NEW YORK, Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Managed technology and hosting provider Newtek Business Services, Inc., NASDAQ: NEWT, The Small Business Authority®, today announced the release of a new low-cost, high-performance computing solutions designed for today's small-business IT demands. The solutions include a new line of dedicated server configurations, which feature Intel® Xeon® Quad Core, Dual-Quad Core, and Dual-Hex Core processors, and an optional Managed Server Care Bundle, which relieves small businesses and their IT managers from most of the server management responsibilities.
Barry Sloane, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Newtek Business Services said, "As small-business web and IT demands evolve, it is imperative that our hosted technology solutions evolve with it. Our new server solutions are just one example of how we continue to provide small-business clients with increased computing power and support while simultaneously decreasing cost."
"With Newtek's Managed Server Care Bundle, which is now available on both new and existing dedicated servers, as well as on its Cloud Virtual Private Server offering, customers receive the following services as part of one, simple option: server monitoring, nightly backups, a hardware firewall, monthly patch and fix management, McAffee antivirus software, Diskeeper software, and up to three hours per month of extended server support. Extended support, in essence, provides each customer with its own server operations department that can address needs beyond the normal scope of support, which includes, but is not limited to, installing and configuring custom software or trouble-shooting application issues not related to the hosting service."
Full details of Newtek's new offerings can be found on the company's managed technology website.
