Ensim Announces Scalable, Professional Grade Solution for Mass-Shared Hosting [3rd November 2003]

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov 3, 2003 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Ensim Corporation, the global leader in hosting automation software, today announced the immediate availability of Ensim Extend, a highly scalable, professional grade solution for mass-shared hosting. In conjunction with Ensim WEBppliance Pro for Linux, Ensim Extend enables hosting service providers (HSPs) to seamlessly grow their businesses from one server supporting a few web sites to thousands of servers supporting tens of thousands of domains. With Ensim Extend, HSPs can easily manage the growth of their businesses, efficiently and profitably.

"NeoVerve is growing rapidly, so we need to find ways to expand our customer base without replacing our entire infrastructure," said Kurt Davey, president and CEO of NeoVerve, Inc., a San Diego-based hosting and design firm. "With Ensim Extend, we can streamline many repetitive hosting tasks, saving us time, reducing errors and increasing our profits."

With Ensim Extend, large scale hosters benefit from centralized provisioning, DNS, resource management and IP address management. Small hosters can seamlessly layer Ensim Extend's centralized capabilities on top of their existing Ensim WEBppliance Pro deployments, enabling them to smoothly scale their businesses.

"Since its introduction earlier this year, Ensim WEBppliance Pro has rapidly become the preferred software for professional small scale hosting," said Steve Dauber, vice president of marketing at Ensim Corporation. "With Ensim Extend, we're bringing the same caliber of capabilities to mid and large scale hosts, enabling our customers to seamlessly grow their businesses as they succeed in the market."
