HC Enhanced US Bare-Metal Dedicated Servers

Host Color Enhances Bare-Metal Dedicated Servers

HostColor's announced the immediate availability of high bandwidth Bare Metal Dedicated Servers. The company also offers 10 Gbps Dedicated Server in 50 U.S. edge data center locations with 10 Gbps, 20 Gbps, or 30-gigabit bandwidth rate ports and unrestricted data transfer.

The company has also launched Fully Managed Cloud Infrastructure service plans delivered from its Midwest U.S. data center, based out of Royal Oak, Detroit. The Managed plans are available with all Public, Private and Hybrid Clouds.

HC Managed Public Cloud Servers include initial setup; installation of Windows or Linux based operating system; antivirus and anti-spam protection; configuration of the Public or a Private Cloud environment to the client's custom settings; regular maintenance and updates of all software programs and applications; 24/7/365 resource monitoring; security updates; system reboots, cloud instance recovery; data backups.

The Managed Public Cloud Servers are used for hosting of websites, mail servers and various software applications accessible via public Internet connection.

The Managed Hosted Private Clouds are configured on demand to support certain workloads that organizations need to move to "the cloud". They are not visible over the public Internet. The Private Clouds are secure computing instances created for internal use and organizations operate them behind firewalls and access them through virtual private networks.

According to the HostColor CEO, Dimitar Avramov "Managed Clouds means that HC provides technical support from A to Z, from planning and setting up any computing instance to backing it up and recovering it whenever necessary".

"In terms of quality the Host Color's Cloud Infrastructure services match those of the 'Major Clouds'. However, unlike them we don't charge for technical support on our Unmanaged Cloud service plans. The infrastructure support is included and is always 24/7", adds the Host Color's CEO.

All Clouds - Public, Private and Hybrid ones - are provisioned and hosted on top of the Host Color's Cloud Computing infrastructure built with VMware ESXi - arguably the world's most reliable virtualization technology, used by organizations that need to have an IT infrastructure with 100% availability. The HC clients' data is hosted on a Storage Area Network (SAN), which features built-in protection and safeguards the information under any circumstances without performance impact.
