I am impressed with Ethernet First Mile (EFM). We have a customer that likes to share large media files and SDSL just wasn’t up to the job. They asked us our options and we suggested EFM. We installed it for them and they are more than happy with the service. Its a good price too when compared to leased lines. However the install job commenced with mounting the BT installed pieces and cables on the wall first. What is it with BT engineers that they leave all their stuff on the floor?!

Vital can provide Microsoft Service Provider Licensing Agreements (SPLA) to its UK Hosting customers. We can provide a range of flexible, pay per use software licensing solutions from a range of Microsoft products. Pricing is set in January and fixed for the year. All licensing comes inclusive of Software Assurance, so you can be sure you’ll always have access to the latest technology. Software included in the programme is available for licensing in two models. Per User – Subscriber Access License (SAL) and Per processor (CPU License) and now Per Core licensing. So if you want to spread the cost of licensing your software over the term of its use and you want to have access to upgrades when they come at no extra cost, then consider SPLA licensing.

It is important to remember that when you register a .uk domain, you do not officially “own” the domain name. Instead, the domain name is registered for you for a period of time. In the past the longest you could register/renew a domain name was 2 years. Nominet has now allowed for a longer registered period of up to 10 years.

 

What is the advantage of registering or renewing a domain for a longer period of time? In the 21st century your domain name is now the single most important and unique communication portal for your customers and your company, whether that is through your website, mail, intranet or extranet. Your company domain name is now more memorable than the phone number.

 

Protect your valuable online identity today into the next decade, and never be offline from the internet again because of a lapsed domain. Register or renew your .uk domain name through Vital for up to 10 years.

“Vital have upgraded the core networking equipment in its network. This has entailed upgrading the processor capabilities and memory of the core routers that provide the BGP routing function for the business. At the same time the upstream and WAN ports were changed to Gbit capability. The work was done in several small windows over the last three months to minimise disturbances to customers and allow small incremental changes that were easier to rollback from if problems occurred.

This has now given Vital the following benefits.

At the time the utilization of the network was only at about 30%. However this was growing and the increase in port speed has future proofed the network for further growth. The increased capacity also reduces the likelihood of any peaks of traffic from causing congestion on the network. The greater processing power and memory reduces latency and packet drops, handles greater traffic levels and will allow the network to handle IPv6 and other services better.

We now believe the network is positioned to provide the network services the business requires now and in the future, “

In March Vital was informed that they needed to move the entire East London collocation suite to a new location in the Telecity IDC. Telecity are expanding their IDC in Harbour Exchange to respond to the never ending demand for collocation space in the area. They have added more IDC space in between their existing estate at that site and increased the M&E services there to provide more power for the existing and new space and more cooling at a greater density.

Telecity Data Centre

 

To improve efficiencies at that site they have started using cold isle containment to enable grater heat loads in the cabinet space. This allows the cool air generated in the area to be focused directly onto the server and not wasted cooling the surrounding space. As a result of this Telecity asked Vital to move into a new suite that Telecity provided including new cabinets and cold isle containment. This gave Vital the opportunity to perform a complete review of all services in the suite and only move the live services. The new suite now contains only the cabling that is needed and hence is a lot tidier and well presented. Any customers interested in the  space in docklands can take on a tour of the area. The old cabinets in this area have been dismantled and moved to another datacentre.

 

As part of this move two customers were both moved and both commented on how they were very impressed with the new setup.
