OnApp launches Version 2.0 of groundbreaking cloud hosting software

London, 19th July 2010: After two years of private testing, OnApp v 2.0 has been launched to respond to market demands for a cloud engine for hosting providers. OnApp v 2.0 provides hosting companies with a cloud management system designed to increase revenues, cut costs and increase stability. OnApp has been successfully implemented by a handful of private companies who used it to deploy over 30,000 VPS servers worldwide, attesting to its flexibility, reliability and adoption in the marketplace.

“OnApp v 2.0 is the kind of solution that enables hosting companies to scale more efficiently and move from dedicated servers to clouds, and jump on board before the market leaves them behind. OnApp was a pioneer cloud engine that is now thoroughly market proven and is the most customizable cloud software that service providers can own and grow with. It will help hosting companies build their brands and reputations in the marketplace,” says Carlos Rego, MD of OnApp.

Initially, v 1.x of the OnApp cloud engine software was designed by a team with deep hosting experience to meet the specific market requirements of VPS.NET; the ability to deploy custom virtual machines in a matter of minutes, set up public or private clouds (with no overhead) and manage all server resources on a virtual platform. Additionally, support for multiple operating systems is handled with ease with OnApp’s technology, which enables simultaneous hosting of servers with various operating systems. It runs on commodity hardware, such as Dell or SuperMicro and it can adopt any SAN/Storage solution available.

“The demand for cloud hosting was beyond our expectations; more than 10,000 servers went live within seven months of entering the market, and have now deployed almost three times as much on our OnApp powered platform, making it the fastest growing entity within the UK2 Group, outselling dedicated servers 10:1” says Nick Nelson, MD of VPS.net.

Merrill Lynch estimates the cloud computing market will reach $160 billion by 2011,OnApp reduces the barriers to entry for hosting providers to tap into this lucrative and rapidly growing market.

OnApp is a fully customizable cloud engine, with built in failover and resource management, utility and resource based billing, support for both Windows and Linux VMs and can be deployed in less than one day.

Currently OnApp is offering a promotion that gives clients the first year for free and a subsequent monthly licensing fee of $10 per physical CPU core that includes free setup, integration and 24/7 phone support.
