High performance and flexible Cloud Servers.
Billed by the minute, ready in seconds.
Brightbox Cloud Servers are on-demand, performance-optimised virtual machines, backed by enterprise-grade hardware and lightning-fast persistent storage.
Our high performance and highly available network provides each of your Cloud Servers with its own separate network segment, secure from spoofing or eavesdropping.
Use any OS, perhaps bring your own, or even PXE boot "bare metal" and install direct from the Internet!
Out-of-band access to your Cloud Servers is provided by an encrypted graphical console.
Instantly mappable Cloud IP addresses.
Move IPv4 addresses between your Cloud Servers and Load Balancers.
Grow and migrate your Brightbox Cloud applications seamlessly: Start with a single Cloud Server, then add a Load Balancer, then move back to a single server, then to a Server in a separate Zone - all without having to update DNS!
Cloud Firewall service.
Enforce powerful security policies for your cloud servers.
Brightbox Cloud firewall lets you control network access to, from and between your Cloud Servers. Its decentralised and scalable architecture avoids the single points of failure and bottlenecks associated with traditional firewall solutions.
Using groups you can instantly apply detailed security policies to many hundreds of servers, with complete control and flexibility.
Managing network security for large applications is effortless with Brightbox Cloud firewall.
Geographically isolated datacentre "Zones".
Effortlessly build highly-available systems which span multiple Brightbox datacentres.
Zones are physically separate Brightbox datacentre locations interconnected by our Brightbox Rapid Convergence Routing Fabric.
Cloud Load Balancers.
Geographic redundancy, fault tolerance and horizontal scalability for your app, in seconds.
Add fault tolerance and horizontal scalability to your systems by balancing traffic across a pool of Cloud Servers in multiple Zones. Brightbox Load Balancers are highly available across a Region - designed to tolerate the loss of an entire Zone without disruption!
Each Load Balancer can balance multiple protocols at once (HTTP, SSH, FTP etc) and can comfortably handle 5000 concurrent connections, with additional scaling options available soon.
No-fuss import/export of your Cloud Server images and snapshots.
Upload your own images and download your snapshots with ease. No lock-in here!
Managing Cloud Server images is a breeze with Brightbox - simply upload your OS images and download your snapshots as raw disk images via FTPS.
Share your OS images with other Brightbox users by making them "public".
Powerful API tools.
RESTful interaction with Brightbox Cloud.
There are also higher level Ruby and Python libraries available to get you started quickly.
Our flexible OAuth-based authentication system gives you fine grained control over who or what has access to your account and resources via the API.
