(The Hosting News) – NetSource Communications (http://www.ntsource.com), a leading Chicago and Western Suburbs data center, now offers a complete line of cloud hosting services. NetSource is focusing on two distinctively different types of cloud hosting services, public and private cloud hosting. According to Craig Neidel, a NetSource employee of 14 years, “NetSource identified a need for private cloud hosting because not every company can host on a public cloud and still meet complex compliance requirements.” NetSource’s sixteen years of enterprise hosting experience has helped create a hosting product that offers reliability, flexibility, and a simpler billing model than the competition.
NetSource’s public cloud hosting starts for as little as $49 month. Businesses can create both Linux and Windows virtual server configurations and easily upgrade resources as they grow. The public cloud is protected using Juniper’s SRX Series firewalls and NetSource fully manages this security layer for the customer. NetSource’s public cloud hosting services also include some of the highest resource levels (CPU, Ram, San Disk) in the industry versus the cost of the service. NetSource built the public cloud using Citrix XenServer to ensure a fully redundant environment and enterprise performance.
NetSource also identified a need to build highly custom private cloud offerings to ensure business can meet today’s complicated compliance requirements. “NetSource can build a business their own private cloud with highly custom security hardware and settings,” said Craig Neidel of NetSource. The customer will work with NetSource to identify the correct level of security. The customer also picks the number of physical dedicated servers they want in the cloud and NetSource adds a dedicated dual-controller san and Citrix Xenserver to create their cloud. The customer can run virtual servers on the cloud in a full redundant environment and add additional physical servers as they grow. Each private cloud NetSource builds is fully custom for the client. This allows NetSource to work with the customer and architect the exact security solution (firewalls, IDS, VPN) that is required for the customer to do business. The end result is a fully scalable private cloud that was developed to meet the needs of individual businesses. All this starts for as little at $1,899 per month.
Both the private and public cloud offerings are hosted in NetSource’s state-of-the-art datacenter. NetSource’s facility was built with advanced methods for redundancy, security, cooling, connectivity, and compliance. NetSource is a leading provider of many hosting solutions and perform yearly SSAE16 Type 2 audits to maintain standards.
