Miniserver VM® VPS Packages - Our Public Cloud server solution

We have a range of Miniservers available. In 2002 we created the Miniserver Virtual Machine, since then they seem to have caught on.

In that regard we have been selling and supporting Cloud servers well before the word Cloud was even invented. Every Miniserver Cloud Server comes with its own dedicated and unshared resources in terms of RAM, CPU and disk space and for operational functionality is identical to a dedicated server. Our Public Cloud estate is powered by hundreds of Dell Servers with either Quad or Hex core processors and we typically have no more than 15 Miniservers running on each host machine for performance, redundancy and risk mitigation.

What is a Miniserver VM® Cloud Server?

Being a great advocator of open standards we use Xen Hypervisor to divide a single physical Dell server into many smaller Virtual Cloud Servers each with their own dedicated resources.

Using Xen Open Source for the virtualisation layer also means that we don't have the high licence costs of software like VMWare so we don't have to pass on any charges to customers in that regard.

Although several Miniserver® Cloud Servers may exist on one physical server, they are as secure as if they were separate machines on the same network, and the resources are partitioned in such a way that one virtual machine's activities cannot negatively affect the others.

Our Xen architecture has passed both ISO27001 security accreditation and also CESG IL2 accreditation for government.

Miniservers can be upgraded or downgraded using the "self-service" tools on your account and we can seamlessly change your billing to reflect these changes.

Why use Miniserver VM® Cloud Servers?

As most IT professionals know, most servers currently in service either on premise or hosted only need access to a higher amount of resources for some of the time.

That is where a Miniserver VM® Cloud Server comes into its own. You get all the benefits of powerful server resources when you need them, but cut the cost by sharing those resources when you are not using them (which is most of the time).

As well as being able to upgrade and downgrade those resources on demand, the technology allows us to give you other facilities such as mirrored disks at no additional cost and Solid State Disks(SSD) for those requiring dedicated server like disk performance.

Miniserver Cloud Servers are also available on a "pay as you go model" per hour or on a more traditional monthly rolling contract for those seeking a more fixed cost model

What is a Miniserver VM® Snapshot?

Our snapshot feature allows any customer with a Miniserver Cloud Server and Memstore™ to take a complete copy of their server and store it on their Memstore™ account.

This is particularly useful for disaster recovery, storing multiple copies of your server or adding additional servers to an existing cluster or deployment.

You can create additional servers from an existing snapshot image either with the PAYG or monthly Miniservers at point of ordering.

Technical Support Options

All the basic prices of the Miniserver Cloud Servers are for our Infrastructure Only SLA, where we are responsible for power, connectivity and networking only.

If you need assistance with managing your Miniserver VM® then you should consider our Infrastructure Assisted or Managed Platform SLAs.

Will my Miniserver integrate with my Memstore™ Account?

One of the main advantages of having all of your hosting with Memset is that data transferred between your Memset servers and Memstore™ is free-of-charge and sent internally over a gigabit connection within our datacentre.

Although Memstore™ is a Cloud Storage framework it also offers customers a Content Delivery Network to cache and serve static content. Please view the Memstore documentation for more information on this.

Does my Miniserver come with persistent storage?

Absolutely, we offer persistent storage by default giving you a nice sense of certainty about your data.

When you launch a cloud server with Memset, the virtual machine and storage are persistent, with data being stored on regular disks, or SSD if you require high speed input/output. This storage is managed with traditional hardware durability strategies (RAID) and, thanks to the abstraction layer provided by our cloud platform, it is completely transparent.

Additionally we offer the option of taking snapshots of this storage and storing them inside an object storage system, based on clustering technology, that guarantees three copies of each object in different failure zones. This is particularly useful for disaster recovery, storing multiple copies of your server or adding additional servers to an existing cluster or deployment.
