For many web hosting customers, managed virtual private servers provide the perfect balance of generous resources and reasonable pricing, making VPS hosting the preferred choice for the mid-range segment. The steady demand for virtual hosting has generated a massive growth in the industry, and today, customers have dozens, if not hundreds of potential providers to choose from. The competition is generally beneficial for the customer, however, the wide selection of offers makes it difficult to identify quality providers. As a result, customers are often reduced to relying on chance when selecting a hosting provider.
One good way to find a good managed VPS hosting provider is to opt for companies that use the most reputable tool in the industry, the VMware virtualization suite. Moreover, to ensure that your VMware server is in good hands, look for a managed VMware web hosting provider that employs certified professionals, preferably server administrators that have received training and certification from VMware.
