Choice of Operating System (Windows, RHEL, CentOS, SUSE, Ubuntu, Open-E JovianDSS, etc.)
ion NUC8 miniSERVERs are assembled and tested in the United States of America by
ion Computer Systems®.
With over 25 years of server experience, the ion Advantage delivers better miniSERVERs, too!
Does your application belong on a tiny, low cost, mini server that is very low power?
For physical servers where functionality is already redundant (Web, AD/DC, DHCP, DNS, etc.), small, cool and quiet miniSERVERs
using less than 65 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
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.
Need a small, quiet server you can put anywhere at home? Maybe a miniSERVER? What makes it a server? 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 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.
