The flexibility we now enjoy has resulted in vast financial savings.

I have battled with another cloud hosting provider for months trying to build a Gentoo AMI, wasting over 80 hours on it. I’m not the most savvy Linux sysadmin but I can get the job done – but the usability of many other cloud hosting systems is just terrible. I have now been using ElasticHosts for four and a half hours. I have already built my Gentoo box, and our configuration system Puppet is about 1/3rd of the way through its work. I love the ElasticHosts infrastructure.

ElasticHosts is not only the fantastic technical stuff for the very reasonable price, it’s also the people, who are always ready to help. I’m saying absolutely sincerely that ElasticHosts provides the most high-quality support that I saw during my 15 years in the online business. I’m confident that no matter what, I’m backed by ElasticHosts, and this is awesome.
Dmitry Vasiliev, co-founder and co-owner, Blin Media, Russia
You guys rock! Whenever there has been a question I have received prompt and competent replies that go beyond the average hosting support. I remember one time when I sent an email at midnight, not expecting an answer until the morning, I got one 3 minutes later… The ElasticHosts team is fast, efficient and highly professional. Keep up the amazing work!

After six years of managing our own servers in Paris we were looking to secure our e-commerce platform in the cloud. European-based ElasticHosts offered exactly what we were looking for, open-source-based hosting with great sales support.

ElasticHosts should be used as a synonym in the dictionary for Customer Service and Cloud Computing. Hats off to the support team… We are having a great walk in the clouds thanks to you guys!

ElasticHosts provided a UK based cloud solution and it took minutes to get an ElasticHosts server setup and running. Being able to buy the exact capacity I need has been very useful. For example, a high performance machine was not needed but scaleable storage was and that can be expanded with a few clicks. If in the future more performance is needed that is also a few clicks. Support at ElasticHosts has been excellent too over the 9 months or so that I have used them
Jeremy Curtis, Flint IT, UK
I must thank all you guys at ElasticHosts for all the support and great service. Any time I need some technical assistance, you guys are so quick to help always going the extra mile. I hardly know what to do with all the time I’m saving not having to fix broken servers and internet connections!

I have been testing in the last week the ElasticHosts Virtual Hosting Services (Linux System pre-installed systems: Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS), with the initial/base package. Technically speaking: The latency is low (the lowest the best) and stable, does not have significant increases when I increased the machine’s usage and data transfer rates. Accessing files (read/write) is extremely fast. CPU and Memory provided looks pretty well and stable too. I can say that ElasticHosts is very easy and simple to use, is very “elastic” in the solutions that provides, and is capable of supporting enterprise sized solutions.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for your efforts in supporting our migration to your services. On a number of key technical and support-related points you beat Amazon EC2 hands down. Amazon’s EC2 doesn’t support Windows 2008 R2 at this time. Also, EC2′s smallest 64-bit image is too small to run a Windows server, while the next size up is far too big for generic application server or Windows infrastructure tasks. To have implemented and released into production the services that we have, in less than a month – and not forgetting that this included Christmas and the New Year, is a testament to not only the technology, but the support that has made this a viable business solution. We look forward to building on this base over the coming years.

For on-demand software testing on multiple operating systems, I don’t feel there is any other option but ElasticHosts.
Robert Kenyon, Software Engineer, US
When we were looking to move web hosting in April 2009, our primary concern was that we chose a UK provider that was flexible enough for our requirements. We were also looking for a solution flexible enough to rapidly deploy product demos and interactive technology previews. After reading a number of articles on Cloud Computing, the reality in the UK is starkly different to larger markets like the USA: fewer providers, limited data centres and more expense. Having limited our options to three big name providers, we found ElasticHosts and were so impressed with their product offering that we registered for their free trial and had a web server up and running within minutes from their provided images. That web server wasn’t quite right for us, so we deleted it and rebuilt one from scratch inside a further hour. There lies the beauty of ElasticHosts: with their combination of behind-the-scenes technical expertise and their excellent management interface, building, deploying, altering & scaling any type of hosted server is a doddle. If you can’t manage it yourself, there are pre-built server images and an excellent interface into other server image providers. Support is always on hand and quick to resolve problems. I recommend ElasticHosts to any client with a requirement and look forward to further product development in the future.

I have used many other cloud and virtual server solutions in the past. I was beginning to get frustrated with these providers and had been looking for alternatives for a while. Then I found ElasticHosts and I realised that I would be able to add a lot of flexibility for no extra cost. I now have quite a few servers with ElasticHosts. We can buy exactly the capacity that we need today and then scale it when we need more, which is a huge benefit and saves a lot of money. The best thing about ElasticHosts for me though, is being able to talk technical to someone who can talk technical back – a rare thing these days!
Andrew Fear, Trana eCommerce, UK
I have been very impressed with the service that ElasticHosts provides. It is so simple to use yet works so well. My applications are running really quickly and I can swiftly add extra servers, CPU, memory or disk space whenever I need to. It’s a big weight off my mind not having to worry about maintaining or buying hardware for my server anymore. The support is great – friendly and effective.
