Herndon, VA, December 22, 2003- SWsoft, Inc., the leader in hosting
automation and enterprise server software, today announced that WebCentral,
Australia’s largest Web hosting company, has selected Virtuozzo virtualization
technology to extend its service offerings and introduce its new Virtual
Dedicated Server (VDS) product. WebCentral is a premier Web hosting company
offering shared, dedicated and enterprise-grade solutions to customers around
the globe. WebCentral currently hosts more than 60,000 Web sites and domains for
corporations, government organizations and small to medium-size businesses.
Powered by Virtuozzo, WebCentralÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s VDS solution will give customers an
affordable, basic dedicated hosting platform or high-performance shared hosting
solution that can be set up and provisioned very quickly.
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œIn todayÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s hosting industry, companies must continue to push the envelope and
give their customers, high-quality, low-cost solutions that make running their
businesses easier,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â said Lloyd Ernst, CEO of WebCentral. ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œBy utilizing SWsoftÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s
expertise and experience in virtualization technology, we are able to give our
customers access to a VDS environment that has the same look and feel of a
dedicated Linux server, at a fraction of the cost.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
WebCentralÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s VDS solutions, powered by SWsoftÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Virtuozzo, allow each Web site
to operate independently from all other sites on the same physical machine.
SWsoftÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Virtuozzo technology utilizes an isolated files directory providing
autonomy and independent, manageable Quality of Service (QoS) controls for each
customerÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Web site. WebCentralÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s VDS customers have QoS standards in place to
help to ensure customers receive committed performance levels.
WebCentralÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s VDS solution gives users a low committed resource rate and a large
burst rate. This means that resources are pooled together and evenly distributed
when customer demands are equal but unused resources are available for anyone to
use when high demand is required. WebCentralÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s VDS product will give clients
full control over their environment, including:
-Independent file structure
-Ability to install applications
-Multi-layered security features
-Ability to host multiple domains
