  • Do you provide VM Images?

    Yes. Claranet provides a library of fully configured Microsoft and Linux operating systems and firewall appliances.

  • Do you provide server licencing as standard with the service?

    Windows server licencing is included on all pre-configured Microsoft images. For RedHat, the standard service is that we have the image included in the library to use with licences you supply, but licences can be supplied by Claranet if needed.

  • Where is my data located?

    Claranet has Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platforms in the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Netherlands. The principle of “always in-country” has been followed, but in circumstances where the customer wishes to take Cloud Compute or Cloud Storage resources in different Data Centres, network traffic and data may be shared.

  • Do you have utility billing capabilities?

    Yes. The minimum contract length is one month. Claranet measures utilisation through a built-in mechanism which captures the current ‘state’ of resources within an enterprise every hour.
