Zulahoo, an Internet community commerce portal, has chosen ViaWest to provide on-demand cloud computing services.
After considering a number of vendors, Zulahoo chose ViaWest’s KINECTed Cloud platform, and has moved from a physical infrastructure to a virtual environment, reducing its hosting costs. ViaWest says its monitoring platform enables Zulahoo to manage growth by tracking usability and determining when more on-demand resources should be added.
Jon Prichard, Zulahoo CEO, says, “As we prepare to grow our company, the ability to scale on demand was a top concern in selecting a hosting solution. ViaWest not only provides the training and toolsets to manage growth, but its superior level of customer support is at the foundation of its success. There are many options for cloud solutions in the marketplace but the level of interaction and support ViaWest provides ensures our needs are always top of mind.”
ViaWest says its KINECTed Cloud offers a dynamic pool of computing, storage and networking resources without ongoing personnel or capital expenses. It provides two platforms, a Xen-based hypervisor cloud or VMware-based platform.
