Virtualization Technology News and Information
Genesis Provides VMware ESX Server Leasing

Genesis Multimedia Solutions provides a high-availability solution for virtual machines that can be connected to a virtual network using VMware's ESX Server technology.

Unlike general web hosting providers who provide para-virtualization environments, Genesis provides an environment for production use that allows root control over the virtual machine.

What you get:

  • Unlimited virtual machines within your lease
  • Sub-leases are available
  • Highly-available hardware consisting of HP ProLiant DL-series machines with redundant power supplies, redundant fans, redundant fiber channel cards, and redundant drives
  • All hardware is monitored for failure at our NOC using HP’s Insight Manager and Nimsoft’s NimBUS so parts can be replaced before a host will fail completely
  • Choose your own Operating System
  • Virtual Center access to perform snapshots, access the console, and view performance statistics
  • Your own Resource Pool
  • Guaranteed CPU and Memory up to your lease agreement
  • Unlimited CPU and Memory beyond your lease agreement if resources in the cluster are available (we price the service such that there are always resources beyond all leases)
  • Redundant SAN Switching
  • Redundant Ethernet Switching
  • Your own SAN LUN (15k RPM SCSI disks in RAID 0, 1, 5, or 6 depending on your needs)
  • Disk-to-disk backup to a separate backup SAN is available for all of your virtual machines with a 30-day retention (additional retention periods are available)
  • Network Bandwidth – 1Mbps included, additional bandwidth measured using the 95% method
  • High-Availability – We keep at least 10% of our hosts available for fail-over in case one of our hosts fails. If a host fails, all virtual machines are started on another host.
  • Your own VLAN, completely segregated from other customers (no broadcast traffic from other customers and no VLAN or MAC address spoofing)

If you have existing systems that you would like to move into a virtual environment at a data center, we provide the service to convert these systems using P->V technology, and if you decide to revert back to physical machines, V->P technology.
