(Ping! Zine) – Hosting.com, the leading provider of managed hosting, cloud hosting and colocation solutions, today announced the addition of Cloud Private to its Cloud Hosting portfolio. Cloud Private is a single-tenant, VMware-enabled compute infrastructure that includes licensing, monitoring and management of cloud servers in one or more Hosting.com Cloud Super Sites.
Cloud Private provides customers the highest levels of cloud server security and compliancy with fully managed, flexible, dedicated hardware. Regulatory and compliance demands for single-tenant environments for HIPAA, PCI, SOX and more are addressed with a Cloud Private solution.
Cloud Private customers are ensured their privacy is protected while gaining access to the features inherent to a cloud solution – including self-service management and provisioning via a secure web portal, intelligent load management, automated failover functionality, and the ability to connect to Hosting.com’s public cloud solutions for additional and instant compute resources.
Cloud Private addresses a previous gap in Hosting.com’s Cloud Portfolio – a private cloud solution that is fully managed through Hosting.com’s Customer Portal and Entourage Support team, and is capable of connecting to Hosting.com’s Hybrid Hosting solutions. Hybrid Hosting allows standalone cloud, dedicated and colocation components to run independently or as part of a network.
Hybrid Hosting provides businesses of all sizes with technology and cost benefits formerly reserved for large enterprises with their own datacenters. Hosting.com customers can connect their Cloud Private solution to their internal infrastructure or to Hosting.com’s public clouds to flex their infrastructure during a new project, seasonal spike, or for multi-site disaster recovery.
Craig McLellan, Hosting.com Chief Technology Officer, added, “Our engineering teams work vigorously to deliver multiple cloud hosting solutions to the marketplace for one reason – customer demand. Cloud Private is the fourth addition to our Cloud Portfolio and it is the most significant because it meets existing customer demands such as – datacenter redundancy in multiple Cloud Super Sites, on-demand resource availability in a private, managed cloud, and federation of internal clouds.”
Cloud Private virtual machines are offered with common Windows and Linux operating system options and managed by Hosting.com, reducing a customer’s management and costs associated with payments and maintenance. Additionally, Cloud Private customers receive free 24x7x365 expert Entourage Support.
Hosting.com customers access the secure web-based Customer Portal to manage and provision their Cloud Hosting solutions. The Customer Portal provides the ability to administer and create virtual machines, adjust resources, add services, and view and create alarms. Most modifications made via the Customer Portal are available within minutes. View the Hosting.com Customer Portal Demo.
