Internap Expands On-Demand Bare-Metal Cloud Service to London and Hong Kong
Extension of global footprint meets increasing demand for high-performance public cloud
ATLANTA – July 2, 2014 ─ Internap Network Services Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a provider of high-performance Internet infrastructure services, today announced that its bare-metal public cloud is now available from its London and Hong Kong data centers. Internap’s expanded bare-metal cloud footprint – which includes existing locations in Amsterdam, Singapore, Dallas, New York Metro and Santa Clara, California – addresses growing demand for cloud services that can meet the high-performance requirements of globally distributed, real-time, data-intensive applications, like big data analytics, mobile and digital advertising and online gaming.
As more organizations run analytics and other “fast data” applications in the cloud, performance issues can arise due to numerous tenants and tasks competing for shared resources. In a recent Internap survey of nearly 250 infrastructure decision makers, 59 percent of those hosting big data applications in the cloud cited performance challenges. Bare-metal public cloud can replace or complement traditional virtualized cloud environments to better meet the needs of performance-centric workloads. Internap’s AgileCLOUD bare-metal cloud combines the elasticity, instant provisioning and pay-as-you-go model of a virtual cloud with the performance of dedicated servers, delivering faster and more consistent throughput and processing, as well as a more efficient price:performance balance – with up to 34 percent cost savings over nominal virtual equivalents.
“Organizations deploying real-time, data-intensive applications are increasingly seeking cloud services that provide flawless performance, reliability and cost efficiency across globally distributed environments,” said Christian Primeau, senior vice president and general manager of cloud and hosting at Internap. “Our bare-metal cloud uniquely addresses these demands, and the addition of our London and Hong Kong locations delivers broader reach in key end user markets.”
Internap’s bare-metal cloud is underpinned by its global Performance IP™ connectivity with patented Managed Internet Route Optimizer™ (MIRO) technology. By continually analyzing Internet performance characteristics – including jitter, latency and packet loss – MIRO dynamically routes customer traffic over the best available path more than 99 percent of the time. The result is fast, consistent performance for cloud applications and workloads.
