Can history be made tonight in Las Vegas? Will our Caps hoist the cup for the first time. Hedgehog was not even around when they last played for the chance.

We ask all our clients to not have any emergencies between the hours of 8:00 PM ET through tomorrow morning so we can celebrate with our team.

Sincerest thanks from all of us at Hedgehog. :)

On this day in 2001, our small company was formed with the goal of providing the highest level of managed services to Non-profits and Associations that were in need of a different kind of technology company.

At the time, our industry was notorious for giving low value services as handouts to non-profits in an effort to show them how much good the industry was doing. As a buck to the system, we knew that providing high value services at reasonable prices was a better way of supporting the amazing missions of the non-profits we would come to work with.

17 years later we continue to support this mission and have expanded our services to include Fortune 500 companies, small businesses and while we have many new clients in the non-profit and association space, many of those first clients that we have been supporting for over 15 years are still with us today.
.
Today we have expanded our business to include cloud computing services and data center management services and we could not be more proud of what we do every day. Thank you to everyone who has supported and continues to support Hedgehog and we look forward to the next 17 years!

Ten Most Connected Data Centers | Data Center Knowledge 10/07/2016

Ten Most Connected Data Centers | Data Center Knowledge

The Web Hosting Industry Review recently published a list of the 10 Most Connected Data Centers and Equinix's DC2 location comes in at #9 globally. Many of our clients have toured our operations center in DC2 at the campus in Ashburn, VA and have seen first-hand the awesome power of this facility. What many don't know is that there are now 11 Equinix IBX's, (Internet Business Exchanges) what we know as data centers, in the surrounding area of the Ashburn campus.

Each IBX can offer different advantages. The power density at the DC11 location is amazing and can reduced your footprint dramatically. The ability to have custom designed, bio-metrically accessed private rooms in DC10 makes this perfect for large scale installations. But in the end, the ability to connect with almost every Internet provider makes the DC2 location highly sought after real estate.

Hedgehog's clients know the power of that connectivity. We put our client's content as close to the end user as we possibly can by hosting our network and our servers at DC2. In a time where data center space seems to be popping up everywhere, we continue to utilize Equinix as our primary point of presence, even at a cost greater than that of their competition.

We believe that is the same decision many of our clients make when it comes to using Hedgehog Hosting and Hedgehog Technology Services. While we many not always be the lowest cost option the benefits of working with Hedgehog are abundantly clear and are a proven value for the cost.

We will continue to explore the ever-changing marketplace that is forming as all of these new data center spaces come to market, but for now, we will continue to utilize one of the most connected data centers as our primary point of presence to benefit our clients.

Nova Labs 09/20/2016

Nova Labs

Hedgehog Hosting's very own Jeff Chanesman has embedded himself with the team at NoVa Labs and become a valuable resource for the lab

When Jeff Chanesman is not working on security configurations, hardware re-configurations, or any of the multiple tasks he performs daily for Hedgehog's clients, he is moonlighting at NoVa Labs here in Reston Virgina as a jack-of-all trades. Nova Labs is a membership-driven, all-volunteer, makerspace based in Reston, Virginia that was founded in 2011 with the purpose of empowering everyone to Rediscover the Joy of Making Things!

If that doesn't sum up Jeff, I am not sure what does. In a short time, Jeff has become the the laser steward, which holds responsibility for the lasers upkeep and he is in the process of rebuilding the computer for its usage. He has helped NoVa Labs network their two buildings and now the lego robotics kids would have internet, which is much needed fore their projects. He teaches classes on using the vinyl cutter and embroidery machine that he personally donated to the lab. He hosts woodworking open shop on Wednesday nights that includes a full wood shop and CNC machines. He loves to boast that they have the rc-4 series routers.

If that is not enough he co-hosts the maker circle and arts group every other Friday which includes crafts from old world, such as book binding, to cutting edge, pardon the pun, laser crafts and 3d printing. While he was recently asked to be on the board of NoVa Labs, he respectfully declined, but offered to serve on the committee for finding new board members.

In the end, if there is a need for overall help at the facility or if they need someone to serve as a fly on the wall for things like networking and server setup, Jeff has made himself an integral part of what they do at NoVa Labs. There are many people, especially children, that are the beneficiaries of Jeff's "Labor of Love" and we are very proud of all that he does to encourage everyone to rediscover the joy of making things.

Way to go Jeff! Keep up the good work.

Recently, Richard Feller had the opportunity to visit and speak with a class of MBA students at George Mason University's Fairfax Campus just down the street from Hedgehog's office this past summer.

A good friend and fellow Consumer Technology Association member, Skip West, an adjunct professor who teaches MBA 752 -Turning Ideas into Successful Companies at GMU, asked him to come and speak about Hedgehog Hosting, what our company does, how we got started, what lessons we have learned during our 15 years in business and finally, what I would teach/tell today's MBA students who are interested in one day starting their own businesses.

Richard says:

This was such a great opportunity as I feel like I had so much to say and give. And as many of you who know me may have guessed, I started writing my script that day. You see, I like to prepare when it comes to these things. If I have to make a 5 minute introduction, I write it out in advance and time it to the very last second. If I moderate a panel, I have every last thought typed out on paper so I feel prepared and ready.

The problem I ran into was that nothing was really coming together. I had a nice outline but it did not flow very well. When I read it over and over, it felt too planned, too robotic. I was nervous. I was not sure how things were going to go and I was afraid of disappointing my friend, his class and myself. So what was I going to do.

I looked over the notes I had made and when I came to the part about what I would teach/tell the students as they started their own businesses, it hit me. I wrote down, "Don't be afraid to take chances. No matter how you, or anyone for that matter, thinks it will turn out, take risks and go with your gut."

So I figured I better listen to my own advice and I threw out all of my notes, I put on my most comfortable shirt and went in and I just spoke freely with the class. I let the talk grow organically. If I felt like I was hitting a road block, I changed gears. If the class wanted more about a particular topic, I gave more. We connected and I spoke from the heart... and the gut. After all, gut instincts have been a guiding factor for much of what we have done at Hedgehog.

In the end, the night was a huge success. I told stories of our past and in turn I heard many great ideas for new companies that the students were working on. It brought me back to a time when I, along with my business partners, had those very same goals and aspirations for our little company.

Asking to speak about our 15 year old company to a group of young and talented students was a bit scary. Would they think we were old fashioned? Would they think we were past our prime? Well, it was just the opposite. They were just as invigorated to get started as I was to continue doing what we do. We all want to make a difference and we at Hedgehog have always felt that we do; even when others may try to tell you differently.

Thank you to my good friend and colleague for the time to speak to his class and thank especially to all the students who are working so hard, many of them taking night classes after their day jobs, to continue making a difference through entrepreneurship and innovation.

About the class:

MBA 752 -Turning Ideas into Successful Companies is an advanced course in entrepreneurship focused on discovery and development of an achievable business concept. Students develop a formal business plan and associated presentation materials. They are assigned to teams and must hypothesize a new business, research and test their hypothesis, and develop a comprehensive written business plan.
