Amsterdam, The Netherlands – 3W Infra, a fast growing Infrastructure-as-a-Service hosting provider from Amsterdam with global operations and more than 4,600 dedicated servers under management, today announces the launch of its new mid-end and high-End dedicated server plans. These hosting packages are powered by Dell’s latest, 14th generation PowerEdge server technology. 3W Infra expects to enhance its innovative power later on this year by adding AMD-powered (next to Intel-powered) Dell equipment.

3W Infra’s new high-end and mid range dedicated server packages are powered by Dell PowerEdge R440 and Dell PowerEdge R540 respectively. These server hardware types will replace the previous 3W Infra server packages based on R430 and R530. As a provider of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions on a global scale, 3W Infra has thoroughly tested the 14th generation Dell hardware and expects these new dedicated server plans to cater to the efficiency and performance needs, even the most demanding ones of a variety of its existing and new customers worldwide.

3W Infra Test Bench Data Center Amsterdam

“3W Infra engineers have run multiple test with both of these Intel-powered Dell server types on the test bench in our flagship data center in Amsterdam and they found remarkable improvements when compared to the previous generation of Dell servers,” said Roy Premchand, Managing Director of 3W Infra. “Our testing results show that the equipment is delivering serious efficiency and performance enhancements, as promised by Dell.”

“Providing up to 140 TB (!) storage capacity, 3W Infra’s new high-end dedicated server offering is able to efficiently handle high-capacity business workloads,” added Mr. Premchand. “This would make the R540 dedicated server package ideal for applications like software-defined storage, messaging, video streaming and virtualization, to name a few. 3W Infra’s mid-end R440 dedicated server plan on the other hand is optimized for high-density, scale-out computing. This makes it an ideal solution for running virtualization applications and web serving. With its dual processor architecture and ample storage and memory, our R440-powered dedicated server is a good fit for HPC applications as well as standard business applications – for businesses looking for performance but also for efficiency within their dedicated server environments.”

Equipped with ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification for Information Security Management together with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance, the new dedicated servers are located in 3W Infra’s flagship data center in Amsterdam – an Open Compute Project (OCP) ready data center with scalable power modules starting at 5 Ampere per cabinet up to 25 Ampere for high-density requirements.

Key features of 3W Infra’s new R540 (high-end) dedicated server package include:
• Dual Intel Xeon Scalable (Skylake-SP) CPU – up to 20 cores
• 512 GB DDR4
• Dell Remote Access and Lifecycle Controller (iDRAC9 Enterprise)
• Hardware RAID (PERC): Dell PowerEdge RAID Controller
• Up to 12x 3.5” SAS/SATA HDD
• Supports NVMe SSDs
• Up to 20Gbps dedicated uplink to 3W Infra’s high volume (160Gbps of bandwidth), fully redundant and continuously expanding global network
• Operating Systems: Microsoft Windows Server with Hyper-V, VMware ESXi, Ubuntu, CentOS, Debian, or BSD.
• Free-of charge dedicated server setup

Key features of 3W Infra’s new R440 (mid-end) dedicated server package include:
• Dual Intel Xeon Scalable (Skylake-SP) CPU – up to 22 cores
• 512 GB DDR4
• Dell Remote Access and Lifecycle Controller (iDRAC9 Enterprise)
• Hardware RAID (PERC): Dell PowerEdge RAID Controller
• Up to 4x 3.5” Hot Plug HDD
• Supports NVMe SSDs
• Up to 20Gbps dedicated uplink to 3W Infra’s high volume (160Gbps of bandwidth), fully redundant and continuously expanding global network
• Operating Systems: Microsoft Windows Server with Hyper-V, VMware ESXi, Ubuntu, CentOS, Debian, or BSD.
• Free-of charge dedicated server setup

AMD-Powered Dell Servers

3W Infra already has laid its eye on Dell’s very recently introduced PowerEdge servers (R6415, R7415, and R7425) with AMD’s Epyc 7000 processors inside. As with the Intel-powered dedicated servers launched today, it will support NVMe SSDs. If the promised performance, efficiency and reliability results will turn out to be as great as expected when being put on 3W Infra’s test bench, the company will definitely embrace the AMD technology and have 3W Infra’s dedicated server plans powered by AMD processors.

“The R6415 and R7415 servers seem to be able to provide two-socket performance from a single-socket server,” added Mr. Premchand. “This would provide us and our clients with tremendous savings and a much lower TCO figure, savings that would add up as we expect to scale-up 3W Infra’s amount of servers under management significantly in the coming year. The AMD-powered Dell servers are available on the market already, but we will first let our engineers put them on our test bench. In line with 3W Infra’s highly flexible approach and customized offerings though, we may be able to offer these servers – just as any other Dell server type and configuration – before the official dedicated server package launch later on this year.”

The program is aimed at CSPs, MSPs, systems integrators and IT consultancy firms, enabling them to package their own offerings with Datacenter.com’s carrier-neutral and cloud-neutral colocation services designed for contractual and technical flexibility at one of the main Internet hubs in Europe, in Amsterdam.

Datacenter.com launched its on-demand, month-to-month colocation subscription model – called Start Direct Cabinets – at the end of 2017 to cater to the flexibility needs of cloud-oriented companies with dynamic operations and/or hybrid IT infrastructures in place. Now, Datacenter.com brings its highly flexible, cloud-neutral colocation model to the channel of CSPs, MSPs, systems integrators (SIs), IT distributors, IT consultancy firms, and other types of business partners interested in offering colocation services to their clients or referring them to Datacenter.com.


Data Center Amsterdam

“Channel partners selected by Datacenter.com will be able to benefit from our significant investments in state-of-the-art carrier-neutral data center infrastructure as well as our competitive price levels,” said Jochem Steman, CEO of Datacenter.com. “Initially, the program will be available from our brand new AMS1 facility in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, but soon our portfolio of facilities as well as the program will be expanded into other areas around the world – as we’ve planned a fast rollout of carrier-neutral data centers in strategic markets worldwide. The 54.000 square feet facility in the Amsterdam South-East business district is highly secured and outfitted with enterprise-grade amenities such as redundant N+1 cooling units, 2N power and 2N water supply. Next to that, we’ve used indirect adiabatic cooling technology to maximize energy savings, while the facility is certified as compliant for all relevant data center management regulations.”

Datacenter.com’s Channel Partner Program provides a range of benefits for channel partners tailored around the capabilities and requirements of each type of partner. The partner program comes in four flavors catering to the various need and requirements of different types of channel partners:

  • Solution Integration Partnership – This channel program option is built to help enable IT service providers maximize revenue streams by incorporating Datacenter.com’s enterprise-grade, flexible colocation services with month-to-month contracts into their own services offerings. Cloud service providers (CSPs), managed service providers (MSPs) and systems integrators (SIs) are enabled to seamlessly integrate Datacenter.com’s colocation services into their own (hybrid) services offerings.
  • Elite Partnership – This program option provides partners the opportunity to collaborate with Datacenter.com on an equal basis and utilize Datacenter.com’s co-branded sales & marketing enablement to drive opportunities that are closed together.
