(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.

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.”
