The latest virtualisation technology - Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V
Virtualisation technology allows you to benefit from high levels of flexibility and control. Ideal for businesses needing total control of server space at a price that doesn't break the bank.

- Shared hardware resources
Microsoft's latest virtualisation technology (Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V) allows DCoD to efficiently run multiple operating systems, unmodified, on a single physical server at the same time. This allows you to make the best use of shared hardware resources while being completely isolated from other virtual servers on the same physical server.

- Security and reliability
A core component of Hyper-V, Windows Hypervisor is a thin layer of software between the hardware and the operating system that provides partitioning functionality and is responsible for maintaining strong isolation between partitions. It also has an inherently secure architecture with minimal attack surface, as it does not contain any third-party device drivers.

Self healing, clustered server architecture
Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V clustered server architecture offers enhanced flexibility and manageability by supporting features like quick migration of virtual machines from one physical server to another. This self healing architecture allows DCoD virtual servers to instantly switch to new hardware in the event of a service failure to ensure business continuity.

Central Storage Area Network (SAN)
Local disk storage is common on the cheaper implementations in the market, whereas DCoD utilise centralised storage which adds an extra level of resiliency away from the node machines and because it is configured in a RAID formation, the user benefits from a further level of resiliency and peace of mind at the SAN level.

Customisable server configurations
Because no user is the same, the DCoD virtual server range allows you to choose from a range of suggested configurations to suit common scenarios including, business email, web hosting, software development, databases and powerful applications. Alternatively they can build the VPS just the way they want it - giving you or your user the opportunity to specify the following resources independently:

  • Hard disk space
  • RAM
  • Number of CPU cores
  • Number of IP addresses

This customisable approach gives the user complete flexibility to build their virtual server in line with their business requirements and the requirements of the application they choose to run. It also gives the user the possibility to start with a small server and build that server up – ensuring they never pay for that which they don't need.

Scheduled temporary or permanent upgrades
With the added flexibility to schedule temporary upgrades or permanently upgrade the specification on demand, planning for the future with a DCoD virtual server. You simply select the resources they wish to increase (vCPU cores and RAM) and select the start and end date to ensure your server stays online and available at all times.
