Cloudscaling Announces Industry’s First Open Cloud System Designed for Cloud-Ready Applications

February 14, 2012 by  

Web Hosting ServicesSAN FRANCISCO — Cloudscaling has announced the industry’s first open cloud infrastructure solution for cloud-ready applications. The Cloudscaling Open Cloud System (OCS) is the first infrastructure-as-a-service solution designed to deliver the cost, performance and scalability benefits of Amazon Web Services (AWS), for private or public clouds.

The Cloudscaling OCS is based on the OpenStack open source project and leverages the company’s expertise from production OpenStack software deployments at companies such as KT (formerly Korea Telecom) and Internap. Cloudscaling has more production OpenStack experience than any other company.

Open clouds eliminate vendor lock-in, proprietary protocols, closed hardware platforms and excessive enterprise licensing fees sometimes referred to as “software taxation.” These advances are made possible through the use of open hardware, open networking, open APIs and open source software. Cloud-ready applications are those that are designed to take advantage of the economics and agility achievable by using open cloud infrastructure. These applications differ fundamentally from traditional applications in that they are more elastic in nature and support higher peak loads. Cloud-ready applications manage failure in software as opposed to hardware, eliminating typical enterprise application dependencies on expensive and proprietary infrastructure solutions.

“Cloudscaling OCS is our answer to customers who are telling us that they want public and private cloud infrastructure that’s specifically designed to support the cloud-ready applications they’re building,” said Michael Grant, CEO of Cloudscaling. “They want the freedom that comes with an open infrastructure architecture, and that’s what Cloudscaling OCS delivers.”

Cloudscaling OCS has three core components Open Cloud OS, hardware blueprints and CloudBlocks ™.

“The market is demanding supported, production-centric, OpenStack solutions. Cloudscaling is focused on delivering enterprise-ready cloud infrastructure to meet that demand,” said Randy Bias, co-founder and CTO of Cloudscaling. “Our timing is ideal, as our customers are finding that traditional enterprise cloud approaches are not well-suited for next-generation, cloud-ready apps. Cloudscaling OCS is a production-grade, open cloud system that gives enterprises their own scalable and elastic infrastructure to support like-minded applications.”
