LOS ANGELES – Whether your data traverses the globe or between clouds, there is a business and legal barrier. From a business perspective, different cloud providers have competing goals, so the collaboration of clouds is incompatible.

Governments also regulate the flow information for safety and security reasons. As a result, many governments pay meticulous attention to how information is stored and disseminated. This raises the barriers to entry for companies wanting to expand to sensitive locations.


To overcome the barriers to entry, Zenlayer launched a way to connect cloud servers and data centers around the world, which can be deployed in minutes. The new service is called Zenlink and is now available to all cloud service providers.

Zenlayer allows companies to connect clouds with different geographic locations as well as different cloud providers. Zenlayer uses a dedicated connection to reduce latency and increase security between data centers. This preserves transfer reliability and enables pay-per-use.

Before Zenlink was introduced, companies would take weeks to provision their cloud infrastructure, which would incur heavy service fees to maintain. Now companies can connect their clouds instantly and seamlessly with Zenlink.

About Zenlayer
Zenlayer enables companies to quickly deploy and manage their global infrastructure so that they can globalize their business within minutes. Zenlayer provides hosting and software defined networking services, including bare metal servers, SD-WAN, and edge computing. Zenlayer was founded in 2014 and have expanded to 77 data centers across six continents. Zenlayer is headquartered in Los Angeles and Shanghai with offices in Singapore, Beijing, Shenzhen and Hong Kong. At Zenlayer, we believe in powering a better connected world.

LOS ANGELES, CA – DreamHost®, a leader in web hosting and cloud services for WordPress users worldwide, today announced that select users of its managed WordPress service, DreamPress, will be able to receive the advanced benefits of Automattic’s Jetpack at no extra charge. In a bold move to gain the adoration of its users and the ire of its competitors, DreamHost has announced that DreamPress Plus and DreamPress Advanced users will now receive access to Jetpack Professional, a $299/year value, at no extra charge.

DreamPress users have long enjoyed Automattic’s Jetpack plugin for the additional functionality it enables within WordPress. Among its many features, Jetpack’s free option includes an image CDN, in-depth website statistics, downtime monitoring, and a buttload of other enhancements. Jetpack Professional adds a video CDN with no bandwidth restrictions, comprehensive spam protection, daily backups powered by VaultPress, automated and on-demand malware scans, access to over 200 high-quality premium themes, advanced SEO tools, and priority access to WordPress experts at Automattic.


DreamPress Basic users will continue to receive access to Jetpack’s free offering, while DreamPress Plus and DreamPress Advanced users both receive immediate access to Jetpack Professional, the most comprehensive Jetpack offering available.

“This here? This is a Professional Jetpack,” explained John Robison, DreamHost’s Director of Product, Managed WordPress. Standing alongside a row of gleaming silver jetpacks in a cavernous showroom he continued: “The Premium Jetpacks? They’re good, too. Good for lots of folks. But our customers…they deserve the best. And this is the best. Professional’s got over 200 premium themes, deep Google Analytics integration, and SEO tools like you’ve never seen. Check this out.” Robison pushed a button on his belt and immediately launched himself, and his WordPress website, through the roof of the showroom.

After several minutes of awkward silence, Robison stumbled through the front door of the building, bloody and bruised. His Jetpack, however, remained free of blemishes, gleaming and pristine as the day it rolled off the assembly line. “Wrong button,” Robison offered sheepishly. “But you can see the kind of power this thing’s got, right? Good stuff.”

Jetpack Professional is immediately available to all DreamPress Plus and Advanced users, both current and new. New customers need only opt-in to Jetpack Professional from within their DreamHost control panel to begin receiving the benefits of a powerful, supercharged WordPress experience at DreamHost.
