City Network Launches First Cloud Computing Service Based in Scandinavia

City Network Launches First Cloud Computing Service Based in Scandinavia aimed for European market

Karlskrona, Sweden, City Network,  a leading Scandinavian provider of hosting services, announced today the launch of an innovative Cloud Computing service.  The new service, called City Cloud, enables customers to create virtual servers and scale them up and down as needed with a single click. The service is available immediately to customers, and is the first Cloud Computing service based in Scandinavia.

City Cloud enables customers to pay by the hour rather than investing in their own servers and data centers.  The service has a price point starting at about half of competing products, such as Amazon EC2.

City Network partnered with Enomaly to create City Cloud, and the service is based on Enomaly’s Elastic Computing Platform, Service Provider Edition.  City Cloud also leverages City Networks established and robust infrastructure, with multiple power and network providers, dual cooling sources, and 100 percent guaranteed uptime SLA.

“Our present and future customers can benefit tremendously from the power and flexibility of Cloud Computing,” said Johan Christenson, Chairman of City Network.  “We are delighted to offer this innovative and powerful Cloud Computing service, based on Enomaly’s platform, as part of our ongoing commitment to innovate and deliver quality services that exceed our customers’ highest expectations.”

City Network will host the Enomaly ECP cloud computing platform within its Swedish data center, enabling City Networks’ customers to access and manage any number of virtual servers, running Microsoft Windows, Linux, Solaris, or any other operating system with the software applications of their choice.  Customers can access and manage their virtual servers through a web-based dashboard, and can also automatically scale up and down their use of cloud servers through a robust API.

“We are delighted to have City Network join the growing number of Service Providers offering cloud computing services based on the Enomaly Elastic Computing Platform”, stated Dr. Richard Reiner, CEO of Enomaly. “We believe customers in Sweden will benefit tremendously from having a powerful Cloud Computing service available locally, without trans-border regulatory concerns and the delays of long-distance Internet access.”

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
