Fully Managed Dedicated Servers
Fully Managed Dedicated Servers are just that, machines dedicated exclusively to service just you and only you. Unlike shared, virtual or cloud environments where the server’s resources may be split among other users, a dedicated server will distribute 100% of its resources to power just your websites and applications. Dedicated servers outperform all other hosting environments hands down, the raw power without the added fluff of virtual layers and sharing resources amounts to full control and the absolute best performance in the industry. Together with our industry leading 24/7/365 expert management team. deployed on enterprise grade hardware. and being backed by our fully redundant tier 1 network. you can finally sleep easy.

Targeted Performance With Industry Leading Management
Our high-performance and fully redundant network utilizes enterprise grade networking and routing hardware to deliver highly optimized, low latency connectivity to all corners of the globe. Centrally located, Chicago is the most connected city in the world serving as a hub for most of the fiber that connects the East and West coasts of North America. This offers exceptionally low latency nation wide as well as to Europe and the Asia-Pacific region making our network ideal for trading, voice services and those with a global presence.
As with most things in life, all hardware is not created equal. Quality hardware goes the distance when budget machines fall short, premium features that we include standard such as IPMI, hot-swappable chassis and redundant 208v power help with reliability, but current generation Intel CPUs, DDR4 2133MHz RAM, server grade hard drives, Supermicro motherboards and enterprise grade RAID controllers deliver the real punch you’re looking for. We know the difference premium hardware makes because we have custom built everything by hand for years. There is a cost difference, sure, but we believe uptime and performance trumps a few dollars saved any day of the week.
No matter what you are hosting, whether it be a hobbyist’s blog or a fortune 500 corporate pillar, performance and load time will always be fundamental to a successful web presence. KISSmetrics, a leading Google analytics company reported that one half of the users on the web will leave a site if it doesn’t fully load in less than 3 seconds. By allowing BigScoots to optimize your hosting environment specifically for your website or application, whether it be WordPress, RHEL, or anything in between, you can efficiently utilize all your available resources which will drastically decrease load times and increases user experience helping you attract, keep and convert more visitors.

Pure SSD vs. SSD Accelerated
Pure SSD Storage
Services with Pure SSD Storage can deliver extremely high random as well as sequential reads and writes offering ultra-high disk performance. This means that whether you are running a basic WordPress website, a high stress database or application, enjoy a very large number of concurrent visitors on a regular basis, or anything in between, big or small, a Pure SSD service will increase its performance.
Our Pure SSD servers have at least 128GB RAM and 32 CPU cores utilizing only the latest enterprise grade, highly redundant equipment. The SSD drives themselves yield upwards of 150,000 IOPS each and are configured in a redundant hardware RAID10 cached environment. With the much higher hardware cost, you sacrifice capacity for performance.
SSD Accelerated Storage
Services with SSD Accelerated Storage provide far higher than average disk performance with the added benefit of maintaining the disk capacity of traditional drives. Standard workloads such as small traffic websites, production webservers or mid-traffic database driven sites that require higher storage than our Pure SSD solutions offer are ideal candidates.
Our SSD Accelerated services are built using the latest LSI CacheCade technology[!]. CacheCade works by having a SSD array, otherwise known as flash cache in front of the primary disk array thereby accelerating all incoming reads and writes. It dynamically keeps the hottest (most accessed) data stored on the SSD array so you can be sure that your most critical parts of your website or application are always moving at near-SSD speeds. While significantly faster than non-SSD accelerated hosting environments, there is still a performance decrease from our Pure SSD solutions – you are sacrificing performance for added storage.
