Dedicated Servers

When you have requirements beyond the facilities of shared hosting, dedicated servers give you the performance, security and flexibility you need for your business applications. Whether you are a web designer looking to grow beyond reseller hosting or a business looking to host an intranet, run applications such as SharePoint or replicate internal network functionality off-site for telecommuters or backup purposes, a dedicated server could be the answer.

Unlike many providers, our network is designed without compromise using the latest equipment, so our dedicated servers are genuinely servers you can rely on. We refuse to use “bargain basement” equipment, instead sticking with the tested and advanced features of industry leaders like Juniper and HP. Our advanced network security also gives you the peace of mind that the traffic reaching your servers is filtered for likely attacks. Our dedicated servers are provisioned using HP’s Bladesystem technology for improved performance, reliability and management, coupled with lower power consumption compared to normal rack servers.

We can customise your options so that the server you get is exactly right for you, and are able to advise if you aren’t sure what you’re looking for or how powerful a server you need. Let us know your requirements and we will be happy to provide you with a fully personalised quote to get you up and running with your ideal server package. Request a quote today.
