With many server models you have the choice of the standard speed connection at 100 Mbit/s or you can choose to make full use of the server connection with a dedicated 1 Gbit/s switch port.
The dedicated 1 Gbit/s port provides you with the maximum, exclusive bandwidth of 1000 Mbit/s. This enables, for instance, fast downloads even with numerous requests and large files.
The availability of a 1 Gbit/s connection is shown in the server details for each model.
For a limited time only: Introductory price from US$34 per Month.
The "1 Gbit/s switch port" feature normally costs US$48 and is selected in the Server configurator.
The serverloft Advanced Network provides you with your personal IP network with 32 IP addresses. This feature is available as an extension to your serverloft server.
All Advanced Network pricing information is available in the price list.
Having opted for Managed Monitoring, you will find a monitoring services setting on your control panel. This allows you to configure the monitoring of your server with individual settings as required.
Managed Support is available as an optional extra on any server and comes in two sizes:
|Name of product||Monthly fee||Fault reports included|
|Managed Monitoring L||US$ 75||2|
|Managed Monitoring XL||US$ 150||5|
The Managed Private Network allows your server to be quickly and easily linked to a private network in your serverloft panel. This means you may create your own server cluster for sophisticated applications using direct network links to facilitate rapid and secure data exchange between the servers. Each private network is provided with five VPN connections free of charge. Using your own log-in credentials you will be able to log-on to your private network from any Internet-enabled workstation and access data stored there.
The Managed Support product is available as an optional extra on any server and comes in three sizes:
|Name of product||Price per server/month||Bandwidth|
|Private Network L||US$ 15||10 MBit/s|
|Private Network XL||US$ 30||100 MBit/s|
|Private Network XXL||US$ 75||1000 MBit/s|
This option allows the serverloft customer to connect up to five servers. These can be configured as three web servers with two attached database servers. Databases work on the replication principle, i.e. data is held simultaneously on two servers. This accelerates the transmission of the data and also heightens the level of data security. In this scenario, the web servers remain externally accessible via the Internet. The database servers are only provided with one Internet connection to protect them from unauthorized access. This arrangement allows the customer to provide data quickly and securely.
In this arrangement, a server is used as a dedicated firewall in front of the web servers in order to filter incoming traffic and protect the data in the servers. Only the firewall can be reached by outsiders. The web servers are linked to each other and are connected to the firewall via an internal network.
In this scenario, a central storage server, which can only be accessed via the internal network, is used together with the web servers. The web servers access the storage server by means of the NFS protocol or iSCSI procedures. In both cases, this means that data can be accessed from storage just as easily as data stored on the local hard disk. The data is, however, better protected against loss or unauthorised access, since it is hidden from the Internet when saved.
Five VPN connections are provided by serverloft free of charge with each internal network. This makes it possible to access the internal network and its servers remotely by means of a username and password. Access to the VPN server is provided via an out-of-band connection, accessible even if your server should become unresponsive on the public Internet.
Managed Loadbalancing Local allows you to route traffic to your servers via a serverloft-operated redundant load balancing infrastructure, thereby ensuring optimal server load distribution.

This service includes the hardware, serverloft network connection and everything else associated with the Managed Load Balancing Local configured services. Support for the service is provided as an optional extra by serverloft in the form of its Managed Support.
The Managed Loadbalancing Local product is available in three different sizes and is governed by a separate contract:
|Name of product||Monthly fee||Maximum connection|
|Managed Loadbalancing Local L||US$ 69||50|
|Managed Loadbalancing Local XL||US$ 119||100|
|Managed Loadbalancing Local XXL||US$ 199||200|
