We were contacted by the ITT Technical Institute to help turn theory into practice for one of their classes.  We welcomed this opportunity to help educate the future Engineers of Central Florida.

We set up Daniel Poremba, Professor at the School of Information Technology, and his class of roughly twenty with Preston C, the Senior Linux Engineer at Atlantic.Net. Preston took the class on a tour of Atlantic.Net and explained the significance of each component from the fastest cloud Server to the industrial grade generator and UPS’s.

Atlantic.Net Sponsors Orlando’s 3rd Annual Walk-For-Wishes

Glenn March 19, 2010 by under Marketing 0 Comments

I would like to thank our staff and our local community who pulled together to help support the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s 3rd annual “Walk-For- Wishes” at Lake Eola in Orlando Florida.

I woke up thinking that the weather was going to ruin this event, but I was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful, usually unpredictable, Florida weather which contributed to a fantastic evening walk!  Attendance for this event far surpassed my expectations and this truly was a fun-filled event!  There were food, fun, games, and giveaways!  The best surprise of all was a special appearance by the Orlando Predator cheerleaders who got the crowd involved in an impromptu show of football skills, something I couldn’t do in heels!  Before the walk, 98.9 WMMO played the best hits of yesterday and today, and a tough competition of “Corn Hole” ensued!  I am sure some of the folks took advantage of the FREE 10 minute massages by another sponsor!

HIMSS Conference- A fresh Prospective on Healthcare IT

Glenn March 6, 2010 by under Healthcare IT 0 Comments

With the passage of Healthcare Reform by Congress, there is a lot of talk about healthcare in the IT business community.  Healthcare already accounts for about $2 trillion in federal spending each year; almost one out of every seven dollars spent in the U.S is related to healthcare.  It looks as if billions more will be funneled into the healthcare IT segment, thanks to the new federal initiatives that require health care providers to maintain medical records electronically.  This explains why almost every technology vendor out there is evaluating and exploring opportunities within the health care sector.

We sent Sam G. to the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society Expo (HIMSS) in Atlanta, Georgia earlier this month to do some investigating.

Disposing Off Old Computers And Servers.

Adnan Raja July 9, 2009 by under Dedicated Hosting 0 Comments

Several weeks ago it was decided across the board that I needed a fast computer for my daily activities here in our corporate office.  I contacted our NOC, told them what I wanted and a few days later a shiny new desktop sat atop my desk. I took care of all of the necessary transfer of data and whatnots and politely asked the guys, “So what do you want me to do with this dinosaur? Toss it?” They looked at me like I had a third eye and quickly informed me that there are “proper” ways to dispose of your computer. Gently removing it from my death grip they carried it out of my office, never to be seen again.

Atlantic.Net and the Orlando Magic – A Winning Combination!

Adnan Raja May 22, 2009 by under Marketing 0 Comments

Earlier this year, Atlantic.Net announced a formal partnership with the Orlando Magic. Atlantic.Net became the official server host of the Orlando Magic, powering key IT infrastructure of the Orlando Magic. Everyone at Atlantic.Net was very excited and proud to be named the Official Server Host of the Orlando Magic and to  protect their data in our world class data center facility.

The Excitement around town!

As you can imagine, all of Orlando is gearing up for the first home game of the Eastern Conference Finals. It seems like everywhere you turn around town, you see “Go Magic!” signs and Godzilla-sized banners of Hedo Turkoglu, Dwight Howard, and Rashard Lewis adorning the downtown skyscrapers.

Great Opportunities!

Thanks to the partnership, we were able to network with the international basketball players and had a lot of fun! As a proud partner of the Orlando Magic, we are often involved in special events with the organization. At one of the recent events, we had the opportunity to hangout and get to know our team during a fun filled night of casino games and shenanigans.

What is Dedicated Server Hosting?

Glenn December 18, 2008 by under Dedicated Hosting 0 Comments

A Dedicated Server is a type of web hosting where a business leases a full computer server with Internet access from a data center. Unlike a traditional computer server in an office closet, the Dedicated Server is kept in a climate-controlled data center where the network and Internet uptime are maintained by expert engineers. Business can now lease dedicated servers instead of purchasing and setting up a computer server at their office and hiring additional staff to manage and maintain the server. This allows businesses to eliminate the hassles of dealing with day-to-day server issues and focus on their business growth.
