Starting this week, we will begin to migrate our Shared, Reseller and VPS Hosting customers from our current infrastructure to our new infrastructure in Timaru. There should be under 5 minutes of total downtime of your website during this process however it’s important that no modifications to your website are performed during the migration. Affected customers will be contacted via email with more in-depth information this week.
You may ask why are we migrating to new infrastructure when our current one is sufficient, I’d like to highlight some points.
Vetta owned & operated
Currently, we are in a situation of renting or leasing our servers and renting space in datacenters to store these servers. With our new infrastructure, all hardware and the infrastructure is owned by Vetta Technologies. This gives us greater flexibility to better compete with the rapidly evolving hosting market.
Not only are our servers now owned, but they are far superior in system specifications. Our new web hosting servers are based on a minimum setup of Intel i5 Ivy Bridge processors with 16GB of high-performance RAM. This means that your websites will render faster on new hardware and performance will be far greater.
Our network has been built by us from the ground up, with our main focuses being speed and security. Speeds from within our network are all under 1ms with gigabit connectivity and Cat6 cabling throughout.
Faster Response Times
When critical problems arise, currently a datacenter technician is needed to be called and arrangements made before work is done. With our network now located from within our office, our technicians can be on-site within 10 minutes (if outside business hours), ready to solve the issue as soon as the server is in front of them.
