May 18, 2004

Switch from “Free” UML to Virtuozzo Increases Profit Per Server by 300 Percent; Virtuozzo Continues to be Preferred Solution for Companies Deploying VPS

Philadelphia, PA, and Herndon, VA, May 18, 2004 – TekTonic, the leading Web hosting provider of virtual private servers (VPS), today announced it has ended the use of free UML (User-Mode-Linux), and has switched to Virtuozzo™ from SWsoft, the established leader in hosting automation and server virtualization software, to manage their growing VPS business.

“From the beginning, we immediately recognized the benefits of switching from UML to Virtuozzo,” said Matt Ayres, President, TekTonic. “UML placed us on the right path, but Virtuozzo is saving us thousands of dollars and man hours per month, affording us the ability to scale to new heights of providing the most comprehensive VPS.”

TekTonic will leverage SWsoft to expand its solution portfolio and attract new customers looking for a more efficient and cost-effective way to manage their business. Virtuozzo is licensed per server and per CPU power and offers both command line and GUI tools.

“Our customers are assured to do more with Virtuozzo including more VPS per physical server and more revenue per VPS,” said Tim O’Rourke, Vice President of Business Development and Sales, SWsoft. “TekTonic selected Virtuozzo because it’s the only true VPS that streamlined its operations, lowered customer support cost, and was focused on lowering its total cost of ownership.”

Separate And Equal: The VPS Advantage
