For reliable software, you must have reliable hardware. Plenty of hardware options are floating around out there that are using nothing but race to the bottom hardware. Hardware that is going to eat your data. Bit flips during writes, non-ECC ram, I/O controllers that are unbelievably broken, creating servers that are a sausage grinder of taint and brokenness you do not want to rely on to safely write and store your data.
So we partner with iXsystems to offer you a complete line of the absolute best hardware options available today from people that have many years of in-depth relationships with x86 class hardware and vendors. No one knows x86 hardware like iXsystems. Our name is tied to iXsystems. As is our reputation. Something we take very seriously.
