The Planet, a global hosted services provider, is offering solution providers the ability to sell cloud-based virtual server architectures to smaller customers. According to this report on Channel Web, The Planet Server Cloud provides a combination of Intel Nehalem-based Dell servers, Oracle-Sun storage, and Cisco and Juniper networking, with virtualization provided by the Canonical Ubuntu Server's KVM hypervisor.


The Planet is offering channel partners the ability to sell cloud-based virtual server architectures.

"The result is a cloud-based, virtual server offering which helps smaller business and Web-based businesses gain access to consistent high-performance and dedicated virtual resources, said Carl Meadows, senior product manager for cloud services at The Planet.

"The Planet Server Cloud charges a single monthly fee for its hosted virtual servers on a per-virtual CPU basis which includes 1 TB of storage per server as well as the bandwidth. The virtual server is based on a "slice" of an Intel Nehalem 5520 processor in the company's Dell servers.

"The storage sits on a SAN based on the Oracle-Sun 7400 "Amber Road" series storage array. Meadows said the Amber Road features a combination of the open-source ZFS file system and an excellent price-performance ratio, making it suitable for use in virtual environments."
