Cloud server provider ElasticHosts has expanded its US footprint by opening two data centers – one in Miami and one in Dallas – after an increase in demand for cloud in the US and the emerging LATAM market.
By offering cloud hosting from Miami, ElasticHosts said it would attract new customers from the LATAM regions and provide better service to organization on the US East Coast.
Miami is a desirable location for data centers as it is located at the center of a subsea cable system connecting the US East Coast and LATAM region.
ElasticHosts has also extended its relationship with data center provider Equinix with the launch of a new data center in Dallas and the expansion of its data center in Sydney, Australia.
Linux cloud growth
ElasticHosts said the growth is down to its next-gen Linux cloud servers - Elastic Containers - that scale up and down automatically with IT load. Earlier this year ElasticHosts interviewed 200 CIOs to which many respondents said they see over-provisioning as a ‘necessary evil’ to handle spikes in traffic and protect performance.
Richard Davies, CEO of ElasticHosts explained, “this launch will allow us to accelerate our growth in the booming Latin American cloud market. The new Miami DC allows us to expand into this market while also providing better support to our customers on the East Coast; further broadening our footprint across the US and worldwide.”
The Miami, Dallas and Sydney data centers will provide Elastic Containers to all ElasticHosts customers from its global locations including: San Jose (Silicon Valley) and Los Angeles, California; Toronto, Canada; Amsterdam, Netherlands; Hong Kong; as well as its two London, UK, locations.
