About Hosting

History   
 
SPOT Business Systems has been hosting our SPOT application since 1999.  In 1999 we used or Draper office and built a hosting facility within the building.  Because of growth and technical needs we found the need to co-locate in a larger managed facility.  In the summer of 2002 the search began for such a facility.

In May of 2003 hosting equipment and infrastructure was moved to Lindon, Utah and collocated in the Viawest/Center 7 data center.  This 40 million dollar facility was designed to be a high availability data center and utilizes the latest technology in security, network, power and cooling infrastructure. 

SBS hosting services started out in the new data center in 2003 with a single 40u cabinet (3) application servers, (1) data base server and has grown to (6) 40u cabinets and will be soon moving to a 10' x 20' cage.  Our current network consists of over 80 servers with (6) data base servers, (52) application servers and 12 Terra Bytes of disk storage.

 The current configuration of our hosting facility consists of over 1.6 million dollars of equipment.  This equipment is constantly being updated and optimized for peak performance and is monitored 24 hours a day.
