SQL Standard and SQL Enterprise in the Cloud

Cloud Enterprise, Hosting.com’s premier public cloud platform, is one of the first cloud solutions to support SQL enterprise.

Denver, CO, March 10, 2010Hosting.com, the leading provider of managed hosting, cloud hosting and colocation solutions, today announced the availability of SQL Standard and SQL Enterprise in the Cloud Enterprise environment providing customers access to enterprise-level software previously only available in a dedicated server environment.

Hosting.com’s commitment to providing mid-level enterprises with Microsoft technologies is reinforced with the availability of SQL Standard and SQL Enterprise in the cloud. Customers can utilize SQL Standard for the essential functionality of non-critical e-commerce, data warehousing, and line-of-business solutions.

SQL Enterprise Edition scales to the performance levels required to support enterprise online transaction processing (OLTP), highly complex data analysis, data warehousing systems, and websites. With comprehensive business intelligence, robust analytics capabilities and high-availability features such as failover clustering and database mirroring, SQL Enterprise can handle the most critical enterprise workloads.

Fred Strelzoff, Hosting.com Cloud Hosting Product Manager, added “Our customers are processing e-commerce, database and data rich applications and require access to a robust SQL environment without the higher cost associated with a dedicated environment. Cloud Enterprise provides our customers with a cost-effective and scalable environment and the security necessary to ensure their data is protected. Many of our customers are taking advantage of the ability to create hybrid SQL hosting solutions by connecting a dedicated server environment with a cloud product to meet industry compliance guidelines.”

Microsoft SQL versions now supported in the Cloud Enterprise and Cloud Dedicated platforms include SQL Enterprise 2008, SQL Enterprise 2005, SQL Standard 2008, SQL Standard 2005, SQL Web Edition 2008 and MySQL Server 5.0.
