San Jose, California – (The Hosting News) – May 14, 2007 – A new diskless server system, has been developed for the web hosting platform, by unified storage services firm, BlueArc Corporation, designed to deliver enhanced reliability, performance and scalability.
The new Titan 2000 series solution, has been chosen by dedicated hosting solutions provider, Ultraspeed, to expand its business and handle rapidly growing storage needs. With BlueArc’s Titan 2000 technology, it is anticipated that Ultraspeed will be able to offer users a significantly more reliable and easy to manage hosting experience with unprecedented performance.
Jordan Gross, Commercial Director of Ultraspeed remarked, ”We wanted to invest in a solution that would give us the most value and enable us to scale with our growing customer base without sacrificing the quality of our service at any step along the way. With Titan 2000, we’ve deployed a solution for the long haul. BlueArc was able to offer us extremely impressive performance, reduced management costs and future-proof scalability.”
Ultraspeed offers dedicated and managed servers for all types of customers, ranging from some of the largest UK government agencies and online Internet portals, to smaller Internet design firms that maintain web sites for clients. Ultraspeed prides itself on delivering highly nimble and personal services and maintaining that level of quality in its offering even while continuing to grow at a rapid pace was critical to its decision to evolve its platform from a disk-based architecture to one built on network attached storage. After looking into several options, the company chose BlueArc’s Titan 2000.
As a result of its integration of the Titan 2000, Ultraspeed has reported a dramatic reduction in the hours its staff spends on reloading and updating its system. The company’s primarily Windows servers are able to boot directly from the Titan without a hard drive, further freeing up time for staff to deliver value-added interactions with both new and existing clients. By building out its service offering with BlueArc, Ultraspeed is now cost-effectively growing and continuing to reach ever more impressive levels of reliability and almost eliminating user downtime.
Steve Daheb, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for BlueArc added, ”Ultraspeed understands that in the web hosting business, availability, reliability and affordability are a must for top-notch customer experience and they are aggressively delivering on these critical requirements. We’re extremely pleased that, as many other Internet services customers have, Ultraspeed chose Titan as the building block for its diskless server platform and we’re looking forward to fueling the company’s growth for years to come.”
