Web Hosting ServicesChicago, Illinois — Hostway Corporation, a leading provider of custom infrastructure services and managed hosting, today announced the expansion of its portfolio of enterprise hosting solutions with FlexLink to enable hybrid cloud deployments.Hostway’s hybrid cloud solutions will allow a company to combine a managed public cloud infrastructure (FlexCloud™) with managed hosting, colocation and private cloud services to achieve the optimal compute environment for their needs.

Customers can now utilize any mix of Hostway’s physical and virtual hosting platforms for infrastructure requirements ranging from corporate websites and e-commerce stores to SaaS applications, databases, storage and more. The infrastructure services can be customized based on the security, compliance, performance and scalability demands of each component.

First Hyper-V™ Hybrid Cloud
Hostway’s FlexLink creates the first Microsoft Hyper-V™ based hybrid cloud available in the hosting marketplace. Hyper-V™ users can seamlessly port their cloud instances in and out of a Hostway hybrid environment while augmenting their infrastructure for additional compute capacity, instant scale and geographic failover. In addition, the Hyper-V™ environment reduces costs for Microsoft users by eliminating the need to pay for operating system licenses.

Hostway’s hybrid cloud solution also offers full support for Linux and other operating systems and can connect to Hostway’s hypervisor-agnostic managed private cloud.

In addition to providing a mix-and-match hosted computing platform for their core infrastructure needs, Hostway’s hybrid cloud can be used for Securing critical data, Disaster recovery, etc.

“The market is clearly moving to a hybrid compute model, with analysts predicting that most cloud adoptions in the future will consist of combined private/public cloud configurations,” said John Martis, President, at Hostway. “Our FlexLink solution addresses this need with the ability to blend both our FlexCloud™ solution and managed server resources in any combination to build a secure, flexible and dynamically scalable infrastructure.”

Hostway Chief Financial Officer, Mark D. Adolph added, “FlexLink will help organizations considering “cloud” but concerned with prior infrastructure purchases or security reduce their corporate cap ex investments by using a hybrid cloud approach.This will provide the attractive variable cost structure sought by all in today’s economic environment.”
