Our dedicated servers are really dedicated cluster nodes. You get all of the benefits of the cluster with a node dedicated just to your site. Or if you're not quite ready for a full dedicated node, we offer semi-dedicated nodes. Semi-dedicated nodes are provisioned with one client per processor core and per gigabyte of RAM. It's like a VPS without the management headaches and resource limitations.
Load Balancing and Server Fail-over all-in-one!
Since your dedicated node is actually part of the cluster, we route a small percentage of your traffic to the shared nodes in the cluster. So you're getting more than you asked for. It's like having 1.1 dedicated servers. And if your node becomes saturated with traffic, the shared cluster picks up the slack!
Sometimes hardware fails. It's a fact of life. But you can rest assurred that since your dedicated node is part of the cluster, the rest of the shared cluster serves as your automatic backup. If our load balancers detect that your node has become unresponsive, all traffic will automatically route to the shared nodes on the cluster, and your site won't miss a beat. Sometimes we unplug a dedicated node just for fun! Just kidding - really!
Note: All servers are provisioned as dedicated nodes within the cluster unless client specifically requests a NON-CLUSTER configuration. In our cluster configuration we do not permit root access, while we do permit root acces on non-cluster configurations. Backup software licensing fees will apply for non-cluster configurations.
