Since the beginning of time (or at least the start of the modern Internet era) the dedicated server has been a pillar of stability, a private island, oblivious to the turmoil of the outside world. This isolated nature is simultaneously its greatest weakness and the root of its greatest strength. It is no surprise that with fixed resources, bare metal and dependability that the dedicated server is, and for the most part always will be, the true workhorse of the Internet.
Then in the late 2000s, things started to evolve. The cloud arrived and while not entirely a new technology, it had finally matured and come to market in a big way. The cloud offers elasticity, meaning the ability to scale up and down resources, as needed. But this great freedom comes with a price, as you do share your physical cloud hardware with other users.
SingleHop, a Chicago-based company, has created a perfect blend of the infamous dedicated server, its core product, with the latest in cloud computing in the newly released Dynamic Server. It truly combines the best of both worlds, as it offers the flexibility and on-demand scalability of cloud computing and the raw horsepower of a dedicated server.
