Leaseweb is excited to announce that we have released our Elastic Compute product in Canada!
But regardless of where you are in the world, if infrastructure scalability is something your business desperately needs, then this is the solution for you. Leaseweb Elastic Compute is trusted by many companies around the world to deliver a highly scalable and secure hybrid cloud environment. In this blog, we’ll explain use cases, features and benefits.
Why you need elasticity in cloud computing
Many businesses, particularly in industries like E-commerce, SaaS and Media, need to be able to scale their workloads up or down rapidly depending on demand. For example, if there is a Black Friday sale and an unusually high surge of traffic hits an e-commerce platform, Elastic Compute allows you to employ instantly more computing power when you need it and pay for it only when you use it. When the Black Friday deal is over, and traffic reduces again, so can your computing power.
Elastic Compute Use Cases
- Business Applications
- Enterprise Software as a Service (SAAS)
- E-commerce Websites
- AdTech & MarTech Solutions
- Integration with Other Tools
Benefits of Elastic Compute cloud
Elastic Compute enables you to spin up or spin down new instances at any time without waiting for manual approvals or lengthy processes. Loads can automatically be balanced across multiple instances, significantly reducing the risk of being unavailable to your visitors. When demand drops, simply scale down without having to worry about over-provisioning resources. For unpredictable spikes in demand, use burst mode to avoid paying for idle capacity during normal periods. Knowing your recurring default usage can also reduce costs by going for a commitment on a portion of the resources.

Start When and How you Want
You can set up and deploy your infrastructure in minutes. Start with an instance of any size and increase it as needed.
Flexibility with Resource Pools
With resource pools, you can create and manage multiple instances with your choice of operating systems, combined with the flexibility to allocate resources such as vCPUs, vRAM, storage, firewalls, and load balancers.
Full Flash Storage and Snapshots
Your Virtual Data Center is equipped with full solid-state drive storage systems for high performance and availability. Additional secondary storage for your snapshots and OS will be available in case of an emergency. All host and guest machines are equipped with built-in high-availability features to help you keep your data safe in the event of a power outage or other disaster.
Firewalls, Load balancing, and Virtual Networking
Software-based firewalls can provide additional security by providing a second layer of protection. Built-in load balancers increase the scalability of applications by dividing the workload across multiple servers. Creating multiple private networks independent from one another enhances system security by isolating critical data flows.
Fast, scalable and reliable Acronis backup solution for your files, applications, and complete systems. We have made it easy to incorporate cloud data protection into your infrastructure setup, giving you the peace of mind to focus on your core business while knowing that your data is safe and secure.
