PlexHosted Unveils New Cloud Offerings to Enhance Collaboration and Improve Productivity Across the Enterprise

Company’s managed hosting solutions make the cloud practical and affordable to businesses of all sizes; no more one-size-fits-all cloud at sky-high prices

Jamestown, R.I. – March 10, 2015 – PlexHosted, a developer of robust managed cloud-hosting solutions for better enterprise collaboration, today unveiled enhanced cloud offerings solutions for business, ensuring the cloud is both practical and affordable to organizations of all sizes.

Cloud migration can be daunting for small and mid-sized businesses, especially when faced with expensive service offerings from large vendors and filled with capabilities they don’t need. PlexHosted’s new hosting solutions provide the same quality of management as larger vendors, but at a much more attractive price.

PlexHosted’s new standalone farms start at $279 per month, which is 10% less than its nearest competitor. It’s two-tier farms (from $628), three-tier farms (from $877), and HA farms (from $1,799) also all show significant savings from average market prices. Those fees include 24/7 server(s) and services monitoring as part of the service – there are no additional set-up and hourly support fees as found at many other vendors. PlexHosted delivers cloud IaaS solutions and manages the farm all at one low monthly price.

In order to ensure optimal performance for businesses utilizing enterprise software platforms, PlexHosted has implemented Microsoft’s recommendations for the hardware used to support software like SharePoint, Exchange, and Lync. The result is a platform that performs better and works faster, ensuring customers are able to continue to achieve the business productivity they require.

Some of the technical improvements include faster RAM; a CPU core ratio now dedicated as 1vcpu = 1 physical core; increased HDD IO speed; and cloud machines that can now utilize a 1GB network for both public and private transfers. All of this allows for an almost immediate customer deployment and speedy hardware upgrades.

PlexHosted also utilizes geo-location in order to deploy servers both in the United States and globally, including Washington D.C., Houston, Dallas, San Jose, Seattle, Montreal, Toronto, Mexico, Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney, Melbourne, London, Amsterdam, Paris, and Frankfurt.
