Our thoughts are with France

14 November 2015.

Nos pensées sont avec tous ceux en France en ce moment , en particulier sur les membres de l'équipe dédiés Thomas , Tom , Grégory , Nicolas , Philippe et leurs familles .

Our thoughts are with all those in France right now, especially out dedicated team members Thomas, Tom, Gregory, Nicolas, Philippe and their families.

France is Back On Line

Dear customers,

You will be wondering what happened in France this week that we lost connectivitiy with our rack.

It is unfortunate to report that there was a commerical problem at the site. Since earlier this year we had not been receiving accounts from the data center, due to a problem with the new billing system they installed earlier in the year, resulting in the account becoming unnoticed for payment.

Generally with our providers this is not a problem. However the DC decided to disconnect our service without warning the day before a public holiday in France.

We found that their technical support team refused to use good judgement over this time and forced us to wait until their accounts department returned from holiday.

Please be assured that we find this less than acceptable.

While we do have the service back on line now, we are now working to relocate to a new provider as a matter of urgency as, like you we are sure, we find this level of commerical service unacceptable.

Please feel free to raise a support ticket if you have any questions.

We will keep you posted on plans to make the data center more.

Thanks again for your understanding and continued support!


The GPLHost Team - Thomas, Damien, Tom, Gregory, Nicolas, Philippe, Don

Datacenter failure in France

Dear customers,

We have a significant failure in the french datacenter.
We found the fault November 10th at 8 pm CET.
After checking our infrastructure and have found that all of our racks were unreachable, we called the data center technical support.
Technical support remained unreachable until the establishment of a contact with a Canadian carrier. He has given us information that he was not able to help us and we had to wait for the availability of the french support.
So we decided to move physically overnight in the data center to ensure our infrastructure. Once there we have realized that all of our racks were no longer power supplied.
This Wednesday, November 11th at 8:00 am CET we contacted the French support who could not answer us either. After many calls we finally got a response like that our account was locked and commercial services must be contacted for an explanation and unfortunately it is a public holiday in France so business services will not be reached before tomorrow November 12th at 8 am CET.
In parallel we always try to find a solution and unlock this incomprehensible situation.
We had already made the decision to change the data center due to multiple problems and provide better quality service to our customers.
It turns out that we will accelerate this process and certainly migrate data center next month.

We are overwhelmed by such behavior and we see ourselves sorry for the inconvenience. We remain available for further information and get back to you as soon as we have news.

With all our apologies.

GPLHost team


Bonjour chers clients,

Nous avons une panne conséquente dans le datacenter francais.
Nous avons constaté la panne le 10 Novembre à 18H CET.
Après contrôle de notre infrastructure et avoir constaté que l'intégralité de nos racks étaient injoignables, nous avons appelé le support technique du datacenter.
Le support technique est resté injoignable jusqu'à l'établissement d'un contact avec un support canadien. Celui ci nous a transmis l'information qu'il n'était pas en mesure de nous aider et qu'il fallait attendre la disponibilité du support francais.
Nous avons donc décidé d'intervenir physiquement durant la nuit dans le datacenter pour vérifier notre infrastructure. Une fois sur place nous nous sommes rendus compte que l'intégralité de nos racks n'étaient plus alimentés de courant électrique.
Ce mercredi 11 Novembre à 8:00 am nous avons recontacté le support francais qui ne savait pas nous répondre non plus. Après de multiples appels nous avons enfin eu une réponse comme quoi notre compte était verrouillé et qu'il faut contacter les services commerciaux pour avoir des explications et que malheureusement c'est un jour férié en France et les services commerciaux ne seront pas joignable avant demain 12 Novembre 8:00.
Nous avions déjà pris la décision de changer de datacenter suite à de multiples problèmes et offrir une meilleure qualité de service à nos clients.
Il s'avère que nous allons accélérer cette démarche et certainement migrer de datacenter dès le mois prochain.

Nous sommes accablés par un tel comportement et nous nous voyons désolé de la gêne occasionnée. Nous restons disponible pour plus de renseignements et reviendrons vers vous dès que nous aurons des nouvelles.

Avec toutes nos excuses.

GPLHost celebrates 10th birthday and launches OpenStack private clouds

The first GPLHost legal entity was created on the 23rd of December 2003 (GPLHost LLC, USA). This means that at this end of the year 2013, GPLHost has reach an amazing 10 years of existence.

A lot has happened during these years. GPLHost was one of the first company to provide virtual private servers, using Xen 2.0.7 at the time. But right now, GPLHost is focussing on the cloud. Indeed, GPLHost is the company that has brought OpenStack packages into the Debian distribution.

Since we believe that OpenStack has matured enough, we are now launching a private cloud service available from all of our global 10 points of presence. If you wish to begin using OpenStack, using the most community focussed distribution (i.e.: Debian), supporting its development, using the service from the experts that are actually doing the packaging work, then get in touch and ask for a custom quote for your next OpenStack cloud.

GPLHost is capable of creating the OpenStack cloud that will fit your needs, using the latest stable version of OpenStack backported to the latest Debian stable release. Scale from 2 dedicated servers up to multiple racks. There is no "one size fit all" for such a system, which is why we will need to discuss with you what will fit your needs in terms of storage (using Swift or Ceph), compute power and networking.

If you feel like you prefer to run OpenStack by yourself and keep a complete freedom, but still need some help, GPLHost is also the right company to ask for technical support on OpenStack. We can bring our expertise from the bottom up: from choosing the data centers, purchasing your hardware for running your cloud, for installing and maintaining the OpenStack cloud software, and even running your application in the cloud.

The open source revolution has started in the data center as well. Free yourself from vendor locked-in licenses tyranny and high software costs. Switch to GPLHost: step in and help us contribute to the community.
