GlowHost Launches Cloud Hosting Solutions for SMBs

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) –, Inc., a decade-long leader in high-availability Web hosting solutions, today launched a line of Cloud hosting services designed to deliver a next-generation hosting platform for small to medium sized businesses. The new services lead the industry in price, features, and capability.

The company’s Cloud hosting solutions, branded as Cloud VDS, offer several key benefits over traditional dedicated servers. Namely, Cloud hosting provides greater redundancy and reliability than a dedicated server, because computing resources are distributed across a wide array of hardware devices, instead of one physical machine. Additionally, since server resources are utilized more efficiently, GlowHost can deliver the service at a much lower cost than a comparable dedicated server solution.

“Our new Cloud VDS uses virtualization technology with a long track record of stability, security, and reliability. In fact, it powers more than half of the world’s public clouds in service today. Not only can we provide greater computing capacity at a lower cost, but we can offer our customers a substantially greater level of control and scalability. Our prices and features can beat every one of our major competitors, and we are poised to remain a market leader in this emerging sector,” said Matt Lundstrom, GlowHost president. “It’s time to move away from older generations of hosting technology, because the business case for those technologies has vanished.”

Unlike other providers who offer generic Cloud hosting solutions without disclosing technical details, GlowHost is clear in its specifications. All Cloud VDS plans include specific CPU, RAM, and data storage resource allotments, with instant scalability available in the event of usage spikes. Data is protected by redundancy on multiple Storage Area Networks (SANs), and servers receive power from two completely independent electric grid sources. Customers can also completely customize their Cloud hosting solution, including selecting from more than 30 different operating systems, and
Cloud customers enjoy rebootless kernel updates ensuring even higher website availability.

Cloud hosting starts at $75/month for full management and an array of features. To learn more about Cloud hosting solutions from GlowHost, please visit
