    Rapidswitch has been acquisited

    Rapidswitch, one of the largest colocation\dedi provider at BlueSquare (ok, over the road) has been bought out by iomart group, the group ownes EasySpace, for £4.3M cash on completion with a further £0.95M payable on 31st March 2010. Well done Ed Butler and Paul Tacey-Green!! Not bad for 10 years work!!
    Full story : News from RapidSwitch

    In other news Chris Wilkie @ NetrinoUK annoucent an upgrade of the core router from 1GB to 10gb. It just proves the IT section isn't doing too bad at the moment, credit what?

    Dear Clients

    We are performing some network improvement work this weekend on our core routing. The work involves replacing the supervisor modules in our edge routers, and installing 10GBit/sec line cards. This work will enable us to increase our upstream connections by 10 times compared to the current levels.

    Due to the redundant nature of our network we do not expect any downtime to be experienced. However, as with any work of this nature being performed such critical systems, we consider Saturday afternoon to be an ‘at risk’ period where there is a small possibility that some services may be unavailable for short periods of time.

    We are expecting to perform the work between 1pm and 5pm on Saturday 9th June. Any urgent service announcements will be posted on our Portal at https://portal.netrino.co.uk.

    Should you have any questions in relation to this please do not hesitate to get in touch.

    Regards, Chris
