Rackspace Founder Launches New Company Offering Personal Dedicated Servers

00:00:00 - 14 January 2003

SAN ANTONIO, Jan 14, 2003 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- ServerBeach, a discount dedicated hosting company, is a new alternative for technology hobbyists seeking the flexibility and reliability of dedicated servers without the high cost.

Starting at $99, ServerBeach offers its PersonalServer(tm) built on quality hardware and a reliable network. The company was launched today by Rackspace Managed Hosting founder, Richard Yoo, who had a vision of a basic, yet powerful server offering at an unbeatable price.

"As founder of Rackspace, I've helped thousands of companies around the world deploy mission-critical applications based on robust infrastructure, custom server architecture and fully managed services. Over the past few years, I've been approached by many colleagues looking for a credible and low-priced dedicated server option for the active technology enthusiast, just like me," said Richard Yoo, Big Kahuna, ServerBeach. "Without a viable option in the marketplace, I set out to create a new dedicated server company, offering personal servers at a low price point. ServerBeach PersonalServers will enable customers to manage their very own server for any number of uses; including Web host reselling, photo galleries, development projects, gaming, Web logging, email, file servers, backup and monitoring or just tinkering."

For only $99, ServerBeach offers its PersonalServer running on Red Hat(R) Linux(R) with 400GB bandwidth, full root access and a 24-hour hardware replacement guarantee. And, for a limited time, ServerBeach is offering a Windows(R) 2000 Server, complete with Ensim(R) for the same price.

ServerBeach delivers more than has ever been offered in the $99 price range, with a profitable business model -- the key to long-term company stability. Unlike other hosters offering low price points, ServerBeach is truly different. This is why:

-- Reliable Network with Unlimited Bandwidth -
ServerBeach is built on a carrier-grade network utilizing only Tier 1 bandwidth providers. The company backs its network with a 99.9 percent guarantee and service level agreement. Additionally, ServerBeach offers 400 GB of bandwidth to its customers, burstable
to unlimited usage when needed.

-- Support you can count on - ServerBeach delivers top-notch customer support and fast response times 24/7 through its online ticketing system. To keep costs low, ServerBeach customer support is not included in the monthly server fee (after initial set
up assistance) and is available on a pay-as-you-go basis. Additionally, ServerBeach offers a 24-hour hardware replacement guarantee, at no extra cost to the customer.

-- Red Hat Linux and Windows 2000 Servers - In addition to low-price Linux servers, ServerBeach is the very first company to offer discount Windows servers to the technology hobbyist. Traditionally, the discount dedicated server has been home only to the Linux user. Now, with ServerBeach, Windows developers have a low cost option for personal use.

-- Company Stability and Credibility - Automation is the key to ServerBeach's long-term business model. The company's proprietary engine is designed to keep human hands off the machines, so errors and personnel costs are low, while scaling is limitless. And, ServerBeach is funded by Rackspace, the world's leading managed
hosting company. This affiliation provides ServerBeach with stability and guidance, and also opens doors to great partnerships with companies like Microsoft, Plesk and Ensim.

" Although discount dedicated hosting options have been available for some time, they are often based on shoddy networks and provide poor control tools," added Yoo. "ServerBeach is built on a Cisco(R) powered network and multiple Tier 1 bandwidth providers guarded by premium network security. Where else can you get discount servers done right for only $99 per month?"
