Fasthosts Internet, a Web hosting provider, has introduced a 24 Core Dedicated Server in the UK.
Fasthosts said its Dedicated Server featuring new Intel and AMD processor cores offers enterprises a secure server platform and flexibility than on-premise offerings.
A dedicated server caters IT professionals and businesses that require robust server operations for applications and data storage without the capital expenditure or the physical space required for running hardware 24/7 on their premises.
The Fasthosts DS 1100 server offering delivers performance via its 2 x 2.1Ghz AMD Opteron 12 Core processors, 32GB RAM and 2 x 300GB SAS + 2 x 500GB SATA hot-swappable hard disk drives.
Fasthosts’ Cisco switching technology allows users to add multiple servers to create their own secure private network and it also includes free SSL certificates for the first year, the company said.
Fasthosts Internet CEO Andy Burton said Fasthosts DS1100 server is a fine example of the excellent business case for outsourced dedicated hosting – enterprises receive the best possible performance, protection for their data and business continuity, whilst paying only a fraction of the cost of buying their own hardware.
"This new hardware-based Dedicated Sever range complements our high spec virtual server solutions which we launched earlier this year, providing our partners and customers with real choice in platform, specification and price," Burton said.
Fasthosts Dedicated Servers are available with either Linux or Windows operating systems and features full admin control and root access, fast SAS drives and RAID 1 protection, Fasthosts’ unlimited bandwidth and 100Mbps high-speed virtual data pipe.
The servers are located within the company’s UK data centres.
