Cloud Server: Features
Experiencing a surge in traffic? We charge by the resources you use - as you scale your cloud server up or down you are billed accordingly, and you don't pay for a server that is switched off and used purely for backup
Easy Management of your cloud
Our control panel is the fastest, easiest and most customisable way there is for you to provision and manage your cloud services. You can spin up new server instances, manage existing servers and scale resources on-the-fly. You can also control your cloud from your iPhone or iPad.
Automated recoveryWe constantly monitor the status of servers in the cloud, and employ an automatic failover process if a hypervisor becomes unavailable. Failover is initiated in 15 seconds if we receive no response from a hypervisor, and the virtual machines it hosts are automatically migrated to another suitable hypervisor in the cloud.
Server Template deployment
Our VM templates are pre-configured operating system environments that deploy in a couple of clicks.
Using templates can result in a significant reduction in the installation, configuration and maintenance costs associated with cloud management. You can rapidly provision new virtual machines by using our library of pre-configured templates - many of which are packaged for specific server roles.
We enable automated/scheduled backups and ad-hoc backups of VM data. VM snapshots are stored outside of SANs, allowing true disaster recovery in case of SAN failure. These measures ensure minimal impact to your business when using our cloud servers.
Integrated CDN We provide integrated access to a content delivery network (CDN) spanning 5 continents and over 140 locations to get your content close to your audience - allowing your website or apps to have a truly global presence.With HTTP push and pull, and dynamic and static caching support, there are plenty of ways to boost content performance.
