A monthly audit is carried out to ensure that eNlight complies with all necessary regulations and legal requirements, as well as to ensure that ESDS is continuing to provide a quality service. Some of the activities that form part of this monthly audit include:
The service level agreement (SLA) is in place to guarantee legal compliance where possible. If there are any conflicts then this will also provide a number of different options.
All data in eNlight Cloud will be hosted on servers located in our data centers in the India (Nasik / Mumbai).
Enterprise storage devices, such as SAN (Storage Area Networks) are used for the storage of data in eNlight Cloud. SAN represent one the of the most secure storage options available. Additional layers of security are provided in a multitude of ways including:
Using Tier 3 data centers, ESDS can guarantee upto 99.99% uptime with the eNlight Cloud. Redundancy is provided right down to the rack level with there being back-up measures in place in the event of power of network supply failure.

We have developed eNlight Cloud around three layers of isolation, with these being:
The following arrangements are in place to protect eNlight hosting nodes and eNlight VMs from external threats:
The performance of Virtual Machines in eNlight Cloud is monitored consistently by the platform. eNlight Cloud platform keeps and generates log for each operation and activity that is done on the server. This helps in overall server monitoring and keeping the server healthy. In addition, all the control panel activity logs are available in the Client Area section for future review.
eNlight Cloud has many unique features that makes it a distinct managed cloud solution, We have seen before highlights of updated version of eNlight VMM-2.1.1 it was all in general about updated version of eNlight. In this post we will see all about billing section in eNlight, starting with:
Now, let us see in detail about billing section of eNlight cloud
With eNlight Clients get complete transparency of their utilization and costing, customer satisfaction is the most important objective of us. In eNlight billing section you could see complete detailed usage of eNlight with charges applied. You can actually check usage of an hour in a day.
Steps that can be followed to track the eNlight billing section:
Licenses in the form of Addons needs to be purchased separately as required for specific VM, it can be for example: Antivirus, cpanel license, etc.
Under the Resource graph of eNlight that will be downloaded from the previous steps, we can view all the activities like resource utilization, charges applied and it is very easy to understand with complete transparency of charges. Things that we can view with the help of Resource graph in eNlight are:
This data makes the billing system of eNlight very transparent and user friendly
eNlight has very user friendly interface that makes very comfortable to top-up eNlight balance, you will just need to login to your client area and follow the below steps :
You can check paid invoices by clicking “View Invoices”
Note that we can monitor resources using eNlight cloud mobile app too, it makes handling eNlight more comfortable and user friendly. To know more in detail find the post on “How to manage eNlight cloud for beginners?”
Swap file partition is the conception that glues only with Linux servers; it is not used with Windows server. Windows operating system comes altogether with complete single partition, whereas, Linux operating system has separate swap file partition. Swap space also known as virtual memory on Linux server plays very important role in system performance. When the server runs out of memory, the kernel can move inactive processes to swap to make space for active processes in the working memory.
Swap file partition need and optimization
The question is do I really need swap partition and will it really affect my system performance. Yes! Swap file partition can add up to your system performance if optimized and used in a proper way. Swap literally provides a way to run new application, if the memory has gone full. Below are advantages of Swap file partition:
The use of swap space can be controlled by altering the system’s swappiness value, it is recommended to be ‘1’ for Linux VMs running on eNlight Cloud Platform.
open /etc/sysctl.conf file and put the following entry : vm.swappiness = 1
Then apply the changes using the following command : sysctl –p
Increase in Swap file partition
Before increasing the Swap space on the server, it is necessary to check for enough free space available on the partition atleast larger than that of Swap size. Follow these simple steps for successful increase in swap space.
Step 1:- #dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=1024 count=1572864 : This command creates the free space for file /swapfile to 1.5 GB
Step 2:- #mkswap /swapfile
Step 3:- #chown root:root /swapfile
Step 4:- #chmod 0600 /swapfile1
Step 5:- #swapon /swapfile1
Step 6:- #vi /etc/fstab : enter this at the end of file “/swapfile1 swap swap defaults 0 0”
Step 7:- # mount -a or free -m (check swap file size for your confirmation)
There you go! Your increased Swap file partition is ready.
