HOST ie -- Along with 800 other clients, I depend on the reliability of web services provided to me by Novara Technology Group. My blog content sits on Compaq DL320 & DL380 servers in one of Ireland's leading data centres, Nevada Tele Web Hosting Ireland. I've spoken to several of the Host.ie engineers and I believe they have some of the best Linux hosting in Ireland. I can see from my server logs that their 24x7 monitoring is backed up by sophisticated management services. The combination gives me confidence in maintaining uninterrupted operations of my blog.
Novara runs a fully Cisco switched network, equipped with some of the finest hardware I have seen in a single serviced location. Their capabilities span from hosting and back-end services that have served me well as a long-time blogger.
