VpsCity Leverages A Dedicated Server with CloudLinux Technology For Studio Publica

Studio Publica embarked on restructuring some of their IT infrastructure services to improve operational processes, reduce cost and roll-out products in a quick time-frame. Like many companies, they faced a number of challenges, including: capacity constraints, efficient use of Infrastructure resources, unmanaged development environments, backup & restore policies that were not organised or implemented based on best practices.

Studio Publica worked with VpsCity to define a holistic solution that would accelerate IT deployments, condense resources and implement best-practices and policies for infrastructure management and efficient use of resources by leveraging a Dedicated Server with CloudLinux Technology.

Business Challenge

Publica is a multi-disciplinary Christchurch design agency. As a design-led creative agency, they deliver brands across multiple platforms. From the development of visual presence, to applications and websites, to effective marketing plans. Studio Publica serves clients locally and globally. Offering a world-class service to their clients and ensuring zero business downtime.

Studio Publica approached VpsCity as they faced challenges with the day to day reliability of their IT Infrastructure and the support that was offered by their existing IT network.

The requirement of running independent applications (specific to their industry) coupled with the usual applications that are required in a normal, day to day business. With significant growth in the size, scale and complexity of the work Studio Publica was undertaking, they needed a more robust business IT solution that would support the immediate and longer term business needs.

Value Proposition

VpsCity provided day-to-day management of their infrastructure and website hosting server which allowed Studio Publica to offload IT operations and server management without compromising their control of the IT environment, or their focus on architectural and network strategy required to meet business goals. VpsCity's global footprint promised consistent service, at all ends of Studio Publica operations, with 24/7/365 support.

Dedicated Server with CloudLinux to replace Cloud Servers


Dedicated Servers - HP New generation Blade Server with Intel Xeon Technology

CPanel/WHM - cPanel is the next generation web hosting control panel system. It is designed for the end users of the system and allows control of everything from adding or removing email accounts to administering MySQL databases, install scripts, eCommerce and more.

CloudLinux - CloudLinux is the first commercial OS that meets the specific needs and demands of web hosting. Imagine if servers going down due to one customer suddenly hogging all the resources was no longer possible. CloudLinux is making rock hard hosting stability a reality. CloudLinux does it better by isolating and controlling resource spikes to prevent entire servers going down. That means less support calls and less time tracking down and suspending accounts.

Fully managed service including operating system updates, application updates and complete server administration.
