Canadian web hosting provider Cirrus Tech (www.cirrustech.com) announced on Tuesday it has updated its VPS hosting plans, which are designed to replace the company's lower end dedicated servers.
This marks the second major update to Cirrus Tech's VPS plans. In February, the web host began offering Parallels Plesk Panel 9 control panel on its Linux virtual private server hosting plans.
As a cost-effective alternative to a dedicated server, the company's new hosting plans range from VPS plans with minimal services, to VPS plans with dedicated server like resources.
This latest update focuses on enhancing Cirrus Tech's larger VPS plans to perform more like a dedicated server by assigning higher resources to their larger VPS plans and using more powerful servers.
Last year, Cirrus Tech made a significant investment in its data center by shifting towards a more modular-based data center that uses the latest Dell Blade Servers with multi core processors.
Cirrus Tech's larger VPS plans are housed in these upgraded blade servers, which offer increased performance, stability and energy efficiency.
"We wanted to provide a hosting solution for potential clients thinking of eventually moving to a dedicated server, but didn't quite require the full resources of a dedicated server at the start," says Cirrus Tech CEO Ehsan Mirdamadi. "Our client can start with a lower VPS plan at a cheaper price, and when their resource requirements increase, they can easily upgrade to a larger VPS plan with dedicated server like resources easily."
Powered by Parallel's Virtuozzo technology, Cirrus Tech's VPS hosting services are offered in five plans on either Windows or Linux.
VPS customers have full root/admin access to their Linux or Windows VPS and can install and run any supported applications.
Each VPS container is an isolated environment and include dedicated resources assigned only to their VPS container.
