As this year is drawing to a close and the holiday season is upon us, we thought it would be nice with a short recap of the year. We’re proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish.
Dropsuite has built an Atomia integration that will let you sell seamless, cloud-based site backups to your hosting customers. It’s almost here, so we wanted you to have a chance to learn more about this new integration, about the Dropsuite Website Backup product (a.k.a. Dropmysite), and how your hosting business can benefit from it.
Amazon Web Services was launched back in 2006, a move that has paid off handsomely for Amazon. The company now holds an estimated 31 percent of the cloud service market, which puts them firmly in the lead. However, Microsoft has been making great progress with Azure (launched in 2010), and Google began competing directly with them both when they launched Google Compute Engine (their Amazon EC2 equivalent) in late 2013.
In this article we’re going to take a close look at how these three compare in terms of geographical coverage, something bound to be an important factor for many people and businesses considering which one to use.
It’s been a couple of months since we released our new documentation site. We said it was a work in progress, and you might have noticed that it is. Since a lot of changes and additions have been made to the site since its release, we figured it was about time we gave you an update on what’s new. These are no giant leaps for mankind, but big steps in the process of improving usability and content.
Next week, we are attending Cloud Expo Europe Frankfurt. The event takes place on November 23–24, and our CEO Magnus Hult is one of the presenters.
The hosting industry moves fast and leaves no prisoners behind. We work hard to make sure that our customers, a great mix of hosting companies and telcos, can continue to offer cutting-edge hosting services to their end users. As you may know, we recently released Atomia 16.9, a brand new version of our hosting and billing software with powerful new features and improvements.
We just wanted to let you know that we have now updated Atomia.cloud to reflect some of the cool new cloud-related features in Atomia 16.9, and in the process completely updated the site’s design language to match the rest of Atomia.com.
We recently added default support for CloudLinux to our hosting software and thought you might like to learn some more about the company behind it. Hence, this Q&A with Igor Seletskiy, the founder and CEO of CloudLinux. He’s an industry insider, so we also asked him some more general questions to get his take on the state of the hosting industry.
The web hosting industry is thriving. Server infrastructure is better and more affordable than ever before and the market keeps growing. This also means there is a lot of competition out there, so if you’re running a hosting business you’ll want to maximize your chances of long-term success. One way is to aim for a global audience, and another is to minimize the resources you need for day-to-day operations.
Sometimes it’s easy to miss progress that is slow but steady. One of the more prominent examples of this is the field of technology. We get used to advancements so quickly. Just think about it; we already take for granted that we’re walking around with tiny, highly capable computers in our pockets, connected to a worldwide network of information and services that we can access from anywhere, at any time. Science fiction has turned into science fact.
The hosting industry is obviously tied directly to the success and evolution of the Internet and its user base. We are, however, entering an inflection point of what kind of cloud services are viable to provide. The limits are disappearing.
We are happy to announce the launch of our new documentation site, learn.atomia.com. Here we have collected all of our documentation in one neat package, and in the process made some significant changes to how it’s presented and organized. Read on to learn what’s new, and what’s coming!
