(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – After having announced an intention to boost the infrastructure of their dedicated server infrastructure based in Dallas, ProlimeHost.com – one of the leading web hosting companies – has come up with a similar proposition to enhance their infrastructure in the south-western city of Phoenix. As per the company claims, their recent platform upgrade of strong integration of Cpanel onto their Linux family of dedicated servers and reduction in cost with hardware boost has led to a significant enhancement in demand of network bandwidth and processing powers at their Phoenix center. Most of this increase in demand has been from owners of small and medium businesses around the West Coast, especially the states of Arizona, California, Washington and Nevada. California has been the state with the maximum bandwidth and processing demand, going by the company reports.
“We are really excited to have walked into August with such a great demand for our dedicated servers”, said Tom Beck, the technical officer of ProlimeHost leading the effort. “The growth of our services around our Phoenix datacenter has been the fastest in recent years. This comes as a surprise, given the current state of economic conditions. But our recent strategy of strengthening our Linux hosting added with the price slash for our dedicated server services has gone really well with our clients served from Dallas and Phoenix. As of now, we are planning to scale up our Phoenix based operations by as much as 25% of our current hardware assets. And if the surge of demand continues, then we shall consider moving up by investing an additional 10%.”
Phoenix is a strategically located city as far as provisioning of data-based services is concerned. A number of web hosting and data processing companies have their data centers located in Phoenix. The human talent, proximity to Silicon Valley, adequate availability of infrastructure required for IT and stability in security has helped this south-western city emerge as a data hosting hub.
A source that preferred to remain unnamed expressed sentiment involving a mix of confidence and uncertainty among the IT analysts at the same time. While Prolime Hosting Solutions has had an eventful July with multiple announcements within a short span of time, some of the analysts remain cautious on whether such a rapid movement from an otherwise-slow server market will be able to meet such high barriers of promise while remaining profitable. The hosting company, however, remained confident about its moves, and has received support from most of the other market analysts. Their recent success in Dallas is a forerunner and trend-setter for their even bigger potential upcoming success in Phoenix as part of their dedicated server hosting, going by the words of an enthusiastic spokesperson representing the web hosting giant.
