Cloud Server Management with the 1&1 App
Web hosting firm 1and1 launched the 1&1 Dynamic Cloud Server app, which enables users, free of charge, to view and customize server settings such as RAM or disk space. 1&1’s app can be used with all current iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch devices.”
For mobile administration for 1&1’s Dynamic Cloud Server, users insert their 1&1 contract number and password once, and then view all relevant server details in real time. “The service menu is highly user-friendly,” say company officials, adding that this means server configuration options “can be adapted via an intuitive Control Panel, an up- or downgrade usually takes less than five minutes.” Data transfer is SSL encrypted.
Using the app, elements such as RAM, CPU cores and disk space can be adapted as required during the contract lifetime, “Should a server’s load change, perhaps as the result of an advertising campaign achieving increased website traffic, the user is free to raise their hardware capability accordingly,” company officials said. It is also possible to switch between Linux and Windows operating systems.
