NYC and London capacity added

We have gotten new servers online over the weekend so we have capacity again for NYC and London.   Thanks for your patience.  Feel free to order as you wish and VPS will provision within 15 minutes.

We are full!

We have to report due to how awesome our VPS are (seriously! 🙂 we have been inundated with orders and as a result we are out of capacity in NYC and London.  Rest assured we’re working on getting more servers online.  We expect we’ll be finished testing and have new servers ready tomorrow (Friday).  We will immediately provision the orders that are waiting.   Thank you all for your business!

Microsoft Updates May 2015

Microsoft “Patch Tuesday” is here again.  Microsoft releases new updates on the second Tuesday of each month.  Looking at the list of updates this month there are none remotely exploitable externally (from outside the VPS) with the default configuration of our VPS.  Nevertheless, there are some important updates to protect against local vulnerabilities including the usual cumulative update for Internet Explorer.

You can update your VPS by going to “Control Panel > Windows Update”.   We recommend updating over weekends and rebooting after.

The SANS Internet Storm Center (ISC) has the best quick overview of the updates each month.  https://isc.sans.edu/forums/diary/May+2015+Microsoft+Patch+Tuesday+Summary/19685/

We do backups so you don’t have to

Everyone knows how important it is to backup your data.  Not everyone does it often enough.  Here at FXVM.net we take care of this for you.   Each weekend we backup our entire VPS infrastructure.  This is a lot of data for a lot of servers!

We keep backups to the weekends so there is no performance impact during trading hours.   If you find yourself needing a restore from recent backup just contact us on LIVE CHAT or send us a ticket and we’ll be happy to help.
