It ends at 5pm on Friday, April 26. Up for grabs: $500, $250 towards a cheap annual hosting package, and “Liquid Web bucks” to be spent in the Liquid Web online store. Go sign up for cheap annual hosting, and enter the contest!
Before we talk about the details of the contest, let's look at Data Center Number Three for a minute.
About Data Center Three
Of all Liquid Web's data centers, Data Center Three is not only their newest, it is also the biggest. It has an impressive 90,000 square feet of secure space, containing a massive 25,000 servers, in Lansing, MI.
If security is important to you, you'll be happy to note this facility is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Each entrance to the facility and all of the space within the data-center is monitored by security cameras, and is monitored remotely by a 3rd party security company.
The entrances are all protected by an electronic perimeter access card system, and are outfitted with mantraps and interlocking doors. It's safe to say your data is safe here!
Data Center Three Specs
If you choose Liquid Web for your cheap annual hosting needs, you'll be pleased by its redundant fiber entrance, expandable to 1840 gigabits per second. There are also multiple redundant gigabit ethernet links connecting Data Center Three with Data Centers One and Two.
The power system is equally impressive: 8,000 kVA (expandable to 32,000 kVA) utility power feed; Liebert PDU units; redundant ASCO closed transition bypass isolation transfer switches; multiple N+1 Generac diesel generators; multiple N+1 Powerware 9395 550 kVA UPS; and the ability to provide Tier-4 power.
Get Cheap Annual Hosting, Win A Prize
It's easy to enter to win the prize, and you don't even need to sign up for a hosting package. Of course, if you signed up the company would be thrilled, but it isn't necessary.
Simply head to the Scavenger Hunt site and take a tour of the new Data Center via Google Street View. Before you tour the facility, however, you'll want to jot down all 12 clues (three released per day at 1:00 pm) so that you can solve the clues along the way.
When you discover one of the items, take a screen-capture of it. Edit in your Liquid Web shop account username-directly on the picture. Post the picture to your Facebook or Twitter account (or both!), remembering to tag Liquid Web. You MUST include the link http://bit.ly/dc3hunt in the photo description to qualify.
The first person to solve all 12 clues and follow the rules for posting the pictures to the letter is crowned the Grand Prize Winner and walks home with $500. The next ten people that solve it correctly claim $250 towards free hosting. After that, more prizes of Liquid Web bucks are awarded at random. Use these in their online shop.
What are you waiting for? Head over to the cheap annual hosting company and play along. You might receive hosting services for $250 off!
