Good Bye 2020 – Hello 2021

Takeshi EtoWhen 2020 began, we were excited about the prospects the new year could bring. But those feelings were crushed with news of a mysterious rapidly spreading disease and finally hearing the that this was a full-blown pandemic.

Once the pandemic declaration was made, lockdown orders soon followed, and we quickly took action to have all our staff work remotely. Of course, we had our hiccups, but since we were already set up with the ability for our system admin staff to work remotely (prior to the pandemic), we were able to transition all our staff quickly.

We knew it was important for us to be able to maintain our hosting infrastructure and our customer support, as our customers would increasingly rely on their online presence to help get them through this new reality. We also thought that we may see many businesses, developers and entrepreneurs pivot their businesses or launch new lines of online ventures and new projects.

I’m extremely proud that our team has been able to deliver on our hosting promises even during a tough 2020.

Highlights from 2020

In the past, at the end of most years, I posted lists of things that we accomplished. In this post, I just want to highlight a few things we did in 2020.

Security Solutions

Due to increased reliance on online technologies during the pandemic and with many working from home and most using their own hardware, we thought it was important to focus on security.

Technology Enhancements

Onward to 2021

As we put 2020 behind us and begin a new decade, we continue to be hopeful and we will continue to strive to offer our customers solid hosting solutions that they can count on.

We want to thank all our customers for your business and we wish all of you a happy new year. Stay safe and healthy.

COVID-19 and Everleap

Empty Office

I’m sure you have been keeping informed about COVID-19 and all the precautions being taken across the world. We are no different, and as such we had to make adjustments like many of you.

Last week on March 12th, the day after COVID-19 was declared a pandemic, we asked our staff to start working from home to keep everyone here at Everleap safe and healthy. We always had the flexibility and the systems set up to work remotely, but this will be the first time all of our staff will be doing so.

Yesterday, California has instituted a “stay at home” order which means for the foreseeable future our staff will be working from their homes.

Even though our staff could be working in their pajamas, the level of service you expect from us will not change.

If you have concerns, please feel free to contact us.

Stay safe and stay healthy.   



Slight Disruption in Yammer Time

In current times, I’m sure everyone is maxed out with things to do and it is easy to overlook things. Here at Everleap we use Yammer for internal communication.

A little past 12pm (Pacific Standard) our staff encountered the following:

yammer SSL expired
Yammer’s SSL Expired

It appears that the Yammer SSL cert expired. We checked the Office Service Status page on saw this:

Yammer Status
Office Status Page Showing Yammer is Up

After about 10 minutes, the Microsoft team reacted and updated the status page.

Yammer having issues
About 10 minutes later

Checking back with Yammer – the service was back up for our staff!

We witnessed quick reaction from the Microsoft staff.

This type of thing can happen to the best of us. So use this as an example to make sure to keep track of when your SSL certs expire. It’s best to use a contact email address that you check regularly and put reminders early enough in your calendars so you have plenty of time to take care of any renewals.
