This pricing will increase shortly, as we will end this promotional pricing shortly.

Servers can be customized to fit two more RAM, while still maintaining this competitive price. Delivery time can be up to one week, to configure, receive, rack up and setup the hardware.

1gbps connections are also available, and extra traffic can be purchased at excellent rates.

There is a thin layer of virtualization on every server powered by Citrix Xenserver, which allows us to manage storage and to migrate you quickly to another machine if there is some hardware disaster.

Each server is connected via 2x 1gbps iSCSI connections to the SAN which is running SA-SCSI drives in a RAID-5 setup. We are using this method, because we understand clients need RAID, and they are often bothered by the high price of setting up something more advanced than RAID-1. This setup will be faster than regular SATA-II drives and much more redundant.
Managed services are available with 24/7 service monitoring and response including initial server security setup as well as clustering and more advanced setups, just contact us for pricing.
