Uses OnApp cloud servers, smart servers and integrated storage to improve resilience

has announced that VooServers [http://www.vooservers.com ] has launched a new range of
public, private and hybrid cloud services to help enterprise customers migrate dedicated
server workloads to the cloud, using the OnApp platform. With OnApp, VooServers can help
enterprise clients improve resilience, and reduce server and storage costs, by migrating
applications from traditional dedicated servers to fully-automated OnApp cloud servers,
smart servers and bare metal servers. VooServers is also using OnApp’s federated Content
Delivery Network (CDN) to extend its clients’ applications to more than 170 locations on

VooServers chose OnApp for its ability to automate hosting for a wide range of
cloud-based and dedicated server-based applications through one control panel. VooServers
has already used OnApp to migrate applications for FTSE 100 and other clients, including
Microsoft Exchange, CCTV systems, e-commerce and game servers, from traditional dedicated
servers to a mix of OnApp cloud servers, smart servers and bare metal servers hosted at
VooServers datacenters in the UK, U.S. and Europe.

“A lot of customers come to VooServers to migrate away from traditional dedicated
servers, and get the benefits of faster provisioning, automatic scaling and redundancy
from virtualization,” said Matt Parkinson, VooServers’ founder and technical director.
“The real power of OnApp is that it handles fully virtual, fully dedicated and hybrid
cloud, and dedicated servers in one platform, and includes its own storage system, as well
as a global CDN. OnApp gives us the tools we need to design and deploy hosting services to
suit each customer workload, and bring serious cost savings and improvements in
application flexibility, resilience and performance to our clients.”

VooServers makes extensive use of OnApp Smart Servers, which combine the performance
of a dedicated server with automated provisioning, scaling and failover of a cloud server.
They enable VooServers’ clients to deploy resource-intensive applications with full
redundancy, without the cost of running multiple redundant dedicated servers. VooServers
also offers fully dedicated and fully virtual servers running on OnApp, so its clients can
host resource-intensive applications with just the right mix of redundancy and

“One of the biggest opportunities for service providers is unifying cloud and
dedicated infrastructure, and managing them together,” said OnApp’s Chief Commercial
Officer, Kosten Metreweli. “Cloud might get most of the headlines, but 90% of all servers
out there are still dedicated to a single workload. With OnApp you can manage dedicated,
virtual-dedicated and fully virtual cloud resources under a single ‘pane of glass’, and
VooServers is showing just how valuable that is for enterprises running apps like
Exchange. They can keep the performance and security benefits of running in a
single-tenant environment, get the automatic provisioning, scaling and failover of the
cloud, and reduce hardware, storage, management and power costs at the same time.”

VooServers also makes extensive use of OnApp’s integrated storage system. With OnApp,
VooServers can create high performance distributed storage using SSD drives in the servers
hosting its clients’ applications. This removes the need for proprietary SAN arrays and
direct attached storage for dedicated servers, greatly reducing cost while improving
resilience and storage scalability.

OnApp’s federated CDN also enables VooServers to accelerate web performance and web
application delivery for its clients. Using the OnApp CDN marketplace, VooServers can give
its clients access to any of the 170+ locations in OnApp’s CDN federation, across 113
cities in 43 countries. VooServers plans to create three of its own CDN Points of Presence
(PoPs) in Kent, UK, Frankfurt, Germany and New York in the U.S., and sell capacity at
these locations to other federation members through the OnApp CDN marketplace.
