Comparison

XephStratus was created with the purpose of providing the highest flexibility and performance.

That is why we came up with all sorts of features and capabilities you will not find anywhere else.

Flexible resources in terms of size

Our goal is to offer IaaS the closest we can to a true utility computing system. Unlike most other IaaS platforms, our cloud allows users to create virtual server instances with the exact combination of CPU, RAM, storage and bandwidth they require. Forget about tied silo resources. We allow our customers to purchase only what they need and eliminate all waste.

A wider range of resources

Our IaaS platform was built from the ground up with the aim of offering a fast and simple solution. XephStratus can offer our users one of the widest size ranges in the market. This gives our users the ability to customize the server instances required according to their specific needs.

Persistent Servers

All XephStratus's virtual instances are persistent. If a server is running or stopped, all settings, network settings and volume associations, persist. A server is only removed from an account when the holder of the account deletes it.

Persistent Storage

The cloud storage of Vurbia Technologies is persistent. Storage is available in the form of volumes created by the user. The data on a volume persists whether or not associated with a server. Data's storage is only removed from an account when the owner of that account deletes it.

Manage the number of CPU cores

With XephStratus you are able to specify the exact number of CPU cores you want in the instances of any particular server. In this sense, each virtual server instance can be optimized for the one function assigned by the user.

All options of operating systems

XephStratus has no restrictions about operating systems running on virtual instances. Users can run Windows, Linux and other OS without any problems with the administrator or root access. Any operating system will run on XephStratus's platform if it is compatible with the standards of the x86 architecture.

Server and 'cloning' of units

All servers and unmounted drives can be cloned.  A server that is cloned creates a copy with the exact configuration, the same network parameters and a new copy of all associated volumes. When cloning a disk an exact copy of the contents of the entire volume is created as a new unit. This action can easily duplicate standard server configurations and volumes in an account.

Redundancy and fault prevention system

If a virtual server suffers a software failure or the underlying physical server fails, the affected instance(s) will be automatically restarted on a different physical server. In addition, Vurbia Technologies has invested significantly in hardware redundancy, including storage of all data using RAID 10, a redundant network infrastructure and servers with two separate power sources.
