Web hosting provider Ubiquity Servers has announced the release of its brand new SSD cloud platform. The new platform will use the Intel 520 series, along with OnApp to offer an enhanced IO performance for its customers.
Customers can take advantage of the new cloud platform right now, as long as they live in New York City. The company has pledged to roll out the platform for its other centres in Chicago, Los Angeles, and Amsterdam in the coming months.
The company released a statement on their website, “By utilizing a distributed file system instead of expensive SAN software commonly used by other cloud providers, we are able to massively cut costs down without sacrificing performance or reliability.”
The new distributed storage system has a total of 20 Gbps and has full redundancy. This will come as welcome news for business owners as this system is renowned for its ability to keep data safe and secure.
The director of digital marketing, Daniel Haim, stated in the release that he expressed his, and the company’s, excitement at this latest step into the cloud market. He also said, “Up until now the hardware and software technology behind the scenes didn’t let us create a product that we felt offered value for our customers. We’re all very excited to put those days behind us.”
Cloud plans start at a low price of $6 a month with 1GB of RAM, 1 vCPU, and 10 GB of SSD space. The press release also mentioned the upcoming release of hourly rates for people that go beyond their plan limits.
Ubiquity also plans to boost its current portfolio of products with a new API. On this subject, they mentioned how they were in the final development phases. Its API would work alongside its cloud products.
