Dedicated and Virtual Cloud Servers main features?
Explore the main features of our dedicated and cloud server solutions below
Dedicated Firewall Included
Every cloud server we provide has the protection of a dedicated firewall which allows only authorised traffic and filters
out all unauthorised users from accessing your cloud server. For security, access to the firewall management portal is only
available via your cloud server.
In addition to firewall protection you can further increase security measures with two-factor authentication. Every time a
member of staff/user requests a login a 6 digit code is sent to their mobile phone for verification. Any attempt to login
to your servers will be denied without the correct username, password and authentication key.
All cloud servers operate on a high performance fibre based, solid state 3PAR multi-node storage cluster which is replicated
across multiple data centres in the UK guaranteeing the highest hardware availability. Network availability is guaranteed at
Fully Bespoke Cloud Server
You can choose a 'pre-packaged' server or you can build your own bespoke one to your exact requirements. You are able to
specify the number of cores, amount of memory and SSD storage prior to setup. Specifications can easily change as your
Increase Efficiency and Agility
By moving your servers to the Mitol Perfect Backup cloud you can centralise your business systems and applications to a
single easy to manage environment. Members of staff will be able to access the systems and work from any location.
Reduced Management Costs
You will no longer need to buy hardware, pay to power it or for air conditioning to cool your servers. Fast costly internet
connections are no longer required. The need for data backup is removed so the cost of an online backup service or local tape
hardware/storage/software is completely negated.
Existing Image Importing
If you are already running your existing IT infrastructure in a virtualised environment you can easily export and import
into our cloud environment. Add any number of images to your servers using your IONOS Cloud Panel to secure them for the
long term. There is no minimum contract. Cancel anytime.
Best Price in UK
If all factors are taken into account such as replicated 3PAR storage, SSD data disks, clustered servers, included daily backup,
unmetered bandwidth, multiple data centre replication, dedicated firewall, management portal with KVM access and 24x7 support
we are convinced that you will not buy the same solution at a better price in the UK.
UK Data Centres
All Mitol Perfect Backup cloud server infrastructure is UK based in data centres owned by Equinkx. Equinix currently own 220
data centres in over 60 markets on five continents and connect enterprises, networks, services and innovators from Mumbai to
Dublin, Singapore to Chicago and Helsinki to San Jose.
To ensure maximum uptime, DDoS protection is a must. They are most common at the Network (layer 3), Transport (Layer 4),
Presentation (layer 6) and Application (layer 7) layers. Our DDoS mitigation system offers protection against layer 3, layer 4
and layer 6 as standard.
Some cloud providers offer a dedicated server which is by definition dedicated to your needs, i.e. a virtual environment built specifically for you but
resides on shared or multi-tenant hardware. Here at Mitol PerfectBackup our dedicated servers are physical servers purchased and built specifically for
you. You are able to legally whatever you require, build your own multi server virtual environment or set up a web host for example.
All our servers are HP so depending on your requirement we would usually supply a DL360, DL380 or DL560 server. Many storage options are also available
in addition to local, such as direct attached, NAS and SAN.
Virtual Servers - Let go to the Cloud
A Cloud server is a cost effective scalable solution which sits in a secure virtual container on a cluster of hypervisors. Each hypervisor provides compute
resources such as CPU and RAM to the virtual machines. Storage is provided by a highly available fibre based enterprise grade 3-par storage area network.
Maximum flexibility and agility is achieved as these resources can be scaled up or down on demand or as required.
As cloud servers have less reliance on physical hardware, high availability options and backup of a virtual server becomes very easy enabling total
failover, full server restore or and single file restore to be completed extremely quickly.
Dedicated and Virtual Cloud Servers Frequently asked questions
Yes, a dedicated firewall is included with each server or group of servers. You are able to connect and manage your firewall directly from your
cloud server. Full dertails are provided at the time of order.
Yes, your server is backed up every night and backups are stored for 28 days. The backup frequency can be increased to hourly if required and
may be stored for whatever period of time you require. Please contact sales for more information.
In the case of data loss it is possible to restore at file level or at virtual machine level.
Yes, multiple servers connected via an internal infrastructure is the norm. An example is domain controller, RDS server, file server and
