Nov 03, 2010 (02:11 PM EDT)
GLOUCESTER, England, Nov. 3, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Fasthosts Internet Ltd, a leading web hosting provider, and Technology Sponsor of The Great Exhibition 2012, today unveiled its most powerful server to date and a first for the UK dedicated server market - a 24 Core Dedicated Server. Currently offered half price for the first 3 months, Fasthosts' Dedicated Servers offer enterprises a powerful and secure server platform and far greater flexibility than on-premise solutions.
A Dedicated Server is the ideal solution for IT professionals and businesses that require robust server operations for applications and data storage without the capital expenditure or the physical space required for running hardware 24/7 on their premises. Fasthosts servers use the latest Intel and AMD processor cores to deliver powerful, energy-efficient performance, meaning intensive programs can be run simultaneously without the need to slow down. Users enjoy guaranteed access to bandwidth, and retain complete hands on (KVM) remote control of their server at all times.
The flagship Fasthosts DS 1100 server solution delivers a market-leading performance via its 2 x 2.1Ghz AMD Opteron 12 Core processors, 32GB RAM and 2 x 300GB SAS + 2 x 500GB SATA hot-swappable hard disk drives. Fasthosts' Cisco switching technology allows users to add multiple servers to create their own secure private network. Fasthosts also includes free SSL certificates for the first year.
Andy Burton, CEO Fasthosts Internet Ltd, said: "Our DS1100 server is a fine example of the excellent business case for outsourced dedicated hosting - enterprises receive the best possible performance, protection for their data and business continuity, whilst paying only a fraction of the cost of buying their own hardware. This new hardware based Dedicated Sever range complements our high spec virtual server solutions which we launched earlier this year, providing our partners and customers with real choice in platform, specification and price."
Fasthosts Dedicated Servers are available with either Linux or Windows operating systems and boast an impressive range of standard features, including full admin control and root access, fast SAS drives and RAID 1 protection, Fasthosts' unlimited bandwidth and 100Mbps high-speed virtual data pipe. Every Fasthosts server is maintained with the latest operating system updates to maximise efficiency and security. Technical support is provided 24/7 from the UK via the phone or online.
Later this month, Fasthosts will launch a new Advanced Server Monitoring service that provides its dedicated server customers with automatic updates on their server resources and the performance of the applications and databases they have deployed via text message or email.
Businesses are assured that Fasthosts guarantees 99.9% or higher server uptime. Servers are located within the company's state-of-the-art UK data centres, where all operations are protected against compromise by hardware, power or network failures or unapproved site access.
