Kyup Brings Secure Container Cloud Hosting to Market
— The Kyup Platform Delivers Instantly Scalable Container Cloud Hosting
ALEXANDRIA, Virginia, March 24, 2015 – Kyup (https://kyup.com), a next-gen cloud hosting provider recently ended beta and is announcing today that their secure container platform has been officially completed and is currently available. During the beta period, the platform was tested by more than 1,000 users with nearly 3,000 containers deployed. Within three months of beta testing, Kyup has taken the experiences and feedback of beta users to enhance their complete and comprehensive cloud hosting solution into a secure, reliable production-ready cloud environment.
Kyup, formerly known as GetClouder (https://kyup.com/blog/getclouder-is-now-kyup/), provides fast, affordable and scalable container cloud hosting for businesses and individuals. The Kyup Platform allows businesses to take advantage of the high-performing capabilities and unmatched elasticity of bare-metal Linux containers. Using the latest and most resource-efficient virtualization method, Kyup provides standalone secure containers with SSD storage that allows instant provisioning, auto scaling and high availability. Their containers do not have to be rebooted when scaled up, meaning that you can add more resources on-the-go with no need to stop and start your instance. They offer three different approaches to scaling:
- Real-time scaling lets users resize their server effective immediately.
- Scheduled scaling helps in case you can predict when you will need to scale your server e.g., on a launch date or promotional events
- Rules-based scaling lets users define auto-scaling rules based on custom resource thresholds. The platform provisions and shuts down containers in seconds so additional servers can fire up very quickly.
“Our goal at Kyup is to make cloud hosting more affordable, redundant and easily scalable for our users, and with the release of the Kyup platform we are able to make this a reality,” said Tenko Nikolov, Kyup Founder and CEO. “We wanted individuals and companies alike to be able to scale their cloud server instantly and use those increased resources for as long as they need to – if you only need more power for an hour, you should be able to get that instantly and scale down the same way when you no longer need it.”
Kyup currently enables businesses and individuals to use bare-metal Linux containers that match their specific needs on an hourly basis, scaling to fit in combination with 5 seconds provisioning and high performance. Kyup stores users’ data on SSDs working in parallel in the cloud, so its performance is multiple times faster than traditional hardware solutions – and much more cost-efficient. Kyup’s interface is designed to be as simple and straight-forward as possible, so that setting up and managing servers is easy and fast, whereas other cloud providers offer over-cluttered dashboards and settings you need to spend time learning in order to use.
“The interface is completely different and clean” – says renowned WordPress expert Chris Lema (chrislema.com), one of the first beta-testers of the platform. “I watched Kyup define the size of the container, configure the Linux distribution or stack on my phone and my phone’s screen refreshed with a new declaration that things were finished in 4 seconds. Kyup is also introducing 5 seconds provisioning time for a WordPress cloud server. These are the level of options, sophistication, and speed that Kyup’s team is bringing to hosting.”
Kyup is a next-generation container cloud hosting platform, powered by the latest innovations in container virtualization and SSD storage. The company offers secure Linux containers with SSD storage to provide users with a resource-efficient, instantly-scalable and highly-redundant hosting platform for their apps and web projects. Kyup was started by the founders of SiteGround (https://siteground.com), who are a leader in the web hosting market with nearly 10 years of experience in the industry, it is headquartered in Sofia, Bulgaria and for now remains privately held.
