Virtual Servers (sometimes called Virtual Dedicated servers or VPS/VDS) are ideal for companies or individuals that want their own bespoke and private server environment while still keeping costs low. We achieve this with VMWare which enables us to install multiple completely independant operating systems on a powerful shared hardware platform. The end result is a virtual server that looks and feels like a dedicated server so much that even the operating system doesn't know it's virtualised.

VMWare Virtual Servers benefits include;

— Your choice of operating system
— Full root and Administrator access
— Dedicated CPU, memory, and hard drive space
— Completely independant and private
— A dedicated server feeling with reduced costs

Dedicated Servers are ideal for companies or individuals that need a lot of performance behind their applications or services. Instead of sharing your resources with other users, you get the entire server to yourself to do exactly what you want with.

Dedicated Servers benefits include;

— MASSIVE dedicated processing power
— Reduced slowdown from heavy IO or peak time usage
— Your choice of operating system
— Full root and Administrator access
— Dedicated CPU, memory, and hard drive space
— Completely independant and private

Dedicated servers come in all shapes and sizes but the key things to look out for when browsing are decent Processors and proper hardware RAID with SAS/SCSI/SSD. All servers we supply are from Dell and come as standard with proper hardware RAID and Xeon CPUs.

Server Colocation is ideal for companies or individuals that want not only their own private environment but also their own personally configured hardware. Our colocation hosting allows you to bring in your own server and host it in our secure vaulted data centre.

Server Colocation benefits include;

— Complete freedom to host on whatever hardware you want
— Remote power reboot and KVM over IP facilites
— Up to 64amps per 42u cabinet with no weight restrictions
— Hands on technical support when you need it
— Access to your server 24 hours a day

Our colocation packages are charged per amp of power in combination with the unit height of the server. Please get in touch for a quote.

Our remote backup facilities are able to capture anything from designated folders to entire operating systems which can be scheduled for any time, day or night and even multiple times a day. We can further tailor this to keep multiple snapshots that be stored for as long as you like and for added peace of mind, we also offer a offline backup solutions where your data is stored completely offline in a 4 tonne steel safe.

Features of our remote backup;

— MASSIVE capacity both for storage and bandwidth
— Instantly restore files to their original location
— Completely active process for maximum security
— Facilities for completley offline backup storage
— Seamless integration with Windows, Mac or Linux

The Environment

By increasing server density per rack and using a combination of free air cooling and carefully separated hot and cold zones we're able to feed in naturally cool filtered air from outside and pump the warmest air directly back out. This allows our air conditioning system to operate at a minimal capacity during our cold British winters which gives you the best performance to price ratio in the industry and the result of our lower costs is fed directly into our offers.

Efficient hosting with lower overheads saves the environment and lowers costs.

Our efficient hosting environment allows us to generate extremely high performance from the lowest resources possible but we haven't stopped there, we're actively purchasing woodland right here in the UK to help offset our carbon footprint.

Our Secure Data Vault

We are a privately owned and completely secure data centre facility housed in an insurance specification bank vault. Our data centre is secured with multiple layers of both online and physical security including hardware perimeter firewalls, biometrics, multiple independant alarms, and of course, a massive vaulted chamber with 15inch thick steel laced concrete walls and an unhackable mechanical vault door weighing over 2 tonnes.

Ultra-secure data centre in a bank vault.

Each 42u rack cabinet is equipped with dual 32amp managed and monitored PDUs that are connected to two completely separate power sources providing up to 64amps of redundant power per cabinet. We have multiple line providers already on-site and our infrastructure includes Cisco routers and switches, hardware perimeter firewalls, QoS bandwidth management, multiple central and dedicated UPS backup units, redundant air conditioning, GSM SMS based environment and uptime monitoring and redundant 3-phase generators keeps everything running even when the worst happens.
