As we approach the end of May and take a look back at the first quarter of 2023, we find ourselves reflecting on a transformative period here at Netrouting. During these few months, we have accomplished a series of milestones that have been instrumental in shaping the trajectory of our company. We’d like to take this opportunity to share these significant developments with you.
Operationalizing the business
The year kicked off with an ambitious endeavor: the operational separation of our business from Colohouse. We initiated this process with a targeted focus on HR and billing systems. Our team has skillfully migrated operational assets to new internal systems, established new standards for infrastructure monitoring, and launched a new 24x7x365 service desk. Additionally, we have successfully separated our U.S. and EU billing systems, marking a major step forward in our operational realignment.
Rebranding our Netherlands Data Center
Our external growth was just as dynamic, with the rebranding of our Netherlands-based data center leading the way. This marked the debut of our DFDC (Data Facilities Data Centers) brand, with our flagship carrier-neutral facility in The Hague proudly wearing these new colors.
Infrastructure changes and lifecycle maintenance
We strengthened our global footprint by forming a strategic partnership with Equinix in Stockholm. This collaboration enabled us to consolidate from three data centers into a unified powerhouse, ushering in a complete revamp and renewal of our network and bare metal infrastructure in the region.
Following our global network lifecycle maintenance program, we replaced our entire network infrastructure in Hong Kong. With the help of our partners, Lumen and PCCW, we now offer top-tier connectivity in the local market.
Over 200 new dedicated servers available for immediate deployment
Hardware upgrades have also been a significant focus, with new bare metal infrastructure being installed across all our key locations. We have added Xeon E5-2600 v4 series, Silver and Gold series servers—boasting up to 2 terabyte of RAM—to our portfolio. These advanced servers are ready for immediate deployment in Amsterdam, Hong Kong, and Miami, and will soon be made available at all of our locations.
Our Plans and Expectations for Q2
As we transition into Q2, we have made strategic additions to our team, strengthening the billing and networking departments. These talented individuals bring fresh perspectives and will play a pivotal role in driving our growth.
Furthermore, we are currently working on separating Colohouse’s U.S. network from the Netrouting international backbone and are continuing our network lifecycle maintenance in locations such as Bucharest and Frankfurt.
The New Website
Our newly redesigned website and online shopping experience is due to launch in the next few weeks, providing customers with a user-friendly platform to explore our expanded product and service portfolio.
The achievements of Q1 2023 and our progress in Q2 reflect our unwavering commitment to innovation and growth. As we continue to enhance our services, we are excited to share our journey with you in the coming months.
Stay tuned, as we navigate this exciting path towards delivering superior service and state-of-the-art solutions.
