Exabytes Data Center Migration!

November 11th, 2009

Hello avid readers, beloved clients and all,

Good news from Exabytes Malaysia! As part of our continuous commitment to provide a better service and better hosting experience to our valued clients, we would like to hereby announce that there will be a major data center migration and consolidation exercise that will be carried out starting from December 2009 and estimated to end by March 2010.

We are migrating all our servers from present 4 data centers located across Cyberjaya to Raja Chulan, Kuala Lumpur. We are taking up a 1000 square feet of data center floor space from AIMS data center, KL.

Why are we migrating?
Here some of the reasons:

  • Redundant network connectivity from bandwidth providers.
  • Reduced network downtime by having redundant network connectivity from multiple bandwidth providers.
  • Improved security with 24×7 multi-level security control access and monitored by a CCTV Surveillance Camera System

And the list goes on and on. :)

October 2009 Employee of The Month!

November 9th, 2009

Yes, the secret is out and it’s time to announce yet another deserving star for this month! This time around, witness the power of a man as the throne goes back to the manhood this time!

Often seen in his famous jacket (like a special agent), our new employee of the month is also famous for his ability to speak the machine language. Once the office hours start and his “programmer mode” kicks in, he will be lost in his own world, communicating away with his machine friends in a language most of us do not understand – the PHP/C++/MySQL. However, if you do not see him coding or sharing a “secret language” with his laptop, you would probably be seeing him staring intently deep into the laptop screen, surfing for new technology updates for research and development for the company. Because of his dedicated spirit, he has made it possible for not only the R&D Department, but also the company to progress and prosper. He also never fails to consistently meet deadlines under extreme pressure and, if necessary, volunteers to work overtime.

Therefore let’s give it up for our reigning king of this month ladies and gentlemen – Mr Chris, Exabytes R&D Special Agent!

So what are the traits he has, making him the best yet among the rest? Let’s check it out!

  • Extremely friendly and helpful with other team members (within or cross department)
  • Extremely responsible and independent in executing his daily tasks.
  • Is able to handle, follow up and complete the tasks assigned to him very well.
  • Is able to respect and cooperate well with other teams members.
  • Is consistently willing to learn new things.
  • Loves to share his knowledge with peers around him.

With the personality traits revealed, it’s time to reveal this handsome lad! Ladies and gentlemen, let’s give it up for your reigning king of the month, Mr Chris, Exabytes R&D Special Agent!

The War Is On – It’s Paintball Time!

November 4th, 2009

Guns and snipers, check. Masks and helmets, check. Bullets, check. Barrel cover and vests, check.

Okay. Looks like we’re all set to go. They want a war? Let’s give them one!

A couple of days ago, Exabytes held our annual sports activity – paintball! The battle took place at Kelab Kombat, Permatang Tinggi, Penang which is known as one of the largest paintball battlefields in Malaysia.

In case you don’t already know, paintball is a war game usually played in an open field. The players are divided into two teams. Each player will be given his own set of air gun. There are two ways in playing the game, elimination method or capture the flag method. Players are eliminated when hit by a paint bullet. The remaining team wins the round.

As you can see, Exabytes soldiers were all geared up with our “war tanks and trucks” for our journey to the battlefield as early as 7.30am and reached our destination at about 9.00am.
