Open Sessions: SaaSification, WordPress, Kubernetes

We are glad to invite you for a set of sessions devoted to the trending topics of modern cloud business. Ready to find out new hosting revenue channels of 2019?

  • SaaSification in Action. Attracting Software Vendors with Easy Transformation

Software vendors got to the point that as-a-service is not just hype but new opportunities for their businesses. That’s why currently we increasingly frequently hear about launching Anything-as-a-Service (XaaS). The transition is in active phase but many ISVs are struggling with technical blockers or lack of expertise on their way to the desired outcome. At this session, we’ll discuss how cloud hosting service providers can ease the transformation for software vendors, thus attracting ISVs as potential clients, building value in own services, and ultimately customer retention.

  • How to Offer Premium WordPress Services for Highly-Loaded Websites

Permanent availability and high performance are among the very key points the companies usually consider when choosing a hosting service. Obviously, no one wants to lose money because of occasional downtime or low performance. To meet the requirements of highly loaded productions you need to supply them with scalable application servers, smart load distribution and database clusterization avoiding a single point of failure. However, the configuration of a reliable WordPress cluster is not a trivial task even for experienced developers and system administrators. During the session, we’ll demonstrate a newly launched WordPress solution for service providers that can be installed in one click. It is packaged as auto-scalable cluster powered by LiteSpeed, MySQL Galera and integration with enterprise CDN. We’ll examine the core benefits of such combination, how it is implemented and in what way this package can be used to attract new high-end customers and grow your hosting business.

  • Easy Launch of Managed Kubernetes Hosting within Own Datacenter

The need to modernize legacy applications led to the growing demand in the production-ready environments for containerized applications. Kubernetes made it possible to develop cloud native microservices or decompose traditional applications making them more technologically advanced. At the same time, orchestration of such workloads brings additional complexity, so companies seek out not only pure hosting but also managed services. This becomes an opportunity for hosting provider to sell value-added options. But lack of integration with Kubernetes technology, necessity to build the clusters from scratch and periodically update them set specific limits or even withdraw these extra hosting business possibilities. During this session, we’ll demonstrate a pre-configured Kubernetes cluster that can be easily installed on top of your own datacenter with full orchestration capabilities. Automated installation, scaling, updates and integrated billing with pay-per-use pricing model make this solution a perfect match for those who want to build managed hosting business offering Kubernetes services.

Join the sessions to get fresh ideas of growing business with cloud services, creating new revenue channels and keeping the pace of arising customers demands.
