User managed servers

It is possible for users with rack-mountable servers to have those servers physically hosted in an AITS machine room, which has proper physical security, environmental control and monitoring, and redundant protected power.

Please note, however, that in general there is no physical access to those hosts. Instead, remote KVM (console) services are available, as well as a way to remotely turn power on and off for a given host. In very exceptional cases (for example, equipment is defective and needs to be replaced), brief supervised access to the room can be arranged.

It is also worth noting that user-managed means just that: managed by you, the user. AITS will not supply any significant assistance or consulting after the system is physically installed.
