MONTREAL, Oct. 23, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - With the launch of its new iWeb
Cloud Servers, Canadian infrastructure as a service (IaaS) leader iWeb
has become the first in the industry to offer scalable pay-per-use
cloud servers with proven, guaranteed performance stability, QoS and
the rapid innovation of OpenStack cloud computing.
Businesses, developers and service providers who depend on the
flexibility of cloud hosting can now enjoy it without the 'noisy
neighbor' effect that has traditionally been a symptom of public cloud
infrastructures. Two months' beta testing has proven iWeb Cloud Servers
to provide consistent performance, regardless of workload spikes, and
without any impact from other tenants. It's an achievement that's as
much down to iWeb's vision of ending the 'cloud compromise' as it is to
the iWeb Cloud's advanced technologies, as iWeb's Chief Technology
Officer Cyrille Mertes explains:
"For all the technological superiority of the iWeb Cloud, it's actually
understanding what people want from cloud hosting that has made this
service different right from the get go", explains Cyrille. "We looked
around the market and asked ourselves, what do customers dream of
getting from cloud services? The answer was even more of the
flexibility and efficiency that makes cloud hosting great, without the
compromise of unpredictable performance and local storage
iWeb's vision was realised thanks to cloud engineering that combines
OpenStack - open source cloud computing software innovated by over
12,000 developers - and SolidFire all SSD centralized storage that
provides guaranteed QoS and burstable disk speeds for linear,
predictable server performance as workloads change. The picture is
completed by iWeb's Canada-based 24/7 support and its Control Center
interface, where servers can be deployed and deleted instantly, and
where CPU/RAM and storage can be scaled independently of one another -
another of the iWeb Cloud's 'dream' features.
"The last five years have seen amazing advancements in cloud computing"
noted iWeb President Christian Primeau, explaining what makes iWeb
Cloud Servers stand out from the crowd. "Cloud hosting offers
flexibility and efficiency, but people also need to have confidence in
their hosting partner. Until now you had to choose one or the other,
but with the iWeb Cloud that's not the case. If you want scalable
pay-per-use servers, you can have it, and then some. iWeb Cloud Servers
have independently scalable resources and all SSD storage that's twice
as fast as other clouds, and they also offer rock-solid performance
consistency that's clearly there to see in your user experience".
"We think that's real value, and a really important evolution for cloud
hosting. We're proud to have built the most reliable and advanced cloud
in our industry, and we're proud to have done it here at iWeb,
concludes Mr. Primeau.
