Use Cases for Azure Dedicated Host   General Discussion

Started Oct-5 by PeterGroft; 108 views.

From: PeterGroft


Organizations can use Azure Dedicated Host, in a variety of ways, including:

Running mission-critical applications. Companies with business-critical applications should consider dedicated servers to improve uptime and reliability. Such applications, which may range from customer-facing applications to employee data, are crucial to the seamless operation of an organization. Besides reliability, dedicated servers improve workload control.
Running high-traffic websites. Hosting resource-intensive websites such as e-commerce stores is by far the most popular use of dedicated servers. Such websites receive thousands of concurrent requests and millions of hits per day. Rather than scaling out across many less powerful servers, an organization can scale up via a single dedicated server.
Hosting multiple websites. Most web-hosting service providers base their products on dedicated servers. This is because a high-end dedicated server can support unlimited websites, provided you ensure that its resource usage is within the resource constraints.
Running a dedicated firewall. Firewalls are necessary as the first line of defense against attacks in an organization. Yet commercial hardware and software can be costly. An organization can leverage a dedicated server as the first line of defense against cyber-attacks.
Hosting private clouds. An organization can use a dedicated server to run its own private cloud and Virtual Machines (VMs). In addition, companies can implement public cloud hosting services and still run high availability services using high-end dedicated servers.
Benefits of a Dedicated Server
A dedicated server has many advantages ranging from improved performance, security, flexibility and customization to 24/7 on-premises support.

Enhanced performance. Organizations that opt for dedicated servers do not share computing resources with others. This boosts the performance across many applications, such as websites and databases.
Improved security. Opting for a dedicated server means that no one else has access to the server, potentially boosting business security. You can also enforce firewall controls to further enhance the security of your assets without impacting performance.
Improved flexibility. Unlike a cloud server, you can use a dedicated server for virtually anything ranging from web hosting and e-commerce to Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) and email servers.
Enhanced customization. Unlike a shared server, your IT administrators have full control of the dedicated server. As such, they can easily customize the CPU, RAM, disk space and software based on the organization's needs.
Constant on-premises support. Organizations that use dedicated servers can rest easy knowing that their servers are backed with 24/7 support from an on-site professional.
