    Anybody know about Continuum?

    Hey,

    Does anybody know the back ground of the guys at Continuum? I have no doubts about them from speaking with Tom, but I'd just like some confirmation that their operation is all in order and it's 100% legitimate

    Does anybody hold information as to the original backgrounds of the people behind to build or has anyone started moving gear in before they go online?

    I'm very interested in this as well as we're hoping to go with them quite soon.

    Hi All,

    I'm quite happy to provide background information to anyone interested. Quickly, my partner and I were the previous owners and designers of the Stargate Data Center, in Illinois (Press releases can be found at Google). Our previous clients were predominantly Fortune 500 enterprise level (Solo Cup as an example) customers.

    Feel free to PM me with any questions.

    Tom

    I have had a talk with them about collocation before, they looked to know what they are talking about.
    Think they only had a single fiber provider though with multiple providers over it? could be very wrong though!... I would check with them about that.
    If you are close go for a tour?

    Tom,
    Its been almost a week since I last nudged you. Is Continuum any closer to getting the AboveNet circuit installed?

    Thanks,

    If they don't have the AboveNet installed what are they using now?

    I can personally vouch for Tom back in the Stargate days. It was a shame they sold up shop and moved on. I did stop with them when this happened.

    Great network and support. Good luck with your new venture Tom. I hope it all works out.

    I had a tour and can assure you it is a very nice facility, you can tell they have done it before.
    I'm very excited to move my server in when they go online.

    Yes, it sounds like a pretty solid facility. I have e-mailed Tom, he seems like a very nice guy. I'm going down to take a tour soon, I'll report back with what I see

    I know they are new but would be good for a few more pictures of the place on the website.

    I had a feeling the install had gotten a little sideways. I hope it's resolved soon and look forward to getting an update.

    Yes, I was on site and met Tom (very nice guy) and the place looked great.

    I'll let you know when I'm online. Hopefully later tonight.

    It's a Continuum IP, but with the routing via Ubiquity (where most of their routing is at the moment I believe).
