CatN announces next generation cloud hosting service

. December 6, 2013

CatN, has launched a next generation service called vCluster, a cloud hosting platform for PHP applications such as WordPress. The service has been designed to scale automatically so that websites can easily cope with spikes in traffic.

The vCluster Platform as a Service (PaaS), built entirely by CatN, is designed to be incredibly simple to use, allowing websites to scale up and down automatically without any need for manual interaction. vCluster has been designed for a host of users, from beginners to PHP developers.

Joe Gardiner, Head of Product at CatN, said: “Our aim with vCluster is to make cloud hosting fast and simple for all; it comes with an intuitive control panel so you only need to load your website or code onto the platform and it just works. No complicated documentation or configuration is required.”

CatN has put in place a very straightforward pricing model and customers will only pay for what they use. “You get powerful cloud hosting that can absorb massive spikes in traffic for just £5 per month,” adds Gardiner. “We think that’s a pretty good deal.”

With the cloud market moving towards PaaS, managed environments make it much easier for developers to get their applications up and running on the cloud without any server configuration requirements.

vCluster has been designed for several users and uses, including:

• PHP Developers – define workflows by using multiple accounts for dev, test and staging. Forget the infrastructure and use powerful command line tools to deploy apps.

• Businesses – build business on a solid platform, collaborating with a unique eco-system of designers, developers, UX experts, software vendors and others.

• E-commerce – launch an e-commerce website easily. PHP apps, such as Magento, absolutely fly and installing a secure certificate is simple with a unique SSL wizard.

• Web agencies – benefit from granular control over billing and access for client accounts. A single, secure administration panel makes running business easier than ever.

• WordPress – run as many WordPress sites as you wish, or a single multi-site if preferred.

• Beginners – Install your favourite website tool with our one-click installer and beneft from cloud, but with a pricing model that is simple.

Mark Sutton, CTO of CatN, commented: “With the launch of vCluster version 2.0 we believe that we have the opportunity to define the PaaS category. The beauty of vCluster and PaaS is that they suit bloggers and large businesses. With open source powering vCluster we are in an excellent position to grow the product without any restrictions and to work closely with our clients to develop the features they need.”
