ServerMotion's Cloud platform allows access to a state-of-the-art infrastructure system that you can easily deploy your applications to, just as if you were on a dedicated server. The difference is that as the demands of your application change, you can adjust the resources allocated to your cloud server.

The ServerMotion Cloud is self-healing, so if one physical server fails, your cloud service remains online. In the event of a server failure, you never see downtime. Your application automatically fails over to another physical server and continues uninterrupted. Our cloud platform is designed to support multiple hardware failures without slowing your application performance down or causing downtime.

Application deployed on the ServerMotion Cloud are dynamically scalable. If your application is subjected to an unusually high demand, you can instantly scale the size of the cloud server to better support the needs of your deployment. Once the high demand period is over, you can scale down the allocated resources to keep costs under control.

How do I use the cloud?

Cloud instances appear to you as a normal dedicated server. You are provided with root access and can utilize the server in any way you wish. Although it appears as a normal dedicated server, your server is actually provisioned on a highly optimized set of servers that are connected to a high-performance Storage Area Network over a private, internal 1Gbps network.

If you need more resources, simply adjust the server configuration in our control panel. Once your server is restarted it will instantly appear to have the additional resources you assigned. If you need to restart, shut down, or reload the OS on your server, you can easily do that from the control panel. Since server restarts are not actual hardware resets, just restarting of the operating system, the amount of time a server restart requires is minimal.

You can create your server using any of these supported operating systems:

Cloud Hosting Windows

Microsoft Windows
Server 2008 R2 Enterprise x64
Server 2008 Enterprise x64
Server 2003 Standard x64

Cloud Hosting Ubuntu

Lucid Lynx 10.04 LTS x64
Hardy Heron 8.04 LTS x64

Cloud Hosting Gentoo

Gentoo Linux
10.1 x64

Cloud Hosting CentOS

5.5 x64
5.4 x64

Cloud Hosting Debian

6.0 (Squeeze) x64
5.0 (Lenny) x64

Cloud Hosting Elastix

2.0.0 x64

We also offer cPanel/WHM licenses ($12/mo) if you want to use it on a cloud server. cPanel/WHM is compatible only with CentOS cloud servers.

All servers are connected via a high-speed internal network. If you want to build a multi-server configuration and need to access a remote server, such as a dedicated database server, you can do this using the internal network.


What is a node?


Cloud instances are provisioned based on a number of nodes. Each cloud instance, or cloud server, is assigned one or more nodes. A node is simply a logical set of resources. A cloud instance is a combination of one or more nodes, from which the amount of associated resources and cost is determined.

One node equals:

  • Equivalent to 0.6GHz of CPU
  • 376MB of dedicated RAM
  • 10GB of high performance SAN storage
  • 250GB/month of Internet data transfer
  • Unlimited internal network transfer

To create a server, you simply purchase a set of nodes and assign it to a server. The resources for the server is provisioned based on the number of nodes assigned. You can add or remove nodes at anytime. You can also take existing nodes and consolidate or split servers. If you have 10 nodes, you can create one ten-node server, two five-node servers or five two-node servers and the cost will be the same.
