What are Dedicated Speed Servers?
For organizations that need guaranteed predictability and security or port forwarding, Speedify offers Dedicated Speed Servers.
A Dedicated Speed Server allows all of your clients, mobile and desktop, to use a private server that only members of your team can access. This dedicated hardware can offer higher reliability and a more predictable throughput.
The standard configuration for a Dedicated Speed Server is a minimum of 1 Gbps throughput capable. We are responsible for software maintenance and updates to the server.
We can host Dedicated Servers at almost any of the locations where we host today.
It is also possible for us to host a server in your facility, assuming that you have the ability to provide reliable hardware, bandwidth, access, and network configuration. This can be done to allow your team members to have fast, secure VPN access to resources behind your firewall.
It must be noted that self-hosting is not a cost-savings move for you. The increased support time on both your and our sides are guaranteed to be higher than the cost of hosting a server at a major hosting provider. Additionally, we are still responsible for software maintenance and must have access to update the software at any time. One of the secrets to how we keep our client applications from getting bloated is that they only support the very latest and greatest version of the Speedify protocol. All backward compatibility is the responsibility of the server; therefore, in the days before every release of the Speedify client, every server in the world must be updated with a new "container" with support for the latest protocol.
To add servers and monitor the Dedicated Servers in your team, log into the Teams console and select the Servers tab at the top. You will see a link to Add a Dedicated Server in the Status area of the Server page.
