In today’s fast-paced business landscape, managed service providers (MSPs) require reliable server management solutions to ensure optimal performance, security, and scalability. N-able’s team specializes in delivering comprehensive server management services tailored specifically for MSPs. We share an article by N-ables Head Nerd Jason Murphy, exploring the key benefits and features of their server management services, designed to empower your MSP operations. Hope you find the read useful!

1. Optimal Performance and Stability

At N-able, we understand that uptime and system availability are critical for your MSP business. Our server management service encompasses regular code drops, server upgrades, and round-the-clock server health monitoring. By leveraging enterprise-grade monitoring tools and automation scripts, we proactively maintain optimal system performance. Although we do not offer a formal uptime guarantee, our historical uptime record consistently exceeds an impressive 99.9%, ensuring uninterrupted service for your customers.

2. Scalability

As your MSP business grows, so does the demand on your N-central system. We recognize the importance of flexible resource allocation. With our server management service, we tailor your server’s size and resources to match the utilization of your N-central system. This ensures that your server scales effortlessly as your business expands, without incurring additional fees.

3. Robust Security Measures

Security is a top priority for any MSP. Our dedicated DevSecOps (development security operations) team is committed to safeguarding your hosted N-central servers against potential threats. We employ comprehensive protection measures, including advanced security protocols and continuous monitoring, to mitigate risks effectively. With N-able, you can have peace of mind knowing that your server is protected by industry-leading security practices.

4. Proactive Performance Optimization

We believe in staying ahead of performance issues rather than just reacting to them. Our team proactively optimizes the performance of your N-central system, working closely with our support and DevOps (development operations) teams to identify and resolve any potential bottlenecks. By continuously monitoring system metrics and implementing performance enhancements, we ensure that your N-central server operates at peak efficiency.

5. Analytics Integration

While our report manager feature is currently unavailable as a hosted solution, we are excited to introduce our upcoming analytics integration exclusively to our hosted partners. This integration will empower you with comprehensive data insights, enabling informed decision-making and improved operational efficiency. More to come on this in a future blog as we get closer to General Availability.

6. Effortless Backup Management

Managing backups and ensuring disaster recovery preparedness can be a complex and time-consuming task. At N-able, we take on the full responsibility for managing all your backups, guaranteeing that your server can be restored seamlessly in the event of a catastrophic failure. With our robust backup management protocols in place, you can focus on serving your clients while we safeguard your data.

7. Enterprise-Grade Monitoring Tools

To deliver the highest level of service, we leverage enterprise-grade third-party monitoring tools specifically designed for monitoring Linux webservers. Our monitoring systems are comparable to our previous Mothership monitoring systems. This ensures that your N-central server is constantly monitored for any anomalies or performance issues, allowing for prompt intervention and proactive maintenance.

8. Efficient Linux Automation

To effectively scale and manage thousands of hosted servers serving millions of endpoints, we leverage a trusted third-party Linux Automation tool for our hosted environments. This automation tool streamlines server management tasks, ensuring efficient and consistent operations across your infrastructure. With this solution, we eliminate manual overhead, reduce the risk of errors, and enhance the overall performance of your MSP operations.

9. Geolocated AWS Infrastructure

N-central has been meticulously optimized to operate seamlessly within our geolocated AWS infrastructure. This strategic choice allows us to deliver superior performance and security compared to on-premises virtual hardware in VMware or Hyper-V. Our internal benchmarking results demonstrate the advantages of our geolocated AWS infrastructure compared to that of on-premise deployments, providing you with a reliable and efficient platform to support your MSP operations. Ie. It just works better in our infrastructure.

10. Evaluating ROI and TCO—Making an Informed Decision

In the ever-evolving MSP landscape, making informed decisions about technology investments is crucial. When considering a transition to a hosted N-central architecture, it is essential for MSPs to conduct a thorough analysis of the Return on Investment (ROI) and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) specific to their unique circumstances.


When it comes to server management services for MSPs, N-able stands as a trusted partner, offering comprehensive solutions to optimize the efficiency, security, and scalability through our N-central server. With a dedicated DevOps team, robust security measures, proactive performance optimization, and reliable backup management, we ensure that your MSP operations run smoothly and seamlessly. Embrace the power of N-able’s server management services and unlock the true potential of your MSP business.
