iWeb.com Launches New “Kinder” Cloud Computing Service

Published on April 4, 2012 at 12:00 pm by iWeb-Andre in: iWeb Articles

Montreal, April 4th, 2012 – iWeb announces the launch of its new Cloud Server service, powered by its Smart Layer Technology, engineered to be “kinder” and easier to manage by customers, who increasingly require Cloud platforms and servers which are easy to use, quickly deployed and provide capacity and performance on demand – billed by the hour.

“Our customers asked for cloud services, and we heard them loud and clear. We also heard horror stories from businesses that had been charged outrageous amounts for data transfer fees using other cloud platforms. So we decided to build a kinder cloud; one that won’t drown your business with unexpected charges” says Martin Leclair, President of Products and iWeb co-Founder.

Designed to meet the high customer demand for scalable server hosting solutions, provisioned on demand and billed on an hourly basis, the iWeb Cloud Service allows customers to utilize the resources they need, when they need them most and for just as long as required.

“By extending our SmartLayer technology, we have developed a highly performing cloud offering that will exceed the needs of most customers, who can now build their hosting infrastructure using both the new Cloud Server and the Smart Server, which share the same high performance local network”.

The iWeb cloud is a natural progression for the company, which has focused on expanding its highly resilient infrastructure with a high degree of automation. The past two years has seen dramatic growth at iWeb both in terms of customer growth and in terms of the investments made to build highly automated and integrated solutions.

For a limited time, the new Cloud service offers unmetered traffic  and no data transfer charges within the iWeb network and out to the internet. Competitively priced and backed by iWeb’s 24/7 hardware, infrastructure and network support, the new Cloud Service is available directly from iWeb.com and through iWeb’s extensive partner and reseller network.
