(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – The recently released Parallels Virtuozzo Containers 4.6 offers a number of noteworthy upgrades; with Disk I/O updates chief among them. This update allows myhosting.com to further enhance its Parallels Virtuozzo VPS plans with a new service, taking full advantage of the updated Virtuozzo platform in both its Toronto Data Center and new Rochester, New York Data Center.
Parallels Virtuozzo Containers 4.6 is one of the most powerful server virtualization platforms currently available. It replaces the traditional hypervisor with a virtual server operating system, giving users more control over the device and allowing myhosting.com to maximize the resources of its physical servers.
“Creating new plans to support PVC 4.6 and CentOS and Debian Linux allows us to dramatically improve our hosting services,” said Darish Rajanayagam, Director of Operations at myhosting.com. “By leveraging the features included in Virtuozzo for Linux, we are able to maximize the potential of our physical devices, fitting more virtual machines in each server. The upgrade also allows us to upgrade our server management and monitoring services, making it easier to meet customer needs with a powerful VPS plan.”
The new Disk I/O features of Virtuozzo Containers provides the ability to enforce and monitor Disk I/O operations, which will improve overall I/O performance, ensuring the operations of one container do not impact the performance of other containers. As a result of the upgrade to Virtuozzo Containers 4.6, myhosting.com customers can enjoy improved performance of VPS plans and leverage more powerful resources.
“The upgrade to Parallels Virtuozzo Containers 4.6 lets us provide customers with the most powerful Linux VPS plans possible,” said Tim Attwood, Product Manager. “Our Virtuozzo VPS Hosting plans also support the Virtuozzo Power Panel technology. With Power Panel, our VPS users can make extensive changes to the core attributes of their VPS plans, such as adjusting the distribution of system resources on the virtual device, reboot, shut down and perform other management tasks on the server without the assistance of a technician.”
Parallels Virtuozzo Power Panel technology supports VPS hosting by allowing users to fully customize the advanced solution, as well as offering flexibility in deploying applications, system resources and other features.
