Installations, customization, and consulting
Our web application experts have installed numerous instances of Bricolage, and as a result we can have organizations set up in dedicated hosting solutions quickly and efficiently. Our installation service includes all of Bricolage's optional Perl modules, as this gives our clients access to full functionality right out of the box. We also configure FTP template servers, cleaning scripts, database vacuuming scripts, and a phpPgAdmin instance so the database can be viewed and altered directly. Our knowledgeable staff is also available for consulting and customization of Bricolage installations.
Single point of support
If anything goes awry with a Bricolage installation (whether it’s a hardware or software based problem) our hosting support staff is equipped to take care of it immediately. Meanwhile, we have Perl experts on staff, available to enhance and customize each install of Bricolage.
Our servers are developed and built by developers using Perl: the very same programming language used to code Bricolage itself. These engineers have years of experience running demanding Perl applications; meanwhile, our servers are mod_perl optimized. Thanks to our Bricolage-only servers and PostgreSQL customization, your installation will be operating in an environment custom-built to minimize load times and accelerate burning and publishing.
We can upgrade your Bricolage installation seamlessly, adapting it as your needs grow. For an example of how exactly we do this, you might find it interesting to review what we did for Magnify.net
All of our hosting plans are on fully managed servers that include regular updates, security patches, and 24x7x365 monitoring. We don't just monitor at the server level, but also at the application level, to ensure Bricolage is running properly. More about our Server Monitoring.
Full Access to Source
Our clients have full access to the source code of their Bricolage installations, as well as to their Bricolage mod_perl server and PostgreSQL database. Bricolage installs run inside their own Apache install, so clients can change the configuration and restart it on their own, as needed.

What they said
“Presidential campaigns are fast-and-furious and require a no-nonsense, knowledgeable, and nimble application hosting partner. Gossamer Threads provided the Nader/Gonzalez campaign with a rock-solid foundation, and they ensured that our critical campaign web applications were up-and-running 24/7. Their response time is second- to-none, and their ability to accommodate far-reaching needs is unique in an industry of impersonal, monster hosting companies.”
