Seeweb has seen a significant improvement with this service, which is more recent, more refined and more suitable for medium-large companies. Foundation Server Pro is a better performing dedicated hosting, because all its functions are developed to the highest level.
Foundation Server Pro is based on a redundant, scalable SAN storage. It allows to realize highly flexible, HA Private Cloud infrastructures sharing the storage (SAN). Foundation Server Pro are completely stateless, for an effective and immediate protection against failures.
Microsoft SQL Server licenses on Foundation Server Pro
You can activate the number of SQL Server licenses you need on Foundation Server Pro.
They can be used for the Virtual Machines created in the infrastructure and their cost depends on the number of cores.
Here follows the price list. You can anyway contact our pre-sales support service for any clarification.
|SQL License Type||Monthly cost||Monthly cost
FS Pro - 16 Core
FS Pro - 32 Core
|SQL Server Web||11,60 €||92,80 €||185,60 €|
|SQL Server Standard||206,20 €||1.649,60 €||3.299,20 €|
|SQL Server Enterprise||776,40 €||6.211,20 €||12.422,40 €|
Create your private cloud with Foundation Server PRO
Together with VMware or other hypervisor, Foundation Server PRO can support you in creating private cloud infrastructures. The VMware vSphere free licence is enough for projects requiring a single host and VMs with no more than 8 virtual cores.
For multi-cluster configurations it's necessary to add vCenter. In this way, you can also create no limits virtual machines and backup data with our Cloud Data Protection.
The base cost of VMware vCenter includes up to 10GB RAM (57,40 €/month). The pay-per-use cost is 5,46€/GB/month.

What are the main features of Foundation Server Pro?
It is an “Hi-End” server built on HPE and Cisco servers with 2 Intel Xeon Silver processors, starting from 64GB and up to 1024G of ECC RAM, with double Network card and double Fiber Channel card for storage.
At the level of the LAN and SAN infrastructure, the network connection speed is 10 Gbps, and this speed can be exploited for communication between servers of the same cluster.
What is the type of storage used?
Foundation Server Pro starts from 250 GB of enterprise-class SAN with high availability and high throughput. The redundancy of the connection between Server and Disk, through SAN Fiber Channel, guarantees stability and allows the continuous maintenance of hardware, without interrupting the service.
The Storage we provide with Foundation Server is a Storage Area Network (“Fibre Channel Native”): the ultimate in enterprise solutions.
What makes it different from the other dedicated servers?
Foundation Server Pro allows you to connect multiple servers to the same disk system, with no additional costs. If in a standard dedicated server creating redundant infrastructures would require sharing the storage with high costs and complexities, FS pro makes instead possible to create active /passive infrastructures with hot-spare resources, without any additional costs.
Foundation Server Pro, as a dedicated server, can be used for different applications (for example, for managing powerful Cloud Databases) and it is particularly suitable for Cloud Computing infrastructures.
It creates, in a simple and economical way, VMware or Windows Server clusters, aimed at creating Private Cloud architectures.
How can it be managed?
Fully manageable remotely, it also provides access to the server console through remote KVM. It is easy to use and, as in the case of Cloud Server, it allows you to increase the amount of disk quickly.
Dedicated VLANs can be created across multiple Foundation Server Pro.
If you also have Cloud Servers, it is also possible to connect them with a Foundation Server for creating a single network.
How does the billing works?
FS Pro is a flexible Dedicated Server like a virtual one. No long-term contract - if you no longer need it after one month, it is canceled. In addition, some components, such as Storage space, or Network traffic (1TB / month included) are pay per use.
