San Jose, California – (The Hosting News) – June 21, 2006 – HostMysite.com, Emulex and BSG have become customers of Pillar Data Systems storage solutions company.
Brenda Zawatski, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing at Pillar Data Systems commented, ”Enterprise class storage does not have to come at an unreasonable cost or a sacrifice to manageability, ease-of-use or performance. HostMysite.com, Emulex and BSG are great examples of companies that have turned to Pillar as their storage partner of choice to simplify, consolidate and save on their storage investments.”
For HostMysite.com, a leading web hosting provider and Pillar’s 101st customer, the Pillar Axiom Storage System will be used to help manage the company’s aggressive growth plans in rebuilding its current SAN infrastructure and provide a robust and enterprise level storage solution to its managed dedicated server customers. HostMySite.com’s developer-friendly Linux plans, which are already popular among the open-source community, include everything necessary for personal and small to large business websites. The new entry-level $2.95 Linux plan provides the ideal amount of disk space and features for those who need a simple solution or are just starting out on the web. The more robust Linux plans feature powerful programming support and are available with ColdFusion or the newly-added Ruby on Rails. All of the Web hostâ€™s Linux plans now include PHP 5 support, and customers have the option to toggle between PHP 4 and PHP 5 easily through a web-based control panel.
Neil Heuer, Co-Founder and CTO at HostMysite.com added, ”With more than 65,000 sites hosted worldwide and an average of 5.5 Terabytes of new data to back up each and every month, we needed a storage solution that could handle our rigorous performance requirements, was easy to manage and wasn’t too expensive. As we’ve gotten to know Pillar, we realized there were many similarities in the way Pillar and Hostmysite.com have grown our businesses over time. For us, we founded our company on unwavering customer service and support. The way in which Pillar has addressed our storage needs has convinced us we share similar service philosophies.”
For Emulex Corporation, the most trusted name in storage networking connectivity and 102nd customer, the Pillar Axiom Storage System is used in the Design Verification Group for testing and interoperability.
Howard Ross, Vice President of Engineering at Emulex added, ”We test across multiple switch, O/S and server environments and it’s important to make sure our products interoperate flawlessly. Pillar Data Systems is a significant member of the storage community and we want to make sure there are no issues. The only regret I have is that we didn’t get our order in sooner so we could have been honored as the 100th customer.”
Nick Gerard, CEO at BSG, the IT managed services company offered, ”We chose the Pillar Axiom to host our Microsoft Exchange Managed Service offering because it’s resilient, highly scalable and cost effective. The tiered storage capability enables us to provide efficient data management services for our clients without the usual overhead in systems administration and capital expenditure. With over 100 customers, Pillar’s track record made the decision simple, I’m optimistic that this is not just a technology purchase but the start of a long-term partnership.”
Zawatski added, ”We’re extremely pleased by the customer reaction to date, and believe that Pillar will continued as the industry’s fastest-growing storage platform, seamlessly accommodating both SAN and NAS environments and delivering unprecedented value across multiple applications, to a wide range of industries throughout the world.”
