Hivelocity Announces New Sandy Bridge Server Line

July 27, 2011 by · Comments Off on Hivelocity Announces New Sandy Bridge Server Line 

Hosting ServicesTampa FL – Hivelocity Hosting  announced this week they are introducing a new line of i5 Sandy Bridge dedicated servers.   The Intel i5 processor will be replacing the Core2Quad, which currently serves as the introductory line of servers Hivelocity offers.  As Core2Quads slowly fade away with end-of-life approaching, the quad-core i5’s will slide right into that lower pricing segment.

“We have worked with Supermicro to put together a very solid system at a really good price.  The end result is our customers get new Sandy Bridge servers that offer significantly more power than the older Core2Quads for about the same price they have paid for lesser systems in the past,” comments Hivelocity GM Steve Eschweiler.  “Our customers have given our E3-1230 Xeon Sandy Bridge server rave reviews  for the last few months and we anticipate the introduction of another Sandy Bridge system in the lower price spectrum to be just as popular, if not more.  Our customers love a powerful server and they love saving money even more, so the i5 should be a home run for everyone.”

Codero Announces New Dashboard and Other Customer Portal Enhancements

July 26, 2011 by · Comments Off on Codero Announces New Dashboard and Other Customer Portal Enhancements 

Hosting ServicesLenexa, Kan. – Doing business with Codero is easier than ever thanks to enhancements the company made to its online portal including a new and improved dashboard. The provider of optimized infrastructure created the Codero Server Portal v2 to be a one-stop place for customers to manage their hosting accounts and give them exclusive access to information related to Codero’s products and services. The tool is still receiving positive feedback from customers six months after its release and Codero continues to refine it to make it even better.

Codero first revamped its global customer portal in November, 2010 to enhance the customer experience. Over the last few months, the Codero Development team listened to customer suggestions and relied upon more feedback to make even more improvements. Below is a highlight of some of the major changes just released:

Improved Dashboard. The new dashboard redesign increases overall usability, design and navigation. It makes it easier to find messages, tickets, invoices and services to manage Codero accounts from a single web page. Visibility to bandwidth usage is even more immediate and a Twitter feed has been included.

New SMS Service Notifications. Customers can sign up with the new SMS service to receive service notifications in the event of an emergency. There are now three methods to receive emergency alerts: SMS, email or instant messenger. Customers can also follow @CODERONOC for service-related Codero messages.

Revamped Payment Method. Managing payment options has been streamlined for simplicity with more functionality. The functionality to edit existing payment methods and delete outdated payment information is now available.

DNS Management Improvements. The entire DNS Management section was rewritten to provide bulk modifications of DNS records through the online portal.   We have also extended the functionality to provide support for long data records, such as Domain Keys, and IPv6 in preparation for the IPv6 roll out at Codero.

Nicholas Gaugler, Vice President of Development and Engineering at Codero, said, “Customer experience is what drives Codero to continually improve not only Server Portal v2, but every piece of software we develop and integrate. We want to encourage engagement so we can personally help our customers succeed with their hosting solutions. We will continue to deliver additional features and functional enhancements to Server Portal v2 to make it even more valuable for Codero customers.”

In the coming months, Codero will have new functionality on the service page. The enhancement will give customers the ability to see available upgrades and downgrades to their existing packages and schedule those changes, during a maintenance window of their choice, directly from Server Portal v2.
