Dedicated servers for Big Data with SAS drives
The line of dedicated BigData servers provides the ability to store large amounts of information and process them as quickly as possible. This is true for large Internet resources, which in their work use the latest systems of Business Intelligence and CRM. Both systems are focused on the analysis of unstructured information about the operation of the enterprise, its profitability, interaction with the client base. The received results allow to make various business decisions extremely effectively and in a short time to react to any changes in the work of enterprises.
The technical characteristics of the BigData servers allow the automation of data processing for BI and CRM systems. All servers are equipped with two 4 TB Enterprise Class hard drives, to which RAID data virtualization technology can optionally be used to back up information. Due to the fact that the servers are located in large modern data centers in France and Canada, information about your project as soon as possible will be available in almost any country in the world. Absolutely free professional protection Anti-DDoS will protect your Internet resource from any attacks from unscrupulous competitors. Your business reputation will be impeccable, and business – profitable!
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. All you need is to write a request to [email protected] and fill in the credentials necessary for the server access, as well as a complete technical request with the necessary OS, software and additional modules.
Our tech support team is available to you 24/7. Write your question, call, or contact us in chat with any question you may have and we will help you. 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 Premium 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 5 control panel (market price — $3 per month). ISPmanager is a complete analogue of cPanel and allows you to manage a server without a terminal, via a neat web interface.
Each server comes with an ISPmanager 5 Lite control panel. If you wish to use any other panel, you may take your pick from cPanel, Plesk, ISPconfig, OwnCloud or Minecraft Game Server. Check out the detailed list in the server’s cart or contact our support team.
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, we allow OpenVPN on our servers.
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.
Hybrid SoftRAID is a combination of HDD and SSD in a RAID array. It is faster than a pure HDD array but falls short of the performance provided by the pure SSD storage.
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.
No. Unihost dedicated servers are located in secure facilities and we cannot grant free access to the servers due to the possible risks. Only people who have direct access to the servers are our certified employees tasked with maintenance, and even their access level depends on the tasks at hand.
Usually, you can’t. We can transfer the storage drives with the data you need if the upload takes too long, but direct colocation is not a service we generally provide. You can, however, discuss it with our support, and we may consider your case an exception.
All our hardware is routinely tested. If any component fails, we will replace it with an identical one, covering all bills.
Not all configurations support a direct upgrade, but some line-ups, i.e. PowerEdge do. You can get more details by asking our support team.
In France, Canada and Poland you can order up to 256 IPs per server, with a maximum amount of subnetworks being 64. The payment is single-time, there will be no monthly bills.
In Germany you can order up to 37 IPs per server (a subnetwork of 32 IPs with a /27 mask, 6 subnetworks of 1 IP each and a single dedicated IP). There is an installation fee, as well as a monthly payment. If you need more IPs in Germany, you’d have to purchase an IP pool.
In Ukraine you can order up to 11 IPs per server (10 IPs in a subnetwork with a /28 mask and a single dedicated IP). There is both an installation fee and a monthly payment. There is no option to purchase an IP pool in Ukraine.
In Russia and Netherlands up to 64 IP addresses are available for ordering. Payment for these IP addresses is made monthly.
You can learn more about the pricing on additional IPs for the servers in the Client Area or during the purchase procedure.
The easiest way is to write to [email protected] from the email you used to create the Unihost account and ask which IP should be added to which domain.
All our data centers correspond to Tier 3 or Tier 4.
Traffic between the server and the backup storage, as well as traffic between two servers in the same data center, is considered internal and does not count towards the limits.
It depends on the location of the server:
France, Canada, Poland, Russia and Netherlands — up to 12 hours.
Germany — 1 business day for standard configurations. If the server configuration is non-standard, we may need up to 5 business days to provide it.
Ukraine — from 1 to 5 business days.
If you have not gone through the full account verification, we will postpone the provisioning until you complete the procedure.
You do not need documents to order a server. But if you intend to pay with a card or Paypal for the first time at Unihost, you need to go through a full account verification, which requires a passport or any other government-issued ID.
One month. We also offer billing periods of 3, 6, 9 and 12 months. If you require a different billing cycle — for example, 2 or 5 months — you will have to contact the sales department to review your case.
For some configurations, there is an option to order a server for a week.
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.
Date of the invoice issue
You can also generate an invoice yourself in Unihost Client Area, under the Product Management tab. There you can also change your billing cycle, provided that there are no unpaid invoices for this service. If there are any, you need to pay them first (or ask our support to cancel them) and then generate a new invoice with an updated billing cycle.
The account is set at the beginning of the selected billing period. The invoice for payment can be downloaded in the basket and the Unihost Personal Area.
