Cloud - hosting of virtual servers - IaaS
Rackfish Cloud Servers –
scalable infrastructure as a service
Server capacity at the right price and quality.
We’ve put effort into every step leading up to your virtual server. The internet connections, the routing, the power supply, the servers, the redundancy, the virtualization, the overcapacity – with us, your server should not have to go down – not even for maintenance. A server with us often corresponds to multiple servers in the large clouds thanks to our high performance and redundancy.
IaaS – Infrastructure as a Service is a service that can be adapted to the needs you have at the moment at a really good cost!
Hardware – RAM
In addition to reserving the memory that is purchased and not overbooking it so that the machines can always deliver the ordered quantity – we book it twice. If the hardware crashes the server is automatically restarted on new hardware!
Storage - Block storage
Servers have access to storage over two separate networks. Both networks are connected to dual controllers and the disk cabinets are able to lose several disks before they lose any data. The system uses a combination of SSD and SAS for data that need fast access.
Hardware – CPU
Many cloud solutions are overcompensating with multiple CPUs while letting customers' servers steal cycles from each other. At Rackfish we have reserved capacity, and in addition, if a node gets high load the virtual servers are automatically rebalanced in the cluster. A Rackfish CPU often provides more power than other CPUs.
If you want to use an S3-compatible storage solution that is completely based in Sweden with very high redundancy, it is also available. Fast access from servers and very high capacity are appreciated by those who have tried to move large amounts of data to foreign services.
Network - Internet connection
A really powerful network makes wonders for performance. All servers have access to multiple 10Gbps connections so that all instances can run at full capacity. With three transit operators and traffic across hubs, there is always a good route and we automatically optimize - if networking is important, call us!
Backup – data security
Very high redundancy on storage is not enough, we also work with snapshots on servers for quick recovery and backups. Backups are transferred on our private, redundant, connections to our secondary data center in Uppsala. So if what must not happen happens....
Since our virtualization is based on VMware, we never have to expose our customers to service restarts, we can guarantee performance, build advanced solutions for accessibility and not even a hardware failure causes any greater downtimes.
We use a combination of many techniques to give the best uptime. Redundancy, where everything is duplicated, via overcapacity that allows us to shut down a server, an Internet operator or a netswitch we can perform advanced service and upgrades without our
customers noticing it.
Based in Sweden

Rackfish Cloud pricing
Below are the most common services with prices. Everything is charged per hour, monthly prices are starting prices and could differ due to months of varying length and rounding.
Choose your own connection speed to the server and complement with an Edge gateway to get firewall and load sharing to your machines. With an Edge GW, all your servers share bandwidth. The connection speed is set to the limit value, but the traffic itself is not measured, it is free to use the port speed.
|Resource||Price per hour||Price per month|
|vCPU (core)||0,04 SEK||30 SEK|
|High-Availability RAM per GB||0,14 SEK||100 SEK|
|Lagring, SAN, per 10GB||0,03 SEK||22 SEK|
|Backup, per 50GB||350 SEK|
|Edge Gateway||0,54 SEK||395 SEK|
A server is made up of one or more vCPU, one or more GB of RAM, and the required storage. The services are charged per hour and can be freely increased, reduced, or suspended in the meantime. A turned off server is charged only for its storage.
|Resource||Net Speed||Price per month with Edge Gateway (firewall, load balancing)||Price without Edge GW|
|Network connection||1 Mbps||395 SEK||0 SEK|
|Network connection||10 Mbps||445 SEK||50 SEK|
|Network connection||100 Mpbs||495 SEK||100 SEK|
|Network connection||200 Mbps||1145 SEK||750 SEK|
