Trace3, a systems integrator and IT consultancy company with offices in cities across the U.S., has officially added Metacloud’s on-premise private cloud as well as its private cloud hosting solution to the Trace3 portfolio. The two OpenStack-based Metacloud solutions Trace3 will be offering are Metacloud OnPrem and Metacloud Hosted.
Metacloud OnPrem is designed for customers that want to leverage their existing hardware and data center facilities for private cloud initiatives. Metacloud Hosted is a turn-key private cloud hosting solution that provides it all – hardware, software, expert support, and secured hosting – for companies that either don’t own those assets, or simply do not want to be involved in day-to-day cloud management.
“We carefully evaluated a number of OpenStack solutions, and determined that Metacloud had the right approach,” said Anoj Willy, Trace3’s Cloud Practice Director. “Our customers want public cloud agility with predictable performance, data locality, and security, and Metacloud OnPrem brings all that to the table. Their focus on cloud operations is extremely important to us.”
“We also knew their non-prescriptive hardware model would appeal to customers looking for maximum flexibility,” added Willy. “Our plan is to make Metacloud a key component in our broader cloud strategy.”

They’re only going to present Metacloud solutions when and where they make sense. We really appreciate that philosophy and that level of integrity.”
