Atomia co-founder Mladen Stojanovic is a hosting industry veteran and a huge fan of OpenStack. He recently held a well-received talk at World Hosting Days, a popular conference for the web hosting industry. The subject? OpenStack, of course!
OpenStack Kilo is the 11th release of OpenStack, the powerful open source cloud software that we leverage for Atomia’s cloud hosting features. Among other things, our software platform adds billing and hosting automation to OpenStack, making it possible to effectively sell OpenStack-based public cloud services such as VPS and online storage.
Atomia makes it easy for you to sell cloud services on top of OpenStack, a powerful open source cloud hosting software. You can run Atomia on your own infrastructure, but we recently partnered with Canonical to give you the option to have a fully managed OpenStack cloud to run your hosting business on. It can be a very convenient alternative for many companies to get up and running quickly.
We are proud to announce Atomia 15.3, the latest major release of our cloud hosting platform. This version of Atomia will take your ability to provide cutting-edge cloud hosting services to a new high.
Here are the highlights.
You can run Atomia on your own infrastructure, but you may remember that we recently partnered with Canonical to give you the option to also have a fully managed OpenStack cloud to run your hosting business on. It can be a very convenient alternative for many companies.
Now on February 17 it’s time for an OpenStack webinar.
In other words, Atomia just got even better.
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.
The Q3 release of OpenStack, aka Diablo, introduced some long-awaited features (full release notes). This means that a new version of Atomia VPS Manager is to be expected.
