Today, SWsoft, the established leader in hosting automation and server virtualization software, announced the availability of the controlled release for Virtuozzo for Windows, a unique server virtualization solution that creates multiple isolated Virtual Private Servers (VPSs) on a single physical server to share hardware, software licenses and management with maximum possible efficiency. The Planet (www.theplanet.com), a Dallas-based global provider of managed hosting and value-added data center services with over 25,000 servers and AMEN (www.amen.fr), a subsidiary of VIA NET.WORKS (Nasdaq: VNWI; EASE) and one of EuropeÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s fastest growing service providers, are among the first Web hosting service providers to deploy Virtuozzo for Windows VPS.
“The Linux Virtuozzo powered virtual private servers have been an extremely effective and highly demanded new dedicated server option for many of our customers,” said Nathan Day, Vice President Product Development, The Planet. “We are excited to be among the first service providers worldwide to offer SWsoftÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s powerful Virtuozzo for Windows VPS solution that incorporates the same level of features and support that have made our VPS solution so popular.”
“We are hearing more and more from customers that due to our low overhead, efficiency and manageability, Virtuozzo is the only true VPS solution available for hosting service providers,” said Serguei Beloussov, CEO, SWsoft. “Virtuozzo for Windows incorporates the same API and interface with all of the proven capabilities of Virtuozzo for Linux on the Windows platform. Virtuozzo also provides advanced resource management, isolation, security and a full set of comprehensive management tools.”
“We have used the combination of SWsoftÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Plesk and Virtuozzo for Linux to offer a tightly integrated and easy to use solution that includes thousands of expected and proven features,” said Dick Theunissen, President of Amen. “Immediately after we launched the Linux version in June, our customers started inquiring about the release and support of a Windows version of Virtuozzo. SWsoft has produced yet another solid product that will help us attract more customers and more revenue.”
“Virtuozzo uniquely provides for server virtualization above the OS level, which provides for many distinct advantages”, says Scott Donahue, vice president of Tier1 Research. “This approach leverages a single OS to provide a better solution for running multiple virtual servers with less overhead, better performance, easier manageability, and a lower deployment cost.”
