Las Vegas, Nevada – (The Hosting News) – September 2, 2008 –
Shared, reseller, colocated, dedicated and VPS hosting solutions, ServerPoint, has added the Integra Telecom network, as a backbone provider for its infrastructure.
Erik Johnson, CTO of ServerPoint noted, ”In the last year alone we have seen the bandwidth needs of our clients grow almost exponentially, especially with the rapid proliferation of SaaS and streaming multimedia content. It has become more important than ever to boast a fully redundant network that can not only deliver faster speeds to more ISPs, but that can also absorb traffic spikes that have become ever more common.”
In adding Integra Telecom, ServerPoint is able to deliver lower latency connections to subscribers of Comcast, as a result of peering points between the two providers. Integra Telecom also eliminates network hops for a variety of other ISPs in North America and abroad. ServerPoint will continue to add new providers in the coming months as it seeks additional redundancy and bandwidth capacity.
ServerPoint offers a variety of unmanaged and managed hosting services. Virtual Private Servers start at $27.99/monthly and hosted on servers utilizing 8 Intel Xeon cores, 32GBs of RAM, 8-drive RAID 10 arrays and redundant power supplies. Windows plans include 2-hour backups, Silverlight, Windows Media Server, IIS, Active Server Pages, and SQL Server Express. Dedicated servers and shared hosting are also available.
In January, ServerPoint added a new gigabit uplink from XO Communications, providing additional network redundancy and capacity for its Las Vegas, Nev. datacenter facility. The addition of the new connection provides ServerPoint with new routes for data entering and leaving its network, allowing many visitors to connect to hosted sites at lower latency. With the added redundancy the connection provides, ServerPoint can also minimize the chance of any possible network downtime. ServerPoint hopes to increase its network capacity to 8-10 gigabits within a year.
Founded in 1998, ServerPoint is a recognized web hosting industry leader, providing an array of Shared, Reseller, Colocated, Dedicated and VPS hosting solutions to thousands of customers in over 100 countries. ServerPoint has been formerly known as APlusHosting.com.
