ion's miniSERVER 9S, based on the Intel NUC9 miniPC, features an 8-core Intel® Xeon® E-2286M processor with up to 64GB ECC RAM, up to (3) M.2 SSDs and dual 1Gb Ethernet. A system that has an Intel® Xeon® processor, ECC RAM, mirrored storage and dual network interfaces IS a real server.

In 1998, ION became the first company in the world to qualify as an Intel Authorized Solution Provider, the program now known as Intel Partner Alliance.  ION is a Titanium Partner, the highest level in the program.

Does your application belong on a tiny, low cost, mini server that is very low power?
Maybe you call that an “edge server”?

For physical servers where functionality is already redundant (Web, AD/DC, DHCP, DNS, etc.), small, cool and quiet miniSERVERs using less than 500 Watts each may be just what your organization (or your home) needs. Use the button below to send yourself a quotation along with requests for operating system or peripherals and ion will promptly send an updated quotation. With redundant storage and onsite spares, you can recover from almost any hardware failure in just a few minutes. Learn more about the miniSERVER concept on the ion Server Blog.

Designing a private cloud infrastructure with Red Hat CloudForms, OpenStack, VMware, Hyper-V or another platform? It might make sense to build that on a pool of small, cool, quiet, low-power COTS (Commercial Off-the-Shelf) systems that are simple to maintain and easy to scale out. miniSERVERs?

Need a small, quiet server you can put anywhere at home? Maybe a miniSERVER? What makes it a server? ECC Memory, redundant NIX and redundant storage! The biggest threat to your data at home is that most PCs have a single disk. That is probably a big disk, but still just one disk. Realistically, the question is not if that drive will fail, but when it will fail. When it goes, all of your data will be lost and probably lost forever. How many photos and scans and important documents are only stored on a single disk in your home? ion's miniSERVER 9s not only uses SSDs for higher reliability than disks, but mirrors them so that failure of just one does not send your data to the big bit bucket.
