(The Hosting News) – Hostway Corporation, a global leader in infrastructure and web application hosting, today announced the release of FlexCloud Servers, a scalable, on-demand cloud computing solution that combines the flexibility of a public cloud with the reliability and performance of an enterprise grade virtual environment.. Hostway delivers a pay-as-you-grow, elastic, enterprise-grade cloud infrastructure that can be self-provisioned and administered 24 hours a day, giving the customer full administrator access and complete control to scale individual computing resources.
FlexCloud Servers were designed to be one of the most flexible, reliable, and easy to use cloud hosting solutions on the market. An intuitive web-based management console enables users to create and self manage multiple clouds; automating the administration of resources including server instances, CPU/RAM/Disk, IP addresses, security, load balancing and more. Public and private image libraries facilitate saving and cloning of images, user initiated snapshots save multiple states, and backups are automatically scheduled and performed. With FlexCloud, provisioning takes minutes, enabling near real time availability of resources to meet growth and variability requirements.
Unlike most public clouds, FlexCloud Servers incorporates high availability features including automated failover of instances, fully redundant host, network, and storage hardware, and enterprise class Storage Area Networks to increase performance and reliability. With FlexCloud, users sacrifice neither speed nor reliability to gain the flexibility of true cloud computing.
“We’re thrilled to write the next chapter of the Hostway leadership in the cloud” says Todd Benjamin, vice president of Enterprise Hosting for Hostway. “With FlexCloud Servers we picked and chose the best that cloud technologies and business models have to offer, creating a package of features and functionality that is unparalleled in the industry.”
To further encourage users to experience the benefits of FlexCloud, Hostway is offering a revolutionary pricing model known as Automatic Price Protection. With this model, pricing will automatically be set at the LOWER of the usage based or fixed monthly rating. CIOs can realize the best of both worlds – pay as you go for low or variable utilization, with the predictability of a fixed monthly cap on the amount that a resource will cost. Price Protection is virtually unheard of in the industry today.
