First two providers already signed up; many further discussions ongoing

June 28, 2010, London: ElasticHosts, the international cloud provider, today
announced the launch of the ElasticStack cloud platform
(www.elasticstack.com ), a powerful platform
that enables hosting providers and data centres to offer own-brand cloud
servers to their customers swiftly.

Built on the proven platform that underpins ElasticHosts’ own cloud services
in the UK and US, ElasticStack is a complete turn-key solution for
organisations looking to maximise revenues from cloud hosting services
quickly. ElasticStack helps service providers offer their customers
ultra-flexible and easy-to-use cloud server capacity, without any upfront
investment or development work, and runs entirely on low-cost commodity
server hardware.

Commenting on the launch of ElasticStack, Richard Davies, CEO at
ElasticHosts, said, “As the use of cloud-based services continues to gain
momentum, growing numbers of hosting providers are looking to offer
own-brand cloud servers to their customers. Hosting providers and data
centre businesses that sense customer demand for cloud can now simply
license and deploy our proven technology. This dramatically improves the
speed with which they can offer cutting-edge cloud server products to their
customers, which is crucial in this fast-expanding market where time to
launch is pivotal to success.”

Davies continues, “As we offer a complete turn-key solution, hosting
providers and data centre businesses can focus on selling cloud servers to
their customers under their own brands; we license our complete software
solution and optionally also provide fully managed technical operations. We
can run on pre-existing commodity server hardware or provide complete
hardware and software solutions with our cloud-in-a-box hardware partners

A number of service providers have already licensed ElasticStack with
further discussions ongoing in North America, Europe, the Middle East and
Asia. Existing licensees include Dave Cummings at OpenHosting who commented,
“Building our cloud services on an existing platform helps us bring
cutting-edge products to market swiftly, giving us a significant competitive
advantage in our markets.”

Davies concludes, “The introduction of the ElasticStack cloud platform is a
significant step in the development of ElasticHosts. We are proud to have
recently expanded our own hosting business into the US, but we also
understand that there are many service providers across the world that
already receive enquiries about cloud every day and would be delighted to
have cutting-edge products to offer their loyal customers. By helping these
partners to launch own-brand cloud services swiftly, we instantly give them
cutting-edge products to sell and leave them free to focus on what they do
best and drive their revenues.”
