VERnet DC is a leading Latvian data center owned by leading ISP, VERSIJA. It does dedicate and virtual servers, but its VPS plans (reviewed here) are expensive, and you can't buy them entirely online.

Overview

VERnet DC

Although the VERnet DC data center was set up in 2011, parent company VERSIJA was founded in 1991. This Latvian internet service provider claims to offer the best value-for-money solutions from the data center that offers virtual servers, dedicated servers, colocation, rack rental, and associated services.

VERnet DC’s website supports the English, Russian, and Latvian languages.

Features and Ease of Use

VERnet DC

VERnet DC offers five virtual-server and five dedicated-server packages. The VPS packages provide you with:

  • 30 GB to 160 GB HDD
  • Unlimited traffic
  • 1 GB to 8 GB RAM
  • FreeBSD, Linux, and Windows operating systems
  • 2-core to 8-cores processors
  • DNS zone records

VERnet DC’s VMware virtual servers have server accessibility monitoring services with immediate notification of issues, and they’re administered via the reliable vSphere control panel.

The data center itself supports Tier 2 and Tier 3 requirements, which means you are assured a certain level of service.

Pricing and Support

VERnet DC’s VPS prices are significantly higher than the industry average. You can pay in euros or U.S. dollars on monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual billing cycles via PayPal or credit/debit card, and maybe also by bank transfer. The 7-day free trial could be a little too short to fully assess the services, but this is not unusual for virtual server solutions.

I don’t like the fact that you can’t purchase plans online, so you have to contact the company first. You can make contact by telephone, fax, email, or online contact form. My contact form submission received a reply after about four hours to confirm that there is no uptime guarantee (but an SLA can be offered if required):

VERnet DC

No self-support resources are evident, but — again — this is not all that unusual for virtual and dedicated server providers.

Bottom line on VERnet DC

VERnet DC could be a logical choice of Latvian virtual server provider (with its own data center) if you don’t mind paying a higher price than you might get elsewhere.

Pros

  • 7-day trial period
  • Part of leading ISP, VERSIJA
  • Vendor-owned data center
  • Responsive pre-sales support

Cons

  • Can’t purchase plans from the website
  • No self-support resources
