Canonical
on 22 August 2016


OVERLAND PARK, KANSAS, and LONDON, U.K. (August 22, 2016) – Responding to increasing demand for flexible, open source and cost-predictable cloud solutions, QTS Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE: QTS) and Canonical (the company behind Ubuntu, the leading operating system for container cloud, scale out, and hyperscale computing) announced today a private, fully managed OpenStack cloud solution available from any of QTS’ geographically diverse and highly secure data centers in mid-September.

Built on Ubuntu OpenStack, the world’s most popular OpenStack distribution, and using Canonical’s application modeling service Juju as well as Canonical’s Bare Metal as a Service (MaaS), QTS’ private, fully managed OpenStack cloud enables enterprise customers to perform quick and easy provisioning, orchestration, and management of cloud resources. Examples include:

  • Building software-as-a-service applications, either as new developments or as improvements upon existing solutions.
  • Serving as a base for delivering self-service storage and service on demand to users who need IT services.
  • Delivering object storage or block storage on demand.
  • Saving on licensing fees associated with virtualization technologies.

In addition to the Private Cloud Offering, QTS offer a public, multi-tenant pay-as-you-go OpenStack cloud solution that is self-provisioning, elastic and highly scalable.

“As a leading data center and IT infrastructure services provider, QTS is focused on delivering seamless hybrid cloud hosting solutions using proven, best-in-breed platform technologies,” said Anand Krishnan, Executive Vice President, Canonical Cloud. “We are pleased to support QTS’ delivery of OpenStack solutions that combine the rapid availability and elasticity of compute resources with the security and control their enterprise customers demand to support their mission critical applications and workloads.”

The new OpenStack solution is an important addition to QTS’ expanding portfolio of scalable, secure and compliant IaaS solutions and complements other QTS’ purpose-built clouds serving public sector, healthcare and enterprise workloads.

“QTS OpenStack Cloud is the latest addition as we expand our Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offerings to create a one-stop shop for flexible IaaS and hybrid IT solutions that address increasingly diverse customer requirements,” said Jon Greaves, Chief Technology Officer, QTS. “Canonical is an industry leader in OpenStack management and technologies and we look forward to working closely as we unleash OpenStack Cloud solutions across our geographically diverse platform of integrated data centers.”

The fully managed cloud solution is being previewed at OpenStack East in New York City August 23-24 at Canonical booth # H12.
