Now that we're sold out of the Atom 330's and have had enough time to test the Atom D510 systems, they're now our standard Atom offering. This will provide our customers with a greener and more efficient solution, with improved performance and features, at the same $99.95 a month price. With the Atom D510, all of the new systems we purchase now come with IPMI. IPMI gives you complete control of your systems, as if you were local to the system. It allows you to use remote/virtual media, reboot the system, view the boot-up process, run manual fsck, boot into a different kernel if your current kernel is freezing up, etc.
We can absorb the added cost of IPMI at this price point because of the significant power usage reduction in the new platform. Even though performance is roughly 5% better than the old line of Atoms, the power usage is cut nearly in half. The new Atoms allow us to run servers at full load while only using ~35 watts of power, making these an extremely "green" solution.
You can order these new Atom servers for only $99.95 a month here: http://steadfast.net/services/dedicated.basic.php
