Dedicated Servers / Managed Java Servers

With a range of servers starting from only $179/month, we are sure you will find something to suit your budget and your power requirements.

We use Dell server hardware with Intel CPUs for reliability, performance and power, ideal for mission critical applications. SAS drives (much faster than SATA), are included on all plans. Most servers also come with hardware RAID drive mirroring.

Our racks are located the Primus Corporate Data Centre, King St, Melbourne, Australia, for maximum network speed and reliability. See the Data Centre Page for more information.

Please contact us with your specific requirements if you cannot find a suitable server below, or check the Optional Extras section at the bottom of this page.
