Starting today, Atomia customers can choose to have their OpenStack clouds fully built and managed by Canonical (via their BootStack service).
The Atomia cloud hosting platform has embraced OpenStack to enable our customers, usually hosting companies and telcos, to provide state-of-the-art cloud services. The OpenStack project is open source at its best; a well-supported, powerful, modular software platform for creating both private and public clouds. It has become a de facto industry standard.
Atomia customers normally manage their own OpenStack environment and servers. However, not everyone will have in-house OpenStack expertise, or wish to allocate the staff needed for ongoing maintenance. That is why we are very pleased to announce this partnership with Canonical. It significantly lowers the barrier of entry.
Next week it’s time for the OpenStack Summit in Paris. Several of us from Atomia will be attending, so don’t hesitate to track us down and have a chat. We’ll be there Monday–Wednesday, i.e. November 3–5, enjoying the company of our industry peers.
October has been a busy month full of hosting industry events, and it’s not over yet. WorldHostingDays have just a couple of WHD.local events left before the month is over, and Atomia will be present at both.
There are several interesting hosting industry events coming up this month. We will have people on the ground, so if you see anyone from Atomia, don’t hesitate to say hello. We’re a friendly bunch and would love to meet you.
