OS Installation and Configuration

iX servers are powered by Open Source operating systems. Open Source operating systems offer superior levels of security, flexibility, and performance, making them perfect candidates for server use.

Our team of experts specialize in open source software and can install and configure the open source OS of your choosing to your servers. Many iX professionals are FreeBSD and PC-BSD® contributors and are experts in the installation and use of these operating systems. We’ll work with you to discuss your needs and the open source OS best suited to your server platform.


Server virtualization is a proven technology that enables multiple virtual machines to run on a single physical server. Each virtual machine is completely isolated from other virtual machines and is decoupled from the underlying host by a thin layer of software known as a hypervisor.

This allows each virtual machine to run different operating systems and applications. Because the machines have been decoupled from the underlying host, the guest can also be moved from one physical server host to another without disconnecting; this is known as live migration. These attributes are transforming how organizations approach virtual computing. iX products support common hypervisors such as vSphere, XenServer, Hyper-V, bhyve, KVM and VirtualBox and TrueNAS has been certified by Citrix, Microsoft and VMware.


From optimizing your small office set-up to guidance on large-scale deployments, the iX team can ensure you get the most from your PC-BSD® and FreeBSD systems. With the experience of our on-staff FreeBSD contributors and committers, we’re ready to serve any development need.

Software Configuration

Software setup doesn’t end at installation. If you have additional special needs for your software configuration or just want everything to be ready to go out of the box, iX is ready to help.

When a deployment needs us to go above and beyond, our developers and software experts will create the solution you need, in exactly the way you need it.
