Ideal for Big Data

  • Store and query large datasets
  • Offer public access or lock it down to your private access list
  • Use any combination of database technology —
    we'll help advise on how to set it up

Great for large data archives

  • Keep your backups or archives stored securely
  • Our data centre is monitored 24/7
  • Your server will report any disk faults so we can take proactive action
  • Redundant disk arrays (RAID) help keep your data safe

Technical setup

Each Storage Monster can be configured to your needs. For typical setups we suggest:

  • Small, RAID-1 (mirrored) volume for simple OS installation
  • Storage drives combined into a single unit using RAID-6
  • Storage volume formatted with LVM (so you can easily partition, and repartition)

We can set up the drives up in other ways but we think this strikes a good balance between a reliably-booting system, safe data and high storage capacity.

Fair pricing

Our prices for hosting are transparent — we quote only from list prices and don't offer "used car salesmen" discretionary discounts. Our staff have no sales targets and we pay no commission. However, we do respect long-term commitment and can offer a fair reduction for 2-3 year contracts.

Bytemark give us an edge over our competition as we have direct control over our hosting servers, with the ability to configure any aspect without impediment. And their fees are so cost-effective that we can offer real value to our customers too.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer a managed service?

Yes, we do! Managed hosting from Bytemark lets you focus on what you do best — building your business whilst we build and maintain your hosting.

Our managed hosting takes care of your initial server setup, migration, ongoing monitoring and reliable backups. Learn more about our managed hosting service.

What happens if there's a hardware fault?

Bytemark take care of your server so if there's a hardware fault, we'll act rapidly to resolve it as soon as we're made aware.

If you let Bytemark manage your hosting, we'll monitor the server and contact you to arrange a time to swap any failing components.

If you spot any unexpected hardware faults while managing the server yourself, our excellent support staff will track it down, even out of hours, and fix it for you.

In each case, we guarantee to change faulty hardware, once reported, within 4 hours during working hours, or within 24 hours at other times.

What if my server goes wrong another way?

When we deliver your dedicated server, you get access to the console shell which allows you to both reboot and access the console of your server. This means that even if your firewall is misconfigured, or you're investigating a hardware fault, you can keep control of the server.

Can I reimage the server?

Yes you can! If you need to start over, you can use our console shell to reimage your system at any time, without needing to get in touch with us.
