IBS DataFort Chooses OpenStack-Based Open Cloud System for Public Elastic Cloud Infrastructure Deployment

San Francisco, California, Feb 28, 2013 ( via COMTEX) -- Cloudscaling, the leading elastic cloud infrastructure software company, today announced that IBS DataFort has selected the company's Open Cloud System to build its public cloud service.

IBS DataFort will deploy Open Cloud System in two clouds. The first is a dev/test environment for internal use. The second is a production, public cloud environment supporting the company's customers in the Russian Federation. Both clouds will offer object storage and compute initially, with OCS Block Storage to be added later.

"The momentum we're seeing is a direct reflection of the fact that customers want an elastic cloud infrastructure based on OpenStack technology," said Michael Grant. "But they don't want to build their own OpenStack-based cloud where they alone are responsible for maintenance and support. They want a production-grade product that's supported by a community of users, and we're the first company to deliver that with Open Cloud System." Cloudscaling was one of the founding community members and an early, public supporter of OpenStack. The company is a charter Gold Corporate Sponsor of the OpenStack Foundation, and co-founder Randy Bias has served on the board since its formation. Cloudscaling is a top-ten code contributor, including ZeroMQ messaging, RPC abstraction layer, APIs for Google Compute Engine and security improvements.

About Cloudscaling Cloudscaling is the leading elastic cloud infrastructure company, delivering production-grade cloud software for on-premise Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). The company's core product, Open Cloud System (OCS), is powered by OpenStack and designed to meet the requirements of next-generation dynamic applications. OCS delivers the agility, performance and economic benefits of leading public cloud providers, but deployable in the customer's data center and under the IT team's control. Cloudscaling is backed by Trinity Ventures and headquartered in San Francisco. More information and resources available at Read the full story at
