Our virtual machine policy forbids us to allow over-allocation of our servers.  That means at all times there must be at least half of the resources remaining on the machine to keep overall load to acceptable levels.  This also leaves room for operations, backups, snapshots, and memory bursting.  So, if you're wondering why we may be a little higher than another competitor out there, we invite you to try the VM's side by side and run a few tests.  You'll find the performance of our VM's are near- bare metal and near- native performance.  We don't believe you should have to fight for the resources you pay for.  You are protected by a risk-free 7-day Guarantee.
