ServInt Introduces SolidFire SSD VPS, the First Small-Business Optimized Cloud Hosting Platform to Offer Complete Resource Guarantees Including IOPS, to Solve Virtualization’s “Noisy Neighbor Problem”

ServInt, an innovative provider of managed cloud hosting for businesses worldwide, today introduced its new SolidFire SSD VPS product line, designed to dramatically increase the speed and reliability of small-business web sites.

The SolidFire SSD VPS is a complete reimagining of ServInt’s decade-old VPS platform, redesigned from the ground up to solve the longstanding problems of VPS environments faced by the entire web and cloud hosting industry.

ServInt focused its redesign efforts on maximizing speed, resource transparency, and delivering complete resource-performance guarantees at every level. The resulting new platform couples the raw speed of massive SSD storage arrays with performance guarantees, including disk-speed performance guarantees enabled by SolidFire, at price points that make SolidFire and SSD accessible to small businesses for the very first time anywhere.

Perhaps the greatest advantage offered by ServInt’s SolidFire SSD VPS is the elimination of disk-resource contention, or “the noisy neighbor problem.” Until the introduction of SolidFire storage technology, VPS-based hosting service providers had no means of ensuring that their customers were getting their fair share of disk input/output resources – particularly if there was a “neighbor” on their server who was running a disk-intensive application and intermittently taking all the IOPS for themselves. Now, with its SolidFire SSD VPS, ServInt is providing real guarantees on minimum sustained IOPS, eliminating the last major server-based cause of site slow-downs for virtualized hosting customers.

“SolidFire’s IOPS QoS technology is absolutely state of the art, and we’re proud to be the only host bringing it to the small-business market,” said ServInt CEO and Founder Reed Caldwell. “Just as important, however, is the way we did it. We literally started from the ground up, building a completely new datacenter; new 10GigE network and 10GigE storage network, both with 2N redundancy; full integration of Parallels’ new PCS virtualization system; a custom tool set to allow seamless, instantaneous client provisioning and migration; and much more. This effort took the better part of a year, but we wanted to do more than just bolt a great new technology onto our hosting infrastructure. We wanted to spare no expense, and to do this better than anybody else possibly could – and that’s exactly what we did.”

ServInt CTO Matthew Loschert said, “The ServInt SolidFire SSD VPS is particularly well suited for small businesses because it provides complete resource-performance guarantees for many of the apps used by most small-business sites. This is especially true for e-commerce sites, sites that require blog caching, and sites that rely heavily on historical e-mail. Any database-driven or file-backed sites will benefit enormously from this product. Users of WordPress, Drupal, Joomla and Magento in particular will find our new product line to be highly beneficial.”

In addition to the speed and reliability advantages offered by the platform, ServInt’s SolidFire SSD VPS also offers near-instantaneous server upgrades and downgrades – i.e., true cloud scalability – as well as massive data redundancy and extremely rapid site recovery when needed.
