A 30:30 server bridges the gap between a dedicated hardware server and shared hosting on a community server. The servers are delivered as a base server with a number of optional add-ons, that allow for customisation.
The security advantages of these dedicated servers make hosting websites, with specialist software requirements and PCI compliance needs, a breeze. The flexibility offered by full root access, and the option to install or develop your own software, also makes the 30:30 server the ideal solution for many IT headaches.
Based upon industry-leading ‘VMware ESX Enterprise’ software and enterprise grade Dell hardware, Infinium’s 30:30 servers are built for reliability and resilience, giving you peace of mind that your application will be available day and night.
Linux/FreeBSD Server Management Service
The Linux/FreeBSD Management service has been designed to enable customers to leverage the flexibility and power of Open Source software on Linux or FreeBSD based servers.
Open source operating systems and software have been around forever (in computing terms) and have been responsible for running most of the modern Internet. As companies want to bring Internet-type applications into their premises or Private Clouds, the need for Open Source expertise has risen.
Often, the overhead of employing a competent systems administrator can make Open Source software, which on the face of it looks like a very attractive alternative, a financial barrier. Our service covers the basics of Linux and FreeBSD systems administration, all delivered over secure remote access for a simple, competitive fixed monthly fee. The service covers:
- Security Update Management
- Log Management
- Package installations/management
- Backup management/reporting
- Core system administration task
Infinium can provide this service to servers hosted within our data centres and we support many Linux distributions. If yours is not in the list though, please just let us know.
- Ubuntu • CentOS
- RedHat • FreeBSD
Our ITIL compliant service desk gives complete change management and auditing, giving customers the reassurance of best practice and accountability. Changes and fixes made via the ITIL compliant service desk are visible on the web-based ticket system and can be reviewed at any time by the case holder and checked against our SLA (Service Level Agreement).
As well as core system administration tasks, we are able to support the software on some single purpose servers. This includes:
- Bind • Cacti
- Apache • MySQL
- Sendmail • FreeRadius
- Nagios • LAMP
- Wiki • RT
With complete application support, customers can deploy Private Cloud solutions for monitoring, DNS, web services and more with the same platform as large enterprises and service providers at a fraction of the cost.
The service is available to individual IT managers and managed service providers to supplement their existing Microsoft Windows desktop and server support. As part of a 30:30 server agreement, the Linux/FreeBSD Management service means that customers have a single point of contact for both hosting and management.
Infinium’s Server Colocation service is delivered from multiple leading UK data centres, with onward connectivity to LINX, LONAP and other Tier 1 network providers. Whichever data centre your server is collocated at, you can rest assured it provides resilient power and cooling infrastructure supported by redundant mechanical and electrical systems. All Infinium partner data centres have 24/7 security and strict access control systems, ensuring your assets are secure and protected.
Why choose Server Colocation?
- Cost – server colocation offers pricing that is normally fixed for the term of your contract, excluding any anticipated rises such as electricity price increases.
- Resilience – by hosting your hardware at one of our partner Infinium data centres, you can be sure you never need to worry about power, cooling or other mechanical and electrical systems. Resilience is a standard feature of our data centres, providing backups and uninterrupted power to protect against outages.
- Economies of scale – colocation allows our customers to benefit from economies of scale that would not be available to them at their own premises. Hosting your hardware at an Infinium data centre gives access to increased bandwidth at a lower cost.
- Performance – compared to any on-premise solution, internet latency at our data centres is significantly lower and the reliability of the network is far greater.
- Expert monitoring – 24/7 remote hands services are provided from our data centres, with staff always available should problems arise.
- Security – your assets are governed by more stringent levels of security, including CCTV, locked racks, security guards and access control systems.
Infinium has a wealth of Server Colocation experience, using best practice from several different data centre providers. A colocated server managed by Infinium ensures you have a truly reliable, efficient, cost-effective service to deliver your business needs.
