Esigns Management Team
Jeff Lowenberg COO, National Operations
COO, National Operations Exhibiting perhaps the perfect blend of right-brain and left-brain sensibilities, Jeff Lowenberg has made an indelible mark on the technology and retail fields while earning a reputation as an effective manager of people, a results-oriented operator, and a dependable team player. Lowenberg joins the eSigns management team after extended associations with the Beeper Boutique, EV1.net and EV1 Servers, all of which were enterprises touched by the hands of the Marsh family. Lowenberg served as General Manager of the Beeper Boutique, one of the most successful pager and cell phone retailers in the country, and was responsible for the oversight of operations of 18 retail locations in three states. He then became the first employee of EV1.net, the parent company of EV1Servers, which ultimately became the largest privately held ISP in the United States. During his years at EV1.net, Lowenberg was responsible for all customer interface departments of the company's dial-up business, including sales, customer service and technical support. Jeff later joined EV1Servers in 2001 as its Vice-President of Operations. Most recently, this graduate of Texas A&M University served as Vice-President of Operations for The Planet, an international leader in web hosting whose merger with Softlayer made international headlines. His duties for The Planet included responsibility for customer support, provisioning, data center logistics, facilities management and network operations plus supervision of the design, construction and maintenance of The Planet's seven world-class data centers.

At The Planet, a Houston-based managed hosting operation with seven data centers and 52,000 servers, "The retirement decision is made on a product-by-product basis," says Jeff Lowenberg, vice president of facilities.
He is not speaking of individual machines but of types of servers. For example, The Planet currently buys four different server chassis from Dell and manages them as groups. "We try to use the same type of servers internally as we use for our customers," he says. Those servers, therefore, are retired on the same terms as those used for customers. The industry average lifespan for a server is approximately five years, but that varies by facility. Corporate data centers are more likely to keep hardware in service longer than hosting operations. Both corporate and hosted data centers consider return on investment, operating and capital expenses, but hosted facilities also must consider customers' perceptions and therefore offer the newest and most capable hardware to remain competitive, says Lowenberg. "All of these servers otherwise would have been returned," says Lowenberg.
