Virtuozzo and Plesk Integration Enables Increased Profits; More Functionality than Shared Hosting and More Affordable than Dedicated Offerings
London, UK and Herndon, VA — August 26, 2004 – In a partnership between two highly influential organizations within the hosting industry - Hostway U.K., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Hostway Corporation and one of the top 5 hosting companies in the world - and SWsoft, the established leader in hosting automation and server virtualization software, have today teamed up to enable Hostway to deliver a Virtual Private Server solution based SWsoft’s Virtuozzo technology that successfully integrates systems developed by both companies.
“We supply shared hosting and managed dedicated servers to over 300,000 consumers and enterprises worldwide and invest intensively in the development of our own proprietary infrastructure, tools and software,” said Rob Lovell, CEO of Hostway U.K. “We largely attribute our success as a company to our exceptional core internal development efforts, but SWsoft opened our eyes to an entirely new VPS offering that we have been able to build on top of using Virtuozzo’s flexible architecture. Combined with SWsoft’s Plesk control panel software, the platform has enabled us to offer dedicated-like performance at a fraction of the cost, as well as expand our product range with a middle ground for Resellers, Developers and Gamers.”
“VPS offerings are increasingly becoming mainstream, and more hosting providers are relying on Virtuozzo to diversify their product portfolio because it provides more value than a dedicated server and is more cost effective for both vendors and end users alike,” said Kurt Daniel, director of marketing, SWsoft. “Known for having strong internal development capabilities, Hostway decided to select our technology after rigorous testing in order to expand its offering and broaden their revenues with an integrated VPS/Plesk hosting solution.”
