Singaporean web hosting provider 8 To Infinity announced on Thursday it has launched virtualized hosting services for its worldwide customers of web hosting, colocation, dedicated servers, and managed services.
The move comes a few months after XBT Holding acquired 8 to Infinity.
8 to Infinity says that customers of its virtual servers will see faster speeds, greater reliability, more flexibility, and higher security.
“Server virtualization allows us to achieve greater throughput and configuration flexibility, and that means faster speeds and higher reliability for our customers,” said Konstantin Bezruchenko, chief technical officer at 8 To Infinity’s parent company XBT Holding. “This project extends the major upgrade to our network completed in November 2012, and it reflects our continued investment in offering the highest-performance hosting environment in Asia.”
Virtual servers can be more quickly provisioned and optimized than individual physical servers, which results in faster and more flexible hardware deployment and replacement.
8 To Infinity’s virtualized hosting services provides faster and more flexible back up. The company uses Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012.
The virtualized hosting services have begun rolling out this month and will be completed in March.
The launch of the virtualized hosting services follows 8 to Infinity’s recent upgrade to its infrastructure in late November, which included high-performance connectivity to China and increased capacity to the Equinix data center.
8 To Infinity provides a range of hosting solutions, including dedicated hosting, colocation, data hosting and CDN services.
