Migrating to Cloud Computing

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Imagine that you could click a few buttons and migrate your environment from a dedicated server to a cloud computing platform. You won’t have to imagine for very long because that’s something that we’re working on right now.

It seems that one of the biggest obstacles for entry into cloud computing is the migration from your old server. We are working hard to find the best way to migrate dedicated servers or managed servers with very little input (or risk) from the end user. That would include migration of your operating system, all installed applications and of course, your precious data.

Testing has gone very well and we are confident we can roll this out in the very near future. At a minimum this provides a mechanism to get you quickly and easily into cloud computing and enjoying all of the benefits while sidestepping the hassles of a typical server migration.

Another area that is of great interest for us is helping clients migrate from server co-location to cloud computing. It’s essentially the same thing as migrating a dedicated server but the benefits and cost savings would be off the charts. We are still in the testing phase but making excellent progress and we expect to push something out to the public very soon. We have already successfully migrated from various platforms and the response from our techs is always the same, jaw-dropping ease and mind numbing efficiency.

Stand by for more news on this exciting development as we continue working hard to bring you the best cloud computing platform available.

1-800-HOSTING Heads to Chicago, Hungry

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

Over the past few months I’ve been evaluating the possibility of establishing a second point of presence outside of our home Dallas market. I am pleased to announce that we are very close to signing the agreement with a facility in the Chicago area. The location is downtown,  close to the financial district for low latency, and includes all  the redundancies and capabilities of our primary Dallas facility.

This location will service as a secondary location and DR (Disaster Recovery) site to our customers wishing to have geographic disparity of their data, for those who wish to maintain off site backups, and for customers interested in moving content closer to users in the Northeast for increased performance. I’ll be in Chicago a few times over the next few weeks for both personal and work reasons, and look forward to getting to know the city and their local cuisine.
