Never heard of CDLAN, but the name makes me think about a LAN party in the early days when CD's were a thing...
All the best to Salvatore and crew!
every customer will get a free SPA day now from CDLAN SPA
It has always been their upstream in Italy.
Uncle works there as a consultant and was CTO some years ago. He designed their new datacenter when they expanded to own building instead of just renting floors from someone else and C21 is a Tier 4 Datacenter now, possibly the most modern in Italy to date. Some people might remember the nightmarish move we performed, even as it was a few hundred of meters away only, the fibercut to the other building etc.
His current job and his age no longer allow for taking care of Prometeus separately, so we are now under the same umbrella, still in Uncle's "courtyard" sort of speak.
There are plans to expand, bringing our international perspective to what it is mostly an Italian-centric company (as people say, few have heard of CDLAN, in spite of being a pretty big provider in Italy, including internet access to companies and people).
@Maounique Can you pass message to uncle sal that I am wishing him all the best.
I wish him and everyone over there the best. You've all been a great bunch of folks and it's always been a pleasure working with you all. While last time we directly chatted has been years, Sal's always been a top notch individual. Wishing the best in his health and his life. Also I know you've been integral to running Prometeus as well. Wishing the best for everyone there. Nothing but respect.
