ScaleXtreme's Dynamic Server Assembly™ technology allows for customers to use pre-built server templates and launch a variety of applications without additional coding.
"Cloud computing is a hugely transformative change for IT and business in general.

By including ScaleXtreme with its core offering, theCloud is helping to make real the benefits of the cloud for Kiwi businesses" says Ben Kepes, Cloud computing analyst and commentator.
