dedicated server

VANCOUVER, BC – Canadian Web Hosting, a leading provider in web hosting, cloud hosting, and data centre infrastructure, has announced that it has once again successfully completed its annual independent audit for Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II, in accordance to AT 101, making this its eight consecutive year of completion.

The SOC 2 Type II audit was conducted for the period between February 1, 2017 and January 31, 2018 and examined all of Canadian Web Hosting’s services, including dedicated server hosting, cloud hosting, Canadian colocation, and web hosting services. The audit process scanned Canadian Web Hosting’s compliance to industry best practices, covering controls, processes and procedures. Upon completion, it was determined that its control activities were compliant and the company displayed the ability to effectively operate throughout the reporting period.


Canadian Web Hosting is AT 101 SOC 2 Type II compliant to meet data and security requirements for its customers. The SOC 2 Type II report is available upon request and can be obtained by customers, members of the media, or other interested individuals.

One of Canadian Web Hosting’s core missions is to help businesses meet their certification requirements in accordance with AT 101 (formerly SAS70 and CSAE 3416 Type II), which meets the new international service organization standards for Type I and Type II reporting. As a result, its web hosting customers that have services including dedicated servers, VPS, cloud servers, cloud computing, cloud storage, and/or shared hosting can feel confident that they are in a secure environment equipped with the proper controls for internet operations and highly available IT services.

“Canadian Web Hosting has always understood the need to provide customers with a reliable, safe and secure hosting environment. By going through our annual AT101 SOC 2 Type II audit, we assure our customers that we are committed to this,” said Kings Wong, VP of Operations at Canadian Web Hosting and Certified Information Security Manager (CISM). “Our clients can feel assured that they are receiving the technology, support and verifiable processes that exceed industry standards for compliance.”

Amsterdam, The Netherlands – 3W Infra, a fast growing Infrastructure-as-a-Service hosting provider from Amsterdam with global operations and more than 4,600 dedicated servers under management, today announces the launch of its new mid-end and high-End dedicated server plans. These hosting packages are powered by Dell’s latest, 14th generation PowerEdge server technology. 3W Infra expects to enhance its innovative power later on this year by adding AMD-powered (next to Intel-powered) Dell equipment.

3W Infra’s new high-end and mid range dedicated server packages are powered by Dell PowerEdge R440 and Dell PowerEdge R540 respectively. These server hardware types will replace the previous 3W Infra server packages based on R430 and R530. As a provider of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions on a global scale, 3W Infra has thoroughly tested the 14th generation Dell hardware and expects these new dedicated server plans to cater to the efficiency and performance needs, even the most demanding ones of a variety of its existing and new customers worldwide.

3W Infra Test Bench Data Center Amsterdam

“3W Infra engineers have run multiple test with both of these Intel-powered Dell server types on the test bench in our flagship data center in Amsterdam and they found remarkable improvements when compared to the previous generation of Dell servers,” said Roy Premchand, Managing Director of 3W Infra. “Our testing results show that the equipment is delivering serious efficiency and performance enhancements, as promised by Dell.”

“Providing up to 140 TB (!) storage capacity, 3W Infra’s new high-end dedicated server offering is able to efficiently handle high-capacity business workloads,” added Mr. Premchand. “This would make the R540 dedicated server package ideal for applications like software-defined storage, messaging, video streaming and virtualization, to name a few. 3W Infra’s mid-end R440 dedicated server plan on the other hand is optimized for high-density, scale-out computing. This makes it an ideal solution for running virtualization applications and web serving. With its dual processor architecture and ample storage and memory, our R440-powered dedicated server is a good fit for HPC applications as well as standard business applications – for businesses looking for performance but also for efficiency within their dedicated server environments.”

Equipped with ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification for Information Security Management together with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance, the new dedicated servers are located in 3W Infra’s flagship data center in Amsterdam – an Open Compute Project (OCP) ready data center with scalable power modules starting at 5 Ampere per cabinet up to 25 Ampere for high-density requirements.

Key features of 3W Infra’s new R540 (high-end) dedicated server package include:
• Dual Intel Xeon Scalable (Skylake-SP) CPU – up to 20 cores
• 512 GB DDR4
• Dell Remote Access and Lifecycle Controller (iDRAC9 Enterprise)
• Hardware RAID (PERC): Dell PowerEdge RAID Controller
• Up to 12x 3.5” SAS/SATA HDD
• Supports NVMe SSDs
• Up to 20Gbps dedicated uplink to 3W Infra’s high volume (160Gbps of bandwidth), fully redundant and continuously expanding global network
• Operating Systems: Microsoft Windows Server with Hyper-V, VMware ESXi, Ubuntu, CentOS, Debian, or BSD.
• Free-of charge dedicated server setup

Key features of 3W Infra’s new R440 (mid-end) dedicated server package include:
• Dual Intel Xeon Scalable (Skylake-SP) CPU – up to 22 cores
• 512 GB DDR4
• Dell Remote Access and Lifecycle Controller (iDRAC9 Enterprise)
• Hardware RAID (PERC): Dell PowerEdge RAID Controller
• Up to 4x 3.5” Hot Plug HDD
• Supports NVMe SSDs
• Up to 20Gbps dedicated uplink to 3W Infra’s high volume (160Gbps of bandwidth), fully redundant and continuously expanding global network
• Operating Systems: Microsoft Windows Server with Hyper-V, VMware ESXi, Ubuntu, CentOS, Debian, or BSD.
• Free-of charge dedicated server setup

AMD-Powered Dell Servers

3W Infra already has laid its eye on Dell’s very recently introduced PowerEdge servers (R6415, R7415, and R7425) with AMD’s Epyc 7000 processors inside. As with the Intel-powered dedicated servers launched today, it will support NVMe SSDs. If the promised performance, efficiency and reliability results will turn out to be as great as expected when being put on 3W Infra’s test bench, the company will definitely embrace the AMD technology and have 3W Infra’s dedicated server plans powered by AMD processors.

“The R6415 and R7415 servers seem to be able to provide two-socket performance from a single-socket server,” added Mr. Premchand. “This would provide us and our clients with tremendous savings and a much lower TCO figure, savings that would add up as we expect to scale-up 3W Infra’s amount of servers under management significantly in the coming year. The AMD-powered Dell servers are available on the market already, but we will first let our engineers put them on our test bench. In line with 3W Infra’s highly flexible approach and customized offerings though, we may be able to offer these servers – just as any other Dell server type and configuration – before the official dedicated server package launch later on this year.”

You have to hand it to cloud vendors — they have incredible marketing. If you are new to infrastructure hosting, you might be forgiven for thinking that the cloud is the only option, that anything else is just so last century. In reality, dedicated servers remain the go-to infrastructure platform for many experienced engineers. Why? Because dedicated servers are cost effective, offer unbeatable performance, and, most importantly, control. A dedicated server is just what it sounds like: a powerful computer with on-board processors, RAM, and storage, located in a data center that provides power, cooling, and redundant connections to the Internet. Cloud platforms use virtual servers, on top of which they layer a hypervisor, guest operating systems, and the user’s software. Dedicated servers are sometimes called bare metal servers because your operating system and software run as close to the physical hardware — the bare metal — as possible. There are good reasons for a virtualization…
