Red Cloud Secure offers secure virtual servers and associated on-demand storage within a virtual private cloud (VPC) Because charges are only made for resources used, the service is a streamlined alternative to purchasing and maintaining separate and usually  more costly infrastructure. 

In minutes, you can deploy hosts with 1-24 cores, 8 GB/core RAM, and multiple TB of disk, including separate volumes accessible to hosts within the VPC Additionally, you can seamlessly scale to Amazon Web Services if your usage outgrows the capacity of Red Cloud Secure.
