The cornerstone for long life, high performance and reliability of dedicated servers in our data center is the top quality of server components. In recent days, we have updated our Supermicro server portfolio, whose rotating disks are also used in the CERN.
The long-awaited news is here – price of energy for the whole year 2024 are finally known and because energy is the main variable of all colocation services, we have great news for you - a significant reduction of price. The basic server colocation service is now available from € 27,89 per month and we provide energy for the rack hosting service with the power input calculated according to the real consumption at the final price for € 0.24/kWh.
Our data center network administrators have recently been solving problems our customers who are unable to connect to the remote desktop of their server via TCP port 3389. Analysis of their network traffic is following after each client report and in all cases an abnormal number of connections to a source from the Russian Federation has been detected. Unfortunately, this is not a joke, but a fact.
The access to our data center will be limited from Friday August 25 to Sunday, August 27, 2023. The reason of this limitation is a scheduled reconstruction of foyer - enter room.
Another good news – another improvement. In the past few days, we have installed the most modern Conteg rack cabinet in our oldest server room S1 with a base of 800x1000 mm and the possibility to hold up to 48U equipment. The S1 server room is primarily designed for server colocation and serverfarm colocation services. Leaving aside the unusually large size, what makes this rack special is the placement of two ePDUs from two different UPS circuits.
For several years we have been looking for a technology that would make our data center operation more efficient, reduce its energy consumption and ultimately help the environment. After a thorough analysis, we decided to install a Freecooling system. And now we will present the first results to you.
It is not so long, what we have added the first 25 Gbps port to our network thanks to Juniper EX4650 switches. As we announced, our connection to the NIX network has been upgraded. And now we have completed the other step - the interconnection between the CEColo and our data center with a new optic fiber circuit, which will be lighted on 100 Gbps speed, soon.
