Fasthosts Debuts Virtual Server Range

(Ping! Zine) – Fasthosts Internet Inc., (www.fasthosts.com), a leading reseller web hosting provider, today announced a new range of virtual servers that combine high-speed performance, scalability and resource monitoring. Designed to meet the various needs of businesses and their customers, the user can configure and adjust the server’s RAM, CPU, disk space, and IP addresses as needed. The new Virtual Private Servers (VPS) deliver dedicated resources, the latest Windows 2008 R2 operating system, and full remote access and resource monitoring. Fasthosts has also recently launched a virtual storage solution and Linux operating system for their new line of VPS.

Fasthosts’ VPS are based on Microsoft Dynamic Data Center architecture, providing users with dedicated resources that they can easily adapt to upgrade or reconfigure the server’s core settings without losing data or functionality. Users can choose from five basic configurations or custom design a server that best suits their IT needs. All virtual server packages benefit from 100Mbps of connectivity, unlimited bandwidth, and can be purchased with a choice of payment options. A custom-built VPS will enable users to specify the server power required, and ensure they only pay for the resources they need. They can subsequently upgrade their server at any time, either on a permanent or temporary basis, giving them the power & flexibility of Cloud computing.

All servers are compatible with Windows Microsoft and Linux operating systems, and are equipped with Intel Xeon Quad-Core processors and dedicated RAM. Fasthosts also allows for full admin access and complete redundancy with all of their virtual servers. To help users accurately track server statistics, Fasthosts also provides free Resource Monitoring via the user Control Panel which allows users to monitor CPU, RAM, disk space, and network usage in real-time.

The launch of Fasthosts’ virtual solutions comes on the heels of the company’s selection as a finalist for the worldwide Microsoft Partner Awards. Fasthosts has been nominated in the Hosting Solutions Partner of the Year award category.

Steve Holford, CMO Fasthosts Internet, said, “As a long-standing expert for Microsoft web hosting, we have taken our time to invest in and develop a range of virtual servers that deliver the performance and strength typically only seen with dedicated server hardware. Microsoft Hyper-V is well-suited to our strong network and connectivity. For even the most demanding professional users, we expect virtual servers to be a popular choice.”

A secure online storage solution is Fasthosts’ latest addition to its line of virtual services. Scalable and remotely accessible via a Web browser or a mapped desktop drive, it is well-suited to meet business needs for off-site file storage at an affordable price point. Also offered with the storage option is a basic file sharing service. The amount of storage space can be increased on demand to a capacity up to 2TB, all of which is backed up automatically and encrypted over SSL in Fasthosts’ secure data center. Virtualized solutions provide greater flexibility and efficiency for businesses, especially when combined with the connectivity and unlimited bandwidth offered by Fasthosts.
