We are pleased to announce a new server line we are calling the Ivy Bridge E3 Mini-Monster. Just like our dual processor E5 Monster, Beast and Giant server lines, the E3 Mini-Monster offers a universally popular hardware configuration that appeals to many users. Because Hivelocity pre-configures these servers and offers only a few hardware variations we are able to order them in masses from SuperMicro and Dell and pass along a much lower price to our customers.
The E3 Mini-Monster configuration includes an E3-1230-V2 3.3GHz Ivy Bridge Xeon processor, 16GB RAM, a 480GB Intel Solid State Drive for the primary Hdd and a 1TB Sata III drive for a secondary Hdd. Additionally we are packaging this configuration with 10TB of bandwidth on a 100Mbps port. Upgrade options include an E3-1270-V2 3.5GHz Ivy Bridge Xeon processor, up to 32GB RAM, 2TB or 3TB Sata drives and 1Gbps ports.
With the inclusion of a large 480GB Intel 520 SSD, so much ram and such a great processor, the Mini-Monster is a super fast server. Since this configuration also includes a very large 1TB Sata Hdd, with the option of upgrading to 2TB or 3TB, as a secondary drive it should allow for plenty of backup and storage space.
The E3 Ivy Bridge Mini-Monster starts at $175 per month. If you were to build this server yourself on our site it would cost you $316 per month. Because we are packaging these systems the way we are customers will save over $140 per month equating to a roughly 45% discount!
