Our data centers in Tampa, Los Angeles and Atlanta are all connected to one another via numerous and diverse 10Gbps waves. What this means is that all of our data centers peer with each other and share transit providers. With that said, each data center is designed to stand on it own network should their ever be a disruption in that interconnectivity.
In Los Angeles we have NTT, Cogent, Comcast and Hurricane Electric with Level 3 coming very soon.
I feel like we sincerely missed out on your presence elsewhere, a place where I previously hung out that was more about low price limits. You seem cool as shit.
Hivelocity is one of those brand I’ve always perceived as being about the customers that need some hand holding or have some really important things hosted that are worth much dollars, that they’d be willing to pay for a fully staffed company that they could guarantee would be there in a crunch. Am I far off?
That said, you guys actually have some deals that are right in line with current budget server trends here:
Here’s what I’m seeing that catches my eye:
20TB BW (now that I know you’ve got Comcast in the mix, hot damn)
Instant provision (maybe some verification for new accounts?)
That one’s out of stock and rightfully so, but if you guys are running a fully staffed “not budget” company and you’re pushing those as a foot in the door… I think you might be seeing some success from here as the community grows.
Thanks Jarland. I hope I am able to contribute to the community in a positive way. If you ever attend any of the WebHostingDays, Data Center World or Cloud Transformation events we can grab a beer next time.
In regards to Hivelocity, while this may sound self-serving, we truly strive to be exceptional. Our philosophy has always been to run our company considering the customer first in everything we do. We want every interaction to end with the customer saying “damn, that was a really good experience. I am going to go tell my buddy about Hivelocity.” Whether we accomplish that or not is up to you guys, but I can tell you that is our goal. Part of that is offering 24/7/365 on-prem support available via live chat, phone and ticket. The Hivelocity Team currently consists of about 75 people with a few more positions to be filled Q1. We try to keep our pricing as low as we can while being able to maintain a high level of service and reliability. Lastly, we have customers in over 130 countries in large part because of the make up of our network and its ability to perform globally.
Now about the server you like. I can likely track one of those down for you. Come to Live Chat and give us a “HOSTBALLS”…and then say, “Steve told me to come by and you would hook me up.” The sales guy will then come over to my office and say “what the f is this guy talking about” and I will bring him up to speed.
Cool stuff is always in USA. We don’t have anything like that in Portugal, other than websummit, and it’s hell expensive. Tickets are really expensive. Non sense considering our minimum salary of around 580 Euros… >.<
Note: I was a Hivelocity customer long time ago, I’m not even sure you guys still have my account, but you guys changed a lot, I’ve seen your progress and damn, it’s admirable.
