PARIS, France, and HERNDON, Va., March 7, 2007 – Dedibox, a subsidiary of the Iliad Group, today announced it has selected SWsoft Plesk control panel software to simplify the management of its dedicated servers.
Dedibox is a dedicated server rental service that offers hosting services based on an internally-designed service of the same name, "Dedibox." Dedibox subscribers - both business and private users – wanted a simple and complete interface to manage their web sites on their own dedicated servers. Plesk 8.1 provided a solution that made it easier for subscribers to administer services without the technical know-how usually required in a Unix environment.
"As a simplified technical environment, Plesk has met with overwhelming approval from our subscribers and provides the perfect answer to their technical and practical requirements," said Arnaud de Bermingham, operations manager, Dedibox.
"With Dedibox we are pleased to have found an excellent ISP who has been identified for its technical expertise and its broad user base," said Soeren von Varchmin, director of European and Asian Operations, SWsoft. "We are fully confident that Dedibox subscribers will find value in these new Plesk offers and their integration with third-party vendors, applications and systems as a result of our ongoing OPEN FUSION initiative."
