Featured Employee: Stephanie, Accounts Receivable Clerk

by Administrator

Stephanie, employee with NationalNetStephanie has been working with NationalNet since 2007 as our Accounts Receivable Clerk. She handles all of our billing, inquiries from customers and help tickets. In fact, she gets to spend the most time with our customers and really enjoys getting to know them and creating a lasting relationship. When asked what her favorite aspect of NationalNet is, she replied, “I really enjoy the people I work with, and I like helping and talking to customers.” She also recalls a time when NationalNet helped her through dealing with her home being broken into. The employees came together for a fund to help her replace items that were taken, and she will always be thankful for the way she was treated, not as an employee, but as a family member.

With customer interaction being at the forefront of her position, it should come as no surprise that she graduated from Montana State University with a Health Administration and Public Relations degree. In her spare time, Stephanie has worked with the American Cancer Society and other philanthropies in Atlanta. She also enjoys decorating her new house, cooking and sharing her home with her fiance, two dogs, a cat and two turtles.

From Stephanie, and the rest of our staff at NationalNet, we wish you a Happy Holiday Season!

Press Release: The Atlanta Falcons hand the ball to NationalNet

by Administrator

logoATLANTA, GA – December 12, 2010 — The National Football League’s Atlanta Falcons Football Club, currently 11-2 and tied for the best record in the NFL, has partnered with world class hosting and colocation provider NationalNet to provide managed hosting and data center solutions for the team’s core web properties. Under the terms of the agreement, NationalNet will provide the football club with its total suite of fully managed hosting solutions. The main Atlantafalcons.com website and a variety of high-profile ancillary websites will take advantage of NationalNet’s fully managed hosting solutions and be housed in their brand new cutting-edge Atlanta Data Center.

“We sought out a hosting provider that could not only handle our intense in-season traffic spikes but also manage a complex server configuration that ingests content from a variety of third-party sources,” said Dan Levak, Director of New Media for the Atlanta Falcons. “After a visit to their state-of-the-art data center in Marietta, Georgia and meeting with a diverse cross-section of their organization’s employees, it became clear that NationalNet was the perfect partner. The personalized support we’ve received throughout our engagement with them reinforced their reputation for unparalleled customer service.”

The Falcons re-launched their award-winning main website in September, and the franchise has been relying on NationalNet’s managed solution throughout a season that has seen huge crests in site traffic due to the team’s success and their preponderance of thrilling, last-minute victories.

“Our newly-launched website has performed flawlessly, even during times of intense traffic,” Levak said.

NationalNet CEO Tony Morgan has always approached his business in a similar fashion to Falcons Owner & CEO Arthur Blank, intensely focusing on superior customer service as a means to providing the highest quality product possible.

“Being born and raised in Georgia, I have been a lifelong fan of the Atlanta Falcons, having watched them play through the good times and the bad for more than 35 years”, said Morgan. “I have been so impressed watching the team’s current ownership and management with their strategic moves, both on and off the field, to bring to my hometown a world class football team. Nothing makes me any happier than to be able to put my professional team to work for their professional team.”

Featured Employee: William, Director of Technical Services

by Administrator

Director of Technical Services, NationalNetDirector of Technical Services is a new title for William Slocumb, but is one he has proudly accepted in recent weeks. The position entails leading our Network Operations Center (NOC), making sure that support tickets are handled quickly and efficiently and to act as an escalation point for problem solving with customers.

While being a Director is a new position for William, he has been with NationalNet since 2006, when he graduated from Southern Polytechnic State University (SPSU) in Marietta, Georgia. Aside from his ability to manage our technical services, he has an array of interests from gaming to programming. And by programming, we mean developing game engines to help him with his favorite video game, Quake. We think that’s pretty nifty.

Aside from his hobbies and working, William also enjoys exploring new restaurants and cultural experiences that are offered in the Atlanta area. A favorite place for him and his girlfriend include well known MF Sushi in Buckhead.

We are happy to formally introduce our new Director of Technical Services to you, and please join us in giving him a round of applause.

Featured Employee: Brad, Director of Engineering

by Administrator

Employee Highlight - NationalNet - BradBrad is head of all things network, peering and engineering related for NationalNet. He joined us in 2008 after his employment with WV Fiber, Inc. in Nashville, TN. His extensive knowledge in the field made it a no brainer for our team to woo him away to help us grow.

Brad plays a major role in the Internet world by his involvement in organizations such as ARIN (American Registry for Internet Numbers), NANOG, Equinix Peering Forum, AID Phone and Part 15. Recently, Brad spoke to network operators from around the globe as Atlanta played host city for NANOG-50, the 50th meeting of the North American Network Operators Group. His presentation centered on the enormous task of upgrading the entire internet (yes, the whole thing) from IPv4 to IPv6 over the coming months and years. Aren’t you glad his expertise is housed within NationalNet? We sure are.

In the past, Brad has volunteered his services to help those in need, including serving two months in the flood ravaged city of New Orleans following the Katrina disaster to rebuild network services in the region. He continues his philanthropy in a personal way as well, by serving on the board for his HOA and as the Chair for the Security Committee.

Brad and his wife have four furry pugs, named Jacob, Madeliene, Gilbert and Stanley. They continue to support the Music City Pug Foundation in their home town of Nashville, TN.

NationalNet: A Step Toward Sustainability

by Administrator

NationalNet is proud to join the ranks of other eco-friendly data centers by installing an Eaton Energy Saver System. The new system is built to run our UPS units more efficiently and cut down the amount of unused power. This is a common problem with data center structures, and Eaton has developed a way to minimize the loss; which translates into 99% of usable power. NationalNet - green web hosting, green datacenter

In an excerpt from their case study, “Eaton is changing the game with the revolutionary Energy Saver System. UPSs equipped with this technology deliver 99 percent efficiency or better without sacrificing reliability… The intelligent power core continuously monitors incoming power conditions and balances the need for efficiency with the need for premium protection, to match the conditions of the moment.” You can read more of their case study here.

So, that’s all fine and dandy, but how does it translate to the green initiative? By following the logic of increasing our own power efficiency from 94% to 99%, a data center critical load over 2,000 kW, there is a five-year energy savings (kWhrs) of more than 8,897,000. That equals saving 6064 metric tons of CO2 over a five-year period, or taking more than 1897 cars off the road for a full year!*. Now, that realization is impressive. And as we continue to grow, we will consciously be minimizing our carbon footprint and doing what we can to improve the environment in the data center scheme of things.

This eco-conscience step for NationalNet is one of the biggest that we’ve taken so far. With a history of green internal practices, such as recycling plastics and using high efficiency chillers for our air conditioning units, installing Eaton’s new program just makes sense.

*Figures used in study have been extrapolated based on Eaton’s Energy Saver System report
