Houston, Texas – (The Hosting News) – February 7, 2008 – Privately held dedicated web hosting company, The Planet, has debuted the launch of its newest RAM and free setup promotion, for a limited-time, offering double the memory on new server orders.
The Planet will also waive the $25 setup fee on new server orders, delivering twice the value during the five-day promotion. The offer is available through Feb. 8, 2008, or while limited promotional supplies last.
Urvish Vashi, Director of Product Management with The Planet noted, ”For customers with content-rich or e-commerce web sites, we’re offering even more value with their new server purchases.”
Earlier this month, The Planet appointed of Scott King as its new Senior Director, Data Center Operations, where he will be responsible for data center operations across the company’s six world-class data centers in Houston and Dallas. Mr. King will report to Mr. Treuting and brings to The Planet a broad range of experience in managing enterprise-class data centers and technical teams across multiple operating platforms and applications. He joins the company following an eight-year tenure with Data Return where he served in a number of increasingly responsible roles. Most recently, King directed a 106-person support-services organization that included management responsibilities for all server-side operational and network support, in addition to data centers and change administration. At Data Return, he also served as manager of quality assurance, manager of customer support and as a technical account manager. Previous experience includes work with Software Spectrum, where he served as a software engineer.
Recently, The Planet’s Vice President of Network Operations, Stan O. Barber, delivered an address at the 30th annual Pacific Telecommunications Council (PTC) Telecom with Vision tradeshow. Mr. Barber commented, ”As customers demand additional functionality, we will begin to see broader adoption of IPv6. There are no significantly large companies driving adoption, so we face a chicken-and-egg scenario that has plagued widespread deployment. While anyone can connect to IPv6 today using a tunnel broker, it is difficult to use such connections when driving traffic of any significant bandwidth. Having providers deliver IPv6 natively removes this bandwidth barrier and makes it possible for web sites, as an example, to deliver the same content with the same experience over IPv6 and IPv4.”
Ultimately, The Planet endeavors to provide:
- High levels of network capacity and speed to deliver peak performance
- Instant scalability to handle even the largest spikes in network traffic
- Parallel, redundant, multi-tiered network routing and switching architecture to assure reliability and stability
- Multiple layer network security that prevents Delayed Denial of Service (DDOS) attacks from harming businesses
- Knowledgeable experts with a passion for excellence and a commitment to operate the best networks in the business
The Planet is a leading provider of On Demand IT Infrastructure solutions, hosting over 22,000 small and medium size businesses and 3.1 million web sites worldwide, using the best choice of servers, software tools and support, backed by enhanced facilities and network connectivity.
