Media Temple, a Los Angeles-based company providing web hosting and cloud hosting solutions, has added a new tier to their Grid – the company’s managed shared web hosting solution. The new plan, Grid Elite, would meet the web hosting needs of high-traffic, database-intensive site and app owners and make it simple for them to manage their growth.
Grid Elite would offer all the scalability and benefits of a managed shared web platform, as well as:
- Performance and reliability – Grid Elite uniquely offers dedicated resources for users’ databases, says Media Temple, ensuring that said databases never compete for RAM and storage, and removing the risk of traffic bottlenecks. Grid Elite’s dedicated database container would also provide users with enhanced customization options;
- Speed and security – Grid Elite features web application firewall (WAF), malware monitoring and removal for up to five sites, and global Content Delivery Network (CDN);
“With Grid Elite, we’ve merged the best of both worlds, bringing together the simplicity of shared hosting with the power of dedicated resources,” said Brendan Fortune, Senior Director of Product at Media Temple. “Customers who prefer not to take on the additional responsibility of a VPS for their business-critical sites no longer have to. Especially for sites involving e-commerce or membership subscriptions, having a dedicated MySQL database container to themselves really makes Grid Elite one of the industry’s most powerful managed shared hosting offerings.”
With 230 dedicated, U.S.-based employees, Media Temple serves over 125,000 people and businesses in 100 countries.
