There are two main factors that make a dedicated server different from a cloud instance. Firstly, the machine's raw performance is different: there is no virtualisation layer consuming resources on a dedicated server, so you are guaranteed full use of the physical resources. The second difference concerns the level of server administration. With a dedicated server, you manage everything from its configuration to the data hosted on it, and you are also responsible for ensuring that it is secure.
With hardware firewalls as standard for all our servers, and an environment completely dedicated to you, a UKFast dedicated server offers the highest levels of security for your infrastructure. Combine this with our PROsecure™ security suite for even more peace of mind. Your dedicated server is built with the latest Intel CPUs and SSDs as standard. This, combined with a dedicated, uncontested connection into our 1.6Tbps network, means you are guaranteed the best performance possible for your server.
Our wholly owned data centres are managed 24/7 by expert technical engineers, meaning we guarantee a proactive response within 15 minutes. Owning every element of our infrastructure allows us to offer the best SLAs in the industry. With a hostuserver, you have access to your own account manager who knows you and your business, and your dedicated pod of technical specialists who know your solution inside out.
