“The NetApp SolidFire commitment to build and maintain integrations with open source orchestration platforms that include Apache CloudStack, OpenStack, Docker, and Kubernetes has allowed our clients to create performance-oriented storage services that meet their shared services customers’ needs,” says Marc Paré, Chief Commercial Officer for CloudOps. “As technology migrates toward leveraging containers in the cloud, NetApp SolidFire brings very friendly capabilities in terms of QoS and persistent storage for the containers, which are key challenges that multitenant service providers are looking to solve.”
CloudOps, based in Montreal, Canada, is a cloud consulting and services company focused on helping customers own their destiny in the cloud. CloudOps uses open source cloud platforms and networking, and offers multicloud solutions for software companies, enterprises, and telecommunications providers.
To support its customers in monetizing infrastructure as a service (IaaS), CloudOps created CloudMC, on-premises subscription software that provides a one-stop self-service portal for cloud service orchestrator management and provisioning, including product catalogs, licensing, billing, and metering. Powered by all-flash storage from NetApp® (NASDAQ:NTAP) SolidFire®, the solution’s scale-out architecture makes it easy to add capacity without complexity, while the automation features and the economies of deduplication and data compression provide efficiency.
cloud.ca, a regional IaaS service, uses CloudMC for businesses that require some or all of their data to remain in Canada for reasons of compliance, performance, cost, or privacy. Accessible in both English and French, cloud.ca is used by resellers, IT administrators, developers, and DevOps teams as a scalable, reliable, and agile framework that optimizes costs and delivers transparent reporting for chargeback. As a result of using CloudMC, cloud.ca can now offer performance-oriented storage, with functions executable via application programming interfaces and persistent storage for Docker container environments. With CloudMC, cloud.ca is confident and well positioned to support customer compliance, cost, and privacy concerns for the foreseeable future.
