Hosting Providers, We Challenge You to a Race


PEER 1 President, Fabio Banducci

As many of you know, our parent company PEER 1 participated in the 24 Hours of Lemons endurance race in Kershaw, South Carolina last year. We will be participating in this event again this year at the No Problem Raceway in Belle Rose Louisiana, June 6th to 7th.

This year, PEER 1 is planning something a little different. This year, we are challenging all hosting providers in the state of Texas. Yes, you read correctly: WE WANT YOU!

Are you up to the challenge? Do you have what it takes to participate against PEER 1 in the 24 Hours of Lemons race? Join us June 5th  and 6th at the No Problem Raceway in Belle Rose, Louisiana and let’s find out! So what is 24 Hours of Lemons?

Nasty. Brutish. Not Short Enough.

The crowd. The spectacle. The pall of blue smoke and roasted clutch discs. In all motorsport, no event captures the universal human need to whale on old crapcans and hoover down greasy barbecue like the 24 Hours of LeMons.

Each LeMons race is for cars purchased, fixed up, and track-prepped for a total of 500 dollars or less. But before reaching the grid, you’ll have to survive trials like the Personal-Injury-Lawyer Anti-Slalom, the Marxist-Valet Parking Challenge, and the Wide Open Throttle Rodthrowapalooza. Twelve hours into the race, the car voted People’s Choice is called in and awarded a cash prize; simultaneously, the car voted People’s Curse is called in and summarily destroyed. At the end of 24 hours, a gala awards ceremony plies the survivors with trophies, plaques, and four-figure purses in canvas bags full of nickels. What’s not to like?” — 24 Hours of Lemons website

On behalf of PEER 1 and ServerBeach, we’d like to remind you to be good throughout the year or else…

Natuba Gets Back To Its ServerBeach Roots


We are very proud to have our ServerBeach co-founder, Richard Yoo, back in the fold with his latest enterprise, Natuba. This innovative photo sharing company provides a simple way for people to capture and share single photos, whether from a desktop or a mobile phone.

“Our goal is to provide a simple way for people to share their photos and to make this process quick and easy, all based on a stable online environment,” said Richard Yoo, chief executive officer of Natuba. “In order to achieve this, we needed to rethink our network and hosting needs, which brought us to ServerBeach. The level of service and support is higher than what we found elsewhere, and we feel confident that our hosting and network will continue to grow efficiently with us, as our community of users increases.”

Natuba experienced a seamless transition when it moved its business to ServerBeach in September of this year. Since that move, the Natuba site is processing at speeds nearly 16x times faster than before, which means users can now see their photos appear online almost instantly after uploading from their mobile phones.
