Why is BigScoots Better?

In the highly competitive industry of hosting where over 100,000 businesses operate with the assumption that they too are offering a quality service, it is difficult to plainly answer why we believe BigScoots to be the better choice. What we can share however are some factoids that we believe set us apart from the pack.

Since BigScoots day one over 5 years ago we made the decision to offer only premium services. Having been on the other side of the fence we knew what good hosting was and having not been able to find it, we decided it was up to us to deliver. Good hosting to us means the support and management team know us by name, they know our servers inside and out, they have hands on the equipment and capable staff able to handle issues from the basics that require patience and understanding all the way through incredibly exciting mission critical deployments. With a down to earth team professionally trained and formally educated, it was within our scope but were we up to the task?

premium approach to hosting

Premium approach to hosting 5 years later we now sit with hundreds of reviews behind us and not a single one is negative. Since our inception we have delivered on the promises we set out on, not dropping the ball a single time. We pour our hearts and souls into BigScoots and as a small efficient team are able to spend the extra hours with the clients that need it the most to deliver real business changing results like no one else can.

Our Promise

service and management We promise to deliver better hardware, better management and support, a better network and better human interaction which we believe at the end of the day adds up to a better host. We want you to hold us accountable to our promises and if at any point in time we drop the ball and aren’t the best host you’ve ever had, you can expect a full refund, no questions asked (psst, you’d be the first).

We want challenges, we want to meet more of the fantastic people that make up this world of ours, we want to help you make your business better and above all, we want the opportunity to show you what we’re made of. Give us a chance, let us show you why we’re the last host you’ll ever need.

Pure SSD vs. SSD Accelerated

Pure SSD Storage

Services with Pure SSD Storage can deliver extremely high random as well as sequential reads and writes offering ultra-high disk performance. This means that whether you are running a basic Wordpress website, a high stress database or application, enjoy a very large number of concurrent visitors on a regular basis, or anything in between, big or small, a Pure SSD service will increase its performance.

Our Pure SSD servers have at least 128GB RAM and 32 CPU cores utilizing only the latest enterprise grade, highly redundant equipment. The SSD drives themselves yield upwards of 150,000 IOPS each and are configured in a redundant hardware RAID10 cached environment. With the much higher hardware cost, you sacrifice capacity for performance.

SSD Accelerated Storage

Services with SSD Accelerated Storage provide far higher than average disk performance with the added benefit of maintaining the disk capacity of traditional drives. Standard workloads such as small traffic websites, production webservers or mid-traffic database driven sites that require higher storage than our Pure SSD solutions offer are ideal candidates.

Our SSD Accelerated services are built using the latest LSI CacheCade technology[!]. CacheCade works by having a SSD array, otherwise known as flash cache in front of the primary disk array thereby accelerating all incoming reads and writes. It dynamically keeps the hottest (most accessed) data stored on the SSD array so you can be sure that your most critical parts of your website or application are always moving at near-SSD speeds. While significantly faster than non-SSD accelerated hosting environments, there is still a performance decrease from our Pure SSD solutions – you are sacrificing performance for added storage.
