1&1 Internet Inc., a subsidiary of United Internet, a public company with a market cap of more than $8 billion, has announced the launch of its new 1&1 Cloud Server line in the United States. Deployed within 55 seconds of configuration, professional cloud server users can take control of the hardware and software infrastructure in real time.
The “intuitive and user-friendly” dashboard enables users to activate and manage their cloud servers, storage systems and connectivity solutions such as firewalls, load balancers and backup.
As projects evolve and resource demands change, adjustments to the configuration can be made with just one click. 1&1 Cloud Server also incorporates the latest technologies, like SSD storage, by default through a Storage Area Network (SAN) “guaranteeing greater reliability and better performance for projects and hosted data.”
Also available, application templates for WordPress, Drupal and Magento can be preinstalled to simplify and accelerate the launch of new hosting projects.
“Many small- and medium-sized businesses consider Cloud solutions but, until now, a cloud service was not available that met their expectations for security, flexibility and usability,” said Robert Hoffmann, CEO 1&1 Internet Inc. “Addressing the needs of SMBs, 1&1’s Cloud Server is an easy and simple Cloud solution with outstanding performance. Besides our extensive feature set, we also deliver a very affordable entry price.”
