Herndon, Virginia – (The Hosting News) – June 22, 2007 – Server virtualization firm, SWsoft, has been chosen by web hosting provider, FORPSI, in the Czech Republic, to power its new Virtual Server offerings. Using SWsoft’s Virtuozzo virtualization software, the company will create multiple, isolated virtual private server environments.
FORPSI’s desire to create the new single physical server and operating systems, were predicated on its intention to make the most efficient use of hardware, software and other resources. FORPSI Virtual Servers provide a complete range of traditional web hosting services, including administration of websites, FTP, DNS, e-mail and databases.
Marketa Gsollhoferova, Sales Manager at FORPSI offered, ”Our Virtual Servers provide a range of web hosting services for customers who want more than a simple web hosting service, but donâ€™t need an independent server. SWsoft Virtuozzo helped us bridge the gap between traditional web hosting and dedicated server hosting to meet customer demand for new, affordable hosting services.”
FORPSI has two Virtual Server offerings: Basic and Professional. The Basic server provides a control panel for 10 domain names with 1 Mbps of guaranteed bandwidth and 3 GB disk storage. The Professional server includes 30 domain names with 2 Mbps of bandwidth and 15 GB of disk storage. Both servers are available for Windows or Linux. Prices start at 300 Czech crowns/month (approximately US$14).
Soeren von Varchmin, Managing Director for SWsoft’s European and Asian Operations added, ”SWsoft is excited to extend the benefits of Virtuozzo to FORPSIâ€™s customers in the Czech and Slovakian markets. Virtuozzo provides a cost-efficient solution that will allow FORPSI to deliver more hosting services with minimal resources and cost, and take advantage of improved integration resulting from our ongoing OPEN FUSION initiative.”
