Information

About the Product

Cloud Servers are virtual instances which offer a great deal of flexibility. There are no resource limitations on the underlying infrastructure, thus cloud servers can be scaled easily and without performance losses. In combination with root access, every customer can use their cloud server infrastructure according to their individual needs.

More about Unmanaged Servers
Root Server
Root Servers are – in a nutshell – VMs or Dedicated Servers to which our customers have root access, which stands for full admin access. Virtual Root Servers are more or less the same as Cloud Servers. However, they are not yet self-servicable. And a Root Dedicated Server is also more or less the same, but on bare metal – in other words, there is no pre-installed software, i.e. an operating system.

A Root Server therefore combines the advantages of Dedicated and Virtual Servers, has clearly defined dedicated resources (RAM and CPU) and can be expanded with additional storage – if needed. The hard disks are accessed via superfast hardware RAID and the server is as easy to manage as Virtual Servers. However, it requires administrative knowledge of server systems.
Cloud Server
A Cloud Server is a centralised server resource pool that is hosted and provided via a network – usually the internet – and can be accessed by multiple users on an as-needed basis. Cloud Servers can perform the same functions as conventional physical servers and provide processing power, storage and applications. 

Cloud Servers can be located anywhere in the world and provide services remotely via a cloud computing environment. In contrast, traditional dedicated server hardware is usually set up on-premises for exclusive use by a company.
