SWsoft Virtuozzo, Plesk and HSPcomplete to Enhance Prox's New VPS Offering
TOKYO, Japan, and HERNDON, Va., June 29, 2007 - SWsoft today announced that Prox System Design, a leading dedicated server hosting company in Japan, has selected SWsoft virtualization and automation software to enhance its virtual dedicated server service called “Dual Stream," available this month.
Prox System Design, an SWsoft Platinum Partner, uses SWsoft Virtuozzo operating system virtualization software to power its Virtual Private Server (VPS), which makes the system "virtually non-stop" by providing redundancy for the hosting system’s networking and hardware.
SWsoft Plesk control panel software helps Prox customers more easily manage their VPS due to greater integration with Virtuozzo through SWsoft’s OPEN FUSION technology initiative. Prox is also using the SWsoft HSPcomplete hosting automation solution to manage its hosting platforms.
"We chose SWsoft for its proven superior virtualization solutions that stand apart from others and provide the high availability necessary for Dual Stream, which is fully redundant and delivers excellent user manageability to match our unique operation configuration," said Takuya Sada, manager of system SI department, Prox System Design, Inc. "We also expect to implement additional SWsoft technology that will extend the virtualization solution."
"Prox is already highly-regarded in the dedicated server market for its high level of service and support," said Matthew Edmond, manager of business development, SWsoft Japan. "We will be working very closely with Prox going forward to continuously roll out new, leading-edge services that add value to their existing service offerings."
OPEN FUSION is an SWsoft technology initiative to improve integration among a wide range of systems, third-party applications and modules, and custom and in-house solutions. The OPEN FUSION platform enables optimized delivery of software-as-a-service (SaaS) and traditional hosting services to help independent software vendors (ISVs) and service providers take full advantage of new opportunities in the market.
About Dual Stream
Dual Stream is a virtual dedicated server service providing fully-redundant systems with high availability. Using a periodic "heartbeat," the system automatically switches to a standby server when an active server failure is detected, duplicating the server resource parameters set within the virtual environment. SAN Storage systems separate active and standby switches, with each port of redundant storage controllers connected to different switches. Also, Dual Stream provides full duplex redundant services duplicating all devices, including backbone networks to switches.
