SWsoft, Inc., the leader in hosting automation and enterprise server software, today announced that About Web Services has selected its Virtuozzo and HSPcomplete solution. With SWsoft, About Web Services can offer more advanced shared hosting options, significantly widening the breadth and depth of its service portfolio and giving customers access to high-quality VPS services. About Web Services, a division of About.com, is a primary provider of Web hosting services and solutions with nearly three million customer accounts worldwide.
"We are pleased to launch our GlobalServers.com using both SWsoft's Virtuozzo and HSPcomplete. Our new virtual server offerings are robust, with 5/10GB service plans hosted on Linux servers. We have been offering hosting since its infancy, and want this strong feature set available to our business customers," explains Dan Handy, GM of GlobalServers and VP of About Web Services.
About Web Services selected SWsoft Inc. because of its range of capabilities. According to Aaron Mefford, Development Director at About Web Services, "Progressive VPS technology gives us the ability to offer root access and full use of all programming tools -- at amazing resource levels for reasonable prices."
SWsoft's Virtuozzo-based VPS services combine the best elements of both the dedicated and shared hosting environments. Virtuozzo partitions a single physical server into many isolated environments where each environment looks and behaves exactly like a real networked server system, complete with its own set of init scripts, users, processes, file systems, etc.
"Forward-thinking hosting companies are always looking to strengthen their services, maximize efficiencies and minimize support costs," said Serguei Beloussov, CEO of SWsoft. "HSPcomplete and Virtuozzo give About Web Services the ability to meet and exceed their customers' expectations while setting the stage for long-term and profitable growth."About SWsoft
