Web hosting provider Hostway announced a cloud computing infrastructure called FlexCloud. The highlights of FlexCloud from Hostway, as from other cloud hosting providers, is the on-demand automated allocation of CPU, memory, storage and bandwidth for individual websites and greater reliability through inherently redundant infrastructure architecture and deployment. This announcement is notable because Hostway is one of the first traditional web hosting companies to move into the cloud.
Hostway's 60,000 North American hosting customers' websites will be moved immediately to the new cloud computing infrastructure.
"The primary benefit of FlexCloud for business hosting clients is gaining access to a multi-million dollar ultra-reliable hosting infrastructure that scales up and down at your command for as low as $15 per month. The secondary benefit, for some this may be the primary benefit, is that Hostway has made it easy," said John Lee, senior vice president of small business hosting.
