Webhosting UK (or WHUK for short) has announced some serious performance upgrades to their line of VMware based cloud hosting plans. The new plans sport new processor performance with double the amount of RAM and storage space than the previous-generation VMware cloud hosting plans offered, at the exact same great low price. So that means that now, a simple £33 a month plan includes dual 2.2 GHz vCPUs, 2 GB RAM and 60 GB storage, along with 5,000 GB of monthly bandwidth – 5x more than previously offered. Customers that need more resources for more demanding requirements can customise their VMware Cloud order with up to 12 x 2.2 Ghz vCPUs, up to 64 GB RAM and 1 TB SAS storage for ultimate performance and speed.
Robert King, Managing Director, Webhosting UK said, “VMware Cloud is our enterprise-class hosting environment and is the best choice for businesses that need the ultimate in reliability and redundancy for uptime-critical websites. Now with over double the vCPU performance, there has never been a better time to switch. With prices starting from just £33 a month with amazing entry-level performance, VMware Cloud is now in the reach of those on even the tightest of budgets.”
Webhosting UK’s VMware Cloud infrastructure is custom designed by expert in-house network engineers. “Redundancy and performance are incredibly important factors in a platform designed for business. Our cloud environment has been meticulously designed by our experienced team of engineers in order not only to provide the best security and redundancy, but also to deliver fine-tuned performance for the most demanding requirements,” King said.
Hosted in a state-of-the-art data centre in Reading, Webhosting UK’s VMware Cloud hosting plans consist of a cluster of servers connected to a remote storage device with data striped down multiple devices, switches and uplinks providing multiple levels of redundancy. Designed with this in mind, the company’s infrastructure is capable of handling a 40% loss of the hardware nodes while continuing to operate efficiently.
