(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Speed, stability and reduced downtime are at the core of the newly expanded cloud hosting services offered through myhosting.com. By making use of Microsoft System Center Orchestrator (formerly Opalis) automation, myhosting.com has made virtual hosting and virtual servers accessible to individuals, small and mid-sized businesses and any company seeking comprehensive web hosting services.
Based on the Microsoft Dynamic Data Center Toolkit for Hosters, myhosting.com provides high-availability Virtual Dedicated Services (VDS) that deliver flexible, scalable IT solutions for customers. According to the company’s Product Manager Jeremy Adams, “Windows VDS and virtual server hosting services are designed to meet the demands of businesses that need servers to operate in the new cloud environments with minimal downtime.”
Together with Microsoft and their partners, myhosting.com successfully architected an optimally configured Hyper-V cluster. The clustered solution was designed to ensure workload is seamlessly moved to an alternate virtual machine to avoid outages related to scheduled patching. The new service reduces downtime due to maintenance by up to 50 percent. Outages due to hardware failure are also reduced because seamless workload allocation ensures that virtual machines are transferred to working locations with as little as one ping of downtime.
“Existing customers of myhosting.com will benefit from improved service because of the addition of Microsoft’s Dynamic Data Center Toolkit to enhance myhosting.com’s Hyper-V based private cloud services,” said Anil Reddy, director, Microsoft Server and Tools Business. “In addition, myhosting.com will be able to reach a new breed of customer who previously hadn’t considered a hosted option. New customers will see the value in this highly available, scalable private cloud platform built on Windows Server Hyper-V.”
As part of myhosting.com’s high availability deployment, Cisco and NetApp plays a large role as well. By implementing NetApp storage services, VPS Hosting is now easier to manage and more reliable. According to Darish Rajanayagam, director of operations for myhosting.com. NetApp technology allows us to provide High Availability Virtual Private Servers that handle all levels of disk I/O while allowing us to synchronize backup files, snapshot vaults and secondary storage systems.”
