Cloud hosting provider ElasticHosts, with nine data centers located in Europe, the U.S., Canada, Asia and Australia, has expanded its white-label reseller program to include new Elastic Containers; cloud servers to be billed based purely on consumption, rather than capacity.
Launched in 2012, ElasticHosts’ white-label program allows channel partners to offer ElasticHosts’ cloud hosting services under their own branding with 30% share of recurring revenues. Partners would be able to be up and running, selling to customers, with a full cloud hosting service within hours. The reseller program offers full control over the cloud environment, enabling partners to offer a range of management and customer support services.
The addition of Elastic Containers to the whitelabel-program program offers partners an elastic cloud service whereby capacity is always available. Through the new service, with prices based on consumption partners can reduce the prices of their cloud servers and compete with large cloud providers such as Amazon.
Elastic Containers are suitable for all Linux users, backed by ElasticHosts’ Solid State Drive (SSD) storage for added performance, and can be hosted from any of the company’ global datacenters.
By using Elastic Containers, companies can handle all their usage peaks and troughs effortlessly, automatically scaling each container up to 64GB RAM. ElasticHosts’ auto-scaling, elastic infrastructure expands and contracts automatically, completely removing the need for manual management or provisioning.
Through the updated white-label reseller program, ElasticHosts is also allowing partners to drive margins in new specialist areas, like disaster recovery, and become a Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) provider. By offering customers Elastic Containers, resellers can strip out a significant part of these costs, as a fully configured version of the primary server – commonly known as the ‘hot spare’ – can be running continuously. This version is ready for action if needed, but runs at a minimal cost, since actual usage is very low on the idle ‘hot spare’.
ElasticHosts is a global provider of cloud servers. The company has thousands of customers in over 60 countries worldwide. Its headquarters are in London, UK.
