Japanese company Mitene Internet was founded in 1996. It offers a broad spectrum of internet and cloud computing solutions, including IaaS cloud hosting, virtual domain hosting, SSL, and domain registration.
Mitene’s Japanese-language website displays prices in Japanese yen and its data centers are located in various Japanese cities: Tokyo, Fukui, Toyama, and Osaka.
Features and Ease of Use
Here’s what you can expect from Mitene Internet’s IaaS cloud hosting package:
- VMware with Fortinet security
- 99.99% uptime SLA
- 1 vCPU to 8 vCPU
- 512 MB to 32 GB RAM
- 50 GB to 1 TB disk space
- 10 Gbps bandwidth
The cloud hosting package is compatible with various operating systems, including Windows, CentOS, and FreeBSD.
Disk space is pretty limited compared with what I would expect from an advanced cloud hosting provider, and the storage is HDD rather than the far faster and more reliable SSD storage. Similarly, the RAM and bandwidth is pretty average and only really suitable for personal and small business websites. However, you can contact the customer support team to ask for higher resources.
Security features include antivirus, configurable VPN settings, and FortiGate for automated threat protection.
The combination of load balancers, redundant servers, and high-availability clusters allows Mitene to offer a 99.99% network uptime SLA.
Pricing and Support
Compared with other Japanese providers, Mitene Internet’s tax-exclusive prices are pretty high for the features on offer. You’ll also have to pay extra if you exceed your monthly bandwidth limit.
You have to contact the customer support team to place an order, which you can do by telephone or by filling out a very cumbersome inquiry form. Prior to purchase, you can learn more by referring to a comprehensive set of PDF documents, but be prepared to read Japanese.
