Ubiquity adopts Intel's Multi-Flex server platform
Ubiquity Hosting Solutions, a provider of shared, reseller, VPS, dedicated, and collocation hosting services, has announced that it will be embracing Intel's new modular Multi-Flex server platform for all of its shared, reseller, and VPS hosting services.
The company believes that the Intel's modular approach to the Multi-Flex server chassis has allowed them to provide a platform with full redundancy at the hardware level.
It explains that this system uses redundant motherboard and CPU interfaces, isolated from the rest of the system, which interact with redundant, external NIC and PDU connections.
Further it states that the Hard disk storage is supplied by a RAID 5 virtual drive pool in the systems storage controller, also isolated from the systems motherboard and processing resources, such that in the event of a motherboard failure; a fail-over node can be started almost instantly.
In addition the company has stated that the issue plans to roll-out the Intel Modular Server throughout Q2 and Q3 of 2008 until services in all five cities which it operates in have been converted to the Multi-Flex system, and is currently placing all of its new customers in the system already live in their Chicago data center.
"We're all pretty excited about this," stated Corey Northcutt, Chief Communications Officer with Ubiquity Hosting Solutions, "It's clear that as technology has been advancing, the market has come to have higher and higher expectations of uptime and reliability. By going both modular and redundant at the hardware level, we now have a uniquely powerful tool in meeting that demand."
