ForLinux will host the ECP cloud computing platform within its UK based datacenter

ForLinux announced that it will begin offering Cloud Computing services to its customers, using the Enomaly Elastic Computing Platform (ECP), Service Provider Edition. This will be one of the first ECP Cloud Computing service based in UK.

ForLinux will host the ECP cloud computing platform within its UK based datacenter, enabling ForLinux’s customer to access computing capacity on demand. ForLinux’s Cloud Computing service is expected to be available to customers on 1st August 2009. ForLinux’s Enomaly ECP-based Cloud Computing service can be used to host web sites, to power internal business applications, and to provide burst capacity to meet peak loads for existing systems. ForLinux’s ECP Cloud Computing platform enables customers to access and manage any number of virtual servers, running on any Open Source operating system. Customers access and manage their virtual servers through a web-based dashboard. Customers can also automatically scale up and down their use of cloud servers through a robust web-based API.

“We are delighted to have ForLinux among the select group of Charter Customers for the rollout of the Service Provider Edition of our Elastic Computing Platform”, stated Dr. Richard Reiner, CEO of Enomaly. “We believe customers in the UK will benefit tremendously from having a Cloud Computing service available locally, without trans-border regulatory concerns, and the delays of long-distance Internet access.”
