(The Hosting News) – The deployment of hybrid clouds is provided for with a new service recently added by web hosting provider Hostway.
On Tuesday, the company revealed that it would offer a platform called FlexLink to its customers.
According the web host, with the new service, enterprises will be able to take storage platforms such as colocation, managed hosting and private clouds and integrate them with the FlexLink deployment solution. Hostway says that this will help businesses “achieve the optimal compute environment for their needs.”
Discussing the matter, Hostway President John Martis pointed to a market shift towards the hybrid cloud.
“Our FlexLink solution addresses this need with the ability to blend both our FlexCloud™ solution and managed server resources in any combination to build a secure, flexible and dynamically scalable infrastructure,” Martis commented.
The FlexLink cloud solution is based on the Microsoft Hyper-V Server platform. Additionally, Hostway stated the service would save users money by not requiring licensing fees on operating systems. Hostway’s hybrid cloud solution provides for a range of functions such as disaster recovery, VLAN connections, optimized compute configurations, securing data and more.
“FlexLink will help organizations considering “cloud,” but concerned with leveraging existing infrastructure assets, reduce further corporate cap ex investments by using a hybrid cloud approach,” stated company CFO Mark D. Adolph. Adolph also said that the solution would “provide the attractive variable cost structure sought by all in today’s economic environment.”
As a company, Hostway’s solutions include cloud, domain registration, managed hosting and more. The company operates its services from its Chicago, Illinois data center. The facility offers server space amounting for 31 thousand square feet.
In November, Hostway agreed to partner with technology company Cognent, allowing Cognent’s customers to make use of Hostway’s cloud solutions. For more information regarding Hostway, visit the company’s website: http://www.hostway.com/
