Web Hosting NewsSAN FRANCISCO – Connectria Hosting, a global complex and managed hosting provider, announced today that it has launched a Business Only Cloud, a cloud solution for select corporate members.

The Business Only Cloud offers companies a secure alternative to mass market clouds, which allow anyone with a valid credit card to gain entry. And unlike other “enterprise clouds” that claim to be more suitable for enterprises yet place no restrictions on who gains entry, Connectria’s Business Only Cloud is more secure by virtue of who’s in it…as well as who’s not in it. Connectria’s Business Only Cloud does not admit consumers or hobbyists, and attempts to eliminate presence of activities that may jeopardize the integrity of the Business Only Cloud, such as spamming, phishing and spoofing.

“While some cloud providers claim to offer security layers to guard against malicious attacks and vulnerabilities, Connectria has taken cloud security a step further,” said Rich Waidmann, Connectria President and CEO. “By implementing a screening process with very specific criteria, only established and ‘legitimate’ businesses get in, making Connectria’s Business Only Cloud a more viable and secure option for companies. We carefully scrutinize and reject admission of suspect applicants who may taint our cloud.”

According to Scott Azzolina, Connectria’s Vice President of Marketing, “We created a Business Only Cloud by listening to what our customers were telling us. They want cloud solutions with greater security and controls, predictable monthly costs that align with their company budgets, and the ability to scale according to need. Our Business Only Cloud does that.”

Connectria’s Business Only Cloud offers both Public and Private Cloud options. It also provides standard configurations (e.g. Dell PowerEdge Servers, EqualLogic SANs, VMware vSphere) and custom alternatives as well.

Companies interested in joining the Business Only Cloud must submit an application and undergo a screening process to ensure they meet the requirements of admission. To learn more about the Business Only Cloud or to submit an application, please visit us at:
