Parallels, a virtualisation and automation software provider, today announced that ActiveHost will offer Windows virtual private server packages based solely on their products. It says that the new offering will be delivered by the newly created ActiveVPS division of ActiveHost.
The company states that ActiveHost is using their Parallels Virtuozzo Containers, Parallels Plesk Control Panel and Parallels Business Automation software to provide its customers with a complete platform to manage their own VPS resources and billing account information.
ActiveVPS managed hosting plans are available with pre-configured software solutions including the Parallels Plesk Control Panel for server management, SmarterTools software for business productivity, and Acronis TrueImage for server backup, adds the company.
Due to rising energy costs, ActiveHost says that it has seen increasing demand by large enterprises for economical servers to use in development and test environments.
Many businesses are bearing the strain by decreasing technical staff and capacity in their corporate datacentres. As a result, ActiveVPS expects more businesses will turn to service providers for the speed, safety and security of hosted VPS services, avers the company.
"We see our VPS offering as a hybrid service between shared and dedicated hosting, providing better security, isolation and management capabilities than traditional hosting solutions at a more attractive price," said William Platnick, director of Managed Services, ActiveHost.
"It is a great offering for small and mid-sized businesses that want control of their server, but can't afford a dedicated server package."
"ActiveHost provides service and support that exceed customer expectations and we are pleased they chose Parallels products to launch their new ActiveVPS services," said Kurt Daniel, senior vice president of marketing and online, Parallels.
"Parallels Open Platform and industry-leading virtualisation and automation technology deliver unbeatable performance and ensure lower management costs and higher overall return on investment."
