Every single one of our staff is a geek. We are customer focused sysadmins. We have no pushy suit-and-tie sales people. We work hard to provide great service. And we think our reputation for great support reflects that.
One of the original VPS providers (back in the 'user mode linux' days).
One of the first to offer Xen based VPSs.
Deloitte have named us one of the Asia Pacific region's fastest growing tech companies 3 years running.
Customers in over 90 countries (primarily the US, Australasia, and the UK).
We now have a Debian 8 image available for
new VM setups
There is a 64 bit image, and we have not done a 32 bit image. Most customers
are now ordering 64 bit distros. And some distros only come in a 64 bit flavor,
e.g. Centos 7.
Debian 8 is also an option for regular dedicated server setups.
page you can now select the 4.0 kernel for your VM. Includes: OverlayFS,
carries on with support required for Docker and SELinux, lots of new nf/eb
table options, openvswitch, nfs4 support and too many other new kernel
tweaks to mention. Plus newer, fresher kernel code with lots of fixes to
bugs (which likely are not affecting you).
We have only produced a 64 bit kernel this time around.
That should be fine even for 32 bit distros.
Dallas is our busiest location. We have many, many cabinets there filled with
wonderfully shiny servers (all black, as befits our Kiwi origins). That setup
has grown somewhat organically since 2005. Our core networking wiring was
starting to be a little scary. And network capacity (ports and bandwidth was
staring to be an issue).
So for our 10th year in Dallas we opted to rebuild our network from scratch.
Get new, faster networking gear; tidily re-cable everything with fiber;
simplify things as much as possible; and increase our uplink capacity.
Apache is probably the most common web service our customers use.
It is an amazingly powerful and mature tool for serving all your website needs.
And is very easy to get up and running with
Our team is often asked to tune apache to run more smoothly, more quickly, and more reliably.
With a few simple server side tweaks you can easily polish your server
till it is ready for ‘production’ use of your website.
As part of our mission to wipe the
(CVE-2015-0235) from our customers servers we have created 'deghost'.
Deghost is a cross-distro script to determine the vulnerability of a libc
library on a server and then patch that where possible.
We are excited to announce that we now offer servers in Frankfurt, Germany.
This will be a great for users wanting a server central to the EU,
and complements the plans we already offer in London.
You can see more information about the data center at
Intel have just released their next generation dual proc Haswell-EP-based servers.
We ordered a batch from our trusty systems integrator.
And this morning the servers arrived at our Dallas data center loading dock!
Those same servers are now available now on our dedicated server
We’re happy to announce the availability of
Docker support on our VPS installations.
In this blog post, we aim to introduce you to Docker one of
the most exciting and powerful open-source projects that has sprung up in the recent
In a nutshell, Docker offers you the tools to package everything that forms an
application, allowing you to deploy the application effortless across systems and
machines both virtual and physical.
Hot on the heels of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 release the Centos team have put out Centos 7
and now we are happy to offer a Centos 7 VM image on our control panel.
You can select it on new installs and also on re-installs.
This has been a long awaited update due to a few new features, and changes which we have wanted/needed.
One thing i will say about perth, it gets fairly hot!
The first Monday was about 36C outside,
which is pretty bad when you are walking long distance between buildings with a laptop on your back
(or in my case, a large 17" laprock!)
Recently i started talking to an amazing bunch of people, who had proposed,
and been accepted to host the next Linux.conf.au in Auckland, New Zealand.
