Los Angeles, CA — RackNerd LLC, a dedicated server, complex hosting, cloud, disaster recovery, colocation, and infrastructure services provider today announced the launch of its new product offering: DDoS Protected Virtual Private Servers (VPS). DDoS Protected VPS services, powered by KVM virtualization, will be deployed out of its new Los Angeles DC-05 facility, featuring 60Gbps of DDoS protection included with every plan.

Its on-the-fly engine fine-tunes distributed denial-of-service attacks in real-time to mitigate even the most sophisticated examples — mitigating attack traffic that would otherwise result in downtime.


With security and uptime emphasized, this sophisticated protection service proactively detects and filters complex network security threats. The result: a seamless experience where end-users encounter no downtime or increased latency.

“In recent studies, it has been found that a single DDoS attack costs some businesses as much as $2.5 million in lost revenue. With network related attacks evolving to become a serious concern for businesses around the globe, very few fine-tuned, proactive mitigation solutions existed in the marketplace until now.” discloses Dustin B. Cisneros, CEO of RackNerd LLC.

The destructive impact of DDoS attacks can result in website downtime, degraded server performance, website vulnerability, and most importantly: lost time, productivity, and revenue. An analysis by Kaspersky Lab Research announced that DDoS attacks are continuing to rise globally, costing both financial and reputational damage for many organizations.

“In these times where online presence is more critical than ever before, it is essential for businesses to have a plan in place to mitigate today’s sophisticated network attacks. Our enterprise-grade DDoS mitigation service is designed with the future in mind. DDoS attacks of all shapes, sizes, and types are stopped automatically without any manual intervention from our customers. New attack patterns are learned and systematically filtered.” Cisneros added.

Businesses looking to deploy upon DDoS protected infrastructure can now benefit from RackNerd’s new product offering. To learn more, please visit: https://www.racknerd.com/ddos-protected-vps

Microsoft has announced the preview of a brand-new Azure service called Azure Dedicated Host, that will allow Windows and Linux virtual machines (VMs) to run on single-tenant physical servers. The new service will provide users the full control and visibility over everything that goes on the server without sharing its resources. “With an Azure Dedicated Host, you can control all host-level platform maintenance initiated by Azure (e.g., host OS updates). An Azure Dedicated Host gives you the option to defer host maintenance operations and apply them within a defined maintenance window, 35 days,” explained Ziv Rafalovich, Principal Program Manager, Azure Compute, Microsoft, in a blog post. “During this self-maintenance window, you can apply maintenance to your hosts at your convenience, thus gaining full control over the sequence and velocity of the maintenance process.” Azure Dedicated Host enables enterprises to place Azure VMs on a specific and dedicated physical server.
