Unique Web Interface

Nitrado always gives high priority to usability and ease-of-use. Nothing changes for the Public Cloud. The Nitrado Web Interface always provides access to the important features of your server.

HPE 3PAR StoreServ SSD Storage

Your server's data within the Public Cloud is stored on a central storage server. This results in enormous processing speeds and high data integrity.

As with all products, Nitrado aims to provide the best possible hardware for Cloud Servers. For storage this promise is kept not only by exclusively using top quality SSD storage, but also by managing it within a centralized high-performance storage by HPE.

Tremendous robustness against data loss and access times below one millisecond are only two of the many advantages this storage system brings to the table.

Also suited for Developers

The Nitrado Public Cloud is also well suited for developers. Various tasks can be completely automated via the modern REST API. Just stop by at our official Github Account to download offical SDKs.

State-of-the-Art Open Source Technology

For its Public Cloud, Nitrado relies on the most up-to-date open source technologies and contributes to various projects to push the open source community forward further.

FAQ General Questions

What is a Public Cloud?

A Public Cloud is a great combination of enormous computing capacity with great flexibility. This consists of a central enterprise SSD storage at Nitrado, which is in itself fail-safe due to redundant RAID controllers, as well as redundant power supply. The other major parts are the so-called Compute Nodes on which the Cloud Servers are started. These are often referred to as vServers, VPS or Root Servers. The Compute-Nodes are constantly expanded to guarantee optimal server performance. This configuration also enables live migrations of the instances to provide enough power at load peaks.

What is a Cloud Server?

A Cloud Server is a Virtual Server, also known as "vServer", "VPS" (Virtual Private Server" or Root Server, which can be dynamically expanded or reduced. This server shares resources of a so-called compute node (see "What is a public cloud?") and has a very high availability through the infrastructure provided by Nitrado. The cloud server can be individually configured and has the number of CPU cores (vCPU), memory, SSD storage, traffic, number of IP addresses, as well as the operating system.

What can be done with a Cloud Server?

With a Cloud Server rented by Nitrado, all services which can run under the selected operating systems can be installed. This includes from game and voice servers, like Minecraft, ARK: Survival Evolved, as well as Teamspeak 3 servers, to web hosting (for e.g. wordpress or forums and wikis). On such a vServer or VPS, of course, several applications can be installed and started simultaneously.

How can I login to the Cloud Server?

On a cloud server, as with vServer or VPS, there is full access to the operating system. For Linux, by default, access is available as a "root" user via SSH (for example, with PuTTY) right after the installation. Windows Servers, on the other hand, can be managed by Remote Desktop (RDP) as an administrator.

Can we install Game Servers in a Cloud Server?

Nitrado offers special images for which an extended web interface for installation and administration of services (for example Game Servers) is available. A background process (daemon) is started on the rented cloud server, which communicates with the nitrado backend in an encrypted form to perform actions in the web interface. This allows fast and secure communication between the web interface and the server. New game or voice servers can then simply be installed and configured via a few clicks.

How long does it take for a Virtual Server to be created and ready to use?

The setup, as well as downgrades and upgrades of the Nitrado Cloud Server are provided or executed in a few seconds fully automated.

Is there any additional costs? What happens if I exceed my Monthly Traffic?

At Nitrado we believe in the concept of prepaid services, and this has also been implemented with our cloud servers.
You have total control over all incurring costs. Even if you exceed your monthly ultra speed traffic volume, the bandwidth will only be reduced to 100 MBit/s - still enough for the vast majority of applications, and without additional cost.

You can then choose to book additional ultra speed traffic if higher bandwidth is required.

Who has access to my Server?

Only a selected Team of highly experienced Nitrado Administrators have access to the Cloud Server infrastructure. They are also the developers and managers of this environment.

Our internal policies prohibit any access to data within the Cloud Server without our explicit consent. We are committed to the ethics code for system administrators and, as a German company, are additionally bound to the (internationally unique and especially strict) German Data Protection Act.

Is there an API? What is the Nitrapi?

At Nitrado, we are proud to meet, and in many cases surpass, the current best practices. For the next few years, we are striving to achieve industry's certifications, which will confirm the safety of our systems from the official point of view. Our solution is designed in such a way, that it can also be provided to companies with particularly high demands.

When talking about security in hosting environments, there are a lot of small aspects which must all be correctly implemented. Some are visible to the customer (for example, the handling of employee passwords), but the majority concern internal processes.

This includes, among other things: proper risk analysis, secure defaults and server hardening, a security patching workflow, strict code signature validation, internal network protection, secure and standardized workstation configuration and more.

FAQ Technical Questions

Is there an API? What is the Nitrapi?

Many functions on our website and the web interface are also accessible via an API (programming interface). We use the Nitrapi internally for our own web interface and make all changes immediately available to the community.

For example, you can add a button on your own website to restart a server or to view the status. You would like to order 500 servers? No problem! (Presupposed you have the credit, but also for recharging accounts there is an API!)

This also applies to our gameserver offer and is unique in this form in the industry.

Swift SDK:

It is also very easy to use with other programming languages, you need just a RESTful HTTP library.

Which virtualization method does Nitrado use?

The Nitrado Cloud Servers are fully virtualized thanks to KVM (Qemu). Compared to more inflexible solutions such as OpenVZ, this method has the advantage that, for example, Linux can be installed with its own kernel. The hypervisor (compute-node) - the basis of the virtual servers - offers the highest security thanks to the SELinux enabled.

Which Operating Systems (OS) are available?

In our Nitrado Cloud Servers, various operating systems (images) are available for every need. These can be roughly divided into Linux and BSD, as well as Windows. The following images are currently available: Arch Linux (Plain), CentOS 7 (Plain), CentOS 8 (Plain), Debian 10 (Plain), Debian 9 (Plain), Fedora 29 (Plain), Fedora 30 (Plain), Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Daemon), Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Plain), Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Plain), Ubuntu 19.04 (Plain), Windows Server 2016 Standard (Plain), Windows Server 2019 Standard (Plain)

How many IPs does the Cloud Server have?

Each Nitrado Cloud Server receives an IPv4 and an IPv6 address by default. Currently we do not offer further IP addresses.

How fast is a CPU Core/vCore?

The CPUs (Processors) used by Nitrado in their Cloud Server Compute-Nodes are Intel Xeon E5-2699v4 running at 2.2-3.6GHz. Every server node includes two of these processors, which results in 44 (real) CPU Cores per node.

What is the bandwidth of a Nitrado Cloud Server?

In order to guarantee the highest connection speeds at any time, each VM is connected with symmetrical 1 Gbit/s. This speed is also achieved in real cases. The actual data rate depends, of course, on other factors (protocol overhead, bandwidth of the remote host, ...). The connection of the physical servers (Hypervisor) is, as expected, many times higher (10-20 Gbit/s).
