Tech City software specialist Decibel hits cloud high notes with iomart Hosting

Decibel customers get 'burstable' hosting resource for optimum website performance

Decibel Technology, a leading software specialist for web development and website management, has partnered with iomart Hosting to provide website owners with a secure and resilient hosting platform, with extra value 'pay what you use' services, all at the click of a button.

Built on a highly scalable cloud infrastructure from iomart Hosting, one of the UK's leading providers of bespoke cloud and managed hosting services, Decibel Technology's new managed service gives businesses of all sizes simple 'point and click' provisioning of a hosting account and are billed only for what resource they have used and when. The managed hosting service also provides 'burstable' resource on demand for occasions when extra power is needed, for example at peak holiday booking times or the Christmas retail season. Decibel hosting is not only economically advantageous but also mitigates the risk of not having bought enough resource, which can often reduce website performance.

Decibel's hosting package has been designed specifically to address the industry trend of website owners having to forecast the amount of resource required to run their websites and pay for it, irrespective of whether the capacity is used or not.

"Decibel's managed hosting is designed simply to put our customers in full control of their website, to ensure it is operating at all times at optimum performance," said Ben Harris, CEO, Decibel Technology. "Hosting is often expensive, inflexible and complicated, so we designed a managed service package that removes static costs, gives customers point and click provisioning and provides burstable resource when they need it, in real-time. iomart Hosting is a best in class provider and a natural delivery partner for Decibel Technology clients."

The Decibel Technology hosting solution through iomart Hosting is a highly resilient, secure and scalable solution run on an industry leading VMware platform. Customers are provided with 24/7 monitoring and management and a 100% uptime Service Level Agreement (SLA). Decibel Technology provides clients with dedicated monitoring, charts of server usage and email updates of any minor or significant changes.

Sarah Haran, managing director of iomart Hosting, said: "iomart Hosting has a long history of supporting innovative companies in the software and applications market and we're delighted that Decibel Technology has turned to us to provide the highly scalable cloud infrastructure they need to give their clients secure yet affordable hosting."

iomart Hosting is part of AIM-listed iomart Group plc which has seven data centre locations across the UK. Among its clients are some of the leading digital and creative agencies in the UK.
