International cloud and edge solution provider, G-Core Labs, a company located in Luxembourg, has announced the launch of its public cloud. The company’s public cloud platform features a multifunctional virtual data center. It would allow organizations of any size and from any field to scale their IT infrastructure in just a few clicks.
The G-Core Labs public cloud is based in Luxembourg. Other locations including Moscow, Frankfurt, Singapore, Sidney, Santa Clara, São Paolo, and Khabarovsk are yet to follow.
G-Core Labs’ public cloud would also allow for developing, testing, and launching of new products and services without developers having to buy expensive equipment. It provides online companies (from media, banks, insurance companies, game developers and publishers, to online retail stores, educational and healthcare services) quick access to “powerful high-quality” development and business operation tools that can be scaled up as soon as a necessity arises. For example, to withstand a peak influx of website users during a sale period, or to launch a new document scanning service, which can be important for healthcare and financial companies.
“All these tasks can be performed with the help of our public cloud,” said Vsevolod Vayner, Cloud Platform Department Head at G-Core Labs. “Here in your personal account you can order a specific set of any capacities for your needs, and you pay only for the resources you actually use by the minute, utilizing a pay-as-you-go model. Today, our public cloud already offers a standard functionality of cross-functional virtual machines, not limited in capacity, with the options of smooth automatic scaling, system backup, and data disaster recovery. We allow our clients to create virtual cloud networks where they can set up private clusters to do necessary computations or to isolate a certain set of applications within their own cloud network.”
CDN, Kubernetes, AI
The G-Core Labs public cloud is integrated with the company’s other products and services, including their international content delivery network (CDN). G-Core Labs’ CDN service delivers DDoS attack protection at the net protocol level; a cloud object data repository; a media platform for streaming and providing videos on demand; and more.
Within platform services, or PaaS, G-Core Labs plans to add an option of auto-deploying Kubernetes clusters for container orchestration soon, to finish the integration of a platform for developing, testing, and launching AI applications and Hadoop-based systems for working with big data. Currently, G-Core Labs together with customers and partners is already working on a number of pilot projects related to neural networks.
Earlier, G-Core Labs successfully completed a number of private cloud system projects, including private cloud solutions for one of the biggest online game developers and publishers – Wargaming (a gaming company known from World of Tanks, World of Warships, and other titles).
