According to ZNet, NodeFirst will provide dedicated servers at its Tier IV Mumbai data center to a range of clients and web hosting providers.
“We are extremely ecstatic to announce the launch of our new venture- NodeFirst,” Munesh Jadoun, CEO, NodeFirst said in a statement. “Data centers made their major appearance in India in mid 1990s, and back then they were looked as mere ‘technological fancies’ rather than an essential business requirement. But times have changed. Even the slightest downtime or performance lag can cause irreparable loss of valuable customers, reputation, and business damage to an organization. This is where we come in the picture. We’ll offer the lowest latency in India that will give our clients relief from server timeouts and let them serve their customers with SLA guaranteeing 99.999 percent uptime. Clients who deploy dedicated servers from us will also get cost benefits on fronts like hardware, IT capital expenditure, and management/administration.”
NodeFirst offers RackNap data center management software to manage clients’ billing and inventory, a software developed by ZNetCorp.
Quadcore, dual quadcore, dual hexcore and dual octacore configuration servers starting at $165 are available from NodeFirst starting January 3, 2013.
Since ZNet has been around since 2002, and is one of the few Tier IV data center operators in India, it is in a good position to see success with its dedicated server offering. There are other instances of web hosts or cloud service providers launching a new division or company to focus on one set of services, or a particular region. Recently, CenturyLink launched a new cloud computing company savvisdirect for businesses to deploy cloud services.
NodeFirst joins ZNetLive, IconCube, TrustP, WHMCSExtras, ThemeChilly, AutoInsta, and RackNap brands under the ZNet umbrella.
