Virtuozzo, a provider of integrated container, virtual machine, and software-defined storage technology, today announced a partnership with Rebel.com that demonstrates how companies can improve economies of scale while delivering more value to customers by adding Virtuozzo 7 to their Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2) environments.

Rebel.com, an Ottawa, Canada-based hosting solutions provider, migrated its infrastructure to Amazon EC2 several years ago. But as the company’s business grew, it needed a way to increase the size of its Amazon EC2 instances without impacting their performance. By leveraging Virtuozzo 7 on top of them, the company was able to improve server performance by 4X.

Virtuozzo provides the only nested virtualization technology that cuts Amazon EC2 instances into smaller VPSs with no performance impact. Using Virtuozzo 7 and Amazon EC2 together enables companies to:

  • Gain financial agility by reducing operational expenses
  • Maintain competitively-priced VPS service offerings
  • Scale on demand for unexpected workload increases
  • Have better performance from large EC2 instances

"Virtuozzo is dedicated to helping our customers realize their greatest potential and a big part of that is supporting them as they grow their business," said George Karidis, chief executive officer at Virtuozzo. "We are seeing a lot of customers move to a cloud infrastructure like AWS as a way to reduce operating costs and gain greater scalability. As their EC2 instances grow, they need a way to increase performance, and Virtuozzo is happy to offer an innovative solution to address this challenge."
