Internap Recognized for its Bare-metal Cloud Leadership

By Michael Guta

As more organizations move to the cloud, they want the same solutions they had on-premises to be available in the cloud environment. With so many different service providers and services available to organizations such as Infrastructure as a service (IaaS), Platform as a service (PaaS), Software as a service (SaaS) on public or private cloud, cloud management challenges can be overwhelming. Bare-metal cloud is designed to provide organizations the entire server’s computing power to your application by combining non-virtualized, physical resources with the service delivery and automation capabilities of the cloud.

Internap Network Services Corporation (INAP) has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan with the 2014 North American Cloud Services: Competitive Strategy Innovation and Leadership Award for its bare-metal cloud offering along with commitment to delivering a positive customer experience and hybrid portfolio, including colocation, hosting and cloud services.

The need for bare-metal cloud is growing as organizations look to superior performance, security of single-tenant dedicated servers, flexible option of pay-as-you-go, and on-demand provisioning associated with virtualized servers.

Bare-metal cloud performance is key in today's data intensive environments. As organizations of all sizes start implementing big data analytics as part of their operations, this platform delivers dedicating processing resources of a physical server. Along with this power, it provides reliable security because the entire server is dedicated to the customer, this means the risks associated with a multitenant environment due to other users is minimized. This platform also allows ease of use and control with instant provisioning and flexible billing so customers can pay only for what they use.

The solutions Internap offers was evaluated amongst its competitors based on: total customer experience, product/service value, service experience, navigational positioning, execution excellence and technological sophistication.

"As enterprises increase their reliance on data analytics and other performance-sensitive computing workloads, the market opportunity for bare-metal cloud will also grow,” said Lynda Stadtmueller, program director of cloud services at Stratecast, Frost & Sullivan. “Internap's bare-metal cloud complements the company's traditional hosting and cloud services to deliver proven levels of throughput and performance, even for workloads not previously considered good candidates for cloud."
