Detailed Description

Update

FlexiScale, the new chief competitor to the popular Amazon Beta services S3 and EC2, offers an on demand pay as you go hosting solution. The service is a owned and run by long time hosting company XCalibre and shockingly has never had the need to take any funding.

The service is launched (October 2007) at a time when on demand hosting is becoming popular among startups which experience steep traffic inclines and need flexible/elastic computing solutions. Amazon EC2 offers this elastic computing power in a beta service and has garnered such hot startups as Kevin Rose's Pownce. However, the Amazon service does not offer service level aggrements. FlexiScale, on the other hand, promises 99.99% uptime and has a very similar pricing stucture.

FlexiScale has other bonuses including automatically bringing back your data on a new server if the original dies and switching your site to a new box if one box experiences too much traffic. Amazon can not yet match these features.
