New Canadian Web Hosting Cloud Capability with VMware Brings Together Industry Leader in Canadian Hosting and IT Services with Highly Redundant Virtual Private Cloud Infrastructure

Vancouver, British Columbia, August 08, 2012

Canadian Web Hosting, a leading provider of IT infrastructure and web hosting solutions in Canada, has announced an upgrade to their CA Cloud solutions today by adding additional Dell Equalogic PS6500 and PS6100XV Storage Area Network (SANs) devices in their Toronto, ON and Vancouver, BC data centres. Canadian Web Hosting selected Dell's Equalogic series because of their high performance capabilities for business-critical applications and customizable data sharing and storage capabilities to support rapid data growth. More importantly, these SANs will enhance Canadian Web Hosting's CA Cloud platform by supporting mainstream enterprise applications, disaster recovery solutions and e-commerce environments.

"Online infrastructure and data storage needs are multiplying at a rapid rate and our customers are relying on us to deliver highly available, flexible and most importantly, improved safety of their data. With software-based SAN solutions, customers are getting storage that utilizes a range of generalized hardware with no guarantees on performance or reliability," says Matt McKinney, Director at Canadian Web Hosting. "With Dell's hardware based solutions, we can deliver guaranteed service levels and achieve enterprise grade solutions at a cost that makes it accessible to everyone."

"Customers now have a seamlessly scalable architecture and intelligent hardware arrays that easily integrate with their tier-1 applications and virtual environments including VMware that allows them to expand their virtual environments without adding cost or complexity," said Kevin Liang, CTO of Canadian Web Hosting. "In addition, because of our unique geography, customers can setup hardware or software based disaster recovery solutions that allow them to meet corporate governance requirements."

Integral to their cloud strategy, this deployment further supports Canadian Web Hosting's multi-tier CA Cloud solutions with hardware-based storage that is ideal for businesses looking to support their SaaS, IaaS or high transactional e-commerce environments where high reliability, scalability and performance are required. When combined with their SSAE 16 Type II certification (SAS70) , customers now have more choices in the cloud and will see improved ROI during pre- and post-deployment. To date, Canadian Web Hosting customers have seen savings of up to 50% when compared to competing cloud solutions.

Canadian Web Hosting's cloud solutions are available on monthly plans, and also include true 24/7 support with certified support teams including VMware Certified Professionals. Customers also have the ability to utilize Xen or Hyper-V virtualization platforms upon request.
