A long-standing OpenStack® Foundation sponsor, Internap accelerates its OpenStack contributions and cloud platform evolution
ATLANTA – October 25, 2016 – Internap Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a provider of high-performance Internet infrastructure services, today announced a collaboration with the OpenStack Foundation (OSF) as an Infrastructure Donor for the community. Internap will provide cloud resources to the OpenStack Foundation (OSF) to support the automated testing of OpenStack projects. Internap is also participating at the OpenStack Summit, taking place October 25 – 28 in Barcelona, where top game developer CrowdStar will deliver a keynote about its shift to a containerized environment using Internap’s OpenStack-based bare-metal cloud. Internap will also present details about the next phase of its OpenStack expansion for bare-metal cloud services.
The OpenStack Infrastructure Team will utilize Internap’s OpenStack-based cloud services for testing, automation and continuous integration. The OpenStack Infrastructure Team tests each commit twice before it lands in the codebase, which translates to 2,000 tests per hour and more than two million tests during the Newton six-month development cycle. Internap’s contribution provides critical infrastructure at scale to execute these tests and advance software stability and reliability. Internap is one of only four public clouds utilized by the OpenStack Foundation as an “Infrastructure Donor” as a result of its contribution of significant levels of reliable, interoperable cloud resources to the community.
Internap’s long-standing OpenStack commitment, since 2010, marked a major milestone with the launch of its OpenStack-based Agile 2.0 bare-metal cloud platform in October 2015. This platform combines the dedicated processing power of bare-metal servers with the agility of the cloud – along with significant hardware, networking and management advancements – enabling companies to achieve peak application performance and on-demand scalability. In recent months, Agile has expanded the worldwide availability of its Agile cloud services, covering Dallas, Texas; Santa Clara, California; Secaucus, New Jersey; and Amsterdam and Singapore. Built with OpenStack’s upstream code, Internap provides enterprises and DevOps teams access to the latest OpenStack features while also delivering high performance and scale.
“Internap has a long history of supporting OpenStack, and we are excited to now contribute directly to the OpenStack Foundation by delivering OpenStack-based public cloud at scale,” said Satish Hemachandran, senior vice president and general manager, cloud and hosting,
Internap. “Our launch and expansion of OpenStack-based bare-metal cloud services along with our key contributions to existing projects like Almanach, Ironic and Horizon, as well as Internap open-source projects like Netman and PrivateStack, demonstrates our continued commitment to increasing and accelerating open-source cloud adoption.”
“Internap has been an important contributor to the OpenStack community since the earliest days of the project,” said Jonathan Bryce, executive director of the OpenStack Foundation. “Their most recent contribution as an Infrastructure Donor is critical to our Infrastructure Team’s work in making sure that each release of OpenStack is tested and ready. The community is grateful to contributors like Internap, who go the extra mile to help all of us create and deliver an exceptional product to all OpenStack users.”
