ServePath Intros Hosting Platform

SAN FRANCISCO -- ServePath, a leading dedicated server provider and hosting specialist, today announced their Grid Series Server Hosting platform that uses grid-based computing for highly redundant Internet hosting. The Grid Series hosting package is the first practical hosted virtualization platform for today’s businesses that need a powerful, customizable Internet hosting solution that not only incorporates load balancing as part of a multi-processor solution but also has guaranteed processing and memory.

With the exploding user adoption of interactive media like video, podcasts, and social networking sites, more web sites have a need for a robust infrastructure that can handle heavy traffic spikes. The ServePath Grid Series servers provide businesses access to infrastructure as they need it within a fully-managed environment. With rapid server deployments, instant failover, server snapshots with restore, SAN storage, and the ability to quickly scale RAM and storage allotments on demand, companies can scale vertically and horizontally without having to make otherwise hefty capital investments in rapidly depreciating hardware. Instead, businesses can rely on the power of SAN-supported Grid Series servers for their production environments.

Real Servers, Real Grid Computing, Real Time

The virtualization capabilities of ServePath Grid Series servers guarantee customers processor, memory, and storage levels. Unlike other virtualization solutions, the ServePath Grid Series interconnected grid of servers allows companies to benefit from their own dedicated, virtualized CPU and memory. In addition, load balancing software automatically manages and adapts to spikes in service.

“Virtualization has been around for more than 20 years,” said John Keagy, president at ServePath. “Large organizations have always understood the consolidation and productivity value that virtualization offers as a computing platform. ServePath is now bringing that same value to the first practical hosting solution, allowing small and mid-sized customers who may not have a dedicated IT staff – as well as large enterprises that would like to use a separate environment for testing – the ability to better leverage efficiencies and scale on-demand.”
