International hybrid hosting and data center solutions provider CentriLogic today enhanced it’s International multi-zone Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) Cloud offering; providing organizations with elastic and on-demand computing infrastructure featuring multiple cross-border availability zones provisioned from CentriLogic’s owned and operated data centers in Canada and the United States.
An evolution of CentriLogic’s Canadian-based distributed cloud computing service that was launched in early 2010, CentriLogic’s new International IaaS cloud will support organizations with enterprise-class workloads and addresses cross-border regulatory and compliance concerns arising from legislation including PIPEDA and the US Patriot Act.
– Robert Offley, CEO, CentriLogic.
“CentriLogic’s enterprise-class cloud offering places us in a unique position relative to existing webscale cloud services from providers like Amazon and Rackspace due to its hybrid hosting and cross-border capabilities. Our hybrid approach addresses requirements from new and existing customers to combine cloud services with existing physical hosting environments within our international data centers, ensuring a smooth migration of their enterprise-class workloads to the cloud,” said Mr. Robert Offley, CEO, CentriLogic.
A provider of hybrid hosting solutions, CentriLogic combines elements of physical hosting, virtual hosting, and managed services to construct a specific solution driven by an organization’s application and workload requirements. CentriLogic facilitates the transition to cloud by providing a flexible hybrid hosting environment whereby customers can connect their current hosting infrastructure to the CentriLogic cloud within the same data center.
Deployed on Citrix CloudPlatform, CentriLogic’s international cloud solution is powered by Apache Cloudstack, and provides customers with on-demand, self-service computing capabilities via a custom web portal and robust web-based API. Customers can launch virtual machine instances running Windows and Linux, with the added flexibility of creating custom OS templates. Customers can also select from a list of geographically-bound availability zones located within CentriLogic’s Canadian and US data centers, ensuring that their data does not reside outside of a specific privacy jurisdiction.
CentriLogic’s Canadian and US cloud availability zones are now available to customers. For more details, visit centrilogic.com.
