Colocation Zombie Invasion – Happy Halloween

A zombie apocalypse and  web hosting having something in common?

“No way,” you say?

Well, let me ask you this; if a zombie apocalypse were to happen, and we were all thrust into a George Romero-esque post-apocalyptic world, what would your most pressing concern be?

Not getting your various body parts eaten by zombies? Perhaps.

Securing a local mall to use as a hideout from the flesh eating monsters? Also, a possibility.

What about stealing a giant big-rig and outfitting it with spears, machine gun turrets, and other means of defense for your plotted escape from the hoards of your, once friendly, neighbors? That’s also probably a rather prudent means of crisis management.

But let’s be honest, the most important question you should be asking yourself during a zombie invasion would be, “what am I going to do with all of my information stored on my server?”

I mean, what are you going to do in a post-apocalyptic world without all the data from your server?

Folks, this is exactly why Superb Internet offers one of the best collocation programs in the business.  If the security of your data is of the upmost importance, then why trust anyone else with your sensitive material?

If storing your data in a secure, climate controlled, state-of-the-art facility is a concern of you and your business, then look no further than what Superb’s collocation offers.

Picture with me; it’s the morning of zombie invasion day 1, and the flesh eating baddies are on your block. They’re minutes away from your house, but you need to get your server out the door and to our secure location ASAP, because, you know, if a zombie got their hands on your sensitive date, then imagine all the chaos they would cause trying to rip open the casing and find those succulent brains they so eagerly desire.  I mean, they won’t find any actual ‘brains’ but you’re server is going to be amazingly screwed.

When you collocate with Superb Internet, just send us your servers and we will take care of them in our brand new SSAE-16 (SOC1) Certified & Audited data centers.  Just ship your server to the data center of your choice and we take care of the rest.   We even have multiple data centers in Seattle, Washington, and just outside Washington D.C., in Mclean and Springfield, Virginia. So, rest assured, if location is an issue during this apocalyptic meltdown, we’ve got you covered, coast to coast!

Zombies don’t care about ‘customization’ but you probably do! And with Superb’s attention to detail and our love for our customers, customization is always at your finger tips: direct connections, specialized bandwidth options, extended server monitoring, server clustering, security and firewall services, load balancing and advanced colocation services—all are at your disposal when you host with Superb. Your servers will always have reliable power, backups, and physical security in your choice of three convenient high-tech hubs.

There’s no need to worry about fire, vandalism, theft or natural disasters, or in our case, a zombie apocalypse–live monitored surveillance keeps an eye on your servers 24/7/365. So even if the zombies managed to reach one of our data centers, our staff would certainly be on the rooftops with shotguns protecting your data.

Well, either that, or they would be zombies themselves–and would then be trying to eat your brains. But hey, we will certainly do our best to not be eaten by zombies; until, at the very least, you’ve gotten your server from your rack at our data center.

Do you see that people? We will even protect your servers with our own staff if a zombie invasion ever were to happen…

To add to the security of our data centers, your collocated rack space is kept under lock and key at all times. Biometric access control systems ensure that only the most skilled technicians and your representatives ever have access to your servers. Smoke detectors, fire detectors and surveillance cameras are kept in top operating condition.

And if there happened to be a case of a really, really smart zombie wanting to remotely access your data through less-than-legal means, with our improved customized firewalls and daily backups, their zombie-hacking efforts will be futile. Add to that our generous bandwidth, and the apps and policies of your “neighbors” have absolutely no effect on your server performance. Your data is secure from the moment your server arrives at our data center, until the moment you decide to pack it up and leave the fledgling zombie horde in your rear-view.

So, if security is your #1 priority, and you don’t want to deal with the hassle of finding the right hosting company to meet your collocation needs, look no further than Superb Internet.  We’re aware that security is of the utmost importance, and we’re also aware that a zombie apocalypse is a real thing.

Wait. What? Zombies probably aren’t real?

Yeah, you hope they aren’t real.

Purchase a collocation rack from Superb today, and keep yourself secure, no matter the circumstance.
