Dedicated Servers

We had issues with one of the sites on our server getting a denial of service attack and one with out of control processes - both happening at the same time! M5 was available to us 24/7, and helped us get our server under control.

We’ve been in the dedicated server business for more than a decade.

So you could say we know our stuff. But that’s not all. The M5 experience is about choice and it’s about expert support that is truly there for you.

We can complement your cloud services with dedicated hardware systems when your needs require it. Whatever it is that you have going on, our team of engineers doesn’t blink an eye at customization.

Some possible requirements may include:

  • Advanced dedicated servers
  • Advanced custom configurations
  • High-speed local storage arrays
  • Encrypted physical disks
  • Eventual certified destruction required
  • Non-variable I/O performance
  • Software that requires a hardware key or “dongle”
  • External hardware such as CDMA antennae, POTS lines or modem
  • Legacy OS support

 

 

Why M5 Dedicated Servers

Our standard 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.

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!
