PASADENA, Calif. – February 18, 2014 – Metacloud, Inc., a leader in deploying and operating OpenStack as a service for some of the world’s largest companies, today launched Metacloud Hosted Private Cloud, a turn-key solution that bundles the company’s powerful OpenStack-based cloud platform and expert support with global hosting, hardware, and networking technology to deliver the security, performance, and economic benefits of a private cloud with the on-demand provisioning of the public cloud.
The solution features secure, hosted infrastructure, a multi-tenant cloud platform, dedicated high-performance hardware, redundant block storage, on-demand provisioning, and 24×7 cloud operations, with five hosting locations to choose from–including international sites. It was designed for the growing number of companies that are showing enthusiasm for dedicated private cloud solutions, but are not interested in either building or managing their own on-premises private cloud.
“Metacloud’s Hosted Private Cloud is a natural extension of our current on-premises offering. It leverages the same enhanced version of OpenStack that we’ve deployed for our on-prem clients, and it is supported by the same team of accomplished cloud engineers,” said Steve Curry, co-founder and President, Metacloud. “The difference is that Hosted Private Cloud allows you to access the versatility and power of OpenStack without having to own a single server–or maintain your own data center. Everything you need is included. Just pick a location, then grow when you need to. And here’s the best part: you get white glove service, SLAs with teeth, and better performance, delivered on hardware dedicated to you–at a significant discount compared to existing public cloud options.”
“This product is a no-brainer for companies seeking a hybrid solution that delivers a consistent experience both on-prem and off. It’s ideal for disaster recovery as well as for companies that have routine spikes in usage,” said Sean Lynch, co-founder and CEO, Metacloud. “Our existing on-prem private cloud clients have been asking for a complimentary hosted solution, and we’re happy to be able to provide that for them.”
The solution is available immediately through Metacloud’s Hosted Private Cloud Early Access Program. Starter packages and custom solutions are available.
