ion's miniSERVER, based on the Intel NUC8 platform, features a quad-core 8th generation, Intel® Core processor with 16GB or 32GB RAM, mirrored SSDs and dual 1Gb Ethernet NICs. Does your application belong on a tiny, low cost, mini server that is very low power?

ION NUC8 miniSERVER In 1998, ION became the first company in the world to qualify as an Intel Authorized Solution Provider, the program now known as Intel Technology Provider, Platinum Member.

Designing a private cloud infrastructure with Red Hat CloudForms, OpenStack 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. miniSERVERs.

Need a small, quiet server you can put anywhere at home? Maybe a miniSERVER. What makes it a server? The biggest threat to your data at home is that most PCs have a single disk. Maybe 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 other 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.
