Centennial, Colorado – (The Hosting News) – March 20, 2007 –
Web hosting and managed services firm, Verio, has premiered its Linux Test Drive program, for companies and developers that desire hosting services on the open source platform.
As part of a new promotional campaign that focuses on the benefits of open source and Linux, users can test drive Verio’s Linux Virtual Private Server (VPS) service free of charge. The Linux Test Drive will allow businesses, professional developers, and VARs to explore for the first time how their company can best leverage Verio’s Linux-based VPS. Whether it’s for a hosted e-commerce Web site, a custom development environment, a corporate intranet, management of an email system, or even hosting a blog or podcast, the Linux Test Drive gives users the opportunity to take advantage of Verio’s popular VPS services based on the Linux platform. The account preview is for a limited time only.
Linux VPS also gives users access to the vinstall tool and a software library, enabling them to quickly deploy a number of preconfigured applications on their virtual server. For example, Apache 2.2.3 comes installed on Linux VPS for faster performance, and PHP 5.1.5 provides support for popular technologies such as XML, SOAP and MySQL and others, as well as support for object oriented programming.
Verio’s Linux VPS solutions we developed to meet the individual requirements of multiple businesses by partitioning the resources of a single physical server to perform like a dedicated server, but without the hassle of managing hardware and software upgrades or security patch deployment. Verio’s Linux VPS gives businesses the control they want and need with advanced FairShare technology, better resource management and reduced cost, and includes live 24/7 technical support with administrator assistance.
Heather Boyer, Director of Product Management for Verio remarked, “We are excited about the possibilities that Linux and open source technologies offer in terms of business enablement, and are confident it is the best solution on the market for many companies. We’re giving businesses and developers the opportunity to test out our product for free so they can experience first-hand the power of choice and control that VPS delivers, from the extensive vinstall library of applications, to FairShare technology and root access granted to users.”
Businesses looking to host a custom development environment, a remote IT infrastructure or a web presence for the first time might be unsure which VPS solution is right for them. As the creator of VPS technology and a leader in the deployment of VPS offerings, Verio endeavors to provide customers with the VPS solution they need to help grow their business online. For example, a customer can begin using Verio’s Linux VPS to promote their business services online and later decide to enhance their site with ecommerce functionality as they expand their business online.
Linux VPS plans are available for purchase starting at $89.95 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.
