ElasticHosts, a cloud server provider, has extended its white-label reseller program. Going forward, the program will include “Elastic Containers,” infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offerings that are billed based on consumption rather than capacity.

“Elastic Containers are a breakthrough next-generation technology that the channel can now deliver to its customers, with the added flexibility and performance of running on solid state drive (SSD) storage at all instance sizes,” Richard Davies, CEO and co-founder of ElasticHosts, said in a prepared statement. “The updated white-label program provides partners with a unique and simple way to get one over on the competition.”

Davies pointed out that ElasticHosts is billing for each megabyte used during a 15-minute interval with its Elastic Containers. And by billing for actual usage, customers only pay for what they use.

“Essentially, Elastic Containers are completely unique; by white-labelng this solution, the channel can open up a number of new opportunities and really set themselves apart from the competition,” Davies said in a prepared statement.

ElasticHosts said that Elastic Containers can help its channel customers save money. In addition, ElasticHosts noted that Elastic Containers are “a unique offering in today’s crowded cloud marketplace, helping partners to differentiate, without the need for significant upfront investment or a dedicated skillset.”

Here are some of Elastic Containers’ features:

  • A usage-based billing system

  • Auto-scaling

  • Backed by Elastic Hosts’ Solid State Drive (SSD) storage

  • Self-managing infrastructure

  • Suitable for all Linux users

Elastic Containers can be hosted from any of ElasticHosts’ nine global data centers. ElasticHosts also is claiming that Elastic Containers offer 50 percent savings when compared to the standard virtual machines (VMs) offered by other IaaS providers.
