Diversity at last!

What a whirlwind couple of weeks it’s been! Relocating the office interstate, setting up colo’d servers in Sydney and Canberra, but it’s all settling down now! We’ve got a couple of big beefy compaq boxes in Sydney, running vmware with a bunch of virtual machines on them, as well as our primary DNS, and our secondary is sitting in canberra. Next step is to start migrating services currently hosted in the US down into Sydney, and decomission our US boxes.
Of course there’s some US services which will always stay there, such as email, as that just has WAY too much bandwidth overhead to be economical in aus, but the plan is to get all our webhosting servers migrated back here by the end of the year 🙂 Our colo provider likes the sound of that too 😉
And of course, I’d always rather be putting my hosting money into .au business rather than overseas!
