PEER 1 Hosting Introduces new public cloud division Zunicore

DAILYHOSTNEWS, November 9, 2011 – Hosting provider Peer 1 has a new platform to handle its cloud services. On Monday, the company announced Zunicore, which encompasses a new division at PEER 1.

PEER 1 markets the Zunicore cloud service to business clients and the service itself makes use of the company’s FastFiber Network.

Commenting on the matter in a press release, Zunicore GM Greg Rusu stated, “Zunicore Cloud Hosting is built on the principle that a company should be able to focus on controlling its core business, rather than on its IT delivery vehicle.”

“Zunicore provides users with a pool of resources and easy to use tools that let users quickly and efficiently manage their cloud hosting business needs,” he continued.

The core features of Zunicore Cloud Hosting include:
•    User-controlled environment: Customizable resource pools that allow users to increase or decrease the size of their pool, or add virtual machines based on their business needs. This type of control also provides Overdraft Protection against the users hosting cost.

•    Data reliability: Unlike other cloud environments that utilize local hard drives for storage at an additional cost, Zunicore offers persistent storage area network (SAN) storage, which is more reliable, less susceptible to data loss and offers higher performance – all at no extra cost.

•    Scalability: Hands-free autoscaling allows users to specify by how little or much they want to scale their resources, based on user-defined thresholds such as technical resources, cost, or both.

•    Minimized downtime risk: Several features help limit Zunicore’s risk of downtime: availability in PEER 1 Hosting’s three geographically dispersed datacenters on two continents, AnyCast DNS across PEER 1 Hosting’s FastFiber Network, persistent SAN and a Zero Downtime Network service level agreement (SLA).
