Web hosting solutions Virtual Internet
(VI) are delighted to announce they’ve recently launched Xen Sandbox Cloud servers as well as upgraded their VMware
hosting solution, the industry’s latest cloud hosting technologies to meet your individual business requirements.
Complementing the company’s enterprise-level VMware cloud servers, the new Xen Sandbox Servers present a wide range of benefits, including extraordinary cost-efficiency, performance and flexibility to name but a few. By offering you almost limitless options to scale up and down in terms of load balancing, hardware upgrading and the overall resource management, these cutting-edge cloud hosting solutions allow businesses to shift their focus from maintenance to efficiency and innovation, helping to grow their business as they fully optimise resources throughout IT.
VMware and Xen are two modern technologies behind the larger concept of cloud hosting, which has been all the rage since its emergence in the market. As opposed to a traditional hosting environment, where your website is hosted on a single server, often alongside multiple other websites, cloud hosting is basically a complicated arrangement of multiple servers in clusters. Having a number of servers configured to dynamically respond to your website’s requirements, be it a sudden surge in traffic or reduction in the allocated disk space, will ensure maximum uptime of your website, even if you are deploying mission critical apps. With much more efficient resource utilisation, cloud hosting providers charge only on the basis of the amount of processing power consumed, similar to your telephone or electricity bills. That is why cloud hosting is to date the most cost-effective web-hosting solution to both well-established large enterprises and emerging businesses, looking to expand in the future.
Yana Kryuchkova, Marketing Manager, Virtual Internet: “At VI we do our best to deliver exactly the right hosting solution for any business. We pride ourselves in being the only UK based cloud host to offer both VMware and Xen as a cloud solution. The popularity of cloud computing is increasing dramatically but there are few hosting providers that have years of cloud hosting experience in UK thought it’s incredibly important. Virtual Internet is UK cloud hosting provider since 2008. At VI we also have VCP qualified engineers and VSP qualified sales mangers to ensure you receive the highest level of service possible.”
Both Xen and VMware platforms have their key benefits that the other does not. The main difference between the two is Xen being a far more cost-effective platform as it’s built on an OpenSource technology and VMware being the industry’s top-notch and most comprehensive virtualisation product. So you may want to consider starting off small on VI’s new XEN Sandbox clouds and then upgrading to the company’s enterprise-level VMware later on in your system or product lifecycle.
