Louisville, Kentucky – (The Hosting News) – April 27, 2009 –
Global hosting solutions and services firm, Hosting.com’s cloud solution, CloudNine, will be available as a free trial following the launch of VMware vSphere 4.
VMware vSphere 4 is the industry’s first operating system for building the internal cloud, complementing the robust CloudNine solution, which is built on a standards-based architecture that includes the VMware platform.
CloudNine provides cloud hosting and Infrastructure-as-a-Service solutions to companies and organizations across all verticals and segments. CloudNine delivers virtually unlimited computing resources, a redundant infrastructure, outstanding flexibility and easy expandability on the reliable VMware platform.
As part of the VMware vCloud initiative, developers, IT professionals, SMBs and enterprises are invited to experience Cloud Computing firsthand with 30 days of complimentary cloud infrastructure from CloudNine. The cloud environment includes a dedicated pool of unlimited processing, memory, storage and networking resources with server root access, online customer management portal, Windows and Linux OS options and 24×7 technical support.
Jonathan Erwin, VP of Sales and Marketing for Hosting.com continued, ”VMware vSphere 4 is not only an exciting launch for VMware, but also for the entire virtualization and cloud computing communities. As part of the VMware vCloud initiative, the CloudNine trial offer will increase accessibility to cloud computing and hosting for companies of all sizes.”
As a VMware vCloud service provider, Hosting.com works closely with VMware and other manufacturers to deliver enterprise-level performance and reliability to every customer. Leveraging the VMware vSphere 4 platform, CloudNine is enterprise-ready and compatible with the applications that matter to businesses of all sizes. Hosting.com and VMware are working closely to bring customers the private cloud, which will allow clients to deploy workloads in the cloud environments, on or off premise, that best align to their business needs.
Aaron Hollobaugh, Hosting.com Marketing and Communications Director noted, ”Virtualization and VMware are revolutionizing the hosting industry, and that’s exactly why our relationship and this offer are needed in the marketplace today. Hosting companies have two choices — invest in and provide virtualized, clustered solutions to their clients, or watch the competition virtually swallow their revenues.”
With this special offer many barriers to cloud computing are reduced and in some cases eliminated. Cost is no longer a barrier to introduce an organization to the benefits of cloud hosting and computing. The dynamic CloudNine infrastructure recognizes a business’s evolving needs and reacts instantly to provide the most reliable and scalable solution. Hosting.com expects this offer to further lunge their offering into the forefront of cloud hosting solutions.
