Single Server / Public Cloud
Dedicated public cloud servers at the RackSpace. These are located in Dallas, Texas. Dedicated Public Cloud servers can be located elsewhere if you desire.
Redundant Cluster / Private Cloud
Enterprise Class Dedicated cloud servers on LuxSci's dedicated server hardware at RackSpace in Dallas, Texas. The LuxSci private cloud hardware is dedicated to LuxSci customers only and provides for keeping the cloud servers up and running even in the case of hardware failure on one of the underlying hypervisor servers (using VMWare vMotion).

Service level agreement: SLA

99.99% 99.99% 100% 100%

LuxSci guarantees that our shared services will be available to you at least 99.99% of the time. This means no more than 5 minutes per month of unscheduled downtime! If we do not meet this agreement, we give YOU money back.

Dedicated server customers receive an even stronger SLA with a 100% network uptime promise, 100% infrastructure uptime promise, and a very fast hardware replacement guarantee.

HIPAA compliance available?

Full-disk encryption?

Available*
Enterprise Class Dedicated Servers and Shared Servers
All disks (operating system and data) are encrypted at the storage array level. This protects if the disks are somehow stolen and when the disks are decommissioned.
Business Class Dedicated Servers
The default "included" system disk on Business Class Servers cannot be encrypted. To have full-disk encryption, you need to order more than the "included" disk space (so that you get a separate data drive) and request that the data drive be encrypted. This option protects the data should the underlying media be stolen from the data center, when the underlying storage is reused or decommissioned, and should the media be somehow accessed from a location outside of your running server.

Full-disk encryption does really affect the performance of the drive (it will be marginally slower than otherwise) and it does not protect the data from access via users or processes running in the server itself (e.g. malicious software injected into your web site or a malicious hacker that has penetrated your server).

Most security & privacy

All of our dedicated solutions are true isolated environments so that no other LuxSci customers will have access to your servers for their services.

We also offer premium dedicated physical servers for customers who require dedicated hardware. Please contact sales for pricing information.

Ultra-reliable: Proof against hardware failure

LuxSci's Premium servers employ "VMWare vMotion" to ensure that servers will remain up and running in the event of the failure of underlying hardware components in the hypervisor (e.g. failed CPU, power supply, RAM, motherboard, etc). Additionally, network connections, hardware firewalls, and connections to central storage arrays are all redundant.

If the hardware fails -- we'll know and we'll fix it, but no one else will be the wiser.
