If you’re looking for web hosting in the cloud in Canada, you’re in luck. Two major web hosting companies, Netelligent and Savvis, are adding new cloud web hosting services in Canada. Netelligent’s new service is called NETEL CLOUD. It offers white-label cloud hosting in Canada for resellers who want to provide services to businesses of all sizes. The new service uses XEN virtualization technology and redundancy at every level of the hosting environment. It starts at $21 per month.
Those interested in Netelligent Hosting in the cloud can choose between Advanced Cloud Machines and a Cloud Virtual Datacenter. The first service offers up to 21.3Ghz of vCPU, 192GB of RAM, 750MBps of port speed, and a wide variety of data storage options, including SAS, SATA, and hybrid solutions. Customers can use the service within minutes of placing their order.
Advanced Cloud Machines comes in a variety of levels and pricing schemes to suit both those who have basic needs all the way up to businesses with complex, mission-critical hosting requirements. Customers can choose from Linux or Windows platforms and can use cPanel, Direct Admin, or Plesk control panels.
Netelligent’s Cloud Virtual Datacenter offers users (primarily hosting resellers) a completely integrated multi-server Cloud Hosting environment. It scales to as many CPUs as needed, and starts at $399 per month. For full details on these new services, visit the Web Host Industry Review item.
