Rack Unit - 3U

1. Server housing 


Rackspace is the physical space you need to place your hardware in a colocation space, this is displayed in height units (U's), modern hardware is mostly 1U high. Before making your choice please check your height and power requirements.


The choice you make depends on the amount of power that your equipment uses. LeaseWeb offers a large range of power options, ensuring that you are able to choose the perfect solution.


Data Center

Datacenter; this is the location where your hardware is placed. LeaseWeb currently has 9 data centers ; AMS-01 (Haarlem - NL), AMS-12 (Amsterdam - NL), AMS-11 (Amsterdam - NL), FRA-10 (Frankfurt - DE), DAL-10 (Dallas - US), SFO-12 (San Jose – US), WDC-01 (Manassas - US), HKG-10 (Hong Kong – HK) and SIN-11 (Singapore - SG).

Access Cards

Remote Management

With Keyboard Video and Mouse (KVM) LeaseWeb offers you the possibility to access your server if other methods fail. The KVM over IP is comparable with ILO from HP and DRAC from Dell. The solutions above are part of Remote Management, a service which gives you the option to switch your server on or off, reboot your server or change the BIOS order. KVM over IP offers more Remote Management options than Remote Power Management.

2. Network 

Uplink Port Speed

The uplink port is the maximum network connection speed from the server to the Internet. All servers have a 100/1000 Mbps network card connected for Internet traffic. Our 10 Gbps servers are, of course, supplied with 10 Gbps network cards. Weekly, monthly, and yearly bandwidth graphs are available in real time via the Customer Portal (CP), LeaseWeb’s customer portal. You can also view the projected bandwidth during a billing cycle to help you plan for future needs.


LeaseWeb takes network customization and financial flexibility to a new level by offering 2 network choices.The Volume network includes an economical mix of transit providers allowing for the lower cost to be passed on to the customer. The Premium network includes more transit providers and better speed to those hard to reach providers on the Internet. LeaseWeb can meet all your network requirements - depending on the type of application you are hosting at LeaseWeb we are able to recommend different networks at varying price points and grades of service.

LeaseWeb will automatically route traffic to third party networks via a private peering connection if such a connection exists between the LeaseWeb private backbone and the third party network for highest quality of service. LeaseWeb is also a member of 18 public internet exchanges and has many peering arrangements to insure optimum network performance. If no peering connections have been established with a specific provider, then the data is routed via a paid transit connection over different sets of Tier1 transit providers depending on the network setup chosen by the customer.

Volume Network
The Volume network provides no less than one default tier1 transit provider and selected private and public peering on multiple physical connections. This network is engineered to provide a cost-efficient solution to high bandwidth needs which do not need the actively optimized and more expensive transit providers found in the premium mix. LeaseWeb supports port aggregation to ensure the most efficient usage of customers hardware thus providing additional savings and financial advantages.

Premium Network
The Premium network is built to fit the requirement of customers with demanding applications which require fulll redundancy and the ability to leverage latency, international routing performance, and an overall faster and reliable network experience. The Premium network integrates a robust network Service Level Agreement, and leverages several uplinks and our superior networking design to accomplish outstanding performance and reliability. The usage of multiple best quality Tier1 transit providers, diverse private and public peering allows LeaseWeb to always use the best available path with the lowest latency and highest connection quality, thus bypassing any network congestions. The typical Premium network segment is equipped with two Cisco routers, each one connected to different core routers via separate physical connections, and uses both gateway and uplink redundancy to ensure non-stop routing and reachability.
