Programming Interface (Application Programming Interface)
An API provides standardized information from a part of a program, which can be absorbed by any number of other program parts and used for further processing. This separation enables the program parts to be developed independently, as long as the API remains unchanged.
CPU block of a processor
A "core" can refer to completely different processor generations, particularly in service offerings and price quotations. ProfitBricks defines "core" as a real core of the latest processor generations from companies such as Intel and AMD, in other words, with the maximum productive efficiency.
Server housing or server homing
Accommodation and network connection of a customer server in the data center of an Internet Service Provider (ISP). This means that, in contrast to hosting, the operating system is not made available by the provider, but that the provider only ensures the framework for operating system supply.
Infrastructure as a Service
Use of all data center services, such as server and infrastructure, via the Internet. IaaS offerings are provided as cloud services and maintained professionally by IaaS providers. They offer a variety of possible applications, from a one-off application as required, to avoiding peak loads, idle capacities, expensive hardware acquisition, etc.
Platform as a Service
Use of a computer platform via the Internet, provided by a PaaS supplier. PaaS offerings provide a runtime environment for web applications that can be deployed quickly and with a low amount of administrative effort, without the need for purchasing the underlying hardware and software.
ProfitBricks is a globally operating company in the hosting industry that offers Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solutions based on cloud technology to professional users. ProfitBricks founder and industry veteran Achim Weiß assembled an international team of around 50 engineers from various specialist fields in 2010 in Berlin. Over the next two years, the IT experts together developed the next generation of hosting based on the latest cloud technologies – the virtual data center on a cost-effective rental basis.
The new Intel® processors at ProfitBricks owe their high performance chracteristics to the Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology. Each Intel® Core is assigned a so-called hyper-thread, which enables parallelized workloads by exploiting free processor cycles. Adding Intel® processors to the CPU architectures that are available at ProfitBricks means you can now choose between Intel® cores and AMD cores for each of your virtual instances.Download
