Host NewsLouisville, KY – Hosting.com, the first name in global hosting solutions and services, today announced the general availability of CloudNine — a hosted cloud computing environment that provides intuitive, scalable business solutions at Gartner’s 2008 Data Center Conference. CloudNine production solutions are immediately available for beta users, clients and prospects. Hosting.com is continuing to allow companies to participate in the ongoing CloudNine Beta at no charge for 90 days.

This fall has included a series of events leading to the announcement on CloudNine’s general availability. In September 2008, Hosting.com showcased CloudNine at VMware’s VMworld 2008. Today, Jonathan Erwin, Hosting.com EVP CloudNine Sales and Marketing co-presented at the Gartner Data Center Conference with Paul Hettesheimer of Radware (RDWR:6.66, -0.09, -1.3%) , on “Business-Smart Optimization for Virtualized and Cloud Computing Environments.”

“After months of collecting and acting upon client feedback, developing an intuitive and interactive client portal, and working with world-class manufacturers to guarantee the security, redundancy and availability of our cloud computing solution we are pleased that we have beta users waiting to sign the paperwork to purchase the solution today,” noted Erwin.

The city of Louisville has worked closely with CapitalSouth over the past two years to encourage local mezzanine investments in Louisville-based companies. Louisville, KY Mayor Jerry Abramson stated, “We are very pleased that our 2-year effort to attract a top mezzanine debt firm to Louisville played a role in making this exciting expansion by Hosting.com possible.”

CloudNine solutions will start at $75 per month and will scale based on business need and demand. Key components of CloudNine include: root access to private and secure virtual servers, self-serve web-based Customer Portal, hosting in our fully redundant and geographically-dispersed data centers, and guaranteed 100% uptime and 24/7 support. Hosting.com has provided companies with single-tenant cloud computing environments since early 2007.

CloudNine is built on the most complete standards-based architecture utilizing world-class technologies from providers such as VMware, Radware, HP, Fortinet, Cisco, IBM and others guaranteeing reliability and security. 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.

Hosting.com cites the recent downturn in the economy as a reason to continue expansion and growth into new markets at this time. “We are receiving more calls from enterprises looking to save capital and improve their operational efficiencies by avoiding data center builds and turning to experienced providers such as Hosting.com for increased services,” commented Jonathan Erwin, VP of Sales and Marketing at Hosting.com.

Many enterprise companies and those in the SMB space are searching for opportunities to partially move their hosted infrastructure into a cloud-platform while others are looking to completely move to a cloud computing infrastructure to capitalize on the advantages and reduced costs cloud computing provides. Hosting.com developed CloudNine with these requirements in mind and is therefore able to offer an innovate solution that provides flexibility and scalability in a controlled and secure environment.

Companies that sign up for the ongoing Beta will receive a production-ready virtual machine in CloudNine that is scalable, flexible and efficient. The CloudNine Beta is free for 90 days, and can seamlessly transition into larger, complex hosted solutions during or after the Beta. Register for the CloudNine Beta at www.hosting.com/cloud.
