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.

Virtual Global’s New Platform-as-a-Service Gives Developers a Free Path to the Cloud

Morgantown, WV (PRWEB) November 08, 2012

Virtual Global, a cloud computing company that specializes in federal and commercial cloud strategies and software development, has announced the release of SaaS Maker a platform-as-a-service for building, deploying, and selling subscription-based software on the cloud. The application features, among other highlights, a wizard for the convenient building of functionalities and a software development kit that makes it possible to better integrate with legacy software systems.

In developing SaaS Maker, Virtual Global has addressed the large and growing market for custom software on the cloud, and has acknowledged and served the need on the part of developers to find ways to migrate and modernize their legacy software applications without being locked into proprietary infrastructure providers. Furthermore, SaaS Maker functions in providing a new way for developers to build and sell true subscription-based software-as-a-service applications on the cloud.

“We tend to forget the cloud movement is largely about the mass adoption of software-as-a-service over the next few years and, yes, infrastructure services save moneybut the real value is realized when cloud adoption moves ‘up the stack’ into software services,” said Cary Landis, President of Virtual Global. “The framework of our new SaaS Maker product has a proven, decade-long acumen in federal, commercial, and academic installations both nationally and internationally and we’re confident that it’s ready for primetime. Saas Maker uses point-and-click tools, it lets developers quickly add functionalities such as user subscriptions, data-entry forms, role-based access security, workflow management, team collaboration, and business intelligence reports and it allows developers to publish their apps for sale on the cloud.”

The new software development kit in SaaS Maker lets developers create feature-rich programs that integrate with other web services, such as big data and geospatial services. It is portable across data centers, so that developers can implement secure solutions on their own private cloud, and it is equally suited for multiple types of developers including large enterprise companies moving mission-critical systems to the cloud.

According to Landis, software companies can leverage the platform architecture to cut their time-to-market, risks and costs by more than half. SaaS Maker also lowers the cost of getting started, because developers don’t need to invest up-front into expensive development tools and servers. With SaaS Maker, developers can literally sign up for free and immediately start building enterprise systems that scale to millions of users.
