We believe the speed that matters is the day-to-day performance of your site, not just a speedy initial setup. So we’ve set up our Cloud VPS servers with 100% SSDs, and built a network that ensures rapid connection times and plenty of redundancy. Our mission: to make sure your sites load faster than ever — even more so when your visitors are UK-based.
Every server is hosted locally on the latest Samsung enterprise SSD drives, to remove common I/O problems typical with SANs and SATA/SAS storage.
Every server is using Hex core Intel CPUs with ECC memory. Further redundancy is provided by multiple power supplies.
Our connectivity is provided by multiple carriers on separate paths out of our datacentre. All servers are connected to the internet at a minimum of 1Gb/sec.
We've crafted a reliable, resilient SSD cloud
In building our cloud network, ensuring great uptime has been a big priority. Our dynamic, auto-healing cloud replicates your data across multiple nodes in real time. If there’s a hardware failure, Cloud VPS will automatically change hypervisors, keeping you running without any disruption.
Every VPS server is connected to redundant switches via multiple 1Gb ethernet.
Storage and backup networks use multiple bonded 10Gb optical connections.
We also provide a private network interface for non-public traffic between virtual machines.
Daily backups (30 snapshots stored) are available for an additional £20 per month.
Seamlessly manage your infrastructure
We think you should be in control of the way you use Krystals' Cloud VPS. So we’ve made sure everything scales easily and can be customised to fit. Pick your OS, from one of dozens we offer, or roll your own. Start with one machine and beef it up as you need or build a cluster and load balance them. Scale up, out or both. It’s your platform.
Our cloud utilises KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) which gives total flexibility in operating system choice, deploy CentOS, RHEL, Ubuntu, Fedora, Gentoo or Windows with a couple of clicks.
All of our VPS cloud servers have the latest hardware virtualisation features to compliment KVM.
We’ll support you if you need it
If you need that extra bit of help or just want peace of mind in knowing we've got your back, our UK-based support team are dedicated to keeping you in the cloud. You can add our managed support add-on to your VPS; it's easily selectable when you place your order. You can give the cloud experience a try today, risk free, and see if we fit your needs.
A clear and straightforward paid support option allows you to take advantage of the legendary UK-based support that Krystal is known for. £60/month which works out at approx £2/day, or by our coffee index 1 cup/day.
All customers benefit from our 60-day money-back-guarantee. If you’re unhappy for any reason, we’ll give you your money back with no questions asked.
Transparent, honest support
Our 100% UK based support is ready to assist...
We pride ourselves on offering a hosting support service like no other; polite, knowledgeable, fast and always ready to help.
Krystals' SSD Cloud VPS (Kloud) is a Virtual Private Server (VPS) environment and as such requires a certain level of technical ability to manage. This could be you, your company, a 3rd party IT company or us via our server management upgrade (see below). If you're just looking for shared web hosting to get a site or two online you'll probably be better served by one of our SSD Web Hosting or SSD Reseller Hosting plans as they come bundled with all the support and licenses you'll need.
We're a 100% UK-based team. All of our servers are located in our London datacentre, Netwise House. With 24/7 datacentre security, comprehensive CCTV, biometric access control, barbed wire perimeter fence, N+1 power and cooling & nn-site backup power generators.
An emphatic yes! It's ridiculously simple to upgrade your VPS. We've built Kloud to ensure that as your business/traffic increases, we can help you grow with it. We can scale up your single VPS with more resources (typically in less than a minute) or scale it out by moving to load balancing over multiple virtual machines.
Yes! We own all our own equipment, from servers to network and everything in between. That means that we're fully in control of the service we deliver. Lots of other hosting companies act as middlemen, renting hardware from the big boys and outsourcing the task of maintaining and running it. That’s not how we like to do things—we cut out these middlemen so that we can maximise performance and reliability.
We'll look after the hardware, replacing any broken components and also ensure power and network availability but Kloud servers aren't managed by default. However, our server management upgrade (available as you check out) adds your machine to our internal monitoring processes and we'll also install a suite of software that we've developed over a decade to help keep your server secure and in top working condition. We'll also help you with the setup of your server, configuration/tweaking of software and advise on migrating accounts.
All customers benefit from our 60-day money-back-guarantee. If you’re unhappy for any reason, all you’ll need to do is get in touch with our support team within 60 days of ordering, and we'll refund your hosting fees, with no quibbles at all.
