At Fluid Hosting, we are constantly looking forward to improving our services to you. And at this time, we are proud to announce you our newest plans (our biggest and most cost effective plan to date) as well as other service improvements.

A. Introducing Our New Plans
There are 4 new exciting plans with CentOS 4.2 (32 bit), CentOS 4.0 x64 (64 bit), and Windows 2003 Standard x64 (64 bit). Operating Systems. Price start at $40/month after 20% yearly prepayment discount. For details about our new plans, please visit http://www.fluidhosting.com/vps/pricing.php.

The new plans are as follow:

Basic Plan: 512 MB guaranteed SLM memory, 25 GB disk space, and 500 GB monthly transfer.
Enhanced Plan: 1024 MB guaranteed SLM memory, 50 GB disk space, and 750 GB monthly transfer.
Advanced Plan: 1536 MB guaranteed SLM memory, 80 GB disk space, and 1100 GB monthly transfer.
Premium Plan: 2048 MB guaranteed SLM memory, 120 GB disk space, and 1500 GB monthly transfer.

At this moment, CentOS 3.5 and CentOS 4.2 VPS customers can be upgraded with ease (you will need to contact us to do the upgrade). There is no upgrade options for RedHat 9 VPS. Windows VPS customers should be able to do the upgrade from the control panel. And of course, as usual, we will not force you to switch to the new plans.

In the near future, we will make available CentOS 5 (32 bit and 64 bit) plans. Please contact sales [at] fluidhosting.com for availability.

B. Service Improvements
To improve your VPS experience, we have been upgrading our hardware nodes and migrating your VPS to the new nodes. Our newest hardware nodes have the following specs:
- Dell Enterprise PowerEdge 2950
- Dual Intel Clovertown E5345-E5355 (8 cores with a total of 18.64 - 21.28 GHz computing power)
- 32 GB of ECC Registered memory, so your VPS will spend (or avoid) using the swap memory!
- multiple drives in RAID10 backed by hardware RAID controllers, to guarantee fast disk I/O

In addition, we have implemented advanced backup system using R1Soft CDP (Continuous Data Protection). Our 4.8 TB RAID10 (upgradeable to 18 TB) dedicated backup node is currently doing backup of your VPS multiple times a day (every 4 hours for Linux/CentOS VPS and every 8 hours for Windows VPS) ensuring you access to your most recent data.

Last, but not least, all of these improvements are offered to you at no additional cost. In fact, with the introduction of our new plans, we have managed to even lower our VPS pricing, giving you, our valued customers, the "best bang for the buck".

We are constantly looking forward to improving our service to you and your overall VPS experience. If you have any inputs, suggestions, and/or feedbacks, feel free to send them to support [at]fluidhosting.com.

Enjoy the service improvements!
