Enhancing the infrastructure options on its public cloud platform, Google has announced sole-tenant nodes for Google Compute Engine. The new instances will provide dedicated hardware for sensitive workloads. In cloud computing, generally the virtual machine (VM) instances are shared by many customers, forming a multi-tenant environment. Google has designed the sole-tenant nodes to allow enterprises use hardware for their exclusive use. Each node will be associated with one physical server, and will be the only node running on that server. The sole-tenant nodes will help companies meet the regulatory and compliance needs for sensitive workloads. The new instances will also be useful for customers who require more control over their cloud environments, and want to achieve the highest level of utilization. Additionally, customers can specify the way instances are arranged on nodes, and separate the instances with sensitive workloads from the ones with non-sensitive workloads. The…

VANCOUVER, BC – Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in enterprise computing, storage, networking solutions and green computing technology, today announced that it is offering proven cloud-scale, enterprise system configurations including the multi-node BigTwin and SuperBlade along with a 1U Cloud Storage system at the OpenStack Summit 2018, booth B9.

These proven Supermicro cloud system configurations have already been deployed across the entire range of datacenter environments including cloud service providers (CSPs), media streaming, e-commerce, social, telecommunications, semiconductor, OpenStack, artificial intelligence (AI), content delivery networks (CDN), and hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI). These systems are cloud optimized for scale-out, high performance at maximum density and software defined storage.


“Supermicro is helping enterprises accelerate their time to deployment by offering proven cloud system configurations that have already been deployed at scale in large cloud datacenters,” said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. “For rack-level optimization, Supermicro Rack Scale Design 2.1 (RSD 2.1) manages racks of disaggregated servers, storage, and networking and is tightly integrated with other datacenter management software layers such as OpenStack using the Restful Pod Manager APIs that enable end-to-end cloud infrastructure deployment. When enabled with Supermicro RSD 2.1, our 1U all-flash NVMe storage system with 32 hot-swap NVMe SSDs can share up to a half petabyte of high-performance storage with up to 12 hosts simultaneously. These 32-drive systems have already been deployed at many datacenters including one of the world’s most successful automobile companies.”

For Scale-Out Cloud applications, Supermicro’s latest four-node 2U BigTwin system leverages shared high-efficiency power supplies and large shared cooling fans to not only reduce power consumption per node but also reduce datacenter A/C costs delivering substantial TCO savings. The SuperServer 6029BT-HNC0R offers a flexible, cost-effective, dense and easy to service infrastructure platform for scale-out cloud deployments.

When highest density and lowest cost are the priorities, Supermicro’s 4U SuperBlade® with 14 dual Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor server blades and dual 10G switches based on Intel® Ethernet is the best choice. In addition to saving rack space, the SuperBlade drastically reduces the number of cables required making it easy to deploy and service. With an open management interface, the SuperBlade is non-proprietary and provides the utmost in flexibility and cost savings.

Lastly, for Cloud Storage, Supermicro’s 1U storage server (SSG-6019P-ACR12L) supports 12 hot-swap 3.5″ storage drives and four front-access 7mm NVMe or SATA SSDs. Occupying just 1U of rack space, this storage server provides a powerful dual Intel Xeon Scalable processor platform with high capacity storage, perfect for data analytics and object storage applications.

These Supermicro cloud-scale systems are based on the Intel® C622 chipset and come standard with integrated dual 10G ports per node to provide highly reliable, cost-effective, power efficient and fast 10Gb Intel Ethernet network performance. With support for add-on cards and Supermicro’s flexible SIOM network modules, these servers can be also equipped to support 100/40/25G high-speed networking options.

Hosting has a big impact on your eCommerce business. It affects the experience you can provide to shoppers, how much money you spend on infrastructure, and how easy it will be to grow your store as your business expands. Taking the time to choose eCommerce hosting wisely pays off in the future. You aren’t short of options, but the quality of hosting varies widely between providers. The last thing you want is to choose the wrong hosting provider and then be forced by poor performance and reliability to migrate in a few months. I’m going to talk about a few of the criteria you should keep in mind when assessing eCommerce hosting providers. But before we get to that, I want to address low-cost shared hosting — it isn’t worth the money. eCommerce applications like Magento and WooCommerce are resource hungry and low-cost shared hosting providers are not generous. It is better to spend a few more dollars a month from the start than have to move to a different provider because your hosting…

Arlington Heights, IL – GigeNET, an innovator in resilient managed cloud and dedicated hosting, reaffirms partnership with cPanel to mark 15 years of selling cPanel licensing.

“cPanel has been so instrumental in the creation of the hosting industry I think you would be hard pressed to imagine the web host industry without it. A lot of what we do today, be it Cloud, or IaaS, or shared, has roots in how cPanel defined the industry,” said Ameen Pishdadi, Founder and President of GigeNET.


15 years ago GigeNET sold its first cPanel license. A few months later (in 2004), GigeNET registered as an official cPanel partner. And since then has signed on numerous shared, VPS, and cloud hosting providers along with customers who want cPanel’s DevOps in a box approach.

GigeNET recently recertified all support on both cPanel and WHM Administration and System Administration certifications. On top of following cPanel certification, the GigeNET team also created their own internal study and testing materials to keep the information fresh.

“cPanel is the industry standard for server control and defined the business model for our shared hosters,” said Joe De Paolo, SVP of Products at GigeNET. “Furthermore, it is cPanel’s tiered resale-ability and ease of control that makes system administration and devops easy for the end user.”

GigeNET released new managed services last year and finalized cPanel Managed Services offerings. By combining the feature set of cPanel and GigeNET’s support customers can focus on what they love instead of system administration or developer operations of their IT environments.

“GigeNET is a valued long time cPanel Partner and has a network that is nothing short of amazing! They have proven to provide quality servers and fantastic network protection needed to succeed in hosting” says Eric Ellis, cPanel’s VP of Customer Experience.
