Hostway Named Microsoft Hyper-V Cloud Provider of the Year

Hostway Corporation, a global leader in infrastructure and cloud hosting services, today announced it has been selected as the 2011 Microsoft Hyper-V Cloud Provider of the Year. Hostway was recognized for its unique solutions that offer exceptional flexibility and provide enterprise-grade compute capacity in the cloud at an unbeatable value.

Hostway's FlexCloud™ Servers were designed to be one of the most flexible, reliable and easy-to-use cloud hosting solutions on the market and are based on Microsoft's Hyper-V and System Center, supporting both Windows and Linux virtual machines. An intuitive Web-based management console enables users to create and self-manage multiple clouds, automating the administration of resources including server instances, CPU/RAM/Disk, IP addresses, security, load balancing and more. Public and private image libraries facilitate saving and cloning of images, user-initiated snapshots save multiple states and backups are automatically scheduled and performed. With FlexCloud, provisioning takes minutes, enabling near real-time availability of resources to meet growth and variability requirements.

Hostway is the first cloud hosting provider in the industry to offer Automatic Price Protection, a revolutionary billing model that was commended for the value it affords customers. Automatic Price Protection guarantees the lowest price by automatically billing for services at whichever model costs less: hourly billing based on usage or a fixed monthly rate, providing a predictable cap to help control costs.

The Hyper-V Cloud Provider of the Year award was presented by Austen Mulinder, CVP, CS, corporate vice president of the Communications Sector at Microsoft during the opening keynote of the 2011 Microsoft Hosting Summit in Bellevue, Wash.

With more than 75 Microsoft Hyper-V Cloud Service providers offering their own unique services, Hostway's vice president of Enterprise Hosting Todd Benjamin says the Hyper-V Provider of the Year honor from Microsoft is strong validation of Hostway's superior, cost-effective offering.

"We've received numerous accolades and best-in-class rankings from a wide range of industry analysts and publications, but we are especially thrilled to be recognized by Microsoft for our innovation in technology and customer focus," Benjamin said. "We look forward to the opportunity to continue evolving our services in concert with Microsoft to meet our clients' every-changing needs."
