ElasticHosts Takes Ultra-Flexible, Scalable Cloud Hosting to the US

US businesses can now use cloud servers which have taken Europe by storm

June 1, 2010, London: ElasticHosts, the UK-based cloud provider, today announced the launch of its cloud server solutions in the US. The offering, which will be available from San Antonio Texas from June 1, provides ultra-flexible and easy-to-use server capacity for scalable web hosting and on-demand burst computing. Customers will benefit from a user-friendly interface that can be managed from any desktop and allows them to create virtual servers instantly and resize their capacity immediately.

The launch into the US follows ElasticHost’s huge success in Europe, which has seen growth of more than one percent every day since August 2009. With the launch, ElasticHosts becomes the second cloud hosting provider in the world to offer cloud servers from data centers in two continents to serve the needs of its customers. With the exception of Amazon, every other provider operates cloud servers in either Europe or North America, but not both.

Commenting on the company’s entry into the US, Richard Davies, CEO of ElasticHosts, said, “Having facilities in both the US and the UK means we can now serve both markets with local cloud servers, offering fast direct network links and data storage within local jurisdiction and data protection regimes to both European and North American customers. We are really excited to be moving into the US and look forward both to helping our European customers expand and to reaching new US customers.”

ElasticHosts’ cloud servers allow customers the cost-efficiency of buying exactly the capacity they need today, with the peace of mind that they can immediately scale up or down as required. Capacity is billed on-demand by the hour, unlike traditional hosting contracts which tie customers to fixed capacity for up to two years. The servers run any PC operating system, are fully configurable and designed to accommodate all forms of web hosting. ElasticHosts offers a 100 percent SLA with 100x credits for downtime, supporting mission critical hosting needs where business continuity is vital.

Davies, continues: “To date, businesses looking for the cost savings and scalability of cloud hosting have had to tackle complex user interfaces and have been limited to a handful of server sizes offered by different vendors. We have designed ElasticHosts so that it can be used by almost anyone – it allows users to configure their servers specifically to suit their requirements. With our expansion into the US we are aiming to capitalize on this ease of use and offer customers on two continents a competitively priced, familiar experience when they move to the cloud. This reduces the need for training and dramatically speeds up deployment, leaving our customers free to focus on what they do best and drive their revenues.”

To mark its launch into the US, ElasticHosts is offering a free five-day trial to allow businesses to experience the power and simplicity of cloud hosting for themselves. Full details are available at www.elastichosts.com.
