(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – 1&1, Europe’s leading web hosting provider (www.1and1.co.uk), today offers four additional pre-configured packages of its 1&1 Cloud Server. In addition to the already established packages FLEX, M, L and XL, small and medium-sized enterprises, start-ups, value added resellers, developers and agencies now benefit from a more favourable entry price and even greater flexibility. The new Cloud Servers – as well as the established configurations – have no minimum contract time and offer minute-based billing of the resources used, high-performance brand hardware as well as full flexibility. Even the entry level package, starting at a price of £4.99/month+VAT, offers a full performance scope including numerous integrated features such as unlimited traffic, integrated SSD storage and a load balancer. Customers may also consult the reliable and free 24/7 customer service.
Robert Hoffmann, CEO 1&1 Internet Ltd, said, “After the very successful introduction of the 1&1 Cloud Server in the US market and in Mexico we witnessed a persistently strong demand for our cloud services, especially with regard to configurations for specific use cases. For that reason we decided to extend our cloud offer with four additional packages, in order to cover a wider range of application areas”.
The four new packages at a glance
With the configuration S, 1&1 introduces a cloud server for testing environments: tests and applications which only need a limited amount of resources are optimally stored in the cloud – priced at £4.99/month+VAT. Customers benefit from the full feature set, while paying a very low entry price. Customers that need complex and performance-intensive applications can use larger packages with particularly high-performance: the configurations 3XL, 4XL and 5XL enable customers to host even bigger projects at a monthly fixed price – best performance guaranteed. The area of use cases ranges from hosting web portals to comprehensive database operations. Moreover, media streaming can be operated easily within the cloud with the 3XL package, and the 5XL Cloud Server is ideal for applications with complex data processing.
The Application Programming Interface (API) of the 1&1 Cloud Server is useful to administrate big server packages. Customers working with a large number of virtual machines have the option to manage their servers via the API interface. Especially if the 1&1 Cloud Server is integrated within an existing IT infrastructure, the API interface facilitates the administration, and commands and policies can be entered conveniently.
New to the 1&1 Cloud Server are additional ISO images such as free BSD and the possibility to directly set up SQL Servers in the Cloud Panel.
