Unitas Enterprise Cloud Service Uses OpenStack Liberty to Facilitate Hybrid Cloud Migrations

By Laura Stotler

MSP Unitas Global has announced a new Enterprise Cloud service built on the open source software OpenStack Liberty. The new service is designed to simplify enterprise migration to open, hybrid cloud computing using flexible and secure cloud environments. Custom, dedicated cloud-based IT environments may be supported dynamically using the solution, and are fully managed and hosted as well as backed by SLAs for application uptime.

The new Enterprise Private Cloud service features enhanced security, including encryption, secure data messaging and physical separation of tenants. It also ensures compliance with SOC, ISO:27001 and HIPAA and provides deployment validation, performance testing and benchmarking. The service also offers bare metal and virtual machine management with full visibility into the OpenStack environment using the Unitas Atlas unified monitoring platform.

"OpenStack's 12th release represents a significant milestone in terms of technical maturity and enables even more enterprises to make the move to open, hybrid cloud computing environments," said Grant Kirkwood, founder & CTO of Unitas Global. "Unitas helps architect and guide enterprise customers through deploying and operating custom OpenStack environments to create open, dynamic and production-grade clouds without the complexity and hassle associated with going it alone."

OpenStack Liberty represents the 12th version of the open source cloud-building software and supports the Unitas goal of offering managed and hosted cloud services to those enterprises seeking hybrid solutions. An open source environment offers variety without vendor lock-in and helps companies avoid many of the traditional challenges involved with building and maintaining production-grade cloud environments.

Additional features of the Unitas Enterprise Cloud service include native container management of Kubernetes, Docker, Swarm and Mesos solutions. The offering also enables scalability and enhanced geographic reach of cloud environments by using Nova compute cells. The service ultimately offers enterprises uniform configuration management along with enterprise-grade reliability and stability so they may confidently migrate their networks to a hybrid cloud environment.
