|IBM X-Architecture technology
HostTone.com is using 100% IBM eServer xSeries because they are the most advanced servers
available. They offer businesses and individuals unmatched stability and scalability.
- ECC (Error Checking and Correcting)
Memory, is a feature that continuously monitors the
server's memory, and corrects errors when they happen. It prevents
crashes and data loss caused by corrupted memory.
- Predictive Failure Analysis (PFA)
PFA is performed by a dedicated, on-board, processor which
monitors the server's hardware components and alerts us to imminent
failure before it happens.
- Lightpath Diagnostics
Lightpath Diagnostics is a LED visual alert device which informs technicians
which server component (memory module, hard drive, fan, etc.) has
failed. This reduces the time needed to identify and replace the faulty component.
- RAID (Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks)
RAID speeds up data accesses by reading data over multiple
drives. It also improves reliability by caching redundant copies on
multiple physical drives, so that if one drive fails, the data stored on
it can be accessed via the redundant copies on other drives.
- Hot swap disk drives
It allow us to replace failing hard drives in a RAID array
without taking the server off-line!
- The Advanced RAID Array
designed for intensely active applications, features
exceptionally fast 15000RPM disk drives and 64MB of battery-backed cache
for lightning speed writes. It also has two Ultra160 channels for even
more speed and reliability.
What is IBM X-Architecture technology?
X-Architecture TM technology is an evolving blueprint for
IBM eServer xSeries servers that is drawn from the vast enterprise server heritage of IBM. xSeries engineers take the technologies that have already revolutionized larger IBM systems and bring them to the Intel�-based platform. The results: industry-standard servers designed to provide enterprise-inspired power, scalability, control and service at very attractive prices.
