What is OpenCloud?
OpenCloud is EvoSwitch’s cloud-neutral, partner-rich cloud interconnection platform. With dozens of active members and growing, OpenCloud creates a dynamic marketplace for the sale, development and consumption of next generation cloud architecture. It brings together enterprises, networks, cloud infrastructure providers, specialist partners, and leading Internet Exchanges, offering a huge variety of low latency cloud connection options.
Public and Hybrid Cloud Solutions
Your business can connect directly to public Clouds like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform or IBM Softlayer, bypassing the public Internet to enhance speed and security. You can select from a wide range of specialist cloud service providers that can help design the right cloud model and back up, secure, orchestrate and synchronize their data. It’s a perfect environment for building hybrid clouds, combining the compliance or latency-sensitivity of a private cloud with the scalability of the major public cloud providers.
Browse and Build in a Cloud-Neutral Environment
Location matters for Hybrid Cloud architecture. At EvoSwitch, you can benefit from low-latency direct routes to the major Public Cloud providers you want. This enables you to leverage Public Cloud for less latency-sensitive data or applications, while keeping other data in a Private Cloud, for compliancy or latency purposes.
Neutrality also delivers business advantages by promoting a dynamic marketplace. Cloud consumers can search for network services and partners and contact them directly to discuss their requirements. Service providers can generate new revenue while users enjoy competitive offers and complete flexibility, adding and subtracting services as and when needed. And EvoSwitch is always on hand to offer balanced expert advice.
Neutrality is key to the OpenCloud concept. Because OpenCloud is neutral, you can leverage the full power of the marketplace. You avoid lock-in, run multiple clouds in multiple markets, and look forward to growing choice as new partners sign up and existing partners expand their services.
