Internap has made its OpenStack-based public cloud services, called AgileCloud, available in the New York metro region. Hosted in the company’s new Secaucus, New Jersey, data center, it is the fourth location of the cloud launched in 2014.
Internap isn’t as much after the public cloud market as it is after the hybrid cloud opportunity. The OpenStack public cloud is a complement to private cloud deployments. Customers can seamlessly link it public cloud with private bare-metal instances they rent from the provider, or their colocation and managed hosting environments in the provider’s data centers.
Internap services run the gamut, so customers can choose the right setup for the right workloads through one provider, depending on performance, and their economic and technical needs.
