New Blog

Tuesday, May 6th, 2008

Hi all,

I’ve created a new blog to discuss the technical side of our service and all things “tech”. The Customer Service blog will just post service interruptions, major software upgrades and new services. Technical details and other ramblings of mine will be posted to “The Dev Null Blog

http://www.empoweringmedia.com/blog/

The first post “Going from a dedicated server to a VPS. Am I downgrading?” discusses some of the advantages of using VPS technology.

Some future blog postings:

  • Puppet. What is it and how we use it to manage our computing “cloud”
  • Offering root with managed hosting
  • When to upgrade from shared hosting to dedicated

I hope you enjoy it.
