Blacknight Selects Parallels Linux Shared Hosting NG For High Density Hosting
02:24:07 - 28 October 2014

New solution scales up to 15,000 websites per server while supporting multiple versions of PHP

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Parallels, the platform provider for cloud service delivery and Blacknight Solutions, Ireland’s largest web hosting and domain registrar, announced the expansion of Blacknight’s Parallels Automation platform with the Linux Shared Hosting Next Generation module (Shared Hosting NG). Blacknight is using Shared Hosting NG to improve the quality and security of its shared hosting services through higher performance and site isolation, which protects against website disruption. Moreover, the module delivers a significant increase in revenue per square meter of data center space by enabling high density hosting of up to 15,000 websites per server.

The Shared Hosting NG module gives Blacknight the flexibility to support multiple versions of the PHP web development scripting language. This is crucial for the company in solving one of its customers’ key pain points – the fact that many modern website Content Management Systems require regular updates to the very latest PHP version.

“Deploying Parallels Linux Shared Hosting NG represents the latest stage in the evolution of our Parallels Automation platform which we have been using since 2008,” said Michele Neylon, Chief Executive Officer, Blacknight. “Web hosting is an extremely competitive market, with more and more players entering the market every day. That means we need to take every opportunity to differentiate our offering. With the Parallels Automation platform, we can do just that. It just works.”

“Blacknight is the latest leading web hosting provider to select the Parallels Linux Shared Hosting NG module to enhance the capabilities of its Parallels Automation hosting platform,” said Jacek Murawski, General Manager and Vice President EMEA, Parallels. “It’s a great example of how hosters can extend Parallels Automation to constantly evolve their businesses. These capabilities, combined with the completeness of the Parallels Automation ecosystem, are what enables service providers like Blacknight Solutions to win in the marketplace.”
