Hardware Options

For maximum flexibility, you can customise your server to meet your requirements.

Your servers processor determines how quickly it will process instructions.

The faster the processor you have installed, the quicker your server will perform.

In conjunction with the processor of a server, the memory is also of relevance to the performance of the server.

The more memory you provide for the server, the less it will need to swap items in to disk (it's swapfile) and as a result the server will perform faster.

The hard disk is where the operating system and all programs and storage files are stored on the server.

The items of note are size and speed. The larger the disk, the more room is available or your own files and the faster it is, the less time the computer will need to wait to access files therfore contributing to overall system performance.

SATA Disks are slower than SSDs. SSDs have no moving parts and are lightling quick.

This is the first (Main) hard disk in the system. Note that if you only choose one disk there is no redundancy in case of disk failure. We recommend two disks and RAID 1 (mirroring).

This is the second second hard disk in the system. While optional we do recommend RAID 1 and two disks. Note if you select RAID 1 then the disks must be the same type and size.

RAID 1 allows you to mirror the contents of one drive to another to allow protection in the event of a disk failure. Note: RAID 1 will require the selection of at least 2 hard disks of equal size (above)

O.S. & Software Options

Your server will need an operating system (either Linux or Microsoft Windows) and you may need additional software such as a database system or control panel. You can choose these options below.

What operating system would you like on your server? All OSes are 64-bit.

Your choice of operating system will reflect how you will manage your server and the software that you will run on that server.

Two types of operating system are listed, Linux and Windows.

Note: Under the new Microsoft licencing rules if you plan to run virtualised operating systems on Windows 2012 you must licence Data Center Edition or otherwise licence each virtualised operating system.

Would you like a control panel for your server?

A control panel can simplify the administration of your server for website hosting.

If you require a database system installed on your server select it below.

If you need Microsoft Remote Desktop Services access for more than 1 concurrent user then you will need Additional Licences.

Connectivity and Network Security

You will need IP addresses and connectivity for your server as well as firewall protection.

All servers are connected to our highspeed resiliant network, choose how much bandwidth you require in total.

How many IP Addresses do you require? Blocks larger than 5 (/29) will require justification, please specify this in the "Additional Notes" section.

We protect your server as standard with our own firewalls. If you require a dedicated hardware firewall instead.

A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) represents a significant threat to any online business. Our advanced DDoS protection, provisioned as a service at the network edge, matches the sophistication and scale of such threats, and can be used to mitigate DDoS attacks of all forms and sizes. As the leading network availability solution for the vast majority of global Internet service providers (ISPs) and many of the world’s largest enterprises, the Arbor Networks Peakflow solution offers proven DDoS protection and broad network visibility.

Management and Data Security

Choose how you will mnage your server and protect your data.

A KVM Over IP allows you to access your server as if you were sat directly infront of it with a keyboard, monitor and mouse. A Dell iDRAC has the further advantage of fully integrating with your server so that you can access low level functions such as the BIOS and also enables you to mount remote media to your server, as well as providing all of the normal KVM functions.

Protecting your server with a server anti-virus product is a must to ensure your server does not get infected by malware from web sites you may access or files that are uploaded or downloaded to your server.

Without server management, our staff will only look after hardware and networking issues with the server.

If you choose "Basic server management", our technical team will be able to assist you with general operating system issues on your server.

Our "Advanced server management" option will allow you to have our technical team install software on your server and perform advanced maintenance.

Make sure your server data is protected. Our online backup service enables you to create a backup schedule and choose the data to backup. From that point on your data will be backed up accordingly and will be aviable for you to restore at any time.

Our Continuous Data Protection (CDP) Service is a near continuous backup solution provides the ultimate server protection. On first backup a full backup is taken of the chosen data, which can be a selection of files to a full system image. Then at selected intervals the system replicates changed data providing snapshots at each period in time. By default this creates hourly backups for a day, daily backups for a week and weekly backups for a month. If more frequent backups, up to a maximum of 15 minutes, and with retention of up to a year are required this can be quoted for seperately.

If a restore is ever required the data can be selected from any of the backup points. This is a fully managed solution, monitored and maintained by Hosting UK engineers.
