Note: Our Cloud Platform has been launched and features public cloud hosting, private cloud 0fferings, and our unique hybrid cloud.
We're about to jump onto the cloud hosting bandwagon with everyone else, but unlike everyone else, we're doing things differently with the Steadfast Cloud Platform. Instead of saying that the cloud is the solution for everything, we're focusing on the idea of a "Hybrid Cloud" where you can use virtual machines on a private or public cloud, dedicated servers, and colocation all combined into a common solution. Yes, you'll be able to use our high speed internal network from your dedicated servers to the virtual machines on our cloud platform. if you have a colocated environment with your own firewall, VLANs, and/or routing you don't need to buy extra hardware to grow quickly, you can just add virtual machines as needed.
Overall, we're building on the idea of providing a true enterprise solution (redundant NetApp SAN, fully redundant Cisco architecture) with the utmost in flexibility. Starting at just $20 a month (Note: We no longer have a monthly minimum) you'll have access to just a huge amount of on-demand resources, with all resources being billed for hourly, thus you only pay for exactly what you need.
You can read a lot more about our Cloud Platform here: https://steadfast.net/services/cloud-hosting.php In general, it is Xen based virtualization (KVM and/or VMWare options likely coming in the future) that utilizes OnApp to develop a highly elastic, high availability, on-demand cloud platform.
The Cloud is Here!
