HostingCon Interview with Solar VPS COO Ross Brouse

At HostingCon 2012 in Boston,’s Dave Price took some time to interview Solar VPS COO Ross Brouse. In the interview Ross speaks about the services we provide to our customer base, how we address customer concerns and needs and how virtualized infrastructures benefit  customers in terms of savings (physical space and CAPEX). Moreover the interview covers the benefits of owning our own datacenter and why customers should look at more than just the “pricing game” when choosing a VPS provider.

HostingCon 2010

Today is our first day back from HostingCon 2010 in Austin, Texas. I thought I would dedicate this blog post to telling everyone what we did down in Austin. I will warn you now, there is a bit of colorful language in this post. I apologize in advance, however, the use of this language is absolutely necessary in order to properly depict some of the events that took place.

Douglas Hazard and myself arrived in Austin on Sunday evening. We checked into the hotel and then proceeded to find a bar to drink at. Now, I’m originally from Minnesota so you would think I would have remembered this about the Midwest ( or really anywhere other than New York and LA for that matter ), however, I did not. Sunday is the Sabbath and therefore, everything is closed by midnight. New York City doesn’t care if it’s Sunday, Christmas or Rosh Hashanah, there are always cool bars open for drinking. We headed over to the Four Seasons and met up with Jason Silverglate, Josh Ewin, Matt McCormick and Sal Poliandro from DedicatedNOW. Luckily, Jason had pre-ordered me a beer so I didn’t have to sit there watching everyone else drink. Since the bar had just closed, 1 beer was the cap for Sunday night. Needless to say, I got a good night sleep.


Heading to HostingCon 2010

I’m sitting here at Newark Liberty International Airport killing a couple of hours before my flight leaves so I thought I would make a blog update! It’s been a couple of weeks since I added to the blog. My wife and I had a new baby 3 weeks ago so we’ve had our hands full with feedings, burpings ( I think I just coined this phrase ) and changing diapers. We’ve also had a house full of family, countless trips to the airport and massive amounts of dishes to wash. Needless to say, I’ve been busy.
