Denver, CO, December 9, 2009—Hosting.com, the leading provider of managed hosting, cloud hosting and colocation solutions and a strategic VMware vCloud partner, today announced that clients can upload their own VMware virtual machines or VMDK (Virtual Machine Disk Format) files to Hosting.com's Cloud Enterprise and Cloud Dedicated solutions.
Hosting.com released this functionality in a limited beta in November and is one of the first cloud service providers to offer this capability to VMware clients and users. Cloud Enterprise customers now have the flexibility and portability to move their virtual machines, either from their own environment or another host, into one of Hosting.com's Cloud Super Sites.
This solution can provide VMware vSphere users with a redundant layer of offsite disaster recovery and business continuance services in a secure hosted environment. Current and new Cloud Enterprise customers can access this functionality via the Customer Control Panel.
