Hosting Provider ViUX Systems Improves Retention of High-Value Customers by Creating a Natural Upgrade Path Powered by Parallels Software


Raleigh, North Carolina (PRWEB) July 23, 2013

Parallels Partner, ViUX Systems is the subject of a new case study published by Parallels with the title “Hosting provider ViUX Systems improves retention of high-value customers by creating a natural upgrade path powered by Parallels software”.

The case study speaks about the history and growth of ViUX Systems and its use of Parallels software to solve business problems faced along the way… most specifically, Parallels Virtuozzo Containers & Parallels Cloud Server – the latter of which ViUX has recently deployed as the foundation of its Cloud Servers and new Virtual Datacenter.

The case study details how ViUX has progressed from Shared Hosting, to Dynamic Dedicated Servers, to now using Parallels Cloud Server as the foundation upon which all ViUX services will be provisioned going forward… and how this marks a critical step in the evolution of the ViUX Cloud, as it now includes revolutionary Parallels Cloud Storage technology which significantly improve the availability and performance of ViUX Cloud Servers provisioned upon new state-of-the-Internet Dell PowerEdge C- Series Servers.

———-

Parallels Cloud Server allows ViUX to provision Cloud Servers as both Containers and Hypervisors on the same physical servers. This flexibility lets ViUX take advantage of the scalability and streamlined management of Operating System Virtualization (Containers); while also making use of Hardware Virtualization (Hypervisors) to create Virtual Machines (VMs) – all deployed on top of Parallels Cloud Storage.

Parallels Cloud Storage combines and pools the disk space on ViUX servers into a single large storage cluster to deliver Cloud Storage at a fraction of the cost of competing solutions. When used to deploy Cloud Servers, Parallels Cloud Storage eliminates the physical server as a potential single point of failure, for high-availability Cloud Hosting.

ViUX Systems was one of the first Hosting Providers to announce deployment of Parallels Cloud Server (PCS) back in February as a beta offering just prior to the Parallels Summit 2013 in Las Vegas. The live production deployment of PCS by ViUX uses new Dell PE C6220 Servers. The complete configuration and deployment details are published in the ViUX Blog: ViUX Deploys 54TB Cloud Storage Cluster Using Parallels Cloud Server 6.0 on Dell PowerEdge Cloud (6220) Servers.

Parallels Cloud Server includes: Parallels Containers, the highest density, highest performance Cloud Server Virtualization solution (formerly Parallels Virtuozzo Containers) – enabling near instant provisioning with no operating system updates required by the customer; and Parallels Hypervisor (formerly Parallels Server Bare Metal) – giving ViUX the flexibility to create Virtual Machines for customers who prefer to manage and maintain their own operating systems; all controlled by Parallels Business Automation, which is the hosting automation and billing system from Parallels that ViUX has used since 2006.

Using Parallels Cloud Server and other software systems from Parallels, ViUX has deployed a super-efficient and highly automated Cloud Hosting Infrastructure from which a wide range of Web Hosting and Managed Cloud Services are offered, such as: Shared Cloud Hosting; Private Cloud Servers; Dynamic Dedicated Servers, etc… that appeal to the broadest possible customer base.

The new case study published by Parallels about ViUX Systems gives the history of this evolution and how Parallels software has allowed ViUX to overcome certain business problems along the way – resulting in the latest offering from ViUX… the Virtual Datacenter.

Cartika Adopts Ksplice Uptrack ‘Rebootless’ Technology as Value Added Service for All Cartika Linux Hosting Customers


Toronto, Canada and Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) September 22, 2010

Cartika Inc., a leading provider of Web hosting services, announced it has adopted Ksplice Uptrack’s “rebootless” and automated Linux update technology, bringing its customers a new class of best-of-breed dedicated and virtual server offerings.

Starting this month, Ksplice Uptrack will be included with every one of Cartika’s dedicated and virtual servers at no additional cost. “Adopting Ksplice was an easy decision,” said Andrew Rouchotas, CEO of Cartika. “We’re able to save on the high costs of updating, patching and keeping servers secure, while our customers are getting top-notch security without compromising uptime,” he said.

“Ksplice Uptrack revolutionizes server availability and security,” said Waseem Daher, Ksplice’s chief operating officer. “We’re thrilled to support Cartika’s dedication to its Linux hosting customers.” Ksplice’s technology allows IT administrators to keep Linux servers up-to-date and secure without the disruption and downtime of rebooting.

In 2009, major Linux vendors asked their customers to install a kernel update more than once per month. Before Uptrack, each occasion required an administrator to schedule downtime to apply the update. Until a system can be updated, it remains vulnerable to security flaws. By seamlessly and automatically installing kernel updates, Uptrack dramatically reduces the overhead of system administration, dramatically boosting uptime and security.

About Ksplice: Ksplice is an enterprise software company making

reboots a thing of the past. Organizations use Ksplice Uptrack, the

companys first product, to make their Linux systems more secure,

reliable and maintainable through seamless updates. Ksplice was

founded in 2008, based on research from the Massachusetts Institute of

Technology. In 2009, the Wall Street Journal named Ksplice the most

innovative security company of the year. Ksplice is based in

Cambridge, Mass. For more information, please visit

SupplierSoft Announces Multiple Wins with S&P 500 Customers for Conflict Minerals Software


Sunnyvale, California (PRWEB) January 22, 2014

SupplierSoft Inc, a pioneer in cloud-computing based supplier relationship management software, today announced several wins for its Conflict Minerals Software, including multiple S&P 500 customers.

SupplierSoft Conflict Minerals Solution helps manufacturers comply with SEC filing requirements as defined in section 1502 of Dodd-Frank Act. Starting in 2014, public US companies and certain foreign companies must declare in their annual SEC filing whether they have Tantalum, Tin, Gold or Tungsten (3TG) in their products, and if so whether these metals originate from mines fueling civil conflict in one of nine covered countries in Africa. While SEC estimates that 6000 US companies will be required to file a Conflict Minerals Report, the expected supply chain ripple will require as many as 12,000 US companies and potentially 195,000 companies to perform some level of supply chain analysis. SupplierSoft automates the achilles heel of Conflict Minerals Management – reaching out to suppliers, collecting and validating supplier responses, and finally rolling-up supplier responses so that companies can do their SEC filings or respond to customer inquiries. The software supports the industry standard EICC/GeSI Template (Conflict Minerals Reporting Template) created by the Conflict Free Sourcing Initiative (CFSI). The system delivers rapid ROI through improved productivity, reduced risk of errors and improved customer satisfaction.

In an era of relentless outsourcing, the Conflict Minerals reporting requirement represents yet another example of business processes where manufacturers must efficiently collaborate with their suppliers whether it is on compliance, quality or commercial aspects of the relationship. To effectively manage suppliers in this environment, companies are looking for strategic Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) cloud-based platforms that can help them manage all facets of a supplier relationship and are quick-to-implement, while delivering quick ROI,” said Balu Sharma, CEO of SupplierSoft. “We are excited to have multiple S&P 500 customers select SupplierSoft after doing an extensive review of 10+ different software vendors.

About SupplierSoft

SupplierSoft, Inc, a pioneer in cloud-computing based Supplier Management platform, helps companies automate any and all supplier-facing business processes. SupplierSoft was named in Top-10-Companies to Watch by Managing Automation. SupplierSoft Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) software suite includes Conflict Minerals Management, RoHS/REACH, Procure-To-Pay, Supplier Risk, Supplier Information Management, Supplier Scorecards, Component Qualification/PPAP, Supplier Corrective Action Request (SCAR), Supplier Contract Management and Supplier Audits. The solutions complement and extend ERP systems such as SAP and Oracle by managing supplier processes that are not managed by these systems.

Customers start by automating the highest ROI processes, knowing that they can manage other processes in future. Ease-of-use, a consistent user-interface, global performance and a single login across multiple solutions makes supplier adoption high. SupplierSoft solutions help reduce operational costs and supplier risk, ensure supplier compliance, improve supplier quality and improve customer satisfaction.

The solutions are built on top of Force.com, a proven enterprise platform from salesforce.com for building and running business applications in the cloud. The platform dramatically reduces the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by speeding development time and costs by more than 50% over traditional platforms.
