Cloud Virtual Server Overview
The NephoScale development team has been building and testing enterprise grade cloud infrastructure platforms for almost 10 years. The hardware architecture of the Cloudlet host servers uses the latest Intel processors, DDR3 RAM, and the highest performing Solid State Drives and RAID controllers. The number and type of SSDs chosen for each Cloudlet host server are optimized to maximize performance based upon the amount of RAM installed and the specific hypervisor being used. Benchmark NephoScale cloud virtual servers and you’ll find that we do less time slicing and oversubscription than our competitors, and the performance speaks for itself.

Featured Case Study
“NephoScale was the ideal cloud service provider for Citybot because we were able to combine on-demand bare metal dedicated servers and virtual servers on the same low latency private network, all at an affordable cost. With NephoScale, we have improved our application performance, saved money, reduced the number of servers we manage, and even simplified our software development.”- Greg Solovyev
