Cloud Servers from GlowHost are hosted on the legendary GlowHost Cloud which is housed in our secure SSAE 16 Type II data center located in Salt Lake City, Utah in the USA. Our latest virtualization technology allows you to have a fully redundant, HA (High Availability), clustered server solution guaranteed for greater than five-nines uptime (99.999%) uptime. In fact, our technology is so well proven that we offer a 100% uptime guarantee on our cloud services.  We guarantee and can actually deliver less than 5.26 total minutes of downtime per year with our Enterprise Cloud Hosting solution. Since 2015, our cloud has not experienced a single minute of downtime, which are better figures than both Amazon cloud and Google cloud! The GlowHost Cloud hosting solution is completely elastic, allowing you to add more CPU, RAM, disk space or network speed on the fly, no reboots or downtime required which is something you simply cannot do on a regular dedicated server.
