August 9, 2005 - (HOSTSEARCH.COM) - Web host AIT has teamed up with server automation software firm SWsoft to offer Plesk software as part of its dedicated server offerings. AIT is incorporating the Plesk multi-platform server management software into all of the operating systems it supports: Linux Red Hat, Fedora, Free BSD and Windows Server 2003.
The power of Plesk combined with the stability of the AIT network adds up to a very compelling system for users who want convenient control over their server, said Clarence Briggs, AITs Chief Executive Officer. Access to Plesk is something that customers, particularly self-managed server owners, want to have and this software on our industrial grade infrastructure makes sense from both technical and business perspectives.
We are excited that such a prominent and successful hosting provider has exclusively selected Plesk as its preferred control panel, said Serguei Beloussov, CEO, SWsoft. Plesks ease-of-use, full feature set and flexible business model serve a rapidly growing customer base, and we continue to invest aggressively in Plesk development and support as well as integrated solutions including our Virtuozzo, SiteBuilder, HSPcomplete and PEM solutions.
The addition of Plesk 7.5 Reloaded further expands AITs line of dedicated server plans, which have become more appealing to the coveted SMB market as hardware prices fall. Dedicated hosting has a strong appeal to companies that operate heavily-trafficked web sites, have expansive shopping carts, and simply cant afford the resource issues that sometimes occur with shared hosting. Our approach has been to offer customers the flexibility to virtually customize their own plan, to choose the services that are mission-essential without having to pay for features they dont need, said Kirk DeViere, AITs Chief Operating Officer. The companys dedicated options include self-managed and fully-managed plans along with a series of bolt-on products that speak to security, e-commerce, and convenience.
Plesk 7.5 Reloaded and subsequently Plesk 7.5 for Windows have been increasingly selected by leading hosting service providers worldwide. Used on more than 60,000 servers and by 8 of the top 10 global service providers, the Plesk control panel dramatically simplifies the management of Linux/Unix and Windows-based servers. Proven through years of professional production usage, Plesk is considered the industry benchmark for managing dedicated, virtual and shared server environments.
With Plesks built-in and fully functional Migration Manager, hosting providers can more easily migrate from in-house systems, older Plesk versions and other 3rd party control panels.
