Since the invention of desktop computers, technology is continuously moving towards the web development, virtual servers, web hosting, hosted solutions and cloud computing. Virtual private servers are attracting businesses that are looking for cost effective storage with security features. It is called a VPS because though it is not a dedicated machine in reality but with the use of flexible virtualized resources it serves users like a privately owned machine giving you control of operating system and applications to be installed. The working of virtual private server is in many ways similar to a separate computer but in fact, it is running software that works on the same physical computer where other customer’s virtual machines are working. It can also be configured to run the server software but this is devoted to meet the single customer’s requirements. Virtual Private Server also ensures the privacy and security of every customer even when it works on the same computer. We can simply say that virtual private server is a big server divided into multiple mini servers which keep the data of all customers separately by not compromising the privacy.
Virtual private server is no doubt an excellent hosting facility but it can come to different issues when not maintained properly. So, here we will give few tips how you can optimize virtual private server performance.
First of all to ensure the optimal performance of the VPS service, the subscribers should regularly keep on checking the performance and speed of the applications that are being hosted on virtual private server. There could be many reasons for performance deficiency with Virtual Private Server like bandwidth issue, network latency, less storage space, hardware or processing resources deficiency. The performance of virtual private server is also affected when there is any conflict from the software’s running on the server. In this situation, if the storage space is increased for the hosting, the problem can be resolved. Routinely monitoring of all these issues can also optimize the performance of VPS Hosting.
In other cases, database implementation needs to be optimized and then only the page speed can be increased for loading because many companies use open source system of database like My SQL. My SQL is usually paired with Apache which is web server software but this combination is most likely to slow down the speed of the server. The speed or processing power of My SQL database can be increased by enabling the dynamic durability settings on My SQL. So, it can be a helpful option to optimize the performance of Hyper-V virtual private server.
Many VPS Hosting providers offer pre-installed applications for initial implementation services. There are many companies who do not use these pre-installed applications or they may do not need them anymore. If these pre-installed applications are removed from the servers (if not useful for the clients), it will not only boost up the speed that will be very helpful in uploading data but also it will free up some valuable storage space which will optimize the performance of virtual private server to great extent. So, this way, VPS performance can be optimized to get favorable results.
