Internet company founded in garage grows to largest IPv6 backbone and over $20m in
Fremont, California - September 29, 2009 - Hurricane Electric, the world's leading IPv6-native Internet backbone and colocation provider, today announced its fifteen-year anniversary. Founded in the garage of President Mike Leber in 1994, Hurricane became a pioneer in the next generation Internet (IPv6) and last year reported annual revenue of over $20m.
Hurricane Electric's global network infrastructure comprises multiple OC192s, OC48s and gigabit Ethernet networks, and Hurricane offers numerous best-of-breed data-center services and systems, including colocation, web hosting, dedicated servers and internet backbone connections.
"I am thrilled with Hurricane's growth over the last fifteen-years," said Mike Leber, President of Hurricane Electric. "Over the years we adapted to the changing environment and continued to provide our customers advanced technology and service. It is this philosophy that has propelled Hurricane Electric to the nation's largest IPv6 backbone." Hurricane's steady and measured growth continues, despite the challenging global economic climate. To meet increasing demand, in November, Hurricane will unveil phase two of its 206,000 square-foot energy efficient colocation facility in Fremont, Calif.
"For the last six years, Hurricane Electric has provided CreativeCow.net with nearly perfect 99.99% network uptime and a secure environment," said Ron Lindeboom, CEO of Paso Robles, Calif-based Creative COW LLC. "Over the last 14 years, we have hosted elsewhere and when comparing services needed to drive a company like ours that is nearing the two million users a month traffic levels -- with high levels of video support, etc. -- we have found our 'home' at Hurricane Electric. Their customer support staff is unsurpassed, their infrastructure is first-rate, and we look forward to a continued relationship with Hurricane Electric for years to come."
