April 1st: Moving Server Facilities

pagelime-server-facility-april-fools

Dear PageLime users, we’ve recently looked at our cloud hosting energy bill, and after sifting through our accounting, determined that our main expense is air conditioning. This is unacceptable, and we decided to proactively move our entire hosting operation to a custom server facility to be built here. This move will literally cut our air conditioning costs in HALF, and allow us to offer better long-term service to our customers.

Obviously this move will take some time, so expect a few months worth of down time while we put together the expedition and explore possible approaches to what we determined to be the optimal location for the new facility. We’ve also been advised that this area does not have high speed internet access, but only AOL dial-up. While we don’t expect this to be an issue, we are building a backup cloud infrastructure, as outlined in the image below:

We’re commited to offering the best service on the market, and as such we will continue to find new ways to innovate and improve our web-app with great ideas like these. If anyone’s interested in joining our mountaineering expedition, please leave your contact details in the comments, and we’ll get in touch. Survival rate is very high… but iPhone 3G coverage is poor.

Happy April 1st.
