UK cloud hosting provider Elastichosts announced on Tuesday that it has opened four data centers in Asia, Australasia, Europe and US, expanding its cloud servers to 9 locations.
The move expands Elastichosts’ cloud hosting service to both new and existing customers in additional international markets.
More specifically, Elastichosts will open new data centers in Hong Kong, Sydney, Amsterdam and Silicon Valley, adding to its five existing sites in London Maidenhead, London Portsmouth, San Antonio, as well as Los Angeles and Toronto, which Elastichosts opened in January 2012.
By opening a cloud location in Hong Kong, Elastichosts provides a portal for those businesses looking to expand into the high growth Asia market to reach customers in Singapore, Taiwan and the rest of northern ASEAN.
The Sydney location enables businesses to reach customers across Australia, New Zealand, and southern Europe.
The Amsterdam data center marks Elastichosts’ first site in mainland Europe and enables customers to pay in Euro currency, while serving as a hub for the rest of Europe.
And finally, the San Jose data center expands Elastichosts West Coast presence while serving as a redundant site to its Los Angeles location.
“The launch of these new data centers is a significant milestone, both in our growth and in offering our customers a truly global service,” said Richard Davies, CEO at Elastichosts. “The benefits of Cloud Servers – cost savings and improved efficiency – are attractive to people working throughout the world at all levels of IT expertise, regardless of geographical boundaries. Through the launch of these new data centers, we are able to improve redundancy, minimize latency, offer a choice of jurisdiction and bill in local currency.”
Elastichosts’ on-demand cloud servers enable customers to scale CPU, RAM and disk completely independently and be billed by the hour so they only pay for what they use.
The service features a simplified user interface, which Elastichosts recently improved, while its hard drive disks, solid state drives are available at all server instance sizes for a higher level performance of high i/o applications.
