BOULDER, CO--(Marketwired - September 23, 2014) - SolidFire, ranked as the storage industry's #1 Solid-State Array, today announced that its cloud storage technology is at the core of pioneering VPS cloud hosting provider ServInt's radical new SolidFire Site Performance Guarantee. ServInt's new service level agreement (SLA) guarantees that no customer web site will ever slow down due to the host server not providing 100 percent of the CPU, RAM, disk and IOPS purchased.
"Many hosting providers tout 100 percent uptime, but in this industry, that's simply a minimum service level offering. We're setting a new bar for hosting SLAs with an aggressive service guarantee defined not just by uptime, but also by critical server resources -- specifically RAM, CPU, IOPS and disk space," said ServInt's Chief Operating Officer, Christian Dawson. "If the performance of any customer site running on ServInt SolidFire SSD VPS suffers for longer than five continuous minutes as a result of a shortcoming in the provisioning of any of these four resources, we'll refund that entire month's hosting fee. Thanks to SolidFire's unparalleled Quality of Service (QoS), we can now deliver guaranteed levels of IOPS to our multi-tenant VPS infrastructure -- until now, the one performance-impacting server resource no hosting company has been able to guarantee."
"Servint is one of our favorite hosting partners," said Peter Sena, Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Digital Surgeons. "In a world centered around customer experience where uptime and high availability is paramount, we're thrilled with their expanded offering and dedication to support, and we look forward to a continued relationship with them."
