Web host Atlantic.Net
has announced the launch of cloud server Secure Block Storage (SBS). Atlantic.Net was established in 1994 and is recognized as a “market-leading hosting provider”. The company operates data centers in the United States (New York, San Francisco, and Dallas), Canada (Toronto and Orlando) and the United Kingdom (London). Its services include HIPAA, managed, cloud, and dedicated hosting alongside ecommerce, database, disaster recovery and storage options. Secure Block Storage (SBS) allows Atlantic.Net’s customers to “attach additional storage drives to their cloud servers to scale their workloads more easily”.
Secure Block Storage (SBS) is underpinned by 99.999% availability. To ensure data is protected against component failure, the solution automatically replicates volumes. While storage can be adjusted as required, SBS is automatically encrypted “at rest” and allows users to easily move data between cloud servers. To mark the launch, Atlantic.Net is “offering 50 GB of SBS free for an entire year from the date of signup”. Beyond the 50 GB capacity, additional GBs of storage cost only 7.9 cents per month.
"Here at Atlantic.Net, we remain steadfast in our commitment to providing our customers with cutting-edge tools at cost-effective prices. Combining the capacity of enterprise hard drives with NVMe SSD drives, SBS offers the perfect balance of capacity and performance for any customer's storage needs," explained Atlantic.Net’s CEO and President Marty Puranik in a press release. "Rolling out our SBS system at up to 11x the performance of the competition solidifies us as the price and performance leader for the most popular storage tier."Do you know of any other companies enhancing offerings?
