Leading Linux and Windows Dedicated Service Provider Pre-Bundles Virtuozzo and Plesk

Herndon, VA — October 27, 2005 — Today, SWsoft (, an established leader in server automation and virtualization software, announced that Layered Technologies (, a leading dedicated hosting service provider, has launched eight new virtual private server (VPS) offerings based on SWsoft’s Virtuozzo bundled with Plesk. Virtuozzo is a high performance server virtualization solution that creates multiple isolated VPSs on a single physical server to maximize hardware, software and administrative efficiency. Layered Technologies currently offers Virtuozzo for Linux VPSs powered by Plesk and now offers Virtuozzo for Windows with Plesk.

“We are proud to introduce eight new VPS packages that take full advantage of the integration and features Virtuozzo offers when combined with Plesk,” said Todd Abram, President, Layered Technologies. “Our Linux solution has been immensely successful and we are excited to add a Windows VPS solution with the same command line, API and GUI that our customers are familiar with through our Linux offering.”

“Virtuozzo is quickly becoming the quintessential solution adding profitable revenue options to more Web hosting providers,” said Kurt Daniel, director of marketing, SWsoft. “With the addition of Virtuozzo for Windows used in combination with Plesk, hosting service providers can increase their revenue through a range of services including advanced shared, split dedicated, dynamic dedicated and split shared. Layered Technologies is a rapidly growing customer that exemplifies our efforts to constantly innovate and develop solutions that support and contribute to their growth.”

The Only Solution for VPS Windows Hosting
SWsoft already powers more than 100,000 servers and more than 250,000 VPSs worldwide. Virtuozzo for Windows fully supports .NET, Exchange, SQL Server, SharePoint and IIS, and is the only true VPS technology on the market offering a full spectrum of service offerings including:

  • VPSVPS services provide a level of security and reliability and flexibility (with optional root access and application sets) above shared hosting services, while maintaining the same customer density and profitability of shared hosting.

  • Dynamic Server — A high-end VPS offering with more resource guarantees and fewer customers on a server. Easy upgrades, burstable resources and customer troubleshooting and recovery tools all make Dynamic Servers a better service than dedicated servers. Dynamic Servers also utilizes server resources more effectively and enables much higher profitability and lower cost of entry for service providers.

  • Dynamic Dedicated Server — Serve one dedicated customer on a single Virtuozzo instance with advanced self-management tools. Eliminate the danger of DDoS and easily migrate customers between physical servers for planned downtime and upgrades.

  • Split Dedicated — Add Virtuozzo to a dedicated server to provide a powerful service offering that enables the customer to isolate any application on the server. Split dedicated enables launching a complete web or other type of online business with a very low cost of entry and an extensive set of tools.

  • Split Shared — Provide Shared Services in different Virtuozzo VPSs to provide a level of security, isolation and improved management to limit the impact of downtime, application conflicts and DDoS risks. Service providers will especially benefit from included management capabilities such as backups and the ability to move VPSs between physical servers with a few mouse clicks.

  • Advanced Shared — Provide shared hosting in a VPS with customized application sets, seamless scalability and optional root control level, while maintaining shared hosting customer density, simplicity, profit and automation levels.
