(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Cloud.com, a leader in open source cloud computing software, today announced that Colocube, LLC, a global enterprise and private cloud hosting solutions provider, is using the company’s flagship product, CloudStack™, for its carrier-neutral Enterprise Cloud and Private Cloud offerings. Colocube solutions utilize platforms by Citrix and VMware coupled with a web-based Cloud Management Console that provides a high level of control in the cloud environment. Cloud.com was chosen by Colocube due to its ability to easily integrate into any environment to meet customers’ performance and security requirements.
“At Colocube we are focused on enterprise cloud and private cloud solutions that offer organizations a monthly Opex alternative to having to build and maintain a pricey infrastructure with loads of new equipment, IT management resources, and expenses for rack space, power, software licenses and bandwidth. This translates into direct savings for our customers and allows them to focus on their applications,” said Fred Tanzella, CEO of Colocube. “At the same time, security is Colocube’s top priority and a critical component for any enterprise-class cloud. Cloud.com CloudStack delivers the perfect combination of security, high-performance features and flexibility that allow us to meet the rapidly evolving capacity requirements of the cloud.”
Colocube’s cloud offerings are carrier-neutral, allowing customers to bring in their own circuits, and monitored by third-party Internet security firms. Colocube supplies high-availability (HA) enterprise cloud and private cloud hosting services to a broad range of industries, and its vendor-neutral cloud environment can be customized to meet each customer’s application requirements. The company recently joined Platform Equinix to reach Equinix’s customer base in more than 35 strategic markets across 11 countries in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific, and enable Equinix customers to directly connect to Colocube through a simple cross-connect.
“We are excited about the opportunity to work with Colocube to help them create compelling cloud offerings using CloudStack. By providing a comprehensive cloud management console, Colocube’s customers can manage their VMs without having to understand the complexities of the underlying hypervisor,” said Sheng Liang, CEO at Cloud.com. “We are anticipating their technology to continue its success in providing groundbreaking cloud hosting offerings.”
