A dedicated server alternative
Ownership has its privileges
But there are also drawbacks. As dedicated server hardware ages you may find yourself in need of a boost in resources that your box can't accommodate. Then there's time and money spent installing, updating and maintaining software, and making sure your server is secure. If you need to expand to a second (or third) server, maintenance and costs also multiply. And hardware being hardware, eventually something will fail. When your server goes down, how long are you willing to wait for it to come back up?
If you use an Everleap Reserved Cloud Server as an alternative to your dedicated server you can enjoy flexibility and scaling options that are - at best - difficult to achieve on a dedicated box. Everything is fully managed, and always up to date and secure. And it's all included in your plan.

Sometimes dedication is a good thing
If you absolutely need remote access to the server or special configuration, your dedicated server is probably not something you are not in a hurry to part with (we may be able to accommodate your special configuration, ask us!). But if you don't need complete control of the server, using an Everleap Reserved Cloud Server as an alternative to your dedicated server can save you time and money, and give you back a little peace of mind.
