Web server

Let’s get technical! Here’s all the nitty-gritty server specs, if you’re into the nerdy stuff.

Our own dedicated web server, which we have named Palladium, is housed in a state-of-the-art data centre in Naaldwijk, The Netherlands, and provides optimal connectivity and security for your website.

Powerful and Energy Efficient Hardware

Powerful and Energy-Efficient Hardware

Our Palladium Server is a Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX2530 M4 machine, a powerful and energy-efficient server that delivers exceptional performance and scalability. It is powered by two Intel Xeon Gold 6130 processors, which can handle even the most demanding workloads with ease. The server’s 48GB REG ECC DDR4 RAM ensures smooth and stable multitasking, allowing the machine to run multiple applications simultaneously without any lag.

For lightning-fast data access and storage, our Palladium Server comes with a 500GB NVMe SSD single drive. This cutting-edge technology provides faster data transfer rates and lower latency, ensuring that your website loads quickly and efficiently.

Lightning Fast Connectivity

Lightning-Fast Connectivity and DDoS Protection

Our Palladium Server also offers ample traffic and uplink, with a guaranteed speed of 1Gbit/s up and 1Gbit/s down. This means that your website can handle high traffic volumes without any slowdowns or interruptions. Additionally, we provide a generous 100TB of traffic, so you don’t have to worry about exceeding your bandwidth limits.

To safeguard your website from cyber threats, our Palladium Server comes with a 40 Gbit/s DDoS protection, courtesy of the Worldstream DDoS Shield. This advanced security system can detect and mitigate DDoS attacks in real-time, ensuring that your website remains online and accessible to your visitors.

Sustainable energy supply

Sustainable Power Structure

At FourteenRockets, we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and promoting sustainable practices. The data centre in Naaldwijk, Netherlands where our Palladium server is located, is powered by 100% renewable energy. The data centre’s power is sourced from wind and solar, ensuring that our Palladium Server is not only high-performing but also environmentally friendly.

The data centre employs an innovative cooling system that uses outside air to cool the servers, reducing the need for energy-intensive air conditioning. This system, known as “free cooling,” allows the data centre to maintain optimal server temperatures while minimising energy consumption.

Secure and Stable Operating System with LiteSpeed

Secure and Stable Operating System

Our Palladium Server runs on Ubuntu 20.04, a stable and secure operating system that provides a solid foundation for your web applications. With regular security updates, Ubuntu 20.04 is the ideal choice for our dedicated hosting server.

To further enhance the performance and security of our Palladium Server, we make use of LiteSpeed Web Server on top of Ubuntu.

LiteSpeed is up to 9x faster than Apache and can handle high traffic efficiently. It also offers built-in DDoS protection, SSL/TLS support, and mod_security compatibility to secure your website. With HTTP/2 and QUIC support, your website will be up-to-date and future-proof.

palladium name

What’s in a name?

We thought it would be fun to come up with some interesting and appropriate names for our services. For our own web server, we decided on the name Palladium.

Palladium, a scarce and radiant silvery-white metal, is valued for its distinctive attributes such as remarkable corrosion resistance, superior electrical conductivity, and the ability to endure extreme temperatures.

It goes without saying that our web server is not made of palladium, but is named after the metal. Much like how the Palladium server is designed to deliver robust, reliable, and high-performance hosting solutions, the metal itself is a testament to resilience and performance under the most demanding conditions.
