DigitalOcean, an American cloud infrastructure provider, launched a standalone object storage service named Spaces, to enable developers store and serve data with automatic scalability, performance, and reliability. Spaces provides automatic scalable storage, so the projects always have room to grow. It can host web assets, store user-generated content such as images and media files, with archiving backups in cloud and storing logs. Using Spaces, a Space can be created in just two clicks- Name the Space and tap Create. The permissions and metadata for one to many files can be quickly changed at once. It is useful when the developers are applying uniform permissions and metadata across a large number of files. It also provides a large ecosystem of S3-comaptible tools and libraries to manage the Space. “Spaces is the most important product we’ve released since Droplet, the first SSD-based compute instance in the market.

SAN JOSE, CA — Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT), a global data center solution provider, unveiled a new lineup of server products incorporating the Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors in mid-July. Now the company has started to deliver the new servers to Cloud Service Providers (CSP) to power its customer’s new computing frontiers for future growth. “Since QCT’s inception, our goal has been to help cloud service providers of every size to embrace data center transformation. QCT’s next-generation server platforms are a new milestone on our path to that goal,”said Mike Yang, President of QCT.

On July 11th, QCT launched their next generation of server products based on the latest Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processor, which, with its significant leaps in I/O, memory, storage and network technologies, enables QCT to make considerable upgrades to its existing portfolio. In addition to leveraging these upgrades, the QCT next-generation platforms underwent breakthrough redesigns, enhancements and innovations to form a new foundation for secure, agile solutions for CSPs.


Enhanced Performance

  • Improved Computing Performance — up to 21 percent boost in transmission efficiency.
  • Doubled Memory Capacity — support for up to 128GB per DIMMs. 1.5 times broader memory bandwidth, increasing to 6-channels per CPU.
  • Improved I/O Capacity — more PCIe lanes to support U.2 SSD and networking adapters, ensuring no scaling bottlenecks.

Reduced TCO

  • Extremely low system idle power.
  • Optional 80 Plus Titanium PSU for reducing data center power consumption.
  • Flexible I/O options, including a variety of SAS mezzanine and OCP NIC/ PHY mezzanine options, so users avoid the extra expense of unnecessary LOM or RAID controllers.
  • Advanced thermal cooling to increase the efficiency and stability of cooling subsystems.

Quick Deployment and Maintenance

  • Tool-less designs – including screwless drive trays and PCIe slot designs – greatly reduce operational cost and time.
  • Intuitive data center management with QCT System Manager (QSM) via integration with industry standard RESTful API and Rack Scale Design (RSD).
  • Ready-to-ship with whole rack, pre-stacked and pre-cabled.
  • Out-of-box configuration tailored to support hyper-converged and software-defined solutions.

This next-generation platform, based on the Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors, is the latest in a long technology partnership between QCT and Intel. QCT has been working with Intel not only on the hardware platform side, but also on the solution side to ensure its software-defined data center offerings meet the strict Intel Select Solution criteria. “We’ve been very fortunate at Intel to collaborate with QCT over about the last decade, to bring about innovations to market very quickly. One of the latest successes has been the partnership from early design through early ship on the Intel Xeon Scalable platform [as part of the] Intel Select Solutions brand,” said Jason Waxman, Corporate Vice President General Manager, Data Center Solutions, Intel. “Together, Intel and QCT are able to deliver the performance efficiency and the agile and secure infrastructure that are allowing cloud service providers to meet their end user needs across a wide variety of cloud workloads and provide for new and differentiated services,” said Jeff Wittich, Director of CSP Business Acceleration, Intel.

As the new platforms combine Intel’s most advanced CPU features and QCT’s long-term expertise serving CSP customers, many early adopters have already tested the servers and expressed positive feedback.

“We’ve worked very closely with their teams to build customized storage solutions for our internal storage infrastructure called Magic Pocket. We are constantly amazed by how much innovation they’re building into their solutions that they provide to us, as well as the flexibility and willingness to understand our requirements and the needs and workloads our users have, and then customizing those solutions to meet those needs,” said Akhil Gupta, VP of Engineering at Dropbox.
“We’re moving towards convergent systems, to reduce the total cost of ownership not only in terms of power consumption, but to optimize the existing infrastructure we have on the data center level. That is why we are committed to strong partnerships: Intel delivers the underlying technology, and QCT puts it together in a way that is usable for us at 1&1”, said Robert Hoffmann, CEO, 1&1 Internet SE.

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.

Gloucester, UK – Fasthosts Internet Ltd, a leading web and cloud hosting provider, has announced the addition of Managed Stacks and Applications to its virtualised technology portfolio.

Following last year’s successful launch of CloudNX servers, leading web hosting provider Fasthosts has built on this next-generation cloud platform to introduce an all-new range of virtualised services. Customers now have even more options when it comes to enterprise-level cloud computing, with servers, stacks and apps that can be dynamically deployed, flexed and scaled.


CloudNX services now include Root Servers, Managed Stacks, and Applications

So what are Root Servers, Managed Stacks and Applications? Root Servers are powerful and highly scalable virtual machines with full root access, representing infrastructure as a service on the CloudNX platform. Fully configurable and customisable, Root Servers give users complete control to build and maintain their own unique cloud hosting environment.

Managed Stacks are custom software bundles that include everything a web project needs to run on the CloudNX platform. To start coding, the user simply selects their preferred database, web server and scripting language, while Fasthosts takes care of the operating system, software updates and security.

When it comes to Applications, CloudNX provides content management systems including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, pre-installed and ready to use. Fasthosts handles the infrastructure, leaving the user with more time to focus on their content, with the full functionality of their chosen CMS combined with the performance of dedicated resources.

The power behind these new virtualised services is container technology. Managed Stacks and Applications are built on software containers that automatically spin up to spread the load across a cluster of cloud servers, with no single point of failure. This means higher availability and rapid failover if anything needs to be patched or rebuilt.

For users looking to upgrade from shared hosting, platform as a service on CloudNX offers a range of advantages. CPUs, RAM and SSD storage resources are scalable and 100% dedicated, with absolutely no contention from other users. This is especially beneficial for demanding, high-traffic applications like ecommerce, and design agencies running several client websites. Multiple projects can be easily deployed via a single control panel, with processing power and memory dynamically allocated to ensure high performance – all without the headaches of server admin and patching. So, with time to market, redundancy and convenience taken care of, and with the benefit of dedicated resource and no ‘noisy neighbours’, users can simply focus on growing their own business.

Gavin Etheridge, Fasthosts Product Owner, understands the huge benefits offered by Root Servers, Managed Stacks and Applications to customers looking for a bespoke cloud hosting solution:

“With the addition of Managed Stacks and Applications to our CloudNX product line, we can now provide customers with a very broad set of solutions for managing their web projects, without the need to sign up to any lengthy contracts,” he confirms.

“The incredibly lightweight setup process means you can spin up a new environment for your preferred CMS in as little as 55 seconds. If our customers anticipate more traffic for promotional offers, testing or events, they can designate resources to individual projects as needed. When you need to adjust the level of resources, just make the changes within the Cloud Panel, and they’ll be executed in less than one minute.”

“Customers using Managed Stacks and Applications can focus 100% on their core business, while Fasthosts takes care of the first layer of infrastructure to ensure they’re up to date and, vitally, secure. And, as this is fully supported in the UK by our team, we’re on hand to help, speeding up the process and giving our customers more time to create the content they want. All our customers need to do is bring the code.”

The next phase of Fasthosts’ move towards containerisation will see the introduction of containers as a service running on Docker-based container technology. Docker is renowned for granting the ability to configure purpose-built software stacks to match highly individual requirements, providing the customer with a resilient, agile platform that increases the availability of their online services helping them to be even more successful on the internet.
