This solution allows the customer to either Co-Locate their own server at our server farm or Lease a “ready to run” server platform from us.

Any combination of operating systems and applications can be run on this solution. The customer is not restricted in any way and is also responsible for maintaining the OS and application software remotely.

Co-Locate – This server should be configured in a 1-3u” rack mount chassis with a UTP Ethernet 10/100Mb- network adapter.

This server’s OS will be configured to Mitsol’s standards before it is accepted on the network.

Leased – This server will be supplied by Mitsol and configured according to the requirements of the customers. All equipment supplied will be from Dell’s PowerEdge range of servers.

  • All servers supplied on the Lodged server solution must be rack mountable.
  • All servers supplied on the Lodged server solution will be scrutinized before placed onto Mitsol’s server farm.

SOFTWARE RENTAL

Microsoft Certified ASP, we are entitled to ‘rent’ software licenses to customers on a monthly basis. ASP licensing has been of significant assistance to customers facing the prospect of Microsoft’s new licensing programs, which in addition to the traditional upfront costs, now requires significant on-going expenditure.

Under this service, a customer chooses to let Mitsol acquire the necessary software licenses through various Service Provider License Agreements (SPLA). Mitsol then becomes the licensee of the software and will ‘on-rent’ it to its customers. The two ways of licensing on this basis are Subscriber Access License (SAL) and CPU Access License (CAL).

SUBSCRIBER ACCESS LICENSE (SAL)

Per User Licenses

In the SAL mode, a License is required for each unique individual authorized to use the software in any given month.

Additional Benefits of the per subscriber model include:

  • Subscribers can access any number of servers from any number of devices.
  • Subscribers can “scale out” by deploying as many servers as they need.

CPU ACCESSS LICENSE (CAL)

Per Processor Licenses

When licensing via the CPU licenses, an unlimited number of end users can use the software running on a single CPU for each CPU license acquired.

Additional benefits of the per CPU model include:

  • CPU licenses are easier to monitor and count, which lowers the service provider’s administrative costs.
  • CPU licenses are economical across a variety of business scenarios where the utilization of the software may vary.
  • CPU licenses replace Internet Connector licenses, eliminating the need to distinguish between Internet, intranet, and extranet users.

SERVER SERVICE COMPONENT MONITORING

Mitsol’s Server Service Component Monitoring ensures that your Internet-based services are always available.

We will configure and monitor the availability of your server or services (up to 5 per IP) from an off-site location, and if your dedicated server or TCP services become unavailable, alerts are instantly sent to any email addresses specified by you (up to 5). SMS notifications are also available.

SERVER RESOURCE COMPONENT MONITORING

Mitsol’s Server Resource Component Monitoring guarantees that your server is always running at peak performance. We set predetermined thresholds for your CPU, Disk and Memory, and if any of these thresholds are reached, alerts will be sent to any email addresses specified by you (up to 5).

As well as alerting you to potential performance deteriorating situations before they occur, Server Resource Component Monitoring also empowers you to make more qualified decisions about your Internet hosting environment.
