Tampa, FL, 04.12.2022Hivelocity, the leading Bare Metal Cloud Company, is pleased to announce its partnership with Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company. As part of Hivelocity’s continued mission to provide the best of both the cloud and bare metal, its new partnership with Wasabi means data processing customers can now combine leading high-performance compute with secure, lightning-fast and low-cost cloud storage to power the most demanding workloads, including video file processing for the Media and Entertainment industry

With many industries moving to hybrid and multi-cloud workflows to find the optimum balance of performance and price for their infrastructure needs, the Hivelocity-Wasabi partnership presents a compelling alternative to the monolithic offerings of the hyperscale cloud providers. A key element of the Hivelocity-Wasabi partnership is that data transfer between compute and storage is “zero-rated” to provide a unified offering with no ancillary fees. Hivelocity also offers leading Nvidia GPU processing to power the most demanding applications such as big data analytics and media transcoding, edit and render.

By combining the superior resources of a true bare metal solution with the dynamic scalability of the cloud, Hivelocity’s Bare Metal Cloud solutions offer users greater performance at a fraction of the cost. Featuring 36 world-class data centers across 4 continents, which is the most offered by any Bare Metal IaaS company, Hivelocity is bringing the advantages of the Edge to users around the world. Now, by partnering with Wasabi, Hivelocity customers can easily and affordably store an unlimited amount of data with direct access to powerful compute resources. 

“Giving our customers the ability to quickly and easily add object storage to their bare metal with infinite scalability is our latest achievement in Hivelocity’s Alternative Cloud Alliance initiative”, said Hivelocity COO, Steve Eschweiler. “By partnering with best in class service providers we are able to provide our customers with all the performance, cost and security benefits of bare metal while also giving them access to the most beneficial cloud native services they previously only enjoyed in the public cloud. Wasabi’s cloud storage enables us to provide our users with the equivalent of S3 storage at a fraction of the AWS cost.”

“Today, organizations across all industries want alternatives and flexibility when it comes to managing and processing data with the ability to select best-in-class providers without enormous costs and complexity,” said Whit Jackson, VP Technology Alliances, Wasabi Technologies. “Together with Hivelocity, we are combining the best of cloud compute and storage so customers can focus on business outcomes instead of worrying about their bill for cloud services.”

Rapid Restore

Backup your entire server’s data every night and have access to 5 days of rolling restore points.  Restore your server’s data, OS and configuration any time you need it.

Our Rapid Restore service saves the day during accidental data loss, hardware failures and virus contraction. Simply pick your recovery point and restore the data from that day. 

DDoS Protection

While our competitors may advertise DDoS protection, most often, they are merely implementing easily evaded router rules or simply black-holing targeted servers. They consider this “DDoS protecting their network.” However, neither of these solutions should give comfort to any online business. Should your site be attacked, chances are likely both of these options will end with your server being taken offline. At Hivelocity, we take the responsibility of keeping your servers online very seriously. For this reason, we offer two very serious forms of DDoS protection.


Every solution we provide includes our Filtering Edge of Network System (FENS). FENS is a series of proprietary systems that proactively monitors and protects the entire Hivelocity Network from most common Denial of Service (DOS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.


For an extra fee, you can enhance your server’s protection further with the addition of our Server Defense System. Our Server Defense System sits in front of your server, inspecting inbound data and looking for malicious traffic. The moment an attack is detected, it instantly begins scrubbing each data packet. Hivelocity’s Server Defense System delivers business continuity even in the face of massive and complex attacks.

Our Server Defense System is like adding an alarm and armed guard to your business, alerting you to and destroying anything attempting to jump that fence. Our Server Defense System utilizes internally developed proprietary systems in addition to Corero’s Threat Defense Smartwalls for data packet scrubbing. Each of our data centers is a scrubbing center with Corero Smartwalls on-premise, allowing us to provide on-prem zero-lag data scrubbing.

SSL Certificates

The security of your online commerce and protecting your customers’ data is as important to us as it is to you. When your customers see the green bar, they will know their connection to you is protected. We offer single domain, multi-domain, and wild-card certificates.

We offer industry leading 128-bit encryption certificates, allowing you to conduct e-commerce with complete security. Inspire confidence in your customers by displaying any number of seals and indicators certifying that your site is secure.

Load Balancing

Adding this service to two servers with identical content will allow you to distribute your load evenly across your hardware. Don’t lose business because you couldn’t handle the demand. Load balance and handle your biggest resource spikes with ease.


Stop attacks, prevent unauthorized access, and achieve regulatory compliance. Our Juniper hardware firewalls offload the work so your server never has to consume resources protecting itself from malicious traffic. A single firewall can be used to protect multiple servers.

Cloud Storage

Cloud storage offers users redundancy and easy accessibility, ensuring your data remains secure and readily available. Scale to as much as you need for only a 20¢/GB.

Cloud Storage is distributed and replicated across many servers, protecting your data from hardware failure. Highly scalable, it can handle thousands of client connections via TCP/IP. Connect to your virtual drive with SFTP, FTP, and SSHMount and in the future NFS and AFP. Cloud Storage is based on a stackable design which is upgradeable up to 2TB per instance.
