Our offices are headquartered in New Orleans. We love the city’s culture, music, and food, but it also means we have to be prepared for an occasional hurricane and the potential electricity or network service outage that can accompany a storm. We’ve always kept our customers’ production web servers out of the city; currently we have servers with Rackspace, Linode, Amazon, Engine Yard, and Peer1. However, we still run an in-office file server and a staging web/application server.

Infographics, also known as information graphics or data visualization, are graphic, visual representations of information, facts, stats or any type of data.

Additionally, people tend to be more interested in information that incorporates graphics or leading image.
