Dedicated server, IaaS and cloud hosting provider, Hivelocity, today announced their most popular dedicated server configurations are now available for purchase with near instant deployment capability.
Historically Hivelocity has prided itself on being able to provision any of over 1000 dedicated server configurations in 4 hour or less. With today’s announcement they have raised the stakes and are now offering 7 minute deployments of their most popular servers. Once payment is completed, with a simple mouse-click the pre-built and already racked server gets configured to the customer’s specifications and within minutes is available and ready for use.
Currently Hivelocity offers the instant provisioning feature on its very popular Quad-Core E3-1230v3 3.3GHz Haswell Xeon and Quad-Core E5-1620v3 3.5GHz Haswell Xeon server lines. Plans are to add instant provisioning to several Dual E5-2600v3 Haswell Xeon server configurations within weeks.
Hivelocity will continue to place a high priority on flexibility and keeping an extensive inventory of available server configurations available within 4 hours. The idea is to offset the amount of manual deployments required every day by making only the most popular configurations available via the auto-provisioning feature. “The only downside to the 7 minute servers is those customers don’t get to experience our live order-tracker application and will miss out on watching us on the live stream rack their server for the first time,” says Hivelocity’s Sales Manager, Drew Adams.
