VM's - Virtual Machines

A StreamGuys VM is a versatile hosting platform based on hypervisor based virtualization allowing efficient and scalable use of resources like CPU, RAM, DISK, and NETWORK.

What can I do with a VM?

A VM looks and behaves like any dedicated server, AND it provides a more flexible approach to hardware and physical components. The VM features unmatched reliability, security, and flexibility in a dedicated server environment. Feel free to pick the solution of your choice: streaming media, podcasting, video distribution, or even web development. StreamGuys builds and deploys your VM to our customers specification, meeting exacting standards of quality.

What makes a VM the most economical choice?

Flexibility and aggregate bandwidth billing does. Because a VM is a dedicated server capable of hosting multiple channels, applications, and projects under one unified system. The scale is very flexible allowing upgrades and downgrades to the services. Bandwidth is billed on the 95% peak percentile. We discard the top 36 hours of your traffic per month, so you're not penalized for a short amount of burst. This flexibility allows you to broadcast multiple channels and be billed as an aggregate of all services.
