Hosting services provider A2 Hosting from Ann Arbor, Michigan, has transformed and optimized its Virtual Private Server (VPS hosting) services by migrating and standardizing on Virtuozzo’s flagship virtualization product, Virtuozzo Hybrid Server.
Virtuozzo’s Hybrid Server offering is a virtualization solution that includes container virtualization, KVM-based virtual machines, software-defined storage, along with enterprise features and production support. It runs on top of Virtuozzo Linux, an RHEL-based Linux distribution. Virtuozzo Hybrid Server powers the world’s leading hosting service providers with a toolset that is used to build targeted, competitive services “at a low total cost of ownership.”
A2 Hosting optimized its Managed and Unmanaged VPS hosting services by migrating and standardizing on Virtuozzo Hybrid Server. It would enable A2 Hosting to meet the increase in demand from its highest growth segment, SMBs, with lightning-fast, efficient and flexible solutions. Virtuozzo Hybrid Server would enable improved features, density optimization, and performance improvement while simplifying the underlying technology’s management.
“We look at the performance of each of our product lines on a regular basis to make sure we are offering our customer’s the best and fastest performance we possibly can. Selecting Virtuozzo for our next generation VPS hosting platform was an easy choice,” said Bryan Muthig, CEO of A2 Hosting. “Using Virtuozzo’s Hybrid Server allows us to tap into Virtuozzo’s containers for OS efficiency and storage to achieve upwards of a 50 percent increase in performance from the same hardware when compared to other solutions we evaluated. As a result, we’ve seen increased efficiencies for both infrastructure and software dependencies, which has ultimately led to higher performance for our customers and greater ROI for us.”
