A virtual private server on shared physical hardware
A virtual private server, as its name suggests, is not a physical server of its own but a virtual machine run on a shared computer that can for example also host other virtual servers. From the user’s point of view, however, a virtual private server largely functions as an independent, private server dedicated exclusively to the user’s needs.
Our VPS customers are allocated an amount of storage and processing power that fits their requirements. The amounts are flexible and can be increased later if necessary. As server OS options we offer both Linux and Windows. Our customers can use either VMware or HyperV as their virtualization platform.
Our virtual private server service includes maintenance and repairs of the service platform. The standard package that we offer also includes a 30-day snapshot backup, 100 Mbps broadband, 1 public IP, firewall and VPN capability. However, other kinds of VPS packages can also be agreed upon.
1 processor, 1 GB memory, 100 GB SSD storage, 30-day snapshot backup.
1 processor, 4 GB memory, 100 GB SSD storage, 30-day snapshot backup.

Virtual private server in a secure, state-of-the-art data center
All our hosting services, virtual private servers included, are run on hardware located in our own state-of-the-art data centers that provide efficient cooling and uninterrupted power. We use a dry extinguishing system to prevent fires and our staff monitos the premises 24/7 to make sure your data is secure.
Environmentally friendly, high-performance hosting service
North Shore has two data centers in Jakobstad and one in Vasa. The nearby Baltic Sea provides our data centers with plenty of cost-effective natural cooling, allowing high performance computing in our data centers. Our data centers are in normal conditions powered by 100 % green energy, provided by the Finnish electricity company Herrfors. Backup power is provided by generators. The Ostrobothnia region where the data centers are located has very fast and reliable data connections, both to the rest of Finland as well as to the Nordics and the rest of Europe.
