Qube’s Zurich facility proving to be popular

Monday, June 28th, 2010

We have had a lot of interest recently in our Zurich hosting facility from clients needing a more central location on Europe as well as those wanting a Disaster Recovery (DR) site.

Switzerland in particular offers several unique advantages for both of these hosting requirements.
It is well known for it’s neutrality, political and economic stability, large financial services industry and lower tax rates than most other European countries.
It also offers a very high level of privacy, data protection and confidentiality. Zurich is very well connected, has many international links to the large European economies surrounding the country and the latency is only 20ms to London.

All of these factors really do make sense when you are considering a hosting location in Europe.

We are undertaking a project to upgrade the site this summer and will be leasing more space in this facility. As a result, we will be able to offer a full suite of services including Managed Cloud Servers in this sought after data centre location.

Qube’s anycast DNS platform a success

Friday, June 11th, 2010

Qube’s migration to the new anycast DNS system has been a success with several clients making the transition already.
The new system provides resilience by spreading several DNS nodes over Qube’s four data centre locations in London, New York and Zurich.

BGP anycast technology ensures that clients are directed to the closest server which ensures faster queries and improved performance. Speak to us about migrating your hosted DNS.

Qube Raised Funds for the Lennox Children’s Cancer Fund

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010
We received a phone call with a kind request whether we want to take part in raising money for kid’s summer holidays and general charity running, without even thinking twice we said YES. The next day the pack with info arrived and we simply could not say NO. During the week we managed to raise £69.00 and reward everyone with a piece of home baked treat. We are very happy that we could help this struggling charity to find crucial funds. I am sure every little helps and even the £69.00 made a significant difference.
