Houston, TX (Gawkwire.com) Today, cPanel announced that its Houston office has reopened after being closed during Hurricane Ike which ravaged Houston and the surrounding areas this past Friday.
cPanel is pleased to announce that its Houston office has been reopened and operations are back to full capacity. Hurricane Ike swept through Houston last week leaving 2+ million Houstonians without power along with multiple billions of dollars in property damage. During and after the hurricane, the cPanel office was running on backup power utilizing our on-site generator. Along with the relocation of certain staff before the storm and the backup power at the office, all systems remained operational with the exception of a few phone extensions that were not ported off-site.
cPanel’s infrastructure includes backup locations in Pennsylvania, California, and New York, in addition to its primary Houston location. If any of these locations go down, the other locations will continue to operate and provide customers access to cPanel systems. Along with this redundancy, update servers are located throughout the world which will continue to provide access to cPanel software updates and installations. "We’ve always had redundancy and failover built into our operations," said cPanel’s Vice President of Operations, David Koston. "It is nice to see that our systems in Houston never went offline even though the building and surrounding areas were without
power for almost 5 days."
