This hosting firm recommends users to use its virtual datacenter services that come with excellent features. The services include storage replication where your data is replicated across 3 storage nodes, secure connections via VPN or Layer 3 links, offsite replication of your cloud in a different location, and a platform to help users manage their templates and scripts.
Although Xelon does not perform backup services for its client’s website data, it has made an effort to provide both onsite and offsite backup space. With these backup storage systems, customers can easily create backups of their websites for the protection of their data in the event of a disaster.
Pricing and Support
Xelon server solutions do not include a price tag and I suppose you would have to contact them for a quote. That said, its virtual datacenter (VDC) adopts a pay-as-you-go pricing model where payments are made every hour.
With that in mind, the solutions don’t come with a refund policy or free trial period. All the same, its dedicated servers come with a 99.9% network availability.
With Xelon, customers can choose between its standard 8 am to 5 pm telephone or email support or its extended support with up to 24/7 customer support. Users can also send a ticketing system or contact the vendor’s technical support staff through a contact form. That said, the vendor does not have live chat support.
Xelon has a knowledge base with about 20 tutorials and articles.
