TOKYO--July 7, 2009--Internet Initiative Japan, Inc. (IIJ, NASDAQ:IIJI; TSE1:3774) and US-based subsidiary, IIJ America Inc., today announced the introduction of a next-generation hybrid server to the Point Red hosting service. In addition, initial startup fees will be waived for new customers who sign up between July 7 and August 31 as part of a promotional campaign.

Point Red ( is a hosting service that provides servers in one of three configurations: shared, virtual private, and private. These servers reside on IIJ Group's broadband backbone to provide the optimum connectivity environment. The new hybrid server has both advanced features and complete redundancy and is offered at an even lower cost. Though a virtual server, the new hybrid server provides features that rival those of private servers.

Below is a list of feature highlights.

Service Features

  • Self-managed service that allows the customer to manage their own server domain.
  • A range of software applications can be installed in addition to the Web server.
  • Virtualization technology Xen is used to build a fast stable server environment even within a virtual environment.
  • A standard double CPU core (DualCore).

  • RAID-6 is used for the storage system, ensuring a high level of reliability.
  • Up to four fixed IP addresses can be assigned.
  • Server and network equipment is fully redundant to achieve the stability and availability demanded by businesses, and is ideal for managing sites on which stability and reliability are critical.
