Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


"Sphera Corporation, the only provider of a software platform for automating global hosting operations, and Dialtone Internet, a leading provider of Linux dedicated hosting and colocation solutions, today announced AutoHost, a dedicated Linux server line designed for premium Web hosting. Available from Dialtone Internet, AutoHost is enabled by Sphera's HostingDirector 3.0, a software platform that simplifies and automates Web hosting business operations for mission-critical environments. HostingDirector will enable Dialtone to extend the value of managed services throughout the hosting provider and ISP supply chain."

"HostingDirector is by far the best 'out-of-the-box' solution for high-end hosting," says Al Albarracin, CEO of Dialtone Internet. "It is the only product we found that allows our customers to streamline management tasks without any specialized equipment or a steep learning curve. HostingDirector dramatically enhances Web hosts' ability to provision proven, optimized software on demand to their end-users, while controlling costs. Sphera can have a significant, positive impact on the hosting providers' bottom line."

"Dialtone Internet, one of the fastest growing dedicated hosting providers worldwide, was looking for a way to empower its Web hosting customers to automate complex and labor intensive management tasks such as adding sites and applications, establishing Web infrastructures, and setting up provision accounts. Sphera's software solution simplifies time consuming IT operations, reducing administration costs. HostingDirector also enables Web hosts to transform and differentiate their businesses with advanced services, monitoring and reporting on usage activity to ensure security, availability, and reliability. By offering dedicated server performance on a shared server, expediting complex processes, and reducing time-to-market for new applications, Sphera's scalable, open solution delivers higher, measurable value to both the hosting provider and the end-user."
