Aside from the pure power of Hyper-V at a basic level, a Windows VPS hosting solution can provide your business with a number of stand-out advantages that set it apart from other choices on the market. Many Windows VPS options will come with high availability (HA) clustered infrastructure, which allows your VPS to stay up and running even if your hardware goes down. One or more failover clusters attached to the system, each with live migration, will keep your data and applications secure, ensuring that even in the event of a catastrophic failure, live copies will still exist.
Another benefit often found in tandem with a Hyper-V VPS solution is a SAN storage backend. This kind of high-performance storage can often eliminate one of the
most common problems with a VPS – I/O bottleneck. Although a VPS server is great at distributing resources, one of the things it cannot predict is how much storage disk input and output its finite resources will require at any given moment. SAN storage in combination with a managed Hyper-V environment can eliminate many of the I/O spikes seen in other VPS systems, giving you access to more reliable and stable performance. Windows Sever 2008 R2 also makes patching and updating a simple and straightforward process that can be easily managed by your provider, and with no downtime suffered by your business. In many cases, Hyper-V solutions can offer 99% or better uptime guarantees because of the stability of this hosting platform.
