After thorough testing, UK web hosting provider eUKhost has launched its new Cloud VPS Hosting service, powered by its new cloud environment that is based on VMware virtualization platform.
According to its Monday announcement, eUKhost’s Cloud VPS Hosting offers one of the best solutions available for delivering 100 percent uptime in a virtual server environment. VMware’s Fault Tolerance and High Availability features help eliminates even the smallest disruptions in the event of hardware failures along with its Distributed Resource Scheduler feature that continuously monitors virtual machines and physical servers.
“At eUKhost, our intention was to make the Cloud Hosting Service generally available to all users worldwide after successful testing of the product late last year,” eUKhost business development manager Ryan Watson said in a statement. “We received numerous requests from users wanting to test our cloud hosting environment and test VPSs were provided to some of our existing customers. These tests assessed the speed, functionality and reliability of our Cloud Hosting environment. Based on the results of these tests and feedback received, we decided to go ahead with the full launch of Cloud VPS Hosting, a service that will deliver peace of mind and satisfaction to our valued customers.”
Hosted in its Milton Keynes data center facility, the current Cloud Hosting environment features highly available and fault tolerant clusters with multiple hardware nodes, while preserving the flexibility to choose between any type of OS, application and hardware. If any single node experiences failure for any reason, VMware will automatically move the affected websites to a backup node, eliminating the possibility of any downtime.
With plans starting as low as £30 (or about $47) per month, customers can get enterprise-class hosting that delivers superior performance, reliability and scalability. Cloud VPS hosting plans are available for both Microsoft Windows and Linux OS. Each plan includes pre-installed software, including ASP.NET and SQL Server on Windows and PHP, Perl, and MySQL on Linux. Additionally, Cloud VPS plans feature 24×7×365 expert technical support and a 100 percent uptime guarantee.
