  • Up to 4 HDDs per server: 1TB, 2TB SATA III 7.2K, Hot-swappable
  • Up to 4 SSDs per server: 120GB, 240GB, 512GB
  • Port and bandwidth: 1Gbps 10TB in/10TB out, 1Gbps 20TB in/20TB out

All our servers also include the following components:

  • FREE 5 IPs in vLAN
  • UNMETERED 100Mbps port
  • Proactive hardware monitoring Learn more here
  • Full remote access through dedicated IPMI connected to a separate network:
    1. Remote access via BMC web interface Learn more here
    2. Remote access via IPMItool Learn more here

Convenient Installation. We provide all our clients with Pre-eXecution Environment (PXE) boot to make system installation a breeze. As long as you are connected to the network, you can circumvent normal booting, troubleshoot, use liveOS, and even re-image your machine.

High-availability Clusters. For content-heavy, high-traffic websites and enterprise-class applications, we offer server clustering that will allow your servers to work together, ensuring high performance and high availability.

Private LAN-ready. Each of our servers has two (2) network adapters; combined with the fact that we make sure to reserve an additional switch in our racks, you can easily interconnect servers to create a private LAN.

Affordable Technical Support Packages. Our reliable team of expert system administrators can help you through your set-up and troubleshooting questions through our affordable technical support service packages.

Fully In-house. At Alnitech, we believe in keeping critical business processes in-house. We fully manage our own hardware and technical support departments. Third parties are kept out of our decision-making process to ensure we continuously deliver high standards of service.

Immedion

All Immedion services include:

  • SLA-backed Guaranteed Uptime
  • Infrastructure Redundancy
  • Maximized Uptime
  • SSAE 16, SOC 1, Type II compliance
  • Enterprise-class Security Solutions
  • 24x7x365 Customer Support

Connectivity

  • 240 Gigabits, current network capacity of 1 Terabit can be activated at a moment’s notice.
  • Four (4) diverse fiber & copper entrances
  • Multi 10G connectivity with transit from BTN/PCCW, Global Crossing, Savvis, Time Warner, Qwest, Telia, Level 3, AT&T, Cogent, WBS, WVFiber, Sprint, Charter, Nuvox, XO, Verizon, Abovenet & Internap
  • Redundant paths to customer equipment/racks
  • Cisco 6500 series switches for distribution, Cisco 7600 series routers manage border gateway protocol (BGP) and network aggregation
  • Internap Flow Control Platform (FCP) for optimized bandwidth routing and traffic control
  • Network monitoring 24x7x365 with onsite Network Operations Center (NOC)
  • Top Layer IDS (Intrusion Detection System) monitors the entire network to protect customer and datacenter infrastructure

Electricals

Progress Energy provides power for AVL01 through a dual feed power supply system from redundant substations feeding the technology park.

  • Voltage Availability: 208/120V
  • Power Density [W/sf]: 250
  • Redundant Bus Availability: Yes
  • Generator Quantity: 2
  • Generator Capacity: 1MW
  • UPS Runtime at Full Load: 18 minutes
  • Fuel Capacity: 48 hours

Fire Suppression

Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus (VESDA) provides the earliest possible warning of potential fire events by detecting smoke particles at the incipient stage of fire. This allows onsite technicians to respond to the incident and extinguish the fire before it can spread and cause damage.
A state-of-the-art multi-stage sprinkler system is activated by smoke detectors that trigger the building alarm. Sprinkler heads release water to the isolated area only when a specific localized temperature threshold is met.

Security

Armed guards secure the building 24x7x365. Additionally, over 30 cameras monitor all the entrances and every inch of the datacenter floor. Video data is digitally stored offsite for at least 90 days.
