Web hosting provider Advanced Web Hosting has announced it recently upgraded its infrastructure by migrating to a new data center in Northern Virginia. The web host was informed by SoftLayer that the second floor of its HOU01 data center in Houston, which had been housing Advanced Web’s servers for over a decade, would soon be closing.
The company had already planned on overhauling much of its web hosting and dedicated server architecture in early 2013, but the SoftLayer data centre closing forced Advanced to implement its loosely formed plan immediately. Advanced Web’s management team and technical staff purchased new Dell R310 and R610 servers that were placed in Equinix’s Ashburn, Virginia data centre.
