AYKsolutions Announces Linux Mint Operating System Sponsorship

July 20, 2011 by · Comments Off on AYKsolutions Announces Linux Mint Operating System Sponsorship 

Hosting ServicesSchenectady, NY – AYKsolutions, a New York-based market leader in the field of dedicated server hosting, shared hosting, and virtual private server (VPS) hosting, announced today a generous new sponsorship plan to support the ongoing growth of Linux Mint operating system. AYKsolutions is happy to encourage further development within the Linux community and hopes to help Linux Mint reach as many users as possible.

“Linux Mint is a great, free, and actively supported operating system that is easy to use and light on resources,” says Artyom Khmelnitsky, President of AYKsolutions. “With the popularity of the Linux operating system growing at an incredible rate, we are proud to offer two servers at our Denver data center facility, which Linux Mint currently uses for its repositories. This is an exceptional opportunity for us to give something back to the Linux community that we depend on so heavily in the hosting industry, and we are excited to be involved.”

Started in 2006, Linux Mint is a free Linux based operating system distribution that boasts flexibility, responsiveness, and a wide range of supported software packages. Linux Mint is the second most popular Linux variant in the world and the fourth most popular operating system overall, after Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OS, and Canonical’s Ubuntu. Distinctively, Linux Mint offers centralized software sources in a similar style to the Apple App Store and the Android Marketplace, allowing Linux Mint’s users to easily browse, download, and install new software as well as application updates. As a direct result of this centralized approach and stunning growth in popularity, Linux Mint now requires a “best of breed” dedicated hosting solution to cater to its users, provided by AYKsolutions.

“With millions of users and a significant increase in our user base this year, our existing servers in Germany simply could not handle the amount of data needed to serve our users efficiently,” says Clement Lefebvre, Founder of Linux Mint. “When thousands of users hit the same server at exactly the same time, you need not only a server that can handle the processing of the information with RAM and CPU, but also, most importantly, a server that can output that much information at a time. The servers provided to us by AYKsolutions respectively serve 100Mb and 1Gb of data per second, enabling us to meet the ever increasing demands of new and existing Linux Mint users.”

There are many varied elements that can have an impact on the overall performance of a web hosting service, and it is common to find a service range that excels within one area but falls short elsewhere. For example, on hosting accounts that provide incredible connectivity features within a facility, a strict bandwidth restriction may be imposed to limit day-to-day usage. Linux Mint requires a dedicated server hosting solution with consistently high performance across all aspects of the hardware. AYKsolutions currently offers competitive hosting services in ten data centers worldwide, with disk space of up to four 1.5TB hard drives, RAM of up to 128GB, and 10Mbps/100Mbps/1Gbps dedicated uplink. This incredible specification is offered with unmetered bandwidth, allowing customers like Linux Mint to benefit from the full capacity of their hardware without the fear of usage restrictions.

“One of the most valuable aspects of the servers provided to us by AYKsolutions is unmetered bandwidth,” says Linux Mint’s Lefebvre. “This means that we can focus on improving our operating system, enjoy the benefits of its success, and see our user base grow even more without having to worry about not being able to serve them.”

“AYKsolutions is honored to be one of the core server providers for Linux Mint,” adds Khmelnitsky. “Without leaders such as Mr. Lefebvre, there would not be the leaps with open source distributions that we see here today. AYKsolutions will continue to support and work together with Linux Mint for as long as necessary.”

By offering the unrivalled power of unmetered dedicated server hosting to these key members of the Linux community, AYKsolutions is demonstrating an ongoing commitment to the development of operating system technology that makes Linux computing accessible. With this new partnership, set to become a long-term arrangement, both Linux Mint and AYKsolutions can continue to be leading forces in the growth of the web hosting and IT industry.
