Dedicated servers are the mainstay of Xssist™. We live and breathe dedicated servers.

We offer dedicated servers for your web, email and application hosting needs. You get to use good quality enterprise servers, from 4 CPU cores to 32 CPU cores per server, from 1GB ECC RAM to 768GB ECC RAM per server. We will maintain the hardware, so you do not need to worry about replacing faulty hardware yourself. You no longer have to get up at 4AM to find spare parts to fix a faulty server.

We specialise in providing dedicated servers. Our customers are web hosting companies, web designers, application service providers, and SMEs. Your customers access your services from Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, Japan, Vietnam, Thailand, Hong Kong, China, India, countries in the Asia Pacific region. You want, and appreciate having competent Singaporean sysadmins as your first line of support.

Think of us as a sysadmin boutique™.

What do we provide that our competition within the Asia Pacific commonly do not?

1. Monitoring of network latency is accessible publicly

It is well and good to boast of extremely high uptime figures, multi-homed networks, and branded network switches and routers. We do not do that. We know the Internet is a best effort network, and we try to gather as much information about the health of the bandwidth we are getting from our provider. From there, we send feedback to our provider and ask for improvements where appropriate. We are server guys, we take care of the servers, and the datacentres which we get rack space from provides the network.

We provide charts which records a history of the network availability and latency which you can check before getting a dedicated server from us, rather than providing unrealistic uptime guarantees. We constantly try to improve our service. If you have higher expectation, let us know, and we may be able to arrange for higher quality bandwidth just for you. It will of course come at a higher price.

2. Fully spec-ed servers, usable bandwidth

We provide servers that are fully spec-ed for your application. If you are running a busy forum, we usually include 8GB RAM (as of Dec 2010) and above for you. If you are running cPanel, and hosting hundreds of sites, we want you to have SAS (Serial attached SCSI). We like to provide RAID 1 with even our lower end servers. For bandwidth, when we quote 10 Mbps commit with your server, that means you get the 10 Mbps from us. Not 10 Mbps "shared" or "unmetered" or 10BaseT port, i.e. smoke and mirrors terms to provide you with alot less than 10 Mbps.

3. Graphs of our network usage

As of Jun 09, we have committed bandwidth of 107 Mbps from the datacentre. Current usage is around 65 Mbps during peak. You can see the usage from

If you have requirements from 1 Mbps, up to 40 Mbps, we are probably the right size for you. If your requirement is above 40 Mbps, we may be too small for you, as of 22nd Dec 10.

4. KVM over IP, virtual media, and remote reboot switches

We have invested heavily in KVM over IP, virtual media and remote reboot switches. KVM over IP allows a remote user a view of the video output of the server, and control of the keyboard and mouse inputs, over the Internet. How is this useful? When is KVM over IP needed? Any scenario where you lose network access to the server, such as access denied after editing iptables or sshd, bootup stuck at fsck or misconfigured grub, kernel problems, /etc/fstab, the list goes on and on.

What if you need to boot into a rescue disk? Virtual media, together with KVM over IP, allows that. You can mount a floppy, CD or DVD on your PC, and present the media over the Internet to the server. The virtual media, is emulated via USB.

How about a kernel crash, or server being unresponsive for any reason? A remote reboot switched PDU works well in this scenario. Login via web interface, and issue power off and on. Check the status via KVM.

With KVM over IP, and remote reboot (switched PDU), it is almost like being in front of the server.

5. Obsession on monitoring

We keep track of the temperature and humidity in our racks, bandwidth usage, network latency, and soon we will be able to show you graphs of voltage coming into the racks.

If temperature is too high, or fluctuating too much, we want to know. If there are brownouts, we want to know. If latency to a specific country is higher than usual, or there is a DDOS affecting bandwidth, we want to know. And, we want to share what we know with our customers.

From monitoring, we know, and our customers know, where our weaknesss are, and we constantly try to improve, and strengthen areas where we are weak in.

6. Strive to improve

Every month, we put back ~30% of revenues into purchasing and maintaining equipment. That means, for every $100/mth you pay us, we are spending ~$33/mth on purchasing more equipment. These can be more network equipment, firewalls, packet shapers, IDS, UPS, air distribution units, spare parts and more servers. This improves the quality of service that we provide customers.
