The Dreaded Server Move
It’s been an exciting June at CatalystX, after we removed some legacy servers and consolidated to a much newer platform. Our latest acquisition boasts some pretty impressive speed, RHEL/Centos 6, the latest-and-greatest Apache & PHP and a brand new, blazing fast mail server to boot.
While it allows us to pass a lot more functionality onto our customers, moving off of our legacy platforms proved to be quite a challenge. But now, all’s good, backups are secured and we’re rolling with it!
Earlier tonight, we rolled out a brand-spanking-new website for East Tennessee’s premier ICF contractor, Parks ICF. The company’s owner and staff were dismayed at the aging site, the difficulty they had in maintaining it, and the impossibility of updating, no thanks to a Flash-based header and navigation.
The result? They’ve gained SEO, Facebook & Twitter integration, an easy way to do Press Releases, a simple editor that anyone in the company use and TONS OF SPEED — users no longer have to download a 1 Meg flash file on each page load!
The Kitchen Sink
It’s been a while since we’ve posted anything here, thanks in no small part to our continuing attempts to stay busy and find new business through these trying times. We’d like to remind our existing customers that we’re still alive and kicking, so if you know of anyone we could help, please pass them our way!
For those who need fairly constant support, don’t forget about our one-year-term Monthly Service contracts, which can offer a pretty significant savings when you’re stuck paying standard, hourly rates — as low as $60 an hour for Corporate-class consulting!
And, as a reminder, for those looking for a new Website without dropping a huge down payment, we are offering the small down payment, with one year of monthly fees, with hosting included to help you cut some costs.
In the meantime, if there’s anything we can do, just let us know!
