Private Linux servers
can have many different uses

Virtual and dedicated systems are complete computers in every respect, giving you total control of the entire system. The only difference between virtual and dedicated systems is that virtual systems own only a piece of the physical computer, and cannot control the hardware devices directly. Consider the following examples of things you can do with all of our systems.

Run plain-Jane web applets. While it seems like overkill, virtual systems can be an ideal area for running Perl and PHP4 scripts because you have a convenient way to develop and keep the environment safe. You also don't have to worry about getting thrown off as a hog because your demands are (normally) competing with only 14 (or fewer) other users, rather than hundreds.
Run any database engine you want. We give you root access, the normal prerequisite for installing a database. As a result, if your preferred database is available in Linux, you should be able to make it operate in our environment. We also have pre-built installs for a number of databases. Consult us for details.
Run any Linux application you want. If the application you want to run is available in Linux, can be run over the Internet, and does not require exotic hardware, you will be able to run it on our virtual systems.
Develop new applications. Our server and its optional backup give you the ability to develop new applications safely, and at low cost. Virtual environments are ideal for developing code because when the machine crashes, all that crashes is the environment rather than the underlying hardware.
Run public content away from your main server. Many people have over-utilized, under-secured, or communications-expensive primary servers. Virtual systems can be a way to run their public applications off-site in a robust, low cost environment. A little secure tunneling work can make them part of your local network, even to the extent of making them a remotely mounted file-system.
Provide a low-cost "hot" recovery site for an in-house system. Many companies lack a reasonable disaster plan for their business. Having their business go up in smoke means going out of business. A redundancy plan can keep precious data safe, and also accessible.
Actually run your business. Having an application server on your premises can be costly and inconvenient. Running it from a data center where it can be cared and tended-for by professionals can make a lot more sense. This is even true of greenscreen applications, because our bulletproof greenscreen connectivity is so simple and reliable that it feels like it is "on premises."
Run DNS services. If you are looking for a backup DNS resolver for your primary business server, virtual systems can be an extremely cost-effective way to solve your problems. The problem of DNS resolution boils down to communications accessibility which we resolve more reliably than others, and of hardware redundancy where we are also superior to others.
(Horror-of-horrors) run web or e-mail services. We say horror of horrors because our mirrored static environment will normally provide users with a more reliable level of service than is available in a dynamic environment. On the other hand, if your web applications are dynamic a virtual server can be ideal. This is especially true if you have a number of different applications and want to run them in totally separate environments to avoid conflicts and extra work.
