Are you ready to move onto the Cloud? Here at VSL we can help. We offer customers the secure and reliable Amazon EC2 solution.

Elastic Web-Scale Computing

Amazon EC2 enables you to increase or decrease capacity within minutes, not hours or days. You can commission one, hundreds, or even thousands of server instances simultaneously. Because this is all controlled with web service APIs, your application can automatically scale itself up and down depending on its needs.

Completely Controlled

You have complete control of your instances including root access and the ability to interact with them as you would any machine. You can stop any instance while retaining the data on the boot partition, and then subsequently restart the same instance using web service APIs. Instances can be rebooted remotely using web service APIs, and you also have access to their console output.

Flexible Cloud Hosting Services

You have the choice of multiple instance types, operating systems, and software packages. Amazon EC2 allows you to select a configuration of memory, CPU, instance storage, and the boot partition size that is optimal for your choice of operating system and application. For example, choice of operating systems includes numerous Linux distributions and Microsoft Windows Server.

Integrated

Amazon EC2 is integrated with most VSL services providing a complete, secure solution for computing, query processing, and Cloud storage across a wide range of applications.

Reliable

Amazon EC2 offers a highly reliable environment where replacement instances can be rapidly and predictably commissioned. The service runs within Amazon’s proven network infrastructure and data centres. The Amazon EC2 Service Level Agreement commitment is 99.95% availability for each Amazon EC2 Region.

Cloud security at VSL is the highest priority.
