Togglebox in its own words

Togglebox is the cloud hosting division of TekTonic, which has been providing virtual servers since 2003.  All cloud services are hosted on distributed NVMe storage with 3 copies of all data.  High Availability is built-in -- If the underlying hardware fails your server is automatically started on a spare node. Resources are purchased individually allowing you to fine tune what you pay.

Currently we have datacenters in Dallas, Texas and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Togglebox was founded in 2003.
It is headquartered in the USA.
It offers VPS hosting products.

It has datacenters in:
  • United States
