Raspberry Pi

Our Raspberry Pi hosting service gives you access to a dedicated, 64-bit quad core ARM processor with 1GB, 4GB or 8GB of RAM, backed by network storage. The server is supplied with the Raspbian operating system pre-installed.


  • Raspberry Pi 3 or 4 — quad-core 64-bit ARMv8 processor
  • 10GB - 250GB disk space
  • IPv6-only connectivity
  • Raspbian pre-installed
  • Instant remote power cycles
  • IPv4 to IPv6 HTTP/HTTPS proxy
  • IPv4 SSH access
  • Up and running in under 2 minutes
  • Per-second, on-demand billing available
  • Server management REST API

On-demand and pre-paid options

Servers can be paid for monthly, quarterly or annually in advance, with discounts for longer periods.

Servers can also be ordered with per-second on-demand billing. On-demand pricing is quoted as a monthly rate, but can be cancelled at any time and you will only be charged for the time that the server is provisioned.


Our servers netboot onto an NFS root file system. This approach has a number of benefits over using local flash storage on the Pi.

Network storage avoids the reliability and performance issues associated with flash storage, and gives us greater flexibility over the size of storage available.

Use of netboot also makes it impossible to “brick” the server: if you make the server unbootable, we can recover it by booting to a rescue image.

Please note that we do not take backups of the Raspberry Pi filesystems. If you require backups, please contact support for details of our backup services.


Servers come with IPv6 connectivity. We expose SSH over IPv4 via a gateway server, and the service includes access to our IPv4-to-v6 proxy, allowing you to host websites on an IPv6-only server.

Servers are currently being provisioned in the City Lifeline data centre in London. Servers are connected to a switch on our core network with direct access via our fibre ring to multiple 10Gbps uplinks, including the London Internet Exchange (LINX) and LONAP.

Our Pi servers are connected to a managed switch providing power-over-ethernet (PoE). This allows you to power cycle your server at any time using our control panel.
