• Reliable and Secure Hosting Infrastructure

      Fully redundant servers

      All Cloud VPS instances are safeguarded by an enterprise grade Storage Area Network (SAN) that provides data integrity in multiple ways. Each storage group on our cloud is setup in pairs with real time replication and hot fail-over capabilities between the units. If a failure ever takes place, your data will begin serving from the standby replicated unit seamlessly with no danger to your data. Additionally, each storage group also leverages RAID-50 protected arrays to handle drive failures gracefully with no downtime. We go a step further and provide off-cloud daily backups of all Cloud VPS instances, ensuring that if disaster ever does strike, for you or us, we can have you back online in no time flat. The security of your data is crucial to us and we don't take any chances with your data.

    • Kernel Virtual Machine (KVM)

      Our Cloud based VPS is powered by Kernel Virtual Machine (KVM) virtualization technology. KVM is a hardware virtualization technology, this means the OS emulates hardware to your guest (VPS) instance, providing for a fully virtualized environment and a far wider range of supported operating systems. In a KVM based VPS, all RAM, disk and processor resources are completely dedicated which means that they are always available to you when you need it. Therefore a KVM based VPS will behave like a true dedicated server with a near complete isolation of processes and user accounts with predictable, dedicated, performance.
