The Elastic Cloud Company

Cloudscaling serves enterprises, service providers and web application providers who want elastic cloud infrastructure to deliver the agility, performance, and economic benefits of public clouds like Amazon Web Services, but deployable in the customer’s datacenter and under the IT team’s control.

Across industries, businesses require infrastructure that supports rapid application development and deployment. Dynamic applications, automated scale-out and faster time to market become possible on top of elastic infrastructure. Open Cloud System (OCS) is purpose-built to address this need.

Cloudscaling embraces the OpenStack project as a core technology. The company’s engineering team comprises more production OpenStack and elastic cloud experience than any other company, with successful deployments at KT (formerly Korea Telecom), Internap and others. The Cloudscaling team are industry veterans who have designed and deployed large-scale cloud infrastructure for cloud pioneers such as AWS, NASA, GoGrid, RightScale and eBay.
