ResellersPanel Adds a New Hosting Data Center

By Ross Todoroff

The new facility located in Stockholm, Sweden, used to be a nuclear fallout shelter.

ResellersPanel, the reseller web hosting trailblazer, announces that it has expanded its data center network by adding Pionen - a Stockholm-based top-class facility operated by Bahnhof, one of Sweden's largest ISPs. So far, the clients under ResellersPanel's automated reseller hosting program have been able to choose between Peer1's facility in Fremont, California, and the BlueSquare data center located in Maidenhead, Berkshire, UK.

The new Swedish facility has a very interesting history. It used to be a nuclear bunker during the Cold War era. Designed to serve as a fallout shelter and located inside a solid granite cave, 30 meters below the ground surface, it is said to be able to survive even a hydrogen bomb hit.

The whole facility is powered by two German Maybach submarine diesel engines, which can produce a power output of 1.5 megawatts. Its interior includes waterfalls, a greenhouse-like Network Operations Center, a glass-encircled conference room suspended above a collocation hall. A triple redundancy Internet backbone access is guaranteed by both fiber optics and extra copper lines.

All clients under ResellersPanel's turnkey reseller program having shared hosting accounts can set the new Swedish facility as a default data center choice for their online stores from their Reseller Control Panel. Customers who have elected to choose a Virtual Private Server package instead will soon be able to take advantage of the Stockholm-located data center as well.

"Prompted by the huge popularity that our United Kingdom data center located 25 miles outside central London has gained among our European customers, we've decided to open the doors of still another renowned European data center for them in an attempt to better meet their growing needs," said Nick Blaskov, CFO of ResellersPanel.

"The cluster technology that we'll be shortly employing," he continued, "reduces the load on a given server by distributing requests made to it to other servers, thus ensuring faster data access." Mr. Blaskov concluded that "ResellersPanel's portfolio of offered services will soon include a brand new data center option for clients located in yet another continent".
