UK-based ElasticHosts have been selling on-demand, instantly scalable cloud servers since 2008 and now boast 9 independent locations across the UK, US, Canada, Netherlands, Hong Kong and Australia. Their virtual cloud servers, based on Linux KVM virtualization, offer all the power and control of a traditional hosted server whilst giving you an unmatched combination of instant flexibility, ease of use and cost efficiency.
The ElasticHosts service is self-managed and customers have the freedom to run the OS and applications of their choice, as well as having free choice of CPU and RAM allocation. Pricing starts from 30 GBP (45 USD) per month and you can choose to pay by monthly subscription or just pay for what you use on their hourly burst scheme. More information is available at www.elastichosts.com.
In addition to offering a public cloud hosting service, ElasticHosts also licences their technology under the brand ElasticStack, thus enabling other hosting providers to very quickly offer their own cloud service under their own branding from their own data centres. See www.elasticstack.com for more details.
The inspiration to found ElasticHosts came from seeing the enormous impact of virtualization on every aspect of server technology, and the realization that people sometimes find it a challenge to achieve the scale and expertise necessary to exploit this alone.
