Where is it actually hosted?

22

How can I tell if my provider is really running their own network and hosting me in Australia? I like to be on top of every issue we have at work, some call me a micromanager and some call me a pain in the backside, however I love my job, and I love my customers! I like to ensure that everyone is getting what they are paying for, and that is a quality service here at Servers Australia! So every day, I spend time with the Sales, Marketing and Support teams to ensure that everything is running as it should! However last week I heard two VERY interesting conversations, one was from tech support and the other was in the sales department. I heard one of our tech support staff explaining to a customer, that the reason they had issues with their site load time on their old host was because they were being hosted offshore, in the USA to be exact… however they were under the impression that they were hosted here in Australia because they were buying from an Australia hosting company, who claimed to be hosted here in Australia. This is very common issue, as customers generally don’t know if their host is being true and really is hosting them in Australia or offshore. You might ask, “Why does it matter?” Well there are many reasons, such as site load times, data security and privacy, connectivity congestion to the offshore site and the risk of undersea cable….

Wow, a month has gone already since I last blogged! Well alot has happened in that time, and when I say alot I mean alot! I will try not bore people with the boring ‘paper work’ and formality stuff and get down to the nitty gritty of what has been happening! Well after my last post you would have seen that we started construction on the office downstairs which included a reception / display area, large board room, small meeting room, kitchen / lunchroom, server build and test room and a common area for the co-location facility! Well after I posted that there had been a heap of work done and the Gyprock has all been completed along with all the internal electrical, security and security cameras, there was ALOT of cable that went into the office and I am amazed at how much we used… OK, so now you are wondering about the Data Centre, well this has progressed heaps since my last post and we now have some of the power upgrades that we were waiting on and the fiber has finally been laid, it has not been tested as yet and this is one final thing that we are waiting on before we can open stage one of the Data Centre. Once stage one is open we will instantly be starting on stage two, and I will be posting a day by day blog of that once it has started and been completed. For now I have….

More office construction

After what feels like a few weeks, we have finally started construction on the lower level of the office, this will give us a nice reception / display area, large board room, small meeting room, kitchen / lunchroom, server build and test room and a common area for the co-location facility! Since the construction only started on Monday, you can only see the skeleton of the walls, the Gyprock will be complete by Thursday or Friday and then it looks like we will be painting on the weekend… Once this is complete, we will move onto the finalization of the co-location facility, there has just been a huge amount of back end things that have had to be resolved before we can actually finish the flooring and cabling, the main contributor is the fibre links and the installation of more power to the building to handle the load.

New head office!

firstly oops! I have been soo busy with everything that has been going on I forgot to Blog! So here I am with some pretty cool updates! The main reason behind me being so busy is that we are building a state of the art co-location facility in Tuggerah and that has taken much of my time, BUT what a lot of people did not know was that we also moved the Servers Australia, One Provider and Replica offices and finally combined the three companies into one BIG office, and yes it is nice and BIG with even more room to come in the next few weeks once construction is finished! The move happened over the past week, and we will hopefully be settled by the end of the week and fully functional again…although we will not be doing an official opening for around another 4-6 weeks, as this is the time that the SAUDC-1 will be completed, once this is done we will be having some huge specials and a celebration of the new office and data centre, so if you want to join in simply send me an e-mail. We would love to see you there! And of course it is no party without food and beverages, so there will be lots of that supplied by us. I have attached some images of the office below, the bright colours are matching to our logo (I know they are bright, but they look soo soo cool!) Samantha and Myself have our….

Data Centre

Ok, so in my last post I stated that we (Servers Australia Pty Ltd) are building a Data Centre shortly. This is a very big step for us as a wholesale provider and will allow us to offer affordable, reliable and cheap co-location space to our new and existing customers. We will be building the facility to high standards and will be using proper Data Centre equipment such as: – N+1 CRAC cooling systems – N+1 Power system – 300mm raised flooring, capable of holding 1800kg / square metre The first stage of the facility will house approx 150 racks with stage 2 housing a further 150-200 racks, we are anticipating to have stage 1 open by June 30th and I will start posting photos and updates on here daily when the construction actually starts! So far we have ordered all the needed parts / components for the Data Centre and most of it has arrived, the images below show the racks being loaded from the manufacturer onto a truck to be sent to us and the raised flooring in a container that was shipped to us (there is over 300m2 of flooring in stage 1) The next images will be of the start of construction, and the connection of the redundant Gigabit Fibre links!
