How are assembled your Minecraft Servers ?


Minecraft Server Assembled

Presentation

We design and assemble our server hardware, this allows us to be free on hardware selection, and not be limited by a foreign provider.
We don't simply resell dedicated server hardware as many other hosting companies (from soyoustart, ovh, hetzner).

We made huge investments to be able to provide you the best low latency up to date configuration.
We like to do everything on our own, the same way we are developing our own Minecraft hosting control page and are not using multicraft, as 80% of hosting companies.

We like to be free on our choices, and not depend on others.
We don't simply make investments and ask other people to do the main work for us.


So we wanted to share with you our back-office server integration, we like to be fully transparent on our services because before all, we are gamers like you, and also geeks ;)

We worked for months to design, test, order, assemble all server, we hope that you will enjoy your servers, as we enjoyed to create them.



Server componentsServer Hardware components selection

We selected the AMD Ryzen 3900X processor because, after over a decade of INTEL leadership on CPU, AMD came back from nowhere with a beast 7nm architecture, this was unexpected, they did a technological leap, that we didn't saw since15 years after INTEL and their Core2Duo.
The performances are insane, we come from 9000 CPU benchmark score with our old E3-1245V2 to 32000 with the Ryzens, it's just a new line opened in the server hardware possibilities.

It's why we chose to massively invest in them, to make you fully benefit of this power on your servers.
Especially, that since the Minecraft 1.13 release, the server CPU requirement kept getting higher over time.

I'm sure that you noticed in the past, some lags error messages, they were appearing more often on our previous hardware based on Intel E3-1245V2, so it was the time to do a massive upgrade.

We order each component in Europe & Nort America, and then assemble them, we designed our heatsink cooling system to optimize the server performances.
Ryzen 3900X have 12 Cores and 24 Thread at high frequency, they can heat quickly, so it's why it's very important to have a powerful cooling system to avoid system to throttle.

The reliability and uptime is a priority for us, it would not be acceptable to have a server downtime in the middle of a game session.
When you pay for a service and put your trust in us, it's to be able to fully use what you are paying for, we know that, because we are customers like you, so we do the best to take all care and security on our hardware selection.




As you can see, we only use industrial-grade products, as Supermicro for the chassis, with a 92% power consumption platinum power supply, and also Samsung DDR4 2666Mhz, and HP NVMe EX950 1To on Raid 1 to prevent from disk failure.

We also have spare components in case of an issue, and technicians ready to assist and replace them in case of failure.
Of course, all those servers are monitored 24/24, and we are alerted of any kind of error.

All server are assembled by hand, we take especially care on the CPU cooling part, by using specific thermal paste, to lower the CPU temperature under maximal 85°C.

The chassis is equipped with Dual 13.000RPM Fan, pushing almost 50CFM.



Server charge

Now it's great to have a powerful server architecture, but it's also important to not overload the servers with overselling, it's why all the servers are kept under 40% charge every day.
This allows us to always keep enough power left in case of intensive usage, and to avoid lags.



We made this presentation to be fully transparent with you, hope you enjoy the quality of our services.
