VMhosts Cloud Hosting Benefit 3. 100% uptime is simply a myth, even the largest organisations such as Facebook, twitter, Amazon, and Microsoft Azure will have problems from time to time.

During the unlikely event of any server down situations we are contactable 24/7. You can talk to a real engineer who can give you accurate updates.
Enterprise grade VMware Platform

Private internal Network
VMhosts Cloud Hosting Benefis 5. Every customer gets a private internal network free of charge. A dedicated VLAN, protected by our firewall appliances. This provides a secure network for internal server communications such as tiered applications, with unmetered internal bandwidth on our 10Gb network.
Raid 10 Clustered storage array
VMhosts Cloud Hosting Benefit 6. Storage is absolutely critical for any cloud service. Some providers will cut corners to lower costs. We use a HP branded clustered storage array. We use local Raid protection and synchronously replicate this to a second storage appliance. When it comes to your data it is good to be paranoid.
Geographically distributed database centres
VMhosts Cloud Hosting Benefit 7. We have two datacentres located in Maidenhead and Enfield, separated by over 30 miles as the crow flies. With multiple low latency Gigabit interconnects between the two locations we can help customers build mission critical business solutions with extreme levels of availability and protection.

Our auto tiering solution is fully transparent. All of your data and applications will benefit with absolutely no additional configuration or changes to your server environment.
High Availability as standard
VMhosts Cloud Hosting Benefit 9. All our virtual machines and virtual appliances are protected by VMware HA and other proactive availability features such as vMotion and Storage vMotion. Our cloud solution isn’t a VPS reliant on local storage. We have multiple 100% synchronous copies of your data allowing us to automatically recover and power on your machines in the event of hardware failure.
