CIT offers application hosting on servers running the Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system. Customers can choose from the following Linux hosting options:
- CIT-Managed Virtual Machines (also called VMs or virtual servers)
- Customer-Managed VMs
- Dedicated Physical Servers
Linux Virtual Machines
Linux VMs provide a flexible, lower-cost option for customers who don’t need the resources of a dedicated physical server. With virtualization, customers get their own VM that runs securely and independently on a physical server with other VMs. The VMs are separate but share the resources of the physical server or a pool of physical servers.
CIT offers customer-managed VMs and CIT-managed VMs. For more information about Linux VMs, see the Linux Virtual Server Service page.
Dedicated Physical Linux Servers
CIT also offers dedicated physical Linux servers, which are housed in a secure, centrally supported hosting environment. The service includes managed storage and backup. Additional options include SSL certificates, network security architectures, application firewalls, shared and dedicated load balancers, and central web and database services.
For dedicated physical Linux servers, CIT provides the following CPU and memory configurations:
- 2 CPUs (4 cores per CPU), 8 GB memory
- 4 CPUs (8 cores per CPU), 64 GB memory
- Initial storage space: 146 to 300 GB. Additional space is available in minimum increments of 25 GB.
