NEW VIRTUALISATION PLATFORM FROM ONE OF THE UK’S 1st ISP’s Wednesday 27 August 2008 PDF Print Internet Central, a leading provider of internet business solutions , today announced that they will be rolling out a new virtualised hosting platform for customers which will greatly improve reliability and scalability and help businesses reduce their maintenance costs as well as their environmental impact by making more efficient use of the virtual environment. Planning, development and significant investment into the very latest hardware, software, industry leading firewalls, routers and storage devices will ensure that the requirements of Internet Central’s customers are met both today and in the future. Due to ever changing customer requirements and demand for more robust and scalable service, Internet Central was looking to include a virtual platform that would offer advanced features at affordable prices for customers that were reliant on the web for business growth. This new platform presents a variety of new web hosting options based on enhanced features and functionality and have been designed for higher security and an enhanced online user experience. The company says they will be able to provision sites and servers far quicker than before and offer a greater range of services. Ian Rowley, Internet Central Sales Director comments: “It is claimed that over the next 5 years Virtualisation will be increasingly adopted by service providers and organisations and we wanted to be at the forefront of this development. Virtualisation is fast becoming a key requirement for every server and through the introduction of our virtualisation platform Internet Central is now able to further build on its SME business user base to meet customers' needs. We can tailor client’s server specification to their needs and bring it online easily. We also offer increased redundancy, reduced downtime, performance enhancements and faster upgrading. We will also offer the ability to roll-back to an existing image of a server - this is especially useful if clients host a server with us and want to create a "restore point" before performing a Windows Update or software installation that could break that all-important web application. Most IT Managers will know that no amount of testing can ensure fault-free roll-outs of new software and updates onto live web servers, so this is an essential and excellent way to ensure that they have an image to roll back to instantly. Our customers have grown to expect high end network connectivity and reliability from our hosted platform. We had to ensure that the new platform was even more resilient and reliable than that of our competitors. The new solution will host sites across a range of machines - not just one server. This reduces the chances of failure and, should a server fail, client data, server or website will continue to operate and be available. All data is stored externally with ultra-fast redundant Gigabit connections to connect these servers to the data repository, meaning that client’s valuable server or website can be automatically moved from one host server to another without downtime. We can also centrally manage a customer’s server and ensure that it performs at its best - increasing memory, hard drive space, even allocating more powerful CPU's - all without the usual downtime and data migration from physical servers.” With customers and visitors to websites getting faster and faster connections it is more important now than ever that websites and data servers respond quickly and reliably. Internet Central’s new platform will be monitored and controlled centrally using highly advanced automated systems which will move servers and websites to the least occupied system to ensure an extremely high quality of service for customers.
