Small and Medium-Sized Businesses can now Take Advantage of VPS Web Hosting, the latest Addition to Network Solutions’ Suite of Web-related Services
HERNDON, Va., October 22, 2007 — Small and medium-sized businesses who need control over their web hosting, don’t want to maintain their own servers and other equipment in-house, and need to manage costs can now find a solution with Network Solutions new Virtual Private Server (VPS) Web Hosting powered by SWsoft Virtuozzo virtualization software. Network Solutions now offers affordable VPS packages loaded with industry-leading software and backed by Network Solutions award-winning 24/7 customer support.
VPS is a form of hosting that partitions one physical server into multiple "virtual" servers. Each virtual server is fully isolated, can run its own operating system and can be independently rebooted. Unlike standard shared hosting where hundreds of users share a server, VPS hosting provides advanced website developers the access, functionality, speed and security of a dedicated server without the expensive price tag or excessive responsibility.
"Network Solutions is pleased to announce that we are offering our advanced and tech-savvy users the option to use our new VPS hosting packages," says Jeff Grosman, senior vice president of Product Marketing and Management, Network Solutions. "The new Network Solutions Virtual Private Server Web Hosting packages provide growing or cost-conscious customers a flexible and powerful solution that is affordable and yet still offers an outstanding value for their business. Customers can choose the level of service that best suits their business. The standard customer support that comes with all of our VPS packages includes assistance with server-related issues, something most competitors do not offer."
"SWsoft Virtuozzo offers the highest levels of density, performance and manageability, making it the best virtualization solution for Network Solutions' customers," said Serguei Beloussov, CEO of SWsoft. "By selecting Virtuozzo, Network Solutions and its customers will benefit from ongoing technology innovation through our Open Fusion initiative, which will allow them to tap into new business opportunities like software as a service."
VPS hosting is for customers that require total control over their hosting solution, including root access and reboot capabilities. The solution is also ideal for customers who need to maintain separate operating systems and run and manage multiple websites that are independent from one another.
Virtuozzo meets these requirements by dynamically partitioning a single Windows or Linux operating system instance into highly efficient and scalable virtual environments or "containers". Virtuozzo is the only virtualization solution that enables dozens to hundreds of containers to immediately and automatically leverage real hardware, resulting in exceptional efficiency, while maintaining strict isolation for each user environment.
