Affordable dedicated server
To guarantee the best prices, Fog Hosting has chosen to keep only essential components and services. Fog Hosting servers are now sold both directly and via thousands of resellers, to customers across five continents.
Fog Hosting servers benefit from our datacentres located in North America and Europe, as well as the provider’s own global fibre-optic network with anti-DDoS technology. The Fog Hosting quality of service is approved by thousands of users.
A global fibre optic network
Fog Hosting servers benefit from the our global fibre optic network. No matter where you are when you access your Fog Hosting server, this infrastructure, with 33 points of presence (PoPs) spread across Europe, Asia and North America, guarantees you high bandwidth and optimum latency.
Our network uses active DWDM and has been migrated to 100G coherent technology. It thus offers you a total capacity of 3 Tbps to the worldwide web.
99.9% network SLA
Thanks to our technical partnership with Cisco, the routing infrastructure is largely built on Cisco devices and combines the expertise of the two companies.
Each set of links is fully redundant and is replicated at least twice. The fibre optic links are doubled (diversity) or even tripled (triversity), and 2 Cisco routers, each equipped with 2 routing cards, connect your Fog Hosting servers physically to the internet.
A rigorous verification procedure
In order to provide our customers with quality servers, every Fog Hosting machine undergoes a series of technical compliance and performance tests, under all possible conditions. Prior to delivery, a robot verifies that the hardware matches what the customer has ordered and that its performance meets the specifications.
We will check:
The processors (conformity, load test, temperature)
The RAM (size, memtest)
The BIOS (BIOS version, virtualisation)
The disks (speed, S.M.A.R.T, firmware version, etc.)
If an error is detected, one of our technicians will replace the faulty hardware on the machine.
Hardware guaranteed for life
If your Fog Hosting server goes down, you will automatically receive an email stating the time that the incident was detected. Our technicians are on site in our datacentres 24/7 and will take control of the machine and launch the diagnostic. We will keep you informed and update you when we start working on your server. We will send you a full report as soon as the incident has been resolved.
