ATLANTA, Oct. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Internap Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a provider of high-performance Internet infrastructure services, today announced the general availability of the next generation of its bare-metal Infrastructure-as-a-Service offering, AgileSERVER 2.0. A high-performance IaaS option, AgileSERVER 2.0 features significant hardware, networking and management advancements designed to meet the needs of enterprises and devops teams deploying mission-critical applications and big-data workloads on OpenStack.
Trends such as big data growth, the increase in rich media and the app economy are driving the need for high-performance infrastructure across nearly every major industry. Organizations are increasingly encountering performance limitations and spiraling costs with commodity public cloud platforms, particularly as they scale out their application environments. Since 2012, companies with performance-reliant workloads – such as eXelate, Taptica, Distil Networks, CrowdStar and more – have been turning to Internap's automated bare-metal service, AgileSERVER, to build global, scale-out application environments. AgileSERVER combines the dedicated processing power of bare metal with the agility of the cloud, allowing companies to achieve peak performance and scalability for mission critical workloads.
Key features of AgileSERVER 2.0:
AgileSERVER 2.0 availability
AgileSERVER 2.0 is available immediately out of Internap's New York metro area data center in Secaucus, New Jersey. Internap expects to roll out AgileSERVER 2.0 to its Dallas, Santa Clara and Amsterdam facilities by the end of the year and expand to additional international locations, including Montreal and Singapore, in the first half of 2016.
