A State-of-the-Art Cloud Platform Built for the Future

Tomorrow's technology today

Our cloud platform was built with 3 goals in mind: reliability, performance, and scalability. Choose the Rapid Servers Cloud and feel confident that your application will remain fast and responsive at all times. Our cloud scales on your demand to adapt to changing needs and different load patterns, allowing you to quickly add/remove resources with the click of a button.

By pairing OnApp's innovative technology with top of the shelf hardware, we are able to offer a fully automated cloud hosting service that outperforms our competitors.

Performance Benchmarks
Taken with UnixBench

The benchmarks were all run on similar configurations with ~2 MB RAM.

No more downtime

A true cloud solution should have no single point of failure and offer high availability (HA). The Rapid Servers Cloud combines dual power and network with automatic failover in case a hypervisor fails.

Supercharged performance

Our cloud uses only Solid State (SSD) storage, delivering unprecedented IO performance that positions us miles ahead of any competitor. In addition, each cloud server includes a 1 Gbps uplink for high speed network connectivity (10 times more than industry average).

Scales with your business

Nothing can be more hurtful to an online business than bad hosting. The Rapid Servers Cloud facilitates rapid growth with advanced features such as dynamic scaling and clustering/load balancing.

Rapid Servers Public Cloud
What Makes our Cloud Unique?

  • Fully Redundant

    A true cloud solution implies no single point of failure and high availability (HA). Our cloud features fully redundant network switches, power and storage with automatic failover.

  • SSD Storage

    Our cloud platform is built exclusively using super fast Intel SSD (Solid State Disks), delivering unprecedented IO performance that positions us miles ahead of virtually any competitor.

  • KVM Virtualization

    KVM is a virtualization layer that works directly on the kernel level, offering better performance and higher level of isolation (security) than any other virtualization technology.

  • Gigabit Network

    Every Rapid Servers cloud server includes a 1 Gbps network uplink port by default while most other providers are limited to 100 Mbps. This allows for higher transfer speeds.

  • 5 Minutes Deployment

    There is no need to wait for hours or days until you can start using your server. Our cloud servers are usually provisioned in a couple of minutes after your order has been received.

  • Local + SAN Storage

    Our cloud storage combines the redundancy of a RAID-10 SAN while also keeping a local copy of the data on the hypervisor running your cloud server, which reduce disk latency.

Rapid Servers Cloud Specifications

Powered by OnApp



Building and operating a modern cloud platform requires a deep understanding of virtualization technology, the Linux kernel and many other aspects. By using OnApp, an IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) suite of software, all the complexity of the cloud is hidden from the user, allowing us to fully automate complicated tasks such as the provisioning of new cloud servers, replication of data across the SAN, and providing on-demand scalability and automatic failover.

Hardware Specifications

All hypervisors have the following minimum specifications.

  • Dual Intel Xeon E5-26xx Series CPU or greater
  • Minimum 32 GB DDR3 ECC RAM
  • Intel Data Center Edition SSD in RAID10 with striping for up to 12 Gb/s read/write rate
  • Capable of 20 Gb/s network throughput which can be easily upgraded to 40 Gb/s
  • Separate public and private network ports (NIC), allowing unmetered, secure transfer between internal servers

Public Cloud Pricing and Details


Our public cloud offers straight-forward pricing that is easy to understand. You may choose to pay a monthly fixed price for your cloud server, or hourly, resource-based billing, where you only pay for the computing resources that your organization actually uses and nothing more. Our public cloud offers a unique multi-tenant environment where scaling resources is as easy as dragging a slider across the screen.

  • Bandwidth: Each cloud server includes 5 TB of outbound bandwidth and unlimited inbound bandwidth. Additional bandwidth can be purchased if needed.

  • Billing frequency: We bill weekly for cloud resources used. You will be invoiced once per week at the hourly rate agreed for usage that previous week.

  • Hourly billing: Clients are required to keep a minimum deposit of $5 at all times to cover the hourly expenses for their server.
