Media Temple Upgrades Its Managed VPS Hosting Solution To Fully Managed

Premium Web Hosting Company Also Updates Award-Winning CloudTech™ Technical Support Service

 LOS ANGELES – September 24, 2014Media Temple, a Los Angeles-based company providing premium web hosting and cloud services to web developers, designers, digital entrepreneurs and creative agencies, today announced it has launched the next iteration of its Managed VPS Hosting (formerly called “Managed Hosting”). The company’s updated Managed VPS Hosting now comes with new features and still includes Media Temple’s white glove technical customer service, CloudTech™, which also received a makeover.

By revamping its managed VPS hosting offering, Media Temple is further focusing on the delivery of fully managed hosting solutions by providing customers with: OS and application updates; near real-time performance and daily security monitoring; as well automated daily disaster recovery backups. In addition, users can choose from seven service levels that can be scaled up or down instantly, depending on their needs.  Finally, CloudTech serves as their dedicated personal system administrator (SysAdmin) team, actively managing and protecting their servers 24/7 so they don’t have to. 

“As a customer-first company, we are constantly leveraging our customers’ feedback and analyzing their behavior to address their evolving hosting needs with a premium experience. The CloudTech update exemplifies that approach,” says Brian Kuhn, VP of Product at Media Temple. “Further, by refreshing our managed VPS offering, including valuable changes to backup/disaster recovery features, and combining it with CloudTech’s premium care, we now offer a fully managed hosting solution and built-in SysAdmin team.”

Initially launched in 2013 at HostingCon, the company’s refreshed CloudTech still features the web’s best technical support team, near real-time performance and resources checks, as well as around-the-clock security monitoring, but at a reduced price of $199/month.
