Six Feet Up to Host Plone.org
February 10, 2009
Six Feet Up is pleased to announce they have been chosen to be the new hosting provider for plone.org, the Plone community website.
Six Feet Up has been providing Zope and Plone hosting services since 1999 and is proud to serve prominent clients such as Oxfam North America, Science Festival Foundation, George Washington University (Gelman Library) and IEEE Information Theory Society.
The Plone open source Content Management System (CMS) exists online through two public facing sites: plone.org, the open source community website where visitors can find technical documentation on Plone, and plone.net that features case studies and information on Plone vendors.
Plone.org's dedicated server with Six Feet Up will include:
- Dual Quad Core Intel Xeon 2.83 GHz
- 1333 MHz Front Side Bus
- 2 x GigE NICs
- 6 x 250 GB 7200RPM HD 8MB Cache
- Raid Controller with 256 MB Cache (configured in RAID-10)
- 16 GB Dual Ranked DIMMS
- FreeBSD OS
Six Feet Up will also provide system monitoring, nightly backups, and general system administration services.
Shay Vanlymen, Six Feet Up Director of Technical Services, is excited to meet the needs for the Plone Community: "We've upgraded our infrastructure, purchased new hardware, added additional redundant power, and added additional bandwidth in preparation for this move."
Six Feet Up CEO Gabrielle Hendryx-Parker adds: " Six Feet Up takes our contribution to the Plone community seriously and this is a chance for the hosting and infrastructure side of the house to give back. "Plone.org users can look forward to a re-energized site in early March 2009.
