About V3 Media

V3 Mediaworks is based on over 34 years in the computer industry, over 25 years of local Internet industry experience, and was founded in March 2002 by Jamie Penner.  Prior to starting V3, Jamie Penner was responsible for creating Nanaimo’s first colocation data centre in 1999 providing full rack and shelf based solutions in a fully secured, environmentally protected facility with gas generator power backup.  As well, he was responsible for developing Nanaimo first dialup provider that offered regular dialup, 56K digital dialup and ISDN connections in 1997.

V3 Mediaworks is a full service technical and creative company specializing in the development of web site designs and web site hosting solutions for small to medium sized businesses and corporate end users.   V3 offers a full range of solutions including branding and marketing services, content development, web site design and development, web site hosting, Internet and social media marketing, Linux server setup and administration, and specialized email development.

We operate servers in Montreal, Amsterdam, New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Washington DC. For the purposes of your hosting requirements, we have virtually no limits on our 100Mb/sec capacity at our facilities. It is protected by man-trap, closed circuit camera systems and 24/7 on-site personnel. We monitor all aspects of our server connectivity and functionality around the clock with direct notification with 5 minutes of any failure. All systems are on full UPS and diesel generated backup power.
