About Us

Who VEXXHOST is, our mission and what we have to offer.

Our Mission & Vision

We believe in offering businesses more freedom through the use of an open-source platform. This way, our company can provide infrastructure solutions without the burden of license-fees or vendor lock-ins. Additionally, we know how important it is to be community-driven, so we are in the heart of it all. Therefore, VEXXHOST makes sure to not only remain avid contributors and users of the OpenStack community but also attendees, sponsors, and organizers of events surrounding the open-source community.

Our company also believes in providing services that strive for security, quality, performance, and innovation while allowing businesses to save money. As a result, we only use enterprise-grade hardware and certified solutions, work with data centers undergoing some of the strictest regulations, and have a team of experts dispersed worldwide for 24/7 monitoring. We continuously offer the latest product upgrades, look for new innovative tools, and provide management of these tools as a service for a hassle-free experience.

Finally, VEXXHOST believes in the power of choice. With nine years of experience with OpenStack, we can help you complete a variety of projects with your cloud infrastructure and with multiple managed solutions. This way, you can get right where you want to be.

Our History

Established in 2006, VEXXHOST was initially a web hosting provider that offered services from shared hosting to VPS. However, with the advancement of cloud technologies, VEXXHOST decided to move to more innovative options such as cloud hosting. This leap to cloud-based hosting garnered a positive response, encouraging our company to invest further in cloud-based solutions. In 2011, VEXXHOST adopted OpenStack software for its infrastructure. Since then, VEXXHOST has been an active contributor and an avid user of OpenStack. Currently, VEXXHOST provides OpenStack Public Cloud and Private Cloud infrastructure and services, along with a range of Cloud Solutions to customers, from small businesses to enterprises across the world.

VEXXHOST is committed to working with its users to help architect, configure, and optimize their cloud infrastructure to reduce expenses and increase productivity. Our company also delivers a high level of expertise to clients, enabling them to focus on their core competencies.

With our operational experience of running Canada’s biggest OpenStack public cloud and many large private clouds, we can help you by:

  • Running your cloud without the stress and hassle of vendor lock-in
  • Reducing costs by offering competitive pricing compared to other providers
  • Accelerating your ability to innovate and increase internal operational efficiency
  • Providing complete end-to-end planning, architecture and best practices support
  • Providing expertise on Kubernetes enablement, OpenStack upgrades and consulting

Our OpenStack Involvement

VEXXHOST has been contributing to the OpenStack community since Bexar, its second release in 2011. We have also maintained a presence in the community by regularly attending OpenStack summits and being part of the Interop challenge during the Boston summit in 2017. You can read about the Interop challenge here. Our company has hosted OpenStack Canada day and has helped organize the Montreal OpenStack meetup as well. Additionally, our co-founder, Mohammed Naser, who is the PTL for OpenStack Ansible and part of the OpenStack Technical Committee, has given talks at Montreal, Ottawa, and Toronto OpenStack meetups, CERN, Ansiblefest as well as OpenStack Summits all over the world.

Our company also plays a part in the community by actively contributing upstream code and sharing feedback with PTLs and developers. When we encounter bugs, we report them, diagnose them, and work with the community to get a full fix. Additionally, VEXXHOST is active on the mailing list and provides feedback and repairs, too.

We are also corporate sponsors and infrastructure donors for the OpenStack infrastructure team.

VEXXHOST exclusively runs OpenStack managed services across our entire infrastructure. We offer fully certified OpenStack powered cloud solutions that have been validated through testing to provide API compatibility for OpenStack core services. Our offering is fully open-source without any proprietary licensed technology. Additionally, we are currently running Ussuri. Just as in the past, we implemented the update on our clouds on the same day as the release.
