LunarWeb has selected Sunlight’s HCI (hyperconverged infrastructure) stack for its web hosting infrastructure to enable the highest performance from the cloud to the edge. With Sunlight, LunarWeb is also able to achieve simpler management as well as licensing cost efficiencies.
LunarWeb is a U.S. web hosting provider delivering managed services and shared hosting solutions to keep websites globally available around the clock, seven days a week. LunarWeb’s shared hosting offerings are aimed at individuals and small businesses.
“Not only did Sunlight go above and beyond when we needed to migrate all of our customers to Sunlight running on existing hardware at short notice, they were open and transparent with us about any hiccups along the way. Let’s just say, we didn’t get this level of service with our previous HCI supplier,” said Tim Martoccio, Founder and CEO of LunarWeb. “The Sunlight Infrastructure Manager is a game changer. Not only have we saved time and money managing our own infrastructure. Our clients find their own environments easy to use as well.”
Sunlight’s HCI stack would make applications like AI, Big Data, Analytics, and Rendering significantly quicker than legacy virtualization. It would be ideal for the edge due of its small footprint. Sunlight claims to help enterprises and managed service providers (MSPs) lower the cost of delivering high-performance IT by 70 percent.
“It’s not every day that a client you’re working with on a pilot is forced to migrate all of their clients at short notice,” said Julian Chesterfield, Founder and CEO of Sunlight. “They have a lot of high-profile clients, so we needed to minimize disruption for them. We worked closely with Tim and the LunarWeb team throughout the process to make the migration as seamless as possible. I’m delighted with the results – a better experience for less – win / win.”
