(The Hosting News) – Leading web hosting provider, Fasthosts Internet, www.fasthosts.co.uk, has today announced the launch of two new dedicated servers. Featuring the latest SSD technology and now with quadruple the SSD space on the flagship DS1210, the latest configurations mean customers benefit from fast application launch times, backup solutions as well as an overall increase in performance.   Available half price for the first 3 months, prices for the professional range start from £84.50 per month ex VAT.

Dedicated Servers are the ideal solution for IT professionals and businesses that require robust server operations for both web and IT applications. Fasthosts’ Dedicated Servers offer a powerful and secure server platform without the capital expenditure or the physical space required for running on premise solutions.

Fasthosts’ servers enable customers to find a balance between budget and technical requirements. Fasthosts advanced series offers great value for small businesses whilst the professional series are designed for ultimate speed, processing power and stability for small to medium-sized businesses.

The most significant changes to the new range are mainly focused on the HDD (hard disk drive). The new servers feature the latest SSD (solid state drive) technology, meaning the drives are more robust, resilient and allow for quicker read/write times. With four times the SSD space as previously, additional benefits include backup solutions for safer data storage options.

Ben Wallace, Director of Digital Media, of drpgroup, one of Europe’s leading communication and production agencies, spoke about the challenges he faced and how a Dedicated Server with Fasthosts met their business requirements and augmented growth.

“With a growing global client base, we needed a hosting provider that could ensure a high level of performance, reliability and security, as well as an ability to be managed by our in-house team of developers. Fasthosts dedicated servers were chosen as they provide a customisable platform for us to host our clients’ websites and applications, as well as support the varying level of traffic received and meet the team’s requirements for self-management and flexibility.”

Starting from £124.50 per month ex VAT for the first 3 months, and £249.00 per month ex VAT thereafter, the 24-core DS1120 offers 32GB RAM, 2 x 250GB SSD and 2 X 1TB SATA HDD.

Available from £174.50 per month ex VAT for the first 3 months and £349.00 per month thereafter, the 32-core DS1210 offers a massive 64GB RAM, 2 x 500GB SSD and 2 x 2TB SATA HDD. Further savings are available for annual payments.

With a guaranteed 99.99% network uptime, both the DS1120 and DS1210 are perfect for business critical applications or to host large websites, mail or media, ensuring you and your customers get the best performance.

With no large CAPEX commitment, the DS1120 uses 2 x 2.1GHz AMD OpteronTM 12-core processors to deliver powerful, energy-efficient performance, meaning intensive programs can be run simultaneously without the need to slow down. The DS1210 boasts 2 x 2.1GHz AMD OpteronTM 16-core processors for more power and those with more technically demanding projects. Users also enjoy guaranteed access to unlimited bandwidth, and retain complete hands-on (KVM) remote control of their server at all times.

Fasthosts Dedicated Servers also include a free SSL certificate for the first year, as well as the latest Parallels Plesk Panel 11, for simple and easy management of your server. Currently, all Fasthosts Windows Dedicated Servers are provided with 50GB of free Online Backup space.

Especially important for business users, all servers have a 100Mbps connection and there are no additional bandwidth bills to worry about whatever the level of demand on your server. Every Fasthosts server is maintained with the latest operating system updates to maximise efficiency and security. Technical support is provided 24/7 from the UK via the phone or online.

For those not sure which specification would best fit their business needs, Fasthosts offers a free consultancy service to help customers find the right solution.
