web site owners share one server. This can include sharing the actual server and the software programs contained in the server. Shared web hosting solutions are low-cost due to the fact cost to use the web server is distributed between you and the other people.

Often times there are disadvantages, however. A shared hosting system is impacted by the misuse of resources by individual users that could affect everyone. Therefore, the bigger the pool of resources and also the more redundancies in place, the less hazard towards hosting account. Also, only some web hosts feature a clustered host environment and may still mean you are actually sharing a single-piece of hardware with multiple users.

Value Added Reseller Hosting

This particular service is aimed for system administrators, site designers, web-developers, IT staff or perhaps others, who want to resell their own web hosting service. Also, it is an excellent choice for all those with a number of websites, because makes it easier to handle various websites using one control panel.

Site builders are purchasing their hosts along with supplying separate web hosting services for their clientele. This is known as development hosting whereby they provide web development services along with a host server found at their office. The client gets charged for any programming and care of the website.

Virtual Hosting
Recommended for more experienced users, and others needing to purchase specific programs or software not delivered by shared web hosting. Your site is put on a server with other sites, like shared web hosting, however normally there can be less websites every server. Can also include root or administrator access to its own operating-system installation inside a virtualized environment.

Virtual private servers share a single physical server but operates similar to many, separate servers. A VPS is really a used as a stepping stone between shared web hosting and buying your own dedicated machine. Even though each VPS instance shares hardware resources, they are designated a specific piece of the computing resources.

A VPS circumvents the issue of having your web hosting neighbors bring down your site, while cutting down on the expense of a dedicated server.

Dedicated Servers
When you invest in a dedicated server, your website(s) get access to the total server, because it is not shared with any other users. Can also include full root or administrative access just like a VPS. This is basically the advised track for web sites with numerous customers or made to order requirements unavailable inside a shared web hosting environment.

In a dedicated hosting environment, you will find the complete server to oneself. This permits for really fast performance, because you have all the server’s resources entirely, free of sharing together with other website owners. Having said that, which also will mean that you are going to be accountable for the cost of server operation completely. This is an excellent choice for internet websites that want a large amount of system resources, or need a higher level of security.

These kinds of hosting plans end up being for organizations that require a massive amount of data transfer usage to run their site applications. These firms manage T1 access lines for significant packets of internet data and possess many connections to an internet backbone. They usually have fully manned information processing facilities and the costs are usually high for making use of these kinds of services.

You imported a Management Pack, now what… Part 3


In part 1 of these series we talked about MPs and in part 2 we did our preparations, imported an MP and created an override MP. So now we are ready for the next steps… Investigating the discoveries…

What? I want to fine-tune now…

While I can perfectly understand that, I always believed it is better to start looking at the discoveries first to understand what exactly is being discovered in your environment. If you know what is being discovered, you will also make it much easier for yourself to understand what is being monitored and when alerts arrive, how you can address them.

Many MPs have a very thorough manual that includes the discoveries so you can just read the manual and continue. In the case of the Veeam MP, the manual includes a complete Appendix on the different discoveries that are done by the Management Pack. That includes the discovery rule, frequency in seconds, target and discovered classes. As an example:

Veeam Explorer for Active Directory: It Just Works!

Aside from being on the Veeam Product Strategy team, I also have a role in the Veeam community. This includes keeping in touch with bloggers, social communities and of course Twitter. Recently, I got a message from one Twitter user in immediate need of some help. The result is good, and no Active Directory domains were harmed in the making of these blogposts. Sound interesting? Read on!

A fellow vExpert Tim Smith sent me a Twitter direct message asking if I could send him an updated copy of the Veeam Explorer for Active Directory beta. I thought at first the request was odd, as I was pretty sure there wasn’t an updated copy. The story gets a bit more interesting as we discovered that since July 1, the standalone beta has expired. That’s fine, as we are in beta 1 for Veeam Backup & Replication v8 which is part of the Veeam Availability Suite; which has Veeam Explorer for Active Directory built-in the installer like we currently have for Exchange.

Continuing through a flurry of Twitter direct messages, it became clear what happened. Tim’s client had deleted an entire Organizational Unit of computer and WordPress Hosting  accounts. Not just a few, but over 1,400 computer accounts. WHOA!

What do you do in this situation? Well, I had an idea that I shared with Tim. The way Veeam Explorer for Active Directory works is pretty slick. We have our backup processing engine that moves the data from the source VM effectively the same way for all situations. The application-aware image processing and guest file system indexing can tell us a lot about the VM however, including what application(s) are running and in this case whether the VM is a domain controller. That information is used in the restore scenarios, and it paid big dividends for Tim in this almost-disaster.

Tim’s client was using Veeam Backup & Replication v7, and an updated version of the standalone beta just wasn’t available since the entire product beta 1 has been out internally. I had an idea. What if we did the following:
