Server relocation Friday October 25th at 6:00PM

We will be relocating our servers on Friday, October 25th starting at 6:00pm, to a new data centre. The move will take approximately 3 hours. We would prefer to make the move in the middle of the night, but there are various other parties involved in coordinating this.

It's important to note that we are not outsourcing anything. It's all the same hardware and network equipment, etc. We're just moving away from having it in the same location as our office.

Although we already have generator backed battery backup systems in case of a power outage, video monitoring, etc. the new facility goes a whole lot further with a specially designed building and higher end equipment.

Some key (and cool!) points about the new facility:

  • Designed to withstand a 9.5 magnitude earthquake
  • Designed to withstand hurricane force winds up to 135km/h
  • Advanced camera surveillance system constantly observing the building inside and out
  • Access via secure proximity cards and biometric readers
  • Waterless clean agent fire suppression – CO2 and Novec 1230
  • Pre-actioned, vacuum charged sprinkler system, means no chance of accidental damage caused from pipes leaking or rupturing
  • Multiple UPS units providing clean, continuous power (battery back-up)
  • Multiple onsite diesel back-up generators
  • Transport Canada certified rooftop heliport in the event roads are impassable

For 20+ years we've kept our server room in the same location as our offices, so this is a bit of a change for us. But it's necessary as we continue to grow, and allows us to provide a better quality service overall.

move 0 Sounds as if you have secured space at Bunker Rd site, although it is still in the process of being built and is not located on the island; it is the premier safe site for BC and have often wondered why you haven't moved your data centre off island. Thanks for the update.

Good move! 1 Sounds like things are ticking along rather well for you folks... pretty soon you'll have to get involved in some international conspiracy just to keep it interesting. ;)

Well done 0 Running a business is never easy, and over the years you have weathered many a challenge. This new advancement sounds like the kind of investment that will bring long term merit and ever more client base. Congratulations to all the team. Henry Landry
