In January 2007 we undertook our trans-atlantic migration, the single biggest, and most important, business decision we've ever taken. The plan was to migrate all of our hosting plans from rented US servers to our own UK servers. We took out a cabinet at The Bunker and purchased our own router, firewall, switch and servers and started.
It was a rougher ride than we'd have hoped for but our loyal clients stood by us and when the dust had settled they were well rewarded. Performance was markedly improved, having no trans–atlantic round trip delay, and with us in direct control of every aspect of our operation, from our internet connectivity all the way up to the software that ran on top of the servers, and everything in between, we were able to provide them with an exceptional level of service, all the while backed by UK support.
