Virtual Server Provider dinCloud Announces R&D Investments for 2014

virtual-serversdinCloud, a channel focused cloud hosting provider offering hosted virtual desktops and virtual servers, is expanding on its core brand identity. dinCloud will make more significant investments in R&D, including the addition of several new engineers to its roster in 2014. The revamped strategy will bring new product offerings aimed at VARs and managed hosting providers.

The company, headquartered in Gardena, CA, is currently offering its channel base hosted virtual desktops, virtual servers, storage & backup, networking and several applications in the cloud. With a focus on R&D over the next several months, dinCloud plans to launch several new products around webHVD/HTML5 virtual desktops, cloud storage, and public/private connectivity with MPLS/VPN networks.

Managed hosting providers

“The robust infrastructure we built years ago to provide a true Windows desktop replacement in the cloud included things like 40 gigabit networking and SSD storage, but now moves beyond that,” said Mike Chase, EVP & CTO, dinCloud. “Our newest virtual desktop, webHVD, will be a true plug and play, powered by HTML5 in Google’s Chrome browser as a web application extension – no client software to worry about on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, or Chromebook endpoints. As we move into 2014, we’ll continue to focus on our user experiences across all these new products to ensure we continue delivering a heavenly experience in the cloud.”

With its reseller hosting solutions, dinCloud is focused on VARs and managed hosting providers. Each customer’s dedicated private virtual data center would provide hosted virtual desktops, hosted virtual servers, and cloud storage services, which are controlled by the customer through dinCloud’s dinManage web-based management tool.
