LONDON, July 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

OnApp has announced that ICN.Bg, the largest public cloud provider in Bulgaria, has joined the OnApp Federation - the world's largest public cloud. As a member of the OnApp Federation, ICN.Bg can give its customers on-demand access to more than 170 compute cloud and CDN locations, in 113 cities across 43 countries, and use the OnApp Federation to sell its own Tier III cloud infrastructure to cloud providers globally. ICN.Bg was the first public cloud provider in Bulgaria, and now the first Bulgarian provider to join the OnApp Federation.

Having access to the OnApp Federation means local businesses can use ICN.Bg to host their applications in new global markets, with low-latency performance for global users, while benefiting from local language support. ICN.Bg can now also offer much more granular control of where applications and data are hosted, which is important for public sector clients and other organisations concerned about data sovereignty.

Julian Borislavov, CEO of ICN.Bg, said: "The OnApp Federation lets us extend our local cloud to the world, a key selling point for clients with location-dependent or latency-sensitive applications. We work with many e-commerce companies, design agencies, media and advertising companies, who can now instantly reach users in new markets. The Federation's widespread compute cloud coverage also helps with larger clients' need to control where data is hosted, for compliance."

The OnApp Federation gives service providers like ICN.Bg access to global compute cloud and CDN infrastructure through a wholesale, on-demand marketplace. ICN.Bg can also use the marketplace to sell its own Tier III datacentre capacity in Sofia to other providers. This expands the OnApp Federation with new high quality cloud locations in Central Europe, enable clients of other service providers to deploy applications close to users in central Europe, and enables ICN.Bg to monetise spare cloud capacity.

"Location is everything for businesses hosting their apps in the cloud," said OnApp's Chief Commercial Officer, Kosten Metreweli. "For e-commerce applications, CRM systems, content management systems, advertising platforms and a whole host of other applications, it's essential to provide great performance for users wherever they are. Bulgarian cloud customers can now come to ICN.Bg, and use this global computer network to reach users and markets around the world."
