(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – For those looking for hosting management while on the move, SoftLayer may have an answer. The hosting provider recently announced the availability of apps on platforms including the iPad and Windows Phone 7.
The apps pertain to areas including servers, bandwidth, accounting, and tickets.
Commenting on the matter in a company press release, SoftLayer Chief Scientist Nathan Day stated, “We focus on giving customers total control over their infrastructure. This means being able to manage your services when, where, how, and on whatever device you want.”
“Our Mobile app for Windows Phone 7 and Mobile HD app for the iPad extend our suite of management clients to the mobile platforms our customers use most, and that includes Android as well. We’re already hard at work innovating the next versions of these apps so our customers can take advantage of even more features and functionality,” he continued.
The best thing about the apps is that they’re free. Known as SoftLayer Mobile HD (for iOS) and SoftLayer Mobile (for Windows), they can be downloaded from the iTunes Store and from the Windows Marketplace.
Just recently, another hosting solutions provider made news in the area of mobile hosting. Last Thursday, OnApp launched its own apps available for Android, the iPad, and the iPhone.
