Sample Campaign Hosting packages

Upon request Rackfish provides quotes with clear, itemised pricing for our suggested solution – the agency is perfectly free to deduct or add services from the suggestion to tailor according to needs and budget. We can also, together with the agency or client, prepare a smaller solution and plan for expansion when (and if) needed – with budget and changes pre-approved.

Entry Level Campaign

The agency alternative to shared hosting for smaller campaigns with tight budgets – scalable and professional.

For the campaign with a small budget or expected low number of visitors. The advantage to using shared hosting is two-fold; Resources are not shared with other tenants as it is on a shared hosting (web hotel) and this package could be massively scaled if needed.

Campaign Server Basic
From: SEK 595 /month

Includes:

Dedicated Campaign server
1 vcpu (small)
1 GB RAM
Linux OS + MySQL
10 GB of storage in highly redundant SAN (+ up to 10 GB room for automatic snapshots)

Standard configuration: Latest Ubuntu LTS

Upgradable to larger Rackfish Campaign hosting services

12 months. Shorter contracts are possible with setup fee

To the basic server it is possible to add SLA B and C (24/7 monitoring and on call engineers), Managed services, backup services and datacenter mirroring. By upgrading server to Standard server all other Rackfish services becomes available.

Large Campaign

For campaigns with a large number of visitors.

To insure availability, we offer one or several servers with high redundancy. The package can be complemented with load balancing, several servers, redundancy in several data centers, etc. We could use geographically diverse servers, hybrid cloud solutions (running some servers in a public cloud as a complement to the Rackfish cloud), a mixture of CDN’s etc. Still with Rackfish as the sole contact.

This solution is always custom made according to the customer’s requirements. A common solution could be:

2 x Standard servers including
2 TB Transfer
100 GB Storage + up to 100 GB snapshots

High availability
Managed Services
SLA B 24/7
Backup
Extra 8 TB transfer

Load balancing

Sample cost: Setup 4000 SEK (for short-term contracts), 2800 for traffic commit up to 10 TB – Monthly fee
16590 SEK

Do note that our services are jammed with goodies. For example this package will give 6 engineer hours every month, it includes advanced monitoring 24/7 with technicians on call for action (included in managed servies on office hours, billed at daytime rate outside office hours). Monthly, 3rd party security revisions, ensuring that the servers are properly configured, with automatic remedy by our managed services team. This is high-quality campaign hosting, leaving room for the agency to start working on next project.

Huuuge Campaign

You got this huge campaign, pushing a lot of advertising and expecting massive amounts of visitors? This is the kind of campaign that really couldn’t use a standard setup, let Rackfish analyse your campaign and suggest a proper solution tailored to meet the demands of your particular campaign.

Not good enough? Ok. Here is a suggestion for a solution that is really powerful and has enormous potential to scale both horizontal (adding more, and more servers to cope with the load) and vertical (adding more power such as cpu capacity and/or memory to make each node more powerful).

Three servers, two web frontends and one database, all with

Includes:

    • 3 standard servers – Medium Campaign package + more cpu and memory
    • Loadbalancer
    • CDN offload of all static content
    • 2TB transfer from servers / month
    • 5TB transfer from CDN / month
    • Managed services – Rackfish will do all normal maintenance and work with the server.
    • Support agreement, 24/7 support.

  • Huge Campaign
  • SEK37430/mo
  • Setup: SEK 6000 *
  • 3 x  Standard Servers
  • Extra RAM & CPU
  • High Availability
  • Load balancing
  • Backup
  • CDN with traffic
  • Managed Services
  • 24/7 SLA B
  • Scale up or out!

Double Datacenters

The double data center setup is an advanced solution aiming at those client who need extra resilience.

A basic setup consists of:

Two loadbalancers, setup in two geographically dispersed datacenters. The inbound traffic is shared with these two services as long as they both are responding. In each datacenter there’s (at least) one web server. All services are delivered with full redundancy as such (redundant power, network, ability to fail over within cluster etc).

In the event one loadbalancer is set off-line, traffic will still be routed via the remaining loadbalancer to both web fronts, using our core network between datacenters. In the event a web server goes down, both loadbalancers will use the remaining. In the unlikely event that one datacenter goes down traffic will be routed to the remaining datacenter.

Note that the application must be built to be distributed in this way, which could impose demands on database and file storage for example.

Example costs are described for a basic setup.

Includes:

      • 2 loadbalancers in 2 different datacenters
      • 2 Medium campaign servers, one in each datacenter

  • Double Datacenter
  • SEK17580/mo
  • Setup: SEK 4000 *

It is possible to report other incidents via our phone-answering service, which will be directed to the engineer on call. All work ordered outside business hours will be billed at 2500 SEK / hour. Infrastructure problems (such as internet connections, power feeds, storage networks or clusters) are never charged to customers. There is no monthly cost for SLA A. To learn more, click here
SLA B
Customers with mission critical servers or applications should choose at least SLA B to get support outside CET business hours. In SLA B a support phone number is included, and tailored technical monitoring & resolution of incidents. Infrastructure is fully monitored, with technicians on call 365/24/7. Infrastructure problems (such as internet connections, power feeds, storage networks or clusters) are never charged to customers.In SLA B a support phone number is included, and tailored technical monitoring & resolution of incidents. SLA B costs 2000 SEK / month for one server, work off-hours is billed at 950 SEK / hour. Our average respond time is around 5 minutes and average resolution within 25 minutes.To learn more, click here
SLA C
SLA C is based on SLA B, but has 2 discounted incidents (max one hour each) per month included, making it easier to budget the costs. SLA C costs 2950 per month. To learn more, click here
Managed Services
In our hosting agreements we do not provide any work with the server. This can be bought on a per-hour basis or through an agreement called managed services.With managed services you have the attention of our engineers – time for management, administration, tweaking and optimizing is included for a fixed monthly price. Monitoring and patching is included as well as advisory services.Using Managed Services, tasks are sent to our technicians who handle day-to-day administration, setup of applications, administration of users or setting up a new website or database.

Optimized performance

We monitor the performance of the servers, and can – within the managed services agreement – optimize the applications and provide feedback to developers on areas where code improvement will allow the servers to handle more traffic. We also provide advice on areas such as scaling the platform or software improvements such as caching.

Verified, higher security!

This year we have included a third party vulnerability checking from Tenable Network Security for all servers with Managed Services. This security verification checks for vulnerabilities monthly, and our technicians fix possible vulnerabilities or contact the customer if it is outside our scope of support. By using this verification, we can find security problems and fix them before any intrusion or breach of security is made.

Up to 3 hours of work is included in the agreement per month. This limit is not strictly enforced, though. With Managed Services, our wish is to give the best possible service.

Support hours

Our support is always available during CET business hours. Outside these hours we have 24/7 monitoring of our infrastructure. If you want special monitoring of your server or application, we have several SLA – Service Level Agreements that help you obtain 24/7 support all year round.

Load Balancing
With load balancing, visitors to a site can be divided between different physical or virtual servers. We offer load balancing as a service to distribute traffic. It could even be setup with only one server behind, as a preparation for adding more servers as needed. In addition, a higher dependability is obtained since the load balancer can avoid sending visitors to a server that isn’t responding.
Facebook Campaign
Everyday, more and more campaigns are run on Facebook. This requires that the communication with the campaign server is secured with SSL. Many times, a campaign is run for a shorter period of time and it is unnecessary to register a domain and a certificate.Rackfish offers complete campaign solutions for Facebook where a certificate and a subdomain under campaignhosting.se are included – making it possible to setup Facebook campaigns instantly
RAW Storage
RAW Storage is a bulk storage service, using the same SAN infrastructure as regular server storage, but without snapshots and only sold in bulk sizes from 1000 GB (1 TB)
Other Services not included in this list
Among other services not included in the options list are: Hybrid cloud services, Licenses (Microsoft Windows, Microsoft SQL Server, Wowza Media Server etc), Fault tolerance and other advanced solutions such as multiple datacenter hosting, both active-active and active-passive..
