Elastra Showcases Cloud Server at 2008 Web 2.0 Expo

Elastra Showcases Cloud Server at 2008 Web 2.0 Expo

Elastra Corporation, the leading provider of software for designing, deploying, and managing application infrastructure in public and private compute clouds, today announced it will showcase the ELASTRA CLOUD SERVER at the Web 2.0 Expo, April 23-25 at Moscone West, San Francisco.

The ELASTRA CLOUD SERVER enables web-based businesses, SaaS/ISVs and Enterprise IT organizations to launch and manage sophisticated, clustered database and application infrastructure systems quickly and easily in on-demand computing environments such as the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). Companies building applications focus their resources and time on their core competencies of developing applications and serving customers – not on infrastructure. Elastic Computing, powered by ELASTRA’s CLOUD SERVER On-Demand, allows these businesses to:

  • Speed time-to-market — design, deploy, scale and manage clustered, highly-scalable application infrastructure systems in the cloud in minutes
  • Lower barriers to entry into new market segments — segments previously requiring large upfront investments in infrastructure software and data centers are now more cost-effective to enter
  • Better manage cash flow — zero upfront investment and meter-based pricing means capital expenditures are replaced by operational expenses, improving cash flow and freeing up working capital
  • Handle surges in application demand with ease — no more wasting resources from over-provisioning infrastructure in anticipation of spikes in demand or missing revenue opportunities due to under-provisioning

The ELASTRA CLOUD SERVER revolutionizes the way applications are designed, deployed and managed in the cloud. Currently available in controlled production release, the ELASTRA CLOUD SERVER On-Demand will be made generally available on April 28, 2008.

For additional information, please contact Katie Watson (415/848-2589). Please visit Elastra at Booth #127 to register for an Apple MacBook Air give away.
