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.

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.

ViUX Systems Announces New Web Hosting Affiliate Referral Program & Commissions Structure


Raleigh, North Carolina (PRWEB) January 01, 2013

ViUX Systems has released a new Web Hosting Affiliate Referral Program with multiple campaigns of both fixed amount and percentage based commissions for use by existing ViUX customers in referring others; and for Web Developers or anyone with a Website to earn commissions by promoting ViUX Hosting services to their customers and Website visitors.

This new Affiliate Program from ViUX is completely automated and integrated into the ViUX Control Panel at: https://hsp.viux.com/cp/ – and is based upon the latest version of Parallels Business Automation Standard (PBAS 4.3), which is the Hosting Automation System from Parallels used by ViUX Systems.

Existing customers of ViUX can view and select their desired Affiliate Campaign(s) from within the ViUX Control Panel via the [Account] tab and [Campaign List] icon within the [Affiliate Program] section.

Current ViUX Affiliate Campaigns are for offering ViUX Cloud Servers and Shared Cloud Hosting featuring free setup and a free Domain Name for a flat commission of up to $ 120 per referred sale; or for a commission payment of up to 30% of the referred order total. Additional campaigns will be published soon for other ViUX services, as well as, different commission options from which to choose.

If not already a ViUX customer or reseller, anyone can join the ViUX Affiliates Program at no charge, and gain immediate access to the full system by just applying online. The same listing of Affiliate Campaigns are available in either case, and commissions can start being earned within minutes after sign-up.

The system lists many different banners and text promotional material that can be easily added to a Website, Blog, Facebook, Twitter, E-mail Signature, etc… Each Affiliate receives their own unique code for the system to track referrals. Anyone following a link from an Affiliate receives a browser cookie that tracks the source of the sale, even if completed weeks or months later.

ViUX pays Initial commissions after 90 days of each sale; however established high-volume Affiliates can be converted to monthly payment upon approved request. Commission payments can be converted to an account balance with ViUX (i.e. Store Credit); or if preferred they can be paid out as cash via PayPal.

ViUX has been offering expert Web Hosting services since 2003 (and actually since 1997 under a different name)… during which time the primary method of growth has been word of month. The new ViUX Affiliate Program will allow that growth to be propelled to an even greater extent to the mutual benefit of both ViUX and its Affiliates.
