Technologies Used

At M5 Hosting, we believe in using the best tools for the job, hiring experienced people, and partnering with industry experts. We’ve handpicked the following tools to make our dedicated and cloud server hosting the best it can be.


The Apache Foundation is best known for making and maintaining some of the most relied-upon Open Source Software, including Apache HTTP Server (the most used web server software on the Internet), Hadoop, JMeter, Lucene, Solr, SpamAssasin, Subversion, and Tomcat. The Apache CloudStack was a no-brainer and we are proud to be on board with the Apache team.


Brocade makes high-performance FibreChannel, 10GigE, 40GigE and 100GigE fabric switches. We love that we (and you!) can always rely on Brocade quality.


We have complete trust in our Cisco Systems Layer-3 core and edge network devices. Who can argue with a company leading the IT pack for over three decades?


Citrix is a major contributor to Apache CloudStack, and is the publisher of the commercially supported version of the XenServer hypervisor. It’s good to have them on our side.


We use Intel Xeon CPUs, network interfaces and Solid State Disks (SSD). Intel is second to none in low failure rate and performing as specified. We know we can count on them just as you count on us.


NexentaStor is a commercially-supported and maintained ZFS-based storage system. We use Nexenta-certified hardware in highly-available clusters and we’ve never looked back.


For over 20 years, Supermicro has been delivering high-performance, super efficient server technology, including application-optimized server, workstation, blade, storage and GPU systems.
