American Business Awards 2015Internap was honored to receive a Bronze Stevie® Award in the cloud infrastructure category for AgileCLOUD, a massively scalable OpenStack-powered public cloud solution.

AgileCLOUD is empowering the OpenStack developer community with access to high-performance open source cloud platforms as well as powerful management tools. Horizon, the official management dashboard for OpenStack, offers a web-based user interface to OpenStack services.

One of only a handful of OpenStack cloud providers to expose the native Horizon console, Internap offers direct access to advanced OpenStack management functions. Access to the native API gives customers the ability to avoid vendor lock-in and move workloads between disparate cloud environments with minimal development effort. The Horizon dashboard allows developers to use an open and standardized interface with which they are already familiar, and gain access to the latest features from the open source community.

The 2015 American Business Awards marks the third consecutive year that Internap has been recognized. In 2014, the fast big data solution provided by Internap and Aerospike was honored with a Bronze Stevie award. Internap received a Gold Stevie award in 2013 for its hybridized virtual and bare-metal cloud service.
