So we’ve been talking about stuff on the company blog, with friends, with customers etc for months. Today we’re doing a soft, low key, launch. It’s a new range of VPS plans based on Parallels Virtuozzo. It’s tacked onto our brand new billing and provisioning systems. It’s all part of the project we’ve been working on behind the scenes to automate more and more and also provide the next generation in hosting to our existing customer base and to the rest of Europe.
So here it is http://www.blacknightvps.com our new virtualisation product launch. It’s a cost effective, scalable, high performance platform that allows us to deliver services on Linux and Windows x64 Virtual Environments.
Some of the cool features include:
- Live migration
- CentOS 5.x and Windows 2003 x64 VPS
- Instant activation
- Virtuozzo Power Panel
- Advanced blacknight PEM billing control panel
- Ability to migrate a VPS to a dedicated server
- Ability to migrate a dedicated server to a VPS
And I guess lots more. We’ve thrown quite a bit of hardware at this new system and I’ve personally spent 100s of hours testing, configuring, breaking and fixing it over the past few months.
Any feedback, error reports etc are welcome.
