The enhanced version of Open Cloud System includes OpenStack Folsom support and new elastic block storage, a network disk solution that gives persistent, expandable and elastic block-level storage volumes. These volumes can be attached to a running instance and exposed as a device within the instance.
OCS Block Storage provides persistent and expandable block level storage volumes served up by independent loosely-coupled block storage nodes. It offers same benefits as AWS Elastic Block Storage (EBS).
Speaking more about this new enhanced OCS, Michael Grant, CEO of Cloudscaling said, “Enterprise organizations across industries, web application providers and service providers increasingly are asking for a private elastic cloud infrastructure solution to support new applications in order to modernize their infrastructure, as a production-grade elastic cloud solution, Open Cloud System is positioned to capitalize on this trend.”
The company has reported an increase in sales activity since the October’12 unveiling of version 2.0. The company is also expanding its executive team to look after the direct sales, channels, engineering and product management activity.
Randy Bias, co-founder and CTO of Cloudscaling added, “As far as we are aware, we’re the only company to ship an elastic cloud infrastructure software solution built on OpenStack technology for public or private deployments.”
An early, public supporter of OpenStack, Cloudscaling has developed elastic cloud deployments for KT, Internap and others.
