CorelloHosting Hurricane Irma Special Weather Statement

CorelloHosting Hurricane Irma Special Weather Statement

CorelloHosting & CorelloNetworks Cable and Broadband is currently monitoring Hurricane Irma, and we are beginning preparations in order to minimize service disruptions to our customers in the event that this storm affects our service areas. Irma is forecasted to impact the continental United States in south Florida late this weekend, however, the exact track is very likely to change so we will continue to prepare in all our Southeast, and mid-Atlantic Datacenters, and closely monitor this dangerous storm. We are taking the following steps to minimize any potential service interruptions:

  1. Portable and backup generators are being secured in coastal areas, and being topped off with fuel supplies.
  2. Fuel, clean up equipment, and restoration supplies are beginning to be stockpiled.
  3. Additional field resources are on standby to conduct post-storm damage assessments and quickly begin restoration activities.
  4. Critical systems and infrastructure are being secured to withstand potential water and hurricane force wind damage in flood prone areas.

Customers can find important information and tips to prepare for a major storm by visiting the NOAA.gov website, by clicking here.

What to expect following a major storm: 

In the event of a power outage or damage to our cable lines, high-speed data, video, and phone service may be interrupted. Immediately following the storm, we will have resources that will assess all of our cable lines, and begin work to restore services as quickly as possible.

Please note that following the storm, there may be instances where CorelloNetworks Cable & Broadband cable systems are functioning, however, customers could be without service due to commercial power outages. Please check with your local power company for electrical outages.

Customers should never attempt to climb poles or attempt repairs of downed cable lines as they risk severe injury or death, particularly since our cable lines often accompany electrical lines which carry high voltage. 

To contact us with additional questions, check outage status, or to report a downed line, customers can visit our website, download our CorelloConnect Mobile Care application from the Apple or Google Play Store, or call us via normal customer service numbers or via the emergency numbers provided within the Connect Mobile Care App

We will continue to provide periodic updates over the next few days, and our thoughts are with the communities that may be impacted by this storm.

Dedicated Server / Co-Location / VOIP/ VPS Servers / & Shared Hosting Customers

As you may have heard, Hurricane Irma is currently on track to affect Florida this weekend. As with all storms, CorelloHosting, Inc. has been working diligently to prepare ourselves for the heavy rains and the wind that a storm of this size entails.

Due to this ongoing situation, please request non-critical updates and report current issues before 9/9/17 or after 9/12/17. During this time, if you believe your server is inaccessible, read up on how our IPMI service may be able to help.

We will be staffed and available during the storm to handle any potential issues that arise, and have tested and verified all of our emergency infrastructures to ensure all services remain up and available. We have also made the requisite staffing changes to ensure that our support remains uninterrupted and available for all clients.

Depending on the severity of the storm, we may disable our phone systems to focus our support staff on tickets and live chats, but if we do so, such a change would be posted on all of our social media accounts, and a recording stating the reason placed on the phone system itself. In addition, while we will have staff available during the storm, priority will be placed on existing service requests and procedures, and any new orders/modifications may be delayed until after the storm has passed.

 

Miami Data Center Physical Infrastructure

CorelloHosting’s Miami enterprise data center CoreX-NOC features a building-within-a-building data center design which was created with Florida’s unique climate conditions in mind. The windowless, single-story building features concrete masonry perimeter walls powerful enough to withstand practically any storm. Both this data center and our local sales & management office will remain manned 24/7.

Two diesel generators, 500KW Caterpillar and 1250KW Katolight, are also on location in the unlikely event of complete power loss. These impressive generators hold up to 2700 gallons of diesel fuel so your server will stay online regardless.

Power Infrastructure Includes:

  • 1 X 500KW Caterpillar Diesel Generator
  • 1 X 1250KW Katolight Diesel Generator
  • 1 X 500KVA Powerware 9315 UPS
  • 1 X 480KVA Powerware 9390 UPS in a parallel N+1 configuration
  • 5 X Battery Strings (providing 15 minutes of runtime at full load)
  • 2,700 Gallons of fuel capacity for generators

We thank you for your patience and understanding during this weather event and hope that you have a great rest of your week.

Sincerely,
CorelloNetworks Customer Service

Why the Location of Your Dedicated Server’s Data Network Matters

Why the Location of Your Dedicated Server’s Data Network Matters

When you’re shopping around for hosting—whether it’s a website, blog, eCommerce store, or even for gaming—there’s no denying the fact that speed matters. However, what many people fail to realize as they shop for a dedicated server is that the specific location of the hosting company’s data centers can have a direct impact on their server speed. At CorelloHosting, we have eleven prime data center locations in

  •  Philadelphia, PA
  •  New York, NY
  •  Miami, FL
  •  Los Angeles, CA
  •  Chicago, IL
  •  Phoenix, AZ
  •  Atlanta, GA
  •  Washington, DC
  •  Singapore, Asia
  •  Tokyo, Japan
  •  London, United Kingdom

this allows us to provide low latency to several locations worldwide and a better overall experience, no matter what you’re using our hosting for.

Understanding Location and Latency

So how does location affect latency, and what, exactly, does latency have to do with speed? For starters, latency essentially refers to the amount of lag time that takes place between when you initiate a request for data transfer and when the transfer actually occurs. For example, this is the amount of time that it takes between when you click on a link on your website and when the linked page actually loads. In the time in between, the request is being transferred to the data center at which your dedicated server is hosted.

The farther away your data center is from where your users are located, the higher the latency you’re likely to have. Lower latency will result in faster processing times, which can mean a number of things depending on how you’re using your hosting. For example, if you’re using your dedicated hosting for gaming, low latency will mean less lagging, faster overall game play, and better performance. For website owners, lower latency means users will have an easier time navigating your site. They won’t be frustrated with slow page loading times, which will make them more likely to revisit your site in the future or less likely to leave during their initial visit.

As you can see, low latency is important and the best way to ensure low latency (aside from choosing a great hosting company) is to make sure your data centers are centrally located.

CorelloHosting’s Prime Data Center Locations

At CorelloHosting, we have three excellent data center locations in

  •  Philadelphia, PA
  •  New York, NY
  •  Miami, FL
  •  Los Angeles, CA
  •  Chicago, IL
  •  Phoenix, AZ
  •  Atlanta, GA
  •  Washington, DC
  •  Singapore, Asia
  •  Tokyo, Japan
  •  London, United Kingdom

These are prime locations for both local (North America) and global users (South America, Asia, and Pacific). Not to mention, our data centers have a number of other features that can help to increase speeds and benefit you and your users. This includes 100% uptime service level agreements for cooling and power, enhanced security at each data center location (including round-the-clock security), and climate control redundancies. We are also proud to include the best technical support 24 hours a day, seven days a week to our customers with hosting in either location.

If there was ever any question as to the importance of location when it comes to your hosting data center, hopefully, that has been cleared up here. To find out more about our data center locations or for help in selecting the dedicated server that is right for you, contact CorelloHosting today.

5 Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Dedicated Server

So, you’ve decided that it’s time to upgrade from your web-hosting package to a dedicated server as a means of making your life easier and your hosting more reliable. Still, before you select a hosting package, there are some important questions you’ll want to ask. Your answers to these questions will help guide you toward making the right decision when it comes to your hosting purchase.

server-700x200

 

What Do I Need a Dedicated Server For?

Start by answering the most basic question: What will you be using your server for? Typically, most people will need dedicated hosting for one of two reasons. They either need a reliable server host for a business website, or they’re into online gaming and have decided to purchase a dedicated hosting package for their gaming needs.

How Much Bandwidth Do I Need?

Because hosting packages can vary in terms of their bandwidth, you’ll also want to consider how much you need. If you’re hardcore into gaming, then there’s a good chance you’ll need more bandwidth than somebody who is hosting a small personal site. Most of our packages come with 10TB of bandwidth, but if you anticipate that may not be enough, we recommend one of our storage servers, which includes unmetered bandwidth for your added peace of mind.

What Type of Processor and Memory Do I Need?

Another important question to answer is that of how much memory and what kind of processor speeds you’ll need. These factors can impact the speed, which means faster page loading times for your business website and lower latency for your online gaming. Our basic hosting packages start at 8GB of DDR3 memory and a 4 x 1.8 GHz processor. If you’re not sure what you need, we can help.

Do I Need a Managed or Unmanaged Server?

Most people making the switch to a dedicated server will be fine starting out with an unmanaged server. However, if your business takes off or you simply don’t have the time to manage your own, you may eventually want to consider switching to a managed server. This allows you to sit back and relax while trained professionals monitor and manage your server remotely.

How Might My Hosting Needs Change in the Future?

Finally, don’t forget to consider how your hosting needs may change in the future. Of course, this can be difficult to anticipate now, but it’s important to find a hosting company that will work with you in terms of upgrading or downgrading your hosting package as needed. The last thing you want is to be stuck with a hosting package that isn’t working for you.

Now that you have a better idea of what to consider before choosing a dedicated server option, you’ll be able to reach the right decision. If you need any help along the way, be sure to contact the CorelloHosting team for assistance in choosing the hosting option that suits your needs.

Dedicated Server Security: 4 Steps for Protecting Your Data

Whether you already have a dedicated server or are thinking about utilizing one for your business or personal needs, security should be your top priority. Dedicated server providers make it easier than ever for you to keep your data and information safe by including features such as DDoS protection and other options. Still, you can take some additional steps to increase security for your dedicated server and protect your data.

Maintain Your Databases

Taking the time to make sure your databases are well maintained and updated as needed is important, regardless of what anybody may tell you. Specifically, you should make sure that your databases are protected against SQL injection. You may also want to delete any unneeded data and cut back on the access that others have to said database. This is especially important if you collect any sensitive information from customers on your site (such as payment information). This is also where certain database administration tools could be helpful.

Update Software Regularly

One of the biggest mistakes you can make when it comes to dedicated server security is in failing to keep your software updated. When you use outdated software, it likely doesn’t have the security updates, patches and other protections that you need to keep your information safe. When you receive an alert that a new version of software is available on your dedicated server, it’s in your best interest to go ahead and install it right away. If you put it off, there’s a chance that you’ll forget about it altogether, thus putting your security at risk. Using CorelloHosting’s security vulnerabilities scanner is one way to stay updated on any outstanding updates.

Keep Backups of Data

Nobody ever anticipates a security breach or attack causing them to lose important data, but it happens every single day to large and small businesses alike. Don’t take any chances in this regard — make sure that you set up regular data backups for your dedicated server. This way, important data can be saved as a copy in another location, and, in the event of an attack or security compromise, you will at least be able to retrieve that data rather than losing it altogether.

Establish a Chain of Command

Finally, now is also a good time to establish a chain of command within your business and have protocols in place when it comes to handling a data breach or other type of security risk. Specifically, you should know whom to contact, how to reset passwords, and what other steps need to be followed. You may also want to have somebody to prepare a statement for customers if any of their data is compromised.

By following these steps, you can keep your dedicated server as secure as possible. Of course, if you don’t have the time for this in your busy schedule, consider upgrading to a CorelloHosting managed hosting option so you have a team of professionals to handle these aspects for you. Contact our team today to get started.
