We’re proud to announce the launch of our dedicated servers in Canada! Customers now have the option to host their servers in our newest flagship data center in Toronto – http://www.serverbeachhosting.ca/
Sandals, shorts and Hawaiian shirts. Add caffeine, more Geeks, and a lot of geek-speak and you’ve got what we call a “Beacher”. That is how our days begin here at ServerBeach.
ServerBeach is growing and hiring. Every employee contributes directly to our results. As such, we are picky about who we select. Our atmosphere is fun, but very challenging, hard working, but very educational. We would say the standard ‘work hard, play hard’ but at the Beach it’s difficult to see the difference. If you enjoy what you do, it never feels like work.
Oh! I almost forgot to mention that every employee gets a free server, too. Free snacks, breakfast tacos, Friday barbecues, and Foosball tournaments are also a bonus.
Are you interested in joining one of the top 5 Industry leaders in the world? Are you a Geek and damn proud of it? If so, we want to speak to you!

ServerBeach and CloudOne, powered by EMC Atmos
When we talk to customers or attend conferences representing ServerBeach or PEER 1 Hosting, the most common question asked is, “When are you going to release Cloud-based services?” Sometimes we’re asked about storage offerings like Amazon’s S3, or compute offerings like EC2, and while the definition of “cloud” varies, the idea of highly available and scalable services is something we have been working on. PEER 1 Hosting is committed to providing solutions using best-of-breed partners to address these needs.
A few months ago, we announced that we have partnered with EMC to develop a Cloud Storage offering based on their Atmos solution and we’re happy to provide you with an update on this. We are currently in beta and plan to launch the first Cloud Service, called CloudOne Storage, powered by EMC Atmos, in the coming weeks.
What does this mean to you?
In preparation for this product launch, we will be adding a “Cloud Services” tab in the MyPeer1.com customer portal. The tab is a preview of how this section will look and provide links to additional documentation. Over the next few weeks, we will be filling the menu links and preparing for the launch.
Why are we showing this tab to you now?
We are revealing this change to the portal in advance of the product launch to solicit feedback from you. There will be a section in the forums soon that will give you the opportunity to tell us what you like and what you dislike.
Be sure to keep an eye out for more updates and information regarding CloudOne Storage. Questions? Please e-mail: adam[at]serverbeach.com

We’ve just returned home from another amazing BlogWorld & New Media Expo in Las Vegas. ServerBeach was one of the early adopters of BlogWorld, seeing the potential that it had to allow us to connect with the Blogging communities and businesses. From the first years attendance and each year after, we’ve made sure to be there and listen to what these communities are doing and searching for to further their success. We also have the opportunity to meet many of our customers who attend, which is always a great experience!
This years expo was absolutely amazing with over 280 speakers that included Guy Kawasaki, Chris Brogan, Leo Laporte, and so many other great people (you can view the full speaker list with video’s here).
We’re very proud to be a part of BlogWorld each year, connecting and building relationships with the attendees, and we’re looking forward to doing our part to help them succeed. A big thank-you to Patti and others who work so hard to make each years event a complete success.

On September 9, 2009 PEER 1 and ServerBeach celebrated the company’s 10 year anniversary worldwide that includes 360 employees in 12 offices around the world. What an amazing day this was. The company was divided into two teams, “Orange” and “Lime” and played a series of 10 games over a 24 hour duration and prizes were given. At the end of the day, PEER 1′s legendary Beer O’Clock began.
Our employee spirit is incredible. Fabio Banducci, President and CEO of PEER 1 says,
“Ten years is a long time in hosting and our anniversary celebration is a testament to the strength of our business. Investing in leading-edge technology to support our IT infrastructure, and investing in our people to deliver remarkable customer support are integral to our success. I congratulate our customers in the ongoing success of their businesses which PEER 1 is proud to support and I applaud the talent and dedication of our personnel around the world.”
To take this celebration one-step further, 4 of our employees took it upon themselves to show their pride and spirit by getting company tattoos which we blogged about in an earlier post, including a video of them getting these tattoos.
