About Fraction Servers

Fraction Servers was setup in 2020 as a low cost dedicated server brand of UK Dedicated Servers Limited with a view to providing unmanaged dedicated servers at low prices.

Our parent company UK Servers has been providing managed dedicated server solutions since 2004 and now hosts over 4,000 servers across three datacentre sites.

Among the principles for Fraction Servers we wanted to ensure that:

• Support to our customers is provided by onsite 24/7/365 technicians from our own datacentres meaning no middlemen or 3rd parties involved in service provision.
• All members of staff are from a technical background ensuring you can always speak to someone able to understand your requirements
• We run and operate as much as our own infrastructure as possible giving full control over the services we offer to customers

Fraction Servers owns and operates its own datacentre in Coventry, UK and also offers dedicated servers within Telehouse in the London Docklands. 

Our Coventry datacentre boasts the following specification:
♦ 2N+1 - UPS Systems (A+B Power to Each Rack)
♦ 24/7/365 Onsite Security Staff with Single Point of Entry
♦ n+2 Backup diesel generator Power
♦ VESDA Smoke Detection

Whilst Telehouse North 2 offers the following:
♦ 132kv Grid Substation
♦ Dual Redundant and Diverse Incoming Power Feeds
♦ Industry Leading PuE of 1.16 in an N+2 cooling configuration
♦ Telehouse campus is the primary home of the London Internet Exchange (LINX) giving servers at this site ultra low latency often required for FX, share trading platforms and domain name services.

Fraction Servers operates its own high speed MPLS enabled network spanning multiple UK datacentres, designed for redundancy, speed and security. All of our UK sites have multiple failover routes to the internet with all intersite connections at a minimum of 100Gb/s.

We utilise the latest Juniper MX routers at the edge of our network directly connected to Juniper EX series virtual chassis switches at the core with the entire network being dual IPv4/IPv6 stacked..

We have multiple 10Gb/s uplinks to our tier one transit providers which include: CenturyLink, GTT and NTT. Additionally we peer at LONAP (London Access Point) and LINX (London Internet Exchange) with service providers including BT, TalkTalk, BT, Virgin Media, Claranet, Janet and more.

We provide independent motorsport news and feature coverage including F1, Indycar and Formula E. Having hosted with many of the “big names” in the past we have found much of their high price tags do not justify the “expert support” they claim to provide. We have found the Fraction Servers team easy to work with and extremely helpful and all at a price that is very competitive.

homesearch.co.uk is a pioneering technology company in London that provides unrivalled data intelligence and analytics to property professionals. Homesearch delivers unique reporting, efficiency and transparency to estate agents UK-wide. We have been using FractionServers for a little whie now over which time our needs have scaled dramatically, FractionServers are able to offer 10Gb/s networking and same day upgrades on hardware, something we have found most other providers unable to offer.

Alan Burgess (motasoft.co.uk) 

Having used numerous dedicated server providers in the past the response times that we see at Fraction Servers to support queries that we put to them is markedly superior. Their onsite datacentre team are happy to carry out upgrades for us out of hours and their integrated control panel allows us full management of billing, services and support.
