Datalounges Utilizing SUSE OpenStack
SUSE has recently announced Datalounges., an enterprise cloud service provider that utilizes SUSE OpenStack Cloud to provide a cloud service environment for companies of a myriad of sizes. SUSE OpenStack Cloud is Datalounges platform for delivering enterprise cloud services as well as support services. Kai Kankaala, board adviser, Sales, at Datalounges, stated,” SUSE OpenStack Cloud gives our customers the power to do anything they want. We are seeing rapid growth in customers building their own revenue-generating services on our platform. They focus on their business opportunity, and we provide the robust cloud service that underpins it.”
Because Datalounges has focused on fully supported infrastructures instead of individual servers, the company has grown rapidly. Customers have the power to choose anything from a self-managed to a fully managed solution. SUSE Manager is being utilized to give customers end-to-end coverage for the fully managed environment. Datalounges is currently in the process of developing its own tool based on OpenStack Ceilometer for managing and automating virtual infrastructure.
Kankaala later commented, “SUSE OpenStack Cloud has been our cloud services platform from day one. We also tested pure OpenStack and the Red Hat variant. The SUSE option was superior in terms of pricing, the enterprise-level support and built-in automation features. We want to be the best OpenStack cloud computing service provider in Finland. That’s why we partnered with SUSE.”
Mark Smith, senior marketing manager of cloud solutions at SUSE, has commented, “Datalounges’ success with SUSE OpenStack Cloud is a clear example of OpenStack’s maturation as the leading open source solution for private cloud. Many businesses are seeking greater agility, speed and flexibility to create new, innovative projects to fuel business growth. That’s where SUSE OpenStack Cloud ties in, providing customers with a pain-free private cloud experience with built-in high-availability in a production-ready solution.”
