Managed Server

A server exclusively for you, managed by us
Do you want to run special services or need a dedicated server for other reasons and don’t want the hassle of keeping it up to date and secure? BSWS’ managed servers are perfect for you then.
We typically operate managed servers on our own hardware that we provide for the duration of the contract. Of course in our air conditioned and access controlled data center.

Webserver, Adserver, or something completely different
BSWS’ managed servers come as webservers by default. You can manage virtual hosts on them just like on our shared platform using our control center. If you want to run something else on your managed server – no problem, talk to us.

High Availibility (HA) and Clusters
Our infrastructure is perfect for bigger projects. Talk to us and we can help you to provide services from multiple, redundant machines, independent from single hosts from the cluster failing. Our years long experience with HA setups and our highly redundant infrastructure with multiple power feeds and networks as well as a highly redundant core and backbone provide a perfect environment.

Managed Security included
We run all customer servers in a network segment (VLAN) of their own, at least one for each customer. They are seperated by firewalls. The firewall rules for your VLAN are set to match your requirements.

Monitoring included
We will monitor your servers for basic reachability. More services can be monitored on request. In case of failure you are notified by email. Failures are also displayed at our NOC so that our staff can act as well. The details of which services are monitored how and what to do in failure cases are negotiated with you.

Remote Power Control included
For servers without (or too poor) integrated lights out management we deploy remote power controllers. You can powercycle your server using our control center, immediately or scheduled. Turning the machine on or off is also possible.

Serial Console included
For servers with serial consoles we run a console server infrastructure. You can access your server’s serial port using a secure ssh connection. Access to your console is of course password protected and encrypted. Using the serial access you can install machines from scratch remotely, fix problems that arise at boot time before the network is started and much more.

Clue included
The people make the difference – if you run into problems you can rely on our clueful staff helping you quickly and competent.
