Cloud hosting for busy developers
not just network wizards.

We invented BigV ourselves and based it around our 8 years of experience with real hosting customers. Other cloud services want you to bend your application to suit them. We made better decisions so you can run your hosting the way it suits you. Let our pixellated software developers tell you:

Scale vertically

I like to scale vertically.

BigV's 180GiB servers mean that I don't have to optimise my code before I'm ready - that means more code, and faster!

Flexible discs

I like having real discs.

BigV gives me a choice of permanent storage options, so I don't have to worry about slow I/O speeds or disappearing data.

Just like a dedicated server

Root access is brilliant!

Installing my server is easy because I can use my own CD-ROM, and see the VM's screen like I'm in front of a real server.


Horizontal scaling - wow!

I can program BigV to provision lots of servers at peak times, but can pay for only a day at a time. That's a real saving over dedicated servers.

Just like a dedicated server

I'm not a Linux guru

… but that's OK because Bytemark gave me a very reasonable price for managing my servers for me.


I just like Bytemark

…they built BigV themselves, their own servers and answer the phone when I've got a problem. They're a small team and don't pass the buck!
