Mondoo to Launch Low-Cost Web Hosting and Virtual Private Servers Based on Parallels Software

October 28, 2008

PARIS, France and RENTON, Wash., October 28, 2008 — Parallels today announced that Mondoo, a leading French hosting company, is using Parallels virtualization and automation tools to offer web hosting and virtual private servers. The offerings are aimed at small and medium businesses with basic technical skills that require low-cost hosting solutions. Parallels Virtuozzo Containers and Parallels Automation, developed for hosters and their customers, enable Mondoo to meet this demand with competitively priced self-service hosting offerings.

"The decision to use Parallels solutions was by far, the best decision we have made to date," says Julien Mellul, CEO of Mondoo. "It has allowed us to automate and grow our business while reducing support overhead."

Parallels Virtuozzo Containers provides the most efficient virtualization technology for delivering high-volume services by creating isolated compartments on a single physical server and OS instance. The solution includes customized management tools to manage internal and external users, providing Mondoo with stable, reliable hosting solutions.

Running Parallels Virtuozzo Containers to optimize hardware resources, Mondoo is able to supply shared hosting over Parallels Plesk Control Panel and Virtual Private Server (VPS), with the ability for end customers to choose operating system, web traffic, disk space, and CPU. VPS hosting provides improved isolation, security, and management above shared hosting services at a lower cost than a dedicated server.

Parallels Automation is an operations support system (OSS) for enterprises and service providers who want to automate the delivery of server-based applications and resources, while reducing operational costs. To help new hosting customers to set up their website quickly, Mondoo offers Parallels Plesk Sitebuilder, an easy to use, scalable web application designed to create and manage websites. Customers get one easy-to-use interface for adding and removing web applications, and can install new applications with just a few clicks.

"In using the full range of Parallels products designed for hosting customers and providers, Mondoo is able to meet their customers’ needs at a very attractive price," said Serguei Beloussov, CEO of Parallels. "The Parallels Open Platform enables a solution with integrated tools and minimal overhead and we’re happy that the APS standard is able to simplify their application installation and management."

The Parallels Open Platform enables hosting with Parallels virtualization and automation technology through integration with a wide range of third-party applications and systems. The Application Packaging Standard (APS), a key element of the platform, is used by ISVs and service providers to seamlessly integrate applications to offer to the more than 10 million businesses and individuals that use Parallels products.
