“This service would not have been technologically possible even 12 months ago.When we looked at the market we couldn’t find a cloud that met all our customers needs,” said Mike Gero, Director, Product Management, iWeb.
The OpenStack infrastructure coupled with iWeb’s network and use of SSD drives will delivered an enhanced quality of service, as per Mr. Mike.
“ By engineering this cloud with the best vendors and technologies, we are delivering something I am sure customers will enjoy and competitors will envy. We truly believe this will meet our customer’s performance, availability and support requirements. Due to our use of SSD drives our standard disk performance is on average 2x that of other Cloud providers and the security of customer data is maintained with data replication and redundancy,” he added.
Provisioned on a QoS-enabled centralized block storage engineered exclusively with SSD drives, the new managed Cloud service leverages iWeb’s network network and “Grizzly”, the most up-to-date version of Openstack.
While the initial deployments of the service are fully-managed solutions built with the latest generation of processors, memory and CentOS Linux, iWeb plans to roll out additional services with a robust application-programming interface and other features in Q3 and Q4 of 2013.
“This is the cloud that our customers have asked for and our staff has been very excited to develop, test and now deploy. It removes all the barriers for customers wishing to upgrade to a Cloud infrastructure, ” said Mr. Christian Primeau, President and COO, iWeb.
“Reliability is built into iWeb’s DNA and this Cloud guarantees superior performance without sacrificing reliability. We are extremely proud of what we have built and pleased to bring it to the market,” he added.
