Giganews Reaches World-Leading 1,500 Days of Usenet Retention

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Sep 14, 2012) - Giganews is proud to announce they achieved a world-leading 1,500 days of Usenet retention. Current retention levels translate to over four years of binary Usenet retention and 8.5 years of text Usenet retention. Unlike other Usenet providers, Giganews server clusters deliver the same speed and article completion across every day of Usenet retention across all 110,000+ newsgroups. Giganews' high quality newsgroup retention is a testament to the strength of its redundant infrastructure and engineering experience. 

"1,500 days of retention is the longest Usenet retention in the world. We're thrilled to be able to offer this level of service to our loyal customers -- we wouldn't be able to push the limits of Usenet without them," said Philip Molter, Giganews CTO. "Our retention levels highlight the strength and stability of our infrastructure. It is also a testament to the dedication and experience of our team."
