May 18, 2009 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – Versaweb
, a provider of Virtual Private Servers, dedicated hosting, colocation, and managed backup services, today launched UltraVPS, a sister-company offering fully-managed Virtual Private Servers for businesses.
With the launch of UltraVPS, Versaweb will begin transitioning existing and prospective VPS customers to the new company. The transition will only comprise changes within the billing system, not physical migrations or changes to domain configuration. Both Versaweb and UltraVPS are wholly-owned subsidiaries of R&D Technologies, which has been a leader in the hosted services industry for more than five years.
UltraVPS offers a selection of four Linux-based VPS hosting plans. Starting at just $19.95 per month, the UltraVPS Light plan includes 20GB of RAID-10 disk space, 256MB of guaranteed RAM (burstable to 512MB), and 300GB of monthly data transfer. The highest-end plan, which starts at $64.95 per month, offers 80GB of disk space and 1200GB of monthly data transfer.
All VPS plans from UltraVPS include standard server management, with one hour of hands-on system administration time per month. Customers also benefit from 24x7 technical support and discounts on popular software through exclusive partnership agreements.
“The launch of UltraVPS provides an opportunity to more strategically target segments of the hosting market and more effectively serve our customer base. By building a VPS brand on top of our existing hosting infrastructure, we benefit from the economies of scale and scope associated with running a large hosting operation, without sacrificing our ability to be responsive to the dynamic needs of our customers,” said Rob Tyree, CTO of R&D Technologies. “UltraVPS is designed to deliver personalized, reliable hosting services without sacrificing affordability for our customers.”
UltraVPS servers are located in Versaweb’s Las Vegas data facility, featuring gigabit fiber optic connectivity to multiple tier-1 and tier-2 networks. The facility boasts 24x7 monitoring and a variety of security, fire suppression, and power redundancy systems.
