Centennial, Colorado – (The Hosting News) – February 6, 2007 –
Web hosting and managed services firm, Verio, is offering its Linux Virtual Private Server (VPS) service, as part of its 360-degree Managed Servers suite of fully-managed hosting solutions.
The new Linux VPS, based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4–combines the best of open source technology, the stability of a true enterprise-class platform, and Verio’s vast virtualization expertise. Linux VPS delivers time-tested reliability, security, and flexibility while still delivering a cost-efficient hosting solution to small businesses and reseller partners, including Web developers and designers, independent software vendors (ISVs) and Linux enthusiasts.
Small businesses and resellers can leverage Verio Linux VPS in a variety of ways including supporting a corporate intranet, hosting test sites, managing an email system, launching and managing complex, transactional, high volume or ecommerce sites, or hosting a blog or podcast. Developers and ISVs may choose to use Linux VPS as a Linux development environment for the creation of custom applications.
According to the company, with a virtual hosting history firmly rooted in open source, Verio pioneered VPS technology more than 10 years ago, and is now leveraging its extensive virtualization experience to offer a fully managed Linux VPS. Like its predecessor based on FreeBSD, Linux VPS utilizes partitioning technology for dedicated-like server features. Linux VPS users enjoy full control of their virtual server with root access, as well as 24x7x365 live support, a full suite of managed services and the most popular applications at their disposal.
Businesses with little or no IT staff are freed from the day-to-day hassles of server maintenance and management since Verio experts fully support the virtual hosting solution with triple data backups, security patches and software updates. Linux VPS’s v-install tool gives users the freedom and flexibility to choose and easily install the applications that best suit their business needs.
Kiyoshi Maeda, President and CEO for Verio explained, “We designed our Linux virtual solution with Linux Web and application developers and businesses leveraging open source technology in mind. Linux VPS delivers the critical features required to effectively create a Linux-based custom application, including root access for full control of the development environment, fairshare technology for performance and access to the latest software. With the technical and server administrative support Verio provides, the Linux VPS offers another high performance option for today’s developers and businesses.”
Linux VPS plans are available for purchase immediately in both the United States and Asia Pacific regions, starting at $55.00 USD and are offered in 10 GB, 20 GB, and 40 GB configurations. All plans include unlimited email accounts and domain names, root access, and no charge on bandwidth transfers. Customers will also benefit from Verio’s around the clock technical support, which helps diagnose and answer problems for core and customer-installed applications.
