SINGAPORE, Oct. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SimplerCloud, a new Singapore start-up, has launched high-performance, real-time, 100% self-manageable cloud servers at record-low prices to boost the Asia-Pacific cloud hosting industry.
Eschewing the complex ordering processes and long deployment times that are still commonly associated with cloud computing in the region, SimplerCloud servelets are instantly deployable pre-packaged virtual machines (VMs) that target businesses and developers who do not need the costly, proprietary enterprise cloud hosting services that currently dominate Asia's cloud hosting offerings.
Despite the low price tag, SimplerCloud servelets are powerful -- the smallest $10/month plan is a fully redundant cloud server with self-healing, highly scalable and redundant distributed SSD storage, snapshot backups, choice of OS, database and server control panels, free DNS hosting, root access with password reset feature, console access, and high-availability failover upon physical node failure. Running on Singapore's multi-gigabit Internet backbone, SimplerCloud servelets are ready less than 10 minutes from ordering and aim to attract companies in Asia that seek the benefits of cloud infrastructure virtualization without bloated overheads.
"The real advantages of the cloud are choice, scale, speed and affordability, yet many Asia cloud hosting providers still don't prioritize these elements," said Indra Pramana, CEO, SimplerCloud Pte Ltd. "Our customers enjoy quality cloud hosting plans without unnecessarily complex ordering systems, long deployment times, annual contracts and over-managed sales cycles, and the result is a simpler, better cloud - blazing fast, high-performance, fully automated cloud servers that deploy in a snap, with on-the-fly upgrades and monthly contracts."
Pramana's vision of an easier-to-use but more powerful cloud offering was formed during his 15 years' web hosting industry expertise as Vice President of Network, Webvisions, a large Asia-Pacific web hosting provider whose co-founders, including Singaporean angel investor Roger Lim, have also funded SimplerCloud. SimplerCloud will add Indonesia and China nodes in the next 2 years.
SimplerCloud Pte Ltd is a new infrastructure-as-a-service cloud hosting company from Singapore, offering high-performance Windows and Linux cloud services with simple management, billing and provisioning interfaces.
