Inautonews has its own server in downtown Chicago image

After 11 months of existence, we were forced to move from an shared hosting solution to grid service from Mediatemple, and – now ! we got an dedicated solution in the newly renovated 427 LaSalle data center facility located adjacent to the Chicago Board of Trade in downtown Chicago.

This because we are hosting more then 10.000 automotive images ( > 2000 px ) and other 50.000 medium quality images – and we do allot of traffic. But from now on the problem is solved and we move forward with the best automotive news, reviews and images.
