Dedicated servers for Big Data with SAS drives
Information is the most important tool for forecasting and developing a marketing strategy. But Big Data is more than just information. It can not handle by ordinary servers. It is a whole process that involves data collection, processing and storage. Skillful application of Big Data allows you to accurately predict your company’s development and adjust accordingly to the upcoming trends. Our servers have all the necessary components for processing and storing Big Data datasets. Stay one step ahead with Unihost!
Manage the current customer base, fill it with new clients. Keep the entire list of purchases and make sales forecasts. In business related to cloud technologies, Big Data processing algorithms are used to calculate the minimization of cost of attracting a customer. Unihost Big Data servers are the ideal solution for identifying strategies for improving the conversion rate and optimizing the customer’s lifecycle.
Data on customers is an asset to rival your finances and material possessions. If it is properly collected, stored, processed and interpreted, you have every chance to get a pool of loyal customers and increase your profits. But it requires a lot of computing power. The technical characteristics of the Unihost Big Data servers allow you to automate data processing for BI and CRM systems.
It is not humanly possible to process all the data, find patterns and relative correlations in seemingly unrelated assets. But neural networks make it possible — with enough processing power, of course. You can use this information to systematize your data further and forecast the demand, sales volume, average check, sales frequency, equipment loading to determine the necessary amount of cash, storage and other resources. Create yourself an ideal assistant with Unihost.
Debian / Ubuntu :
The above software is selected during the formation of the rental order for the dedicated server. At the end of the installation and activation you will get access to the server to your email, with the operating system already installed on it.
If this software does not suit you, you can install any proprietary software, using the help of our administrators, or independently through your personal cabinet or IP-KVM / iDRAC access.
All Big Data servers can be united into a single cluster — an array of logically-connected servers that process the same request and are overall used as a single resource. At any given moment you can purchase another server and add it to the same array to increase its performance and available storage space.
Based on the horizontal scalability principle, you can make a correlation that a cluster is a combination of several servers. Both datacenters are equipped with backup power supplies, additional powerlines and diesel electric generators for the force majeure situations. Unihost technical support team consists only of top-level specialists. You can be sure that your servers will work 24/7.
Data stored in large systems are distributed in a fairly large number of machines. We provide the best transmission speed and do not limit the traffic. All servers from the Big Data line-up are provided with an unlimited Internet channel at a local network speed within a 10 Gbps cluster in the France and Canada and 40 Gbps in the Netherlands.
We understand how important it is to store and receive data your company’s data 24/7. That's why we offer only the hardware of the most reputable and proven brands: Intel, Dell, SuperMicro, Seagate, Samsung, Nvidia, Kingston. All equipment complies with international quality standards and passes a mandatory check before installation on the servers. Be sure that your data will always be safe with Unihost.
This option allows you to run monitoring, restore the control functionality, journaling and inventorization which are available independently from CPU, BIOS and the OS. These features are available even if the system is offline.
Pick from the best data centers in France, Canada and Netherlands to get the lowest latency from your target audience to your resource. All servers are connected to the main European Internet channels and have high-speed channels to USA and the CIS countries.
It is highly important to transfer painlessly, keeping all data and servers’ settings to keep working unobscured. That’s why our support team will help you transfer a project from Unihost with installation and setup.

Each client gets Basic server management, but if it’s not enough — we are always ready to help out with more complicated tasks and round-the-clock monitoring available in our Managed packages.
All servers in France and Canada have an option of installing a separate hardware firewall made by Cisco. Protect your services from any hacking attempts with Cisco ASA 5505, ASA 5510 or ASA 5520. Using a simple graphical interface, you can set it up the way you want it to be.
All servers are located in the best Canadian, French and Netherlands’ datacenters, built according to the Tier IV standard. Our uptime is 99.9%, which guarantees maximum performance and stability. In case of any issues, the data will be immediately transferred to a different server via the drive hot-swap.
When you purchase the server, you can pick the bundle with the necessary software, or install a virtual machine manager to create an unlimited amount of virtual machines, including a virtual desktop infrastructure. Store, systematize and process all the necessary information in a single Unihost ecosystem.
Processing large amounts of data demands both a lot of computing power and a fast internet channel. That’s why we offer a channel with up to 3 Gbit/s in France and Canada, and a 10 Gbit/s channel in Netherlands. All data centers have a low-latency connection to Europe, USA, Canada and the countries of CIS.
Each server gets an ISPmanager 6 control panel (market price — 7€ per month). ISPmanager is a complete analogue of cPanel and allows you to manage a server without a terminal, via a neat web interface.
A dedicated server is one of the most powerful hosting options available. A dedicated server means it is exclusively for you, so you don’t have to share your dedicated resources with anyone else.
Linux server – via an encrypted SSH connection.
Server with Windows OS – via RDP.
We provide for free ISPmanager 6 Lite control panel to each server (market price — €7 /mo). If ISPmanager 6 is not suitable, you can purchase another panel – cPanel, Plesk. Full list is available in shopping cart.
By default, we offer a dozen Linux distributions, Windows Server, several dedicated control panels and some other software. You can pick it either in the cart during the purchase or in the Unihost Client Area. You can also install any software you want, except for any that may harm the server itself or other Unihost servers.
Yes, it is possible to order additional IPs. You can learn more about the pricing on additional IPs for the servers in the Client Area or during the purchase procedure.
For detailed information, please contact online support.
Yes, you can order both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.
RAID is a technology that allows you to combine the storage drives into a single array, which helps to prevent data loss if one of the drives gets broken. RAID comes in various kinds:
Software RAID means that the repartitioning will happen at the OS level, while Hardware RAID repartitions the drives before the OS is even loaded. The latter is more reliable and fast since the server doesn’t have to waste resources to manage the RAID structure. Besides, Hardware RAID is the only option that can survive the OS reinstallation.
You can reboot it from the Client Area. While there, you can also check the server’s stats and reinstall the OS. If for whatever reason you can’t do this, contact the Unihost support.

All our data centers correspond to Tier 3 or Tier 4.
Depending on the server configuration:
Standard configuration – 1 to 5 business days.
Non-standard – from 5 to 15 working days
We are working only on a prepaid basis and the minimum server order period is 1 month. We also offer payment for 3, 6, 9 and 12 months. If you need a server with a different billing cycle (for example, 2 or 5 months) please contact the sales department, and we will issue a new invoice.
There are no limitations. You can use the server for any number of websites, e-mails, domains etc. We provide complete access to the server at the root level.
Invoices on the service renewal are issued automatically with an email notification. Invoices are issued based on the billing cycle.
Billing cycle – Date of the invoice issue
You are able to add funds to a prepaid account in Personal Account . In this case, the funds from the prepaid account will be automatically applied to all newly created service prolongation invoices.
