Liquid Web Rolls Out ‘Smart Servers’ For Cloud Computing
Lansing-based Liquid Web Inc. says its new ‘Smart Servers’ blend the best of managed, dedicated server hosting with the flexibility of pay-as-you-go cloud computing.
The company says its Smart Servers are dedicated servers with cloud computing features, backed by the company’s around the clock support, which is branded as ‘Heroic Support.’
“Let’s face it, cloud computing needs a hero,” said Liquid Web founder and CEO Matthew Hill. “Cloud computing is a nebulous term and people still disagree about the definition. As a 14-year veteran of the hosting industry, I was able to watch the technology evolve and use my experience in dedicated hosting to take the best aspects of cloud computing and make it practical, powerful and simple. The barrier to entry for cloud computing is now zero. Users want a familiar environment to manage their infrastructure, ability to scale up or down as needed easily, automatic migrations, servers with included bandwidth and unbeatable heroic support. Users now have a complete solution: Liquid Web Smart Servers.”
Hill said the Liquid Web Smart Servers Dashboard “gives you the tools to perform complex server administration tasks easily.”
Liquid Web smart servers are complete familiar dedicated servers exclusively allocated to you, with zero competition for resources. This eliminates the security concerns that come with a shared environment.
The Smart Server provisioning system was engineered by Liquid Web’s software development team in Lansing and Scottsdale, Ariz. The Smart Server provisioning system allows for powerful cloud enabled features including automatic migrations, creating one or many dedicated servers in minutes, flexible daily billing so customers pay only for what they use, cloning and resizing servers with ease, adn more.
Liquid Web says its Smart Server system eliminates many hassles of a traditional dedicated server. Automatic migrations seamlessly move your entire server environment from one hardware platform to a new hardware platform in minutes with the click of a button. If you need to upgrade to a larger CPU to accommodate for a spike in load. Simply click “resize,” pick your new hardware platform, and Smart Servers automatically migrates your data to the new hardware seamlessly.
Liquid Web Smart Servers also make advanced networking configurations easy. For security, a dedicated firewall that operates outside of your server environment is included. Private networking and redundant Zeus load balancers can all be configured easily from within the Smart Server Dashboard. It is now possible to create high availability Websites that are scalable horizontally and vertically from within one powerful interface.
Liquid Web Smart Servers also include 6,000 gigabits of bandwidth free with every server configuration.
