“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language and next year’s words await another voice.”
With only a few days remaining in 2017, I would like to take a moment to reflect and show my sincere appreciation and gratitude for everyone who has helped make 2017 a great year for Hostway, especially our customers, our partners, local communities, and the dedicated and talented Hostway team members worldwide. Our continued success is a result of all your dedication and hard work in our mission to provide secure and reliable cloud solutions to business enterprises across the globe.
Much of that success is evident in the accomplishments and growth seen in our organization during 2017. We’ve expanded our operations with new offices in San Antonio and Chicago, and we added our tenth international, world-class data center in Austin. We have added to our portfolio of products numerous security solutions, as well as Managed Support for the AWS Public Cloud, and VMWare. All this is so we may be able to continue to serve our thousands of business and enterprise customers around the world by delivering the best and most secure hosting and multi-cloud managed services.
Which brings me to the T.S. Eliot quote at the beginning of this message. 2017 was not without its faults and missteps. They will happen and we should not allow the possibility of failure to cloud our possibility of success. Last year has happened, so let those words, those actions, remain in the past. Next year’s words, next year’s actions, that is the new voice, and Hostway embraces that new voice and that onward path to continuing to serve customers and earn their trust in our every action so that we can really earn the title of “Trusted Cloud.”
Let the new year bring new challenges, new friendships, and new success. We welcome them and we will continue to broaden our capacity to provide secure, state-of-the-art cloud solutions for our customers new and existing. If you’re an existing customer, thank you again! You are the reason we are here. Always feel free to let us know how we’re doing. If you are considering Hostway as a partner, please don’t hesitate to contact us and let us know how we can help.
May this blessed holiday season, and the new 2018 year bring peace and prosperity to you and your loved ones!
Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!
Earth Day is upon us. This annual celebration began back in 1970, backed by participants 20 million strong and it has grown every year since then. All these years later, more than a billion people around the world are expected to observe this movement by raising awareness for the environment, natural resources, and wildlife. A justified global phenomenon, the concepts of eco-friendliness and ‘being green’ are now quite mainstream. Today, organizations, governments, and many other groups organize around these concepts and activities to produce policies and practices that aim to take better care of our Earth.
At one time, a single private company data center could consume enough power to supply tens of thousands of homes – in a single day. IT equipment energy use has an interesting profile, as we refer to an EPA report presented before Congress on Server and Data Center Energy Efficiency:
