CloudFlare and Parallels to Bring Website Performance and Security to Millions of SMBs

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/04/12 -- CloudFlare, the web performance and security company, and Parallels, a worldwide leader in hosting and cloud service enablement, announced that service providers using Parallels software can now easily activate and resell CloudFlare's services.

"Moving to the cloud allows a business to get cost-effective access to enterprise functionality," said John Zanni, Parallels VP Marketing and Alliances. "We are very happy to see CloudFlare joining the ecosystem of APS Certified applications to bring enterprise-level website performance and security to every website online."

"As a result of our partnership with Parallels, we have been able to bring a number of innovative solutions to our customers," said Celal Ulgen, Chief Marketing Officer at SoftCom, parent company to the popular myhosting.com. "Now that CloudFlare is available in Parallels Automation, we will have another service to further improve our customers' experience."

On average, a website on CloudFlare loads twice as fast, uses 60 percent less bandwidth and is more secure. Hosting providers offering CloudFlare benefit from an additional source of revenue, reduced server load, bandwidth savings and robust denial of service (DDoS) attack protection.

"CloudFlare is so much more than just a content delivery network; the service optimizes web traffic, protects against online attacks, and provides real-time statistics," said Marco Houwen, CEO and co-founder of LuxCloud. "We are thrilled to be adding CloudFlare to our marketplace so that our partners can offer enhanced performance and increased security to their customers."

"The new Parallels Plesk Panel plugin is a great addition that allows for quick and easy deployment of CloudFlare on our shared web hosting, virtual and dedicated servers," said Gerardo Altman, CEO of Velocity Host. "CloudFlare allows us to get more out of every server and network connection in our cloud."

CloudFlare has grown exponentially over the last year. Today, more than 670 million web surfers enjoy a faster and safer Internet experience each month. Partnering with Parallels expands the global reach of CloudFlare's performance and security.

"We are thrilled to work with Parallels and bring website performance and security to their global customer base who serve more than 10 million SMBs in 130 countries," said Matthew Prince, co-founder and CEO of CloudFlare. "This integration enables SMBs to make more money and reduce operating costs."

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds.

"We work in the area of Big Data analytics and Big Data analytics is a very crowded space - you have Hadoop, ETL, warehousing, visualization and there's a lot of effort trying to get these tools to talk to each other," explained Mukund Deshpande, head of the Analytics practice at Accelerite, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
When people aren’t talking about VMs and containers, they’re talking about serverless architecture. Serverless is about no maintenance. It means you are not worried about low-level infrastructural and operational details. An event-driven serverless platform is a great use case for IoT.
