Ensim Launches Standalone Virtual Private Server Solution; Industry Leading Server Virtualization Is Now Available At A Low Entry Price

00:00:00 - 29 January 2003

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan 29, 2003 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Ensim Corporation, the leading provider of software to the hosting industry, today announced Ensim(R) Virtual Private Servers (VPS) as a standalone offering. Now service providers can purchase the Ensim VPS solution at a low entry price, separate from the Ensim ServerXchange(R) software distribution and server management capabilities and Ensim WEBppliance. By offering Ensim VPS as a standalone solution with a low entry price, Ensim has dramatically reduced the upfront investment and business risk for service providers to begin offering virtual private servers to their customers.

Top-tier service providers around the globe today use Ensim VPS -- the industry's most stable and proven solution -- as a fundamentally more efficient way to sell their computing resources. By offering flexible dedicated plans with computing resources that can be purchased on demand, service providers not only get broader market reach, but also greater up-sell opportunities. At the same time, they can lower their capital investment and capture significant server provisioning efficiencies.

Ensim ServerXchange's server management capabilities (Ensim Server Manager) and Ensim WEBppliance(TM) can be purchased independently. Ensim Server Manager streamlines and automates software distribution and server monitoring for both Linux and Windows. Ensim WEBppliance, the industry's leading control panel software, lets server administrators, resellers, site administrators and site users centrally control and automate their most common hosting tasks.

Ensim VPS -- The Web hosting industry standard

"Every service provider should consider having virtual private server plans as part of their Web hosting offerings," says Joshua Beil, Vice President at Tier 1 Research. "Providing a range of Web hosting plans with computing resources that can be scaled on demand is key to growing revenues and profits."

"The world's leading service providers have adopted Ensim VPS technology as their standard," said Steven Dauber, Vice President of Marketing at Ensim. "This new offering enables more mid-market service providers to enjoy the benefits of our industry leading VPS technology."

The Ensim VPS solution virtualizes a server's native OS so it can be partitioned into isolated computing environments which operate independently of each other, just like a dedicated server. To the operating system, an Ensim VPS appears to be an application, and to applications, it's indistinguishable from the native operating system. As a result, an Ensim VPS appears and operates as a physical server to hosting customers. Ensim VPS enables service providers to:

-- Aggressively increase revenues by expanding services to attract and up sell customers -- Offer the most comprehensive and secure virtual server environment with the highest level of performance, functional, fault and address isolation -- Significantly reduce financial risk with a lower capital investment -- Reduce operations costs with centralized and automated administration -- Lower support costs by minimizing server downtime for planned maintenance or unforeseen issues

Availability and Pricing

There is no upfront software license fee for Ensim VPS. Service providers pay for hardware, implementation fees and training to get started. And they pay a monthly fee for each Ensim VPS they sell. The offering is available immediately.
