Key Benefits to Terminal Server Hosting (RDP Hosting) in Riptide’s Datacenters:

Reduce your cost and time by centralizing applications on one server. Tasks such as loading applications, updates, backups and maintenance can be completed once instead of on each individual desktop or laptop.

Terminal Services (RDP protocol) is great for hosting applications that typically utilize significant bandwidth and processing power. With terminal servers, the workload/processing resources for the application are being performed on the server and the user is viewing the screen changes only. Each RDP connection is very efficient and uses relatively little bandwidth which means even a user with dial-up connection can have a good experience and use the hosted terminal server to access applications and the internet at the speed of the terminal server’s redundant high speed internet connection.

Datacenters are designed to maximize your uptime. Premium datacenters such as the ones used by Riptide have invested millions of dollars in infrastructure and security including generators, cooling systems, UPS systems, blended multi-carrier bandwidth, fire detection and suppression, monitoring and regulation of temperature and humidity, etc. Our enterprise datacenters have redundancy built into the network connection allowing us to provide an SLA (Service Level Agreement) of 100% for guaranteed Power and Network connectively uptime. Compare this with a typical office, or basic hosting provider, that has only 1 internet connection that may drop traffic frequently due to reliance on a single ISP telecom carrier.

Our datacenters have staff available 24/7 for technical support (remote hands) if an emergency arises. Other security features include access via dual factor authentication, locked cabinets, key codes required for access, cameras/monitoring throughout the facility and more.

Compare our network/bandwidth to other providers! – Our blended bandwidth utilizes 5 or more ISPs/telecom carriers so downtime at one carrier doesn’t affect your usage or connection. Our premium blended bandwidth is vastly superior to having a single connection. Other advantages to hosting with Riptide include: 1) no up-front costs to purchase equipment and Microsoft licensing; 2) we maintain spare parts and have additional drives, ram, CPUs; 3) we utilize only high-end Dell servers and Intel CPUs.
