"What's cool is that Prime Computer is not an anonymous big corporation, but a local company in St. Gallen."
Christian Schutter, Management Veloblitz
PrimeServer powered by electricity from the public swimming pool
We own three Prime Computer devices, all of a different generation. We put the latest device, the PrimeServer, into productive operation at the beginning of 2018. We used the two PrimeMinis we bought before as server and backup server. That’s why we called them prime servers even before we had a real PrimeServer.
The devices are great for us for various reasons. Because they require little power, they continue to run for a long time in the event of a power failure using a simple USV battery. Our rack is located in an office that is used for work and we appreciate the silence very much. No fan also means that no dust is sucked in. Because the fan is not available in the first place, it cannot break. PrimeServer is the ideal solution for small companies who want an in-house server.
What’s cool is that Prime Computer is not an anonymous big corporation, but a local company in St. Gallen. If I have any questions, I can call directly and they will help me. The Veloblitz attaches great importance to using local companies and having a reference to them. The server is operated with electricity from the public swimming pool, which is only a few hundred meters away from our headquarters.
Not a purchase argument with us, but the design is very nice, actually almost too good for the rack.
