The All-New ServInt Flex Private Server Line

by Devon Rutherford  • 

Earlier today ServInt announced its latest line of dedicated server products. Although we upgraded some core components in our Solo Series dedicated servers over the last two years, those changes weren’t profound enough to justify too much fanfare. Instead, we wanted to wait for a major revision to update the server line entirely–and it’s finally here! So, without further ado, I introduce our Flex Private server packages.

Our Flex line of servers represents the next generation of server technology. Our new servers include larger CPUs with more cores, more RAM, and substantially more storage space. (Andrea True would be proud: “More, More, More.”) Even with these advanced hardware options, however, we’ve also been able to reduce the cost to levels that are surprising for the quality of the enterprise-grade hardware we’ll be providing.

Just as important as performance and pricing, ServInt’s Flex Private servers are designed with scalability in mind–making this line of products exceedingly versatile. We’ve cut back on the total number of server models we offer (from 10 to 3), but given each server type far more range. Upgrading RAM or disk space within a particular server product now requires zero downtime. Moreover, upgrading between server tiers (or from Near-Line SAS to SAS drives) typically involves just a couple of minutes of downtime and can be scheduled at your convenience.

So, you’re probably wondering what sort of specifications are offered on our new Flex Private products. I’m pleased to say that these servers are available with either a single or dual Hexa Core (Intel 5600 Series) CPUs, up to 32 GB of RAM, and as much at 3 TB of drive space. Of course, these are just the broad strokes, for a more detailed view of the packages, please feel free to visit our Flex Private page.

As I’m sure you’ll notice, this is a pretty big departure from the products we were offering yesterday. As we develop our cloud technologies further, the Flex Private server will offer more features and more granularity in upgrade options. So, whether you have an immediate need for a private cloud server or a traditional managed dedicated server, our new Flex series of has the power and options you want.

  2. I have to admit to being totally puzzled and think there is a significant communication gap here. I have read all the three articles about Flex and it looks like just a brand name change, at least for the VPS servers. There is nothing on the VPS range page that's different from the older page, except for the change in the package name. The upgrades to RAM, disk space, upgrading between server tiers, servers with new specs, Nearline SAS to SAS all seem to be only for the dedicated server range, not in the VPS range. I would love to know what's so revolutionary about this Flex cloud for those of us with the VPSes, Essential onwards.
  3. Currently on http://www.servint.net/ You are offering: -flex vps -flex dedicated -self managed Based on this comment: "So, whether you have an immediate need for a private cloud server or a traditional managed dedicated server, our new Flex series of has the power and options you want." It appears my essential vps is now floating around somewhere... because the only way I can interpret that is: flex vps=private cloud server & flex dedicated=managed dedicated. Regardless, I've grown quite weary over servints progressively less transparent communications over these types of things. It has been a while since I have recommended servint because of that, and I am asked 'which host is good' quite frequently. While I understand you want to be careful what you say, explaining in exact, and unambiguous, terms, what your packages really are could be beneficial to your sales. I've gone back and forth on the private customer forums many times... and servint seems quite insistent to become less transparent. Please don't reply to this, I wont see it.
  4. WoW... great news, very soon I will get huge traffic for my sites and a dedicated server would be essential. Now I can upgrade at the same cost of before with higher performance.
  5. Bill, we do still have some Solo servers available, so if you're interested in adding Solo inventory we can probably oblige. Just contact sales. We do offer volume discounts if cost is a consideration.
  6. Thanks for the followup. It does not look like you still offer the Solo servers, though. Is that right? Will the price of the Solos be going down? :)
  7. Great question, Bill, thanks. Although we would have liked to have had the option of offering one of ServInt's patented free upgrades--like we do with our VPS products occasionally--the two server lines are really fundamentally different in a number of ways, so it's a bit of an 'apples and oranges' thing. If you're thinking of crossing the platform rubicon, our sales team can walk you through all the pertinent issues -- so feel free to reach out.
  8. Thanks for the kind words, Jeremy. Our sales team is available almost any time to help you with resource usage assessments when you decide it's time to take a closer look at the Flex line.
  9. Wow! Looks great. I recently signed up (for Signature VPS) with you guys and I have to say I'm quite satisfied so far. Glad to see you offering such high-end hardware for such reasonable prices as I will probably have to upgrade in not too long. Keep up the good work!
