Serverius data center is a reliable choice for placement in the Netherlands 

Providing virtual and dedicated servers for renting to our customers, many times we have answered questions concerning choosing this or that DPC (data processing center) or based on what characteristics we consider placement in a specific country to be prospective in comparison with any other ones.

Today we have decided to expound our position in the review about Serverius Data Center by giving detailed answers to two questions:

 

1. What is Serverius Data Center?

2. Why placement in the Netherlands is more reliable?

The DPC has declared round-the-clock readiness to monitor undisturbed operation of the customers’ hardware.

The term to react means time given to a user to answer that he/she has taken on the issue.

What are the advantages in placement in the Netherlands?

Having observed main characteristics of Serverius Data Center that is one of the prospective ones today, we can come close to the answer to the main question: why is it better in the Netherlands?

Firstly, it is difficult to find so good cohesiveness anywhere outside the Netherlands. Many people consider that if their recourse is intended for users from the CIS countries, it would be more reasonable to choose server stages on this territory. Unfortunately this is not so. Today’s imperfection of our networks does not let organize such access to websites that would be identical in any region of the states of the commonwealth and would compete with analogical indexes received when placing in the Netherlands. Besides, in this case coherency has unique character: it is simultaneously high for Europe, Asia and the USA.

Secondly, in view of legislation peculiarities in the Netherlands, some things that are prohibited in many countries can be allowed there. Here we mean publication of content “for adults” for placement of which one can be even brought to trial if published on servers in Ukraine or Russia, for example.

Thirdly, of course, we should not forget that it is also advantageously to place servers in the Netherlands. Nor example, services of the Serverius Data Center predetermine such level of reliability and possibilities for designing private networks which cannot be received in domestic DPC even by overpaying several times.

 

Conclusion.

We offer services in renting servers from Serverius Data Center aiming to create the most comfortable variants for our customers to use all advantages in this environment. With our help, users receive heavy-duty equipment on a stable functional stage easily with no necessity of direct cooperation with employees of a foreign company.
