Internap Network Services Corporation (NASDAQ:INAP) is set to provide public cloud services for both VMware and the open source OpenStack cloud platforms.
By providing both stacks, Internap is aiming to provide more choice and data resiliency for cloud customers.
"CIOs' reception to the dual-hypervisor stack is positive, most have virtualized internally using VMware as a server consolidation play, and they are looking at a cloud that supports VMware as well as open source," Paul Carmody SVP, product management at Internap told InternetNews.com. "We know that just like Linux grew to replace Solaris in the enterprise, people will get used to open source alternatives, and enterprises want to choose a vendor that will allow them to migrate in that direction."
