ElasticHosts' Elastic Containers

In a test analysis with its largest customers, ElasticHosts found that switching to the company's new Elastic Containers—cloud servers that are based purely on consumption, rather than capacity—would result in a 50% or more cost savings. The secret sauce is a breakthrough auto-scaling container technology that elastically expands and contracts to meet customer demands, entirely eliminating the need for manual provisioning. Because each container automatically can scale up to 64GB RAM, companies can handle usage peaks and valleys more effectively. Aside from disrupting the cloud market, ElasticHosts adds that Elastic Containers also will eliminate load balancers and reduce disaster recovery costs.
