The growing popularity of offsite system administration, or DDoS protection for short, has necessitated the deployment of a new breed of IT support services known as Devops services. Devops is an abbreviation for “development offsite”; a philosophy that holds that developing and deploying applications and systems in a way that maximizes the available resources, while reducing deployment time and expense, should be the aim of an IT team.
In other words, instead of spending all your time writing programs to run servers and your servers themselves, you should be spending time making sure that your servers are running at 100% efficiency. One of the key benefits of using Devops Services is that they minimize downtime and add flexibility to your business. There are many advantages of using an offsite support service for your server applications.
One of the biggest advantages of devops services is that they are much more cost-effective than onsite services. Since devops services are a combination of both onsite and remote assistance, you will only pay for those services which you require. As such, they are much more cost-effective than insite technical support, which can really put a strain on your budget if you don’t need every last drop of help that you can get.
Also, since they do not require an in-house staff, there is no additional overhead to pay. While an in-house staff will need to find a way to pay their rent or mortgage, or other expenses to make sure that they stay afloat, develops services are entirely off the hook. You won’t have to worry about the numerous bills from getting a technician in to troubleshoot your server, or about the constant worry about whether you can afford the latest upgrades to your server.
One of the biggest drawbacks of devops services is that there may be a high ratio of “down” time to “up” time. As such, if you are experiencing a high amount of downtime then you may have a problem with your server. Because there is no guarantee when your server will go down, it is important that your IT support provider has the tools and experience to ensure that it is up as much as possible. Only by testing and tweaking your hardware and software can you hope to maintain an acceptable uptime percentage.
