QTS launches public OpenStack Cloud

QTS launches a public Infrastructure-as-a-Service cloud to one of its data centers

QTS has added an OpenStack cloud to its list of services by launching a public IaaS cloud in one of its data centers on the east coast. This service is powered by Canonical’s OpenStack distro.

In an interview, Jon Greaves, CTO of QTS said :

Until recently, QTS has provided public and private IaaS cloud based on VMware only.

With the addition of OpenStack capabilities, the company is going after customers that are building cloud-native applications whose IT teams are more DevOps-oriented.

The company claims that customers prefer the private cloud to be based on OpenStack rather than VMware, since many of the DevOps tools they use support OpenStack.
