ProfitBricks, based in both Boston, Mass., and Berlin, Germany, is developing a new cloud infrastructure-as-a-service technology it says provides better performance at a lower cost than current cloud platform providers by allowing users to change their virtual servers and network infrastructure at any time.
With ProfitBricks' Data Center Designer, no pre-defined plans or configurations are required and users can scale their virtual data centers.
With ProfitBricks’ Live Vertical Scaling, users can set up their data centers to adapt to their infrastructure needs by adding processor cores without restarting their virtual servers and environments.
The startup says such flexibility and high-end capabilities have not been achieved by cloud-computing service providers before.
