Cloud Server Firm ElasticHosts Launches Two US Data Centers
UK cloud server provider ElasticHosts has launched new data centers in Miami and Dallas, the company announced Thursday. ElasticHosts hopes the new points of presence will reduce latency for customers on the east coast of the US, while providing access to the Latin American Market.
In addition to the two new American data centers, ElasticHosts has expanded its Sydney data center. The Sydney and Dallas data centers are both Equinix facilities, building on an existing relationship.
With the new capacity ElasticHosts is also able to announce global availability of Elastic Containers. The auto scaling and pay for use model of Elastic Containers make the containerized cloud servers 50 percent lower cost to Linux users than virtual machines, according to the company.
ElasticHosts launched Elastic Containers in April, calling the IaaS offering its flagship solution.
The Miami data center provides connectivity to the hub of undersea cables which service the US east coast and rapidly emerging Latin American markets. IT spending in Latin America, led by Brazil, is expected to continue to increase substantially in 2015, according to Tech Pro Research. Brazil’s cloud services market is expected to surpass one billion dollars by 2017, according to an April Frost Sullivan report.

"This launch will allow us to accelerate our growth in the booming Latin American cloud market," said Richard Davies, ElasticHosts CEO. "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."
ElasticHosts has been growing its network steadily, adding two new points of presence in early 2012 to serve North America and four more in early 2013 to expand its global availability.
