CentralNic experiences immediate improvement in service moving to Qube

Friday, July 23rd, 2010

CentralNic, one of the world’s leading domain name registries, are in the process of developing their infrastructure to meet the level of required by ICANN (The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) for a new wave of generic Top Level Domains to be released and made available via CentralNic’s network of 2,000 registrars and 100,000 resellers. They needed a more reliable provider who had the right approach to meet their specific requirements and found Qube met their criteria.

CentralNic worked alongside Qube engineers to provide a seamless transition in migrating their services and have since benefited from a more responsive, attentive support team with the level of expertise they can rely on. They have also been able to benefit from the managed colocation offering that Qube provides. “We wouldn’t be able to be counted among the leading Registry Service Providers for new Top Level Domains if we didn’t have the right infrastructure in place, and Qube’s professionalism in managing the DC, racks, cabling and documentation have contributed to us maintaining this position.” – Gavin Brown CTO, CentralNic Global Registry Services.

Lawn Tennis Association uses Qube’s virtual platform to deliver live scores

Monday, July 5th, 2010

The Lawn Tennis Association approached Qube recently to request help with delivering live scores for the 2010 AEGON Tennis Championship events.

The LTA needed a dependable platform that could scale well under load and be easily upgraded to cope with unknown demand.
Qube’s VMware based virtual platform was identified as the best solution.

Using Qube’s virtual platform enabled several upgrades to be undertaken on the fly due to unprecedented demand which resulted in high network traffic.
With the addition of load balancing, it was simply a case of using VMware’s advanced online cloning tools to scale the service up.

The tournament was a success and we look forward to working with LTA again.
