(The Hosting News) – A new solution providing for cloud infrastructure was unveiled by top web host and domain registrar Go Daddy on Tuesday. Called Cloud Servers, the offering provides the company’s clients with bandwidth accounting for 100 gigabytes on a monthly basis.
Among the platform’s primary features are load balancing, unlimited firewalls, server scaling, storage, backups and more. Go Daddy appears to be angling the solution to compete with similar offerings from Amazon Web Services and Rackspace.
Discussing the matter in a press release, Go Daddy CEO Warren Adelman emphasized that it was his company’s goal to “help businesses grow through our cost-effective, reliable, feature-rich products.” Adelman also referred to the offering as a “Go Daddy innovation that takes the complexity out of a complicated technology, yet gives users a substantial range of sophistication.”
Meanwhile, the company is offering its Cloud Servers solution with two payment plans. Customers can either operate on a pay-as-you-go basis starting at 5 cents an hour, or pay a monthly rate. Different server options vary in memory size ranging from 1 to 16 gigabytes.
The cloud servers can be managed via an interface compatible with either Windows or Linux. Just last month, the company announced that had received two million installations of popular blogging platform WordPress through the Go Daddy application installer Hosting Connection.
