The ion Advantage

  1. ION Computer Systems® has a reputation for building and supporting high-quality custom servers since 1992.
  2. In 1998, ION became the first company in the world to qualify as an Intel Authorized Solution Provider, the program now known as Intel Technology Provide, Platinum Member. All ion systems are built, tested and supported from ion's headquarters in Long Island, New York in the United States of America.
  3. ion is an Intel Technology Provider Partner Platinum Member for 2017 and has been a member of this exclusive program since 1998 when ion became the first company in the world to qualify as an Intel Authorized Solution Provider, as the program was then known.
  4. ion engineers have been certified by Intel, Microsoft, Cisco, VMware, Red Hat and other industry leaders.
  5. All of the components used by ion are chosen from tested compatibility lists to assure that all parts of a server work together.
  6. All specified components are then purchased directly from the manufacturer or an authorized distributor. No components are purchased on the so-called “gray market” where the cost of saving a few dollars is questionable handling practices, improper storage or lack of warranty coverage.
  7. System serial numbers and packaging may be provided by ion or by the customer at the customer's discretion. Either way, serial numbers are programmed into the system's FRU and DMI tables.
  8. Support of ion servers is facilitated through ion's orion program, an ion exclusive data collection program which gathers and assembles DMI, IPMI, FRU, Sensor, System Event Log, RAID state and log, and other configuration information, and transfers the data to ion's secure website for coordinating diagnosis and repair between customers, ion engineers and ion field engineers.
  9. All ion servers ship with ion's unique scorpion device. scorpion includes diagnostic tests, the orion program, and the files and tools needed to restore the firmware versions applied to the system when it was manufactured. This bootable USB Flash device enables all of this support despite the operating system, tools installed, or state of the boot drive in the system.
  10. Worldwide field service is available. Service terms of up to 5 years are available. 7-day x 24-hour on-site service contracts with a 4-hour response are also available. Even service contracts including on-site diagnosis and repair are available.
  11. Advanced warranty replacement is included on all components.
  12. All ion servers undergo extended full-system diagnostic testing. Test results are retained for each system.
  13. Each ion system is photographed, inside and out, to document component arrangement, drive placement and cabling. Such photo-documentation is a huge benefit in field service, allowing a field technician to be fully familiar with even highly customized servers before arriving on site and providing that technician with a visual record of the exact assembly of that specific server.

  14. Finally, each ion system is thoroughly documented. Examples below are all excerpts from the much more complete dataset retained:
