What is Public Cloud?

The public cloud provides you with on-demand infrastructure components such as compute, networking, and in some cases, services that sit on top of these infrastructure components. The infrastructure is generally shared in the sense that you have a fully isolated virtual machine; however, it is collocated with other virtual machines belonging to other customers in that cloud.

OpenStack Public Cloud

OpenStack LogoOpenStack stands out among the plethora of cloud options because it provides the flexibility of technology virtualization like no other solutions available in the market. OpenStack is an enterprise cloud-based computing platform. It’s a highly successful open-source solution due to the numerous benefits it offers, such as allowing enterprises to control the storage, processing, and networking of resources throughout all areas of their data center. OpenStack has a healthy ecosystem, and users seeking commercial support can choose from different OpenStack-powered products and services in the market.

VEXXHOST is a high-performance cloud infrastructure provider that offers secure & reliable OpenStack based solutions for Developers & Enterprises. A cloud provider like VEXXHOST is all about progressiveness and providing the very best service for its customers. Some of the latest announcements include:

Passport Program

VEXXHOST is proud to join the Passport program as an OpenStack Passport Provider, allowing potential users to be free to roam the cloud right for them. VEXXHOST OpenStack Passport provides free trials of all public cloud services, including securely hosted virtual machines, networking, object or block storage, orchestration, load balancing, big data, file sharing, cloud images, and container services.

IPv6 Launch

After conducting all IPv6 tests, VEXXHOST’s infrastructure is automatically assigned an IPv6 address using SLAAC (stateless auto-configuration). This way, users do not have to do anything on their server and will see that it will have an existing pre-configured IPv6 address. Users can also find their IPv6 address in the control panel in the server overview as well.

SSH Public Key Authentication

Additionally, the company removed server passwords across its public and private cloud offerings. So, for all newly provisioned servers, they will have to be deployed with public and private key pairs for secure authentication. With the public key infrastructure in cloud computing, customers are now able to deploy anything within OpenStack by leveraging the standard tooling, which relies on public keys. Also, by taking out the cloud agent requirement on our servers, you can now upload any image to our platform, and it will run with zero problems at all. With this step, the public cloud has officially become 100% upstream, pure OpenStack.

Benefits of OpenStack Public Cloud

An OpenStack public cloud has multiple advantages such as self-management, shared hardware, replacing capital expenses (CAPEX) with operational expenses (OPEX), and modernizing applications when data center resources are limited. It also gives access to a wide range of languages, tools, and services. However, implementation of the public cloud is best suitable for companies where security and compliance are less of an issue.

Benefits for Enterprises

It does not matter whether your company is a multibillion-dollar publicly traded enterprise or a small startup; you can use OpenStack public clouds with services that compete with major public cloud providers. Benefits of public cloud are reaped by enterprises in terms of excellent industry support, compatibility, user experience, cost effectiveness, scalability, security, aiding observability, and an easy to manage panel. We’re here to help you tackle any challenges of migrating to a public cloud solution.

Public Cloud Pricing

A public cloud solution has its own set of advantages when it comes to cost-efficiency. Primarily, public clouds are considered to be the least wasteful deployment option since they offer on-demand provisioning of resources. It enables the customer to avoid investments or capacity planning exercises altogether, a notable differentiator from private cloud deployment. Additionally, companies can save money with public cloud pricing by sidestepping fees for management or support, and discounts are sometimes offered as well for longer-term contract agreements.
