1&1 Virtual Server Cloud: virtual server on a new platform

State-of-the-art server technology with cloud advantages for a low price

1&1 (www.1and1.com), the leading web hosting provider in Europe and one of the largest hosters worldwide, renews its virtual server portfolio. With the 1&1 Virtual Server Cloud, 1&1 now offers virtual servers based on the powerful 1&1 cloud platform. The new server offering benefits private users and freelancers who are looking for a simple, easy-to-use server solution at an attractive price. 1&1 offers the Virtual Server Cloud with pre-configured resources, providing packages from S (1 vCPU, 512 MB RAM, 30 GB SSD-Storage) to XXL (4 vCPU, 8 GB RAM, 160 GB SSD-Storage). The packages start at a price of $4.99 per month.

 

“Our cloud platform’s success, and the feedback on it, are great. That is why 1&1 gives even more customers access to this powerful infrastructure,” explains Robert Hoffmann, CEO 1&1 Internet SE. “The new virtual server provides beginners with the best possible performance, in combination with the easiest handling, at a very attractive price.”

 

Cloud advantages for Virtual Server customers

With the launch of the new infrastructure, 1&1 shares many of the Cloud platform’s advantages with its customers. This includes the most high-quality components currently in the market, and dedicated resources enabling customers to use the booked performance whenever they want. 1&1 solely uses VMware’s virtualization technology for its servers—along with modern Intel Xeon processors and 100 percent SSD SAN storage, which are more reliable in protecting the system against downtime and significantly faster than traditional systems. The new 1&1 Virtual Server Cloud features cPanel and Plesk as software for server administration.

Security is one of the 1&1 Virtual Server Cloud’s most important aspects. To protect their infrastructure, customers can define individual firewall rules to grant dedicated access to their server.

The 1&1 Cloud Server’s ease-of-use has been transferred to the 1&1 Virtual Server Cloud by running the administration of the 1&1 Virtual Server Cloud via the well-structured Cloud Panel. Its intuitive user interface makes it easy for beginners to manage their server components. Leveraging the cloud technology’s most significant attributes, the Cloud Panel can be accessed anytime, from anywhere.
