Siauliai, Lithuania – Ever since we opened our first data center in 2005, our ambition has been to become a key global player in the Virtual Private Server (VPS) market. With thousands of satisfied customers in over 70 countries, we’ve been able to realize our ambition and establish ourselves as a go-to provider of reliable web hosting services in Lithuania and beyond.

Now, we’re bringing two of our most popular services to the United States: Linux KVM NVMe and Windows KVM NVMe VPS hosting.


VPS hosting has been growing in popularity because it gives customers complete control over their environment, allowing them to tweak it precisely for their needs. As our customers would happily attest, VPS hosting provides increased stability and reliability over shared hosting, and it brings significant cost savings when compared with in-house hosting.

Customers that choose VPS hosting can pay only for what they really need and instantly scale their resources based on current demand. Adding more memory or purchasing additional processing power is a matter of a simple click, making VPS hosting ideal for agile startups that can go from a thousand users to millions in a matter of months or even weeks.

Our VPS hosting services are backed by high-performance NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) storage, which delivers up to 6 times better performance compared with classic SSD disks, transmitting data at up to 30 Gbps. NVMe was designed for both enterprise and client applications needing acceleration in critical data, and it eliminates bottlenecks and provides capabilities to meet the very demanding and time-sensitive requirements of cloud computing.

Because we use KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) as our virtualization infrastructure of choice, our customers can simultaneously manage several virtual machines and their configurations while enjoying superior security provided by the Linux kernel, an open-source monolithic Unix-like computer operating system kernel that powers nearly 70 percent of the top 10 million Alexa domains.

Apart from the use of cutting-edge technologies, our US customers can benefit from our strategically chosen location: Chicago. Widely known as the premier carrier hub for the Midwest, Chicago is arguably the best location in the United States for providers of hosting services, which is why it’s also home to Motorola Solutions, NetSuite, Snapsheet, Glassdoor, Sprout Social, Flexera, and many other internet-centric companies.

Of course, we’re bringing with us our core principles, which govern everything we do, and which have helped us thrive for well over 10 years. We consider our customers to be the important part of our business and provide reliable 24×7 support with guaranteed response times to help our customers solve any problems they may have in a timely manner.

We are firmly committed to providing our services at competitive prices without sacrificing reliability. Our customers benefit from a 99.97 percent network uptime guarantee, which has earned us Great Uptime Award from HostAdvice, a leading web hosting information center.

Last but not least, we at Bacloud continue to invest in new technology and improve our services in every way we can to make them more attractive to existing and new customers alike. We back everything we do with a 30-day money back guarantee because we’re confident in our services, and we encourage you to try them yourself to see what makes us stand out from the crowd.

PHOENIX, AZ – phoenixNAP®, a global IT and security services provider, offering security-focused cloud infrastructure, dedicated servers, colocation, and specialized Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) technology solutions, announced today the launch of its Security Services product offering.

“Our teams have been hard at work for nearly two years, building the foundational components needed to deliver this service to our customers,” said William Bell, Executive Vice President of Product. “We have created a 24/7 SOC, built from the ground up, working hand-in-hand with the teams that you trust to build and maintain your critical infrastructure. InfraSentry is the realization of our vision to create a truly secure Infrastructure-as-a-Service platform.”


InfraSentry from phoenixNAP is a security service suite providing customers with a holistic security solution, capable of advanced detection with active defense mechanisms, protecting our customers against potential security threats targeting your environments. Designed to complement our Infrastructure Services by adding real-time Threat Detection Services (TDS), Advanced End-Point Protection (AEP), Incident Triage (IT), and Mitigative Services (such as discounted Backup-as-a-Service Advanced), we provide our customers with a trusted, battle-tested approach, modeled on the NIST Cyber Security Framework.

As a global IT infrastructure provider, phoenixNAP is in the unique position to understand the holistic approach to security and provide a multi-layer data protection strategy. Infrastructure and security is in its DNA. InfraSentry enables organizations to access a global communication fabric, as well as a suite of comprehensive network and application monitoring systems to improve your security posture.

“We are not an audit company attempting to offer security-related services to capitalize on a market gap. Security for us is not an add-on service. It is built into the fabric of our design and the cornerstone of every service we offer. InfaSentry is a natural extension of our commitment to security. We believe that security is a basic customer expectation and it is our responsibility to provide our customers with the support necessary to keep their data safe” said Anthony Dezilva, Product Manager, Security Services.

InfraSentry complements the recent launch of phoenixNAP’s Data Security Cloud, a regulatory compliant cloud infrastructure platform that supports workloads requiring stringent governing controls to support organizations’ certification needs.

To maintain the necessary level of alertness and preparedness, the phoenixNAP teams train alongside the highest levels of cyber defenders within the industry. The security teams gain battle-tested skills and contribute in return through the continued development of orchestration techniques, and the use of its global footprint to detect and operationalize threat-vector intelligence before it impacts our client base.

“InfraSentry represents a significant extension of our security services portfolio and is fundamental to our “Secure-by-Design” product focus,” said Ian McClarty, president of phoenixNAP. “With threat detection and management as a primary focus in a growing number of organizations, we are thrilled to offer a solution that responds to the immediate needs of the market.”

Every Security Operations Center Analyst at phoenixNAP is, at a minimum, certified at the CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst CySA+ (CSA+) level. Each analyst has successfully engaged in an eight-week Threat Detection, Hunting, and Incident Response curriculum, conducted under the ACTRA TUF team program.

“Security Services is a major step in the evolution of phoenixNAP’s value-added services portfolio,” said Ray Powers, Executive Vice President of Implementations. “We pride ourselves in offering painless solutions to the ever-growing compliance and security regulations needs of companies doing business via the modern internet. We have invested heavily in this global infrastructure and the training of our SOC and operations teams. We can’t wait for our customers to experience this service.”

InfraSentry relies on the best of breed, multi-tenant threat management solutions, machine learning, and incident orchestration technologies to provide critical infrastructure insights. The platform aims to identify any deviant behavior and signal the operators of a potential threat event. Different behavior patterns are gathered from both real-time collaborative and subscribed industry threat data sources, keeping current with up-to-date data of possible malicious activities. Correlating this information with Dark Web threat intelligence, we aim to actively defend our customer networks, without waiting for the first signs of impact.

“The launch of InfraSentry is a major milestone for our team and the first step in our MDR (Manage, Detect and Respond) capability. It is enhanced through Incident Orchestration and the integration of Dark Web Threat Intelligence,” said William Bell, EVP of Product. “We continue to focus on extending this service offering to help our clients further solidify their security posture.”

“Nearly two years ago, we set out on a journey to fulfill the client demand that their infrastructure provider also handles the security of their infrastructure. Designated as a “Security-First’” company, by our executive team, we began to transform our product offerings and our operations to not only meet but exceed that goal. More than realizing our goal of building the most robust security offering available, we are thrilled to announce that InfraSentry can support and enhance the Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability (CIA Triad) of your critical infrastructure.” said Anthony Dezilva, Product Manager, Security Services.
