Denver, CO, December 17, 2009 – Hosting.com, the leading provider of managed hosting, cloud hosting and colocation solutions and a strategic VMware vCloud partner, today announced multiple enhancements to the Cloud Enterprise environment driven by significant market demand. Access to high performance SAN (EMC) storage, increased computer resources (8GB of RAM now 32 and 4vCPU now 8) and support for seven additional operating systems (including RedHat and Windows Datacenter 2008 R2) highlight the enhancements.
Cloud Enterprise customers can now increase their virtual machine resources to 32 GB of RAM and 8 virtual CPUs via the Hosting.com portal. Companies deploying demanding applications can use Hosting.com’s secure cloud solutions for their test, development and production needs.
In addition, Cloud Enterprise customers pushing upper disk i/o rates have the ability to move data to high performance storage on Hosting.com’s EMC SAN. SAN storage is ideal for customers seeking security, functionality and enterprise-class reliability from the latest storage technologies at mid-market prices.
“Our cloud solutions are frequently used to host robust applications, databases and web servers that require additional resources and storage,” noted Hosting.com Cloud Product Manager Fred Strelzoff. “Increasingly, Hosting.com clients want to migrate their dedicated hosting or colocation solutions into a cloud hosting environment.
