Introduction

Request: Custom Dedicated Servers in Europe

JetServer, a quality-driven web hosting company located in the outskirts of Jerusalem, Israel, was looking for a European Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider able to deliver custom reseller hosting solutions and replicate their entire Israeli dedicated server environment to Europe.

The exact data center location in Europe is not that relevant for us, whether it is in Holland, Germany, or France, as long as the network latency throughout Europe is low and the available bandwidth high. Definitely also important for us is the pricing, as we have to integrate the dedicated server and data center network infrastructure in our own web hosting offerings.

Solution

Custom-tailored engineering options

To provide their customers among which major brands with data center presence in Europe and low-latency network reach throughout European markets, JetServer was seeking for an IaaS hosting partner in Germany, the Netherlands or France. This hosting provider had to be able to deliver high CPU/RAM dedicated server packages as well as low-latency network reach while matching JetServer’s client-specific web hosting requirements. The provided infrastructure should also be delivered against competitive reseller hosting prices.

“The exact data center location in Europe is not that relevant for us, whether it is in Holland, Germany, or France, as long as the network latency throughout Europe is low and the available bandwidth is high,” said Eli Alum, CEO of JetServer. “Definitely important for us is the pricing, as we have to integrate the dedicated server and data center network infrastructure in our own web hosting offerings. With NovoServe we were able to expand our data center network worldwide. The qualities of their network backbone across the Netherlands and Germany add solid and redundant network power to our customers’ hosting solutions. NovoServe's competitive and reseller hosting friendly pricing even allows us to sell hardware specs directly to our clients including high-CPU with large amounts of RAM.”

“What I like most about NovoServe?” added Mr. Alum. “Their personal touch :). It is not just an online ordering system like you get with many other hosting providers; where you just get dedicated servers and nothing beyond. Lots of customized engineering options are open for discussion with NovoServe.”

Data Centers Netherlands, Germany

NovoServe has two company-owned data centers in the Netherlands available for JetServer while also offering co-located data center presence in Frankfurt, Germany. Next to that, NovoServe owns a low-latency network backbone connecting 6 PoPs in two interconnected rings between Amsterdam and Frankfurt.

This cross-border infrastructure in the Netherlands and Germany combined with NovoServe’s ability to provide highly customized reseller hosting engineering options were decisive considerations for JetServer when selecting NovoServe as their IaaS hosting partner in Europe. JetServer is using NovoServe’s data center in Doetinchem, the Netherlands to house its European dedicated server infrastructure.

“The fact that they operate their own data centers as an IaaS hosting provider is very important for us,” added Mr. Alum. “Their company-owned data centers give them the possibility to be extremely flexible with the engineering solutions being delivered. A lot of things are open for discussion. It is not just an online dedicated server ordering system where you can order a server and nothing beyond. NovoServe is able to provide us with highly customized reseller hosting solutions matching our specific requirements.”

White Label Hosting

Built on NovoServe’s solid IaaS hosting infrastructure, JetServer is able to sell both very cheap, $4/month web hosting as well as tailor-made dedicated server environments to customers in Israel and beyond. “As the network connectivity between Israel and Europe is very good, clients actually don't feel the latency. Furthermore, with NovoServe, we are able to provide high-bandwidth, private 1GB line options for each client, something that is still not possible in Israel.”

Matching JetServer’s reseller hosting requirements including competitive pricing, NovoServe provides JetServer with a truly unique IaaS hosting solution. “We are using our own IP space from RIPE, doing a full white label solution,” added Mr. Alum. “Next to that, we are able to setup a private GRE tunnel between our sites and we are now working on a private FW solution for JetServer to give us the opportunity to bypass NovoServe’s engineering resources on FW rules.”

So, NovoServe’s flexibility in accommodating custom reseller hosting requests is very important for Jetserver. Why? “We have a great deal of Magento clients for example,” added Mr. Alum. “This open source technology provides ecommerce store owners with flexibility for their websites’ shopping carts. The Magento open source technology also means they have full control over the functionality and overall look of their online store. So flexibility and customization features are truly essential to online merchants. The same accounts for their web hosting requirements. NovoServe is delivering just that, they have endless engineering options and are willing to flexibly match the most demanding Magento ecommerce customer needs as well as the needs of our other clients with resource-intensive applications.”
