Speed Like No One Else

Our servers are ready for SSH in less than 30 seconds, average. Thanks to smart architecture based on SSD disks, accelerated networks and fast next-gen processors.

Use the devops tools you love

Create servers automatically with OpenStack-compatible API requests via command line tools and programming libraries in many languages.

Full Root and Full Control

Virtually no limits in the operating system choice or software versions. DreamHost’s cloud servers can be based on Linux, BSD or even MS Windows. Major Linux distributions are already pre-loaded, or bring your own.

A Cloud That Grows With You

If your business needs grow enough for you to justify running your own private cloud, we can help you out. All the code is open source and we publicly disclose our architecture. We will help you migrate your workloads to your own private cloud when the time comes.
