CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CohesiveFT (http://www.cohesiveft.com), the leader in onboarding solutions for virtual and cloud computing infrastructures, today announced the addition of both Ubuntu 9.04 Server Edition (Jaunty Jackalope) and Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 (Lenny) operating systems to its Elastic Server platform, the company's web-based factory for real-time virtual and cloud server assembly. The Elastic Server platform lets users assemble custom virtual and cloud servers using a point-and-click, self-service interface. The addition of the most recent stable versions of Ubuntu and Debian as operating system options gives users the ability to assemble and deploy their custom Ubuntu or Debian Elastic Servers to numerous virtual and cloud environments including Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud™ (EC2).
“The Elastic Server factory is bringing a level of automation infrastructure that your average IT department has never had the time or money to take advantage of.”

"The addition the Ubuntu 9.04 and Debian 5.0 operating systems to our ever growing number customization options gives our users increased freedom to create server stacks that work best for them," said Patrick Kerpan, CTO at CohesiveFT. "The Elastic Server factory is bringing a level of automation infrastructure that your average IT department has never had the time or money to take advantage of."
The Elastic Server platform is a complement to virtualization and cloud offerings. Users assemble custom servers by choosing from a library of popular components. Once assembled, these custom application stacks can be configured to a variety of virtualization and cloud-ready formats, downloaded and deployed in real-time. There are over three thousand users of the service who have assembled more than seven thousand Elastic Server images for public and private use. The addition of Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope and Debian Lenny operating systems highlights CohesiveFT’s platform momentum following recently introduced support for Eucalyptus, Fedora Core 10, ElasticHosts, and KVM.
