ScienceLogic announced UK web hosting provider Fasthosts Internet Ltd. has chosen to standardize on ScienceLogic’s cloud management and IT operations platform. Using ScienceLogic EM7, Fasthosts’ internal IT staff, channel partners and end-user customers can access personalized views into performance and availability across the shared resources that support the Fasthosts’ Web hosting business, the largest in the UK, as well as its Rise subsidiary, which provides Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud computing services exclusively through its partner network.
Fasthosts, based in the UK and operating from their dedicated UK data centers, manages more than 1 million domains and delivers more than 43 million email messages daily. The company heavily leverages Microsoft software and will use ScienceLogic EM7 across its Data Center on Demand (DCoD) platform that is based on the largest Microsoft Dynamic Data Center deployments in Europe.
“ScienceLogic enables Fasthosts and Rise to better manage service levels and offer customers unparalleled insight into the performance of our virtual and cloud offerings,” said Andy Burton, CEO of Fasthosts. “ScienceLogic EM7 provides centralized management that identifies and solves issues before applications and end users are adversely impacted. Also, by providing administrators and customers with personalized access into real-time analytics, ScienceLogic has helped us create an important new revenue stream with the Fasthosts Advanced Server Monitoring offering.”
Employing the latest Microsoft Hyper-V virtualization technology, the DCoD delivers Fasthosts and Rise customers a secure, reliable infrastructure that can be provisioned within seconds through a simple-to-use portal. The Fasthosts’ Advanced Server Monitoring service offering powered by ScienceLogic EM7 gives customers greater control over DCoD-based virtual and cloud resources by enabling them to manage their individual environments as well as optimize the hosted services for their needs.
