In advance of the Parallels Summit 2013 next week in Las Vegas, Parallels Gold Partner, ViUX Systems announces deployment of Parallels Cloud Server for high-availability Managed Cloud Hosting on new Dell PowerEdge C-Series servers. In recent weeks ViUX added DomainsBot API to help find Premium Domains on Sedo, launched an affiliate referral program, enabled Smarter Tools API for instant provisioning of license keys for SmarterMail, SmarterStats and SmarterTrack and offered SmarterTools Software Bundle. In a recent interview with DailyHostNews, Mr. Jonathan Smith, CEO, ViUX Systems, indicated that “most of the services that we offer now and will launch this year are in some way based upon a Parallels software product.” Over the coming months ViUX Systems plans to continue deploying new Dell servers and upgrading existing servers with Parallels Cloud Server software – replacing prior stand-alone deployments of Parallels Virtuozzo Containers and Parallels Server Bare-Metal, which ViUX has used successfully dating back to 2006.
Parallels Cloud Server transforms how ViUX Systems delivers Cloud Servers by combining Parallels Cloud Storage with Parallels Containers and Parallels Hypervisor – to dramatically improve the reliability, performance, and density of ViUX servers, as well as, increase profitability. It is an important step in the evolution of the ViUX Cloud, as it includes revolutionary Cloud Storage technology, which will significantly improve the availability and performance of ViUX Cloud Servers – with elastic, scalable Parallels Cloud Storage at its core.
Parallels Cloud Storage uses the existing unused disk space on ViUX servers to deliver Cloud Storage at a fraction of the cost of competing solutions. This provides for ViUX: fault tolerance (no single point of failure); high performance (equivalent to local disks versus network storage devices); and the lowest cost Cloud Storage solution available to benefit ViUX Cloud Hosting customers.
Parallels Cloud Server includes: Parallels Containers, the highest density, highest performance Cloud Server virtualization solution (formerly Parallels Virtuozzo Containers), enabling near instant provisioning with no operating system updates required by the customer; and Parallels Hypervisor (formerly Parallels Server Bare-Metal) giving ViUX the flexibility to create Virtual Machines for customers who prefer to manage and maintain their own operating systems – all controlled by the hosting automation and billing system that ViUX has also used since 2006, Parallels Business Automation Standard (PBAS).
Each Dell PowerEdge C-Series server that ViUX deploys has approximately 4TB of storage per node (with 4 nodes per server), and Parallels Cloud Storage takes this disk space and combines it into one large Cloud Storage pool upon which ViUX VPS Containers and Virtual Machines running on each node are replicated across the storage pool – for both high performance and fault tolerance. Using Parallels Cloud Server and other software systems from Parallels, ViUX has deployed a super-efficient and highly automated Cloud Hosting Infrastructure from which a wide range of Web Hosting and Managed Cloud Services are offered, such as: Shared Cloud Hosting; Private Cloud Servers; Dynamic Dedicated Servers, etc… that appeal to the broadest possible customer base.
