At CNMC, we don't allow any server on our network until it has been certified in our test environment. Each server is inspected and assembled by our technicians who are the best in the business. By going this extra mile, we afford our clients some extra peace of mind and some security in knowing that their data and Internet business are on a proven robust platform. Industry statistics have shown that most common failures occur in the first 48-72 hours of server usage. Our burn-in period is 72 hours ensuring that all of the most common failures will occur and be corrected prior to putting a server in to production.
