According to a recent report from SIM IT Trends, many enterprise organizations are not doing all they can to protect themselves from online criminals and hackers. Forty-six percent of organizations don’t have a Chief Information Security Officer and only sixty percent of organizations require security training of all staff.Read More
If I offered you $10 now and $15 next week, which would you choose? Depending on your personality, you might think the obvious choice is to wait until next week and get 50% more money, but studies in psychology have shown that the majority of people take the money and run.
There are three main planks to any secure system: technology, policy, and education. If any one of these is lacking, maintaining data security over the long term is next to impossible. A technological solution is worthless if no one knows how to use it and why it should be used. Even if they do know how to use it, without an enforced policy, it’s entirely likely that employees will take the path of least resistance and greatest convenience.Read More
It’s a truism that companies have more data than at any other time in history. They have more ways of collecting, generating, and storing data than ever before. Because of cloud storage, data lakes can expand almost indefinitely and no one has to look at the hard drives piling up.Read More

In 2016, the Amsterdam data center industry grew by 30%. In 2017, it expanded even faster, a trend that is expected to continue into 2018 and beyond. Due to this increased interest by our clients in Amsterdam, earlier this year, we announced the introduction of our Amsterdam data center to the global network of ServerMania data centers.
We’re proud to announce that ServerMania has two huge new additions to our hardware portfolio – Intel’s revolutionary Xeon Scalable Processors. Available immediately to our dedicated hosting clients, the Intel Xeon Silver 4114 and Xeon Gold 5118 will replace the Dual E5-2630v4 and Dual E52650v4. Let’s talk a bit about what this means – and how you might leverage our new tech for your own business.Read More
ServerMania, a leading provider of dedicated and cloud hosting, today announced the release of two new CPU models for its hosting clients – the Intel Xeon Silver 4114 and Xeon Gold 5118.
Intel’s Xeon Scalable Processors, codenamed Skylake, use a new Chipset known as Lewisberg. In addition to significant performance enhancements, these processors offer enhanced mesh architecture, built-in networking and fabric, and a new x86 instruction set developed specifically for high-performance computing environments. They have been touted as the most significant leap forward in server CPUs in over a decade.
As with the recently-announced W-Series Servers, ServerMania will offer the Xeon Silver 4114 and Gold 5118 with a choice of SATA, SSD, or NVME storage drives. The former will have 10 cores, 20 threads, and a frequency of 2.2 gHz. The latter will have 12 cores, 24 threads, and a frequency of 2.3 gHz.
Both options are intended as replacements for two of ServerMania’s legacy dedicated servers – the Dual E5-2630v4 and Dual E52650v4. Although the specs between the two are similar, the performance enhancements and tweaks present in the Xeon line make them far better-suited for high-demand, heavy-load computing tasks, per Kevin Blanchard, ServerMania CEO.
“The Intel Xeon Silver and Gold lines, much like the W-Series, are ideally-suited for the sort of high-intensity workload our clients frequently require,” explains Blanchard. “They are a significant step up from the legacy E5-2600 line, with more versatility, flexibility, and efficiency. We feel our clients both great and small will be incredibly satisfied with these new options.”
As with the W-Series, the Intel Xeon Scalable Series will be available both managed and unmanaged, with two tiers available in the former case. Essential is intended for clients who prefer to manage their own servers with technical support from ServerMania. The latter, Empowered, will see ServerMania’s engineers handle setup, security audits, patching, hardening, and more.
“We’ve always sought to provide the best services and infrastructure possible to our clients,” says Blanchard. “Offering the Xeon Scalable Series is a step forward in that regard. They’re cutting-edge in every sense of the word.”
“As always,” Blanchard continues, “ServerMania will accommodate any unique hardware or managed services requirements. We’re interested in enabling and empowering our clients – everything else is secondary.”
Since it was founded in 2002, ServerMania has always strived to provide its clients with enterprise-level service at an unbeatable cost. ServerMania offers a wide range of fully-customizable dedicated, hybrid, cloud and colocation hosting services.
