CIX: I Am That Masked Like-Minded Businessman!

Since Tom has posted about our lovely new genny, I guess the worst-kept secret in the People’s Republic is out: yes, we’re currently developing a big shiny data centre in Cork, with rafts of blinkenlights and big screens and long-haired grumpy feckers running around ranting about how annoying customers are.

Well, it won’t be that shiny, and we’ll have to work hard to get the blinkenlights up to “raft” level, but it will be big, and there’ll definitely be big screens and grumpy feckers from day one. Have been grumpy feckers since day one, since I’m one of them, and the other is often referred to directly as The Grumpy Fecker.

We’re just installing a blog on the CIX website now, and myself and Tom will be blogging the development from start to finish. I hope ye’ll sing along with us as we go!

Hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to work I go!

  1. Best of luck with the endeavour Adam. Be interested to see what you prices balance out at as current floorspace/bandwidth/power costs in Dublin prices have been reasonable at rack level and higher for quite a while. Insurance is a different matter :(

  2. Thanks John, appreciate it!

    At the moment we’re taking each order as it comes as we have limited rackspace until our services area is ready, but our aim from the outset has been to be competitive on pricing; in fact it would probably be a bullet point in one of those mission statement things, if we had one. I’m sure we will rsn. :)
