For the 2nd edition of our ongoing “Meet the Team” blog series we would like to introduce you to one of our Account Managers, Rob Wright.

As you can tell from the images below, Rob is harnessing his inner Kenny Powers these days.  Don’t judge a book by it’s cover on this one.  Just because Rob looks like La Flama Blanca he is far from being a selfish imbecile like the real KP.   Rob’s ever growing neck warmer is actually the result of a deal he made with his brother about a year ago where they both agreed to grow there hair out for the “Locks of Love” foundation.  In the next few weeks Rob will but cutting his party in the back  and be back to all business as he donates his hair to an inflicted child.  Rob has endured a year of ribbing for the benefit of someone else and for that we love him.

Rob has worked in the Hivelocity Sales Department for just over 5 years and has proven to be one of our best Account Manager’s.  Rob is always eager to please and goes out of his way to make sure his customers are well taken care of.  From proactive “just saying hi and making sure all is well” emails and phone calls to customers, to sitting in manager’s meetings with ideas on how to improve the Hivelocity Experience, Rob always wants to ensure his customers are loving Hivelocity.

When Rob is not at the data center taking care of business, you can likely find him rooting for or reading about Florida Gators and Tampa Bay Buc football.  Rob is not only a graduate from the University of Florida but a huge football fan.  Since there are many alumni of the Florida State University, University of South Florida and Penn State here, this time of year is always fun, if not a bit bristly around here.  So here you go Rob, “Go Gators, Get Up & Go!”  Or as those of us who did not attend the University of Florida like to say, “Go Gators, get up and go….seriously please leave, you’re quite obnoxious.”

Why AMD EPYC?

At Hivelocity, we’re not one to play favorites with hardware. While our technicians have their individual preferences, as a whole, we know the best solutions are the ones that best fit the needs of our clients. That said, there is certainly value in the comparative metric tests available through SPEC …

Rapid Restore

Backup your entire server’s data every night and have access to 5 days of rolling restore points.  Restore your server’s data, OS and configuration any time you need it.

Our Rapid Restore service saves the day during accidental data loss, hardware failures and virus contraction. Simply pick your recovery point and restore the data from that day. 

DDoS Protection

While our competitors may advertise DDoS protection, most often, they are merely implementing easily evaded router rules or simply black-holing targeted servers. They consider this “DDoS protecting their network.” However, neither of these solutions should give comfort to any online business. Should your site be attacked, chances are likely both of these options will end with your server being taken offline. At Hivelocity, we take the responsibility of keeping your servers online very seriously. For this reason, we offer two very serious forms of DDoS protection.

FREE

Every solution we provide includes our Filtering Edge of Network System (FENS). FENS is a series of proprietary systems that proactively monitors and protects the entire Hivelocity Network from most common Denial of Service (DOS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.

$15/MONTH PER SERVER

For an extra fee, you can enhance your server’s protection further with the addition of our Server Defense System. Our Server Defense System sits in front of your server, inspecting inbound data and looking for malicious traffic. The moment an attack is detected, it instantly begins scrubbing each data packet. Hivelocity’s Server Defense System delivers business continuity even in the face of massive and complex attacks.

Our Server Defense System is like adding an alarm and armed guard to your business, alerting you to and destroying anything attempting to jump that fence. Our Server Defense System utilizes internally developed proprietary systems in addition to Corero’s Threat Defense Smartwalls for data packet scrubbing. Each of our data centers is a scrubbing center with Corero Smartwalls on-premise, allowing us to provide on-prem zero-lag data scrubbing.

SSL Certificates

The security of your online commerce and protecting your customers’ data is as important to us as it is to you. When your customers see the green bar, they will know their connection to you is protected. We offer single domain, multi-domain, and wild-card certificates.

We offer industry leading 128-bit encryption certificates, allowing you to conduct e-commerce with complete security. Inspire confidence in your customers by displaying any number of seals and indicators certifying that your site is secure.

Load Balancing

Adding this service to two servers with identical content will allow you to distribute your load evenly across your hardware. Don’t lose business because you couldn’t handle the demand. Load balance and handle your biggest resource spikes with ease.

Firewalls

Stop attacks, prevent unauthorized access, and achieve regulatory compliance. Our Juniper hardware firewalls offload the work so your server never has to consume resources protecting itself from malicious traffic. A single firewall can be used to protect multiple servers.

Cloud Storage

Cloud storage offers users redundancy and easy accessibility, ensuring your data remains secure and readily available. Scale to as much as you need for only a 20¢/GB.

Cloud Storage is distributed and replicated across many servers, protecting your data from hardware failure. Highly scalable, it can handle thousands of client connections via TCP/IP. Connect to your virtual drive with SFTP, FTP, and SSHMount and in the future NFS and AFP. Cloud Storage is based on a stackable design which is upgradeable up to 2TB per instance.
