(The Hosting News) – OnApp has certified DedicatedNOW as an OnApp Cloud Service Provider, and announced a new partnership with the company to offer cloud hosting infrastructure as a service to web hosting providers. DedicatedNOW’s customized private cloud service includes servers, SAN storage and bandwidth, plus OnApp’s cloud management software, for a monthly fee. It offers web hosts a simple and affordable way to launch their own cloud hosting products without the capital investment and running costs associated with building their own cloud infrastructure.
“We’re very pleased that DedicatedNOW has received OnApp certification,” said Carlos Rego, MD and Chief Architect at OnApp. “There’s huge demand for cloud infrastructure among traditional web hosts. By evolving shared and dedicated hosting services to the cloud, they can make significant efficiency savings, generate higher margins and provide the flexibility and convenience their customers expect. With OnApp and DedicatedNOW, any web host can rea
lize these benefits, quickly and at low cost.”
DedicatedNOW has more than a decade’s experience of successful managed hosting service delivery. The Company’s recent merger with SolarVPS has enabled it to expand its virtualization knowledge and capabilities, which underpin its new private cloud service.
“We’re delighted to be recognized as a certified OnApp provider,” said Jason Silverglate, CEO, DedicatedNOW. “Cloud Hosting and Virtualization are a big part of who we are as a Company at this point and we’re thrilled about our new partnership with OnApp.”
