VirMach:正在倒闭的边缘徘徊

早在7月份我们就预警了VirMach,显然目前他们并没有好转的迹象,下面是一篇LowEndTalk上的文章,关于他们的最新消息:

VirMach:正在倒闭的边缘徘徊

Interesting discussion on LowEndTalk over the last week about Virmach, a provider that has been sharing offers with our community for quite a while.

Several users are reporting issues.  Their Looking Glass (e.g., New York) also appears to be down.  Virmach’s main page on July 17 was the typical hosting company page offering various services and touting various deals.  Today it’s a redirect to their billing panel.

So what’s going on? On July 30, @VirMach posted a bit on his situation:

I’ve had to work every day, all day, for the past year or so as a result of the situation we’re in right now. So the number of hours spent are heavily skewed in my direction right now. We have two others working with us right now. We’re still a small company and always have been, but especially more recently.

Around the beginning of COVID we had our billing person leave, our hardware guy leave, and two sys admins leave.

It’s been OK until we also had to do a massive quantity of builds, deal with aging hardware, as well as migrations simultaneously over the last half a year plus. It probably also didn’t help that I made some badly timed sales and we had way more problems than anticipated with said new hardware. But yes, you are speaking with one single person right now who has been handling almost everything and not sleeping over a very long period of time especially since it’s the weekend and no one else is working today.

LET member @LordSpock (an awesome nick) speculated that perhaps they are having issues with one of their upstreams (ColoCrossing in this case), as systems based on CC are offline but others are up and working.  If CC cut them off, then that explains why they are scrambling.

Sounds like a perfect storm of cash flow issues and thin staffing, perhaps similar to the NexusBytes story.  Are you a VirMach customer?  What are you experiencing?

上周在LowEndTalk上讨论了关于Virmach的有趣的讨论,Virmach是一家与我们的社区共享产品的提供商。

一些用户正在报告问题。他们的镜子(如纽约)似乎也在下降。7月17日,Virmach的主页是典型的托管公司页面,提供各种服务并兜售各种交易。今天,这是一个重定向到他们的计费面板。

怎么回事?7月30日,@VirMach发布了一些关于他的情况:

在过去一年左右的时间里,由于我们现在的处境,我不得不每天、整天工作。因此,目前花费的时间严重偏离了我的方向。我们现在还有另外两个人和我们一起工作。我们仍然是一家小公司,一直如此,但最近尤其如此。

大约在新冠肺炎爆发之初,我们的计费员离开了,硬件人员离开了,两名系统管理员离开了。

在过去半年多的时间里,我们不得不同时进行大量的构建、处理老化的硬件和迁移之前,一切都还不错。我做了一些不合时宜的销售,而且我们在新硬件上遇到的问题比预期的要多得多,这可能也没什么帮助。但是,是的,你现在和一个人谈话,他几乎处理了所有事情,很长一段时间没有睡觉,尤其是因为现在是周末,今天没有其他人工作。

LET member@LordSpock(一个很棒的尼克)推测,也许他们的一个上游(在本例中是ColoCrossing)存在问题,因为基于CC的系统处于离线状态,但其他系统正在运行。如果CC切断了它们的连接,那就解释了它们为什么会争先恐后。

听起来像是一场完美的现金流问题和人员短缺风暴,可能与NexusBytes的故事类似。你是VirMach的客户吗?你在经历什么?
