“This service would not have been technologically possible even 12 months ago.When we looked at the market we couldn’t find a cloud that met all our customers needs,” said Mike Gero, Director, Product Management, iWeb.

The OpenStack infrastructure coupled with iWeb’s network and use of SSD drives will delivered an enhanced quality of service, as per Mr. Mike.

“ By engineering this cloud with the best vendors and technologies, we are delivering something I am sure customers will enjoy and competitors will envy. We truly believe this will meet our customer’s performance, availability and support requirements. Due to our use of SSD drives our standard disk performance is on average 2x that of other Cloud providers and the security of customer data is maintained with data replication and redundancy,” he added.

Provisioned on a QoS-enabled centralized block storage engineered exclusively with SSD drives, the new managed Cloud service leverages iWeb’s network network and “Grizzly”, the most up-to-date version of Openstack.

While the initial deployments of the service are fully-managed solutions built with the latest generation of processors, memory and CentOS Linux, iWeb plans to roll out additional services with a robust application-programming interface and other features in Q3 and Q4 of 2013.

“This is the cloud that our customers have asked for and our staff has been very excited to develop, test and now deploy. It removes all the barriers for customers wishing to upgrade to a Cloud infrastructure, ” said Mr. Christian Primeau, President and COO, iWeb.

“Reliability is built into iWeb’s DNA and this Cloud guarantees superior performance without sacrificing reliability. We are extremely proud of what we have built and pleased to bring it to the market,” he added.

ViUX Deploys ParallelsCloud Server for Managed CloudHosting and CloudStorage in advance of Parallels Summit

In advance of the Parallels Summit 2013 next week in Las Vegas, Parallels Gold Partner, ViUX Systems announces deployment of Parallels Cloud Server for high-availability Managed Cloud Hosting on new Dell PowerEdge C-Series servers. In recent weeks ViUX added DomainsBot API to help find Premium Domains on Sedo, launched an affiliate referral program, enabled Smarter Tools API for instant provisioning of license keys for SmarterMail, SmarterStats and SmarterTrack and offered SmarterTools Software Bundle. In a recent interview with DailyHostNews, Mr. Jonathan Smith, CEO, ViUX Systems, indicated that “most of the services that we offer now and will launch this year are in some way based upon a Parallels software product.” Over the coming months ViUX Systems plans to continue deploying new Dell servers and upgrading existing servers with Parallels Cloud Server software – replacing prior stand-alone deployments of Parallels Virtuozzo Containers and Parallels Server Bare-Metal, which ViUX has used successfully dating back to 2006.

Parallels Cloud Server is an amazing cost saver for ViUX in that it allows us to do that which would otherwise require an expensive SAN, while making the ViUX Cloud more reliable thereby further saving on support costs. – J.T. Smith, CEO,ViUX Systems.

Parallels Cloud Server transforms how ViUX Systems delivers Cloud Servers by combining Parallels Cloud Storage with Parallels Containers and Parallels Hypervisor – to dramatically improve the reliability, performance, and density of ViUX servers, as well as, increase profitability. It is an important step in the evolution of the ViUX Cloud, as it includes revolutionary Cloud Storage technology, which will significantly improve the availability and performance of ViUX Cloud Servers – with elastic, scalable Parallels Cloud Storage at its core.

Parallels Cloud Storage uses the existing unused disk space on ViUX servers to deliver Cloud Storage at a fraction of the cost of competing solutions. This provides for ViUX: fault tolerance (no single point of failure); high performance (equivalent to local disks versus network storage devices); and the lowest cost Cloud Storage solution available to benefit ViUX Cloud Hosting customers.

Parallels Cloud Server includes: Parallels Containers, the highest density, highest performance Cloud Server virtualization solution (formerly Parallels Virtuozzo Containers), enabling near instant provisioning with no operating system updates required by the customer; and Parallels Hypervisor (formerly Parallels Server Bare-Metal) giving ViUX the flexibility to create Virtual Machines for customers who prefer to manage and maintain their own operating systems – all controlled by the hosting automation and billing system that ViUX has also used since 2006, Parallels Business Automation Standard (PBAS).

Each Dell PowerEdge C-Series server that ViUX deploys has approximately 4TB of storage per node (with 4 nodes per server), and Parallels Cloud Storage takes this disk space and combines it into one large Cloud Storage pool upon which ViUX VPS Containers and Virtual Machines running on each node are replicated across the storage pool – for both high performance and fault tolerance. Using Parallels Cloud Server and other software systems from Parallels, ViUX has deployed a super-efficient and highly automated Cloud Hosting Infrastructure from which a wide range of Web Hosting and Managed Cloud Services are offered, such as: Shared Cloud Hosting; Private Cloud Servers; Dynamic Dedicated Servers, etc… that appeal to the broadest possible customer base.

ViUX Systems is a privately held North Carolina Corporation established in 2003 – with the mission to provide individuals and businesses of all types and sizes with the Web / Internet Technology and Software Solutions required to offer their products and services to the world… with Vision, Understanding, & eXperience in Web Services.
