Internap Adds OpenStack Public Cloud Location in New York Metro Market
Rapid expansion of next-generation AgileCLOUD positions Internap as a leading OpenStack public cloud provider
ATLANTA – February 3, 2015 – Internap Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a provider of high-performance Internet infrastructure services, today announced the availability of its OpenStack-powered AgileCLOUD at its New York metro area data center in Secaucus, N.J. The expanded footprint marks Internap’s fourth OpenStack public cloud location worldwide since its launch in 2014, providing developers and enterprise customers with one of the most robust, feature-rich OpenStack public cloud platforms. Internap has been an ongoing contributor to the OpenStack project since 2010, amassing deep development expertise.
“As enterprises increasingly adopt OpenStack for private clouds, they require public cloud platforms that provide the same level of interoperability as well as the performance and reliability needed to deploy their mission-critical applications at scale,” said Satish Hemachandran, senior vice president and general manager, cloud and hosting, at Internap. “Every aspect of Internap’s OpenStack-powered AgileCLOUD is optimized for performance – from dedicated compute CPU options to all-SSD storage, route-optimized networking and powerful management tools – and the continued expansion of our footprint means even better reach and faster application performance for customers.”
Opened in early 2014, Internap’s Secaucus facility is a true hybrid data center, offering Internap’s full range of infrastructure services. Customers can seamlessly link AgileCLOUD with bare-metal instances, as well as colocation and managed hosting environments, within the Secaucus facility and across other AgileCLOUD locations to maximize performance, cost-efficiency and control for different applications and workloads. In addition to Secaucus, Internap offers its OpenStack-powered AgileCLOUD out of its Dallas, Montreal and Amsterdam data centers.
AgileCLOUD is a massively scalable public cloud that exposes the native OpenStack API, allowing customers to avoid vendor lock-in and move workloads between disparate cloud environments with minimal development effort. With extensive features designed to deliver the utmost flexibility and the highest levels of application and network performance, key AgileCLOUD highlights include:
- Server performance tiers and custom configuration – Two server tiers match customers’ specific performance requirements, each with configurable memory, CPU and SSD storage options.
- Storage with guaranteed performance – All-SSD local (ephemeral) and networked (persistent) block storage with guaranteed IOPs ensure no “noisy neighbor” effects.
- Cloud network optimization – Internap’s Performance IP™ bandwidth with patented Managed Internet Route Optimizer™ (MIRO) technology delivers consistently higher performance and lower latency to end users when compared to other clouds.
- Flexible Management Options – Multiple AgileCLOUD management options meet various control requirements, from Internap’s OpenStack Horizon management dashboard and access to the native OpenStack API to Internap’s integrated cloud, colocation and hosting customer portal.
