VEXXHOST, one of the international leaders in online web and cloud hosting services, announced today the release of their redundant, high performance cloud computing platform.

The infrastructure-as-a-service platform is powered by OpenStack®, a highly scalable open source cloud operating system that powers some of the world’s largest enterprises.

This new cloud technology comes after over a year of development, engineering and testing in order to find the perfect combination of hardware and software. Starting from high performance, high-density servers up to procedures to add compute capacity near instantly.

For VEXXHOST’s customers, this means that getting their servers on the cloud is as simple as filling a small sign up form and creating their server. The control panel that powers this entire infrastructure is an in-house developed control panel that leverages all of the OpenStack® compute features, from simple server creation & power tasks up until complex security groups and key pair injection.

The cloud system offers very popular templates, both Linux & Windows with a list of templates being constantly added. The VEXXHOST platform also offers unique features that are not offered with any other OpenStack® cloud, such as advanced performance metrics for each server and full system logs, included for free.

The implementation between the operating system and cloud layer is fully integrated, allowing the cloud platform to interact with the customers cloud server transparently using an advanced agent. This means that customers can complete tasks such as password resets without any reboots.

It also allows customers to add/remove IP addresses from the control panel, and those changes will be reflected instantly in the network configuration on the server, allowing for easy server management. All these changes can be completed using full access to the OpenStack® API.

As online services start moving to cloud based services, VEXXHOST aims to continue to create and add new cloud based services to facilitate cloud adoptions, from basic services such as DNS up until complex services such as load balancers and fully managed and automatically scalable application hosting.

VEXXHOST, Inc. was founded in 2006 to provide online hosting services and it has grown to be one of the large technology leaders in the hosting industry, offering the latest cloud based services to thousands of customers, from small businesses to governments, from over 150 different countries.

Web hosting & Cloud hosting leader VEXXHOST has announced it’s launch of its dual-stack IPv4 and IPv6 network over its cloud infrastructure. VEXXHOST also announces their participation in World IPv6 day as a participating organization that has deployed an IPv6 network and allows for customers to deploy and deliver their content on IPv6.

As part of VEXXHOST’s initiative to increase the IPv6 connectivity around the world and allow organizations to bring their applications and services to IPv6, VEXXHOST is including 1 /64 subnet with each cloud server at no extra cost for all current and future clients. This means that every single new cloud server deployed on the cloud continues to come with 4 free IPv4 addresses as well as 1 free IPv6 subnet which contains 2^64 unique IP addresses.

The amount of total IPv4 addresses is a combination of 2^32 possible unique IP addresses. The IPv6 architecture has major modifications in place so that there is a total of 2^128 total unique IP addresses. This ensures that there should not be any future IP address issues, as per calculations; there are roughly 5000 IP addresses for every square micrometer of the Earth’s surface.

The dual-stack IPv4 and IPv6 implementation of the cloud allows customers to make their services available on both networks. This allows customers to become ready for the transition to IPv6, an issue that has to be addressed in the close future as we approach the end of IPv4 addressing. Once the IPv6 network is fully deployed all over the world, clients would safely and easily remove all IPv4 connectivity to switch to native IPv6 only.
