Wave Wizard Internet, Inc. of Bedford,
New Hampshire is a full Internet service company, including Business
DSL service, dial-up, Web Hosting, and comprehensive technical support
services. Availability and customer satisfaction is the cornerstone
of their business.
Wave Wizard offers an OC-12 SONET
Ring connectivity to multiple backbone providers. A temperature,
humidity, static and airborne particles controlled environment designed
for maximum server reliability house the servers in their datacenter.
Diesel powered generators capable of independently sustaining server
operations for more than a week, surge suppression, and sophisticated
UPS systems protect customers' corporate assets.
Founded in 1993, Wave Wizard has used
many different operating systems in the process of seeking one that
provided the right balance of cost, ease of management, and stability
necessary for their 24x7 business operations.
Before choosing EnGarde as their platform
of choice, Steven J. Daniels, Wave Wizard Internet CEO, had used
nearly every operating system in their 10 year history.
Among their experiences with operating
systems included Windows NT 4, Windows 2000, FreeBSD, BSD, QNX,
BeOS, Linux in many flavors, OS/2, Novell, and Macintosh.
After finding EnGarde, the decision
to use it for critical business functions was easy. Steven Daniels
was immediately impressed with its ability to route mail for its
many dial-up and business users.
"The function control and features
combined with it's ease of use is incredible. I can take anyone
of the street, even if they have never seen a computer, and show
them how to administer this system. You do have one hell of a product."
When asked what Wave Wizard Internet
uses EnGarde for, Mr. Daniels responded with a resounding "EVERYTHING!"
He continues, "We use EnGarde for
mail, personal webspace for our dial-up users, web server, database
server, DNS, development, RADIUS, and more. I mean come on, EnGarde
is a single source solution."
"We actually have, and we did not know this until recently, one
of the top 20 ISP's in North America as our customer, so security
and reliability is very important to us."
"It's an administrators, programmers,
and developers dream come true. Because the system is so self functioning
administrators can get an extra day or two off, and programmers
and developers don't have to worry about becoming administrators.
The system takes care of itself.
I don't even carry a pager anymore.
In all honesty I owe my work free weekends to EnGarde."
