VPS.net, a cloud hosting company with offices in the UK and Unites States, has launched a new Power Pack feature for its cloud servers, which will streamline and simplify the process of auto-scaling. The new feature has the potential to double the power of a cloud server, automatically and on demand.
Designed to be there when a customer needs it, Power Pack features a set of additional server resources which will snap into action before the cloud servers reach their capacity. For example, a server with two vCPUs and 2GB RAM, can scale to four vCPUs and 4GB RAM during busy periods – without anyone having to lift a finger.
In most locations, Power Pack adds unlimited bandwidth too so customers don’t need to worry about exceeding data limits. “Power Pack makes it easy for customers to benefit from the power of cloud,” said Tony Reeve, Director of Cloud Marketing. “It takes the worry out of under-specifying a server, because, when server loads rise, Power Pack provides plenty of extra power to meet demand.”
VPS.NET’s Power Pack feature comes with server monitoring, which gives customers email or text alerts and graphical reporting. “By combining real time alerts and server monitoring with auto-scaling, we’ve arrived at a solution that enables customers to deploy and forget,” said Tony Reeve. “Power Pack will deliver extra resources on demand and server monitoring will alert customers to changes in server load. So there is no longer a need for customers to constantly check server performance.”
The new Power Pack feature can be purchased at the server build stage, or as an add-on for existing servers, in the click of a button.
Launched in 2009 as part of the UK2Group, VPS.NET provides cloud hosting to more than 10,000 clients, in more than 180 different countries.
