VEXXHOST is happy to announce the revamp of our current private cloud offering! We have taken it upon ourselves to expand our original solution in order to better serve our users, providing them with an all-encompassing, fully managed, flexible, and customizable solution.
When selecting a cloud provider it’s important to take into account not just current needs but any potential future needs as well. In doing so, the need to change providers won’t be influenced by their limitations or by having outgrown their offering. This update to VEXXHOST’s private cloud offering was made with that particular user struggle in mind, be it for a first-time buyer or for a user coming from another vendor.
“One of the main features that will be made available to new and existing users is the ability to have virtual machines, bare-metal and containers operating all on the same environment. This addition is something VEXXHOST is very proud of as it not only addresses some of the roadblocks users face in finding a suitable provider, but also sets us apart from most other vendors,” says CEO, Mohammed Naser.
Users will also benefit from VEXXHOST’s multiple deployment models, where we can provide a secure, hosted private cloud, take care of setting up your private cloud on-premise, or even offer a hybrid cloud to account for and support any of your fluctuating workloads.
Open Source Advantages
Another feature of VEXXHOST’s private cloud upgrade is that it will provide users access to multiple architecture options, be it Intel or Arm, as well as access to enterprise-grade GPUs and customizable hardware specifications. In addition, one of the many benefits of VEXXHOST using OpenStack is that all of the drivers are readily available for any of the existing hardware you may be using, ensuring that none of that investment goes to waste. Moreover, with our offering being based on open-source infrastructure, we’re able to not only maintain competitive pricing but also ensure that our solutions are cost effective.
“Making the consumption of advanced, open infrastructure easier is important for application developers who want to focus on delivering value further up the stack,” said Heidi Bretz, Director of Worldwide Business Development and Alliances for the OpenStack Foundation. “VEXXHOST is continually expanding the capabilities of its service offerings to deliver the latest set of features, and their team’s enthusiastic engagement with the open infrastructure community sets an example for how service providers can make products powered by open source technologies deliver real value for end users.”
One of the latest additions to our offering is Certified Kubernetes. VEXXHOST supports the deployment of our Kubernetes through the use of OpenStack’s Magnum project and is certified by the CNCF since early December of 2018. A key feature of our private cloud update is that all upgrades to the latest OpenStack releases and any project updates are included in our service.
“We’re always happy to see CNCF members, like VEXXHOST, be so passionate about delivering improved cloud native experiences for end users. This commitment to the community and drive for innovation are integral to our growing ecosystem,” said Dan Kohn, executive director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.
With VEXXHOST’s private cloud revamp, users can also take advantage of our OpenStack consulting services. This includes determining what your needs are and what OpenStack projects best fit into your overall strategy. As an extension of this service, VEXXHOST can also help you design a cloud that functions specifically for your use cases. For example, we can deploy high-performance CPUs for CI workloads, or large memory for big data workloads.
VEXXHOST also includes full, actionable monitoring with our private cloud offering update. This means that every 5 minutes a report verifies the functionality of your system. However, we believe in taking preventative measures as well and have built everything to be able to handle failures such as controller failures, and network failures. As a part of this commitment to excellent customer service, 24/7 support is now a part of our full monitoring. Therefore, in the case of any issues or failures, we’re able to immediately assign one of our engineers to your case.
As a user and contributor to open source infrastructure, VEXXHOST knows how critical it is to our users to refrain from encountering any significant downtime. That’s why, with the upgrading of our private cloud offering, we make use of live migrations which allow us to perform any necessary maintenance without the downtime. Additionally, through our 3 controller minimum, all of our operational tools and processes are able to support high availability.
