Discover the Xen virtualization technology
A total virtualization of resources
Xen is an open source virtualisation program that allows several operating systems to be run simultaneously and securely on a single machine. The levels of performance achieved by Xen are unequalled, and run an operating system through a range of resources (processor, memory,...) as quickly as an independent system.
Even better than a dedicated server
Unlike a dedicated server where you're limited to the power and the reliability of the machine installed (often a low-end), Gandi's servers are part of an easily upgradeable offer, a service usually only enjoyed by large clients.
The advantages of the high-tech virtualization technology we have developed based on Xen are real, and constitute significant advancements in the realm of web hosting.
Among which, for example:
Thanks to an automatic migration system, you will not be affected by any physical problems with the machine. If the machine that your server is on no longer responds, your server will be automatically migrated to another machine with no action necessary on your part.
Easy to evolve
Our machines are so powerful you will never feel squeezed. You may adjust and play with the power of your server without having to interrupt and migrate your services to another machine. If one machine is no longer enough, you may duplicate your machine and its configuration in just a few clicks.
You my add or remove shares when you wish, there is no minimum engagement period. You may even suspend your server and keep its current configuration if you no longer use it.
The choice of your system
Xen technology allows the installation of an operating system of your choice. A list of systems is already available. If you would like to request another, feel free to add it to our wishlist.
The security of your server
Xen technology gives you an unprecedented level of security for a virtualization system. No intrusion of other servers installed on your machine is currently possible.
Your disks can be made available to any of your servers, and will be installed on high-quality SAS RAID10 disks that are duplicated to guarantee the security of hosted files.
If you’re used to using a dedicated machine, Xen will not require you to change your habits. If you were on a shared machine, our Gandi AI service will take care of all necessary installation procedures for your website similar to shared hosting.
