8 To Infinity Launches High-Performance Virtualized Hosting

SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE--(Marketwire - Feb 28, 2013) - 8 To Infinity Pte Ltd, one of Asia''s longest-established Internet hosting companies, today announced it is launching virtualized hosting for its worldwide customers of web hosting, colocation, dedicated servers, and managed services. Customers will enjoy faster speeds, greater reliability, more flexibility, and higher security.

"Server virtualization allows us to achieve greater throughput and configuration flexibility, and that means faster speeds and higher reliability for our customers," said Konstantin Bezruchenko, chief technical officer at 8 To Infinity''s parent company XBT Holding Ltd. "This project extends the major upgrade to our network completed in November 2012, and it reflects our continued investment in offering the highest-performance hosting environment in Asia."

Virtual servers can be more quickly provisioned and optimized than individual physical servers, permitting faster and more flexible hardware deployment and replacement. By isolating virtual networks from each other, virtualization enhances stability and security. In addition, 8 To Infinity''s virtualized hosting provides faster and more flexible back up, giving customers greater peace of mind. 8 To Infinity is using Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012.

The project began rollout this month and is to be completed in March. The last major upgrade of 8 To Infinity''s infrastructure, http://www.8.to.
