Internap's OpenStack Public Cloud Adds Mgt, Orchestration, Auto-Scaling

Internap enhanced its public, OpenStack-powered, "AgileCLOUD" with OpenStack Glance image management functionality and Heat orchestration and auto-scaling capabilities.

Glance’s image management capabilities facilitate interoperability between service providers and platforms. Internap customers can use Glance to quickly import disk images from other service providers onto AgileCLOUD and also move disk images from AgileCLOUD to other cloud or virtualized environments. Glance also gives users the ability to create and save custom server images from Internap base images, allowing engineers to provision customized server images more effectively and rapidly.

Heat auto-scaling capabilities let DevOps teams define additional rules for automatically provisioning new instances and terminating instances based on criteria such as CPU load or bandwidth traffic changes.

“As market demand increases for public cloud services to power performance-centric Web applications – from SaaS platforms to e-commerce sites – we’re seeing the engineering and DevOps teams responsible for keeping these applications up and running seek more effective and efficient ways to scale, customize and manage their infrastructure environments,” said Satish Hemachandran, senior vice president and general manager, cloud and hosting, at Internap. “By adding support for OpenStack Glance and Heat to our public cloud, we’re giving customers optimal control for their applications as well as powerful orchestration and auto-scaling capabilities needed to meet growing user demand.”

Both Glance and Heat are immediately available out of Internap’s Secaucus, N.J. and Dallas data centers, and will be rolled out in Internap’s Amsterdam facility at the end of July.
