ZNetLive Introduces OpenStack Based Public Cloud in India

14 OCTOBER 2014

ZNetLive's powerful cloud servers utilize open source OpenStack cloud platform to offer scalable RAM, CPU & storage on a pay-as-you-go hourly, resource usage based pricing model, thus fulfilling the needs of high performance applications and websites for an ideal hosting environment.

Mumbai, India- Oct 14, 2014 – ZNetLive (www.znetlive.com)India's leading web hosting provider, today announced the launch of its high performance, enterprise cloud servers based on OpenStack, an open source and scalable platform for building public and private clouds.

Cloud servers take into account the dramatic variations in resources that today's businesses undergo from one period of time to another and thus offer the flexibility of scaling up or downgrading resources as and when they are needed.

Cloud servers also provide high availability and redundancy. Each cloud server always has a physical server operating on reserve. This server is activated automatically if a problem occurs on main server's assets. In case of any problem, the cloud server on the existing physical server that has the problem is automatically transferred to the physical server backup, ensuring high service availability. This fast switching is possible because all the data of all servers are stored in central storage.

Cloud servers offer a multitude of advantages, including, but not limited to:

  • Ability to spin new resources instantly; pause, restart, upscale or downgrade resources at click of a button.
  • Burstable IOPS for demanding workloads, high application availability during spikes.
  • Automated failover, high redundancy.
  • Clone servers and take volume snapshots
  • Hourly, resource-based billing, significant cost savings
  • Freedom to run any software

ZNetLive cloud servers are implemented on the latest available version of OpenStack – Icehouse. The ninth release of the open source OpenStack software includes over 350 new features than the versions that were previously available and supports managing data, software development and application infrastructure at a mammoth scale.

"We decided to use OpenStack cloud platform for our cloud server platform following a thorough research by ZNetLive technical team. OpenStack scored over multiple other platforms available in the market in various fields, including automation, scalability, availability of features, speed with which final product is delivered, robustness and availability of latest versions," said Munesh Jadoun, Founder & CEO, ZNetLive in his recent blog post on introducing the cloud servers to Indian SMBs.

OpenStack enables ZNetLive to manage huge pools of storage, compute and networking resources across a datacenter through a single dashboard, thereby making it easy for administrators to spin a cloud and simplifying it for users to provision the needed resources and set the desired flavors through a simple web interface.

The dynamic nature of Cloud servers make them ideal for any and all business needs, from web and mobile applications to digital media and ecommerce websites. ZNetLive's OpenStack based cloud servers are available at USD 6/Mo.
