North Carolina-based web hosting provider, AIT, has introduced two multi-server offerings it calls 'business-in-a-rack'. The company is bundling multiple dedicated servers, each designed to handle specific functions of a business, such as e-mail, applications, or databases.
“These plans provide as many of the key pieces of an operation as possible in a single, cost-effective package. We're offering a complex-style solution without the complexity, or the price tag.'' says Clarence Briggs, CEO of AIT.
AIT's 'Six Paks' are 'chilled' in the company's 25,000 square foot data center, and are available in two configurations. Package 1 comprises of two application servers, two database servers and two web servers. Package 2 comprises of one web server, one application server, one database server, one firewall server, one email server and one “hot spare”.
Collectively, the Intel-powered servers create a mini-infrastructure with 12 IP addresses, full root access, expansive disk space and bandwidth, and the ability to host an unlimited number of domains and sub-domains. The Six-Pak concept was created in response to the growing reliance on IT for improving business efficiency.
Briggs adds, ''Many of our customers add components to help their operations, and we realized there had to be a better way of doing that than the piecemeal approach. This is that better way, particularly for companies that rely on secure, stable IT systems for operations.''
Clarence Briggs, the chief executive of Advanced Internet Technologies, has been charged with knocking an Army soldier to the ground Aug. 26, hitting him in the face and smashing his head into the concrete.
Briggs, in turn, has charged the soldier, Staff Sgt. Rodney Goudy of Fort Bragg, with throwing him to the ground and threatening to kill him.
The violence happened outside the B&B Sports Tavern on Person Street in downtown Fayetteville, records say.
AIT's chief financial officer, Steve Young, has also filed a charge against Goudy from the incident. Young accuses the soldier of threatening to hurt him.
AIT is an international Internet Web-hosting company that Briggs started in his home in Fayetteville in 1996. Its headquarters now fills much of a city block in downtown Fayetteville.
Briggs and Goudy are scheduled to face their charges in Cumberland County District Court on Monday. However, court and Fayetteville police records say that Briggs has not yet been served with the warrant charging him with assaulting Goudy.
Goudy, Briggs and Young presented varied accounts of what happened at the bar.
In his charge, Goudy wrote, "Mr. Briggs asked me to go outside to discuss something because the music inside of B&B Sports Bar was loud. When we turned the corner, Mr. Briggs had his arm around me like we were old friends and he stuck his leg out, grabbed me and threw me on the ground, sat on me and proceeded to hit me in the face. He threw my head back into the concrete."
Goudy declined a request for an interview. Goudy's lawyer, David Courie, said that his law firm is "investigating scope, severity and frequencies of their alleged behavior," but declined to make further comment.
Young also declined an interview request. Briggs referred questions to AIT spokesman Alex Lekas.
