Why HC's Public Cloud Servers?

We provide reliable, high-performance Public Cloud Servers. Choose your cloud service location between Chicago (data center in South Bend, IN), New York, London, Frankfurt, and Singapore. Learn more about the High Availability and Failover Cloud services below
Public Clouds

Cloud Servers

Our Cloud Servers (Public Clouds) are built with VMware Cloud computing automation platform. They can use High Availability (HA), a service that improves your operational continuity. Automated Fault-Tolerance (100% Uptime), which completely eliminates the risk of service interruption and application downtime is also available as an add-on. Host Color's enterprise Storage Area Network (SAN) that features built-in data protection keeps your data safe under any circumstances without performance impact.
High Availability

High Availability Cloud

High Availability (HA) increases your cloud server uptime and reduces application downtime. HA function monitors your Public Cloud Server for an outage on the physical infrastructure or an OS failure inside your server. If any of these occurs, the HA automatically restarts your cloud server and it resumes operations. Please note that the High Availability protects you from downtime on a cloud infrastructure level, but does not prevent interruption of the services on an application level.
Fault-Tolerant SAN

100% Cloud Server Uptime

HC offers a Failover Cloud service. It prevents application downtime result of a server OS failure or outage on the physical infrastructure. The Failover Cloud service features a redundant virtual instance that is a mirrored and fully synchronized copy of your main cloud server. If it fails, the redundant server takes on automatically and prevents an interruption of your applications and workflows.
Cloud Management

Cloud Management

Manage your Cloud server and all services from a single dashboard in your HostColor Account. Install and reinstall the server's operating system, monitor resource usage, and take full control of your cloud environment.
Infrastructure On Demand

Fault-Tolerant Storage

Our Storage Area Networks feature built-in data protection that safeguards your data under any circumstances without performance impact. The data protection includes Increased application availability; Multi-path and failover; Reduce impact risks of disk failures; Flexible configurations for various storage plans, etc.

The default operating system of your Cloud server is a Linux distribution. To use a Windows OS, make sure that you have configured a cloud server with the following (or better) computing resource specifications:
Windows 10: 2 vPCU cores, 3 GB RAM, and 40 GB of data storage
Windows 11: 2 vPCU cores, 4 GB RAM, and 80 GB of data storage
Windows Server: 2 vPCU cores, 8 GB RAM, and 80 GB of data storage

What to Consider?

All VMware ESXi-based Public Cloud Servers can be scaled up in CPU, RAM, and Storage at any time. You can start with fewer computing resources and increase them on the go. Choose your server carefully by:
Virtual CPU

Virtual CPU (vCPU)

One virtual CPU (vCPU) is equivalent to 1 physical CPU core. As a user of HostColor's cloud infrastructure services, you can scale up and down the vCPU resources on your Public Cloud server based on your users' demands, something you cannot do on a Bare-Metal Dedicated server.
Storage Type

Storage Type

All HC's Public Clouds use reliable data storage. You can choose between two different types of data storage area networks (SAN) - our standard SAN and a Fault-Tolerant SAN. Both networks feature various data storage service options - SATA HDD, SAS, SSD, or NMVe-powered disk space. Choose a storage service based on the amount of work that needs to be done.
Bandwidth or Data Transfer

NetWork, Bandwidth & Data Transfer

Do you have experience with internet network management? It is important to understand how data transfer works and what is the difference between bandwidth and data transfer. HostColor allows you to monitor your network connection and the incoming and outgoing data transfer on your cloud server. When you customize your server, choose an "Internet Port" and "Data Transfer" quota.
Network Performance Analytics

Cloud Server GUI (Control panel)

Do you need to manage your server with a graphical user interface (GUI)? Consider using an open-source control panels like CentOS Web Panel (CWP), Vesta, Froxlor, aaPanel, Webmin, Virtualmin, Ajenti, Sentora, Blueonyx, Easy Hosting Control Panel (EHCP), i-MSCP, ApisCP, or ZesleCP. You can also choose cPanel or DirectAdmin.
IT Hosting Security

Cloud Access & Security

Consider using a custom-built, encrypted Virtual Private Network (VPN). HostColor will deploy a business-class VPN solution for you. We provide you with both server-side VPN security and a user-side desktop VPN client that allows you to define and apply your own custom security policy.
Managed Services

Unmanaged or Managed Cloud

All HC's Public Cloud Servers are "Self-managed" (Unmanaged) by default and do not feature management services. This means that you - as the owner of the cloud server - are responsible for the securing, maintenance, troubleshooting, and overall management of your server environment and all software applications installed on it.

HC - Among The Best Cloud Service Providers

Why HostColor is one of the best Cloud hosting service providers? There are three simple reasons.
100% Storage Uptime

100% Storage Uptime

Your data is hosted on a fault-tolerant Storage Area Network (SAN) with built-in protection that safeguards the information under any circumstances without performance impact.
Highly Availability Cloud Hosting

Highly Availability Cloud

High Availability (HA) is not an average computing service. HA reduces IT service unavailability in an event of OS or physical host failure. 95% of the Cloud services you'd find don't support it. We do! It is a value-added service to your Cloud servers.
Automated Fault-Tolerance

Fault-Tolerance (100% Uptime)

Automated Fault-Tolerance eliminates the risk of a service outage. It provides continuous availability (100% uptime) for your websites, apps, and workloads in an event of application unavailability, OS failure, or physical host failure.
