If you are shopping for VPS hosting, you are shopping for hosting from 10 years ago! Cloud Hosting is the future of hosting, and where you should be investing your hosting dollars.

Virtual Dedicated Servers from GlowHost differ from our Enterprise Cloud Hosting products in their simplicity. Simply pick a pre-configured system from one of several recommended configurations, order it, and in minutes have full root access to your new cloud server.

A VDS or Virtual Dedicated Server from GlowHost is an array of many hardware devices that, with special software, offer higher performance than a VPS or even a dedicated server. We have a vast array of next-gen hardware powering our cloud, which means speed, speed, and more speed!

When cloud activity is high, your system will benefit because it has guaranteed minimum resource levels which other virtual machines cannot interfere with. When cloud activity is low, you get to use the extra resources that become available to the cloud, which means even better performance than what is guaranteed. VDS should not be confused with shared hosting, there is nothing similar about them. You have a 100% contained environment to power your web site and applications.

Unlike a dedicated server, our VDS can be ready in minutes not hours or days. And unlike a VPS, you have an army of machines powering your system compared to a lonely old standalone server. Our cloud hosting system is fully redundant at every level. Our cloud servers can sustain multiple hard drive failures, multiple server failures, network failures and something that almost no one else can offer, electrical failures. Our cloud is powered by two different electric grids that service the facility, so if one substation goes down due to lightning, or any other disaster or human error, your sites will keep chugging away. If both grids are down due to some catastrophic event, our datacenter is equipped with dual diesel fuel generators with enough fuel to power them until electrical service is restored.

Get started now and order your Cloud Virtual Dedicated Server.

Our latest advancement in virtualization technology allows you to have a fully redundant, High Availability (also known as "HA"), clustered cloud server solution guaranteed for five-nines uptime (99.999%) uptime. There may be other cloud solutions out there, but the infrastructure and price have no comparison to our high-end cloud hosting solution geared for enterprise.

Enterprise Cloud Servers from GlowHost offer the following benefits:

  • Elasticity:

The GlowHost Cloud hosting system is completely elastic, allowing you to add more CPU, RAM, disk space or network speed dynamically, and on the fly, no reboots or downtime required. Unlike Cloud VDS, your upgrades are not limited by predefined packages. You can also make templates to easily clone your OS, all settings, scripts and modules and deploy them instantly to newly generated virtual machines. How cool is that?

  • Scalability:
Add or remove resources to your cloud server as you need it, on the fly. No more need for multiple dedicated servers and complex configurations. We've built the complex hardware and networking configuration for you, and to you, it appears and operates as a single dedicated server, with several bonuses. No more downtime due to hardware modifications, upgrades or failure. All traditional hardware resources like CPU, RAM and disk space can be added on the fly. Now you can build yourself an ultra powerful hosting platform that scales with you, without the headaches involved in setting up your own hardware cluster.

  • Affordability:
High tech, low price. Now you too can afford enterprise grade hosting and compete with the big boys for a fraction of what you might expect. Get started with an Enterprise Cloud today for just $199 per month with no activation fees! Want to try a less powerful cloud to see how it works?
