Cloud Servers

CloudVMs, also known as Virtual Private Servers (VPS) at some hosts, are isolated Linux (Unix) operating system instances run within a larger cloud environment.

Cloud VM instances run on the PixelGate Cloud Infrastructure, allowing us to dynamically allocate your resources, clone or terminate your instance as you need.

Each CloudVM gets a guaranteed amount of disk space, CPU power, bandwidth, and memory. All with one flat fee. As a result, a website hosted on a Cloud VM runs in its own isolated environment and will not be affected by other VM's thus eliminating the risk of downtime, hacks or decreased performance due to other customers mistakes.

Each Cloud VM administrator gets full root access, allowing server customization just like a traditional dedicated server. Cloud VM instances can be used for any purpose such as hosting multiple websites, custom applications, email or even a failover backup server.

The PixelGate Cloud infrastructure also provides a high level of availability. CloudVMs can easily be cloned, migrated or added to a loadbalancer structure allowing you to scale and eliminating downtime due to node maintenance.

Cloud VMs have peristant storage using disk images and permanent IP addresses. Snapshot backups may be created that allow you to bring up previous versions of the instance to recover missing files or older versions of your site.

The Pixelgate Cloud infrastructure allows you to save additional money by choosing to pay for only the additional resources you need... when you need it. Start off small and add resources as you grow. When you outgrow your VM, you clone it into additional VMs and even dedicated servers as part of an enterprise quality network cluster. If you need to cut back during the off season, that is easily done as well by reducing vCPU usage and dedicated memory.

Need Wordpress? We have preloaded instances available with WordPress and LetsEncrypt SSL built in


All CloudVMs come with:
• Choice of CentOS6/7 or Ubuntu 16LTS Operating Systems
• Root/Admin access via SSH or Panel (if installed)
• Control Panel choices include free PixelGate Webbased Panel or Plesk (additional cost)
• No limits on how your resources are used assuming proper internet etiquette (no spam, warez, etc). Want to run a company mailing list or upload your home media files?. As long as you have the space and data transfer, that is fine. We can even recommend tools to help with that such as OwnCloud and DadaMail
• Run your own Web Accelerator reverse proxy such as Varnish or NGINX either inline within your own instance or at a small additional cost a dedicated proxy/loadbalancer in front of one or more of your instances
• Courtesy Monitoring to verify instance is up and running
• Courtesy Snapshot Backups for Disaster Recovery (twice-weekly)
• Courtesy Operating System updates performed (typically monthly)
• Ability to request a standby Recovery Snapshot if you are unsure if something may break (like a WordPress update)
• Ability to request one or more Full Clone Snapshot(s) for rapidly scaling up behind a loadbalancer or if you need an archive instance at a point in time
Additional Options:
Managed Monitor, Response and Updates (MRU) - $79/mo
    PixelGate will monitor with a full stack agent to verify functionality of the application environment and either attempt to resolve any issues or contact and work with you to resolve them. Pixelgate will also ensure that OS updates are applied in a timely fashion and verify functionality. MRU users are also entitled to support with PCI issues.
Nightly Archived Backup Snapshots - $5/mo for 5 day retention
    Full copies of the instance which can be restored from a particular date. Additional Archive days are $1/day for each 50GB. So a 10 day archive for a 50GB instance would be $10/mo. A 30 day archive for a 100GB instance would be $60/mo. Additional options are 10,20,30,60 and 90 days.
Additional Mounted vDisk Space - $5/mo per 20GB increment
    An additional hard drive image mounted on the instances operating system. It will then be included in all snapshots, migrations etc. Can be added at any time, but requires a reboot. Max Size per image is 120GB. No more the two additional images may be added to the instance. Existing images can be resized up, but there will be scheduled downtime.
Additional RAM for instance - $5/mo per GB
    Additional RAM (Memory). Requires reboot to add. Great option if you need more headroom for your application but you don't need to increase the size of your VM package.
Additional vCPU Core - $15/mo
    Additional vCPU cores to help with computing power. Requires reboot to add. It is not recommended to go above 4 cores total as dedicated HW is probably more cost effective at that point.
FrontEnd Web Acceleration and Security Proxies such as CloudFlare, Varnish and Sucuri - varies from free to $20/mo
    We can help you take advantage of front end proxy services to speed up your site response as well as protect it from common attacks
