Dedicated server is where an Internet connectivity option is provided in which a physical server (or servers) is dedicated to a single business customer. Where the users have complete control over the resources, so they can optimize it for their unique requirements, including performance and security.
With a shared server, you are at the mercy of the limitations placed by having to share resources. This means that the CPU processing power and RAM are all distributed (and not evenly) with the other sites on the server. With a dedicated server, however, organizations would not have to worry about shared resources. The full capacity of the server is at your disposal and won't affect your productivity or internet speed.
The dedicated environment is advantageous regarding speed. In a dedicated environment, the virtual layer is non-existent which allows for data pass-through without any latency. This results in faster site load times and requested response actions.
The most crucial benefits that a dedicated server takes care of is security. If you are in a regulated industry and are charged with maintaining the privacy of customer’s data and information, you absolutely cannot share a server with another company. This is because you cannot allow for the possibility that one of these other companies might be able to access your server’s data and customer information.
As it entails maintaining this security, enterprises will be able to install the highest level of security available. Not only will the data be secured, but also applications and your entire customer database. One aspect that makes this so appealing for business owners is that you will have total control over your site, without having to bend to the needs of other businesses on your shared server or the configurations of your web hosting service.
