About ‘ZCFREE’

At Zunicore, we strive to provide our users an absolutely new experience they would never get  from any other cloud provider.

No one truly believes Zunicore offers them the freedom, control, and flexibility over their cloud resources. We do not force users into a contract with a no-cancellation policy, users are not stuck with vendor lock in, and the only limitation  Zunicore users ever  experience is how creative can they be with their new freedom!

Zunicore is extremely motivated to provide our users a one-of-a-kind experience. We want our users to see for themselves how incredibly easy it is from signing up, ordering a Resource Pool, and provisioning a Virtual Server.

But it is not only the amazing speed of provisioning a new Virtual Server Zunicore wants to showcase, we want our users to stay for the entire show! If we provided users with a much smaller duration for the trial, they would never be truly able to experience the Zunicore cloud, our awesome support response time, our adaptation to feature requests, and our rocketing rise in the Cloud industry.

Zunicore: A Purpose-Built Cloud for Agile Businesse

While cloud computing has shown strong market growth in recent years, it has served a limited set of business customers that could benefit from its one-size-fits-all approach. Many businesses across a diverse range of industries, such as marketing agencies, SMB product and financial services companies, professional services firms, and gaming companies have very specific needs when it comes to the cloud. As such, they have not been able to benefit as much from the cloud’s promise of providing highly scalable, instanton, and cost-effective computing resources to serve a global audience.

For these businesses to gain from the cloud, they require a cloud service offering that allows them to work with their existing people, processes, and technology infrastructure as they deliver services to their own customers over the Web. A new type of cloud service has emerged that provides businesses with the four critical elements they seek today: control, flexibility, reliability, and cost efficiency. This new type of cloud, professional-grade cloud, has been developed specifically for businesses with unique and changing technology requirements as they bring varying types of campaigns to the Web.

Web Proximity

Pod location vs. Physical location

Cloud computing is a multibillion dollar global industry with growing monopolistic competition. Every hosting company has their own unique attributes that set them apart from the others. Like any smart consumer, you want to do your research and determine which features will best suit you and/or your company’s needs. And by research I mean beyond the first page that shows up on your search engine. As you’re exploring, you will recognize that most cloud hosting companies have local and international pod locations. You may become overwhelmed at all the options, but don’t worry! Options are good! Understanding your options is the first step to success. The main question is determining which pod location you should dedicate your server to. As a potential client you may wonder, “Does my physical location have any relevance to where the pod is located?” A common myth with web proximity is that if you dedicate your server to the closest pod location based on city, state or country, the speed may be faster. This is false. Pod locations do not affect speed performance. It all boils down to your personal needs and what the hosting company has to offer.

Things to consider:

  • Support: managed, unmanaged
  • Pricing
  • Flexible security settings
  • Supports a variety of Operating Systems
  • Scalability for resources
  • Usage

The only downside when selecting an international pod location is that some companies may include an international tax fee when you order your services. Zunicore currently has pod locations in Portsmouth, UK, Toronto, Canada and Fremont, California. If you would like to know more about our current pod locations and our plans for future launches, open a chat or submit a ticket and do not hesitate to ask a lot of questions!  :)

Firewall Security

The ability to protect your Cloud servers and services is extremely vital to your Zunicore experience.  Zunicore provides you greater control to adjust exactly what traffic is incoming and outgoing for your Cloud servers.  Since the Zunicore Firewall is external to your Virtual Machine, it provides even greater flexibility in protecting your Cloud servers. The firewall continues to enhance the flexibility and control you would expect from Zunicore while assuring your peace of mind is safe in the clouds.
