With on-demand access to cloud servers, dedicated servers, cloud storage and an advanced API, users can set up a cloud infrastructure in minutes
NephoScale is changing the way people develop and deliver software in the cloud with new infrastructure services that will enable companies to deliver applications over the Web faster and with true global scalability. NephoScale’s flagship infrastructure as a service (IaaS) offerings include cloud servers, on-demand dedicated servers and object-based cloud storage – all powered by a programmatic interface that gives users unprecedented control over their cloud infrastructure.
“We’re taking a new approach to IaaS by making it so simple for developers to autonomously set up a cloud infrastructure, that it removes the system administrator from the equation, which means companies can do even more with less,” said Bruce Templeton, president of NephoScale. “The technology we’ve built into our architecture also helps us fulfill a real industry demand by supporting PaaS functions, such as configuring and optimizing an application stack, while providing the additional services and flexibility associated with an IaaS.”
NephoScale’s cloud services platform is built on a unique architecture that is capable of scaling horizontally, vertically, and geographically, and that simplifies the creation of complex computing environments. A core company innovation is a programmatic interface called CloudScript that allows users to provision and manage all aspects of their cloud infrastructure using a single API submission.
“CloudScript is putting a level of infrastructure control into developers’ hands that they haven’t seen before,” said Templeton. “Imagine you’re a developer deploying 10 web servers with storage, firewalls and load balancers. Instead of doing individual API requests for each one, you can now do one API submission and call it done. You can begin to see how this can seriously impact efficiency and delivery times.”
NephoScale’s cloud servers and cloud storage are available on a pay-as-you-go basis, with no long-term commitment, which enables companies to reap the benefits of increased scale, improved service levels, and more reliability with little or no capital expenditure.
The company’s initial service offerings include:
- NephoScale Cloud Servers – A resilient, on-demand cloud compute service that is accessed through an easy-to-use GUI or programmatically with NephoScale’s API. Users can choose from several different Linux and Windows operating systems using pre-packaged server images (including 64-bit) and they can provision a server in minutes. Data stored on NephoScale Cloud Servers is persistent.
- NephoScale On-Demand Dedicated Servers – Servers that take advantage of the on-demand provisioning and control of the cloud, yet still benefit from the security and performance offered by the most technologically current physical hardware.
- NephoScale Object-based Cloud Storage – A highly scalable and redundant cloud storage solution that replicates objects three times, translating to uptimes in excess of 99.999%. NephoScale’s cloud storage can scale to hundreds of petabytes.
