With 100% uptime SLA, the global Performance IP network ensures access to cloud services
Intelligent IT Infrastructure services provider Internap Network Services has introduced public cloud compute service based on the OpenStack open source platform.
To meet changing web and application demands, Internap’s Open Public Cloud compute service delivers high-performance, on-demand provisioning and scaling of enterprise computing capacity.
The Open Public Cloud complements Internap’s Custom Public Cloud, a VMware-based compute cloud which delivers flexibility for customers and these public cloud compute offerings build on Internap’s private cloud services and its recently introduced cloud storage service, also based on OpenStack.
With a 100% uptime SLA, Internap’s global Performance IP network is fully-integrated with its cloud services, ensures access and an optimised experience for end users.
Internap’s Enterprise Public Cloud Offering portfolio includes: Open Public Cloud and Custom Public Cloud.
Open Public Cloud is a highly-scalable, cost-effective public cloud with an easy-to-use management interface and APIs that can meet dynamic capacity needs on demand and the offering is based on the OpenStack platform and this service leverages the low-cost, open source Xen Cloud Platform.
Custom Public Cloud is a "pay-as-you-go" public cloud. By leveraging the VMware platform the Custom Public Cloud speeds adoption and delivery. With VMware’s vCloud Director portal, customers can architect tailored cloud configurations and create customised network configurations on demand.
Internap Product Management and Business Development senior vice-president Paul Carmody said as an active member of the OpenStack open source community and a provider of VMware vCloud Powered services, Internap offers enterprises maximum flexibility with public cloud, private cloud and a scalable cloud storage service.
This allows customers to ‘future-proof’ cloud investments, moving from one cloud platform to another or using a hybrid approach as priorities and business needs evolve," said Carmody.
