|For Immediate Release|
Singapore - September 19, 2001 - SWsoft, an advanced server technology company, today announced that hosting service providers (HSPs) can find path to profitability with HSPcomplete, a hosting solution that provides a ready to run hosting business out-of-the-box (or that automates the entire hosting business). Our value proposition takes into account the growing concerns among hosting service providers that need to increase revenue, cut costs and add new customers if they want to survive in an increasingly competitive environment. For this reason, SWsoft is offering a complete solution, based on Virtuozzo's technology, that simplifies and automates the hosting business by providing HSPs with a scalable, manageable and efficient infrastructure. The solution is offered on Dell's Intel-based PowerEdge 8450 server. Summit Strategies predicts the total hosting market will grow from $1 billion in 1999 to between $14 billion and $19 billion in 2003, while IDC expects shared and dedicated hosting revenues in Asia Pacific to grow from nearly $1.75 billion in 2001 to approximately $4 billion by 2002.
"Despite the glowing predictions and successes of the hosting industry, data centers are still looking for underlying hosting infrastructures that increase profitability while growing their customer base and decreasing ongoing operational costs," said Serguei Beloussov, founder and chief executive officer of SWsoft. "We have chosen a high-performance infrastructure from Dell and Intel, and we expect our solution to offer competitive business opportunities to the Asian hosting market. Hosting service providers can manage hundreds of customers with their own full-featured virtual private servers (Virtual Environments) sharing a single physical server at a lower cost than other options."
"An increasing number of customers around the world, including SWsoft, are leveraging the advantages of industry-standard technology to meet their enterprise infrastructure needs," said Amit Midha, director of marketing and business development at Dell Asia Pacific. "SWsoft has found Dell PowerEdge servers offer them the performance, reliability, availability and scalability for their hosting solutions."
"The Pentium III Xeon processor delivers the performance, scalability and availability that leading hosting service providers are demanding today," said Lai Yit Loong, Singapore Country Manager for Intel Technology Asia.
"With a remarkable backbone infrastructure combining HSPcomplete, Dell PowerEdge servers and Pentium® III Xeon processors for ultimate scalability, hosting service providers can offer a cost-effective service from shared Web hosting to cluster configurations," said Alex Goncharvov, deputy director of business development, SWsoft.
