Welcome to the eRacks Hosting News & Blog!

eRacks Open Source Systems will soon be launching online purchase of our dedicated hosting and colocation services. Our launch date is currently Nov 2nd, 2007.

For many years, we have offered hosting and colocation to our select customers.

We are now formalizing our offerings, and launching an e-commerce website to make our hosting services available to the general public, and a wider audience.

We offer colocation and dedicated hosting in multiple tier-1 triple-backed-up colo facilities in the top NOC locations in both San Jose and Fremont.

All servers used at the facilities are built and tested by our top-notch technicians at eRacks Open Source Systems.

We are also very virtualization-savvy, with extensive recent experience developing a web-based virtualization infrastruture for Libre Hosting (a virtual hosting company) based on the Open Source KVM (Kernel Virtual Machine), which is built into the Linux kernel, and supported by the company Qumranet, which is well-funded by various venture partners.

For example, we just released a 16-core 1U server: eRacks/X4X4: Quad quad-core Xeon, which is perfect for virtualization applications, taking up only 1U of rackspace.

Stay tuned for further announcements, and you are invited to inquire today about being one of the first customers to our new San Jose or Fremont facilities – email us today at info@erackshosting.com!
