With an impressive network of 600 servers operating from multiple data centers, UnitedHosting acknowledged that a reliable anti-spam solution was no longer optional, but it had become a critically important business function. Through significant in-house developments, SpamExperts has built a compelling package of e-mail security solutions, deployed in the Cloud or on Premises, simplifying management effort for the customer and lowering administration costs. With its state-of-the-art infrastructure in place, UnitedHosting decided to deploy the Local Cloud Incoming Filter on its hardware.
SpamExperts Local Cloud is fully clusterable, allowing one central management control server, and scaling up the number of filtering nodes as the number of filtered domains increases. Currently SpamExperts filters 65,000 domains for UnitedHosting and as this number grows, so does the size of the cluster, protecting all customers, without any limit of inboxes/users per domain!
