Internap Offers OpenStack Automated Bare-Metal Instances

Internap announced a new bare-metal service on the OpenStack platform that provides a high-performance IaaS option for devops teams to deploy mission-critical applications and big-data workloads on OpenStack.


Specifically, the initial release lets customers instantly provision and manage bare-metal instances, choosing from a range of server options that can be hybridized with Internap’s AgileCLOUD public cloud instances through the OpenStack Horizon management dashboard. The release features additional networking capabilities like IPMI, NIC bonding and up to 10 VLANs per environment, allowing customers to more efficiently deploy and support complex server and OS clustering use cases without needing to use more expensive hardware solutions.

In addition, Internap is now supporting OpenStack interoperability and identity federation, helping customers to move workloads securely and seamlessly across public and private clouds.

“We’re committed to enabling easy adoption of OpenStack for public and private clouds. With Internap’s new bare-metal servers on OpenStack, customers running data-intensive applications and workloads benefit from increased choice in deploying applications on virtual or dedicated server instances to meet their performance needs,” said Satish Hemachandran, senior vice president and general manager, cloud and hosting, at Internap. “Our OpenStack interoperability certification and the identity federation development will deliver on our vision of a seamless customer experience based on open standards.”
