So what sets us apart?

There are a lot of server system builders out there, so what really makes the difference between any old server and a 3XS server? Firstly, our company pedigree has long been established on GPU-accelerated compute - whether this be for gaming, graphics or analysis. Many of our larger competitors can supply specialist servers adding multiple GPUs, but their model and configuration choice may be limited, as this is only a small section of their market.

For us, GPU-acceleration is our bread and butter - we’re designing, testing and most importantly, using high powered workstations and servers on a daily basis. Indeed, our system architects have professional graphics or video interests so they know exactly what they’d want from a system themselves. This gives us the edge in building highly reliable yet innovative server systems that deliver the most performance for your budget. Let's look at a few elements that set 3XS Business-Series systems apart.

The Highest Quality Components

We will never cut corners with our customers by using unbranded components - we’re just as demanding as you are and expect our servers to work reliably for years. Furthermore, as builders of systems designed for the likes of HPC, AI and virtual graphics we choose our components carefully to ensure a sweet spot is met - enough grunt to deliver the performance expected, but not over-specced for the sake of it adding unnecessary costs.

Being high level partners of brands such as AMD, Intel and NVIDIA we have priority access to new product releases allowing us to test numerous configurations as we design a server.

Scalability and Flexibility

3XS has won numerous awards for its unique custom PC builds and we’ve taken that mentality to our business series too. Yes, we have a series of ‘standard’ server builds designed for general use or advanced workloads such as remote rendering, deep learning and virtual compute, but if you require something bespoke to address a very specific challenge, we can help. Ten or more GPUs in a single chassis? No problem. Tiered flash storage offering NVMe SSD, SATA SSD and HDD in a single system? Easy. A server accelerated by multiple GPU and DPU add-in cards? Of course.

Try before you buy

At 3XS we recognise that purchasing high performance server hardware is a significant outlay and that you want to be sure you make the right decision, so with that in mind we operate a secure proof-of-concept (PoC) environment. Hosted in a secure datacentre, our PoC infrastructure allows you to test systems with your own data alongside storage, connectivity and software solutions to enable you to see how things will work and what improvements could be made. Our expert team will also guide you through the process so you get the most out of it too

Furthermore, our system architects have also undergone extensive technical brand and product training to ensure their work is of the utmost quality.

Intensively Tested

Building a server may only take a few hours, but installing all the software and ensuring that everything is configured properly and that the system runs correctly and is stable, takes up a huge amount of time. By ordering a 3XS system our engineers take this painful process away, as all our systems undergo a strenuous quality control procedure which includes updating any Windows Server or Linux software, installing the latest drivers and motherboard BIOS. All systems then receive an additional 24-hour burn-in test to ensure rock-solid stability.

Premium packaging

Nothing is more frustrating than awaiting delivery of your order only to find it was damaged in transit. That’s why once your 3XS server has passed our rigorous quality control procedure, any space inside the case will be filled with anti-static bubble wrap. This has been specially developed for 3XS to protect your system when it is with our courier, and should be removed before turning on the system for the first time. We also double box all systems, with the inner box cushioned inside the larger outer box by a layer of shock-absorbing plastic air pockets.

When you receive your 3XS system, it will include a welcome pack which covers detailed setup instructions and all the installed software, cables, paperwork and accessories that accompany your system. We also preinstall a Windows application on your system that has shortcuts to some helpful diagnostic tools and our contact details.

The 3XS Support application can be found running in the system tray in the bottom right corner of the task bar with a ‘3XS’ icon – simply right click on the icon to open the menu then left click on the option you want. All systems also ship with a USB recovery stick which includes a backup of the operating system. Simply insert the recovery stick and follow the instructions on screen and the recovery stick will refresh your system back to factory defaults, should you suffer any software instability or crashes. Alternatively, through our professional services team, your system can be delivered, racked and configured for you, if required.
