All manufacturers argue that their hardware is the best, but our years of experience mean we really do know which components are most reliable and perform best in a demanding server environment. Each of our dedicated servers is built from branded components and tested to our uncompromising specification, assuring rock solid performance and dependability.

Intel Pentium 4 and Celeron UK dedicated servers Intel Processor & Chipset

Whilst more expensive, Intel chips generate little heat and thus have greater reliability than those of other manufacturers making them the only choice for mission critical applications.
UK dedicated servers with DDR memory DDR Memory
A generous amount of the latest DDR memory. When memory is not being used by your applications it will automatically be utilised to cache frequently accessed files and data giving an additional speed boost.
High performance, reliable data storage with Donhost dedicated servers Hot Swappable Seagate Hard Disk Drives
Fast disk space in which to store your files and data. The strain placed on the drive's moving parts by constant operation in a server environment makes the selection of this component critical. We have found the consistency and performance of Seagate disks to be unmatched, even by other big name manufacturers, which is why we specify them for all our machines.
Your valuable data protected by hardware disk redundancy Hardware RAID Controller
Hyper Velocity Server includes the 3ware RAID controller card which mirrors writes to your hard disks and speeds up file access by balancing read requests across both drives. In the event of a disk failure, all requests are served by the remaining drive, the operation of your server is uninterrupted and no data is lost. Again without interrupting the operation of the server, the failed disk is replaced and the data on it rebuilt to restore redundancy. Beware of software based RAID and disk mirroring systems, these cheaper but more error prone solutions are not adequate for use in a mission critical environment.
