RoundHouse Worries About Your Servers So You Don’t Have To

Whether we are biting off more than we chew or our eyes are too big for our stomachs, we as humans often find ourselves underestimating the total of the requirements to complete a specific goal. In startup culture, this kind of mistake can be fatal to a young business, so before you find yourself unexpectedly overwhelmed, make sure you investigate the different ways to make life easier on your fledgling company. One of the largest headaches that comes with launching a Web startup is managing servers and ensuring the smooth sailing of the back-end, and RoundHouse – a brand new managed server support solution – wants to take these worries away for startups.

Regardless of what host a startup uses, RoundHouse can provide full system management and support, including performance monitoring, security testing or any other task the startup requires. The company will also help startups get set up with servers by installing libraries and binaries, configuring server software and firewalls, and implementing backup tools. Finally, RoundHouse can also provide both support in the event of downtown or usage spikes and access to specialists for various advanced requirements.

One reason startups may find these offerings valuable is that it’s not an all-or-nothing service. Only need some initial consulting? RoundHouse can get your servers up and running with all the bells and whistles and you can take over from there. Need some night and weekend administrative shifts covered? RoundHouse can provide that too.

If your small startup team lacks a technical co-founder with system administration experience, RoundHouse could be an excellent temporary solution. That being said, technical startups with more expertise are likely better off handling their own server administration. Also, startups should be aware that RoundHouse is taking a very focused approach to server management, with an emphasis on developers. With that, RoundHouse is not providing support for mail servers or intranet services, but with solutions like Google Apps, startups can find other easy ways around this.

During the early stages, startups need to be focused on building our their product and attracting a community of users and customers to it. By providing server maintenance, set-up and support, RoundHouse intends to lift these concerns off the shoulders of developers who should be otherwise busy ensuring that their end-user product is top-notch.

While it is an added cost to hosting plans and other early startup expenses, RoundHouse’s support offerings seem to be an excellent solution for startups in the beginning stages. Once a company takes off and starts expanding, it is likely that it will want to bring its own administrators on staff if it doesn’t have them in-house already. RoundHouse launched its service just a few weeks ago and is now currently seeking flagship clients that are interested in the company’s offerings.
