Cloud/server design, construction

Beyond service information

Throw away everything about the cloud/server

Cloud/server configuration patterns vary depending on the specifications and functions of the services and applications required by the customer. Beyond provides a complete set of custom-made cloud/server environments that

We define detailed cloud/server design, including selecting and implementing clouds/servers and platforms such as AWS, GCP, and Azure, and designing the OS/middleware to be installed, subnets, and security policies

We will build the infrastructure based on the designed cloud/server configuration. After the cloud/server construction is complete, we will provide you with login information for the cloud/server and a set of parameter sheets

Additionally, if data is to be migrated from an existing system environment, we will carefully identify bottlenecks in the system and points and precautions to be taken during system migration to avoid as many problems as possible after the system migration.

We carefully listen to and understand the current state of your cloud/server, explain the advantages and disadvantages of each, and then work with you to consider the optimal cloud/server configuration pattern

What kind of applications are the services provided by Beyond suitable for?

What kind of applications are the services provided by Beyond suitable for?

Web services such as games, apps, EC sites, media sites, and digital content require speed and flexibility, and are suitable for companies that operate services that are directly linked to sales, and for content development and management. This is probably suitable for companies that want to concentrate, or companies that do not have a server administrator in the first place.

Additionally, there is a tendency for companies facing such issues to outsource their services to MSPs (managed service providers) like Beyond, which specialize in cloud/server construction, operation, maintenance, and monitoring.

Please tell me the comparison and differences between cloud servers and physical servers.

Please tell me the comparison and differences between cloud servers and physical servers.

Comparisons and differences between cloud servers and physical servers (on-premises) include the following features:

Characteristics of cloud servers
Safety ・Since the hardware infrastructure (server/network) is redundant as standard, there are fewer service outages due to hardware failures.
Operational aspect ・You can immediately build a server, add more servers, and improve specifications without choosing the location of the server.

- The server can be scaled out for high load access.

Price aspect ・Since most cloud services charge a pay-as-you-go fee for the amount of data transferred, monthly costs fluctuate.

・Service fees for overseas cloud services, such as AWS, GCP / Azure / Oracle Cloud, etc., fluctuate monthly due to exchange rates.

merit - Resources can be added as needed and in the amount needed, making it easy to add resources.

・Even if the server configuration is the minimum configuration at the time of cloud introduction, specifications can be increased or decreased after the service starts.

Demerit - Since the hardware infrastructure and configuration are black boxes, it is difficult to determine the cause and evaluate performance when a failure occurs due to hardware.

・Since the amount of data transferred is pay-as-you-go, the cost of monthly service usage fees may increase.

comprehensive evaluation ・For web services and systems where the access load to the server changes suddenly, such as games and apps / EC sites / media sites / digital content, the cloud is suitable because it can quickly respond to resource additions and scale-outs.

・When it comes to cloud reliability, most cloud services are audited annually by internationally recognized third-party auditing organizations to provide assurance regarding security, privacy, and compliance controls.

Characteristics of physical server (on-premises)
Safety - Since the data is stored in a physical environment, the location of the server is clear.
Operational aspect - Machine resources such as servers, firewalls, and load balancers can be monopolized by one company, making it easy to customize as a unique system according to the company's requirements.
Price aspect ・Although initial installation costs are required, monthly costs are often fixed, so monthly cost management is stable. However, there are indirect human costs that are not visible, such as infrastructure maintenance man-hours, data center rack costs, electricity costs, and hardware manufacturer maintenance updates.
merit - Because it is exclusively owned by one company, it is not affected by other users' systems.
- Performance of machines and resources such as CPU/memory is clear.
Demerit ・There is a risk of server outage due to physical hardware failure.
・It is difficult to improve the specifications of hardware resources.
・When initially introducing hardware, it takes time to size and estimate the system.
comprehensive evaluation ・Since server machine/hardware resources can be used to the maximum, when developing a mission-critical system that does not go through the external Internet, a physical server can maintain stable and high performance than a cloud. I can.

・In performance evaluation compared to cloud services, some studies have shown that the performance results are more than three times higher.

*Beyond does not design or construct on-premises (physical server) infrastructure environments or provide on-site support.

Please tell us about the strengths, features, and areas of expertise of your service.

Founded in 2007 as the server division of a mobile content provider that boasted "more than 8 billion page views per month" at the time of its founding, the company has continued to steadily advance step by step to this day, focusing on physical server hosting and housing services. We have a history of doing so.

Because of this historical background, Beyond's cloud/server construction, operation and maintenance, and system development is focused on designing, building, and developing cloud/servers for large-scale web services such as games, apps, EC sites, media sites, and digital content. We specialize in migration, 24/7 operation maintenance/monitoring.

Based on the knowledge and technology of infrastructure construction and operation to date, we support scaling and parameter tuning of large-scale infrastructure environments ranging from dozens to hundreds of machines.

In addition, in order to respond to rapidly changing markets and needs, BEYOND has formed partnerships with many cloud vendors, both overseas and domestic, so we can provide multi-tasking services for the construction and operation of various clouds and servers.
