Centennial, Colorado – (The Hosting News) – January 9, 2007 –
Web hosting and managed services firm, Verio, has unveiled its 360-degree Managed Private Server Version 2 (MPS v2), including a dedicated server solution, with features such as proactive security patches, operating system updates and pre-installed applications.
Verio’s Managed Private Server solution, was developed to provide a fully-managed hosting solution for midsized companies and solution providers with more complex, web-reliant businesses and sites, Based on the FreeBSD operating system, the solution combines server hardware, software and technical support in a fully-managed and dedicated service. Also new to Verio’s line of offerings is the MPS Basic, which gives customers a managed solution at a lower price point, making the transition from simpler shared and virtual solutions to dedicated hosting an easier, more financially feasible progression. MPS bundles enterprise-level hardware, a highly secure managed hosting platform, and managed services into one product for added power and performance.
Verio’s product includes unlimited support and administrator services. Businesses have indicated a strong preference for this type of upfront and transparent pricing as they assess their choices, and suggest they frequently make decisions based on the quality and caliber of a provider’s support team.
According to the companu, Verio’s Managed Private Server solutions are designed to support heavily web reliant businesses, that depend on web site and infrastructure, which have a major impact on a company’s ability to conduct business and generate revenue. These customers often have a core business focus in application development, site design and marketing, ecommerce or online information and transactions. As a business grows, it often also requires a more advanced web site that can offer customers higher-value functionality. Businesses however don’t necessarily increase their own technical expertise, and often depend on a managed services provider for this. The MPS tackles the business community’s steadily growing need for more managed technology solutions that solve real business problems.
Jim Smith, Managing Director at Blarneystone, a web design and development provider for businesses remarked, ”My clients demand the highest level of service and speed, and with Verio’s MPS, I have the confidence to promote my premium services and build my business. I’m able to demo my web site portfolio to new customer prospects with full confidence that there will be no slowdowns or service interruptions.”’
