At CoreXchange, we offer colocation solutions to help businesses grow. This time HermeTek, a company that provides implementation and management services for open source networks and servers, has a story to share regarding its experience with CoreXchange.
HermeTek’s Life Before CoreXchange
We’ve noted several common fears clients have about colocation. We want to assure you it’s safe and address those fears:
1. I Don’t Know what Colocation Is
Recent heavy rains from Texas to the Midwest and Northeast may have put a damper on trick-or-treating for Halloween in some areas but the danger of severe and flash floods from heavy rainfall should be a real fear of residents and businesses alike. In the United States, floods are the most common severe weather emergency.
Prior to signing on with CoreXchange, Admin on Demand, LLC., primarily offered remote management of Linux-based servers. A small company, Admin on Demand was working to find a way to grow easily while maintaining profit margins and high-touch support.
CoreXchange is pleased to announce that the Pinnacle Corporation of Arlington, TX has recently added a third cab to its existing services. The company has graciously allowed CoreXchange to share some information about its experiences working with us.
Richard is the company's Data Center Manager. When asked whether he is happy with the colocation services CoreXchange has provided, he said, "Absolutely. I’ve been with two or three data centers now and CoreXchange has been the best by far." In fact, Richard went as far as saying it’s been a “night and day difference” between CoreXchange and past providers.
Most data centers offer half and full rack space for clients. Some offer private cages that allow their racks to be situated in a cage environment that is only accessible by that specific client.
Private cage space presents a number of advantages over typical shared space. Here are some of the advantages of private cage space:
CoreXchange provides a mesh of BGP routed Tier1 carriers directly to the customer. We also offer “carrier neutral colocation,” which means you have direct access to any carrier that is available through our data centers and within Equinix Dallas. These flexible options provide you the ability to select the carrier that is right for your solution while getting the best price due to the competitive market.
Setting Up the Servers
Peter Holden developed his first website at nine years old. At age 11, he signed up for his first dedicated server. It was a less-than-perfect experience and most of his subsequent experiences with hosting companies were equally as negative. After too many negative experiences with several hosting companies, he thought, "I can do this better". And he set out to create a hosting company that provided the ultimate customer experience – Hostwinds Web Hosting.
CoreXchange attended HostingCon`s "Raise Your Game” Conference, a future focused technology conference with a theme of `Disruption, Change, Innovation, Transformation and Opportunity`. The conference took place on June 17-19 in Austin, Texas and was well attended, with members from every facet of the hosting and shared services industry.
This month, CoreXchange, will be attending HostingCon 2013. HostingCon is an annual conference where the industry’s best and the brightest thought leaders, subject matter experts and professionals gather together to network, learn and grow.
This year HostingCon is being held in our home state of Texas, in one of North America’s top technology hubs, Austin, on June 17 – 19.
