ServerBeach is a hosting provider based in San Antonio, Texas, offering hardware, bandwidth, automation tools and technical support to start-ups and small to mid-sized businesses.[1] ServerBeach was started in 2002 by Richard Yoo, the former CEO of Rackspace. In 2004, it was acquired by PEER 1, a Vancouver, B.C.-based IT infrastructure provider for $US 7.5 million in cash, a management services contract, and other bandwidth services.[2] Following the acquisition, Yoo left ServerBeach and returned to Rackspace.[3]

Video sharing website YouTube hosted its site at ServerBeach until November 2007, when the last of its architecture was migrated to Google. ServerBeach responded to the move by posting a humorous video to YouTube detailing the difficulties it had experienced with YouTube as a client.[4]

ServerBeach has 10,000 servers and is built on the PEER 1 network with 15 data centers and network locations in 17 cities in North America and Europe.[5]
