HA Windows Cloud Server
"We make sure our HA Cloud Servers have Great Uptime by not relying on any single hardware component. If something breaks there is another waiting to automatically take its place."
The prices are great too as you only pay for the resources you need as the computing power can easily be increased or decreased to suit your needs. We started the company by building High Availability Cloud Servers. The High Availability features of virtualisation are what we named the company after.
99.7% up-time Guarantee, you will receive service credits if we miss a Service Level Agreement. The 99.7% figure relates to our Cloud Server Infrastructure, if you have taken an Operating System Support option different Guarantees may also apply.
