SINGAPORE and HERNDON, Va., November 21, 2007 - ReadySpace today announced a new virtual private server (VPS) offering, powered by SWsoft Virtuozzo virtualization software, as an addition to its managed hosting services.
ReadySpace is a leading managed hosting provider in Asia that offers a range of hosting solutions for small to large businesses. ReadySpace provides each customer with their own virtual server and dedicated resources such as CPU, RAM and hard disk space for their website or applications. Benefits include additional security and availability compared to a shared server, as well as consistent performance and greater server control. Customers can choose to administer and manage the dedicated server themselves or engage ReadySpace Professional Services.
"We partnered with SWsoft because it offers industry-leading Virtuozzo software supported by dedicated development and support teams who are committed to service and support," said David Loke, executive director, ReadySpace. "Through our relationship with SWsoft, ReadySpace can now offer out-of-the-box solutions for customers."
Virtuozzo is the leading virtualization solution for hosting providers. The container-based virtualization software dynamically partitions a single Linux or Windows operating system instance into multiple highly efficient and scalable virtual environments.
"SWsoft Virtuozzo will enable ReadySpace to take advantage of emerging opportunities such as software as a service (SaaS), while providing ReadySpace managed hosting customers with the industry's most effective virtualization solution," said Jan-Jaap Jager, manager of Asian operations, SWsoft. "By choosing Virtuozzo, ReadySpace joins SWsoft's growing community of service providers worldwide that are benefiting from ongoing innovation through our Open Fusion initiative."
Virtuozzo includes patented technology that enables service providers to deploy up to hundreds of virtual environments per physical server. Each virtual environment has the same performance and functionality as a stand-alone server and can be managed with Plesk - SWsoft's market-leading control panel software, third-party control panels, or in-house systems.
As an SWsoft partner, ReadySpace benefits from greater market exposure, new business opportunities, joint sales and marketing initiatives, access to more customers and a high level of service and support. SWsoft offers partnerships for every strategic product and customer need, including hosting, professional services, support, and technology reselling, as well as integration support and certification with all SWsoft products.
Open Fusion is an SWsoft technology initiative to improve integration among a wide range of systems, third-party applications and modules, and custom and in-house solutions. The Open Fusion platform enables optimized delivery of SaaS and traditional hosting services to help independent software vendors and service providers take full advantage of new opportunities in the market. The Application Packaging Standard (APS) is a key element in this initiative and provides a format for software applications running on hosting platforms.
