What is a Hybrid Server?

A Hybrid Server is a slice of a Dedicated Server. Using KVM virtualization technology, we are able to create completely isolated environments for each server that include completely dedicated and guaranteed resources. KVM virtualization ensures that one user is not able to consume more than their fair share of resources. This ensures a stable and reliable server hosting experience.

What’s the Difference Between a Hybrid Server and a VPS?

Hybrid Servers and VPS are both similar to one another. The main advantage of a Hybrid Server is that there are only a few tenants on each physical server, whereas a VPS node is typically a very large dedicated server which is shared amongst dozens or even hundreds of VPSes.As a result, Hybrid Servers have a much more consistent and stable environment for users.

We’ve redesigned our Hybrid Server offering to provide more resources at a decreased cost. Each of our Hybrid Server plans is now powered by enterprise-grade Solid State Drives, delivering the ultimate disk performance.

We’ve reduced the number of Hybrid Server plans so that we can focus on the resource plans that modern Hybrid users demand. Our Hybrid lineup is split into two streams, E3 Lite Series and E3 Performance Series.
