(Web Hosting News) Louisville, Kentucky – Hosting.com, the first name in global hosting solutions and services, today announced its public release of CloudNine – a cloud computing environment that provides intuitive, scalable business solutions. Showcased at VMware’s (NYSE: VMW) VMWorld 2008, Hosting.com’s CloudNine provides immediate cloud computing for businesses of all sizes with high availability, dynamic scalability, and reduced compute costs.

Hosting.com released a private CloudNine beta to select businesses and organizations earlier this year. Hosting.com’s general release beta is available now through November 30, 2008. Organizations that sign up for the beta will receive a production-ready virtual machine in CloudNine that is scalable, flexible and efficient. The beta machines will be free for 90 days, and can seamlessly transition into larger, complex hosted solutions during or after the beta.

Many enterprise companies and those in the SMB space are searching for opportunities to partially move their hosted infrastructure into a cloud-platform and others are looking to completely move to a cloud computing infrastructure to capitalize on the advantages cloud computing provides. Through its involvement in the new VMware vCloud initiative, Hosting.com is working with VMware and other leading technology providers to create standard APIs and services to allow organizations of all sizes to seamlessly extend their traditional IT infrastructures into the cloud.

Hosting.com also offers private cloud solutions for clients that require a dedicated, single-tenant environment. “Over the past 12 months, Hosting.com has successfully designed and deployed custom Cloud environments that include ESX Clusters with tailored processing, memory and redundant storage for clients seeking greater compute efficiencies,” noted Jonathan Erwin, EVP CloudNine Sales and Marketing. He continued, “Client satisfaction and performance on these highly available solutions prompted the acceleration of CloudNine’s creation.”

CloudNine runs on a standards-based architecture utilizing world-class technologies from providers such as VMware, Radware (NYSE: RDWR), HP, Fortinet, Cisco and others. Hosting.com’s internal developers and solution architects worked closely with these manufacturers and others to stretch the boundaries of virtualization and provide a client-centric, easy-to-use cloud computing platform.

“It is evident that Hosting.com had the end-user in mind when architecting CloudNine. CloudNine provides high availability, scalability, and automation in an optimized virtual environment,” stated Ilan Kinreich, COO Radware. He continued “Radware’s newly released Virtual Director will further optimize and automate CloudNine while ensuring Hosting.com continues to provide the industry’s best SLAs and Quality of Experience (QoE) to its clients.”
