New release enables service providers to offer hybrid clouds – integrating management of bare metal servers and virtual servers into a single control panel
HostingCon, Austin, TX – June 17, 2013: OnApp has announced OnApp Cloud v3.1, the latest version of the leading cloud platform for service providers. OnApp Cloud v3.1 enables service providers to offer customers true hybrid cloud services, extending their public and private clouds to include dedicated smart servers and bare metal servers, all managed through the OnApp control panel. It also introduces recipes and blueprints: two new ways to automate cloud service provisioning, from tweaking the configuration of a single virtual machine, to deploying ready-to-run application stacks on a mix of dedicated servers and cloud infrastructure.
Together, these features expand the range of services that OnApp Cloud can be used to provide, and bring OnApp's cloud orchestration and management capabilities to more of the datacenter. They enable customers to deploy their apps and data on the best server for the job, dedicated or virtualized; enhance traditional dedicated servers with cloud features like autoscaling and failover; and enable service providers and their customers to manage a mix of public, private, hybrid cloud and dedicated servers through one easy-to-use control panel.
“Service providers have to change from thinking about the cloud as another silo of infrastructure, to thinking about the value of their infrastructure as a whole,” said OnApp CEO, Ditlev Bredahl. “With OnApp you can put workloads where it makes sense to put them – on bare metal, on a smart server or in a public or private cloud. You get a single pane of glass into the different services running across your infrastructure, and so do your customers. It’s how everyone gets the most out of legacy and cloud hosting.”
The highlight features of OnApp Cloud v3.1 include:
Other additions to OnApp Cloud include provisioning and UI enhancements, and more options for billing based on zones, which service providers can use to group different types of infrastructure for public, private, smart server or bare metal services. OnApp CDN now has the ability to manage multiple CDN edge server locations from a single control panel server.
OnApp Cloud v3.1 is a free upgrade for existing OnApp Cloud customers, and will be available in the summer. Pricing for cloud servers remains the same as the current version of OnApp Cloud, with a monthly fee per core and per cloud. Bare metal servers and smart servers will be priced per server per month. Prices will be announced shortly.
