Zeus Technology, the only software-based application traffic management company, today announces that Ireland's leading Outsourced IT Services and Internet Hosting Provider, Hosting365, has joined the Zeus Service Provider License Agreement (SPLA). The partnership will enable Hosting365 to meet the needs of its customers by offering a comprehensive layer-7 load balancing and application acceleration solution with a monthly usage fee.
The Zeus Extensible Traffic Manager (ZXTM) software solution is offered in the market today via a SPLA model, which gives Hosters and Service Providers a significant advantage. Customers business requirements are constantly changing to keep up with and take advantage of the latest web technology. Therefore, there is a growing demand for Service Providers to deliver application acceleration and delivery solutions that go beyond the capabilities of many existing hardware based products.
Kevin O’Connor, Channel Manager, Hosting365, comments: “We partnered with Zeus, so we can have the benefit of providing a traffic management solution in the Cloud, coupled with utilizing a unique SPLA model which enables us to lease the ZXTM software. Flexibility for us is also key. We chose Zeus because it can handle huge bursts of traffic and can scale both vertically and horizontally, so the solution can grow alongside the needs of our customers. Those customers will now be able to take advantage of the powerful Zeus solution by renting it monthly.
“The Cloud is a highly cost-effective platform for the majority of companies, as they can scale their hardware requirements to match demand. Our customers have full control over their infrastructure usage maintaining a handle on costs at all times, as well as significantly reducing their IT web expenditure.”
Deployed literally in a matter of hours, the Zeus ZXTM software provides an impressive range of traffic management features and functionality, is intuitive with an easy to use interface and will run on any server hardware platform.
Hosting365 offers its Cloud hosting solutions as Platform as a Service, enabling customers to pay for services as and when they use them. Thus, as the Zeus SPLA program is a monthly, subscription-based model with minimal up-front costs, it seamlessly integrates with Hosting 365’s business model, by providing on-demand IT services.
Steve Webb, VP Sales, Zeus, adds: “With Hosting365’s specialist knowledge in outsourced IT and infrastructure hosting and as Ireland’s only Cloud Computing provider, we are delighted to have them on board our SPLA program.
