(Gawkwire) – Parallels Gold Partner, ViUX Systems announces deployment of Parallels Cloud Server (PCS) 6.0 for High-Availability Managed Cloud Hosting and Cloud Storage on new Dell PowerEdge C6220 Servers.
Parallels Cloud Server is now the foundation upon which all ViUX services will be provisioned going forward and marks a critical step in the evolution of the ViUX Cloud, as it now includes revolutionary Parallels Cloud Storage technology, which significantly improve the availability and performance of ViUX Cloud Servers – as provisioned upon new state-of-the-Internet Dell PowerEdge C-Series Servers.
Parallels Cloud Server allows ViUX to provision both VPS Containers and Hypervisors on the same physical servers. This flexibility lets ViUX take advantage of the scalability and streamlined management of Operating System Virtualization (Containers); while also making use of Hardware Virtualization (Hypervisors) to create Virtual Machines (VMs) – all deployed on top of Parallels Cloud Storage.
Parallels Cloud Storage combines and pools the disk space on ViUX servers into a single large storage cluster to deliver Cloud Storage at a fraction of the cost of competing solutions. When used to deploy Virtual Servers, Parallels Cloud Storage eliminates the physical server as a potential single point of failure, for high-availability Cloud Hosting.
ViUX Systems was one of the first Hosting Providers to announce deployment of Parallels Cloud Server back in February as a beta offering just prior to the Parallels Summit 2013 in Las Vegas. At that time the ViUX beta deployment of PCS made use of Dell PE C6105 Servers with AMD Processors; 96GB of Memory; & SATA Drives.
The live production deployment of PCS by ViUX uses new Dell PE C6220 Servers with: Intel E5-2630 Processors; 128GB of Memory; 5x900GB 10K SAS Drives; & 1x100GB SSD – per each of 12 nodes within the initial deployment. The complete configuration and deployment details are published in the ViUX Blog at: ViUX Deploys 54TB Cloud Storage Cluster Using Parallels Cloud Server 6.0 on Dell PowerEdge Cloud (6220) Servers.
Parallels Cloud Server includes: Parallels Containers, the highest density, highest performance Cloud Server Virtualization solution (formerly Parallels Virtuozzo Containers) – enabling near instant provisioning with no operating system updates required by the customer; and Parallels Hypervisor (formerly Parallels Server Bare Metal) – giving ViUX the flexibility to create Virtual Machines for customers who prefer to manage and maintain their own operating systems; all controlled by Parallels Business Automation, which is the hosting automation and billing system from Parallels that ViUX has used since 2006.
Using Parallels Cloud Server and other software systems from Parallels, ViUX has deployed a super-efficient and highly automated Cloud Hosting Infrastructure from which a wide range of Web Hosting and Managed Cloud Services are offered, such as: Shared Cloud Hosting; Private Cloud Servers; Dynamic Dedicated Servers, etc. that appeal to the broadest possible customer base.
