Herndon, Virginia – (The Hosting News) – January 16, 2008 – Virtualization software company, SWsoft, is powering a new line of virtual server hosting service plans by Internet web hosting company, located in the Benelux, Combell Group.
Frederik Poelman, Technical Director, Combell noted, ”With SWsoft Virtuozzo, our new virtual server offering delivers exceptional performance and results, and allows our customers the flexibility to work how they want to work. Virtuozzo’s server density ratio, performance response rates, and streamlined administrative management tools allow us to easily manage large numbers of virtual environments without affecting the customer experience.”
Virtuozzo partitions a physical server into multiple, isolated containers to provide customers with an economical alternative to dedicated servers. Combell’s new offering gives customers control over their own virtual environment through root access and empowers them to perform application installation, backup and reboot processes.
Combell’s services are built on a deep commitment to quality and innovation. As the only Belgian hosting company to achieve ISO 9001:2000 certification and an early adopter of the software-as-a-service (SaaS) business model, Combell keeps the customer at the center of its decision-making. Security, customer issue rates and ease of use were key criteria for selecting Virtuozzo to fuel its virtual server offerings.
Nils Hueneke, Hosting Europe, SWsoft added, ”We are pleased that Combell GROUP has chosen Virtuozzo to power its new virtual sever offering. Combell and its customers will benefit from our ongoing Open Fusion technology initiative to advance an open platform for hosting, as well as a commitment to quality and innovation that matches their own.”
