Solar VPS Upcoming Product Announcement

Under Construction

Under Construction

Over the past few months, we have been feverishly working to improve our customer experience. Through making our Linux and Windows Cloud Hosting MGMT suite, the SolarSystem, easier to navigate, to installing and improving upon our SolarSystem A.I. one-click installer of over 260 web apps, to constantly updating our Windows and Linux OS versions to the most current OS’s, we have all been mad at work improving the SolarSystem. In this vein, we have something brewing which will be announced in the next few days. At the moment we can’t say exactly what we are about to release to our Windows and Linux Cloud Hosting consumers, however we can say it is going to make using the SolarSystem easier than eating piece of your grandma’s apple pie.

Once the announcement is made, this new feature will be available for public use. More importantly, we will be opening this feature up to our consumers so they can get directly involved with our services. Here at Solar VPS we believe the more information and interaction our consumers have with us, the better. We have designed this new feature to be exactly that. Easy information and great interaction.

Stay tuned for the announcement next week!

Bandwidth Utilization in the SolarSystem

What is Bandwidth and How Does it effect my SolarSystem Cloud VPS?

Bandwidth

Bandwidth Speeds in the SolarSystem

Normally we use this space to blog about a variety of topics which server as a portal for information and knowledge. We normally use this space to explain Cloud hosting concepts and ideas so you, as the end user, have a greater understanding of the SolarSystem solution you are either currently using or looking into. However, in this blog post, we want to answer a question which was recently posed to us via Yahoo! Answers. The question asked, which comes from the European continent, was:

“I was browsing SolarVPS’s VPS plans, and they allow you to customize. There is an option of 1TB through 8TB bandwidth, and I’m not sure if that’s the speed, and if that’s the limited amount per month that you are allowed to use. Please only answer if your sure, I don’t want any misleading thoughts.”

Due to this, we want to take the time to answer the following questions regarding SolarSystem bandwidth utilization: What is bandwidth in terms of my Linux or Windows Cloud VPS? How much bandwidth can I utilize per month per Cloud VPS? What is our network bandwidth transfer rate? And finally, how much does additional bandwidth cost in the SolarSystem? Continue
