IKOULA, which was founded in 1998, is the first green web-hosting services provider of its kind, offering environmentally conscious solutions in the Cloud (both public and private). The company’s diversified and flexible range of services meets the needs of both SMEs and larger groups.
IKOULA’s Express formula, now available in the UK, offers packaged and flexible solutions that are adapted to client requirements and purchasable online. The newly launched website, in English, can process payments in pounds sterling, making IKOULA’s services directly accessible to UK-based client entities.
IKOULA offers several key solutions for data hosting and storage.
• iKeepinCloud is IKOULA’s innovative online, open-source data-storage solution intended for professional end-users. This solution offers unlimited storage and 10 Mbps speed with unlimited file size, at a cost to the user of only £17.99 per month.
Accessible via seven different communication protocols, iKeepinCloud requires no specific software to be installed in order to run, while providing maximum interactivity with a large number of additional third-party software programs from any PC, Mac, Linux device, tablet or Smartphone.
IKOULA stresses the fact that all parameters are taken into account in this offering, which has been designed to meet the changing needs of end-users across the board.

• VM for £1.00, for its part, is ideal for one-off operations and projects, such as the organisation of an event, a specific marketing campaign, a web-based competition, or an electronic game.
IKOULA offers a unique, on-demand Cloud solution — a Virtual Machine (VM) at a cost of only £1.00. Totally flexible and scalable, this offer can be extended over the chosen period of time and reach a ‘standard’ maturity size.
IKOULA has designed this technology so that it represents a self-governing and 100% dynamic machine, providing its customers with maximum flexibility and elasticity in the consumption of their resources. This solution is based on Microsoft Hyper-V technology for full automation of the machine.
Jules-Henri Gavetti, CEO of IKOULA, points out that, “It is the product that has got off to the best start commercially, at IKOULA, since we launched our VM for £1.00.”
In 2011, at the Microsoft Hosting Summit, IKOULA won the award for Best Cloud Solution Hyper-V with its Cloud-based offer of a VM for €1.00 (for further details, please go to: http://express.ikoula.co.uk/vm).
• Last but not least, www.Ex10.biz/en is a selling interface for messaging and communication services.
This white-label managed platform allows resellers to invoice customers on a pay-as-you-go basis. The pricing of services varies, depending on which options — ActiveSync, Blackberry or Outlook licences — are chosen by the client.
Resellers enjoy free access to the Ex10.biz interface under a white-label arrangement and without committing to any length of usage. In turn, this allows them to charge very low prices, which gives them a competitive advantage.
Ex10.biz can run without there being any need for the client entity to set up (and pay for) an Exchange server within the company. The Ex10.biz platform is hosted in France and supervised 24/7 by IKOULA’s on-site team, which guarantees continuity of service, together with high levels of safety and security.
Founded in 1998, IKOULA is a leading French-based hosting company, headquartered in Boulogne, on the outskirts of Paris.
The company owns its own data centre in Reims (also spelt Rheims, in northern France), which hosts more than 5,000 servers and 8,000 virtual machines (VMs). A pioneer in green hosting, IKOULA places innovation, simplicity and customer satisfaction at the heart of its solutions and services.
IKOULA develops Public and Private Cloud solutions: the Express division is dedicated to small businesses seeking packaged, flexible and readily available solutions online; the Enterprise Services (IES) division, for its part, offers a range of tailored value-added services for SMEs and larger accounts that seek secure customized solutions.
