Hosting.com Moves VPS Products To The Cloud – Introduces Cloud VPS and Cloud Dedicated

August 28, 2009 by  

Web Host ServicesDENVER, CO – Hosting.com, the first name in global managed hosting and colocation solutions, today announced that it is launching Cloud VPS, an enhanced version of its prior virtual private server (VPS) solutions. The new solution will provide customers with unprecedented elasticity and control of their VPS environments. Cloud VPS will be hypervisor-based, making the virtual machines independent from one another – a feature unavailable in most container-based VPS solutions.

Cloud VPS will provide customers with high availability, scalability and flexibility inherent to cloud infrastructures. Customers will have the ability to grow and easily migrate their Cloud VPS solutions to the more robust Cloud Enterprise and Cloud Dedicated solutions offered by Hosting.com. The company selected the VMware vSphere software to build this new cloud infrastructure. Hosting.com is in the process of moving all existing VPS clients to the Cloud VPS infrastructure.

“Hosting.com made the decision to move away from a container-based VPS platform to provide more flexibility and control from our customers,” noted Matt Ferrari, Hosting.com Director of Infrastructure Services. “Customer feedback and requests for a more dynamic offering that could easily scale or be migrated directly lead to the development of Cloud VPS.”

The transition to a cloud infrastructure allows Hosting.com to provide Cloud VPS at a reduced cost than traditional VPS solutions and provide clients with additional resources. The base package for the prior .Net VPS solution ($89.00/month) from Hosting.com provided 512 MB RAM, 10 GB of Virtual Disk Space, and 400 GB of monthly transfer. For $80.00/month, Cloud VPS will provide the same amount of RAM, 30 GB of Virtual Disk Space and 500 GB of monthly transfer.

Cloud VPS hosting plans are available for both Microsoft Windows and Linux at a fixed, monthly cost and can be customized based on a customer’s unique needs for space, bandwidth, and data management tools. Each plan includes preinstalled software, including ASP.NET, Adobe ColdFusion, and SQL Server on Windows and PHP, Perl, and MySQL on Linux. Additionally, Cloud VPS plans feature daily backups, 24x7x365 expert technical support, and a 100% network uptime guarantee.

“Cloud VPS will introduce many companies to cloud hosting due to its performance, functionality and pricing,” commented Fred Strelzoff, Hosting.com Cloud Product Manager. “Cloud hosting has become a viable alternative to managed and dedicated hosting – similarly, we believe Cloud VPS will change the expectations of VPS consumers.”

Hosting.com has also changed the name of its Cloud Private solution to Cloud Dedicated to more accurately describe the solution provided to customers – a single-tenant, clustered hardware environment. Private solutions are available on both Cloud Enterprise and Cloud Dedicated.
