If you haven’t heard about CloudFlare before, their value proposition is simple: they’ll make any website twice as fast and protect it from a broad range of web threats. CloudFlare makes it easy for any site to be as fast and secure as the Internet giants. That fits perfectly in line with what we’re always striving to deliver to our customers.
GreenGeeks excited to announce our partnership with CloudFlare, a web performance and security company.
Today, hundreds of thousands of websites—ranging from individual blogs to e-commerce sites to the websites of Fortune 500 companies to national governments—use CloudFlare to make their sites faster and more secure. We power more than 65 billion monthly page views—more than Amazon, Wikipedia, Twitter, Zynga, AOL, Apple, Bing, eBay, PayPal and Instagram combined—and over 25% of the Internet’s population regularly passes through our network.
Our Ecosite package is pretty amazing because it gives you so many great features like unlimited disk space, bandwidth, and email addresses. But what about our customers who are running more robust systems that need greater RAM, CPU, and process resources? In the past, we have moved these customers up to our VPS hosting packages, which have served them well. But some customers need more resources, but aren’t quite ready to move up to a VPS plan. We decided to launch our Ecosite Premium hosting package for those customers who need greater resources, without any change in the way they manage their site. Ecosite Premium features:
Double the RAM, CPU, and Processes of our Ecosite packages
Fewer customers per server for even greater site performance
Direct access to our nightly backup servers to restore files at any time
We’re always looking to introduce our users to cool gadgets that are also green. We recently came across the Raspberry Pi Computer project. It is a fully functioning computer that starts at only $25.While the specs are very modest, roughly equidistant to a 300MHz Pentium 2, the device is capable of outputting full 1080P blu-ray quality video which makes it great for a home theatre.
The device runs off a very low voltage micro USB power supply, or 4 of those cool USBCell AA batteries we featured earlier, making it incredibly energy efficient. The Raspberry Pi Foundation was formed with the goal of teaching kids around the world how to program with affordable computers. They are a non-profit organization, and each purchase helps them continue to grow. The credit card sized device runs Debian Linux, so this computer is definitely for our true geek clients out there.
