Firewall security with advanced protection

You can easily secure your infrastructure using stateful firewalls at no extra cost. Define inbound and outbound rules to deny unnecessary traffic. Once configured, you can assign as many cloud servers as you need.

Load balancer to distribute traffic

Load balancers make it stress-free to scale requests by automatically distributing traffic through your infrastructure. It handles use cases such as TLS termination or creates an internet-facing entry point to route traffic to the Hetzner cloud network.

Optimized performance

Combine AMD EPYC 2nd Gen and Intel® Xeon® Gold processors with high-speed NVMe SSDs to benefit from high-performance hardware. You can select between local storage and cloud storage (NVMe SSD RAID or Ceph). You can also take advantage of redundant 10 Gigabit network links.

Network communication

Network communication feature allows servers to communicate over private networks and establish complex network topologies. Ideal in the sense of running Kubernetes clusters or database servers that can not be made publicly reachable.

Snapshot functionality

You can manually back up the server using the snapshot function. You can use a snapshot to restore a server from a saved image, use a saved image to create a new cloud server, or transfer images to another project.
