Quote of the Month
“We’ve been purchasing iXsystems servers for a few years now and couldn’t be more satisfied with their hardware, customer service and overall experience dealing with different teams within iX. Whether we’re ordering 1 NAS or 100 servers they always deliver in all areas. Their customer service is second to none; rarely have we experienced hardware or logistical issues and any issue has been resolved professionally, following up every step along the way until satisfactory completion. I would highly recommend iXsystems for any server and storage needs.”
