Dedicated servers are meant for customers who need their own server but don’t want to buy and manage server hardware themselves. Customer rents a whole server that is not shared with anyone else. The advantages of a dedicated server over cloud solutions are higher performance, security, stability and control over the server hardware and operating system. Dedicated server offers significant financial savings when running applications that demand higher than average server resources.
Server hardware. We use HP blade servers that have excellent quality-price ratio and are housed in our HP C7000 Blade centers - hardware characterized by high quality and availability. Failure of one network card or PSU does not affect server operations because all critical components are duplicated.
HP Bladecenters are housed in our data center located in Tallinn, Estonia. Bladecenter chassis is powered by six redundant power supplies that are connected to different UPS units. UPS units receive power from different feeders that are in turn protected by a diesel generator.
Bladecenter’s duplicated 10GbE network interfaces are connected to Cisco Nexus 5000 series switches.
In addition to servers we also rent Cisco network equipment starting from simple switches for smaller companies up to routers appropriate for telecommunications operators.
