Dedicated Server online.
July 15, 2004
We have just added a new server named Paladin to
our line of dedicated servers. With the recent increase in the number
of orders in the last couple of months, we have decided to go ahead
and bring in a new server early on. Paladin will
also serve an intranet backup system on top of our existing NAS system.
It will also provide us with a higher level of redundancy which can
serve as a restore point in case of hardware failures on the other
In our effort to provide a highly realiable and high-uptime service,
we make it a point that our servers are not overcrowded. We have set
our threshold to about 35% of capacity. This will allow a lot of ample
space for growth of existing accounts hosted in a particular server.
