Pairone Networks Ltd. started its journey in 2008, right at the beginning of the cloud era. Although this company is located in Galway (Ireland), and its website is in English, its services are available to customers throughout Europe. Pairone Networks’ cloud infrastructure is housed in a secure, ISO 27001-certified, Tier III, carrier-neutral Dublin data center that uses 100% renewable energy sources.
Features and Ease of Use
This company offers three e-commerce business cloud plans and four cloud VPS plans. It also offers cloud hypervisor-based virtual machines (though the website displays dummy text), WordPress hosting, and Windows hosting.
The Business Cloud Hosting provides you with:
- Advanced self-service control panel
- 2 to 10 hosted websites
- 1 GB to 5 GB disk space
- 20 GB to 50 GB monthly bandwidth
- MySQL/MSSQL/PostgreSQL databases
- Free SSL certificate
- POP3/IMAP/Webmail and autoresponders
- SSH access
The one-click installer allows you to install a range of popular web applications without technical knowledge, and the custom cloud solutions include such things as Joomla/Magento e-commerce hosting. This company can also provide dedicated VPN connections to its cloud infrastructure, and SSH access provides secure remote command-line access to your server.
Pairone Networks’ infrastructure is hosted on enterprise-grade Dell servers complemented by high-performance Juniper hardware. Clustered firewalls protect against the latest security threats, and the dynamically scalable cloud services allow you to scale applications and servers as required. SSD cloud storage provides improved performance and reliability compared with traditional HDD storage.
Pricing and Support
Pairone’s cloud hosting plans are pricey, and you can pay for them monthly in euros. As far as I can see, there is no money-back guarantee.
You can contact this company via an online contact form, telephone, live chat, email, and even fax. Unfortunately, live chat was unavailable when I wanted to try it, and my exploratory email went unanswered. For self-support purposes, Pairone’s blog has been bare since 2016, and its searchable knowledge base seems to return no results.
