Dedicated Servers & Colocation

Actual Photo of M5 Hosting Dedicated Server Data Center #1

       Our standard dedicated server platform is a high-performance, 1U high Supermicro chassis with your choice of processors ranging from Intel Dual Core, Quad Core Xeons and Dual CPU Xeon systems with up to 36 cores. We have dedicated servers available with up to 256GB RAM (or more by special order). All our dedicated servers have switched Gigabit Ethernet connections (10GigE available at extra cost). Customized configurations are available. We can also colocate your provided hardware. Other dedicated server hardware configurations are available.

       All our Dedicated Servers are monitored for availability (pinged). You will be paged and/or e-mailed in the event your server goes down for longer than a typical reboot. This web-based system can also give you uptime statistics and you can review historical monitoring data for your servers. We can also monitor network-based services such as HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, SMTP, POP3, DNS, and others on your server for availability.

Web-based Availability, Performance, and Bandwidth Monitoring

       Each and every switch port on our network is monitored for bandwidth, errors, discards and other anomalies. You have 24x7 web-based access to graphs that detail your bandwidth utilization by speed, and data transfer over time. As an additional service, we can also monitor your server health (CPU, disk use, memory, disk I/O, system load average) and alert if thresholds are exceeded.

       Our facilities are staffed 24x7 and serviced with redundant air, power and network systems. We share the facilities with some of America's top financial institutions, government and defense contractors, biotech and research organizations, hosting companies and network security companies.

What sets us apart from all others...

Actual Photo of M5 Hosting Dedicated Server Data Center        Our network's lightning-quick, punchy network response to almost anywhere is ensured by InterNAP's Flow Control Platform technology deployed on our network. The InterNAP Flow Control Platform (InterNAP FCP) monitors all of our multi-gigabit carrier connections for latency, jitter, packet loss and handshake round-trip time, BGP blackouts and more, for each destination network, then routes your traffic though the fastest and most reliable backbone to that specific destination network. The selected route used for each communication will be the fastest of any of our direct connectivity to Level 3 Communications, XO Communications, Cogent, American Internet Services. This solution increases performance by greater than 50% over regular BGP solutions because standard BGP does not have any metric for performance and can not make route changes based on performance information like our network can. There just isn't a better network in San Diego.

       Additional services such as premium whole disk backups, managed or un-managed firewall services and server load-balancing are available for extremely competitive additional cost.

       We are proud of our solid performance and availability. See our actual network availability statistics here.
