Seattle-based Adhost, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, is Pacific Northwest's leading providers of web hosting, e-commerce solutions, web development services, and email marketing tools. Adhost distinguishes services with an exacting level of customer service that sets the company in a different league. Adhost started looking for adding a cloud solution to their customer offering as it can provide the best of all hosting options - a low cost and complete control over the environment. Adhost was impressed by the capability and potential of a cloud environment. Adhost chose to build their cloud using Microsoft virtualization and cloud technologies, with Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V and System Center Virtual Machine Manager as the foundation. They chose Microsoft's Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V on the basis that it provided the fastest, cheapest, easiest, and most flexible approach to building a cloud infrastructure versus any other approach that was considered. Adhost chose to go with Microsoft for three core reasons. First, from a cost standpoint Adhost was able to save approximately 20% over VMware in total licensing costs to build out the cloud infrastructure. Second, Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter Edition Hyper-V provides greater configuration options which will allow Adhost to incorporate a higher level of customization to their cloud. Finally, Adhost values their ongoing partnership with Microsoft.
