External backups
All servers come with a mounted backup drive which writes to our off-server storage system.
This drive is used within the server for nightly cPanel backups where daily and weekly archives are stored with monthly archives also possible to enable if enough space is available on the drive.
 
Fully managed & Monitored
Our full management covers everything that comes with the server along with optional features such as caching, extra PHP/Apache modules and much more. We will look after all server administration, updates and maintenance along with monitoring 35+ services 24/7 allowing you to sleep well at night knowing your server is in safe hands!
 
Spam Protection & DNS Clustering
All Cloud Servers are configured on our email and DNS clusters taking the resource usage of these services off your server and on to our clusters. This also brings extra redundancy and resiliency to the services.

10Gbps Networking
With mirrored storage and storage area networks, the speed of the network can be the bottleneck at other providers using standard 1Gbps networking. We have safeguarded against slow internal networking by using super fast 10Gbps internal networking on all hypervisors and storage nodes along with category 6 shielded network cabling.
 
Hardware Redundancy
A major benefit of our Cloud Servers is the hardware redundancy whereby if a hardware node should develop a problem, all Cloud Servers hosted upon it will seamlessly migrate to a different node without any downtime or adverse effects.
 
Enterprise Hardware
We only use enterprise level hardware for our cloud services including SSD drives as standard, dual hex-core CPU’s and 64+ GB RAM in each hypervisor. We are confident that the hardware we are using is the best for the job with no expense spared.
 
Litespeed Web Server
