Webzilla to Roll Out Public, Private and Hybrid Cloud Services


Webzilla to Roll Out Public, Private and Hybrid Cloud Services

By Erin Harrison

With demand for cloud computing growing stronger, enterprise hosting and colocation services provider Webzilla is expanding its public, private and hybrid and cloud storage services for its U.S., Europe and Asia-Pacific customers.

The ability to choose between public, private and hybrid cloud services allows enterprise customers to choose the solution that is optimized for their environments, while SMB customers typically leverage the public cloud and its ability to rapidly add capacity for peak demand, according to Konstantin Bezruchenko, CTO of XBT Holding, Webzilla’s parent company.

“Demand for cloud services is growing ever stronger,” Bezruchenko said in a statement. “Cloud computing is a powerful tool that offers great scalability and flexibility. We will not only provide all three of the principal cloud architectures, but also consulting services to help customers maximize the advantages of cloud services.”

The Aventura, Fla.-based company – which plans to roll out its cloud services in the fourth quarter of 2013 and early next year – will offer an autoscaling feature designed to allow customers the ability to specify the number of server CPUs and size of RAM and disk space to be provisioned automatically as needed.

Cloud services also benefit customers running capacity-sensitive applications and platforms such as content delivery networks, large databases and mobile video coding. Webzilla customers will also benefit from advantageous pricing due to economies of scale and not having to license third-party software, Bezruchenko added.

The project is based on an open-source server virtualization solution that is being extended and optimized for performance and reliability on XBT’s existing and planned worldwide infrastructure, company officials said.

In February, Webzilla announced the availability of Microsoft Windows Server as a managed service, in addition to Linux and the Unix-based FreeBSD, for its managed hosting customers. Webzilla partnered with Insight, Inc., a Microsoft Gold-Certified Partner under Microsoft’s Services Provider License Agreement program, for the managed Windows server service.
