Server caught flirting

Yesterday we have been informed by one our clients that spring fever does not only exist among human beings but probably also among servers - to be more precise, among two of our servers located in our data center.

The following has happened to the client's server:

Today we wanted to perform some renames over a mounted webDAV. Controlling the syslog I recognized that the main hobby of my server is the communication with another DHCP server.
Maybe the two servers were flirting with each other? In my opinion this is rather brazen without my consent, isn't it 🙂
Can you maybe give me a hint why my server behaves so strangely?

The request was not only amusing for our supporters, but also has encouraged them to think about the behavior of a server at the beginning of spring.
Maybe we should stop to consider servers merely as things and objects and should rather deal instead with their feelings in a serious way?

Anyway, a big thank you to our client who has approved the publication of his humerous description of a legitimate question that has caused loud laughter in our office.
Of course, we could find an appropriate solution for his request.

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:
