Web hosting and cloud solutions provider InMotion Hosting is increasing its commitment to open source, building upon an OpenStack Foundation corporate sponsorship announced today. The OpenStack Foundation corporate sponsorship is the first step in a renewed investment by Inmotion Hosting in open source software and business development.
“InMotion Hosting believes in the open source community and wants to give back in various ways, such as our Corporate Sponsorship of the OpenStack Foundation,” said Todd Robinson, co-founder and president of InMotion Hosting. “OpenStack is a critical part of open source alternatives to the mega public clouds. Our focus on making OpenStack easy to deploy and manage will give more options for small and medium businesses looking to join the OpenStack user base.”
Flex Metal Cloud
Currently in development, InMotion Hosting’s latest product Flex Metal Cloud is an on-demand private cloud solution powered by OpenStack. Flex Metal Cloud’s hyperconverged infrastructure would simplify cloud deployments, increase flexibility, and maximize resources. With up-front pricing and usage-based billing, Inmotion Hosting claims it to be a cost-effective choice over public clouds.
Flex Metal Cloud users will be able to deploy “safely and quickly” in a production-ready environment with the assistance of InMotion Hosting’s support team. Plus, all of InMotion Hosting’s supporting content will help guide those who want to test and explore on their own. Created with an open source mindset, Inmotion hosting’s reference architecture will be publicly available to anyone.
