Where is Stack Exchange/ Stack Overflow hosted now?

I found a few posts from a few years ago and am not sure if they are current.

    Which posts? Hard to say if they're current or not without a link. ;) The short version is that we have two data centers - one in Colorado, one in New Jersey. The latter is currently our primary. – Adam Lear Jan 28 '18 at 7:23
  • @AdamLear do you mind sharing the name of the company in NJ? it was a post on the SE blog – John Jan 28 '18 at 7:40
  • I don't recall it off the top of my head. I can ask around when I'm back in the office next week, though. But out of curiosity, why do you ask? – Adam Lear Jan 28 '18 at 7:46
  • looking for a reputable hosting company to host my server – John Jan 28 '18 at 8:01
  • @AdamLear You don't have the Oregon datacenter anymore? – Sonic the Anonymous Hedgehog Jan 28 '18 at 8:18
  • @SonictheAnonymousHedgehog We might still technically have one, I'm not 100% sure. But either way, nothing runs out of it or is set up to run out of it like it used to be. – Adam Lear Jan 28 '18 at 8:34
  • Pretty sure I saw a tweet about the last servers being removed on Nick Craver's twitter. – Journeyman Geek Jan 28 '18 at 9:07
  • ah twitter.com/SuperDalgas/status/947998519998033920 citation found! Was a retweet and damn does Nick Tweet a lot. – Journeyman Geek Jan 28 '18 at 9:10
  • @rene The answer to that question does not explain where the servers are. – Sonic the Anonymous Hedgehog Jan 28 '18 at 9:37
  • @SonictheAnonymousHedgehog yes it does under the heading Host three datacenters:. When I was editing my answer to add the other datacenters Google returned me that specific post so I stopped editing and dupe hammered it. No need to replicate that stuff in a dozen places. And if you feel that the dupe is not correct then please down vote my answer because it has to be incorrect as well in that case. – rene Jan 28 '18 at 10:02

The New Jersey Datacenter is hosted at QTS as they are mentioned in the blog How we upgrade a live data center authored by Nick Craver.

It says in that blog

This is where we have to give a shout out to our data center QTS.

showing the appreciation for that company.

As far as I know they didn't switch providers after that, at least not for the one located near NJ.

  • QTS! That's the one. Yeah, there haven't been any switches since that post. It's still accurate. – Adam Lear Jan 28 '18 at 8:33
