Fasthosts expands CloudNX

Gloucester-based Fasthosts Internet Ltd has announced it is adding Managed Stacks and Applications to its virtualised technology portfolio, CloudNX

Following last year's successful launch of CloudNX servers, leading web hosting provider Fasthosts has built on this next-generation cloud platform to introduce a new range of virtualised services. Customers now have even more options when it comes to cloud computing for their business:

  • Root Servers give users complete control to build and maintain their own unique cloud hosting environment.
  • Managed Stacks are custom software bundles that include everything a web project needs to run on the CloudNX platform. To start coding, the user simply selects their preferred database, web server and scripting language, while Fasthosts takes care of the operating system, software updates and security.
  • CloudNX provides content management systems including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, pre-installed and ready to use. Fasthosts handles the infrastructure, leaving the user with more time to focus on their content.

CloudNX offers a range of advantages and is especially beneficial for demanding, high-traffic applications like e-commerce, and design agencies running several client websites. Multiple projects can be easily deployed via a single control panel, with processing power and memory dynamically allocated to ensure high performance.

Gavin Etheridge, Fasthosts product owner, said: "With the addition of Managed Stacks and Applications to our CloudNX product line, we can now provide customers with a very broad set of solutions for managing their web projects, without the need to sign up to any lengthy contracts.

"If our customers anticipate more traffic for promotional offers, testing or events, they can designate resources to individual projects as needed. When you need to adjust the level of resources, just make the changes within the Cloud Panel, and they'll be executed in less than one minute.

"Customers using Managed Stacks and Applications can focus 100% on their core business, while Fasthosts takes care of the first layer of infrastructure to ensure they're up to date and, vitally, secure. And, as this is fully supported in the UK by our team, we're on hand to help, speeding up the process and giving our customers more time to create the content they want. All our customers need to do is bring the code."
