Liquid Web Announces New Partnership with VMware

Liquid Web, the Lansing, MI-based managed hosting and managed application service provider, has formed a new partnership with VMware and has launched a new VMware and NetApp powered managed private cloud to its customers. Many SMBs want the flexibility, scalability, and fast provisioning offered by public clouds, but the security, performance, and high availability that comes with a private cloud, which is necessary in highly regulated industries such as healthcare for mission-critical applications, disaster recovery, and compliance. Liquid Web’s VMware Private Cloud gives them the advantages of both. The new managed private cloud offering allows customers to provision multiple virtual machines through a single cluster of physical servers which support both Windows and Linux VMs that can be run concurrently on the same hardware. “Today’s customers are not only looking for security and flexibility with a private cloud but also the management that frees them up to focus on their business,” said Melanie Purkis, Liquid Web’s Director of Managed Hosting Products. “Managed hosting and...

Liquid Web Launches Protection & Remediation Services for its Managed Hosting Solutions

Lansing, MI-based managed hosting and managed application services provider Liquid Web has launched new Protection & Remediation Services for its Managed Hosting solutions to better protect customers from cyberattacks and help them achieve their compliance objectives.

Liquid Web achieves this through the use of a range of preventative security tools such as web application firewalls, antivirus protection, and vulnerability scanning. These measures ensure...
