Your virtual machine will be up and running in only few seconds.
Green: we operate with 99.9%* hydropower from the Alps.
Sustainable: we reuse existing factory halls instead of building everything new.
Safe: our VMs are all located in the Alps of Switzerland - the safest location imaginable in the world.
Modern: we have a modern and alternative design for a datacenter.
(*0.1 % of our energy generated from solar power.)
Everything we use, create and encourage is Free and Open Source Software. You find our source code online and we even document our whole data center setup publicly.
Have you ever wanted a feature in a software, a product or an infrastructure and got frustrated that your provider would just not support it? We've certainly been there. And that is why we decided to open up our infrastructure.
Our goal is to let you, our users, fully profit from our transparent improvement and growth. You can access our processes, architecture, technologies, and more on our open infrastructure page.
Data Center Light fully supports IPv6 and IPv4. Your virtual machine can be reached from IPv6 only networks.
While Data Center Light fully supports IPv4, we strongly believe the future is with IPv6. Explore our IPv6 initiatives:
IPv6onlyhosting - super affordable IPv6 VM
IPv6 Shop - IPv6 VM, IPv6 VPN, IPv6 Box, IPv6 goodies
Data Center Light uses SSDs for the Operating System. You also have the option to attach HDD space for bigger needs (100GB+).
Data Center Light is the child of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) movement. We grew up with it, live by it, and believe in it. The more we work on our datacenter, the more we contribute back to the FOSS community.
One way of us giving back to the FOSS community is our famous biannual hackathon, Hack4Glarus - where we invite hackers with brilliant ideas to come to Data Center Light, and support them to freely and openly exchange, develop and implement great ideas.
