SAN FRANCISCO, April 10, 2013 — Cloudscaling, the elastic cloud company, today announced that Ubisoft has selected Open Cloud System for production deployment. The selection was made after an in-depth evaluation of OpenStack-based cloud infrastructure options.
Ubisoft joins a series of recently announced Open Cloud System customers including LivingSocial and IBS DataFort. Open Cloud System is the first production-grade elastic cloud infrastructure software system based on OpenStack technology.
Cloudscaling was among the first commercial entities to publicly support OpenStack and has product solutions incorporating the open source project in production environments for multiple customers. It was the first company to deploy a Nova compute public cloud and the first to deploy a Swift storage public cloud outside of Rackspace. The company is a founding member of the OpenStack Foundation and a charter Gold Corporate Sponsor. Co-founder and CTO Randy Bias has served on the Foundation board since its inception, and Cloudscaling is a top-ten code contributor to the project, including ZeroMQ messaging, RPC abstraction layer, APIs for Google Compute Engine and security improvements.
“Our customer momentum is validation that the market is looking for an OpenStack-powered elastic cloud solution that is production grade,” said Michael Grant. “It’s great to have Ubisoft as a customer, as it shows that we’re on the right track when we compete head to head with other OpenStack options and win.”
Cloudscaling is the leader in elastic cloud infrastructure. The company’s core product, Open Cloud System (OCS), is the world’s most advanced OpenStack cloud infrastructure system. OCS is designed to meet the requirements of next-generation dynamic applications, delivering the agility, performance, and economic benefits of leading cloud providers, but deployable in the customer’s data center and under the IT team’s control. Cloudscaling is backed by Trinity Ventures and headquartered in San Francisco. For more information, please visit www.cloudscaling.com
