Web hosting provider GigeNET’s SBU GigeNET Cloud has launched ‘CloudLite’, a cloud server offering for public cloud customers. With this launch, GigeNET seeks to provide scalable services to a wide range of customers producing applications in the public cloud.
According to GigeNET, customers are looking for cloud products that can scale memory at ease in public cloud environments. In addition to this, they also believe that with scale, the performance of such products should not waver as one component of the product is amplified.
Speaking about the launch, Ameen Pishdadi, Founder and President of GigeNET Cloud, commented:
Our classic cloud product allowed for extreme levels of granular control over system resources with the ability to scale memory by the megabyte. However, this form of control is no longer a common use case.
Instead, customers have grown accustomed to consuming public clouds in a package form, and our Lite Cloud product reflects this reality.
GigeNET say that ‘CloudLite’ will cater to different sets of customers. In order to cater to their particular needs, GigeNET added that they have launched:
- ‘CloudLite Balanced’ for customers looking for high memory and compute speed allocation,
- ‘CloudLite Core’ for customers that need high computational support for scientific workloads and high-trafficked websites, and
- ‘CloudLite Max’ for customers that need increased memory and overall application performance.
Explaining the advantage offered by different versions of ‘CloudLite’, Joe De Paolo, Senior Vice President of Products at GigeNET, said:
GigeNET Cloud Lite may not have the same level of control as our classic offering, but, like our classic cloud product, it does score consistently higher in both performance and reliability tests when compared to other clouds.
We wanted to make sure we kept the innovations GigeNET is known for without compromise and I think the team did just that.
