SBBS Solutions AB started its journey in 1989 when the world wide web was something new, and it has since become a reliable hosting provider with a diverse range of clients. On 1 January 2019, SBBS merged with Broadview AB to provide more strengthened and streamlined development and support.
SBBS offers an array of hosting services together with colocation services, storage solutions, high availability solutions, disaster recovery solutions, and outsourcing services. It also offers a complete solution named “Visma Total” that sees SBBS taking responsibility for the entire system.
The SBBS website is in Swedish.
Features and Ease of Use
The bouquet of services supplied by SBBS includes four managed hosting packages plus VPS packages, dedicated servers, and FTP hosting packages. Details are surprisingly scarce, except for the managed hosting services, which feature:
- 10 GB to 40 GB disk space
- 512 MB to 4 GB memory
- 2-core to 8-core processors
- Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP (LAMP) stack
- SMTP, IMAP, POP3
- Daily backups
- Installation of important updates
The software configurations support the Ubuntu operating system, the Drupal and TYPO3 CMS systems, and the Django and Ruby on Rails frameworks.
SBBS offers managed firewall solutions for enhanced security, and also disaster recovery solutions. Its high availability solutions (HAS) use load balancing, clustered hosting, replication, and failover to ensure your server never goes down.
Pricing and Support
The SBBS hosting packages are incredibly high-priced, but remember that these are managed hosting services rather than self-service shared hosting solutions. You can only pay with a credit card in Swedish krona, but not directly from the website. The purchase process is initiated by sending an email.
You can contact the SBBS customer service team via telephone, ticket, email, or online form, and sign up for premium support (at extra cost) that includes remote support. Unfortunately, my test ticket submissions received no responses. If you have to resort to self-support, you’ll find an adequate (but not extensive) knowledge base:
