NEUTRAUBLING, Germany, January 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Verio's new Linux-based shared hosting solution is now available. The highlight of this new product is that users receive access to SimpleScripts and with itto the latest web applications. Verio  offers four different versions of this hosting solution featuring total monthly rental fees ranging from GBP 6.90 to 34.58 (gross price).

This new shared hosting solution runs under Red Hat Enterprise Linux and is targeted at freelancers and small businesses who want to operate a professional business website. The solution, which replaces Verio's current FreeBSD-based solution, is up to 15 percent less expensive than Unix hosting.

The new Verio products include user options for numerous web applications that are provided in the control panel of the customer account. They can be installed easily by the user with a single click; no downloading or configuration is required. For example, this includes content management systems, weblogs, forums, wikis, and photo galleries.

Verio's Linux Starter version currently enables the following SimpleScripts OneClick Applications to be installed and used: the Lazarus guest book, Gregarius RSS reader, the Pligg social networking platform, or the interactive WebCalendar.

The pro version of Linux Commerce currently includes the following applications and more additionally: the e-commerce applications CubeCart, Zen Cart, OpenCart, and TomatoCart; the vtiger CRM solution; the newsletter tools phpList and poMMo; and the photo galleries Coppermine, Zenphoto, Piwigo, Pixelpost, and 4images.

In addition to the SimpleScripts OneClick Applications, there are other software applications and tools available that are able to be launched via the control panel. For example, this includes a file manager, phpMyAdmin, MySQL Administration, or, with the largest account, the popular Typo3 content management system.

Verio offers four versions of this hosting solution. Overview of product range, central features, and prices:

  • Linux Starter: 1 GB disk space, 50 GB data transfer per month, 50 e-mail accounts, one MySQL database, GBP 6.90 (monthly rental fee incl. VAT with one-year contract)
  • Linux Designer: 10 GB disk space, 250 GB data transfer per month, 250 e-mail accounts, two MySQL databases, GBP 15.49 (monthly rental fee incl. VAT with one-year contract)
  • Linux Business: 20 GB disk space, 500 GB date transfer per month, 500 e-mail accounts, five MySQL databases, GBP 26.25 (monthly rental fee incl. VAT with one-year contract)
  • Linux Commerce: 50 GB disk space, data transfer without calculation, 1,000 email accounts, ten MySQL databases, GBP 34.58 (monthly rental fee incl. VAT with one-year contract)

There is no setup fee involved for Verio customers who want to switch to Linux. This also applies to new customers looking to switch providers.

Ingo Bümmerstede, Hosting Group & Customer Service Manager at Verio: "We're fully convinced that our new range is especially attractive due to the excellent value it represents. Users need to consider one thing in particular when deciding on a web hosting contract: In addition to price, it is necessary to carefully review the range of the features on offer. This applies not only to the basic service features like available disk space or maximum data transfer per month, but also to the number and attractiveness of software solutions, which should be easy to install. Only by doing so the customer will be able to save time and money over the long term. With the integration of SimpleScripts, we've created a range of extremely attractive hosting packages for our users."

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tony Shan, Chief Architect at CTS, will explore the synergy of Big Data and IoT. First he will take a closer look at the Internet of Things and Big Data individually, in terms of what, which, why, where, when, who, how and how much. Then he will explore the relationship between IoT and Big Data. Specifically, he will drill down to how the 4Vs aspects intersect with IoT: Volume, Variety, Velocity and Value. In turn, Tony will analyze how the key components of IoT influence Big Data: Device, Connectivity, Context, and Intelligence. He will dive deep to the matrix...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Building actually breathes - immediately flagging overheating in a closet or over cooling in unoccupied ho...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying about any lock-in fears. In fact by having standard APIs for IaaS would help PaaS expl...
Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated and cloud solutions through hybrid hosting – a sustainable solution for the data required to manage I...
Apps and devices shouldn't stop working when there's limited or no network connectivity. Learn how to bring data stored in a cloud database to the edge of the network (and back again) whenever an Internet connection is available. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate at IBM Cloud Data Services, will demonstrate techniques for replicating cloud databases with devices in order to build offline-first mobile or Internet of Things (IoT) apps that can provide a better, faster user experience, both offline and online. The focus of this talk will be on IBM Cloudant, Apa...
Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...
