The Tampa Bay Technology Forum held their annual industry awards gala last week at Busch Gardens where over 150 companies competed for just 12 awards.  With everyone eager to hear their name    Hivelocity was let off the hook early, however, with their taking home of the night’s first award which recognizes one company for Excellence in Service.  This award acknowledges one Tampa Bay organization committed to advancing the region’s technology community while demonstrating excellence in quality and innovation.  “We are so proud of our team and the effort they put in every day to help us achieve this accolade.  We are also very honored to have won considering the great companies we were up against,” said Steve Eschweiler, who accepted the award for Hivelocity Friday night. 

Hivelocity has provided its customers with 100% network and power uptime since the day they opened their TPA1 data center in 2012.  When you consider that most data centers aim for 99.9% uptime and 99.999% (aka five nines) is considered elite, maintaining 100% year after year is an impressive feat and undoubtedly qualifies for excellence in service.   “From the day we started our company, 15 years ago in a basement, our core philosophy has been to always consider the customer’s perspective first.  Initially, this philosophy was designed to help us improve the way we interacted and interfaced with our customers.  Over the years, however,  it has become the philosophy that directs our company’s entire culture, who we hire, the tools we develop, how we sell our products and ultimately how we achieve 100% uptime,” says Eschweiler.  

Hivelocity owns and operates over 60,000 square feet of data center space where it provides dedicated servers, colocation and cloud hosting solutions to customers from over 130 countries.  Hivelocity just completed the build out of their brand new TPA2 data center allowing them to accommodate 10,000 new servers and 250 server cabinets in the region.  Each of Hivelocity’s facilities is manned 24/7 with Systems Administrators and Engineers ready and able to assist customers with any of their needs.  Services are available from Hivelocity in Tampa, Miami, Atlanta and Los Angeles.  For more information about Hivelocity you can visit them at https://hivelocity.net.

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.
