Many Web Hosting Services Suffer Last Week Due to Service-Outages of Four Major Services

Last week was one of the nastiest week for web hosting services users of four big companies i.e. Azure Cloud hosting, Facebook, twitter, and Google talk. These services faced some serious outages of their services of web hosting customers.

Microsoft Azure compute services went down in Western Europe area for more than 2.5 hours that suffered many customers in the area. Spokesperson of Azure described the outage this way, “The recent Windows Azure service interruption in the Western Europe sub-region has been resolved. We apologies for any inconvenience this outage may have caused our customers. The duration of the service interruption was approximately 2.5 hours. Customers who have questions regarding this incident are encouraged to contact Customer Service and Support.”

Meanwhile, Twitter also faced a major services outage last week. Twitter was facing some browsing, SSL, and over limit technical issues in both United States, and United Kingdom on July 26, 2012. This issue lasted for few hours and later the twitter updated that now the services are normal and doing well.

Google talk went voiceless since the start of the day on July 26, 2012. There were thousands of twits on twitter from different clients that used the services of G-talk. Google talk team came forward at about 09:50 Hrs early in the morning with following update:

“We are continuing to investigate this issue. We will provide an update by 7/26/12 3:50 PM detailing when we expect to resolve the problem.”

Second update from G-talk came out at about 11:25 Hrs reading:

“The problem with Google Talk should be resolved. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and continued support. Please rest assured that system reliability is a top priority at Google, and we are making continuous improvements to make our systems better. If you are still experiencing an issue, please contact us via the Google Help Center.” It was very messy day for web hosting and other customers who normally rely on the services of Facebook, G-talk, Azure, and twitter.

Canadian Web Hosting Launches Dedicated IP Addresses for Its Customers

A leading web hosting company, Canadian Web Hosing has recently announced that it has planned to release unique, dedicated IP addresses for the SEO Web Hosting customers. These IP addresses will be based in all major Canadian states including Vancouver, BC and Toronto, ON and will be available to all new and current web hosting customers. Canadian web hosting is hoping to improve its ROI by providing increased access to a wide pool of IP space. They also believe that this move will offer enhanced brand building and increased online visibility at a fraction of the cost.

“IP diversification is one of the easiest ways to increase search engine visibility of your website,” said Kevin Liang, SEO expert at Canadian Web Hosting. “With the addition of these new IP ranges, Canadian Web Hosting is able to give our customers a significant advantage in building an online presence, and when you combine this with our 100% guaranteed uptime, 24/7 support and state of the art web hosting infrastructure, our customers are able to compete at the highest levels and improve their SEO strategies.”

“With these new IP ranges, customers can continue to host their own network of sites and utilize multiple IP hosting for faster link indexing and creating a network of different, but related, websites on different IP ranges that link back to the target site. These new IP’s can be used with Canadian Web Hosting’s recently launched CA Cloud servers, as well as all virtual private servers (VPS), and Dedicated Servers. Each new server deployment comes with two dedicated IP addresses and additional IP’s can be assigned upon request for $2.00 per IP.

‘Advanced Web Hosting’ Moves its Data Center to Virginia

Web hosting provider ‘Advanced Web hosting’ recently announced that it has upgrades its infrastructure by colocation to a new data center in Northern Virginia

This move is as a result of the shutdown of SoftLayer‘s HOU01 data center which was housing Advanced Web Hosting for over 10 years. Advanced web hosting managed to go through with the migration while retaining the ability to offer best services and also within a short time.

Even though the company had been planning to upgrade its services, the shutting down of the SoftLayer data center sped up the process considerably.

The Advanced Web team acquired new Dell R310 and R610 servers that were placed in Equinix’s Ashburn, Virginia data center.

“The most difficult part of this process was the timeframe that was thrust upon us. This unexpected move came during a period when we were already inundated with large projects and had little spare time to squeeze from our technical staff,” said Brad Caricofe, Advanced Web director of operations. “Our operating principles had already given us the capability to recover our systems from massive catastrophe, such as losing a data center to fire or weather-related events, within 24 hours. We applied some of what we’d learned in the past while planning for the unknown, to ensure that we could move everything within the requested amount of time.”

The company said its existing disaster recovery planning protocols also assisted with its ability to migrate customer data quickly. Advanced Web said its clients now benefit from a faster and more stable network, and greater systems redundancy.

Though Caricofe admits the company “spent far more money than we intended to with our planned upgrade in 2013,” it is “extremely happy with the results.”

Netwise Hosting Launches a Promising New Product to Ease Colocation Deployment

Netwise Hosting recently announced the official launch of their new approach to colocation pricing with Colocation Calculator. This calculator is a real time quotation service and Netwise’s website can get on the spot pricing information for the server colocation deployments. This new system is expected to become a valuable resource for clients who are looking for such services.

This unique system uses slider base interface which generates quotes based on Rack Space, Power, Connectivity, and other extra options. This then helps you build a live quotation right from the browser.

Managing Director, Matthew Butt gave comment on the company’s new Colocation Calculator;”We built this system with the end-user in mind. We know that not everyone wants to start lengthy discussions with a host from day one – sometimes they just want some pricing to get the ball rolling. Our customers have always enjoyed our pricing transparency, and we hope this helps further solidify our position as the data centre to watch in the coming months and years. Not only are we routinely one of the highest-value colocators in the industry, we are also supremely upfront with our pricing – something missing in today’s market.”

Netwise Hosting are planning to develop this idea further in the very near future, with additional features that Senior Manager, Matt Seaton hopes will become a widely used set of tools on the net.

“We have a trademarked service coming soon called Power Tools that will extend this system even further, with the ability to estimate power usage very accurately based on a range of popular hardware sets. Soon after, we hope to include a comparison service, whereby our live quotes are pitched against key competitors to give users a tangible idea of how well we are placed within the market. We are undoubtedly the only data centre in the world pushing these ideas forward, and hope that this brings us a great deal of success in the future.”

EMC Acquires Watch4net to Broaden their Prospects in the Industry

EMC, a company specializing in hardware has recently acquired Montreal based Watch4net.They are a provider of superior performance management software. It specializes in providing real-time, historical and projected visibility into the performance of the network, data centers and cloud infrastructures.

“One of the reasons Watch4net is a good fit for EMC is that we’re focused across domains: across network, compute and storage,” Ken MacDonald, senior director of marketing for EMC’s Information Management Group, told eWEEK. “EMC already has the ability to monitor performance to Watch4net, and then provide the correlation and root-cause analysis and service assurance capabilities that the ITOI suite provides.

“Both products have the ability to reach across the three domains and also across the physical and virtual environments [within the data center].”

Watch4net provides many VMware environments include something called a vSwitch, a virtual switch, “which in some ways becomes a bit of a blind spot for the VM [virtual machine] administrator,” MacDonald said.

“It’s tough for them to really understand if the connections are being maintained within the virtual switch. One of the important features of the ITOI (which includes Watch4net) is the ability to monitor the virtual switch and include that as part of our correlation and root-cause analysis capabilities,” MacDonald said.

Watch4net CEO Michel Foix and most of his 70-person team will be retained and will report to Jay Mastaj, senior vice president and general manager of EMC’s Infrastructure Management Group.

WebHostRanking.com Releases VPS, Dedicated & Cloud Hosting Providers

WebHostRanking.com is one of the best resources for web hosting reviews and information about related industry topics and opportunities. Started by industry professionals who have been involved in web hosting and related fields since the last 1990s, Web Host Ranking provides detailed, first-hand knowledge, experience, and help about topics ranging from creating a WordPress blog to dedicated server hosting and much more. The Web Host Ranking team is excited to announce the latest expansion of the site to include information and reviews on VPS (Virtual Private Server) hosting, dedicated servers, and cloud hosting services.

The Web Host Ranking website is updated several times a week with new How-to articles, web hosting reviews, awards, marketing tips, web host comparisons and more. Web hosting service providers can visit the Get Listed page and quickly learn what it takes to have their service reviewed on the Web Host Ranking site. Every review is unique and contains detailed information about the company and services they offer. There are many things, in addition to web hosting which involves creating and maintaining a successful web presence. Many web hosts provide all the basic tools for building a website but have very few products or services which will help the webmaster understand search engine optimization, website marketing, and how to analyze website traffic and statistics. Web Host Ranking is a one-stop place for webmasters to get help and information about each of these topics. Users can also compare hosts like BlueHost vs. DreamHost to find which provider will best meet his/her needs.

The new categories on Web Host Ranking provide a unique opportunity for service providers that specialize in cloud hosting, VPS hosting, or dedicated server hosting to receive free advertising. Each company can advertise through a company review, web hosting coupon offers, and can also provide other professional details through a web hosting interview with senior management or another designated staff member. Web Host Ranking is different from the other web hosting review sites out there because it takes the time to work directly with each web hosting service provider in an effort to represent the most accurate company information, current promo offers, and company values to the public. Web Host Ranking also allows individual users to review a specific host he/she has had experience with; but every comment is moderated to prevent spam and fake reviews from ever appearing on the site.
