May 13, 2009 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – NEXCESS.NET, LLC (http://www.nexcess.net), a leading web hosting service provider, announced today it has launched the Secure Isolated Platform (SIP). SIP is a tightly integrated selection of hardware and software, optimized for security and performance and focused around a third-party application. SIP hosting plans benefit from R1Soft's Continuous Data Protection (CDP) backup technology, among other security and performance features.
The first line of SIP plans is focused on the popular Magento open-source ecommerce platform. NEXCESS.NET has a long-established relationship with Varien, maker of Magento, and has extensive expertise in configuring and hosting the Magento ecommerce software.
“We've set up Magento sites for hundreds of customers since its inception, and we've invested a lot into optimizing our hosting environment for Magento – as well as targeting what other services Magento customers typically require,” said Chris Wells, President of NEXCESS.NET. “We decided to design a set of Magento hosting plans as our first SIP packages. These plans will include everything that someone interested in running a Magento-based online store needs.”
Each SIP-based hosting plan is hosted on a high-end Dell PowerEdge quad-core server, boasting up to 32 gigabytes of RAM and high-performance 15,000 RPM hard drives in RAID 10 configuration. SIP hosting servers also feature a variety of operating system optimizations that allow them to efficiently host the Magento software. Each server is backed up regularly using R1Soft's CDP technology.
The Magento SIP plans start at $24.99 for the SIP 100 plan, which includes everything needed to run a Magento-based online store, including 7.5 gigabytes of disk space, 75 gigabytes of monthly data transfer, and up to 16 gigabytes of RAM.
For customers who require more performance, Magento SIP plans can scale to the SIP 400 plan, a dedicated Magento SIP server that offers greater performance than anything on the market. The SIP 400 plans start at $499.95 per month. NEXCESS.NET also offers custom-designed Magento server clusters for extremely high-traffic online stores.
Further details of Magento SIP plans, including in-depth case studies and extensive benchmarking information, will be released in the coming weeks.
