VMware Private Cloud
Rochen owns and manages our own infrastructure. From the servers and network switches, to the physical racks that house the technology, we have 100% control over the environment. Instead of building our platform on a mass-market public cloud provider, we’ve built a private cloud using modern virtualized infrastructure with VMware. By designing and independently managing both the hardware and software stack we deliver a high quality service that is more scalable, redundant, secure, and feature packed.
Highly Scalable Architecture
Rochen has seen clients grow from small businesses and startup projects into large scale operations. With our range of scalable solutions, seamless upgrade processes, and expert team of engineers always on hand, we have been able to support their growth every step of the way.
We make upgrading between our Solo, Growth, Pro and Reseller web hosting plans or to our Dedicated VMs platform a breeze. Easily upgrade at any time and with our expert team managing the process there will be no disruption to your sites.
Our fully managed and highly customizable Dedicated VMs allow sites or applications to serve the highest volumes of traffic. Start out with a smaller Dedicated VM and elastically scale or deploy a cluster of Dedicated VMs with local or global load balancing to handle any load requirements.
Our entire instructure from the underlying design in the data centers, to the server hardware and software stack, works hand-in-hand to provide a redundant architecture ensuring maximum possible uptime to our customers.
Taking advantage of VMware vSphere, and the virtualized nature of our platform, clients can easily be transferred within minutes between physical ESXi host servers in the event of physical hardware failure or load requirements. For added peace of mind, our Dedicated VMs come with a comprehensive 100% uptime Service Level Agreement (SLA) guarantee.
Security First Approach
Rochen has a security first mindset to ensure that your sites or applications are kept as secure as possible. We provide auto daily backups as well auto updates for popular CMS like WordPress.
Managed Server and Physical Security
Rochen's infrastructure is co-located in highly secure data center facilities that meet industry-standard security best practices including checkpoints, gates, fences, 24/7 on-site personnel, badge/photo ID access, biometric access screening, secure cages, and full-building video capture. Rochen manages all servers ourselves ensuring that the OS and all services like the web servers and database servers are always up to date and secure. Our team proactively monitors all servers 24/7 and responds quickly to any issues.
Imunify360 Malware Protection
By offering the Imunify360 premium malware protection service, Rochen scans every file upload and changes as well as all traffic in real time to ensure any attempts to exploit sites or applications with malware are blocked. Furthermore, Imunify360 receives regular updates to ensure robust protection against even zero-day malware attacks. In the unlikely event of malware infection Rochen provides a free and automatic cleanup service with quarantine fallback. Imunify360 is included with our Solo, Growth, Pro and Reseller web hosting plans and as an affordable add-on for Dedicated VMs.
Rochen Shield Web Application Firewall (WAF)
Rochen Shield, our intelligent Web Application Firewall (WAF) with custom rulesets, acts as the first line of defense for sites or applications hosted by Rochen. Rochen Shield filters all web requests to protect against Cross Site Script (CSS) and SQL Injection (SQLi) attacks. The latest OWASP rulesets are in place as well as custom application specific rules to provide protection for WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and Magento sites.

Like Rochen, many of our clients have become increasingly concerned with environmental issues in recent years. It is our goal to do what we can to help without compromising the quality of service that we have become renowned for throughout the web hosting industry.
Rochen understands that operating highly redundant data centers can have an impact on the environment. That's why we have partnered with Green Mountain Energy, the leading provider of cleaner energy and carbon offsetting solutions, to purchase carbon credits to offset the emissions of our hosting operations.
On behalf of Rochen, Green Mountain invests in renewable energy sources such as wind power, as well as biomass facilities – many of which have been set up as a result of their initiatives. Rochen’s funding will also provide support for reforestation projects through Green Mountain’s relationship with the Pacific Forest Trust. Our emissions are reviewed annually, and carbon credits adjusted accordingly.
