Definition of Odoo server management

Odoo Server management can be defined as the tasks and services that are done on a server in order to make sure that Odoo services, applications and databases keep on running reliably and risk-freely. 

This entails:

  • Monitoring  of the server and apps running on the server. Checking their status, uptime, and monitoring for any new or recurring issues.
  • Updating  the server and software installed on the server. Although most server management companies offer this as part of their services, some still don’t. Nevertheless, it’s still considered as part of the ‘server management’ process.
  • Setup  and configuration. The actual server setup and configuration of software and services running on the server.
  • Other . Any other server management services.

Odoo Services Include:

  • Hardware Server scoping
  • Ubuntu and Postgre System software
  • Installations and configuration of system software and Odoo Software
  • Server monitoring
  • Performance management
  • Backups
  • System software upgrades
  • Odoo/Ubuntu workers management
  • Odoo/Ubuntu cron jobs monitoring and management
  • Odoo Mail Server integration management.
  • Disaster Recovery Planning
  • Security Management

Benefits of server management services

  • You should always leave the server work to professionals that do it on a daily basis as Odoo Gold Partners. We have the experience, skills, and know-how of managing servers. That way you get your peace of mind knowing that your server is managed properly by people who know what they are doing.
  • Fewer costs.  Instead of hiring a full-time system administrator (which can be quite costly, and often you cannot find the right resource), you can get a server management plan and save thousands of dollars on a monthly basis. Some server providers offer a ‘managed service’ as an add-on to their servers, such as STC, Mobily, ITC, etc but it often is much more expensive than getting managed services from an Odoo Gold Partner.
  • Fewer worries.  Why should you worry about the updates and security of your server 24/7 when you can have Odoo experts taking care of your server? No need to stay updated on the latest security patches and releases, your server will be taken care of us.
  • Quick (er) turnaround time. Depending on the provider itself and the experience of the sysadmins involved, the turnaround time for server issues and tasks is fairly quick. So instead of wasting hours on troubleshooting and research, you can have experts work on your server and fix any issues in a matter of minutes. This still depends on the severity and complexity of the issue itself, but when compared, having expert server managers working on your server is far quicker than doing it yourself.
