Hosting provider eUKhost has just launched the eNlight Cloud Computing Platform, which according to the company is an “intelligent, auto-scalable” cloud platform that works on the basis of a pay-per-use payment model.
At the core of the platform is an innovative Web-based GUI that enables instant deployment and management of virtual machines (VMs) and auto-scalable multi-server cluster architecture.
“Customer demands are changing rapidly and the need for scalability and redundancy are the primary concerns that are gaining importance increasingly,” said Stanley Jones, business development manager at eUKhost, said. “Moreover, affordable cloud hosting and pay-per-use are the features that customers associate with cloud hosting these days.”
“To keep up with the changing trends in the industry, we have deployed a pay-per-use payment model where a customer would only have to pay for the resources that they actually use instead of paying a fixed monthly fee,” Jones added.
Thanks to the Web-based GUI powered by AJAX, the platform allows real-time deployment of new VMs as well as real time monitoring of the already created VMs. In addition to these, eNlight offers an on-demand intelligent auto-scalable service created on a cluster of high configuration dedicated servers, the company said.
A highlight of eNlight Cloud is the pre-paid billing system where customers can predict their usage using the predictor tool and forecast their bill. Users can forecast their bills based on the amount of CPU, RAM (News - Alert), Bandwidth, Disk Space deployed on eNlight and also check the billing on an hourly basis.
eNlight’s Auto scaling technology along with Pay-As-You-Go feature allow for optimum usage of resources. Plus, there are no upfront hardware set-up costs. These considerations alone enable savings of up to 60 percent for clients, the company said.
“eNlight offers an altogether different approach to instant vertical scaling capabilities of a Cloud,” a spokesperson from the company said. “With eNlight, users can avail flexibility, economy and security at the same time, unlike any other company in the industry.”
The server infrastructure on eNlight Cloud platform features an intelligent tool that fetches the necessary resources from a large pool of free resources and allocates it to the VM as and when required. This allows resources on VMs to scale-up or down depending upon the demand.
