Disaster Recovery Options Now Available for CloudVPS and Dedicated Servers

DatacentersWith data center facilities located in several, strategically located regions across the continental U.S., small businesses of all sizes now trust Newtek to deliver hyper-secure, redundant, and disaster-safe hosting solutions for mission-critical I.T. systems.

While solutions for disaster recovery planning traditionally fall under the scope of custom hosting configurations, Newtek now offers a simplified add-on option for CloudVPS and dedicated server customers. This option is ideal for budget-conscious businesses or I.T. teams looking for cross-regional redundancy and security.

For CloudVPS plans, the Disaster Recovery Option provides a completely replicated copy of the virtual server that is hosted in a secondary facility located at least 500 straight miles away. In the event that a disaster event occurs (or any occurrence that leads to a service interruption or outage), a DNS change would shift access to the system to the secondary location.

For dedicated servers, the solution differs slightly, but provides similar protections. Our team will work with you to determine which files you need replicated across the secondary data center location. Typically, an identical dedicated server configuration, including identical hardware, is provided at the second facility, but, depending on your needs, this can be customized.

Separate from the replication service that is part of the Disaster Recovery Option, Newtek also offers offsite backups that can be stored at a secondary facility (note that all Newtek data center facilities meet the same high security, compliance, and reliability standards), as well as customized, cross-regional load balancing solutions. Contact us for for a free assessment for this or any other need.


There is actually no charge for our new Disaster Recovery Option itself, which provides replication services on either CloudVPS or dedicated servers. All costs associated with this service are connected to the services you’re duplicating across data centers. For exact pricing, please speak to a Newtek business service specialist.

Can Cloud Computing Solution Make SMB Operations More Efficient?

HiResAs we continue our quest to “demystify”the Cloud for our customers, we thought it wise to answer the question, “Can Cloud computing make business operations more efficient than a traditional on-premise solution?”

If you’ve read our articles from earlier in the week, you have probably begun to realize that the whole the concept behind cloud computing, in and of itself, is literally to improve efficiency through technological advantages for the customer – across all operational business functions.

Think of cloud computing like leasing a home – there are no real risks, no big initial expenditure, and you are not tied to it in any way. Oh, and there is someone to update your software whenever it becomes available.

As IT products have become a service, cloud computing has become nothing less than a model of efficiency, providing small businesses access to high-level software for which they would otherwise have to do without. For the first time, well, since the “big guy” took charge, the “smaller guy” has the ability to stand toe to toe as they are wholly able to provide the same level of service to consumers.

And that, in the truest iteration of the word, is efficiency. Time to put another notch in the proverbial lipstick case that is cloud computing advantages.

The Entire Internet (1977)

A long, long time ago the internet was not as impossibly enormous as it is today. In the image above you can see the entire internet in 1977 – yes, that’s right, the ENTIRE internet. You see, back then the internet was basically one giant government funded science project called ARPANET.

This map shows the many different computers (and their locations) connected by the network. At the time, all of the machines were owned by either Universities or the Government. The letters and numbers in the boxes represent the make and model of each individual computer such as PDP 11 which stands for Programmed Data Processor 11.

According to ARPNET reports, maps like these were drawn regularly during the infancy of the project and were ultimately compiled in the completion report which was filed on January 4, 1978. This report was one of the first that laid out the possibilities of the ARPANET program. According to the Report, as quoted by the Computer History Museum,

“This ARPA program has created no less than a revolution in computer technology and has been one of the most successful projects ever undertaken by ARPA. The full impact of the technical changes set in motion by this project may not be understood for many years.”

A prediction which still stands true today.
