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.

Hostway Partners with Parallels to Offer Turn-key Public Cloud Servers for Resellers

LAS VEGAS & CHICAGO (PRWEB) February 04, 2013

Hostway Corporation, a leading provider of cloud, managed and hybrid cloud solutions, today announced it will begin offering Application Packaging Standard (APS) integration of its FlexCloud Server (Infrastructure-as-a-Service, or IaaS) public-cloud hosting suite through a new partnership with Parallels, the worldwide leader in hosting and cloud service enablement and desktop virtualization.

Hostway announced the APS integration of FlexCloud Server at Parallels Summit 2013, going on now through Wednesday, Feb. 6 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

Through Hostways FlexCloud Server APS integration for the Parallels platform, Parallels ecosystem partners will have a cost-effective, turn-key solution for offering Hostways enterprise-class IaaS public cloud service to their customers and resellers. Through Parallels Automation Platform, partners and their resellers can bundle FlexCloud with other services to provide on-demand, pay-as-you-go cloud-computing resources and offer FlexClouds advanced features, including user-configurable firewalls and load balancing, IP address management, image cloning and snapshots, managed backup and other enterprise-class capabilities.

For independent software vendors (ISVs), value-added resellers (VARs) and system integrators (SIs), the new solution allows them to bundle a self-serve compute platform with their software applications, professional services, and managed service offerings to present a one-stop, end-to-end cloud-delivery environment. Server and application replication, disaster recovery and dynamically scalable application environments can now be automated including customer management, billing and care.

Offering Hostways FlexCloud Servers through the Parallels platform provides an integrated, self-service environment that enables our partners to bundle and seamlessly deliver a catalog of cloud applications to their customers, with scalable infrastructure services as a comprehensive cloud solution, said Todd Benjamin, Vice President of Hosted Services at Hostway. With built-in support for sub-resellers, our partners can even leverage their own channels for VARs, system integrators and SaaS providers, enabling them to deliver additional services from their own data center.

FlexCloud Servers are the first Hostway APS offering to be made available in the Parallels ecosystem, starting in Q2 this year. Future service syndication will include the Open-Xchange App Suite for unified email and collaboration platform and cost-effective Virtual Private Servers (VPS). Leveraging the APS Standard enables Hostway to make its comprehensive portfolio of cloud infrastructure and application products available to a much larger audience, and at a significantly reduced cost of implementation and ongoing administration.

Hostways flexible cloud solutions offer the scalability, performance and cost-effectiveness that will enable service providers to deliver high-demand cloud services, said John Zanni, Vice President of Marketing and Alliances for Parallels. Adding Hostways FlexCloud offering to the APS library will enable service providers to address a wider range of needs for both their resellers and their SMB customers.

A demo of the solution can be viewed at the Parallels Summit, Booth #308.

Once released, the Hostway APS package will be available for download at http://apsstandard.org/applications#.

ViUX Systems Deploys Parallels Cloud Server for High-Availability Managed Cloud Hosting & Cloud Storage


Raleigh, North Carolina (PRWEB) January 31, 2013

In advance of the Parallels Summit 2013 next week in Las Vegas, Parallels Gold Partner, ViUX Systems announces deployment of Parallels Cloud Server for high-availability Managed Cloud Hosting on new Dell PowerEdge C-Series servers.

Parallels Cloud Server transforms how ViUX Systems delivers Cloud Servers by combining Parallels Cloud Storage with Parallels Containers and Parallels Hypervisor to dramatically improve the reliability, performance, and density of ViUX servers, as well as, increase profitability.

In recent weeks and over the coming months ViUX Systems will continue deploying new Dell servers and upgrading existing servers with Parallels Cloud Server software replacing prior stand-alone deployments of Parallels Virtuozzo Containers and Parallels Server Bare-Metal, which ViUX has used successfully dating back to 2006.

Parallels Cloud Server is an important step in the evolution of the ViUX Cloud, as it includes revolutionary Cloud Storage technology, which will significantly improve the availability and performance of ViUX Cloud Servers with elastic, scalable Parallels Cloud Storage at its core.

Parallels Cloud Storage uses the existing unused disk space on ViUX servers to deliver Cloud Storage at a fraction of the cost of competing solutions. This provides for ViUX: fault tolerance (no single point of failure); high performance (equivalent to local disks versus network storage devices); and the lowest cost Cloud Storage solution available to benefit ViUX Cloud Hosting customers.

Each Dell PowerEdge C-Series server that ViUX deploys has approximately 4TB of storage per node (with 4 nodes per server), and Parallels Cloud Storage takes this disk space and combines it into one large Cloud Storage pool upon which ViUX VPS Containers and Virtual Machines running on each node are replicated across the storage pool for both high performance and fault tolerance.

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 the hosting automation and billing system that ViUX has also used since 2006, Parallels Business Automation Standard (PBAS).

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.
