Quanta QCT, a leading manufacturer of server, storage and network equipment for datacenter customers in the United States, is the first integrated datacenter solutions provider to earn certification of its hardware on the Cloudscaling Open Cloud System.
Cloudscaling describes Open Cloud System as the most reliable, scalable, and production-grade solution available for building elastic clouds powered by OpenStack technology. Elastic cloud refers to infrastructure that supports new, dynamic cloud applications like big data, mobile, web, Platform-as-a-Service and online gaming. Elastic clouds are open, flexible and deliver attractive economics for not only deploying and managing dynamic applications, but also efficiently scaling them. The most widely known examples of elastic clouds are Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Compute Engine (GCE).
Quanta QCT servers, storage and network switches are the first hardware to be certified running OCS. Cloudscaling and Quanta QCT are the first partners to bring to market an elastic cloud solution that delivers the benefits of elastic public clouds to the customer’s datacenter. Customers for the first time have a production-grade private elastic cloud infrastructure on which to manage their dynamic cloud applications.
“Cloudscaling is leading the way in cloud systems that deliver the benefits of elastic public clouds, but as a private cloud within the customer datacenter,” said Mike Yang, general manager and vice president of Quanta QCT. “Quanta QCT is honored to be the first datacenter solutions provider to certify elastic cloud optimized hardware for Open Cloud System.”
"Cost-effective hardware without proprietary lock-in is a crucial part of the elastic cloud value proposition," said Troy Angrignon, vice president, business development and partnerships at Cloudscaling. "Effective immediately, our customers can access reference blueprints of Quanta QCT hardware to deploy elastic clouds."
About Quanta QCT
Quanta QCT provides a comprehensive line of off-the-shelf server, storage and networking solutions to datacenter customers in the United States. Quanta QCT targets midsize and large enterprises, governments and service providers who want the engineering excellence of a global manufacturer of integrated datacenter solutions, but do not require the scale and resources of a full-service ODM. Quanta QCT is headquartered in Fremont, Calif., and its parent company is Quanta Computer, Inc., a $37 billion original design manufacturer.
Quanta QCT is the only company that delivers all of the major components of the datacenter value chain: server, storage and networking equipment design and manufacturing capability in a single, proven resource. Presently, datacenters are built with server, storage and networking equipment from different manufacturers. While the industry has adapted to this inefficiency, QCT now makes it possible for datacenters to work with a single manufacturer to verify that the solution is engineered to deliver their targeted technical and cost performance benchmarks.
