Reston, Virginia – So far in 2017, ServInt has announced the launch of three new hosting products, increased its software offerings, and added to its technical support options. And, effective today, the company is also offering a new line of Flex Dedicated Servers.

These reimagined Flex Dedicated Server solutions provide leading edge hardware that will enhance performance by allowing website pages to load faster. With on-board SSD hard drive options, it’ll give you even faster read and write times, Time To First Byte (TTFB), and higher data transfer rates. These increased speeds will allow people to browse websites quicker and easier, and likely stay on sites for longer periods of time.


ServInt’s new Flex Dedicated Server packages also come standard with ServInt’s SimpleScale™ technology, which allows customers to upgrade and downgrade their server’s RAM and storage seamlessly. Since there’s no need to reboot a server to perform an upgrade, users won’t even notice the change. Similarly, the company is able to quickly and easily upgrade or downgrade servers between different pieces of server hardware.

“Today we’re redefining the dedicated hosting experience; we’re providing more power, performance, and value than ever before – while using our technology to make managing dedicated servers a breeze for our clients,” said ServInt CEO Reed Caldwell.

These Flex Dedicated Servers are complete hosted solutions that provide substantially more resources and features than traditional bare metal solutions. Customers receive a secure and scalable server that comes with off-server backups, LAMP stack, cPanel/WHM, as well as the peace of mind knowing their server is being expertly cared for.

ServInt’s new Flex 4 Core package starts at $189 per month, and includes 16 GB of RAM and 750 GB of HDD Storage, or with 150 GB of SSD storage for just $199 monthly. For those who need even more speed and power – like those who host their website, company information, database and other items on a single server – the Flex 16 Core is the perfect solution. With 64 GB of RAM and 1.5 TB of hardware RAID 10 Storage, starting at just $449 on a monthly basis, this server can store a large amount of data while still giving you the speed, resources, and redundancy you need for quick and efficient operations.

(Bloomberg) — VMware Inc. stock has gained almost 50 percent since last October, riding a wave of optimism about a partnership with Amazon.com Inc. that was meant to save the software maker from oblivion as customers shifted more of their systems to the cloud.
The accord was announced with fanfare last year as a way for VMware to keep close ties to clients even as they move to internet-based computing – a business Amazon dominates, and one where VMware lagged. It was seen as a win for all parties. Customers that rely on VMware's software for making servers more efficient could move some of their applications – for whatever the task, be it billing, payroll or email – over to Amazon's cloud service without having to completely rewrite them. The resulting product, VMware Cloud on AWS, was released on Monday, with VMware Chief Executive Officer Pat Gelsinger and Amazon Web Services CEO Andy Jassy touting the release at VMware's big annual conference in Las Vegas.

Here's the problem: there's nothing keeping Amazon from developing its own competing set of products down the road. Should that happen, VMware would be poised to lose customers – including some that it helped introduce to Amazon Web Services through this partnership.
"We'll have to see how this relationship evolves over the next three to five years, but that is the thing that VMware will have to navigate very

Brought to you by MSPmentor
It's being called a 500-year storm and Houston, Texas-based Elevated Technologies finds itself smack in the middle of it.
As early as the middle of last week, the managed services provider (MSP) began reaching out to clients, preparing the organizations as much as humanly possible for the fury of Hurricane Harvey.
Four Providers' Houston Data Centers Online, but Access Roads Flooded
But despite the best-laid plans, the extent of damage to the state's Gulf Coast still came as a shock.
"No one really anticipated this," Jason Rorie, founder of Elevated Technologies, told MSPmentor today.
"I don't think anyone really anticipated the kind of flooding that Houston would be subject to," he added. "The city is basically underwater."
Task number one for the MSPs five-member team was ensuring customers' data would survive.
"We started talking really on Wednesday when they projected where it would hit," Rorie said. "First thing we did is make sure that all of our clients, all of their offsite backups were running successfully. We use Veeam and StorageCraft."
As the storm neared landfall on Friday afternoon, the MSP began instructing clients to shut down on-premises servers before those employees left for the day.
"The flooding causes power outages and once your UPS (uninterruptible power supply) batteries drain and your servers crash, that's when problems really start," Rorie said.
The hope is that once the storm
