Web hosting provider and data center operator, Hetzner Online, has expanded its line of products to now include cloud servers. Hetzner Online houses its new and globally available cloud servers in their own data centers, which would adhere to strict German data protection laws and operate in accordance with ISO 27001.
Hetzner Online has released five different cloud models to the worldwide market. All five cloud servers revealed would be operated using high-end hardware. Intel Skylake Xeon CPUs together with NVMe SSDs would provide ample performance, enough even for the most demanding tasks. Customers may also choose between local storage and network storage (NVMe SSD RAID or Ceph).
Billing for the new Hetzner Cloud solution would be flexible while there is no minimum contract period. Each Hetzner Cloud model is capped at a maximum monthly price, but if customers only use their cloud environment a little, they are allowed to pay by the hour. Hetzner Online automatically charges customers the smaller of these two options.
The entry-level model, the CX11, includes 1 CPU, 2 GB RAM, 20 GB SSD and 20 TB of traffic. The model with the most resources, the CX51, includes 8 CPU cores, 32 GB RAM and 240 GB SSD.
Using Cloud Console, Hetzner customers would be able to create new server instances and deploy them almost instantly. Cloud Console also includes a feature with which customers can “easily” add team members and assign roles. This would make Hetzner Online’s Cloud Console ideal for administering larger team projects. With Cloud Console, customers may also use additional “low-cost” features such as backups, snapshots, and floating IPs with just a few clicks.
