Июл, 2010 : SiteGround Selects The Planet Server Cloud


theplanet.com логотипИюль 26, 2010 - SiteGround selects the company's Server Cloud as the new standard for its cloud offering.

The Planet, a privately held dedicated hosting company, today announced that SiteGround, a web hosting provider and one of its largest reseller partners, has selected the its Server Cloud as the new standard for its cloud offering.

According to the company, its Server Cloud provides a broad range of features for customers looking to expand their hosting profile:
  • Dedicated Resources: All resources for the Server Cloud are 100% guaranteed. Customers receive completely dedicated CPU, RAM, storage and network capacity, which ensures performance isn't negatively affected by another customer's usage.
  • Sun SAN Backend: The Server Cloud is powered by a Sun Storage Area Network (SAN). Many cloud solutions operate on local disks from the host server, leaving customers vulnerable to hardware failures that can result in down time and even data loss. Server Cloud is always available, since computing and storage resources are separate and independent. In the event of a complete host server failure, data is always protected.
  • Seamless, Rapid CPU, RAM Upgrades: Customers buy only what they require to get started and grow their performance seamlessly as demand expands. A single system reboot from the server host recognizes any added resources.
  • Enterprise-Grade Infrastructure: The Server Cloud is powered by the latest technologies. From the Sun Microsystems SAN, to network gear supplied by Juniper and Cisco, and Dell servers equipped with Intel's fast Nehalem processors, the company has developed this robust platform to be resilient under the most difficult loads.
  • Operating System Support: Customers can select operating system support from both Linux and Windows platforms, including Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • Managed Services: The company offers a full array of service upgrades, including managed server monitoring and remediation, server security management and managed backup.
  • Next-Generation Virtualization: The company built its Server Cloud on the Linux Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) Hypervisor, the primary platform supported by both The Linux Foundation and the top Linux distributions, including Canonical's Ubuntu and Red Hat. KVM supports the latest virtualization technologies, including live migration, RAM de-duplication, para-virtualized storage and network capabilities, which combine stellar performance and efficiency. While other offerings require operating system (OS) modifications, KVM does not. Customers run unaltered/native versions of their chosen OS without any requirement for development modifications. As a result, they benefit from better security since new patches and updates are immediately available without the requirement for load development intervention.
The company adds that more information about its Server Cloud can be found at http://www.theplanet.com/cloud-hosting/.

"Server Cloud was expressly designed for our existing customers, with a platform that's purpose-built for web-based businesses," said Carl Meadows, Senior Product Manager for Cloud Services with The Planet. "For resellers like SiteGround, their customers operate websites that depend on platform stability. They've got to be up and running around the clock, providing the performance guarantees that keep their customers coming back."

"We were early beta participants in The Planet's Server Cloud testing, which provided us with opportunities to offer feedback on the platform," said Tenko Nikolov, CEO of SiteGround. "Our customers rely on us to provide them with the best options to support their businesses, so we've thoroughly evaluated cloud options on the market. We were looking for pricing predictability and ample bandwidth allocations, in a no-surprises package for our customers. The Planet Server Cloud behaves like a dedicated server by guaranteeing our fair share of space, traffic and CPU, at a cheaper cost. It's great for small and big sites that want to cut costs while at the same time get a reliable service."
