VPS Windows 2003 gives dedicated hosting benefits for a lower price

NEW YORK (September 18, 2006) - Intermedia.NET, the US leader in Exchange and Web hosting for small and medium businesses, today announced its Windows 2003 Virtual Private Server (VPS) offering. Relatively unusual for Windows Web hosting, the Intermedia.NET Value Managed VPS hosting is a fully-managed virtual server powerful enough for demanding users.

For developers, it offers a highly-customizable environment without the higher cost of buying a physical dedicated server, as well as a 99.9% uptime SLA and 24×7 management and support from Microsoft Gold Certified staff. Pricing for the fully-managed service starts at $150 per month.

Each virtual private server is highly configurable and can be built to Web hosting customers’ exact specifications. Intermedia.NET’s VPS hosting servers reside in the company’s tier-1 datacenter and run on the latest dual-processor, dual-core Intel Xeon processors, with 8 GB RAM and SCSI RAID storage, for maximum uptime and performance.

“We are pleased to offer our customers an affordable option for dedicated Web hosting through our new VPS hosting environment,” said Serguei Sofinski, CEO of Intermedia.NET. “Through Intermedia.NET, companies can now get a server that is completely customized to their needs, without the high costs associated with managed dedicated server offerings.”

Intermedia.NET offers a wide variety of hosted Microsoft Exchange and business Web hosting plans, from the smallest businesses to substantial mid-sized organizations. For further details on our Value Managed VPS hosting plan, please visit http://www.intermedia.net/vps-value-plan.asp.

The survey also found that despite unhelpful stereotyping such as Apple’s ‘Mac and PC’ commercials, IT and business people are equally likely – at 5% each – to wear dated 1990s spectacles.
Confirming one stereotype, however, was the finding that IT workers were almost twice as likely to carry a Maglite and a Leatherman. Both businesspeople and IT people prefer a Leatherman over a MagLite, and are 20% more likely to carry one.

“Our research provides an interesting insight into the life of IT people,” said Rurik Bradbury, VP marketing for Intermedia.NET. “Our large Microsoft Gold Certified team of engineers was comforted that IT people are twice as likely to wear Megadeth and similar t-shirts, and that black jeans and ponytails are still hot items. However, they were distraught to find that the cellphone belt clip has gone ‘mainstream’ and lost its identification with the IT subculture.”

One interesting finding from the study was that IT staff are more likely to wear an expensive suit than a cheap one. While business staff are still far more likely to wear any suit at all, IT people shun cheap suits, with 33% more of them choosing a pricey suit over a bargain one. Fake expensive watches are currently not popular among techies, with only 2% of IT people admitting to wearing one.

“Intermedia.NET believes the findings in this study to be very valuable,” added Bradbury. “Both business managers and IT professionals are quickly adopting hosted Microsoft Exchange, and this research helps us to better understand the mindset of our customers.”

Intermedia.NET offers hosted Microsoft Exchange to small and medium businesses, with affordable plans starting at $9.95 per month for each user.
