Fayetteville, North Carolina, and Herndon, Virginia – (via THE
HOSTING NEWS) – August 9, 2005 – AIT, Inc., a fast growing web presence
and ecommerce provider, has teamed up with SWsoft, an established leader in
server automation and virtualization software, to offer Plesk software as part
of its dedicated server offerings.
AIT is incorporating the Plesk multi-platform server management software into
all of the operating systems it supports: Linux Red Hat, Fedora, Free BSD and
Windows Server 2003.
Clarence Briggs, Chief Executive Officer at AIT described the new service, ”The
power of Plesk combined with the stability of the AIT network adds up to a very
compelling system for users who want convenient control over their server. Access
to Plesk is something that customers, particularly self-managed server owners,
want to have and this software on our industrial grade infrastructure makes
sense from both technical and business perspectives.”
Serguei Beloussov, CEO, SWsoft commented on the new partnership, ”We are excited
that such a prominent and successful hosting provider has exclusively selected
Plesk as its preferred control panel. PleskÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s ease-of-use, full feature set
and flexible business model serve a rapidly growing customer base, and we continue
to invest aggressively in Plesk development and support as well as integrated
solutions including our Virtuozzo, SiteBuilder, HSPcomplete and PEM solutions.”
The addition of Plesk 7.5 Reloaded further expands AITÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s line of dedicated server
plans, which have become more appealing to the coveted SMB market as hardware
prices fall. Dedicated hosting has a strong appeal to companies that operate
heavily-trafficked web sites, have expansive shopping carts, and simply canÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t
afford the resource issues that sometimes occur with shared hosting.
”Our approach has been to offer customers the flexibility to virtually customize
their own plan, to choose the services that are mission-essential without having
to pay for features they donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t need,” said Kirk DeViere, AITÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Chief Operating
The companyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s dedicated options include self-managed and fully-managed plans
along with a series of bolt-on products that speak to security, e-commerce,
Plesk 7.5 Reloaded and subsequently Plesk 7.5 for Windows have been increasingly
selected by leading hosting service providers worldwide. Used on more than 60,000
servers and by 8 of the top 10 global service providers, the Plesk control panel
dramatically simplifies the management of Linux/Unix and Windows-based servers.
Proven through years of professional production usage, Plesk is considered the
industry benchmark for managing dedicated, virtual and shared server environments.
With PleskÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s built-in and fully functional Migration Manager, hosting providers
can more easily migrate from in-house systems, older Plesk versions and other
3rd party control panels.
