Superb Internet and OnApp Launch Turn-Key CloudPOD Service to Accelerate Cloud Services Provisioning
Superb’s new OnApp CloudPOD packages deliver out-of-the-box highly scalable IaaS cloud services, backed by its coast-to-coast IP backbone and data centers.
Superb Internet is pleased to announce that, in partnership with OnApp, any web host or organization can now easily and quickly build their own Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud. Utilizing the unique CloudPOD technologies from OnApp, Superb Internet and SuperMicro is the perfect combination of simple yet powerful management, and, exclusive to Superb Internet, with cost-effective InfiniBand network performance that is 40x faster than Gigabit Ethernet,and offers many fold lower latency than Ethernet, for truly unsurpassed performance.
Traditionally for a service provide to develop their own cloud platform, particularly one that is geographically distributed, would be extremely complex, time consuming and costly. Building out the right combination of hardware, infrastructure, connectivity and cloud software; not to mention finding the right data centers and network to partner with, was, to say the least, daunting, if not impossible, for many providers.
According to Superb Internet’s SVP of Marketing, Curtis R. Curtis, “Now thanks to the sophisticated CloudPOD offering from Superb Internet, that combines the unique OnApp cloud platform with Superb’s powerful IaaS infrastructure, worldwide exclusive rights to the cutting edge 10 Gigabit Ethernet surpassing InfiniBand technology, and industry-leading high availability coast-to-coast IP backbone, service provides can significantly accelerate their delivery of cloud services, no longer losing out to other larger providers that were able to build their own cloud services.”
Superb’s OnApp CloudPOD IaaS service offers service providers with such benefits as a fast , proven way to bring cloud hosting to their customers, beat their competitors using obsolete and costly centralized storage technology thanks to OnApp’s highly efficient distributed storage running on Superb’s exclusive InfiniBand network which greatly outperforms 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and to be live and selling services with pay-as-you-go or plan-based billing in as little as three days. The Superb CloudPOD service is backed by the very best high availability SLA in the industry, where the 100% uptime and zero packet loss is not only guaranteed, but actually delivered. Even the most demanding enterprise and government client base will have all of its compliance needs met due to Superb’s comprehensive certifications, compliances and audits, which include not only SSAE-16 (SOC-1), PCI-DSS and ITIL, but also the most sought-after International certifications: ISO 27001:2013 (Information Security Management) & ISO 9001:2008 (Quality Management). Best of all, Superb’s unique lease-to-own model, as opposed to the typical “rent forever” model practiced by the competition, saves its customers up to 80% per month starting in their second year, as its lease-to-own customers only pay the colocation fees second year and on, when they own the hardware leased.
"For cloud service providers who don't want to build, host and run their own platform, the Superb Internet CloudPOD packages are a great way to get to market fast," said Kosten Metreweli, OnApp's Chief Commercial Officer. "By combining InfiniBand networking technology with OnApp's Integrated Storage, the Superb CloudPOD strikes the right balance between ultra high performance storage and affordability - and with a lease-to-own hardware model, provides even more flexibility for cloud providers on the infrastructure side."
Now in just a matter of days a service provider can beat its competitors in cloud performance and resilience, utilizing OnApp Storage for modern single-point-of-failure-free and cost efficient distributed storage running on the superior 40 Gb/s InfiniBand technology, while delivering superior performance to competitors’ centralized storage/SAN (yesterday’s technology) based clouds, all alongisde being able to deliver better, more cost effective cloud solutions. Combined with easy incremental growth and expandability is no ceiling or limitation as to how big one can grow. No deployment, setup or integration required; everything is taken care of, with support included.
