Vancouver, British Columbia – (The Hosting News) – June 9, 2006 – Application service provider, XPC Technology Services, has released its new virtual private server solution powered by Xen 3.0. The new service is designed to provide high speed VPS services to small and medium sized businesses under the brand name virtualprivateservers.ca.
The VPS service endeavors to fill the void between shared web hosting and dedicated hosting services by allowing clients to have root-level access without requiring physically dedicated servers. VPS hosting is predominantly used by businesses and individuals that need a hosting solution that provides dedicated server resources that cannot be handled using a traditional shared hosting environment.
Virtualprivateservers.ca VPS service is exclusively run using XenTM Powered paravirtualization technology which is an open-source virtual machine monitor, or hypervisor, developed by the University of Cambridge. Xen technology provides secure isolation, resource control, quality-of-service guarantees, and live migration of VPS servers. XPC Technology Services currently uses Xen3.0 and is a beta tester of the Xen Enterprise software. All of the VPS systems will be migrated to Xen enterprise upon its final production release slated for Sept 2006.
Shone Anstey, President of XPC Technology Services commented, ”Prior to launching our new VPS offering we researched a number of opensource and commercial VPS hosting products and in our opinion we feel that Xen is a better choice, financially, technically and it gives us an opportunity to support the open source community. We are quite impressed with Xen’s use of a technique called paravirtualization to achieve high scalability with near bare metal performance. As such we will be using XenTM Powered software exclusively through out our VPS hosting line up.”
John Bara, Vice President of Marketing at XenSource added, ”XenSource is very pleased XPC has chosen the Xen hypervisor to power the new hosting platform. Together, XPC and the Xen hypervisor offer a virtualization solution with benefits of high performance and security as an affordable, accessible service.”
