Arlington Heights, IL – GigeNET, an innovator in resilient managed cloud and dedicated hosting, announced, through their subsidiary GigeNET Cloud, a new cloud server offering, GigeNET Cloud Lite.

“Our classic cloud product allowed for extreme levels of granular control over system resources with the ability to scale memory by the megabyte. However, this form of control is no longer a common use case. Instead, customers have grown accustomed to consuming public clouds in a package form, and our Lite Cloud product reflects this reality,” said Ameen Pishdadi, founder, and president of GigeNET Cloud.

GigeNET’s Lite cloud product offers self-healing SAN, high availability, live migrations, seamless failover, fastest route optimization, and much more.

Cloud Lite comes in three forms Balanced, Core, and Max:

  • Cloud Lite Balanced offers a standard mix of both memory and compute power allocation. These cloud servers provide a best of breed experience for a wide range of applications.
  • Cloud Lite Core offers an increased amount of compute necessary for applications that are CPU intensive. The Core family is suited for high computational scientific workloads, high-trafficked websites, and online gaming.
  • Cloud Lite Max offers increased memory for high-performance applications. The Max family is excellent for dev environments, performance-intensive databases, and the like. In the next iteration of Max packages, memory will scale up to 64GB with possible future increases likely.

“GigeNET Cloud Lite may not have the same level of control as our classic offering, but, like our classic cloud product, it does score consistently higher in both performance and reliability tests when compared to other clouds. We wanted to make sure we kept the innovations GigeNET is known for without compromise and I think the team did just that,” Joe De Paolo, SVP of Products at GigeNET.

GigeNET’s Cloud Lite offering runs on their standardized KVM platform backed Xeon-D hardware for consistent high-performance and availability.

IBM announced that its managed container service model based on Kubernetes, IBM Cloud Container Service, will now be able to run on bare metal servers. The IBM Cloud Container Service helps organizations to run data and processor workloads with high level of speed and capacity. Containers help developers to easily move data across systems, and enable multiple people to operate on different parts of the app altogether. However, it needs consistent management to run containers on bare metal. The new functionality from IBM will help developers to implement the advantages of containers to the data, apps and workloads that need high computing performance, like machine learning workloads and sensitive datasets. “On IBM Cloud, Kubernetes can now fit into an organization’s cloud strategy no matter what that looks like; whether it’s building a completely cloud-native machine learning app, accessing servers directly to handle large data workloads or migrating data-heavy apps to the cloud,”…

Vilnius, Lithuania – Specialized in a range of high-quality virtual dedicated servers for professionals, the company Time4VPS has introduced an AES-256 encrypted VPN service. The brand new service has been launched to ensure the secure access to various online resources. VPN servers are available on three continents: Europe, North America, and Asia.

According to Time4VPS CEO Arvydas Strausas, nowadays internet users are concerned about their privacy and security. In fact, not all internet apps, such as e-mail, web, messaging, Facebook, etc., are secure. In this case, the VPN service provides extra encryption and security for transferring personal data.


“We use plenty of various applications each day. In fact, not all of them are secure. At the end of the day, insecure browsing can end up with a theft of our passwords and other personal information. Basically, the VPN service is one of the most reliable solutions to protect ourselves from this”, – says Mrs. Strausas.

By encrypting internet traffic, VPN service helps to avoid leaking of such personal data as user’s online activity or web browsing history to the third parties. For example, advertisers. Also, VPN protects against cyber criminals when using low-security networks, such as public Wi-Fi hotspot, and helps to evade country restriction.

Time4VPS offers a ready-to-use and easy to set up VPN service that allows using P2P safely. L2TP and OpenVPN protocols are available to perform fast speed, even on connections with a high latency and across great distances.

About Time4VPS
Time4VPS is a part of Lithuanian company “Interneto Vizija” which was founded in 2003 and has quickly grown to serve more than 100,000 clients across 110 different countries. Time4VPS operates its own TIER III data center in Vilnius, the geographic midpoint of Europe, with high-speed communication networks and highly qualified specialists. By combining affordable and scalable options with enterprise-level technology, Time4VPS is able to supply its customers with self-managed full-access VPS services with Linux and Windows operating systems, as well as VPN and Storage services.
