/PRNewswire/ -- Cloudscaling, the leading elastic cloud infrastructure company, plans to unveil a major upgrade of its Open Cloud System (OCS) at the OpenStack Summit this week in
. Version 2.0 of OCS will add unique features and production-grade capabilities previously unavailable in any OpenStack-based cloud solution.
Version 2.0 of OCS will be the first elastic cloud solution delivering the agility, performance and economic benefits of leading public cloud providers, but deployable in the customer's datacenter and under their IT team's control.
Additionally, OCS 2.0 will be the first private cloud solution to deliver critical IT management and cloud operations-focused enhancements that transform OpenStack from a technology component into a complete production-grade, scale-engineered, cloud infrastructure system. Key capabilities include on-demand compute, block storage, object storage, networking, scale-out edge, core, and block networking services, private to public cloud integration options, advanced security features, intelligent resource scheduling, cloud topology management, and modular hardware reference designs that speed time to deployment and increase reliability.
New Infrastructure for New Dynamic Applications
Elastic cloud refers to infrastructure that is optimized to support new, dynamic applications such as mobile, web, big data, software/platform-as-a-service and others that can take advantage of on-demand compute, storage and networking. Dynamic applications are self-managing, resilient to failure and designed to take advantage of on-demand scale-out capabilities in elastic clouds.
Elastic clouds are open, flexible and deliver exceptional economics for not only deploying and managing cloud applications, but also efficiently scaling them. Elastic clouds move beyond complex enterprise virtualization (such as VMware-powered infrastructure) to deliver agile infrastructure ideally suited to the demands and requirements of dynamic cloud applications. The most widely known examples of elastic clouds are public providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Compute Engine (GCE).
