High Availability

Downtimes could always happen even with the best infrastructure concept. In addition to DDoS-Attacks, power failures or hacked customer servers there are various reasons that can lead to interrupted services. We have a very own interest in everything running normally and without problems, because a failure also means stress for us. You can be sure that we are monitoring our whole infrastructure 24/7 from different locations spread around the world. In case a server having a problem, you can be sure that our NOC has already been informed about it and is currently working on solving the issue.

Please keep in mind that our VPS are not designed for high availability. Therefore we guarantee a minimum availability of 99.9% per year. That means that your VPS can be unavailable for around 9 hours/year. In case of a longer downtime please get in touch with us for a refund.

Depending on your infrastructure, there are advantages to choosing our VPS:

  • Sufficient bandwidth: Guaranteed 1 Gbyte
