SingleHop Announces 'Supercharged Server-Line' Pre-Launch Offer, Representing the Future of Dedicated Servers

CHICAGO, July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- SingleHop, a Chicago managed hosting provider, today announced that it is accepting pre-orders for its up-and- coming Supercharged Server-line, which they believe represents the future of dedicated servers. These servers are designed to handle the ever increasing power requirements of the evolving Internet. SingleHop customers can pre- order the first of these new servers for $199; the regular price will be $279. The servers will be available on August 1, 2008.

"Websites and the software they run are requiring more and more memory and resources to function properly, and users are demanding a faster, more-real- time experience. We are releasing this new server to launch the line that will ensure our customers can take advantage of the power of the online world," said Zak Boca, President & CEO of SingleHop.

The first server in the Supercharged line will be the popular Intel Xeon 5410 Harpertown. Complete with a 250 GB hard drive, 6 GB of RAM, 5 TB of Bandwidth and SingleHop's cornerstone LEAP customer portal, which offers users a Webtop interface to manage their dedicated servers, the Supercharged series servers will be available as a pre-launch special offering clients large savings, and a lot of power.

"The Harpertown 5410 Xeon server is one of Intel's finest quad-core CPU's. We added 6 GB of RAM because RAM is where almost every large website bottlenecks first. We believe that a certain level of RAM is needed for modern web applications to function, which is why we recently announced that we will be upgrading ALL of our existing customer servers to 2GB of RAM, at no cost to the clients," adds Boca.

The pre-order works like this: Customers visit SingleHop's website and pre-register. Once the server becomes available on August 1, 2008, everyone who pre-registered will receive a special link to purchase the server for $199. The link will be valid for exactly 24 hours. At the same time, and going forward, SingleHop will offer the Harpertown servers at their normal retail price ($279 per month) in the Supercharged configuration. The pre-launch special is first come, first serve.

Earlier last week SingleHop also expanded their PARAMOUNT series of fully managed servers by adding two new Xeon Clovertown 5310 configurations. "The success of our PARAMOUNT series has shown a big demand for fully managed services by our clients," continued Zak, "While the Supercharged series of servers is priced as unmanaged, clients will be given the opportunity to utilize our flexible management services, which enables the client to simply pay for the managed services that they require, or take it unmanaged at the list price."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
