Revolutionary IPSaaS Technology

EasyCloud™ and the Revolutionary IPSaaS Technology

IPSaaS is finally here. This is the first of its kind solution that ultimately brings the cloud to the masses.

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
Infrastructure + Platform + Software as a Service. IPSaaS is finally here. This is the first of its kind solution that ultimately brings the cloud to the masses. Combining award winning Infrastructure and “Fanatical Support” from Rackspace with the power of Openstack and virtually unlimited amounts of Software choices, EasyCloud makes using the cloud, easy. Where other Service providers focus on a single aspects of cloud computing, EasyCloud is the only “one stop shop” on the block that gets it right. This new technology allows EasyCloud to compete across multiple horizontal markets while reducing complexity for end users and avoiding proprietary lock in.

 Cloud Computing Basics : Revolutionary IPSaaS Technology

EasyCloud IPSaaS technology allows consumers to focus on using the software they choose while eliminating the complex back-end of cloud technology. Since it is interactive with the Openstack Platform it is fully dynamic and scalable with the user’s needs. Including multiple built-in features, like “white label” in-app chat support and hundreds of other API plug-ins. Compared to custom cloud deployments, the $20 starting cost really changes the game.
“Let’s say a regular customer, wanted to launch a Wordpress cloud server. It had to be a dynamic, dedicated cloud server. Where would a customer start the process? First customers need an Infrastructure provider then, he will need a platform to access a hypervisor to get it launched. Okay, now what? Well hopefully he's good in a terminal session, because now he’ll need to update his system, pull down packages, and get his LAMP stack installed and configured. Now he can finally set up Wordpress. Wait, did he forget a domain name, SSL certificates & support? So how many companies did he have to pay to accomplish that? How many different software packages did he have to use?” asks CEO Jared Rice, an award winning web developer & Pixar artist. “That is what led us to build EasyCloud. The long painful nights trying to get the various servers the team needed deployed and operational in the cloud. This isn’t just a tool for developers. It’s a product for consumers who want to take advantage of the cloud.”
There are currently over 70+ popular open source EasyCloud Servers that are fully configured and can be instantly deployed in a secure cloud environment with just a few mouse clicks; including the most popular web applications available: Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, ProjectPier, SugarCRM, Magento, Asterisk, VTiger, Ruby and many more added weekly. EasyCloud servers start at $20/month for a 256MB/10GB cloud node and they can be instantly upgraded at any time with zero downtime.
“Ask anyone outside of the IT developer community on how to use the cloud. Where to start the process.” quips, Stanley Ford, VP of Product for “Now ask all of the small and medium sized businesses out there why they aren’t using the cloud? Why aren’t regular consumers? The complexity is the killer. Couple that with not having the right IT resources along with the cost of building a custom solution and the cloud becomes prohibitive. The first release of EasyCloud on IPSaaS technology answers a key need in cloud computing that many in the industry have been predicting for some time yet until now has failed to materialize. As the team continues to grow this technology the costs will continue to decline. This is just the first stage, eventually EasyCloud will have cloud based desktop environments that compete with Microsoft Azure head to head for a fraction of the cost. There’s a lot stuff cooking in the kitchen at CloutHost, this is just the glue that binds it all together.”

Customizable Approach Offers Complete Control and Manageability Not Typically Found with Public Cloud Providers

Farmington, MI (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
All things IT are moving to the cloud, but not always to the “public cloud” according to Logicalis, an international IT solutions and managed services provider, which today is announcing a new Private Cloud Practice created to support premises-based, fully-customized cloud solutions. While competitive, semi-private cloud solutions offer the appearance of security and control, Logicalis Private Cloud solutions are tailored specifically for each customer’s environment and computing needs and the customer keeps control of all of the IT assets at the data center of their choosing. The company has a well-established history providing managed services, data center services and a variety of cloud solutions. It was recently named a “Top 100 Cloud Service Provider” by industry publication Talkin’ Cloud and a “Top 500 Solution Provider” by UBM Channel. The new practice will help organizations that are seeking the flexibility and expansion capabilities of cloud computing, with the security and access provided by a premises-based data center.
