singlehop cloudSingleHop is a dedicated server and cloud hosting provider offering scalable, on-demand infrastructure services to both end-users and resellers primarily under monthly contracts. The company recently launched Hosted Cloud Apps to simplify deployment and management of applications on virtual machines in the cloud.

Hosted Cloud Apps is built on technology from Standing Cloud, provider of cloud marketplace and management solutions for IaaS. The solution provides a marketplace of more than 100 applications, software, development tools and deployment options, fully pre-configured to run instantly and reliably on the SingleHop infrastructure. With the help of automated application lifecycle management features like monitoring, scaling, back-ups, upgrades, auto-restore will be available to the customer once their application is deployed in the cloud.

Standing Clouds application catalogue includes more than 100 open-source and commercial applications. The company's platform supports multiple programming languages, including Rails, PHP, Java and Python, and a wide range of cloud service providers and orchestration software systems. According to Zak Boca, CEO of SingleHop, the advantage of using Hosted Cloud Apps is that the customers can have complete ownership of data and at the same time sense the simplicity of SaaS like.

"Making it easy to launch and run fully configured versions of popular applications, and manage them directly through our LEAP Portal is something our customers have been asking for, and Standing Cloud made it easy for us,” said Zak Boca, CEO of SingleHop. “We were able to integrate the marketplace seamlessly into our console and infrastructure, and customize it with our own look-and-feel to provide a user experience that is point-click simple."

SingleHop was established in 2006 and makes its home in Chicago, IL. The company claims that It has customers in 114 countries, three strategically located data centres and over 12,000 servers online. The areas in which the company is dealing are automatic server deployment, remote management and facilitating BYOD.
