Scientific Linux Servers

Scientific Linux Dedicated Servers

Scientific Linux Dedicated Servers
Have your own ultra-stable Scientific Linux dedicated server. You are root, do whatever you want with it. No minimum term, no setup fee.

Scientific Linux is a free alternative to RedHat Enterprise Linux, perfect for the person that wants the stability but does not require the support options and cost that the RedHat branded product offers. Scientific Linux is compiled from the same source code as RedHat Enterprise Linux, so it is 100% binary compatible with RedHat Enterprise Linux and has a history of being more up to date than CentOS.

What other M5Hosting customers do with Scientific Linux:

  • Apache/MySQL/PHP (LAMP) Web Server
  • Facebook application hosting
  • Mail server or backup mail server
  • Mail filtering system
  • CVS, Subversion (SVN), or Git host
  • DNS server (primary or secondary)
  • Shell server
  • Game server
  • Development platform

Our standard Scientific Linux dedicated server platform is a high-performance, 1U or 2U high Supermicro chassis with your choice of processors such as Intel Dual-core and single or dual Intel Xeon. We have dedicated servers available from 4GB of RAM to 512GB of RAM. All of our dedicated servers have switched 1Gbps (1Gbit) Ethernet connections. Customized configurations are available with larger amounts of RAM or 10Gbits network. We can also colocate your provided hardware. Other dedicated server hardware configurations are available.

All our Dedicated Servers are monitored for availability (pinged every 5 minutes). In the event that your server goes down, you will be paged and/or e-mailed at the same time as our NOC. 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 & Bandwidth Monitoring

Each and every switch port on our network is monitored for bandwidth, errors, discards and other anomalies. You have 24×7 web-based access to graphs that detail your bandwidth utilization by speed, and data transfer over time. You can also monitor your server health (CPU, disk use, memory, disk I/O, system load average). As an additional service, we can set alerts for you if thresholds are exceeded.

What sets us apart from all the others…

Actual Photo of M5 Hosting Dedicated Server Data CenterOur network’s lightning-quick, punchy response to almost anywhere is ensured by InterNAP’s Flow Control Platform technology. The InterNAP Flow Control Platform (InterNAP FCP) monitors all of our 10-gigabit carrier connections for latency, jitter, packet loss, BGP blackouts and more, for each destination network. If there is a better path available than the current path, then a route change is made and the better path is used to reach 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 and others.

This solution increases performance by greater than 50% over regular BGP solutions. 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 an extremely competitive additional cost.

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