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.

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.
