Laguna Beach, California – (The Hosting News) – December 13, 2007 – Rackmount server provider, eRacks Open Source Systems, has unveiled its new dedicated hosting and colocation services division, located in multiple Tier 1 datacenters in Silicon Valley, California.
Joseph Wolff, CEO and Founder of eRacks offered, ”We have been offering customized hosting and colocation services for several years, and we are pleased to formally offer these services under the eRacks Hosting name. This will position us to continue expanding in this space without sacrificing the personalized support our customers expect.”
eRacks has previously offered hosting and colocation to a select group of customers. Demand for these services has risen sharply in recent years, as organizations have embraced the idea of outsourcing network operations due to concerns of security, reliability, and cost-effectiveness. In response, eRacks has decided to extend and formalize its offerings, by creating eRacks Hosting, and launching an e-commerce website www.eRacksHosting.com.
eRacks Hosting offers service in 3 levels: Standard, Professional and Enterprise, in addition to its customized packages. Base prices start at $129 monthly for a Core 2 Duo system (Standard plan). Dual-core (Professional plan) and quad-core systems (Enterprise plan) are also available. Service can be billed monthly, or yearly at a substantial discount. eRacks has long been an enthusiastic advocate of open source solutions, and offers systems configured with the clients’ choices of open source operating systems, including: Ubuntu Linux, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD, CentOS, Fedora, Debian, Red Hat Linux, SuSE Linux, and others. eRacks Hosting offers additional services, including installation and configuration of a set of virtualized servers on the client’s dedicated server, as well as software development services. In addition, CPUs, hard drives and memory can be upgraded from the base configuration, and other customization is available. Further details can be found at www.eRacksHosting.com, where customers can explore their options and order directly online.
eRacks Hosting technical staff has extensive experience with both customization and virtualization. A recent project with Libre Hosting involved the development of a web-based virtualization infrastructure based on the Open Source Kernel Virtual Machine (KVM), which is built into the Linux kernel. Mr. Wolff added, ”We think that our customers will be delighted by how easy and economical it is to set themselves up with one of our complete hosting plans through eRacksHosting.com. And as always, the eRacks personalized service and support is still there for those who require additional consulting or customization.”
eRacks Open Source Systems is a premier provider of open source solutions and features its own rackmount servers, desktops and laptops, as well as a wide array of services including open source enterprise migration, security, and network architecture design. eRacks offers a wide choice of operating systems and open source applications configured on its products, ensuring hardware compatibility and saving the customer valuable time in installation and configuration.
