Web Hosting Services – Leeds,UK: Followed by the news about enhancement to their Windows VPS services, UK web hosting company Webhosting.uk.com (WHUK) has today announced the launch of Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) and Solid State Drive (SSD) disk options with VMware cloud services. The enhancement to the service will ensure data transfer at faster speeds and enhance the overall performance of the product.
According to the company, the inclusion of an option to choose between SSD and SAS would help users who host websites or applications that involve transfer of a large volume of data. This enhancement is expected to deliver better performance to users that run large websites such as blogs, eCommerce web stores, web design websites that hold a large database of galleries, social networking sites, large forums etc. The I/O transfer rate of SSDs is much higher in comparison to SATA or even SAS, while SAS offers an upward migration path for parallel SCSI applications combined with high performance, high reliability enterprise systems.
“We’ve been rigorously testing our Cloud platform with SAS and SSD drives for quite some time now, and we are happy to say that it has resulted really well, we must say. It is after which we decided to offer these highly reliable disk alternatives on our VMware Cloud platform to users,” Business Development Manager at WHUK, Barbara Jones, said in a statement. “Considering the increasing demand for Cloud services, it was necessary for us as a company to go a step beyond and offer something more than reliable service to our consumers. It is out of our own need that we could deliver such a service to customers.”
WHUK’s SSD Cloud is available at an additional cost of £25.00 GBP while SAS is available at £3.00 GBP in-addition to the base cost. Combined with this offering is 20 GB Free R1Soft Backup Space with VMware Cloud.
