Brightbox Cloud Servers are on-demand, performance-optimised virtual machines, backed by lightning-fast SSD storage and our next generation network. Creating a new cloud server takes as little as 30 seconds!
Zones are physically separate datacentre facilities interconnected by our superfast and secure network. For true redundancy, simply create Cloud Servers in both Zones and use Load Balancing to distribute traffic across them.
Brightbox is a completely independent, wholly owned UK company. No staff outside of the UK have access to infrastructure and your data never leaves the UK.
Our high performance and highly available network provides each of your Cloud Servers with its own separate network segment, secure from spoofing or eavesdropping.
Brightbox Cloud firewall enables you to effortlessly manage access to, from and between your Cloud Servers. Its distributed architecture avoids the single points of failure and bottlenecks associated with many firewall solutions.
Brightbox Cloud works with any operating system. Choose one of our "official" images, import your own, or even PXE boot from the Internet!
Access to Brightbox Cloud Servers is passwordless. Simply add your SSH public key to your account and the keys are automatically added to new servers.
Cloud Servers can PXE boot from the network instead of loading the installed operating system - providing endless options for using obscure operating systems and rescuing broken servers.
Our browser-based graphical console enables you to connect securely to your Cloud Servers to view what is being output to screen - incredibly useful for diagnosing boot issues.
Brightbox cloud servers support native IPv6 connectivity, and can be directly accessed via IPv6 before a Cloud IP is mapped to them. Our firewall is also dual-stack.
