"How cloud computing should be done"

That’s how Steve O’Donnell describes ElasticHosts on his popular blog, The Hot Aisle:

As a result of that engagement (and a few others along the way) Richard decided that data centers should be used to house computing clouds that could be delivered and torn down in seconds in a highly flexible way. He and a partner, Chris Webb then set out on the task of constructing the cloud operating system they needed to deliver on the vision.

Elastichosts has now delivered a mature, scalable and incredibly easy to use management platform that provides pre-assembled or self configured guest servers.
