Laughing Squid Celebrates 10 Years Using Rackspace Servers and Data Centers

On May 12th 1999 our very first server, the now retired squid1, went online at Rackspace. We’ve been leasing Linux servers in their data centers ever since. We started off using the now defunct Cobalt RaQ servers, evolving over time to our current line-up of Dell PowerEdge servers running Parallels Plesk. A couple of weeks ago we launched our new cloud hosting services on Rackspace’s cloud infrastructure.

Rackspace has been an amazing partner over the last decade and a critical component to the success of our web hosting operations. We look forward to the next 10 years working with them as we both move further into the cloud.
