RESTON, VA – OVHcloud US, a rising cloud infrastructure provider and subsidiary of global market leader OVHcloud, announced today the launch of its latest line of virtual private servers (VPS). The new VPS line offers five customizable resource configurations, each with a wide range of software options and add-on features to address the software development, web hosting, and cloud-based application needs of individuals and businesses of all sizes.

The new OVHcloud VPS offerings deliver the features VPS users expect, including: the choice of latest Linux and Windows operating systems and popular applications like WordPress and Docker pre-installed. The OVHcloud control panel provides robust, intuitive server management which allows the user to monitor resources and dynamically resize their VPS to align with the scale of their operations. OVHcloud US VPS customers receive additional benefits at no extra cost, such as high-performance servers built and configured in-house, unlimited traffic with a maximum bandwidth of 2 gigabits per second and anti-DDoS protection.


OVHcloud US VPS pricing starts as low as $3.50 per month, with no long-term contracts. Even more attractive pricing is available for those who opt for an extended engagement paid monthly, with additional discounts for paying up-front. No ingress or egress fees and plus the availability to add paid options include extra disks, snapshots, fail-over IP addresses and automated backups give customers the combination of price predictability and freedom unavailable anywhere else.

“Our latest VPS solution is extremely easy to set-up and manage – empowering users to fully-leverage the flexibility that accompanies virtualization,” said Jeffrey Gregor, General Manager of OVHcloud US. “Because we completely control our value chain of servers, data centers, and backbone network, we can deliver a VPS with all of the features and functions that distinguish OVHcloud from the competition at an affordable and transparent price.”

Driven by the e-commerce web site explosion, the global market for VPS was estimated to be $1.1 billion in 2018 and is projected to grow to over $2.5 billion by 2025, according to research by Global Market Insights. A VPS allows hosting web sites and web-based software applications on a single virtual machine. VPS customers realize the same security, control and reliability benefits they would receive from a physical server, without the limitations of a shared hosting plan. These advantages come at a lower price point than the dedicated physical server alternative and relieve customers of the burden of managing the server’s hardware.

CHICAGO, IL – NTT Ltd., one of the world’s largest data center and technology services providers, today announced that its Global Data Centers Americas division is rapidly passing several key construction milestones as it targets an opening date for a new Chicago data center campus by early 2021. This campus will be a key strategic addition to NTT Ltd.’s global data center portfolio, which operates the third-largest data center platform in the world, with over 160 data centers spanning more than 20 countries and regions.

Located near Chicago in Itasca, Illinois, NTT’s new 19-acre campus will have two buildings offering a total of 72 megawatts of critical IT load. Each of the two buildings will offer 36 megawatts and 250,000 sq. ft. of space spread over two stories. The first six megawatts of critical IT load will be available by early 2021.


“The first building on our Chicago Data Center campus is standing up its core and shell now,” said Doug Adams, President and CEO of NTT Global Data Centers Americas (formerly known as RagingWire Data Centers). “By using modular construction techniques, economies of scale, and carefully planned supply chain management, we have lowered construction costs and will be able to affordably offer all the space and critical IT power needed to help companies grow and scale their data center presence as their business needs evolve.”

NTT chose to build in Chicago because of a compelling list of benefits for data center customers. Chicago has an extensive fiber network, affordable electricity, minimal risk of natural disasters, nearby airports, and abundant amenities. In addition, Illinois recently passed a bill that exempts qualifying data centers from paying state and local sales tax on equipment such as servers and storage racks.

“Tax incentives make Chicago one of the most affordable national markets for data center clients,” said Andy Cvengros, Senior Vice President of JLL. “We anticipate that an uptick in leasing activity will occur in 2020, with major cloud companies continuing to expand in the Chicagoland market.”

The two data centers on NTT’s Chicago campus will be designed with customizable high-density vaults in order to support both single-user and colocation requirements of hyperscale cloud and enterprise clients. Power and cooling systems will offer a 100% availability SLA by leveraging a “4 to make 3 design” to provide N+1 redundancy at the rack level.

Choices for network connectivity will be plentiful in a carrier-neutral environment with access to many global and regional carriers, Internet service providers, and cloud services. Clients will be supported 24x7x365 by highly-trained staff experts in operations, facilities management, security, and shipping & receiving.

Itasca is in a prime area for wholesale data centers, which includes Franklin Park and Elk Grove Village. Data center customers will appreciate NTT’s campus location in the Hamilton Lakes Business Park, at the intersection of the new Elgin O’Hare Expressway (I-390) and I-355. Hamilton Lakes Business Park is only 15 minutes from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport and features the Westin Hotel, the Hamilton Lakes Athletic Club, a daycare center, walking paths around lakes, and various restaurants and delicatessens.

Downtown commuters will find easy access to NTT’s Chicago Data Center Campus through the use of DASH cars, which are 100 percent electric vehicles that go from the Itasca Metra Station to the business park in just a few minutes.

Alert Logic’s managed detection and response capabilities add a valuable security layer to the solution, providing a unique combination of award-winning SaaS security platform, continuous threat research and analytics, and 24/7 security experts.


“Alert Logic enabled us to add critical capabilities to our Data Security Cloud and make it even more powerful in addressing the needs of modern organizations,” said Ian McClarty, President at phoenixNAP. “Given that many businesses do not have the resources or knowledge to implement the right protection, DSC solves their challenge by providing easy and affordable access to enterprise-grade technologies.

On April 16, phoenixNAP and Alert Logic will partner for a webinar: “How to Recognize Cyber-Attack Symptoms and Ensure Infrastructure Health.” In the webinar, Alert Logic’s Jack Danahy, SVP and Chief Evangelist and phoenixNAP’s William Bell, SVP of Product will discuss the new partnership and why managed detection and response is best positioned to help companies address their cybersecurity skills gap and today’s increasingly complex threat landscape.

Los Angeles, CA – AlphaRacks, a premium infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) provider based out of California currently in a phase of growth-through-acquisition, is today pleased to announce that it has closed on the acquisition of HostMyBytes, a provider of virtual hosting services. This acquisition adds 23,000 customers to AlphaRacks’ platform, now serving over 100,000 customers worldwide.

The Los Angeles based IaaS company is actively acquiring cloud computing, virtual hosting, and technology-enabled firms in the industry, most recently also acquiring NFPHosting and WootHosting early 2019, who were previously competitors in the IaaS space. AlphaRacks is actively acquiring other United States-based companies where customers can benefit from the economies of scale and operational efficiencies that AlphaRacks can add to the table, using its years of industry experience and available resources.


“This year, as a company, we are in an ideal point which enables us to grow via client acquisition, and the HostMyBytes acquisition is a continued testament to that. AlphaRacks continues to add functional and integrable assets to our hosting portfolio that are in hot-performing markets,” said Julian Jin, managing director with AlphaRacks. “Our new investment serves 23,000 new customers from over 105 different countries and will allow us to expand our global presence even further.”

HostMyBytes has been in business for over five years and hosts more than eighty thousand domains on its global network. The company’s goal is to further streamline a personalized hosting solution to meet the rising technology demands of businesses today. AlphaRacks plans to leverage company resources, assets and implement its operational efficiencies to add order in place for HostMyBytes customers, similar to its successful strategy for its prior acquisitions in the IaaS space.

“We express eager enjoyment and passion to welcome all HostMyBytes customers onto the AlphaRacks platform.” commented Julian Jin. “We will be adding HostMyBytes customers into the AlphaRacks brand seamlessly, so that customers can immediately take advantage of the additional operational and support benefits we offer by standard. Customers of HostMyBytes will also be pleased to know that we won’t be changing any existing pricing arrangements that were agreed upon with previous management.” commented Julian Jin.

He further states, “HostMyBytes has been in business for five years and initially began with humble beginnings. Despite growing pains, we applaud previous HostMyBytes owners for maintaining and building an affordable hosting experience for its multiple dozens of customers from around the globe. We strive on improving upon everything they have built so far, from infrastructure to customer experience – and everything will be done with our customer’s benefit in mind.”
