Denver, Colorado – (The Hosting News) – September 1, 2009 – Global managed hosting and colocation solutions firm, Hosting.com, is launching Cloud VPS, an enhanced version of its prior virtual private server (VPS) solutions.
Matt Ferrari, Director of Infrastructure Services at Hosting.com noted, ”Hosting.com made the decision to move away from a container-based VPS platform to provide more flexibility and control from our customers.Customer feedback and requests for a more dynamic offering that could easily scale or be migrated directly lead to the development of Cloud VPS.”
The new solution will provide customers with unprecedented elasticity and control of their VPS environments. Cloud VPS will be hypervisor-based, making the virtual machines independent from one another – a feature unavailable in most container-based VPS solutions.
Cloud VPS will provide customers with high availability, scalability and flexibility inherent to cloud infrastructures. Customers will have the ability to grow and easily migrate their Cloud VPS solutions to the more robust Cloud Enterprise and Cloud Dedicated solutions offered by Hosting.com. The company selected the VMware vSphere software to build this new cloud infrastructure. Hosting.com is in the process of moving all existing VPS clients to the Cloud VPS infrastructure.
The transition to a cloud infrastructure allows Hosting.com to provide Cloud VPS at a reduced cost than traditional VPS solutions and provide clients with additional resources. The base package for the prior .Net VPS solution ($89.00/month) from Hosting.com provided 512 MB RAM, 10 GB of Virtual Disk Space, and 400 GB of monthly transfer. For $80.00/month, Cloud VPS will provide the same amount of RAM, 30 GB of Virtual Disk Space and 500 GB of monthly transfer.
Cloud VPS hosting plans are available for both Microsoft Windows and Linux at a fixed, monthly cost and can be customized based on a customer’s unique needs for space, bandwidth, and data management tools. Each plan includes preinstalled software, including ASP.NET, Adobe ColdFusion, and SQL Server on Windows and PHP, Perl, and MySQL on Linux. Additionally, Cloud VPS plans feature daily backups, 24x7x365 expert technical support, and a 100% network uptime guarantee.
Fred Strelzoff, Cloud Product Manager at Hosting.com remarked, ”Cloud VPS will introduce many companies to cloud hosting due to its performance, functionality and pricing. Cloud hosting has become a viable alternative to managed and dedicated hosting – similarly, we believe Cloud VPS will change the expectations of VPS consumers.”
Hosting.com has also changed the name of its Cloud Private solution to Cloud Dedicated to more accurately describe the solution provided to customers – a single-tenant, clustered hardware environment. Private solutions are available on both Cloud Enterprise and Cloud Dedicated.
Hosting.com provides enterprise colocation, cloud computing, dedicated hosting, managed hosting, disaster recovery, and business continuance services to a global customer base demanding a high level of security, reliability, and responsiveness. Hosting.com monitors, manages, and enhances the web-based platforms of Web 2.0 companies, software as a service (SaaS) providers, content distribution networks (CDN), and medium to large enterprises whose Web presence is crucial and high availability mandatory.
