Main Features of InMotion VPS
Apart from the amount of RAM dedicated to the server, InMotion offers additional RAM bursts for unexpected memory usages. The unexpected memory usage may occur when the server load increases or on other occasions. The extra RAM is dedicated to the server on a temporary basis, and helps avoid slowdowns or degradation of server performance.
InMotion understands the importance of critical data and offers backups for your VPS server’s contents. They backup the servers every 24 or 36 hours for accounts under 10GB. Backup solutions are also available for accounts larger than 10GB, if needed.
InMotion offers cloud servers at two locations in the United States, and you can choose either data center based on the target audience for your site. The western server is best for targeting Asia, South Pacific, Australia and New Zealand; whereas the eastern server is suitable for Europe, South America and Africa.
This VPS provider offers CentOS, the robust enterprise level Linux-based operating system to run your servers. The sixth version of CentOS is used, which is critically acclaimed to be a very good option for server farms.
