Next-Generation AgileCLOUD Next Gen CloudWe're excited to announce the general availability of our Next Generation Agile Cloud powered by OpenStack. Agile Cloud is Internap's infrastructure and service platform, providing hybridized infrastructure from Dedicated Servers, Bare-Metal Cloud, and Virtual Instances. By introducing OpenStack into the platform, we're creating a more interoperable service that ultimately is more cost effective, more scalable, provides better performance, and is all built on top of Internap's patented route optimization MIRO. By using the OpenStack API, it makes it much easier for our customers to move applications into the Next Generation Agile Cloud, and get the benefits that are not available from other OpenStack clouds. Our Next Generation Agile Cloud has native hybridization, allowing users to use OpenStack to provision new virtual machines, but still have them in the same network environment with other hosting platforms. This gives our customers full interoperability across the platform, allowing you to pick and choose the right application environment for your workload. In addition to native hybridization, common to all the agile product offerings, our new Next Generation Agile Cloud can also be hybridized with other types of hosting platforms, such as manage hosting or even colocation. You can leverage the virtualization layer for your elastic and bursting workloads, while still having your core infrastructure in a hosting environment or colocation. By hybridizing across different platforms you're able to optimize each application's environment so that you can be more cost efficient and ensure the performance you're looking for. Next Generation Agile Cloud customers now have the choice of both local ephemeral storage, and persistent storage, all backed by SSDs for high performance. The persistent storage has QoS, or quality of service controls, to ensure consistent high performance, ensuring that noisy neighbors don't affect your storage IO. in addition to MIRO, Internap's Managed Internet Route Optimizer, we also include universal transfer and integration with Internap CDN, allowing you to mix and match your bandwidth across a multitude of different services.
