Customization Options


Customize up to 32 cores. Each server comes with at least one full 2.0GHz core.


Each cloud server comes with at least 1GB of RAM. You can ramp up to 48GB.


Choose 25GB-250GB local or SAN storage for your cloud server.

Fully customize a bare metal server with your choice of processor(s), hard drive config, RAM, port speed, and more, and we’ll deploy it in 2 to 4 hours. Your monthly bare metal server also includes 20TB of outbound public bandwidth at no additional cost.

If you’d prefer to build your cloud infrastructure on virtual servers, simply select the cores, storage, and RAM you need, and our automated provisioning system will deploy those virtual servers within 5 to 15 minutes. Your virtual servers also include 5TB of outbound public bandwidth (with monthly billing) at no additional cost.
