– E5-2620v2/16GB RAM/RAID in Valdivia, Chile for $48/month

infofractalJudemir, from Infofractal, submitted his first offer to Low End Box for a really interesting Intel E5-2620v2 based dedicated server hosted in Chile for less than $50/month! This is one of the first times we’ve featured any offer hosted in Chile, so that makes this dedicated server offer very unique. They run their own datacenter that utilizes new technology to reduce energy consumption.

Infofractal is a registered company in the country of Chile (ID#76.809.612-0). Their terms of service is available on their website for review. They accept PayPal and Crypto for payment for customers outside of Chile.

In their own words:

“We are a new datacenter company that believes the current trend of building huge datacenters and releasing tons of kWh as waste heat is unsustainable. We designed a custom container datacenter where we can use the waste heat for drying certified firewood, a renovable fuel that is still expensive here in Chile.
We are primarily a two man team, my associate (Juan Cifuentes) and I come from an academia background, and worked using and managing HPC clusters for 5 years before leaving academia, due to how saturated it is. One of the problems plaguing HPC clusters is all the heat generated, since the servers are actually used and not just sitting idle like web servers.  So we thought, why not just build the datacenter where all that heat is useful? So now we built it in the south of Chile, 900km from Santiago. We encourage our users to use as much CPU as they can. We also can provide special support for users that want to do HPC tasks! Infiniband really makes any cluster application a breeze, makes gigabit feel like dsl.”
