The online self-service tool allows Ixonos’ cloud service customers to plan, purchase and independently deploy complex server and infrastructure environments within minutes, a world first. Ixonos developed Ixonos Elastic Cloud especially for demanding production of online business.

Several leading European online service providers already benefit from the reliability and user experience of Ixonos Elastic Cloud. Ixonos’ secure data centres are located in Finland and they serve more than 500 million Internet users monthly.

The tool enables customers to ensure that the right amount of resources is available throughout the lifecycle of each application, and it additionally allows costs to be tracked in real time. “Our customers will also be able to expedite their production processes and, above all, to save on infrastructure management costs”, Mr Kekkonen continues.
