With a blend of KVM hypervisor technology and Linux Containers (LXC), Proxmox VE is the virtualization tool which can revolutionize your development environment. Now available as a default option with all Hivelocity Instant Deployment Dedicated Server purchases, scaling and maintaining your virtual infrastructure has never been easier.

“In the past,” says Drew Adams, VP of Global Sales at Hivelocity, “if a client wanted one of our prebuilt instant servers with Proxmox VE, the server would have to be deployed with a generic operating system (like CentOS) and then the client would have to reload the server or request a reload from our support team in order to have Proxmox VE installed. Now, with Proxmox VE available as a default option, the time savings for both our clients and support staff will be seen immediately.”  

At the core of Proxmox VE’s utility is the concept of flexibility. By combining KVM and LXC options, users can create different virtual machines (VMs) for different scenarios, utilizing both virtualization and containerization as needed. With full-virtualization through KVM, administrators can create fully-isolated virtual instances, each with their own OS and designated system resources. When more light-weight solutions are desired, LXC containers can be used to run isolated application instances, allowing for more efficient, precise resource utilization system-wide. With its web-based GUI and variety of available storage options, Proxmox VE let’s you design your digital infrastructure around your organization’s goals and needs, not your system’s limitations. 

Part of what makes Proxmox VE great is its focus on scalability. Using its proprietary Proxmox Cluster file system (pmxcfs), Proxmox VE is capable of storing, syncing, and navigating through thousands of VMs with ease. By grouping VMs and containers into manageable kernels, you can integrate your infrastructure seamlessly across multiple servers, scaling and descaling instances as resource demands fluctuate. With support for ZFS, ceph, and a variety of other storage options, Proxmox VE offers a secure and adaptable means of storing your VM images. Best of all, Proxmox VE’s open source, vendor-agnostic status means it can integrate with your existing infrastructure while helping you avoid vendor lock-in

Now, you can get the best of both worlds with Proxmox VE and a Hivelocity instant or custom dedicated server. The convenience of the cloud combined with the superior resources of bare metal. With easy access to the Hivelocity API, scaling your bare metal cloud is as easy as spinning a new virtual instance. Deploy any of our instant servers in an average of seven minutes, and grow your cluster’s resources on-demand. Whether it’s custom solutions or private clouds, Hivelocity is the provider you can rely on.

So, come see the difference today with a Proxmox VE-ready Instant Deployment Dedicated Server from Hivelocity.

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.

FREE

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.

$15/MONTH PER SERVER

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.

Firewalls

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.
