There's hybrid cloud. And then there's on-demand hybrid cloud, according to Codero Hosting. The provider of dedicated, managed, cloud and hybrid hosting services has extended its hybrid cloud offering with the introduction of On-Demand Hybrid Cloud Hosting, which it bills as "the industry's only true hybrid solution."

With the new offering, Codero pairs "best-of-breed cloud and dedicated hosting technologies" to provide the flexibility and benefits of a public cloud with the security of traditional IT infrastructure. According to Codero, this flexible computing model enables businesses to simultaneously run apps on traditional and cloud infrastructure, depending on the needs of the individual application.

"Our On-Demand Hybrid Cloud Hosting was developed based on the reality of how businesses deploy and run applications today," said Emil Sayegh, president and CEO of Codero Hosting, in a prepared statement. "It gives customers the power to use the IT resources best suited for their individual needs, getting the best of all worlds through one trusted partner with unparalleled hosting expertise—a true on-demand IT infrastructure model."

The company noted a few of the features in its announcement. They include:

  • On-demand scalability for usage spikes
  • No I/O resource contentions for databases
  • Customizable network performance
  • Dedicated servers, smart servers, cloud servers and networking devices connect easily
  • Customers pay only for connection speeds needed
  • Guaranteed 100 percent network uptime

The differentiating factor, according to Codero, is that other hosting providers claim hybrid functionality, but aren't able to deliver all the components of a hybrid solution without bridging to proprietary or outside sources. That, Codero noted, makes for a more expensive and "less elegant" hybrid cloud offering that lacks a single point of accountability.

Codero aims to provide customers with those capabilities with native dedicated and cloud instances in one private network.
