CIeNET Releases New OpenStack-based Private Cloud Services

December, 2012, Beijing

CIeNET Technologies, a leading technology service provider announces its launch of new Cloud Services, which is based on the open source platform OpenStack. CIeNET Cloud Services provides enterprises easy and cost effective deployments to the latest cloud technology. CIeNET brings enterprises the virtualization, cloud storage and IaaS environment for their own private clouds, especially SMEs with limited IT staff and cloud expertise.

 

Low-Cost, High-efficiency with OpenStack

CIeNET presented “The Practice of Deploying OpenStack in SMEs” at the OpenStack APAC Conference on August 11, 2012. The presentation provided an in-depth analysis and a new perspective on the basic concepts of cloud enablement such as, reasons for deployment, strategy for deployment, and challenges with OpenStack execution in cloud technology.

Most SMEs have limited knowledge regarding cloud technology for internal application. There are many doubts for even large software development companies. There are questions such as “what is cloud technology; why is cloud needed; why does a company need cloud deployment; what happens without cloud deployment?”  More importantly is the issue on the cost for cloud deployment; “will it help reduce cost, capitalize on the benefits, or create a new profit model after the deployment?”

“We suggest enterprises to develop a gradual implementation strategy for cloud computing deployment.” CIeNET’s Chief Architect explained a cost-effective strategy for implementation, “CIeNET’s initial phase design for cloud deployment did not involve any additional hardware purchasing or investment in high-performance, high-availability processing. We only backed-up control nodes and didn’t consider special situations and conditions. We used a few medium to high-end machines as the control and compute nodes and used ordinary hardware for storage which provided significant cost savings.”

There are many cloud operating systems in the market and CIeNET chooses to use OpenStack for its openness, simplicity and popularity in application. OpenStack has become the choice of many large enterprises. It is not only an open and scalable operating system for building public and private clouds, but offers flexibility and choice through a highly engaged community of over 180 companies. All the companies use OpenStack as a general front-end of creating infrasturcture-as-a-Service (IaaS).
