Lansing-based web-hosting giant
has unveiled a new product feature that will give its customers greater control over their own IT destinies.
Called Storm Bare Metal
, the new technology does two things, says Travis Stoliker, director of marketing.
First, it creates an automated system that allows Liquid Web customers to make changes to their own server accounts – such as how much server space they need at any given time – without going through a technician.
Second, it allows customers to create their own personalized server configurations, depending on their IT needs.
“There are several things that led us in this direction,” Stoliker says. “First would be customer demand; the next would be efficiency. Now, we have this provision server that can automatically set up new servers; before, it would take the five to 10 people on our team to do that.”
Liquid Web, Inc. is a web hosting company founded in 1997. It now has more than 20,000 clients in 120 countries.
