Apr 04, 2012 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) --
Zunicore, the public cloud division of global IT hosting company PEER 1 Hosting, announces today that it has registered 3700 businesses just four months after its official launch in November 2011. Zunicore, a professional-grade cloud service, offers businesses an innovative public cloud with enterprise-level compute power and reliability, packaged for project-sized consumption.
Greg Rusu, General Manager of Zunicore, said: "We are growing at an unprecedented speed compared to some of our competitors. We launched the service in just 120 days and have very successfully sustained it through free sign-ups and rapid feature releases. We're operating in a very competitive space and are constantly innovating to outshine our competitors."
Douglas Cebik, Director of Business Development at Sorenson Media, a Zunicore customer, says: "With Zunicore we're not locked into pre-set hardware configurations as with other cloud providers. We can define the most optimal CPU, memory and IO configurations for a given video encode job and even modify these configurations in real-time. This allows us to encode videos faster, and more cost effectively, without sacrificing our industry leading video quality."
Zunicore's solution allows professional firms to instantly deploy a feature-rich and optimised cloud infrastructure and automatically scale computing resources to support their projects and programs within an easy-to-use interface. A fully user-controlled environment including customisable resource pools allows users to increase or decrease the size of their pool, or add virtual machines based on their business needs.
Zunicore Cloud Hosting is available on the Zunicore website, where users can sign up for a free 30-day trial. For more information and to purchase Zunicore Cloud Hosting, please visit: www.zunicore.com
