Leading whisky website hosted by Contabo

Dr. Horst Lüning, owner of the largest german whisk(e)y website, usually only savors the finest single malt whiskys in his video posts on Youtube. Among more than 20 million website visitors who visit the portal and the online store on whisky.de every month, a huge fan base of these informative and entertaining live tastings has evolved.

Now Contabo as a hosting provider was honored by Dr. Lüning to become the subject of one of his online videos, too. In this 5-minute video Dr Lüning reports about his efforts to create a new international whisky portal in the data centers of Contabo.

You can watch this video in German in the following:

Oktoberfest 2014

As every year the Contabo company joined the Oktoberfest – a must for every Munich based company. And so, two days ago, we all met in the Hofbräu tent where we have reserved three tables in the middle of the tent. You can imagine how great the atmosphere has been.

Together with our colleagues of Nuremberg who came all the way to Munich to join us, we enjoyed good food and a couple of glasses of beer (or maybe more 🙂 ).
OktoberfestWe would like to say thank you to our management team who made this merry evening possible, but also to those colleagues who kept up the support in the meantime during the others were celebrating and dancing on the beer benches.

Exclusive Insight: Contabo data center in Nuremberg!

In addition to various other (large) projects, whose positive results will soon be visible on our website, the commissioning and further maintenance of our second data center in Nuremberg was of course one of our major tasks in 2014. Our second data center location does not only provide the necessary space for further development, but also offers our customers many new opportunities for their server operation, for example corncerning colocation services:  by means of targeted site selection (Munich/ Nuremberg), our customers can now decide for themselves where their own servers and technical equipment are located in future.

This innovation and many other improvements will be found shortly on Contabo.com.

But before publishing all further news regarding the new data center in Nuremberg on our website, we would like to give you some impressions exclusive here on our company blog:
