(Page 1 of 4 )
LeaseWeb Hosting is a Netherlands-based Web hosting provider that focuses on the professional ISP and specializes in affordable dedicated and collocated hosting. It is reputed to be the fastest growing web host in the world. In this article, we'll find out why.
The company was launched in 1997 and has never looked back. It is focused on staying on par with the latest technological developments and continuously offers up to the minute, broad spectrum Internet services. The advanced products and services are offered by the company at very competitive rates.
Since 1997 LeaseWeb has hosted over 5000 servers and is still growing at a fast pace. This is why the company was voted the fastest growing web hosting company in the world by Hostreview.com.
Lease Web offers UPS and streaming with technical support and networks through data centers in Amsterdam. The bandwidth provided is more than 150 gigabytes per second. The company is present via Internet exchanges in Amsterdam, Brussels, London, Frankfurt, New York, Vienna, Stockholm, Warsaw, Zurich, Prague and Madrid.
Con Zwinkels, the Managing Director of LeaseWeb, says that over the last few years, the company has doubled the capacity of their hosting network, doubled the number of employees and still has enough space for more employment, which is definitely the sign of an e-business with growth at a lightning pace.
The reason for the company's growth, according to Zwinkels, is LeaseWeb's focus on virtualization. Virtualization helps the company to allocate server space to customers in a flexible manner and form new servers quickly and effectively. LeaseWeb offers Windows and Linux packages to their clients and have both a Windows express server and Linux express server. They expect to speed up the process of forming more servers using virtualization.
With efficiency comes demand; LeaseWeb's customers are on the increase and demand greater bandwidth. The company has addressed supplying the demand by restructuring its global hosting network. It has acquired two Cisco Carrier Routing System 1s (CRS-1s) which will increase its bandwidth capacity to 1900 gigabytes per second, or 1.9 terabytes. This, along with their new network architecture, means that they are all geared up to meet growth in Internet traffic. They assure their customers that in the next few years the bandwidth growth potential of LeaseWeb is on the increase. LeaseWeb is able to scale bandwidth via telecom carriers and Internet exchanges. At present the available capacity for customers is 160 gigabytes per second, but the philosophy of LeaseWeb is to always maintain twice as much capacity as customers are consuming.
The other customer-focused expansion that LeaseWeb is developing is customer support. LeaseWeb is the number one web hosting company in the Netherlands, and their global customer base is on the increase. LeaseWeb has customers in the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Denmark, Spain, Poland, Russia, Turkey and other countries. Some customers have businesses that work 24/7 and require LeaseWeb's support 24/7. The company trains their staff to give optimum customer satisfaction and refine customer friendliness.
LeaseWeb has addressed the environmental concerns and carbon neutral demands of many of its clients; it has put 500 racks into use at once in the new carrier-independent and carbon-neutral data center, Evoswitch. These are low-emissions, low-energy-consuming cabinets.
LeaseWeb adapts flexibly to the client's growing businesses and has the expertise to advise the client to take charge of their long-term technology strategy with a sociable hosting environment ensuring long term continuity and quality.
