Dedicated Server

From TLDinfo
Jump to: navigation, search

We're providing Dedicated Servers to all RRPproxy resellers, managed at SKYWAY DataCenter, a subsidiary of Key-Systems. Resellers can lease an entire server not shared with anyone else. This is more flexible than shared hosting, as you have full control over the server(s), including choice of operating system.

The SKYWAY Dedicated Servers with real server hardware offer a professional one-stop solution and address business customers and discerning private clients with a high demand for performance and availability. The 19" hardware is designed for continuous operation in a data center. With hot-swap frame and redundant power supplies it provides everything you need for the professional server operation. Furthermore, all servers pass through an extended burn-in test before the initial operation in order to identify possibly defective parts early. If a hardware defect is noticed after some time of operation, you benefit from our own spare parts storage.

Operating System

All Dedicated Servers the latest version of Ubuntu-LTS (Long Term Support) pre-installed.

Remote Access via IPMI

All Dedicated Servers are reachable via unrestricted IPMI access, operating independently of the operating system to allow administrators to manage the Dedicated Server remotely in the absence of an operating system. Thus IPMI functions can be used in any of these scenarios:

  • before an OS has booted (allowing, for example, the remote monitoring or changing of BIOS settings)
  • when the system is powered down
  • after OS or system failure – the key characteristic of IPMI compared with in-band system management such as by remote login to the operating system using SSH.

The login credentials for remote access via IPMI can be retrieved via the StatusServer command:

[COMMAND]
COMMAND=SatusServer
SERVER=dserver_2
[RESPONSE]
...
property[rmc login][0] = ADMIN [Remote Management Card Login]
property[rmc pass][0] = ADMIN_PASS [Remote Management Card Password]
...

The IP address to connect to IPMI is always the first one returned in the StatusServerNetwork command:

[COMMAND]
COMMAND=StatusServerNetwork
NETWORKID=2 [ID Of installed Network card]
[RESPONSE]
...
property[address][0] = 192.168.1.5
...

More general information about IPMI: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intelligent_Platform_Management_Interface

How It Works

After ordering via AddServer your Dedicated Server will be activated within 2 working days. The current status of your order can be retrieved using the StatusServer command.

[COMMAND] 
command=StatusServer 
SERVER=dserver_17 
[RESPONSE] 
...
property[status][0] = REQUESTED 
...

When the Server is rady the "status" will change to ACTIVE. There will also be an Event informing about Status changes.

Expiration dates will be adjusted after succesfull Installation of the server. There will be also an Event informing about this.

FAQ

What is the minimum term to lease a Dedicated Server?

The minimum term to lease a Dedicated Server is 12 months. After these 12 months Dedicated Servers can be renewed on a monthly basis. Dedicated Servers fully support AutoRenew, AutoRenewOnce and AutoExpire settings, just like domains in your RRPproxy account.

Is an Add Grace Period available?

No. Dedicated Servers are set up manually by SKYWAY. Once ordered, they will be delivered.

Is there any backup available?

No. As these machines are Dedicated Servers we do not store any backups. Please make sure you have sufficient backups of your data.

Is there any kind of server control panel (e. g. Plesk, cpanel etc.) preinstalled?

No, currently there is no server control panel preinstalled.

How to access and administrate the server?

All dedicated servers can be accessed and administrated via SSH using the provided login credentials. If the provided login name is not root (e. g. "sysadm"), administrator privileges can be gained by using sudo.

What happens if I delete a Dedicated Server using DeleteServer?

The Dedicated Server will be deactivated and no further access is possible, also not via IPMI. After 7 working days all data and settings on the Dedicated Server will be purged.

Is a restore possible after deletion?

Currently a restore is not possible after deletion.

My Dedicated Server has been deactivated automatically. What can I do to retrieve it?

Please contact our RRPproxy support at support@rrpproxy.net.

What happens if I violate the Terms and Conditions using a Dedicated Server?

The server will be deactivated and you will receive a proper notification. The server can not be accessed any more, also not via IPMI.

Which bandwidth and which data volume is available?

All Dedicated Servers are connected via a 100 mBit switch, the switch itself is connect with 1 GBit. The data volume is flat and the fair use principle applies.

I need a Dedicated Server with different specifications. What can I do?

We highly recommend to get in touch with our colleagues at SKYWAY DataCenter GmbH for a customized quote!
