Ensim’s Newest Software Solution Expands the Market for Dedicated Servers

00:00:00 - 22 May 2003

SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 21, 2003 - Ensim™ Corporation, the global leader in hosting automation software, today announced Ensim WEBppliance™ Basic for Linux, the first commercial-grade control panel software for webmasters managing their own dedicated Web server. Ensim WEBppliance Basic minimizes the expertise required to manage a dedicated server, enabling shared hosting customers to easily move to a dedicated server environment. This newest addition to the Ensim WEBppliance family is expected to rapidly expand the market for dedicated servers, with its ease of use for end-users and bundling opportunities for service providers.

"Webmasters would like to migrate to dedicated servers to improve performance, security, and reliability, but lack the expertise required to administer a Linux-based server," said Steve Dauber, vice president of marketing for Ensim Corporation. "Existing control panels have not addressed this issue, as they primarily target hosting resellers who require sophisticated but complex functionality. With Ensim WEBppliance Basic, we are providing a way for webmasters to manage one or more Web sites without all the complicated administrative and technical issues."

Because Ensim WEBppliance Basic is so easy-to-use, service providers can offer dedicated servers to a broader set of customers. In addition, WEBppliance Basic can be added to their product solutions without incremental burdens to the technical support staff, as there is no additional product for them to learn.

"Ensim WEBppliance Basic meets the demands of the dedicated server customer in technology, time and resources, while benefiting the provider with a low-cost, entry-level software suite" said Len Geiger, President of WebserverGIANT. "WEBppliance Basic is very easy-to-use, satisfying all the requirements webmasters need without the complicated overhead."
