All our virtual machines use full virtualisation. This way we can offer a variety of different operating systems that would not be possible with container technologies alone.
Every data block of every virtual machine is saved three times on three different computers. This way if one or even two storage nodes fail at the same time, no data is lost. The underlying technology we use is CEPH.
We also offer creating special backup VMs in a geolocation different data center so that even in a disaster case you still have a backup of your data.
It is easy to start small and to grow your VM over time. And you can grow quite far: You need 64 cores in one VM? We have it. You need 1 TB of RAM in a VM? We have it. You need 1 PB (1024 TB) Storage in your VM? You get it.
As you might know, all our data centers are built upon the principle of sustainability. We reuse old factory halls, we acquire used hardware (with fresh SSDs and fresh HDDs), we produce our own electricity locally.
And importantly: we don't cool our servers. Instead we give each server enough space to breath (on average: 4 square meters).
We have two different virtual machine offers:
The difference between them is that the IPv6 Only hosting comes without IPv4 addresses and has a lower pricing. The lower pricing comes from the scarcity of IPv4 addresses: there is only a very limited pool of IPv4 addresses.
Both offers include an optional /64 IPv6 network that you receive on request and both offers can also be extended with HDD storage for 2 CHF/month per 100 GB storage.
