What is a Windows Server?

A Windows server is based on an edition of Windows specifically written for hosting.

Windows servers are the ideal solution for businesses that want to use ASP or .NET languages to develop their site, an MS SQL database or if they want to run a Windows-based CMS such as Umbraco or Kentico.

Benefits of Hosting a Windows Server with Hyve

High availability built-in

We only offer high-availability platforms. We offer replication and load balancing across data centres. This means that if there is a fatal incident at one DC, your traffic can automatically be routed to a secondary location in a matter of seconds.

Enterprise Tier 1 Network

In order to provide our strict 100% network up-time guarantee, Hyve’s global 2Tbit/s network peers directly with the world’s top Tier 1 bandwidth providers. Diversely routed, with no single point of failure, our network provides extremely low latency connectivity on a global scale.

Security first

Security is the backbone of our business. Therefore, to protect your business against malicious attacks, we have an extensive suite of security features available. We include 1GB of DDoS protection with every plan, at no additional cost.

Resilient power & cooling

Our data centres all offer multiple layers of redundancy for power and cooling, from a minimum of N+1 at some sites, right through to N+N at others. Power is fed diversely from separate national grids with UPS and on-site generators available to take over where necessary, ensuring no drop in service.
