SOFTBANK IDC of Japan Selects SWsoft Virtualization and Automation Software
SWsoft today announced that SOFTBANK IDC has selected SWsoft Virtuozzo virtualization software and SWsoft Plesk control panel software to enhance its value added virtual dedicated server service called “Shared Hosting Web,” available this month.  

With Virtuozzo operating system (OS) server virtualization technology, each virtual private server is completely isolated to ensure full functionality and security.  Due to greater integration with Virtuozzo through SWsoft’s OPEN FUSION technology initiative, SWsoft Plesk software will give SOFTBANK IDC’s customers easier and better management capability.

“Virtuozzo demonstrates excellent performance with low overhead and solid resource management at high workloads, and it solves the server resource interference and security issue for shared hosting”, said Makoto Oya, General Manager of Technical Solution Dept., Technology Division, SOFTBANK IDC. “We are confident that Virtuozzo is the best choice to provide our customers with high-quality web hosting services.”

“SOFTBANK IDC Service -- with highly-secured and reliable VPS capability -- will be welcomed by users who want high-quality hosting services," said Matthew Edmond, Managing Director, SWsoft K.K. “We expect SWsoft virtualization and automation technology will help Softbank drive new value-added services.

SWsoft Virtuozzo is the leading virtualization solution for hosting providers.  Virtuozzo operating system virtualization software uses patented technology to create multiple, isolated virtual environments - or virtual private servers - on a single physical server and operating system, making the most efficient use of hardware, software and other resources. Each virtual environment has the same performance and functionality as a stand-alone server and can be managed with Plesk, 3rd party control panels or in-house systems.

SWsoft Plesk is the leading multi-platform control panel designed to meet the needs of small to large hosting providers, resellers and end users. With patented hosting technology, the software is easy to use and automates a large number of tasks that allow service providers to reduce operating costs while increasing efficiency, profitability and customer satisfaction. 

OPEN FUSION is an SWsoft technology initiative to improve integration among a wide range of systems, third-party applications and modules, and custom and in-house solutions. The OPEN FUSION platform enables optimized delivery of software-as-a-service (SaaS) and traditional hosting services to help ISVs and service providers take full advantage of new opportunities in the market.
