“We’re committed to operating our data centers and facilities at a level that meets or exceeds the highest industry and regulatory standards,” said Steve Kinman, vice president of customer relations for SoftLayer in a report. “We’re proud to be one of the first in the hosting industry to complete a SSAE 16 review, assuring our customers that they can count on us for best practices in all that we do.”

According to the press release, the independent auditing firm Weave and web hosting provider SoftLayer’s data center in a SOC 1 report performed the audit.

And we’ve created an easy-to-use tool in our customer portal so customers can e-sign the SSAE 16 non-disclosure agreement and immediately access the verification they need.”

According to the press release, the SOC 1 was created with the use of wide-ranging methods incorporating reviews of relative SoftLayer web hosting service associates. The evaluation incorporated a full assessment of operations and customer service, risk assessment supervising, development and information technology organization as well as human resource.

Greatresponder.com – 2011-07-03 – StratoGen web hosting company and data center operator few days ago reported about 82% growth of private cloud web hosting deployments in the 2nd quarter as companies considered on moving their whole IT infrastructure to the private cloud web hosting solutions. Despite the recent noticeable outages of several well known cloud web hosting providers, IT managers are pushing forward with ever more ambitious migration projects.

Mr. Mark Lewis, Business Development Manager said “Business confidence in the cloud web hosting technology so far exceeded all expectations in recent quarter. We have seen many companies and organizations are taking on complex cloud migration projects in a bid to improve service levels, reliability and performance. In a enough short time most of IT managers have embraced the cloud concept and are now looking to virtualize their entire legacy infrastructure.”

Cloud web hosting is set to account for 80% of all web hosting by 2020 year, according to well known web hosting industry experts. However, the risk to IT departments is pretty big and growing as a multitude of hosting companies build clouds with lack of experience, selling into a market with no track record.

“We are delighted to see these growth figures, and there is no doubt now that cloud has had a breakthrough year in 2011. However, there continues to be a lack of transparency amongst cloud providers which makes selecting the right hosting company extremely difficult. In particular, very few publish specifications of their platform or the service levels they have achieved. If organisations are moving their entire IT function to the cloud then these are questions which need to be answered” commented David Elliott, Technical Director.

StratoGen web hosting company provide cloud hosting environments in the form of virtual data centres, which facilitate private cloud deployments. Within each unique virtual data center organisations can easily create and deploy virtual machines, stand alone routed networks and firewalls using a powerful web based portal or API.
