Today we’ve reached a monumental achievement in VPS.NET history. Some of the very first cloud servers ever deployed on VPS.NET infrastructure have reached the old age of 4 years old. While the under lying hardware powering the cloud servers has been upgraded numerous times, our customers have been able to reliably, and safely count on VPS.NET to host their data over an extended period of time.
Taking a look back at the history of VPS.NET, there’s been many changes and upgrades to the infrastructure, all aimed at benefiting the customer. During the initial startup phase of VPS.NET, Radar powered our cloud management system. Since then Radar has been spun off into its own company, OnApp, which now powers 1 out of every 3 public clouds in the world. Just recently, we announced that all of our clouds will be upgraded to OnApp 3.0, which will provide our customers with numerous performance increases, faster cloud server deployment, resulting in an even more reliable hosting experience.
Our infrastructure has also dramatically changed -- in the past, our network powered by trusty old reliable Cisco 6509’s, have now been upgraded to Cisco Nexus 7000 series. Our SANs, which started as white box CentOS machines, are now all powered by HP series enterprise SANs or in our latest clouds, 3Par 7000 Series SANs. Earlier this month we announced our hypervisors will be upgraded to E5-2620 processors, providing users with 6 powerful CPU cores to host their cloud server.
Finally, the team of VPS.NET has grown dramatically. During our infancy, we shared many of the same resources with our sister UK2 Group companies. Now VPS.NET has a fully dedicated team of over 100 people, located around the globe, in our offices in Logan, Utah; Kochin, India, and L’viv, Ukraine. Of course, the contributions of key members in the past, like Ditlev, Carlos, and Nick, are all remembered, and still greatly appreciated.
We look forward to many more years of hosting you. And as always, we’ll continue to innovate and lead the cloud hosting industry!
