24 Jul, Gloucester, UK: Fasthosts Internet,, a leading web hosting provider and cloud computing specialist, today launches their newest, most comprehensive range of dedicated servers to date. Built with developers, designers and agencies in mind, the new range will serve IT managers and network/systems engineers equally well. Using less power whilst enabling applications to run faster and smoother, the choice of two new operating systems and an updated server control panel- the range offers high performing servers to suit every need.

Developments to the Fasthosts' dedicated server range include the addition of the latest, fourth generation Haswell processors from Intel, offering heightened processing capabilities. The 950 is powered by an Intel i5 processor and is priced from £59.00 per month (PM) +VAT. It offers users 16GB RAM, 2 x 2TB SATA HDD and RAID 1 protection. Building on this, the flagship server of our mid-range models (1060) runs on the even more powerful Intel i7 processor with 2 x 2TB SATA HDD, 2 x 120GB SSD, 32GB RAM and also RAID 1. You can add Plesk 12 for just £14.99pm + VAT with either of these models.

Major updates to the Linux offering include the addition of Ubuntu 14.04, the newly released long term support version of the Linux operating system.
