Hardware exclusively provided by HP

HP supplies all of our servers and components and every piece of hardware in our systems is enterprise class. Real, enterprise servers are built to run 24/7 for years on end, without failure. By comparison, desktop computers and components are only designed for a 40 hour per week run time and have a much higher failure rate.
When you order one of our servers, you know you're getting the best hardware out there, with no compromise.

A brand new server in 60 minutes

Build your dedicated server just like you want it: 6 or 96 GB of RAM, SATA or SAS hard drives, 1 or 2 processors, quad-core or hex-core. As soon as the machine activates, you will receive the access information via email and will be able to connect to your new dedicated server. We've timed the process almost a hundred times and it takes on average 53 minutes.

KVM over IP access - 24/7

iLO4 allows you to manage the server remotely, even when the machine is turned off. Similar to KVM over IP, iLO4 empowers you to:
  • Reset the server or turn it on/off at any time, right from the browser, without any assistance
  • Install an OS - the drive of any PC can be connected to the server through iLO4 as a virtual drive and you can even mount and access .iso files right off the internet, without having to download them
  • Interact with the server from any browser, as if it were the PC in front of you and make any software changes you need, without ever having to contact our support team
  • Record videos of access sessions that used iLO4 so you can always check what changes you made and where

Internet connectivity

  • guaranteed network availability of 100%, (specified in SLA)
  • graphs for traffic consumption and bandwidth occupancy
  • upload/download capacity of over 40Gbps
  • total transfer capacity of up to 400 Gbps
