Halcyon Mini Grid Package:
3CPU, 4GB RAM, 60GB SSD
Hosting is $73.42 a month.
Setup is $275.00 one time charge.
1 hour FREE training session included! This is the smallest Halcyon Grid available. It will handle up to 10 55,000 prim regions on a single instance of Windows Server 2008. This mini grid is not directly expandable. It is able to be upgraded to a larger setup with separate region and services virtual machines. This Halcyon grid is for a person a bit more experienced in grid operation. Halcyon is a grid system that came from OpenSim but is developed for a more commercial or enterprise use. Halcyon follows Second Life closely in scripting and other things. Features: Very stable system. Region size is 256×256 only. Region crossings are very smooth. Has PhysX physics engine for smooth movement. The script engine is compatible with Second Life. Maximum prims on a region is 45,000. Open Sim assets are usable in Halcyon. SL assets are generally also. Uses a more robust and expandable database and asset system. A Halcyon grid is a closed grid with no Hypergrid. Security is better on Halcyon. A real advantage is the expandability. This world can become at a later time a much bigger world the size of a full commercial grid. This makes growth easy and relatively cheap. Halcyon comes with a website for control and front end services. The website can be integrated into another website if desired. Soon there will be a marketplace just for Halcyon worlds. This is setup by our Halcyon expert Bob Curtice (Vinhold Starbrook) and he is available for tech support as well.
Full technical support is available as you need it from a knowledgeable support technician in the USA who speaks English well.
