Dallas, TX – Limestone Networks, a leading cloud IaaS, dedicated server hosting, and colocation provider, has unveiled a complete product line refresh with a focus on the increasing trend toward dense, high throughput bare-metal servers. They have introduced new high-end single and dual processor servers to their product lines. “Our custom spec build department has seen a significant uptick in high core-count, high throughput dual-processor server requests over the last 12 months”, VP Preston Gosdin states, “so satisfying that need with our new standard stock offering was a top priority. Customers no longer need to special order high end CPUs such as the E5-2690 v4, because they are now included as normal stock servers on our order form.” Also offered are the new E3-1200 v6 series CPUs, along with the high core-count E5-1600 v4 CPUs.

Limestone expects the trend toward these high-end offerings to continue as more and more customers virtualize, containerize, and cloud-enable their applications. Bundle these new server offerings with Limestone’s top notch managed support packages, high-end network, and diverse software licensing options, to experience quality hosting at unrivaled prices in the bare-metal hosting market.


To set themselves completely apart from the competition, Limestone also announced that 100 TB (terabytes) of outbound bandwidth is now included with all normal stock dedicated server packages. In this market quality hosting companies rarely offer more than 30TB of bandwidth bundles with their servers, Limestone has changed the game by offering this extremely high throughput on servers costing as little as $138 per month. This offering is on Limestone’s world class hosting network comprising of more than 100 GBps of internet capacity, 5+ carriers, and soon expanding to multiple regions. The value of this default bandwidth availability is another example of how Limestone Networks is leading the dedicated hosting industry to the next level.

If you are in the hosting business and are seeking a hosting provider with a proven network, and now a new product lineup that includes high end single and dual CPUs or high core-count CPUs, then Limestone Networks should be on your list of established cloud, IaaS and dedicated server hosting providers.

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

Data centers these days are busy replacing expensive hardware solutions with "software-defined" everything, but the trend is the opposite when it comes to security. While software still prevails in keeping servers secure, hardware is often being added to the mix as another layer of protection, especially during the boot process, when a computer is vulnerable to dangers such as maliciously modified firmware.
This trend started when UEFI — and Secure Boot — replaced BIOS on computers, and was carried a step further when Google began including an additional custom designed hardware security chip on all servers and peripherals in its data centers. In June, Hewlett Packard Enterprise followed suit and announced it was joining the secured-by-hardware crowd by including its own custom chip on its Gen10 servers. Lenovo also includes a degree of security-on-a-chip technology on its line of servers, through XClarity Controller.
There are several advantages to having security protections contained in chipsets that are separate from a server's CPUs. Being isolated from the server's main components, they are more difficult for an outside hacker who manages to get through a system's defenses to find and penetrate. In addition, they can utilize read-only memory that can be difficult or impossible to modify.
