Tech Chat | How To Choose An Ideal Cloud Server For Your CORS Software?

With the popularity of CORS networks, there has been a surge in users worldwide establishing their own stations. Given that CORS networks necessitate 24/7 provision of differential services, its management software like our SingularCaster also requires 24/7 stable operation. Therefore, opting for a cloud server is recommended to provide the software with a reliable environment for long-term operation. In this blog post, we will delve into selecting the suitable cloud server, including considerations for parameter selection, assisting you in configuring and managing your CORS effectively.

1. Cloud Server Provider Selection:

Leading providers of cloud server in the market: AWS, Alibaba Cloud, Azure, Huawei Cloud, Google Cloud, Oracle Cloud.

2. Region Selection:

After choosing the provider, the next step is selecting the region of the server. This decision significantly impacts user latency and access speed. Generally, the closer the user is to the region, the lower the network latency and the faster the network speed. For personal usage, opt for a region near your own location. However, if the software serves customers, prioritize selecting a nearby region based on the concentration of your customer base. This ensures optimized performance and user satisfaction.

3. Configuration:

- Key parameters of a cloud server: CPU, RAM, Operating System, Storage, Bandwidth.

  • CPU: Dual-core, 1.7GHz or higher.
  • OS: Windows Server 2019 or later, 64-bit.
