Frost & Sullivan recognizes Internap for bare-metal leadership
Frost & Sullivan honored Internap with the 2014 North American Cloud Services: Competitive Strategy Innovation and Leadership Award for best practices in the cloud services market. We appreciate the recognition, and are proud to be one of the few providers to offer this non-virtualized cloud solution.
Additionally, the Frost & Sullivan report on bare-metal clouds by Lynda Stadtmueller focuses on Internap as one of only two leading providers of the solution. The report is a great introduction to bare-metal cloud, and discusses the pros and cons of virtualization along with the increasing demand for bare metal as a “scaleable, cost-efficient way to run high-performance workloads.” The price performance benefits of bare-metal cloud help big data apps achieve better performance and cost-at-scale.
