Host Virtual Upgrades Hong Kong Datacenter
SANTA MONICA, Calif (PRWEB) September 05, 2014
With increasing demands on capacity, cloud hosting, IaaS (or infrastructure as a service) and BGP/Anycast leader Host Virtual is improving its Hong Kong datacenter â€” months after its last upgrade at the location.
Continuing growth traffic to Hong Kong and mainland China is prompting Host Virtual to beef up its data capacity options for customers, Kris Slevens, director of customer experience, said.
"Our Hong Kong datacenter is on a continual upgrade path â€” as are all of our datacenters," Slevens added. "Maintaining the best virtual hosting and BGP/Anycast cloud means that our resources have to be constantly monitored and improved."
Unlike other hosting providers, Host Virtual routes its data directly to China and other parts of Asia â€” without having to loop back to Los Angeles. As a member of the Hong Kong Internet Exchange (or HKIX), Host Virtual offers low latency connections in Hong Kong and Asia through its hundreds of peering partners. In addition, premium fiber optic connections routes its customersâ€™ data directly into mainland China.
"With over a billion people, thereâ€™s a huge demand to reach China. The explosive growth in users month over month requires a constant upgrade cycle. Host Virtual is committed to ensuring our customers have the best service, connectivity and service options for their virtual servers. We are optimized for customers who require a premium presence in the region," Slevens added.
Host Virtual also offers load balancing and worldwide CDN support with its cloud hosting infrastructure as a service, or IaaS. Over 500 operating system templates can be deployed by the companyâ€™s customers to its data centers that utilize native dual-stack IPv4 and IPv6 support.
