Hosting.com Enhances Cloud Computing Portfolio

Customers can now increase their virtual machine resources to 32 GB of RAM and 8 virtual CPUs via the Hosting.com portal

Hosting Pavillion at Cloud Expo

Hosting.com, a provider of managed hosting, cloud hosting and colocation solutions and a strategic VMware vCloud partner, on Thursday announced multiple enhancements to the Cloud Enterprise environment driven by significant market demand.

Access to high performance SAN (EMC) storage, increased computer resources (8GB of RAM now 32 and 4vCPU now 8) and support for seven additional operating systems (including RedHat and Windows Datacenter 2008 R2) highlight the enhancements.

Cloud Enterprise customers can now increase their virtual machine resources to 32 GB of RAM and 8 virtual CPUs via the Hosting.com portal.

Companies deploying demanding applications can use Hosting.com's secure cloud solutions for their test, development and production needs.

In addition, Cloud Enterprise customers pushing upper disk i/o rates have the ability to move data to high performance storage on Hosting.com's EMC SAN. SAN storage is ideal for customers seeking security, functionality and enterprise-class reliability from the latest storage technologies at mid-market prices.

"Our cloud solutions are frequently used to host robust applications, databases and web servers that require additional resources and storage," noted Hosting.com Cloud Product Manager Fred Strelzoff. "Increasingly, Hosting.com clients want to migrate their dedicated hosting or colocation solutions into a cloud hosting environment. The support of nine total operating systems eliminates the need to migrate operating systems and makes the migration process less costly and painful."

Last week, Hosting.com announced VMware Virtual Machine upload availability for customers to migrate their own virtual machines or VMDK (Virtual Machine Disk Format) files to Hosting.com's Cloud Enterprise and Cloud Dedicated solutions. Customers now have the flexibility and portability to move their virtual machines, either from their own environment or another host, into one of Hosting.com's Cloud Super Sites.

Hosting.com's portfolio of Cloud Hosting Solutions include Cloud Enterprise, Cloud Dedicated, Cloud VPS, and vCloud Express - solutions that reduce costs, improve efficiency and provide extreme flexibility to businesses of all sizes. Hosting.com has made significant investments in enterprise-class technologies such as VMware, EMC, Dell, Juniper, F5, and Intel to deliver a robust, standards-based cloud infrastructure to clients demanding unparalleled performance and security.

Operating Systems now supported include Windows 2003 Enterprise 32-Bit and 64-Bit, Windows 2008 Data Center R1 32-Bit, Windows 2008 Data Center R2 64-Bit, Windows 2008 Data Center 64-Bit, Cent OS 32-Bit and 64-Bit, Redhat Enterprise 32-Bit and Redhat Enterprise 64-Bit.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
