About Faction®

Join the Cloud Revolution

Faction (formerly Peak), started in 2006 as an inspired, Cloud IAAS collective, populated by some of the most award-winning IT engineers and thought leaders in the cloud computing industry. Determined to revolutionize a smarter, uncompromised way for IT pros to reliably work in the cloud, Faction is gaining rapid momentum and attracting impressive numbers of progressive, forward-thinking enterprise customers and channel partners  – all undeterred in their shared pursuit of extreme performance, deep control and broad customization.



Cloud the way you want it

Extreme Performance, Deep Control & Broad Customization

(It’s what you’d build yourself if you could)

While traditional cloud providers espouse a one size fits all methodology in order to provide scale, it comes at the expense of relinquishing the control IT teams insist on. Call it what it really is – compromise. And compromise just plain stinks.

You receive the highest degree of control and deepest access into your infrastructure offered by any cloud. Of course it means dedicated compute, storage and network resources to every customer.

Layer 2 Connectivity

Receive simplified ‘plug-in’ access to any Faction cloud location via Layer 2 for seamless interconnection of all your resources. This means that Faction customers bring their network ‘as-is’ without time consuming re-designs of everything! (vLANS, subnets, or router, firewall and VPN topologies.

We patented this offering. So, we are the ONLY cloud provider that offers dedicated private network pathways, via layer 2, into its cloud, riding on your existing carrier. 


It looks like flexibility to choose the type of cloud and risk profile that works best for you, offering an environment containing tens of thousands of virtual machines and multiple petabytes for public, private, hybrid cloud and disaster recovery solutions.

It looks like agnostic, no lock-in to any one vendor or technology.


Plus a 100% money-back SLA guarantee? You'd want that, right?
