Introducing Spin Servers latest VPC Manager Update (now with IPMI out of band access)!
Are you a Spin Servers bare metal dedicated server customer? If so, your experience just got a whole lot better.
NEW! IPMI (out-of-band) management console:
Spin Servers now provides the ability to set up IPMI access for all of your bare metal dedicated servers.
Customers who have their own IP prefixes announced can choose to utilize one of their IPv4 addresses, or customers utilizing Spin Servers IPs can choose to deploy IPMI for an additional + $1/month.
Once your IPMI group is created you will see the options to manage firewalled IPs (allowed IPs) for your IPMI interface. We would recommend locking down your IPMI interface to specific static IPs you will be using to access it for security reasons, so that it is not open to the whole wide world.
Within the above interface, you will be able to enter in allowed IPs and prefixes that you want IPMI access open to.
You will also be able to view your IPMI Login Credentials within the VPC Manager.
NEW! Public DNS Servers.
Want a fast & local DNS server to resolve to? Spin Servers now provides public DNS for customers to utilize - the DNS server IP can be found within the VPC Manager interface as well.
Place Multiple Servers into the same VLAN
If you have multiple dedicated servers with Spin Servers, you will now be able to place multiple servers within the same VLAN group (VPC network). This allows for you to share IP addresses between multiple servers. If you are a hosting provider, with this feature you are now able to create one large IP pool to save IPs. No longer do you need to have excess IPv4 addresses sitting on your servers.
Additionally, this allows for your bare metal servers to see each other on the Layer 2 Network Connectivity level.
NEW! Manage IP List
Now you are able to view your assigned IP addresses per server, in addition with its netmask/subnet and gateway information.
In addition, you are now able to add/order additional IPs from Spin Servers instantly to any of your dedicated servers for just $1/month each. We've brought this price down from our previous rate of $2/IP down to $1 - in order to add even more value to our customer's experience.
Announce your own IP Addresses
Have your own IP prefixes? You can announce them with Spin Servers at no additional charge and utilize them between your servers with us. In addition, you will be able to split up your prefixes to different sizes. (for example, a /24 can be split into multiple /29's, /28's, etc).
