IBM acquires Private cloud and hosting business of Verizon

Verizon, through an official statement, announced the decision to sell its private cloud services and hosting business to IBM. With the new development, it seems like Verizon’s cloud services and hosting businesses have come to an end. Verizon entered the cloud market back in 2011 when it acquired Terremark, preparing a strong foundation for its private cloud business. Cloud market is witnessing a fierce competition between major players like Amazon, Google and Microsoft who have already reserved a place for themselves. Verizon also sold its public cloud services last year and with this recent move it appears like it was not able to set a higher scale for its cloud service and now might come up with new business strategies all-together.

How to choose a Good Web Host- 6 Most Important Factors

Make a Google search for online reviews of the web hosting provider you’re considering for your website and you’ll realize one thing before even making your website live for the first time- There is no single web host with unanimously positive reviews out there.  Not even those who charge  humongous price for their services.

Every web host has it’s own pluses and minuses; what matters is how good it is for you-and that totally depends on the kind of website you want to host and the kind of services you need.  To help you find the right web hosting provider for your website here are some of the...

“AussieHost.com will always be aimed at the Aussie hosting market”- Rob Walker, AussieHost.com

AussieHost.com recently launched an affiliate program with generous commissions and we’d an opportunity for a Q&A session with Mr. Rob Walker (aka Aussie Bob), the AussieHost.com founder and CEO regarding the same. What we expected was just another Run-of-the-mill interview, and what we got surprised us pleasantly. So over to Aussie Bob himself, as he candidly talks about his first entrepreneurial venture, his decision to sell it, inception of AussieHost.com and it’s modus-operandi that keeps it profitable while providing services at nominal prices. I love it when clients can save money by hosting all their domains in their one hosting account with us, as compared to paying for their hosting on a domain by domain basis. This was the hook that got HTTPme off the ground, back...

How to Increase Speed of Your Website by Content Optimization and CDN

There are many ways to improve the performance of a Web site and the strategies that optimize this performance can be organized into three types. The first category concerns support hardware. It is obvious that improving the performance of the machine (physical or virtual) that is hosting the web site or an application can also significantly reduce the loading time of web pages. However, only large companies with  direct access to the front-end machines, whether they’re placed in-house or at a colocation hosting provider, can hope to optimize the website performance by working on the support hardware.  Small and medium size companies  usually rely on a web hosting provider,  so it is not always possible for them to choose the hardware that is right for them. They can, however,  impro...
