PCI and HOTBackup in the Shetland Islands

PCI and HOTBackup in the Shetland Islands

We installed a new server in the Shetland Islands last week for the hotel’s PCI compliance logging.  We also gave them on-site and off-site backups using HOTBackup.


Other than the early morning start to drive to Southampton Airport for 06:00 the flight up to Edinburgh was painless.  After an hour and a half wait in the airport it was time to swap the 21-row plane with an 11-row plane.  Clear skies on the way out gave a fantastic view.



After installing the server there was time to explore the islands before travelling back to Sumburgh Airport:



If you like walking it certainly is a walker’s paradise.


I never cease to be amazed at the disparity in broadband and Internet speeds.  Sitting in the hotel room I had Internet speeds of 96Mb/sec, but struggle to get more than 3Mb/sec in some parts of Basingstoke.  How’s that possible?
