Help with 175+ webhosting accounts

Redteg has a dedicated server that he's using to host 175+ accounts, with the majority of them running WordPress. All fairly standard stuff. Lately (in the last 2 months) he's been dealing with large load spikes which are causing all of the sites to go down. He employs a server management company but they're currently unable to find the cause and a solution. This has resulted in him wondering if using a cloud setup would be a better option, or using a multiple server setup incase one crashes, and being able to switch to the other instance(s) that can pick up the load. Or would he be better off sticking with just one dedicated server? He's not wishing to manage this himself so would also like a recommendation on a tech support company that can help. He has a budget around $400 to $500 with a little flexibiity. His control panel of choice is DirectAdmin (He has no desire to return to cPanel). So, for those with simiiar setups or as providers of such systems, what are his options?

Can ARIN 4.10 assigned IP space be included in the valuation of a company for sale?

One of our newest members has a business which rents 2 different /24 IPv4 subnets and was also assigned some IPv4 from ARIN to help facilitate IPv6 deployment. All space is full or almost full. He'd like to spend more time with his family, and is considering selling his small IT business. What he'd like to know is if he can include the value of the ARIN assigned space in his business evaluation? The custom development, clients, and portfolio are worth enough but the value of these IPs can't be ignored. However, reading ARIN's guidelines doesn't make it clear if the IPs can be included in the sale or not. It's the entire business that's going up for sale, not just IPs, not just clients, not just hardware or anything. What are his options?

News from around the hosting industry

Our Industry News section is the place to find current headlines from around the world of hosting and infrastructure, but other general interest threads pop up in other sections of the forum, especially The Lounge. Here we we highlight just some of the interesting news items from around the forum:

  • Exa Infrastructure connects to Namex Bari in Italy - Roma Internet eXchange Point Namex Bari will host Exa and its subsea cables. This will enable all companies hosted in Namex Bari to have access to Exa's network including the Trans Adriatic Express (TAE), Exa's new low-latency subsea cable route between Italy, Albania, Greece and Turkey. Namex's CEO explains how this affirms the new strategic role of Italy, demonstrating the importance of having a new low latency route between Italy and the Balkans. Namex launched in 2021 and hosts over 170 organizations including Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook and Netflix, as well as Italian operators and ISPs.
  • Enterprise spending on data center switches on the rise - According to new research, enterprises led the bulk of growth in the data center switch market last quarter. It's also reported that enterprise spending on these devices broke record levels for the fifth quarter in a row. Cloud service providers' AI infrastructure investment is diverting budgets from traditional front-end networks. Arista, Cisco, and HPE led most of the revenue growth and sales growth spanned across all regions except China.
  • Microsoft Azure outage in Australia blamed on insufficient staffing - Microsoft had only three staff at an Australian data center last week when an incident occurred. A power sag knocked its chiller plant for two data halls offline, frying some of its storage hardware. Microsoft released a preliminary post-incident report large-scale failure, citing large enterprise customers affected including banks. The company reported the onsite staff "performed our documented emergency operational procedures (EOP) to attempt to bring the chillers back online, but were not successful."
  • Meta eyes Minnesota for new data center home - A filing with the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission confirmed Meta, parent company of Facebook and Instagram, is planning a large data center in Rosemount, Minnesota. If approved, the $700M data center would be powered with renewable energy. There is a vote taking place this week for approval.
