fastpipe.io - Cloud Servers - Frankfurt, Germany - Free BGP for LET members!
fastpipe.io (former kms-hosting.com) is a brand of combahton IT Services, offering Cloud Servers within various data centers in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
In order to provide a reliable and outstanding service, combahton operates own hardware, network infrastructure and heavily uses self developed applications. Thousand lines of C, PHP and Python code has been written since our early days back in 2012.
Our Cloud Servers are operated on latest hardware of well known vendors like HP Enterprise and Supermicro. In terms of network equipment, we trust on Juniper Networks, which provide us with professional switching and routing gear for 10Gbit/40Gbit operation.

Some key features of our Cloud Servers
Excellent connectivity: By default, every cloud server node is connected with 2x 10Gbit to our network. This provides network-level resilience, fast data transfers, and best performance even at peak times. Network-intensive applications are excellently stored with us.
DDoS-Protection: Our cloud servers includes our exclusive DDoS protection. Once your instance gets attacked, within seconds our protection infrastructure activates and filters out bad traffic. Even DDoS attacks on web applications are filtered out by our DDoS protection.
Additional IP-Addresses: You can add additional IP addresses (from 1.49€) and subnets (from 6.95€) to your instance. The setup takes place immediately, the reserved address ranges are routed to an instance of your choice, you can set the reverse DNS entries yourself. If you want to use your own IP networks, we offer BGP sessions and BGP announcements.
Daily Backup: Data loss is annoying. Accordingly, our cloud server nodes are equipped with several hard drives (hardware raid) as standard. You can avoid the risk of self-generated data loss with minimal effort through our automated snapshot backups. For this purpose we make a complete backup of your server daily between 02:00 to 10:00 am.
Scale at any time: Do you need more CPU power, memory or disk space instant? Scale your server automatically to the next higher level, fully automated and without changing the existing configuration or data. We only charge you the difference in connection with the current remaining term.
Virtual Private Lan: Create your own, isolated networks with our Virtual Private Lan (VPL). VPLs behave like V-Lans and provide an internal network between different instances where you can freely use your own IP addresses. Choose between 1Gbit, 2Gbit or 5Gbit interfaces.
Free BGP (BETA) - Limited time deal: Already own an AS and IP-Space? For new customers, we provide a limited time deal. Get a free BGP Session within the next 14 days and announce your own ip-space. Just open a ticket after your server has been provisioned and tell us your ASN and Prefixes. We will configure the session within two business days.
