ALT TAG HERENASSAU, The Bahamas, April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Secure Hosting, the only PCI DSS Compliant Hosting provider in the Caribbean and Latin America, has joined forces with VMWare, the industry’s leading virtualization provider. The partnership means that Secure Hosting has achieved certification on both the Solution Provider and Service Provider levels with VMWare.

VMWare provides server virtualization for hosting providers and companies looking to improve processing power, reduce maintenance times and revolutionize the reliability of their systems. Virtualization is a revolutionary technology that maximizes a processor’s abilities by allowing multiple applications to be run at one time by the same processor. This technology enables Secure Hosting to keep costs down while providing fully-redundant, enterprise grade PCI-Compliant secure cloud hosting services with two factor authentication and VPN connection, as well as clustered hosting with 24/7 monitoring and support.

“With this added efficiency, we can deliver anything from desktop virtualization to business-critical applications for financial institutions,” said Richard Douglas, founder and CTO of Secure Hosting (www.securehost.com).

Secure Hosting recently opened a data centre in Freeport, The Bahamas that offers offshore hosting to clients around the world. The new location is the company’s third data centre in the Caribbean. Between the three locations, along with the new partnership with VMWare, Secure Hosting is able to maintain 100 percent uptime. Each centre has secure dedicated servers with redundant cooling, UPS and their own backup generators.

“Our servers use virtualization, which helps keep them energy efficient and improves their processing power and reliability. If we need to work on part of our clients’ network of servers, we can offload the processing to another server without taking any applications offline,” said Douglas.
