MaximumASP Unveils ''Virtual Environment''
MaximumASP announces the availability of a completely new line of Microsoft-based virtual web hosting. MaximumASP's "Virtual Environment" powered by Virtuozzo, provides a quantum leap in server virtualization features and resources, while still providing the same high level of Superior Support for which MaximumASP is known in the industry.

Virtual Environments are isolated and secure "server instances" that occur on a single physical server, enabling better server utilization while also ensuring that applications do not conflict with each other. Each Virtual Environment performs and executes exactly like a stand-alone server; VE can be rebooted independently and provides independent root access, users, IP addresses, memory, processor utilization, files, applications, system libraries and configuration files.

Virtual Environment management tools provide unique benefits empowering users to perform many different administrative functions without affecting other "server instances" or requiring any administrative support from MaximumASP staff. The included Power Panel allows access to the server at all times and routine tasks are simplified making server management easier to learn, faster to use than ever before.

Silas Boyle, Managing Partner of MaximumASP, explains, "The Virtual Environment provides a lower priced alternative to our dedicated server offerings without making any compromise on quality." Each Virtual Environment performs and executes exactly like a stand-alone server for its users and applications. Boyle also said, "VE is an outstanding way for customers to take advantage of many of the benefits of a dedicated server at a lower price point until they are ready to upgrade to a truly dedicated server."

The light overhead, efficient design, overall completeness and proven performance of Virtual Environment also make it the right virtualization choice for server consolidation, disaster recovery and production servers with live applications and data.

"SWsoft's Virtuozzo software delivers powerful server virtualization technology as part of MaximumASP's Virtual Environment web hosting solution," said Kurt Daniel, vice president of marketing and alliances, SWsoft. "Virtuozzo's low overhead architecture will help MaximumASP maximize its resources in the competitive hosting market with capabilities such as automated provisioning and upgrades, and self-management tools that increase server utilization with minimal downtime."

MaximumASP is committed to providing all customers with advanced monitoring, critical updates, patches, anti-virus protection, and 24/7/365 email or phone support. These features and the introduction of "Virtual Environment" continue to confirm our position as a leader in the hosting industry.

Virtual Environment Key Benefits:

-- Isolation

Provides isolation between each VE and each customer. No customer can affect or crash other customers on the same server, even when customers have administrative access. Minimizes downtime and eliminates service issues and conflicts between customers.

-- Customer Self - Management

Web based interface allows users to backup, restore, manage, recover, repair and reinstall a VE without technical support assistance.

-- Backup and Restore

Self-administered incremental and scheduled backup capability comes as a part of the feature set. Backups enable quick restoration of each VE without support intervention.

-- Secure

The underlying architecture changes access points on a preset schedule and prevent Denial of Service and other malicious attacks.
