We are deploying our first cloud and it should be ready very soon. This is the largest expansion of our services ever and it will lay the foundation for future expansions. It looks like the sky is the limit with our future cloud hosting services. Yes pun is intended.
Our cloud will allow for easy deployment of virtual machines running different operating systems (and their applications) on the same hardware at the same time; the ability to bill per hour for cloud resources used; and easily scale resources to meet the changing demands of our clients.
We will be initially offering cloud VPS servers once we complete our deployment. We will offer more details regarding this as we move out of the testing phase of our deployment. We will be very competitive in pricing once we launch this service. You should see the following benefits immediately once we launch:
1. Competitive Pricing
2. Set up private or public clouds in minutes, using libraries of pre-configured, customizable virtual machine templates
3. Every cloud VPS will be scalable both vertically (ability to increase cpu and memory when needed) and horizontally (clone existing VPS servers for load balancing and redundancy).
4. Powerful Backup services will be available to purchase via our EMWD Cloud Guardian system (TBA).
5. Run multiple virtual machines with different operating systems in complete isolation from each other.
One of the main benefits of moving to a cloud platform is the high availability nature of cloud hosting. HA is the standard for cloud hosting and it requires not only fail-safe backup servers and SANs but also failover hypervisors that will immediately come on line if an existing hypervisor fails. Hypervisors are servers that creates and runs virtual servers/machines. We will be running a SAN (raid10) as the storage server for our cloud.
