We are incredibly pleased to announce the long-awaited release of our overhauled Cloud Servers!
Our VPS offering has come to feel a little clunky and outdated over the last few years. Whilst our existing platform has proved incredibly stable, we were running our virtual server nodes on somewhat legacy hardware, which we will be phasing out within the next few months.
The new platform has been built on the same hardware as our incredible 'B-Cloud' environment that runs our shared hosting platform - powered by 100% NVMe storage, DDR4 ECC RAM, and AMD EPYC Processors; this is quite the uplift which will introduce significant performance and stability benefits to our cloud server / VPS server plans!
The existing platform had several flaws, which we wanted to iron out as part of introducing our new cloud server platform. We are pleased to confirm the new systems are live and operational - we have been swamped behind the scenes getting ready for launch!
So, what's changed?!
Well, it's probably easier to say what hasn't! We have overhauled every aspect of the platform, introducing the following new benefits...
AMD EPYC CPU
100% NVMe Storage
New Pricing Plans
A completely new User Interface / Portal for managing Cloud Servers
Windows Server 2019 / 2022
General Purpose Servers
Our general purpose plans have been designed to suit a wide range of workloads and environments, from as little as just £5 per month.
We have been bombarded with requests from clients who require more extensive plans than those offered, which only allowed us to scale up to 2TB of storage and around 24 CPU cores.
Our new Enterprise Servers now offer scalability up to a whopping 256GB RAM and almost 4TB of NVMe storage!
Suitable for any workload or environment, our platform is now a cost-effective home for your most prominent projects and servers.
Cloud Server Portal:
OK, hardware improvements are fantastic, but how about a more granular platform that allows you to spin up, destroy, and resize servers instantly? We got you!
Deploy your virtual infrastructure in just seconds using our incredibly intuitive portal. Create, resize, and destroy servers from a single, easy-to-use interface. Choose from one of the available Operating Systems, or deploy from one of our pre-built applications/templates.
Instantly Deploy Applications:
It is now possible to instantly install pre-configured installations of applications and control panels, such as cPanel or Plesk.
Team Members and Collaboration:
You can now invite additional users to your projects, allowing them access to either all or a restricted set of your cloud servers.
Organise your servers into 'Projects'. Move servers between projects, and remove them when they are no longer required.
Secure, off-site backups are available for your cloud servers at the click of a button, and can be scheduled daily, weekly, or monthly. Backups are an additional charge of just 20% of the cost of the server.
SSH Key Management:
Usage Reporting and Graphs:
See instantly and in real-time the usage of any cloud server.
In the event of a disaster, you can boot into a recovery ISO to manage your server. You also have control over power management, password reset, and instant access to your server's console.
Resize your Cloud Instances:
Need additional resources temporarily? Now you can scale your cloud server to an alternative plan in just a few clicks!
To get started, click the new 'Manage Cloud Servers' option from within our client area...
From there, you will be provided with the option to view the terms of the service, and once accepted, you will have access to the following portal...
From this interface, you can see an overview of any active servers you have and can also click directly through to the Cloud Portal to create, manage or destroy any machines.
Oh, did we mention?!
On our previous VPS platform, provisioning time for a server took around 5-6 minutes. The new platform, a newly deployed OS, takes as little as 17 seconds!
We hope you love using the new platform as much as we have enjoyed getting things ready! These are some very welcome, fantastic additions to our tools and services.
