OpenMetal, a division of InMotion Hosting (IMH), launches a disruptive new platform that transforms the risk and pain of private clouds by enabling IT teams, regardless of size or cloud expertise, to deploy private OpenStack clouds in under 45 seconds.
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., March 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — OpenMetal is seeking to transform the IaaS and cloud landscape by rolling out OpenMetal On-Demand Private Clouds (powered by OpenStack) designed to deliver a true "as-a-service" private cloud that is accessible and affordable to small teams and enterprise organizations.
Incubated from InMotion Hosting’s Flex Metal Cloud solution, this next-generation OpenMetal platform challenges OpenStack’s common perceptions of setup complexity, mass IT staff resource allocation for operation, and high risks of failure. OpenMetal On-Demand Private Clouds start off with a 3 server hyper-converged cloud core already warmed up and ready to be deployed for service in under 45 seconds and billed on an hourly basis. This makes builds and deployments, even very small clouds on OpenStack, trivial to deploy and easy to scale up and down on-demand.
"When it comes to choosing cloud, private clouds have always been the gold standard for greater control over security and costs, but complicated to set up," said Todd Robinson, President of OpenMetal. "When these setups fail, it weakens the open source community around OpenStack. To drive greater adoption of open source systems, we felt it was imperative to simplify setup and ease the adoption of OpenStack. With OpenMetal, any company, regardless of size or skill, can now spin up on-demand private clouds with no risk or wait."
OpenMetal’s commitment to the open source community includes a Silver Foundation Membership in the Open Infrastructure Foundation, and serving as an Infrastructure Donor to support projects like Zuul, a Project Gating System. OpenMetal will continue collaborating with the open infrastructure community to add new features and functionality. Together we plan to further simplify private cloud deployments, increase infrastructure flexibility, and ensure it remains as a cost-effective open source choice over the mega public clouds.
"The mission of the Open Infrastructure Foundation is to build the next decade of open infrastructure software, through a community of more than 100,000 members who know how to build software like OpenStack that runs in production," says Mark Collier, COO, OpenInfra Foundation. "Solving the problem of making dedicated infrastructure available to smaller organizations that might lack the confidence to deploy on their own is something OpenMetal has designed these on-demand private clouds to address, and we’re excited to learn about their experiences implementing OpenStack Ironic as a service for bare metal, and bring those learnings back to the community."
