Kyup container cloud launches data centers in Europe and Asia Pacific, bolstering its global presence

Kyup (, the next-gen cloud hosting provider, today announced the launch of two new data center locations in Europe and in the Asia Pacific region. This announcement comes on the heels of the public availability of Kyup’s secure container platform, which came to market in March.

The announcement of the new datacenters has been highly anticipated by Kyup clients, who will now be able to choose from the three server locations the one closest to their users for their web projects. The added benefit of low latency thanks to the geographical proximity paired with Kyup’s key features such as 5secs cloud server provisioning, auto scaling with no downtime, reliable backup, technical support, and a low pay-per-use cost makes their offering unmatched in the cloud hosting industry.

“Our new locations and facilities were strategically chosen to offer extremely good connectivity, enterprise-class redundancy and high-end security.” said Tenko Nikolov, Kyup Founder and CEO, “This data center expansion will allow Kyup to provide existing and future customers with greater access to the European and Asian markets and offer our scalable container cloud infrastructure to the growing tech and startup communities in both these regions.”

European Data Center, Amsterdam:

The new data center in Amsterdam comes as a direct response to multiple requests by Kyup’s customers for an European server location. Stricter EU regulations often make it difficult for companies’ data to be moved outside the continent, hence more European clients prefer to host their data locally. The shortage of affordable scalable local cloud hosting providers has pushed companies to find hosting in other regions regardless of the difficulty – until now.

Kyup’s Amsterdam expansion is strategically geo located in the center of the continent, which ensures proximity to all European countries, as well as access to a wide range of network providers across the rest of the European continent. Amsterdam is one of the biggest tech hubs in Europe, providing exceptional connectivity from each country in Europe and the rest of the world. The facility is top tier, with highly automated security and environmental monitoring.

Asia Pacific Data Center, Singapore:

The Singapore data center location will meet the rising demand of IT services and affordable, scalable cloud hosting in Asia while allowing clients to tap into the Australian and New Zealand tech scenes in tandem. Again, it is a best-practices-based facility, maintaining multiple power feeds, fiber links, dedicated generators, and battery backup built from industry-leading hardware and equipment, ensuring the highest level of performance, reliability, and interoperability with 24×7 on-site security and rigorous controls.

This release is one of many exciting announcements to come from Kyup within the first half of the year, as the company is expected to roll out several key new features such as Private Networking, Automatic migration from other cloud hosting providers, native Docker support on LXC containers and 1-click installs for even more softwares in the future.

About Kyup

The company offers secure production-ready Linux containers with SSD storage to provide users with a resource-efficient, instantly-scalable and highly-redundant cloud hosting platform for their apps and web projects. Kyup was started by the founders of SiteGround (, who are a leader in the web hosting market with nearly 10 years of experience in the industry, it is headquartered in Sofia, Bulgaria and for now remains privately held.

For private cloud customers, Microsoft rolls new Azure Stack bundle

Microsoft is rolling up a number of its cloud operating-system components into a new Azure Stack offering for hosting providers and businesses for running in customers’ datacenters.


Azure Stack is a combination of Windows Server 2016, Azure Pack and Azure Service Fabric. Azure Pack is a set of Azure features that Microsoft makes available to its hosting providers and larger business users as a download that can run on top of Windows Server and Systems Center. Service Fabric is the new infrastructure technology Microsoft is building into Azure and Windows Server that will enable applications to be developed, deployed and managed in microservice form.

In many ways, Azure Stack is similar to an updated version of the operating system that Microsoft makes available on its Cloud Platform System (CPS) cloud-in-a-box appliances.

“With CPS, we took Hyper-V and Azure Pack and did all the heavy lifting to marry it with hardware,” said Mike Schutz, General Manager of Microsoft’s Cloud Platform Product Marketing. “With Azure Stack, we took our experience with us doing this ourselves and will deliver it on the hardware of customers’ choice.”

Azure Stack includes both Windows Server and Azure capabilities. Hyper-V and the Scale Out File server, as well as new storage and networking technologies coming in Windows Server 2016 are examples of Windows Server technologies in Azure Stack. From the Azure side, Azure Stack includes the updated Azure portal (formerly codenamed Ibiza) and infrastructure- as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) technologies such as the Azure Resource Manager and Azure Resource Providers.

Dedicated Servers on PC will host Call of Duty Black Ops 3

The PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops III will get dedicated servers, developer Treyarch has confirmed. Posting on Twitter, Treyarch director of development Cesar ‘pcdev’ Stastny said that the PC version of the game will “use 100% dedicated servers for all ranked matches.”

This should come as little surprise, given that that Treyarch brought dedicated servers in for 2010’s Call of Duty: Black Ops, as well as for the sequel Black Ops 2. Dedicated servers were also brought in for Call of Duty: Ghosts on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the last-generation consoles. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 also had dedicated servers, but they were unranked, which meant that the server administrator controlled all unlocks.

Stastny also confirmed that the game will ship with an adjustable field of view slider, as has been the case with previous Black Ops titles.

If the news of dedicated ranked servers has piqued your interest in picking up a PC version of the game, you may want to check out the minimum system requirements listed by Treyarch. The multiplayer mode in Black Ops 3 will have wall running similar to that of Titanfall and “Specialist” characters which possess unique weapons and abilities.
